The Lincoln, Santa Fe's most luxurious downtown building, is located less than a block from the Plaza, literally in the heart of historic Santa Fe. This lovely building, set at the corner of Lincoln and Marcy Streets in the center of town, rises to five stories, higher than any other lodging property in the city, and matched by only a few other buildings at all. Our Residence Four East, with three king en suite bedrooms, occupies the premier spot high in this iconic downtown building, with views up to the Sangre de Cristo mountains and the Santa Fe ski basin flooding in through floor to ceiling windows. One can easily see the Plaza from the wrap-around patios surrounding this fourth floor retreat. The Santa Fe Convention Center is steps away, the historic Indian Market gathering is right out the front door, along with many downtown restaurants, shops, galleries and museums. Everything you need is literally at your feet, as nothing else in the city comes close to this airy and luxurious residence, perfectly furnished in a modern, light style and with every amenity, including Frette linens.
Entering from the Lincoln's private elevator lobby, you will likely experience the surreal feeling that all of our guests have had, that of being in a totally different place than you expected. The modern style is perfectly in keeping with the simple, clean lines and colors of Georgia O'Keeffe's beloved home near Abiquiu. Cool, crisp and completely renovated, the residence's smartly designed and generous 2500 square feet immediately draw you in, and from room to room. Natural light flows into the open plan living, dining and kitchen spaces from the tall windows and doors that dominate two long walls. The light Venetian plaster walls are complemented by scraped wood floors, the whole effect a return to the truly classic, original Santa Fe style, when pure, spare and simple ruled the day.
The Residence Four East sleeps six people in the three bedroom suites, all with king beds and clean, custom-tiled en suite bathrooms. An additional powder bath is easily accessible from a hallway near the living spaces.
The master bedroom, located at the opposite end of the unit from the guest bedrooms for more privacy, has a king bed and its own patio. It is a calm retreat, complete with hand-worked wood floors, large closets, a gas fireplace and large French doors to the sunny patio. The master bathroom is complete with spacious walk-in shower, tiled by the hands of a supremely skilled artisan, stone-topped vanity and custom cabinetry.
At the opposite end of the casita, the two king-bedded guest suites each feature a lovely bathroom with more custom tile work and cabinetry, a walk-in shower with European glass shower door, and spacious walk-in closet. These lovely suites also feature diamond plaster walls, wood floors, luxurious linens and their own TVs. One bedroom includes a work space complete with desk, if you find it necessary to interrupt your serene stay in that fashion!
The central common spaces of this fine residence flow into one another, without unnecessary dividing walls. The gorgeous kitchen is fresh and bright, with custom cabinets and smooth granite accentuating the stainless steel appliances. The living room is large and comfortably furnished, with a fireplace and a massive beam providing definition to this perfect space. You will be hypnotized by the views flooding in from all angles when you are in the living spaces, as they are magnificent, and unavoidable. For dining with your group, a long table seats eight with ease, more if needed. The patios are accessible from the living and dining areas, giving you the option of dining alfresco throughout much of the year.
Other amenities include a fully equipped laundry room, custom soaps and bath supplies, satellite television, free WiFi, soft Frette linens, comfy bathrobes and plentiful pillows; parking for two cars is included as well.
At Residence Four East, you are placing yourself in the perfect spot to access all that Santa Fe has to offer, with the minimum of effort. High above the city, close to all it has to offer, you are less than a block from the Plaza, Palace of the Governors/New Mexico History Museum, O'Keeffe Museum, New Mexico Museum of Art and the Convention Center, as well as several exceptional restaurants, plus churches and other sites of interest, and dining and shopping options galore.
The Lincoln provides the perfect in-town base for your exploration of this unique environment, and a retreat to savor the experiences at day's end. Residence Four East is excellent for two or three couples or a family gathering at any time of year.

Visiting Santa Fe > Performing Arts > Music
Founded in 1982 by Larry Bandfield, the Santa Fe Desert Chorale is one of the longest continually performing professional music organizations in New Mexico, as well as one of the most distinguished. The Chorale was a recipient of the 2006 Mayor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts and in 2016 was named the “Best Choral Group of Santa Fe” by the Santa Fe Reporter. Scott Cantrell of The Dallas Morning News characterized the Chorale as presenting “stunning singing…incredible power.”
Now entering his ninth season as Music Director, Joshua Habermann leads the 24-voice professional Chorale in repertoire spanning seven centuries, from medieval polyphony to contemporary works. The composition of the Chorale is truly national in scope and the ensemble is recognized among the finest American chamber choirs.
Throughout its history, the Chorale has maintained a commitment to give voice to music from Hispanic and Native American communities. Dedicated to advancing the composers of our time, the Chorale has commissioned twenty-two works by eighteen composers; three quarters of the composers commissioned have been American. In addition, another seven works have been given their world or American premieres by the Santa Fe Desert Chorale. The ensemble performs at historical sites in Santa Fe such as the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis and the Loretto Chapel, as well as other venues throughout the Southwest. A recent highlight was an invitational appearance at the 2015 American Choral Directors Association National Conference in Utah which was later broadcast by Minnesota Public Radio.
The Santa Fe Desert Chorale presents both summer and winter festivals of concerts featuring a wide range of literature from around the world. The 2017 Summer Festival Season will take place from July 19 through August 13, 2017.

San Miguel Mission
This Spanish Colonial mission church is considered to be the country's oldest church. Built by Tlaxcala Indians between 1610 and 1628 as part of the Barrio de Analca, it was damaged by fire during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 and partially rebuilt in 1710 following the Spanish reconquest of Santa Fe. The interior is steeped in history, with a late 18th-century altar screen, a carved wooden statue of St. Michael brought from Mexico in 1709 and portions of the original foundations visible beneath the existing floor.
Best known for mesas, sheer-walled canyons, and the Ancestral Pueblo dwellings found among them, Bandelier also includes over 23,000 acres of designated Wilderness. It was named for Adolph Bandelier, a 19th-century anthropologist. Proclaimed on February 11, 1916. Acreage: 32,737, all federal. Wilderness area: 23,267 Amenities: Child Friendly.
The crowning achievement of Archbishop Lamy's church construction in New Mexico, the Saint Francis Cathedral was built between 1869 and 1886 and designed in the French Romanesque Revival style. Although its design contrasts the surrounding adobe buildings, the cathedral remains one of Santa Fe's most celebrated landmarks. Built on the site of a church that was destroyed during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 and replacing a later adobe church called La Parroquia, the Saint Francis Cathedral was created with stone from local quarries. Portions of La Parroquia remain in the form of the Chapel of Our Lady of the Rosary, which houses a wooden statue of the Virgin known as Our Lady of Peace. The statue was first brought to Santa Fe in 1625 and was returned to the city by the armies of Don Diego de Vargas during the re-conquest of 1692. In 2005, Pope Benedict XVI officially elevated the church to the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi.
This non-circulating, closed-stack research facility is part of the Palace of the Governors and provides an excellent collection of historical material relating to the history of New Mexico, the Southwest and meso-America from pre-European contact to the present.

Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument is a geologic wonder, full of towering cone-shaped tent rock formations formed after volcanic eruptions took place six to seven million years ago. Explore the contoured canyons and arroyos carved over the centuries by wind and water on a national recreational trail containing two segments. The Cave Loop Trail is an easy 1.2 mile hike. The more challenging Canyon Trail takes you 1.5 miles one-way into a narrow canyon then steeply up a 630-foot climb to the top of a mesa, with spectacular views of surrounding mountains. (Check the weather report before setting out to hike here as the canyon can flash flood and lightning can strike the ridges.) This is also a wonderful spot for viewing wildlife.

This glorious Gothic-Revival style chapel was completed in 1878 and modeled after King Louis IX's Sainte Chapelle in Paris. The church was built for the Sisters of the Loretto, who established a school in Santa Fe in 1853. According to legend, St. Joseph the Carpenter had a role in the building of the chapel's Miraculous Staircase, constructed between 1877 and 1881 with two 360-degree turns and no apparent means of support. Today, the church is a private museum and a popular site for wedding ceremonies.

Santa Fe Plaza
100 Old Santa Fe Trail.
Bordered by San Francisco Street and Washington, Palace and Lincoln avenues, Santa Fe, NM 87501
The heart of downtown Santa Fe for nearly 400 years, the Plaza remains the central part of the city, hosting Indian and Spanish markets and other annual events as well as community gatherings, concerts and more.
The U.S. Courthouse had its beginnings as the proposed territorial capitol for New Mexico. In 1848 under the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, Mexico ceded what is now New Mexico, Arizona, California, Texas, and portions of Colorado, Utah and Nevada, to the United States. The New Mexico territorial government was established two years later. In 1851 Congress appropriated ＄20,000 and in 1854 an additional ＄50,000 to construct a "state house" on what is now Federal Plaza.
