Located on 2 1/2 acres of land called Suitable Digs, the 1948 Spartan travel trailer is nestled in a secluded garden setting, with its own private deck and yard. Upon entering this classic beauty, you'll feel like you're stepping back in time. The meticulously renovated interior is enclosed in gleaming birch panelling with mahogany details, and features black and white floors and vintage pieces throughout. A glimpse of the past with the convenience of today, the Spartan offers you a truly unique and memorable Santa Fe experience. My other lodgings are also listed on this site: The Sun Room, the Earth Room, the Bunkhouse and the Green Room, which can be rented together in any combination for family gatherings, etc.. seasonal: available May through October only accommodates 1–2 people one...Located on 2 1/2 acres of land called Suitable Digs, the 1948 Spartan travel trailer is nestled in a secluded garden setting, with its own private deck and yard.

We have a large solar array on the property that supplies 100% of our energy, and a roof water collection system for watering the gardens. We bring new vitality to the New Mexican desert environment by growing organic fruits and vegetables, making compost, and practicing integrated landscaping. There are greenhouses, fruit and nut trees and an outdoor harvest table under the grape arbor, along with a new natural rock-lined swimming pool just large enough to cool off under the hot New Mexico sky and right next to the Spartan! Sorry, no pets permitted. Check-in is 3-7.More

Lisa was beyond helpful during our 6 night stay. She was knowledgeable, kind, and accommodating. The Spartan could not have been better - all appliances worked great, breezy and cool during the hot July days, private and surprisingly spacious. I'd stay there again and again.

Thank you, Kimmy! So glad to have met you both and happy it worked out for you.

In our opinion, the term “suitable” doesn't do justice to Lisa's creation. This isn't just a place to stay while visiting nearby Santa Fe, this can be the focal point of a fine trip all in itself. It’s an as invitation to commune with nature....More

We stayed 2 nights in the *meticulously* renovated Spartan trailer. Super cute & cozy! We loved the attention to period detail: not only the trailer itself but most objects in it are from the 40s. Highly recommended for architecture/design mavens. This place totally earned our...More
