Ansel Adams, the famous photographer, was a close friend of Bynner. A frequent guest in this villa, along with his wife, Virginia, Ansel took many photos of Bynner and his rambling adobe estate.

For those looking for unique and beautiful places to stay in Santa Fe, the Ansel Adams Suite fits the bill. This two-room suite features a sitting room with wet bar, love seat sofa-bed, TV and comfy reading chairs, saltillo tile floor, and a large adjacent en-suite private bath with two sink vanities and claw-foot tub/shower combination. The bathroom is one step up from the bedroom level.

The suite includes a comfortable bedroom featuring a queen bed, viga beam ceiling, TV, chairs, and saltillo tile floor. Our wood burning fireplaces are available Oct. 15 – April 15.  The room, overlooking the Old Santa Fe Trail, is located in the oldest part of the estate dating back to the early 1800s and is accessible from a private portal entrance adjacent to a small tree-shaded courtyard with cafe table for dining. Enjoy a wonderful Santa Fe lodging experience near downtown.  Pets are NOT allowed in the Adams Suite.
