Ojo Santa Fe

Puppy Patch

Snuggling furry friends isn’t just delightful, it’s also good for you. Studies have shown that playing with animals can lower your blood pressure, melt away stress and anxiety, and even help with chronic pain management. 

We proudly partner with Española Humane, a local shelter, to foster rescue pups at our Puppy Patch, where we delight in watching them bring smiles to our guests. Go ahead, get attached: All the puppies brought to Ojo Santa Fe are adoptable.

The Puppy Patch is open for visits from our overnight guests from 9:30 to 11am most days of the week. Those not staying with us may submit an online adoption application with Española Humane to schedule an appointment to meet the puppies. Espanola Humane adoption fees apply.

Silkie Chickens

Silkie chickens are not your ordinary hens. In fact, these soft, fluffy, friendly and playful birds are hardly shy, and they lived a charmed life here at Ojo Santa Fe. They enjoy mingling with our guests and won’t think twice about striding right up to you to ask for more treats.

For a little bit of stress-melting animal therapy, swing by Ojo Santa Fe’s daily Chicken Chat, located in the outdoor coop next door to the Puppy Patch, to learn a bit more about Silkies and feed them fresh greens, veggies and other treats. During our guide-led Chicken Chat, you’re welcome to pick them up and hold them, and you might be surprised when they relax and start purring like a cat while they sit on your lap.

Ojo Santa Fe

Target Sports

Archery has risen in popularity in recent years thanks to a few blockbuster movies, but its history runs deep—possibly as far back as 10,000 B.C.E. It takes a great deal of resolve and concentration to hit targets with a bow and arrow, and you might be surprised to discover that it’s a full-body effort that requires great focus. Stop by our Target Arts area for a fun lesson in this ancient practice.

Hatchet Throwing
Like archery, throwing a hatchet might sound a lot simpler than it actually is—and is a more serious workout than you might expect, too. Challenge yourself to learn this fun, focus- and coordination-improving skill you never knew you needed. Target sports are led by experienced staff who will show you how to safely use the equipment and provide pointers to improve your performance.

Close-toe shoes are required for participation. $25/person intensive course. 

Ojo Santa Fe

Disc Golf

Ojo Santa Fe’s seasonal disc golf course offers a high desert stroll amidst arroyos, native desert plants and mountain scenery. Stop by the Lobby to borrow a set of equipment and head out to the course for some self-guided fun.

Ojo Santa Fe

Live Music & Traditional Dance

Northern New Mexico has long been a haven rich with artists and artisans. On select Friday afternoons, you can revel in native hoop dance by Lightning Boy Foundation, a troupe that empowers our valued local youth through culture and expression. Friday and Saturday evenings, and for Sunday Brunch, join us for outdoor dining and drinks to the tune of cherished Santa Fe musicians like Nacha Mendez.
