The Mystic Reincarnated


Built in 1948, The Silver Saddle Motel was an original motor lodge on original Route 66. With its western style, the motel welcomed visitors for 75 years, offering them a vintage version of Santa Fe.
In honoring the history and presence of The Silver Saddle, The Mystic has keep the footprint of the original rooms and expanded the lobby to now include a café, bar and two lounges. The High Desert Hideaway, our extensive backyard, was created out of an unused section of the property, and now offers a unique event space to celebrate weddings and all other special occasions. The Mystic has repurposed various items from The Silver Saddle in this, its next life, to also honor its roots and legacy, never forgetting where our little gem originated.


The Mystic is a unique retreat for the traveler in search of new experiences in an old world.  We welcome you to enjoy the warm desert sun and brilliant starry nights of Santa Fe, a place like no other, offering an escape from the outside.

Our Lives

The Mystic was concepted by hospitality visionaries Amanda Tucker and Rick Goldberg, a husband-and-wife team who absolutely love Santa Fe.  They complement each other in their desire to create a welcoming, vibrant and thoughtful haven for the discriminating traveler.
At The Mystic, they have taken a historic, landmark property and transformed it into a stylish, vibrant destination that’s close to everything Santa Fe is known for, yet far away from the expected. As constant travelers themselves, Rick and Amanda are driven and committed to creating and maintaining not only your most memorable hospitality experience, but superior customer service for all guests coming to beautiful and eclectic Santa Fe. In the City Different, they are the different.
