Visit a unique Bed and Breakfast near Santa Fe and Albuquerque and discover secrets of the past! Hacienda Vargas is the only New Mexico Inn along the historic El Camino Real.
Nestled in the Rio Grande Valley in the village of Algodones, our New Mexico bed and breakfast continues to greet travelers and pilgrims in need of lodging the same as it has since the 17th Century. Algodones was originally founded as a military garrison to provide protection for the merchant wagon trains traveling between Santa Fe and Chihuahua, Mexico and as late as the 19th Century it was the site of a military supply depot and occupied by General Kearney and the Army of the West in 1846.
The sights, sounds, and scents of New Mexico are to be found at Hacienda Vargas Bed and Breakfast. For example, in the past the site was used both as a stagecoach stop and a train station. Today, the sound of the passing train establishes a unique and special link to the 1800s. Our central New Mexico inn is truly a unique experience among bed and breakfast and lodging close to both Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Located on the northern pre-1937 fork of Route 66, between the Santa Ana and San Pueblos, this inn has many tales of both the past and the present to share.
Because of its convenient location between Albuquerque and Santa Fe and its close proximity to Bernalillo, Rio Rancho and Placitas, Hacienda Vargas Bed and Breakfast has evolved into a romantic getaway for both New Mexico residents and out-of-state visitors. It is a testimony to the romantic ambiance to be found here that many pledge their devotion to each other by exchanging marital vows in the Hacienda Vargas Wedding Chapel and spend their wedding night in one of the suites with a private Jacuzzi and authentic Kiva fireplace. The adobe chapel, unchanged since its construction, has witnessed weddings on many occasions.
Cynthia and Richard, the owners/innkeepers of this historical inn, will delight you with a bountiful breakfast while sharing the secrets of New Mexico with you! Enjoy homemade pancakes, hash browns, bacon, fresh baked pastries, fresh fruit, juice and coffee. The menu changes but the ingredients are always fresh. Menus can also be adjusted to accommodate any special dietary needs.
Cynthia and Richard have made a commitment to maintain the historical aura and ambiance of the Inn while providing warm hospitality to all their guests. Welcome to Hacienda Vargas!
