Acoma Room

October 19th, 2013 by Cynthia Spence

The Acoma Room, located through a private entrance from the inner courtyard just outside our historic chapel, is a quiet and cozy space where you can relax, think about days gone by, and unwind. Dedicated to the people of the Acoma Pueblo, this peaceful retreat features two-foot-thick authentic adobe walls and original brick floors provide comfort and serenity to those who sleep here.

The massive kiva fireplace is non-functional today, but stocked with candles, while the traditional niche is home to local pottery. The Acoma’s private bathroom has a miniature, antique soaking tub as well as a walk-in shower. The Acoma offers a double bed and a sitting area with table and chairs, as well as wood beam ceilings, soothing southwest colors and an antique Singer sewing machine complete with working treadles.

Piñon Room

October 19th, 2013 by Cynthia Spence

The Piñon Room, located in the main Hacienda, sits at the former 1920′s location of the Algodones Post Office. Celebrating the native Piñon tree of New Mexico, we burn the aromatic piñon in our fireplaces and serve the precious piñon nut in our pancakes. The Piñon’s massive, wood-burning kiva fireplace (re-stocked daily during burn season) enhances coziness and comfort. In addition to its entrance from inside the Hacienda, the Piñon has an outdoor entrance from the North yard.

The Piñon has a queen-size bed and a rocker for enjoying the firelight or reading. The private bathroom has a large old-fashioned claw-foot soaking tub and shower with antique fixtures, a pedestal porcelain sink with antique fixtures and a water closet toilet.

The Kiva Junior Suite, located in the main Hacienda building is a spacious getaway that is perfect for relaxing all day long or using as a home base after exploring New Mexico.

Santa Fe Suite

October 19th, 2013 by Cynthia Spence

The Santa Fe Suite, accessed through an archway in the inner courtyard, provides seclusion, romance and a sense of timelessness. The archway leads into a small private walled-in, bricked courtyard. The Santa Fe is named after the capitol of New Mexico, translated as the “Town of the Holy Faith.”

Just as the Pueblo, Spanish and Anglo cultures of Santa Fe interweave the old with the new to create a rich and mystifying “Land of Enchantment,” the Santa Fe Suite seamlessly meshes the old with the new. The bathroom floor, composed of 100+ year old bricks, combines with the modern double Jacuzzi tub to fuse the past with the present. The gas  kiva fireplace along with the “coved” ceiling enhances the experience of serenity. The Santa Fe has a queen bed, a sitting room separated by a half, stair-step wall and a spacious bathroom with double Jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower and lounging settee.

Albuquerque & Surrounding Area

The largest city in New Mexico, Albuquerque still retains an old-world charm. Located in the center of the state, the city provides a gateway for travelers, especially those arriving into the international airport.

Known as the Heart of New Mexico, Albuquerque offers a taste of everything. Outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers can take advantage of two miles of trails, departing from the Rio Grande Nature Center and traveling along the river. A state-of-the-art aquarium adjoins the Botanical Garden along the river’s edge in the bosque, where the cottonwoods and red willows provide shade and shelter for wildlife in the center of town. The Sandia and Manzano mountains frame the city’s east and southern boundaries.

Sip a drink al fresco at the Old Town Plaza. Take the world’s longest, single-span, aerial tramway up to Sandia Peak for an 11,000-square-mile panorama. Travel down Old Route 66 with a stop at historic Kimo Theatre. View more than 1,000 hot air balloons at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta each fall.

The Church of San Felipe de Neri overlooks the central plaza of Old Town Albuquerque, where visitors rest before exploring the 130 shops, galleries and restaurants on the narrow back streets. Explore 4.6 billion years of history at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. Then see the contemporary and traditional history and art exhibitions at the nearby Albuquerque Museum and visit Explora!, the science center and children’s museum. Don’t miss the 15,000 petroglyphs at Petroglyph National Monument. Another must-see is the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, owned and operated by the 19 pueblo tribes of New Mexico.

Just 60 miles west of Albuquerque is the Pueblo of Acoma. Located on a 365-foot mesa, the “Sky City” is the oldest continuously inhabited city in the United States. Take the Turquoise Trail Scenic Byway and travel through the mountains from Cedar Crest north to Santa Fe through the mining towns of Golden, Madrid, and Cerrillos. Corrales, an historic town on the Rio Grande, has attracted artists and writers who want to live in the country with access to city amenities. Nearby historic and scenic attractions include San Ysidro Church, the Riverside Nature Preserve and the Sandia Pueblo.

Santa Fe

Santa Fe was founded in 1610 and is the oldest capital city in the U.S. Like most cities of Spanish origin, Santa Fe is built around a central Plaza, the heart of the city since it as established. The Plaza is surrounded by ancient flat-roofed adobe buildings, many housing numerous art galleries and shops. For an understanding of New Mexico’s history and cultures, visit the Palace of the Governors and the Wheelwright Museum of American Indian Arts. Other museums include the Museum of Fine Arts, the International Museum of Folk Art, and the Georgia O’Keefe Museum.

Santa Fe has beautiful and historic churches such as the adobe Santuario de Guadalupe, the magnificent St. Francis Cathedral, the Loretto Chapel with its miraculous spiral staircase, and the San Miguel Chapel, the oldest church in the U.S.

Santa Fe sits next to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, with ample hiking horseback riding and recreation. Sixteen miles from the Plaza is the Santa Fe Ski Area.

This lively town has performing and visual art events throughout the year, including the acclaimed Santa Fe Opera, the Desert Chorale, Indian Market, and Spanish Market. Artisans and craftspeople share their wealth of knowledge through numerous workshops and art classes year round. With more than 200 restaurants and a well-deserved reputation for outstanding New Mexican cuisine, there’s no danger of going hungry!
