Very authentic hacienda with all the comforts you really need. Great breakfast. Nice peaceful gardens to relax and friendly hosts. Already booked a return visit. Real history of Santa Fe's art scene from the 1930's you can feel.

Place for arty intellectual types. Old adobe buildings, lots of charm. Beautiful flower garden. Lots of stairs. Lots of places to sit and read a book. Most everybody was in town for the opera. Great breakfast and great conversation too. Plaza is walking distance.

What a great B&B, beautiful and unique rooms, amazing breakfast, walking distance to downtown, and a terraced garden you feel you can get lost in. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with great spots to see. This is defiantly a must for anyone visiting Santa Fe.
