Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm Review
Designed in the 1930s by the renowned Pueblo Revival architect John Gaw Meem for a local political power couple, Los Poblanos stands today as a quintessential element of Albuquerque's North Valley and its pastoral soul. The rooms provide a perfect New Mexico moment: Moroccan-patterned tiles, hand-worked tin sconces, and kiva fireplaces, all set in the soft curves of adobe walls. Enjoy the panoramic view of the Sandia Mountains—and the exquisite peacocks that wander the grounds—from the dining room patio, where your sumptuous breakfast may be served. It's organic and locally grown (much of it on-site). You might then choose to venture no farther than the salt-water lap pool or the Farm Shop and pen replete with adorable baby goats, or perhaps pedal the meandering acequia trails as far as one of the Inn's bicycles might carry you.
Down a long private driveway framed by soaring cottonwood trees, and some 25 acres of organic produce and lavender, this rustic but smartly furnished inn feels worlds away from downtown Albuquerque (which is actually just 4 miles south). The property's Territorial-style adobe buildings were designed in the early 1900s by famed New Mexico architect John Gaw Meem, and guest rooms capture the regional vernacular with wrought-iron accents, kiva fireplaces, beam ceilings, and colorful Mexican-tile bathrooms. You can stroll over to the property's shabby-chic farm store and browse the garden books, cookware, and gourmet gifts— they even sell fresh-laid eggs culled daily from the chicken coop next door. Hearty breakfasts feature site-harvested ingredients, and the inn presents occasional seven-course "Field to Fork" dinners throughout the year.
