Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm Review
Designed by acclaimed architect John Gaw Meem, this rambling, historic inn lies outside of Albuquerque's sprawl, on 25 acres of organic farm fields, lavender plantings, and gardens in Los Ranchos on the town's north side, near the Rio Grande and just across the street from Anderson Valley Vineyards—with all the greenery and the quiet pace of life here, you'd never know you're in the desert, or in the middle of one of the Southwest's largest cities. You reach the inn via a spectacular tree-lined lane. Every accommodation has a private entrance and contains folk paintings, painted viga ceilings, and high-quality linens. Rooms also contain bath products made on-site, including lavender soap and oils; all have kiva fireplaces, too. The property also includes the 15,000-square-foot La Quinta Cultural Center, a conference space available for meetings that contains a dramatic fresco by Peter Hurd. There's also a library with beautiful artwork.
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.
