This pleasant oasis is made up of log-style cabins, a campground, and a café with a great front porch overlooking a gorgeous valley. The old-time wood-lined café serves homemade pies (apple–green-chile–piñon or tart cherry in season) breakfast, lunch, and dinner (the latter only Friday and Saturday nights, with a special-of-the-day menu that might feature apricot habanero ribs or vegetarian pasta with local goat cheese). This would be a find anywhere, but even more so out here on its culinary lonesome between Grants and Zuni on the beautiful Ancient Way Arts Trail. The cabins come in three sizes and provide adequate shelter with private baths, coffeemakers, and refrigerators, and camping (with full hookups and showers) is available for tents and RVs.
