Fodor's Expert Review Sarabande B & B

5637 Rio Grande Blvd. NW, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87107, USA

While the name of this soothing, Modernist compound is inherited from the prior owners, the current setup now blends a respect for its Southwestern roots with a refreshing commitment to a—rare for these parts—high-end mid-century modern aesthetic. Reopened in 2015, the connected units in this five-room North Valley hideaway each have a separate entrance; a short stroll across the lovely courtyard brings you to breakfast in the main house. A multi-lane lap pool cools in summer, and shaded walkways meander about to private patio spaces. Some rooms have fireplaces, most have brick or Saltillo-tiled floors; skylights, vigas, and a harmonious balance of well-chosen wall prints and textiles complete the scene.
