We really enjoyed this place, it was very clean with a lot of history. The ambiance was excellent and Spence was a great host. There is no Wi-Fi or TV, but after one night stay it makes you glad there wasn't. You didn't need it. What a relaxing evening. My husband and I put technology aside for one evening and... More

We stayed here four nights over Christmas and enjoyed the inn very much. Spence was a wonderful and kind host, and his breakfasts were delicious! The B&B is remote enough to be quiet and peaceful, but close enough to towns and cities to allow easy day trips. A train goes by several times each day, but the noise lasts only... More

My wife, two young sons, and I stayed at Hacienda Vargas in early October 2015 for a friends wedding, which was happening on site. The hacienda was beautiful and peaceful. I spent most of my time relaxing in a lounge chair in the courtyard. The thing about the dry New Mexico climate, was that although it was a warm couple... More

A very interesting and comfortable place to stay. Spence is a colorful character as well as an excellent cook. He also provides good restaurant references. We also enjoyed meeting the other people who were staying there. We would definitely go back.

Interesting property, and the owners and staff are very nice. Breakfasts were wonderful, and the bedroom was great - really like having separate outdoor access. We arranged to grill our own dinner the first night, and everything we needed was provided, and the food was just dandy. The bathroom was pretty good - it had a wonderful clawfoot tub, big... More

A unique hideaway, historic stagecoach stop, nice rooms, ok breakfast, great hospitality. Very comfortable. Western country charm. This was our second stay in four years, and we would certainly go there again. Only drawback was no WiFi.

Ron, Thank you for your review, it is always great to get return guests and we appreciated you recommending us to your friends. I hope the conference you were attending at the Tamaya Hyatt was gratifying; I appreciated your words of wisdom and grace the evening I ran into you in the courtyard.
