Decided to drive to Hacienda de Taos on a whim before returning to the US. It was a great experience. The cabins are very cute and rustic, but not uncomfortable. The campfire dinner and breakfast were great and varied, and even had vegetarian options. The horseback rides were also excellent and more interesting than I had imagined. I had imagined more "touristy" rides, but these includes hills and a chance to walk past grazing (and slightly startled!) cows. Celina also allowed me to bring my big, lazy dog, which was very helpful. He loved the chance to play with the resident dogs, sample horse manure, and experience life in the country. Thanks!
