Truly unforgettable three-day stay. This place goes on my top-ten list of favorite inns.
Los Poblanos isn't close to anything location-wise, but that's part of its charm. In fact, this inn may have been the best part of our ABQ/Santa Fe trip.
From the initial narrow drive down the driveway past tall cottonwoods, to a flock of sandhill cranes crossing as the sun broke across the lavender rows to the the white peacock calling from twenty feet above the reception lodge, Los Poblanos was such a joy.
Even when the foliage isn't in bloom (we went in February), the scenery is striking, the grounds are beautiful and the estate is full of a feeling of authenticity that you don't get from many inns.
We stayed in one of the Meem rooms and really enjoyed having a fireplace and a view to the sunrise each day.
The folks working in the lavender fields were volunteer workers who were happy to discuss their tasks. Everyone we talked to gave us a wonderful, welcoming reception.
Breakfasts were astoundingly delicious. We were continually surprised by all the attention to detail from the staff. Everything from the room layout to the visitor tips and notes is just so. Even the gym is more than I expected for a place of this size.
I know this sounds really exuberant, but I'd go back in a heartbeat, and they're not paying me to say that. : )
