I hope that I can truly convey how delightful and pleasurable my stay was at The Madeleine Inn this past July. It was my first visit to Santa Fe and friends made my reservation, staying at the inn themselves. I loved everything about the Madeleine: its location, at the end of a quiet cul de sac only four blocks from the central plaza, could not be better. The historic, Victorian home sets a charming and inviting atmosphere while the rooms are spacious, warm and distinct. The amenities were terrific, including a filling breakfast, cookies throughout the day and large, comfortable beds. I was treated like a much-valued friend.
Of course, all of this was possible only because of the warmth and generous hospitality of the owner, Caroline, and her staff. Lastly, I must also add that I stayed in the Hyacinth Room, which was decorated by two prints by a Southwestern artist, Gustave Baumann, I did not know. I fell in love with his work. So, I have much to thank Caroline and her staff for, and I look forward to more visits to Santa Fe and The Madeleine Inn in the near future.
