I arrived at Hacienda Vargas in mid-afternoon to see a note on the front door-"come in and use phone in library to call me since I may be out in the yard." A long hallway with historic southwestern items, and Native American art was before me. The owner arrived and we chatted as we walked to my assigned Pinyon Room,... More

My wife and I stayed at Hacienda Vargas on one of our last nights of a 2 week trip to have a relaxing evening before returning to Albuquerque to fly home. We found it to be a perfect place to unwind from two weeks of travel. The Hacienda is in a rural area that is a peaceful setting. It has... More

We just eloped here on March 11th, 2016. It was the most magical place and I am so happy with my decision. Cynthia and Spence are great and very informative. Cynthia helped me with any questions I had and even asked me questions that I hadn't thought of. The evening of the ceremony I had a makeup artist and hairstylist... More

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.

Interesting property, and the owners and staff are very nice. Breakfasts were wonderful, and the bedroom was great - really like having separate outdoor access.
