We stayed two nights in Room 1, supposedly less desirable because it's closer to the highway than some other rooms, but it's far enough back. It turned out to be a 2-room suite beautifully decorated in Southwest style with a kiva fireplace. With AAA discount, including tax, it was $100/night. We had five meals at the restaurant. The menu is small, but the food is excellent. Don't miss the "corn cakes," AKA "tamale cakes," accompaniment to various dishes. It was the best polenta I've had -- smooth and creamy, fried crisp on the outside.

We loved our recent one night stay, and only wish it could have been longer. The red mesa casita was spacious and we loved the kiva fireplace. Dinner at the restaurant was excellent and super friendly. Would love to come back again. We did some great hiking at the Ghost Ranch and highly recommend the Chimney Rock trail there.

Room Tip: Red mesa casita was perfect for us, loved that it had front and back porches.

We stayed for the second time at the Abiquiu Inn--one room for our two teenagers, and one for my husband and myself. The rooms were adjacent in a building with a courtyard, and both were beautiful and completely comfortable. The Inn has a restaurant that is amazing--the best chili rellenos I can recall, and both the red and green chili are meat-free and so tasty. We will definitely return. Abiquiu is gorgeous--you can go to nearby Ghost Ranch and hike to Chimey Rock for some of the best views on the planet.

Abiquiu Inn and Restaurant are truly an oasis in this part of northern New Mexico. You'll be so glad you made the trip. The rooms were some of the best decorated and comfortable of any we've stayed in in the whole state. The staff is very nice and competent. The restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Very good local take on traditional New Mexican food and they serve the local ale from the Christ in the Desert Monastery, which we really like. Scenic and amazing area for hiking and photography. Abiquiu Inn is a good place to make your "base camp" for a few days of exploration.

Room Tip: Casitas are really a nice choice for the price!

My wife and I spent 2 weeks in New Mexico and just happened to stumble across the Abiquiu Inn and we are glad we did. On a day trip from Santa Fe we wanted to travel the (incredibly) scenic 16 mile road to visit the Monastery of Christ in the Desert which took us through the small town of Abiquiu. We stopped at the Abiquiu Inn because of a sign along the road announcing a gift shop and the Georgia O'Keefe Museum and figured this was where we could get more information about the area.

The Inn receptionist was busy so we explored the gift shop. When we had the chance to speak with the receptionist we got information that indicated there was enough to see in the area (a good deal of which is not found in travel brochures) and, lacking hotel reservations for Friday and Saturday, thought this lovely setting would make a nice base of operations. We inquired about a room and were given the keys to look at 2 rooms (17 and 22) that were ready for occupancy.

We checked out room 17 and knew we wanted to stay here. Room 22 was also very nice but 17 just knocked our socks off. Although it was only Tuesday we made reservations for Friday and Saturday. We continued to the monastery then returned to Santa Fe, about 45 minutes away. Taos is also 45 minutes away.

Friday came and we couldn't get to the inn fast enough. We settled in quickly and headed to the magnificent scenery awaiting us. Upon our early evening return to the inn we went to the onsite restaurant which, while not a fancy place, served very well prepared meals at very affordable prices. It was certainly good enough to return for dinner Saturday.

Room 17 has a large living room (with fireplace) that flows into a dining/kitchen area, a bedroom, a bathroom and a screened-in porch with a marvelous view of the mountains to the northeast.

The kitchen was equipped with everything one would need to prepare and serve meals. There is a two burner hotplate (no stove or oven), a sink and mini-refrigerator. Although we had a kitchen we used it only for a quick breakfast so we could get back to the great outdoors.

The kingsized bed was extremely comfortable allowing us to recover from our days hiking in the area.

The bathroom was spacious and more than acceptable though the sink had a bit of a drainage problem that maintenance took care of while we were day tripping. If we had not had the drainage problem the rating would certainly have been 5.

The fireplace was set up and ready to go. Strike a match and within minutes the warm, crackling fire provided a wonderful ambiance.

The screened-in porch had a coffee table, 2 single rockers and a tandem rocker. Its view of the distant mountains coupled with its serene setting made it a perfect location for a glass (or two) of wine.

Mother Nature's majestic beauty surrounds the inn. Great hiking trails can be found very short distances away at the Ghost Ranch Living Museum, Echo Amphitheater, Abiquiu Lake Recreation area and the largely unknown Plaza Blanca. Hikes in any of these areas take one through visually stunning scenery of mountains in a rainbow of colors. The area is idyllic.

There's more to be done in this area than could be done in our 2 days there. We will be back to Abiquiu and most assuredly will stay at the Abiquiu Inn.

My wife and I try to get out and about as often as possible our weekends in New Mexico but a day trip does not allow time for both enjoying the area and getting some rest/relaxation so we opt to spend the night a few times a year. Our niece and family have a vacation planned for the Abiquiu area and since we live only 2 hours away we thought we would do a bit of exploring and check out the possibilities for the kids (and adults) in the area. We had driven through on our way to Colorado before and thought the area looked interesting so it was a chance to satisfy our curiosity about the Abiquiu area and grab some maps and brocures to send back to the niece. The Inn looked conveniently located so we reserved a Plaza Blanca King Suite and it turned out to be an excellent choice to complement the wonderful sightseeing around the lake, Ghost Ranch, and the Chama River we had across the two days in the area. The suite was affordable, spacious, clean, and very comfortable...the bed was wonderful. Can't wait to get back to the Abiquiu area and will definitely stay at the Inn...might try the Pedernal Casitas there if available.
