In early August 2013, my wife and I were returning from a week in southern Colorado and driving back to our home near Dallas, Texas. We were looking for nice quiet place to spend the night and had planned to stop over in Chama, NM, but due to the crowded Chama Days celebration, we opted to keep on driving farther south. We stopped to look at the scenic Lake Abiquiu and checked the Tripadvisor app on the cell phone for nearby lodging. The Tripadvisor website recommended the the Abiquiu Inn, so we called Inn and spoke to both Tracy and Juan in order to make a reservation and get directions. Upon arriving at the Inn, we noted the scenic setting and cool breeze blowing through the trees like an oasis in the desert. We were warmly greeted Tracy and Juan at the front desk and arranged for a nice room for one night. We went to our room (#5) and loved the decor. It had a great king bed and a gas fireplace and the quiet location on the back side of the Inn was great. We immediately went up to the front desk and asked if the same room was available for a second night, but were advised it was already booked for the next night. My wife asked Juan and Tracy if there was any way we could get the same room again and they graciously rearranged their reservation list to accommodate us for the second night. We ate in the Abiquiu Inn Restaurant for several meals (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) for the next couple of days and found the food to be very good, but the service to be exceptional. All of the wait staff was attentive and friendly, but we particularly loved Yolanda who's had a vivacious personality. We had several occasions to see Juan and Tracy during our visit and they always greeted us warmly and inquired about our stay. While we were in the Abiquiu area relaxing we toured the area and our favorite attraction was the Christ in the Desert Monastery located in the middle of nowhere. Overall we loved the Abiquiu Inn and plan to return to spend a couple of relaxing nights on our next trip to the area. Thanks again to Juan, Tracy and Yolanda for making our stay at the Abiquiu Inn memorable.
