We have been coming to Rancho Jacona for 10 years. My son was 1 when we stayed the first time and we have since celebrated 4 of his birthdays there. Our favorite is Butterfly House. My parents, myself and my 2 children have made many wonderful memories during our time at Rancho Jacona. On one trip we decided to take a day and go to Albuquerque to the museum and amusement park. On our way we went through Madrid. The town was decorated for what we thought was a Chili Festival so we stopped to "shop". Much to our surprise it was a movie set for Wild Hogs! We will be white water rafting for the 3rd time this year and my 70 yr old mother is going to join us!! Our favorite restaurants in the Pojaque Valley is the Sopapilla Factory, a little down the highway is Gabriel's and Harry's Radhouse is an absolute must for anyone to stop at, breakfast is absolutley delicious!! I really love the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes. I would highly recommend Rancho Jacona and its' surrounding area for a fun relaxing trip.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Rancho Jacona, just 15 miles northwest of Santa Fe on the road to Los Alamos, is a collection of 11 casitas on a 17th-century estancia, or homestead. We are nestled between the Sangre de Cristo and Jemez mountain ranges and are beautifully set on 35 cottonwood-filled acres. Rancho Jacona provides a peaceful break from the city and hectic pace to which many people have grown accustomed. It tends to be quiet and slow here in all the best ways. Mornings begin with the sound of roosters crowing in the distance as rose and sunflower colored sunshine warms our wide open skies.Evenings are filled with the sound of breezes creating a rustle through the cottonwood leaves, as well as a symphony of crickets in the summer and fall. We offer 11 fully furnished, adorable casitas. Each has a full kitchen, as well as washer and dryer. Studios, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom and 4 bedroom available. Beautiful outdoor swimming pool late spring through early fall. Dog friendly. Family friendly ... more less
