We highly recommend "The Madeline" in Santa Fe, NM. It is an elegant Victorian Inn. The quiet and safe location is ideal and just a short walk away from the Santa Fe Plaza or the art galleries on Canyon Road. We made our reservation by calling the Inn and speaking with Michael. He helped us select "The Morning Glory" room, booked our reservation and then immediately sent us a confirmation email that contained detailed information about our stay.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by Kevin with a plateful of his freshly baked "Apricot Chip" cookies. Kevin escorted us to our room and gave us a tour of the property including the award winning Absolute Nirvana Spa. He also assisted us in planning our stay in Santa Fe. Our room was quiet and private enough to sleep with the windows wide open. We enjoyed the stained glass window over our comfortable four post king bed and watching the sunlight dance through the tree leaves outside our bay windows.
A delicious breakfast was served across the street in the adobe garden courtyard of The Hacienda Nicholas Inn. The servings were generous and the food was freshly prepared with organic ingredients. In the afternoon, wine and tea was served and we enjoyed relaxing in the courtyard while sharing conversations with other guest and the staff. I loved the combination of staying at The Madeline and dining at The Nicolas Hacienda as I felt we had two unique experiences. We were able to stay in a grand Victorian home plus enjoy the charm of a traditional adobe Inn during the same visit to Santa Fe.
The Madeline and The Nicolas Hacienda are eco-friendly Inns that have the same owner. If the Madeline is booked we would also recommend staying at The Nicholas. Free parking is on site and added to the convenience of our stay. I recommend visiting the web sites for these properties to see photos, read about the history, and for a sampling of delicious recipes:
Thank you Carolyn, Kevin, Anna, Michael, and staff for an excellent stay in Santa Fe. We look forward to our next visit with you and hope this review will encourage other travelers to enjoy your hospitality.
