The Madeline Inn and its brother across the way -- the Hacienda Nicholas -- both owned and operated by Carolyn Lee and her amazing staff -- are perfect in every way! They are located at the end of a small, quiet street off Palace Avenue -- just a short walk from the Plaza. Carolyn and everyone who works with her are ever-present offering delicious home-cooked food, advice and wonderful conversation.
I was traveling alone, looking for a week of respite and could not have found a better place to stay in Santa Fe than the Madeline Inn. I had booked only 3 nights there but wound up being able to stay in different rooms there for the entire week. They were all charming, exquisitely decorated and very clean and fresh.
The hot-cooked breakfast with both indoor and outdoor setting -- along with the evening wine hour -- offered an opportunity to meet other travelers, some of whom will be friends for life!
Having traveled all over the world and stayed in many B&B's, I have to say the Madeline is the best B&B in the world!
