My wife and I spent our 10-year anniversary here, and I can’t say enough good things about it. The place is charming, high-end, historic, spiritual, restorative and cozy. the house goes back at least 500 years to the King of Spain, and you could make an argument that it was the first house in all of New Mexico! While keeping that historic charm, the owner also renovated it to feel new and luxurious, and the outdoor soaker tubs are... otherworldly. In fact, we soaked in those baths for several hours every day. Magical. Finally, I just want to thank the hosts for sensational hospitality. Thank you for everything you did to make our 10 years feel extra special.
