I have wanted to visit the Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm ever since I first moved to Albuquerque and when I started my blog it was one of the first places I contacted and I was not disappointed. The grounds are beautiful and the staff are incredibly friendly. Luckily for my friends and I this particular day in February held a mild late afternoon and evening which made the farm all the more pleasant. We had a wonderful tour and then dinner at their La Merienda restaurant. This place has so many nooks and crannies to explore and small details to discover that we were all enchanted.

Now, any of the lawns at Los Poblanos would be a fantastic place to have a picnic lunch when it is in full bloom or during the fall when the leaves change colors, but I think the Rose Greely Lawn might be my favorite to relax outside and soak up the quiet in the middle of Albuquerque. During the colder seasons, however, I would want to curl up in the Library with a warm cup of tea and smell the distinctly New Mexican smell of pinon wood burning in the fireplace.

One of the things I love about New Mexico is that there is art everywhere and this place did not let us down. As we meandered around the grounds it became a treasure hunt to find the small, finely crafted details hidden all around. When you are in New Mexico you should definitely check it out for yourself.

P.S. Look for follow-up posts on Los Poblanos’ eco practices and their fantastic restaurant, La Merienda, so stay tuned.
