Located in the North Valley of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Los Poblanos Inn is nestled among 25 acres of lavender fields, enormous cottonwood trees, lily ponds and lush formal gardens.
Backed by the Rio Grande River, Los Poblanos Inn is one of the most magnificent historic properties in the Southwest. Designed in 1932 by the region’s foremost architect, John Gaw Meem, the “Father of Santa Fe Style”, Los Poblanos is a serene property that offers something for everyone.
Locals and off the beaten path travelers tuck in to the Los Poblanos property:
-To explore the grounds that comprises of a cultural center, a working organic farm and lavender fields.
-To rest their heads in one of 20 historic rooms or suites that exhibit classic New Mexican style with original artwork and antique Southwest furnishings.
-To nourish themselves with seasonal varieties from the Field to Fork menu of their acclaimed restaurant. The majority of the menu is rooted from the Los Poblanos farm along with their food shed that features Rio Grande Valley Cuisine.
I spent a morning at the property to explore many of the unique amenities.
I began with breakfast. I tucked into the shabby chic, modern New Mexican breakfast nook where guests are offered house made granola and beverages of organic milk, fresh squeezed juice, Villa Myriam Colombian coffee and Fair Trade loose leaf tea with Los Poblanos honey.
Each day the menu offers a different option of one sweet and one savory breakfast item.
The field to fork menu comprises of fresh, local ingredients ranging from eggs, chicken, bacon, pork belly, harvested honey, stone fruits, figs, jujubes, cardoons and a variety of greens and fresh vegetables.
After breakfast I enjoyed a guided tour of the gardens, La Quinta cultural center, lily ponds, lavender fields, the organic farm with billy goats and chicken coops, and tasted honey at the retail store which features organic products from the farm and fields.
A highly recommended explorative, historic experience. Enjoy a tranquil setting with luxurious suites, generous hospitality, and a field to fork dining experience.
