What We Love: Organic Lavender Farm Centered Around a Historic Hacienda
Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm is located in the North Valley, of Albuquerque, a lush green environment that borders the mighty Rio Grande River. Los Poblanos is a historic property set on land that was originally inhabited by the Anasazi Indians in the 14th Century. It is from these roots that Los Poblanos gets its name, as these citizens originally from Puebla, Mexico were called “Poblanos”.
Historic Hacienda & New Farm Field Rooms
Today the inn offers 50 guest rooms and suites that incorporate the classic Hacienda New Mexico style elements of hardwood floors, wood burning fireplaces, traditional artwork and antique furnishings. And new renovations have added the Field Rooms, which are located in converted 1930s style Dairy Barns, featuring Los Poblanos’ signature clean minimalist farmhouse style. The Historic Hacienda, La Quinta, and other Los Poblanos buildings were further the expert work of prominent architect John Gaw Meem, and his style of architecture as well as, utilization of local craftsman and artisans is captured on the property. This gorgeous setting of lavender fields, a functioning farm, incredible gardens, and a salt-water pool surround the inn and truly provide a stunning environment for peace and relaxation.
