Chose Josefina's because of others' glowing reviews... all of which were warranted. Susan, who took my reservation, and Kathleen, the owner, gave personal attention, recommendations of where and what to see and eat, I felt like I'd known them forever. I plan to take my hubby to Josefina's next spring! Being not quite peak season, nonetheless, Sunday in the town square offered music and arts and crafts vendors as well.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This quaint adobe house known simply as “Josefina’s” has long been a symbol of warmth and welcome on the Historic Old Mesilla Plaza. Josefina’s is aptly named for the dynamic and outgoing woman who lived here for nearly 35 years and established the Luminaria Tradition of Mesilla. Dating back to the early 1900’s this home has served as a place to gather, socialize, and celebrate. This tradition lives on as “Josefina’s” opens its gates to the community and visitors of Mesilla.Once the site of holiday open houses and afternoon get-togethers, we now invite all to relax, spend time with friends and family, and enjoy the plaza in an intimate and comfortable setting. Whether you are gathering for a tea party on our patio, a luncheon in our café, celebrating a special anniversary in our Historic Inn, or shopping for that “must have” at Old Gate Antique’s, you are sure to find the warmth of Southern New Mexico charm. ... more less
