Every year my husband and i take a week to travel west to a single location that is very different in beauty from what we experience in the east (we live in North Carolina) as well
as a place that will allow us time and circumstance to read, talk and just 'be' together.
This year we came to Taos and to the Hacienda del Sol. We could not have been more pleased!
The inn itself is lovely and old. Our room was 'La Escondida,' a very comfortable one which looks out onto the quiet grassy courtyard ringed in willows and cottonwoods and planted with thick patches of sapphire blue bachelor buttons. Purplish mountains rise behind it.
The inn was our 'home away from home' for a week. Each morning, after a delicious breakfast, we embarked on a day-excursion (llama trekking, narrow gage railroad trip into the Colorado Mountains, day trip into Santa Fe) always to return most gladly to the comfort and peace of the Hacienda.
But it is the staff, the innkeepers, Luellen and Gerd, Erika and Mark, who made this a
truly exceptional place. They were always warm, accessible, helpful, and simply a delight. We've been to many lovely small hotels and bed & breakfasts around the country, but
the kindness and care we were given at the Hacienda del Sol exceeds them all.More
