Discover The Wonders of New Mexico
Meticulously designed to frame the extraordinary desert landscape, The Grand Hacienda provides luxury, space and privacy, and peace and belonging. Come join us.
The Grand Hacienda of Abiquiú Lake is an adults-only experience, a feast for the senses in a remote and quiet location. Modern luxuries, sophisticated services, green and eco-friendly––think of a small, boutique luxury inn––blended with authentic architecture and inspired design––think adobe and southwestern style. The combination, along with its award-winning hosts, make The Hacienda the best place to stay in gorgeous northern New Mexico. With only three suites, the Hacienda is an serene escape, a retreat nestled on a mesa top overlooking Abiquiú Lake, Ghost Ranch, the Red Cliffs, Pedernal, and plains of red, yellow, purple and green. Dramatically perched on its mesa this brand new, elegant, high-end bed and breakfast offers a luxury experience in a location surrounded by quiet stillness. Located in the middle of Georgia O'Keeffe country, you will feel what she did when saying, "It's something that's in the air – it's different. The sky is different, the wind is different." This breathtaking land and the beauty of The Hacienda are sure to soothe, calm and inspire exploration.
Staying here is all about the experience.
Guests arrive as strangers and leave as friends. And, it's the most luxurious lodging option in the area. Whether you want private, intimate time by yourselves or perhaps engage with others at a happy hour or competitive game of bocce ball––the choice is yours! Join in great conversations around the fireplace, meet incredible like-minded people, or roast s’mores on your private portal while enjoying an evening of intimate privacy. At The Grand Hacienda, you will find yourself in a magically beautiful and inspiring location where you can do as much, or as little, as you want! Discover the impressive scenery through hiking, kayaking, rafting, and exploring. The local area is full of history, culture, geology and adventures. But, you'll want to carve out time to enjoy your destination––the stillness and beauty of The Grand Hacienda.
All three guest suites are totally different, and yet, equally magical, with a complete list of amenities.
Each suite opens from a private entrance in the plaza into a spectacular living space with a king-sized bed, en-suite spa bathroom and private outdoor portal (patio), complete with soul-stirring views, lounge chairs and a chiminea fire pot. Luxurious linens, towels and bathroom products await. WiFi and Cable TV are at your fingertips if you need to connect. Self regulating heat and air conditioning for your perfect temperature, and heated floors in the colder months.
Common amenities include a shared full kitchen; the Great Room with a kiva fireplace, sitting and dining areas, books, games and puzzles; laundry facilities; a bocce ball court; a hot tub overlooking the lake; the Lakeside Portal and many outdoor seating areas: and access to our private lakefront. No detail has gone unnoticed, and no amenity overlooked.
Your hosts, Carolyn and Tom, love Abiquiú and love sharing this amazing place with guests. Allow us to show you the magic of Abiquiú, Santa Fe, Taos and northern New Mexico––it's right outside your door.
