We admit it, our closest friends and family thought I was crazy when I decided to leave the financial industry and Wall Street to open a bed and breakfast in the middle of a remote desert wilderness. They reminded me of the problems of finding staff, managing all the challenges that come with remote living. We already manage vacation home rentals in the area and cherish our guests, who quickly become friends, and the community of travelers. So we felt confident in this majestic landscape and the experience it offers. We were up for the adventure and The Grand Hacienda was born.
We started designing and building The Grand Hacienda in 2017. Finally, in 2020 with an occupancy permit, a bed and breakfast license, a business license AND a liquor license in hand, we are ready to share a new and unforgettable way to experience northern New Mexico for the most discerning traveler.
Tom and I love New Mexico. We respect the history, the culture, the land. We are also adventurers. We love to hike, ski, kayak, scuba dive, travel and explore. We love mountains and water. We feel blessed to live here full-time since 2017.
Feel free to reach out to us any time. We love to share the history and knowledge of this area.
Carolyn and Tom Calfee
