Staying here is all about the experience.
The Grand Hacienda Estate of Abiquiú Lake is not your typical B&B – it 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 a serene escape, a retreat nestled on a mesa top overlooking Abiquiu Lake, Ghost Ranch, the Red Cliffs, Pedernal, and plains of red, yellow, purple and green. Dramatically perched on a mesa top overlooking Abiquiú Lake, 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.
Our guests arrive as strangers and leave as friends. This is an extraordinary bed and breakfast experience, the most luxurious lodging option in the area. Whether you want private, intimate time by yourselves or maybe you want to engage with others at a Happy Hour or join in a 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 and enjoy 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! There is wonderful hiking, kayaking, rafting, and exploring. The local area is full of history, culture, geology and adventures. But you will want to carve out time to enjoy your destination - the stillness and beauty of The Grand Hacienda.
Your suite opens from a private entrance into your spectacular living space. A king-sized bed, ensuite bathroom and private outdoor portal (patio) with views and a chiminea fire pot. Luxurious linens, towels and bathroom products await you. All three suites are totally different, and yet, all are magical. You also will have access to our wonderful common areas, including 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 private lakefront. No detail has gone unnoticed. No amenity overlooked.
Outdoors, enjoy the gated and walled inner plaza, try your hand at a game of Jenga or Bocce Ball, enjoy the lakeside portal, soak in the outdoor hot tub, roast S’mores in the outdoor fire pit, use the grill, or hike the property.
Enjoy free parking, complimentary fire wood, laundry supplies and kitchen supplies.
Start each morning with a three-course gourmet breakfast and specialty coffees, and end each day with an evening treat and spectacular sunset. Both are included with your stay. Because we have no light pollution, this is the perfect location to use our telescope and check out stars, planets and the Milky Way.
Our location is like no other. Remote and away from the crowds, the drive to our property is about 4 miles on a dirt road, winding through beautiful country as you make your way towards the lake. Pedernal stands guard on one side, Abiquiu Lake and Ghost Ranch on the other side. The 360' views of spectacular vistas, red cliffs and the lake are so much better than we can capture in a picture. You really do have to see The Grand Hacienda to believe it. Because we also own two lakefront lots on the water’s edge, you are welcome to drive or hike to the water to float, swim, kayak or fish at the private lakefront beach area.
