The bucolic farm surroundings, classic architecture and abundant character make Los Poblanos the perfect place to unwind and soak up New Mexico’s unique charms.
Set among 25 acres of lavender fields, enormous cottonwood trees and lush formal gardens, Los Poblanos is an idyllic organic farm and inn situated on the edge of Albuquerque. The original adobe ranch, designed in the 1930s by acclaimed Santa Fe architect John Gaw Meem, is also still very much a working organic farm, nowadays mostly focusing on lavender production.
The inn’s fifty rooms are split between “Meem” rooms in the historic main ranch building, “Farm” rooms in renovated barns, and the more recently-developed white-stucco “Field” rooms at the edge of the lavender meadows. All are supremely comfortable and tastefully decorated in the classic New Mexico style. The historic bedrooms are complete with kiva fireplaces, carved beam ceilings, hardwood floors and New Mexican antiques.

What is not home-grown is carefully sourced from various nearby farms along the Rio Grande Valley. A full breakfast is included and La Merienda restaurant serves dinner from Wednesday to Sunday.
