We spent a week at the beautiful Valencia Ranch in May 2021 after having to reschedule 3 times due to New Mexico's COVID restriction. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the gorgeous southwest architecture and decor as well as the location of this property. Being only 20 minutes from Santa Fe was convenient, while being in an area with lots of acreage for hiking and viewing the beautiful mountain scenery was serene. Also, we enjoyed the restaurants and shopping in the small town area of Glorietta near the ranch. Our hosts could not have been more accommodating and kind! We look forward to returning some day!”

We thank the owners for sharing their beautiful, colorful, and uniquely New Mexico home with us; The setting is gorgeous, peaceful, and calm. We felt safe and secure during our visit. The home was fully stocked with all the necessities. The area has a great history and will be particularly interesting to Civil War buffs. Two great features are the wonderful library. This was the first time we've stayed where there were so many books available. A second unique feature was the Mexican antique doors that had been preserved and re-purposed throughout the house. Spectacular. We had a chance to meet the owners who are charming and gave us a complete and useful orientation including a long list of restaurants and stores in the area. We are looking forward to returning. ”
