Take us back to Hacienda Nicholas!

5 on April 29, 2015

We have just returned home to Canada from our trip to New Mexico and one of our favourite places in the world is now Hacienda Nicholas! Carolyn, owner and host, is delightful and very in tune with what we needed to do while staying here. The atmosphere is compelling in its beautiful stillness- breakfasts are incredibly delicious and we managed to work off the calories consumed due to the close proximity to all areas of Santa Fe a few blocks from this astoundingly beautiful B and B. All amenities were looked after along with a sound environmentally friendly philosophy- we enjoyed the feeling of peaceful sanctuary while on holiday! Let your mind go and let your spirit be free while staying here. Absolutely a place we will return to due to the feeling of creative insight and peacefulness.Make sure you visit Canyon Road to be inspired by all of the incredible artists as well as wandering in the Town Plaza area. Such a cool vibe here!

Wonderfil accommodations and great people!

We love staying at Hacienda Nicholas! The inn is very comfortable, very clean, and beautifully decorated. The breakfasts are delicious, and the courtyard garden is a great, quiet place to relax between activities in Santa Fe. Everyone on the staff is helpful and gracious. The afternoon snacks are great, and they even leave homemade cookies out between times. It is an easy walk to downtown Santa Fe, so you can walk to loads of great restaurants, shops, and museums. Our favorite place to stay. We used to live in Santa Fe and have been coming back every year or two for about twenty years now. We actually try to arrange our travel dates so that we can always stay at Hacienda Nicholas, because we find it such a treat.

Hacienda Nicholas and Madeline Inn

I have been staying at the Hacienda Nicholas and Madeline Inn for over 20 years and each time I am sad to leave. I would like to stay a month. Whether alone, as a couple, or with friends the innkeepers made you feel welcome and totally comfortable. The breakfasts are outstanding, the ambience soothing, and the staff inviting. I recommend these two inns to all my friends--they are forever grateful.

My wife and I stayed for one night recently. Very nice location within as easy walk from the plaza and Canyon Road. Wonderful rooms and staff. We have stayed twice previously and will definitely go back.

My stay in the Hacienda Nicholas

5 on July 26, 2013

We would highly recommend a stay in THE COTTAGE. We enjoyed the privacy of the garden, and because it is dog friendly, our Chow-Pei dog had a great time running around free, while I sat in our private patio, enjoying puffing on my pipe with a glass of wine. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the well tended garden and all the extra 'personal touches' that made the experience very pleasant. The parking area was ample and clean, and among the amenities provided were towels and soap, had I wished to clean my car or my dog. We went to the 'social hour' at the HACIENDA NICHOLAS where we chatted with other guests over a bottle of wine and a variety of tasty snacks. The breakfast of blue corn and blueberry waffles was delicious and the friendly staff made our stay a memorable one.

Feeling at home at the Hacienda

Have stayed at the Hacienda each time I come to Santa Fe, and the experience is always comfortable, friendly, and warm. Ask for the Sunflower Suite if available---it's my personal fave. Breakfasts are excellent, and you'll often see the owner in the morning, with her warm and gracious manner. Can't wait for my next visit.

Recent stay at Hacienda Nicholas

3.6 on April 21, 2011

Our recent stay at Hacienda Nicholas was all we could have hoped for when we booked it online. Our Wisteria room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was abundant and delicious, and afternoon snacks were terrific. Best of all was the warm and wonderful ambiance enhanced by a cozy fire in the great room and the sunny garden courtyard where guests gathered, chatted and shared their adventures in Santa Fe. Our hostess, Carolyn, and her assistant, Merrilee, were extremely helpful, and made us feel so much at home. We would love to visit again in the future.

Staff were very helpful and knowledgable.A very pleasant experience! Both Inns allow easy access to Santa Fe, yet also quiet and private

What a great stay!

We arrived. We were enchanted by this lovely B&B. We did not want to leave. We want to go back...now! What a lovely time we had at Hacienda Nicholas. It has great rustic charm, a warm and welcome feel about the place. We enjoyed our casita; everything was just right. We especially enjoyed the homey gathering space where we joined with others each night at 5 p.m. for wine and other treats. We met some great people, and even went out with one couple for pizza. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Our very favorite was Merrilee, who went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The breakfasts were tasty and hearty. Homemade cookies were available 24/7. I have nothing but good to say about this wonderful B & B. Also, you could not ask for a better location, just a couple of blocks from the plaza at the center of town. Perfect!
