I am sitting in my room on one of my last days at Rancho Manzana, staring at the apple orchard and cotton woods along the creek and out to the foothills of the Sangre de Christo Mountains. I am a Creative and Brand consultant who has been lucky to be involved in the building of restaurants, hotels and events around the world. Immediately upon arrival, I could read that this place had an incredible story and an elevated attention to detail. These are things that aren't terribly easy to find while traveling anymore- in a world where automatic mentalities have lost the hospitality vibe of days past. What is offered here where I still sit is a quiet space to relax, with all of the connective ability should you work remote as I do. Rancho Manzana offers an elegant space to allow you to truly take in the beauty of this historic area against the natural landscape. The rooms are dressed beautifully, linens are incredible, the main building is a gorgeous expression of historic traditional architecture and is over 300 years old! My flat was populated with a beautifully curated selection of books that gave me the opportunity to fall deeper into the history of where I lay. My host was lovely when we interacted. She has had this property for 30 years and understands world class accommodation like few I have met in a quiet countryside. Thank you for a truly wonderful stay Jody and team at Rancho Manzana! I will recommend your space to all of my industry friends looking for an escape with elegance and ease. I am so grateful I found this place, and will return as soon as I am able. My very best wishes until then, -Lauren De Vine
Had a great time
Out of this world breakfasts. beautiful relaxing country setting, historic adobe. Cute dogs and friendly cats.
II stayed for 4 nights while attending a conference at a larger hotel 15 miles away- the casita was primitive, but very clean, peaceful and stayed cool in the heat- the grounds of the B/B are very interesting- the large farm house was built 300 years ago, and has been remodelled- its beautiful. Hot tub and firepit were very nice in the evening, I had some terrific breakfasts- the host has lived in the area for decades and knows the locals. I did some excellent mountain bike riding East of Truchas- bring your bike. Only 54 miles to Taos for a day trip.
