A 5-acre family urban farm in ABQ’s South Valley is the setting for this cozy 2-story bed-and-breakfast inn built in 1922. Filling the inn are wonderful antiques of every stripe imaginable: European furniture, Native American pottery, Western antiques, German beer steins, English blue china, stained glass, and landscape paintings. Several antiques are gifts to the inn from past guests. “I like to think all of our guests are threads in our tapestry,” says Darlene Capshaw, co-owner with her husband, Phil.

Indulge in one of the 2 ground-floor rooms (the English Rose Room or Heritage Room), each with a private bath, an outdoor entrance, and a patio seating area. The room rate includes freshly cooked breakfast; lunch and dinner are extra. Meals can be taken in the communal dining room or served in your room. Rates start at $149.

Pro tip:

During February, the inn offers a “Vintage Valentine” package that includes an overnight stay, a private 5-course candlelight dinner, a welcome tray, a bottle of bubbly, and a dozen red roses for $295.
