Highs + Lows

  • Feels like a cosy, clean home.

  • Super Southwestern feeling, perfect way to experience New Mexico.

  • Did I mention the garden and fresh eggs?

  • If you're looking to get pampered, try a hotel. This is like living on your own.

  • Nothing fancy about this spot, but I wouldn't actually count that as a negative.
