... of massively tall grain silos. These silos are always exactly where the railway station is, as that is where the farmers load their grain on to the goods trains. As these silos are so tall you can see them standing above the town - they tell you exactly where to find the station. Anyway, we were a few blocks north of Route 66 looking for the station, when we saw a goods train rolling through the trees: It was a couple of blocks more to the north. Wey hey - a train! Let's go chase it! ...
... the bus was very helpful and many seem to know each other. When anyone got off the majority thanked the driver, I have never seen that before. The campground is near a bike trail and if you follow the GPS it gets you to it, but look closely or you might miss the entrance like we did. The park has full hookups, some pull -throughs, a pool, laundry and clean bath house. Check in was easy and they give you information about what to see and do ...

However we did our best and took some brill pics before it got too busy and then headed on our way to Adrian, the R66 midpoint.
Again not much to do here just a few pics as I am more excited about going to the Ghost Town of Glenrio, which also lies on the Texas-New Mexico ...

Although it was starting to rain after lunch we walked to get pictures of the oldest house in the US, the De Vargas House built in 1646 and the San Miguel Mission built between 1610 and 1626 on the Sante ...
... with the Davises, and savoured crepes and French onion soup. Our visit with them was short, as Luke was feeling ill, but we planned to meet up again for a longer visit on our return trip. After saying our goodbyes, we had just enough time to see the New Mexico Museum of Art where we admired the courtyard and the girls watched a puppet show. On our way back to the car, we passed by Burro Alley and the original trading post. We were off by early afternoon, destination Texas!

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn of the Five Graces Santa Fe
Five Graces was lovely
The Inn if The Five Graces is the most charming B & B I have ever been to. The service was impeccable and my room was both comfortable and the decor unique. I will return again and again !
What a fabulous place to stay! The staff of the Inn went out of their way to be sure everyone was comfortable and were very helpful in suggesting places to see, etc. The rooms are gorgeous and kept very well. I would definately recommend the Inn to anyone that is looking for beautiful, relaxing place to stay when visiting Santa Fe.
I just loved everything!!!
The Inn of the Five Graces is the most wonderful place!!!I am planning another trip in the fall. There are no words to describe the peace and tranquility-yet you are so close to wonderful dining and awesome daily excursions to Taos,etc. I cannot wait until fall!!!!!Martha
Heaven For A Weekend
I was up for some serious R&R and a friend recommended Inn of the Five Graces. Boy was she right! It was only for a weekend but it was heaven. Staff was amazing with their help and made me feel like I was the most important person staying there. I plan on staying there any time I'm in town and would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to pamper themselve...even for just a weekend.
A magical place we will return to again and again....
From the moment we arrived Niall and his staff were charming and friendly. He went out of his way to make sure we had everything we could possible want or need. I toured most of the rooms and their unique style and southwestern theme make this hidden treasure worth checking out. It's cozy warmth will make this our #1 destination for many years to come. Hats off and see you soon!
Heaven in Santa Fe
Easily one of the most delightful places I have ever stayed. The combination of 16th century Santa Fe with the Moorish archtectural decor is absolutely unique and enchanting, and being within walking distance of the Santa Fe Plaza - it is unbeatable.
What truly makes the Inn stand out is combining this ambience and charm with the way the owners run their hotel. The staff is warm and friendly from top to bottom, and can't do enough for you. You arrive to chips and salsa, margueritas, and a fully stocked fridge. When you return from dinner and a movie, the bed is turned down, and the evening lighting envelopes you.
Truly - my get-aways at the Inn are so restorative that I just want to get back as soon as I can.
Complaints or shortcomings? Absolutely none.
A very special hotel!
Outstanding! The Inn of the Five Graces is one of the most unique and special places I have ever stayed. Ideally located in Santa Fe, you can walk to everythign. Also, the exotic styling of each room and the wonderful staff make you feel as if you are staying in your own bedouin palace. I especially loved the fresh baked cookies and the staff's willingness to do anything to make our stay perfect. I recommend it to everyone I know!
Beautiful rooms/Great location/Wonderful hosts
Previously Seret & Son's 1001 Nights. Beautifully decorated rooms - each different. Some with kitchen. These are first class accomodations. And the service and hosts are the standard by which others should be judged. That cannot be said very often. Also, it is close to the Plaza and Canyon Road. And the best bar, The Dragon Room (at the Pink Adobe) is around the corner! Highly recommend!
Fabulouse. Perfect romantic place
We've stayed here several times & it's an extraordinary hotel. The furnishings from Seret & Sons are fabulous. And there's a small kitchen, too. This is the BEST splurge in Santa Fe. The beds are beyond delish! A perfect honeymoon spot!Can you tell we loved it?
Very nice place
We stayed there in 2001, it is under different ownership now and called "1000 Greaces". Very comfortable rooms. We had a great big comfortable bed. The decor is awsome, rustic middle eastern; just great. If you like the furniture, you can find it down the street at "Seret and sons". Good location, many art galleries and the park in walking distance. I would certainly stay there again.
