Inn of the Five Graces
Travel Blogs from Santa Fe
Saturday . . . Finally made it to beautiful Santa Fe in the late afternoon. Walked around downtown admiring the adobe buildings and then had a delicious Mexican dinnner at Casa de Chimayo: chicken mole, fajitas, blue corn tortillas and chile relleno.
Sunday. . . . In the morning headed to the small but very nice Georgia O'Keeffe museum, and the Museum of Indian Arts and Cullture. Drove through town admiring the beautiful homes with adobe ...
... doors until the rain kicked in, we then scrambled home and arrived home drenched.
We then broke our only rule for the weekend by immediately getting in the car (Rule #1) and seeking out to buy firewood. Rules are meant to be broken, we had fires burning the rest of the weekend.
... road up ahead, secrets whisper, years come and go,
Dreams drift away.
I am the journey, you are the journey, and we may never pass this way again.
See the USA in your Chevrolet, America's the greatest land of all.
They say we may never pass this way again, so, let's make a date today to see
The USA. Yes!
But, when I leave, I'll be a long time gone, Darlin'.
... amber waves of grain. By Vaughn we were at an elevation of 5965 feet. Fourty miles or so south of Santa Fe we started seeing more mountains in the distance and the flat prairies gave way to more little hills and mesas and trees or large bushes rather than grass and sagebrush. We believe there may even be a dusting of snow atop the mountains nearby. Definitely cooler and signs of fall in the tree colours.
... and were braced for some negative things about it. However, when we got here we found a lovely campground (although the spaces were a little tight) with trees and the Durango-Silverton Railroad running right through the campground.
We are planning to go see Mesa Verde tomorrow, where the ancestors of practically all of the tribes of the Southwestern U.S., built homes in the walls of the canyons many years ago, and the ruins still stand.

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.
