We followed the directions to El Farolito Bed & Breakfast Inn on Galisteo Street with no problem at all. When we got there, we had no idea how close we were to the Santa Fe plaza area. That worked considerably in our favor - in future trips to Santa Fe, we will always be staying in this area since parking is such a problem!
We were booked into Casita La Paz. The room was spacious and warm, with a huge, overstuffed bed. A cabinet in the corner contains a television if you're so inclined, and of course the room has its own heat/cool control. There was also a kiva fireplace in the corner, but unfortunately we weren't there during the fireplace season. What you can't see is the spacious dressing room and bath off the main room. We were very pleased with our accommodations at El Farolito.
Outside our door, there was a secluded porch. You can see it in this photo, but a gate closes for privacy. A table and chairs made it the perfect place to sit out and look at how brilliant the stars were. Unlike our home in Dallas, there are light pollution restrictions here and you can see things in the heavens that you've never seen before.
The serving room of the main house was generously stocked for breakfast every morning. Although they call it a continental breakfast, every day there is the smell of fresh pastry baking wafting out of the doors. On waking and coming to breakfast we had four kinds of bread, along with flavored coffees (try the Pinon!), fresh fruit plates and various gourmet cereals.
This is the sitting room of the main house, warm and welcoming with a kiva fireplace. This is a place where you feel right at home when you walk through the front door. The people that we met while staying here were great folks from around the country, and their presence at the B&B made it a neat little community. We'd swap Santa Fe experiences, and wave at each other as we passed coming and going. It was a wonderful experience.
