We had a terrific two-night getaway recently at the Rancho Manzana B&B. It's tucked away on a country road right near Rancho Chimayo (which we walked to both nights for dinner). Chimayo has good food and margaritas, but not much of a wine list if that's what you're interested it. If the weather's nice, eating dinner on the upper terrace is just delightful.
Rancho Manzana really grew on me. A very small "cottage" room, barely enough room to put your clothes, but the setting was serenity itself, right down to the lily pond and large yard, where we enjoyed some wine and munchies before dinner. Owner Jody is an L.A. transplant with a great sense of style and, I might add, an excellent cook. Breakfasts in her kitchen were fabulous. I appreciated lovely and authentic decor, and especially the narrow full-length mirror on the back of the bathroom door, and other thoughtful touches (but no shampoo in the shower). A nice change of pace from all the faux-Southwestern stuff in many of the lodgings.
We drove out to Bandelier National Monument - about a half hour away - and did a great hike on the waterfall trail that goes all the way to the Rio Grande. Not too strenuous, but bring water and snacks on a hot day, it takes about 3 1/2 hours. I love the wide-open nature of this part of the country, you just can never feel crowded.
