Delmar en la Cienega
Ranked #31 of 37 Santa Fe B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 June 2013

Magnificent property located in beautiful rolling desert hills outside Santa Fe. Just a 20 minute drive from downtown, we heard coyotes each night from our bed. Spacious and artfully decorated home featuring amazing indoor swimming pool. As stunning as the home was, the true star of Delmar is the hostess, Dee. Charming and gracious, Dee offers an amazing breakfast each morning and plenty of valuable advice. She treats guests more like family than visitors. Could not possible recommend visiting Dee more. We plan to return to Santa Fe just to re-visit her!!

Room Tip: Master suite with fireplace and killer bath is wonderful. Rainbow room has great views.

Don't know what we can add to what has been said. Gorgeous! Peaceful! Amazing breakfasts. Hostess Dee is wonderful! Easy drive to Santa Fe. We loved it here. Hope it is still open! Dee mentioned she might sell. We were there last summer, and highly recommend it. Indoor pool was awesome. 5 stars!

Nestled in the rolling hills of La Cienega lies a beautiful B&B called Delmar. We spent five days at the most peaceful and romantic time beyond what we thought possible! We had a private bedroom with a comfortable king size bed that was so peaceful we arrived home missing Delmar already! The days we had breakfast at Delmar were fabulous and the pool was great to relax in at the end of the day! The owner is a gem!

Room Tip: All rooms are beyond expectation!

We stayed one night at this B&B on the way from Albuquerque to Santa Fe. This is the most unique and beautiful B&B we have ever stayed. It has indoor swimming pool that lights up beautifully at night. It's only 20 minutes drive to Santa Fe but it is (seems like) you are in the middle of wilderness where scenery is breathtaking and at night it is very quiet and you can even hear coyotes. Dee is very warm and friendly, she made us feel like we've known her as we've been friends for a long time. Her breakfast was FABULOUS! She uses all natural ingredients and even juice was freshly squeezed! You have got to stay here if you are visiting Santa Fe. You will love it here!

Room Tip: We stayed in Rainbow room but you will like all the rooms they have here.

All I can say is WOW! You MUST stay here if you are planning a trip to Santa Fe!!!!
When we go back we will not stay anywhere else!

We felt like we had always known Dee she was so warm and welcoming.

We had a wedding to attend in Santa Fe this past August so we decided to arrive a couple of days early because we had never been to Santa Fe. I spent a lot of time searching on the internet for B&B's that might be fun to stay at when I came across Delmar en la Cienega. I was drawn to it immediately. Something just compelled me to go there. I just knew that we needed to stay there!

Well, we stayed at two other places while we were in Santa Fe. We would have stayed here at least 2 of the nights but she was hosting a wedding celebration on the first night we were in Santa Fe and was full.

We arrived on the Friday after the wedding celebration crowd left Delmar and Dee came out and met us as we pulled in.

The rest is history!

She is the most gracious hostess and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Her home is spectacular but extremely comfortable. We were fortunate to have her and her lovely home to ourselves the night we stayed. It was special!

I even took a late night swim in the indoor pool which was amazingly relaxing. I highly recommend it!

If you are looking for that "special" experience, this is the place.

Dee, you are the best.

One of the worlds most unique hospitality properties lies just outside the little village of La Cienega, New Mexico. Calling it a B & B doesn't do it justice, although it serves a different gourmet breakfast every morning. The beds and rooms go from very comfortable to luxury unavailable from any 5 star hotel. Yet it's not a hotel, although it features a 28 Foot indoor heated swimming pool.

The proprietress is as unique as everything else about Delmar en La Cienega.
You'll find her refreshing touch in every corner of the 8000 sq. foot 5 Room mansion. She knows the local dining and entertainment scene well.

The structure was built as the private residence for a New Mexico state senator.. It is now a quiet, elegant venue from which to discover the spirit of New Mexico.
