    Real Rustic Adobe Lodging in New Mexico

    Planning a trip in late Spring -- does anybody know of any really interesting adobe hotel or B&B type places that are either very strange/funky/cool OR genuinely rustic and authentic (wood heat and all that)?

    Just trying to avoid the sort of faux Southwestern type stuff...

    I really like Chama in northern NM. I remember some cool little cabins along a stream that were a great place to stay. Can't remember the name, but they weren't hard to find--Chama is pretty small.

    Frank,
    See ojocalientehotsprings.com--great place to stay and interesting surroundings
    to photograph. A wide variety of accommodations and a decent restaurant.
    About an hour north of Santa Fe. One of my favorite spots in N.M.

    you could try the Bear Mountain Lodge near Silver City: http://www.bearmountainlodge.com/

    It's owned by the Nature Conservancy. I've never been there but it looks really cool. And it's authentic.

    Did you try going to N.M.'s web site and looking around. Maybe you'll run across something..

    Of course if we retire there I might turn it into a Red state ;-P thanks for the help

    Kind of looking for something very Georgia O'Keefe-ish, adobe and all... Edward Weston in the 1930s, etc.

    Magdalena, there used to be a truly funky cinder block motel there. Gotta be the funkiest I have ever been in. Don't know if it is still there

    There are already a few pockets of red in the sea of blue.

    For your trip, Frank, I'd suggest first deciding on whether you want to "headquarter" someplace, and do day trips from there, or move from area to area, taking your bags with you. That will help focus your search.

    There are quite a few good Web sites linked from the NM site: http://www.newmexico.gov/visiting.php

    For maximum funk, you could always camp at Chaco or Bisti. After a couple of days without a shower, everyone becomes funky.
