Pet Friendly Lodging in Santa Fe, NM

Sometimes it’s hard to take that vacation if you aren’t sure that your pets are going to be able to handle the separation.  The good news is that there is pet-friendly lodging no matter where you go and if you’re planning a trip to Santa Fe then look no further than Inn on the Paseo.

Our Inn is warm and welcoming and not only are we family-friendly, but we welcome well-behaved pets – after all, they are part of your family too!  Both cats and dogs have taken a much-needed vacation here.  We have a flat rate of $25 per night per pet and do not alter this according to size or weight.  All you have to do is make sure that we know which pet you are bringing and then we will match you to one of our pet-friendly rooms so that the accommodation is suitable.

For active dogs a visit to this part of the world is going to be a memorable one.  There are some great walks in and around Santa Fe – just remember to take some water with you when the temperatures are a little higher and to clean up after your pet.

Santa Fe is home to a few pet-friendly attractions so why not consider adding one or two of these to your itinerary?

Hyde Memorial State Park is open around the clock and dogs are welcome if they are kept on a leash.  It costs nothing to take your dog into the park so it is a great place to visit if you are on a tight budget.   Alternatively you can head over to the State Capitol Grounds.  Again, dogs have to be kept on a leash but this is a great place to explore.

For dogs that love to be off-leash there is the Santa Fe Animal Shelter Dog Park.  This is a fenced area of the park where there are also separate areas for smaller dogs.  Perfect for meeting other dog walkers.  There is also an off-leash dog area at the Frank Ortiz Park.  This is a great place for those who enjoy walking as there are plenty of walking trails here for you to enjoy.

With so many alternatives to taking your pet with you, you might be wondering why you wouldn’t just find a kennel or your pet.  For some people the separation from their pets means that they spend their entire vacation just worrying about them and the pets can also suffer from separation anxiety.  You can cancel all of this out just by bringing your pet with you.

If Santa Fe is on your list for consideration for your next vacation just call us to find out availability on our pet-friendly lodging for you and your dog/cat.  Booking in advance is important as we have limited rooms available specifically for pets.  Contact us for more information and check out our specials today!

A Beautiful New Deck Coming Soon!

As many know, our family took ownership of the Inn in May of 2013. At that time we mapped out a multi-year renovation plan to breathe new life into our already top rated bed & breakfast.

One very exciting renovation currently underway is a brand new beautiful deck for our guests to enjoy! Our new composite deck will serve up to 24 guests and will include LED pathway lighting.

Progress is being made quickly and we anticipate the deck being finished by the first of the year, if not sooner. We hope to see you soon and when we do, you’ll be able to enjoy breakfast, a glass of wine or peace and quiet on our new deck…

Late Winter Turns to Early Spring

Santa Fe winters have been described by New York Times writer Frederick Turner as ” a world of brilliant, almost blinding contrasts: the virginal snow, the depthless azure of the sky, the baked brown of adobe (and faux adobe) buildings, the red of hanging ristras of chilies, and, over all, the high god of the region, the sun, yellow as a daisy’s heart.” More succinctly, locals call a Santa Fe winter one of “our best kept secrets.”

Santa Fe has that special combination of great winter outdoor activities and warm, inviting things to do indoors. It is not only a great place for winter sports – with Ski Santa Fe close by – but it is also a wonderfully cozy place to spend the weekend, a week or the whole winter! Winter in Santa Fe means adobe walls and a snowy backdrop and a mountain/desert air scented with fragrant piñon smoke.

Additionally, early Spring is one of the best times of the year to visit Santa Fe. Daytime temperatures are usually in the 50s or 60s (and even 70s). The sun is usually out and it’s glorious. At night, temperatures drop into the 30s.

Early spring is considered the off-season for tourists, so there are better deals and less waiting for dining in prime spots. At Inn on the Paseo, we are currently offering some of the best bed & breakfast rates in Santa Fe.

As spring arrives, Friday night gallery openings pick up, the celebrated Santa Fe Farmers Market moves outdoors, and concerts, plays and dance performances resume around Santa Fe. Visit Santa Fe attractions in early spring if you’re not concerned about Santa Fe weather.

Here at the Inn on the Paseo we have come up with a number of interesting things to do – special things that make winter and early Spring in Santa Fe truly one of the best kept secrets of our region.

Ski Santa Fe Vacation Package

Winter Ski Package in Santa Fe, NMNew Mexico’s landscape makes visitors think of desert colors and ancient, flat landscapes. Yet Santa Fe is actually nestled into the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. These ‘foothills’ soon turn into mountains and at 12,075 you will experience Ski Santa Fe. A hidden gem, this ski area is only 16 miles from Santa Fe and is one of the most undervalued ski areas in the southwest.

Ski Santa Fe is a rare gem that has managed to thrive, yet remains under the radar. Skiers experience wide open spaces and plenty of time skiing, not waiting in lift lines. The vistas atop Ski Santa Fe are unsurpassed and include steep bump runs, powder filled chutes, gladed tree-skiing, and plenty of groomers.  Ski Santa Fe is family oriented, but those seeking a challenge can find it on this mountain’s trails or some of their backwoods.

With the 2013/2014 Inn on the Paseo Ski Package, guests can experience western skiing at Ski Santa Fe with its 73 trails and 7 chairlifts.  There, you’ll find a base area elevation of 10,350 feet and a chairlift ready to take visitors as high as 12,075 feet. Perfect for beginner or intermediate skiers, the mountain also features runs that are well-suited for advanced skiers.

For non-skiers, there is plenty to do in Santa Fe as the region is well known for its art galleries, restaurants, day spas, and museums. For those who are looking for outdoor activities, Outspire Santa Fe provides private, customized hiking tours and snowshoe outings for singles, couples and small groups.
