Meet the Owners
Three generations of the Rembe Family that own and operate Los Poblanos. In 1976, Penny and Armin Rembe purchased one half of the property from Albert and Barbara Simms, where they raised their four children and maintained the property as gentlemen farmers. In 1999, the second half of the property, which included La Quinta Cultural Center, came up for sale and was under threat of being developed. Together with their four children, they decided to reunite the properties and undertake a preservation plan to maintain the architecture, gardens, and open farmland in perpetuity. In their retirement, Penny and Armin ran the inn for five years. In 2004, their son Matthew Rembe became Executive Director, and has developed all areas of the business, from expanding the lavender spa product business to the addition of guest rooms, fine dining, and cultural programming.
