Our mission is to cultivate a conservation ethic by preserving the agricultural fields, formal gardens, art and architecture of Los Poblanos through sustainable practices. We perpetuate the agricultural history by maintaining an active organic farm which provides produce to a local CSA and cultivating lavender and honey bees. The original residence now serves as an award winning small inn; and the cultural center operates as it was originally intended – hosting meetings, parties, educational and cultural events.
We have collaborated with some of the leading preservationists and planners in the country on a recently completed renovation project to provide a high level of guest amenities and environmental standards, transitioning the property into the 21st century. The additions are modeled after other successful preservation projects of historically significant properties to compliment and preserve the essential agriculture, architecture, and gardens that make the Los Poblanos experience unique.
We promote ecological consciousness in providing hospitality to our guests. We use all natural biodegradable cleaning products, feature organic ingredients in all of our menus, and prioritize water conservation programs throughout the property. Bicycles are available to guests to encourage a low emission vacation and local experience.
“Los Poblanos is also an experimental farm, and one that is an inspiration to all the farmers in this rich fertile valley which has been farmed for 300 years….”
- Laura Gilpin, 1937
