Los Poblanos is the most beautiful place I know in the state.  It’s an oasis right there in the middle of Albuquerque.”

- Rick Scibelli, NM Photographer

Los Poblanos is certainly a jewel in the crown of houses my father designed.  Perhaps the best part of my visit was to see how much you both love and care for the place. It feels very close to the way it must have been when Albert and Ruth moved there in the early thirties – only nicer.”

- Letter to Armin & Penny Rembe from Nancy Meem Wirth, Daughter of John Gaw Meem, Architect of Los Poblanos

I would like to try to impress upon you the joy that I felt in seeing what you are doing in around her (Ruth Hanna’s) last effort in life. She would approve of every step. I approve of every step and deeply appreciate your imaginative toils to this end.”

- Letter to Armin & Penny Rembe from Katrina McCormick Barnes, Daughter of Ruth Hanna McCormick Simms

La Quinta was meant to be a public place. To restore it to its intended social use is a great public good.”

- The late George Clayton Pearl, famed New Mexico architect

I can’t imagine a worthier use of Los Poblanos than to open it to the few and respectful visitors who will take away from their visit a greater understanding of New Mexico.”

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 (Country Life Magazine)

It is entirely possible to have a public retreat without disturbing the natural grace and rural integrity of the surrounding area…the Rembes have the cultural and environmental wisdom to make this a place of beauty…”

- Jane Abrams, Artist and Village Resident

Every detail of the property has been meticulously and carefully managed in a successful effort to make their guests have a genuine sense of the old world. Sitting on the patio for breakfast with a huge cup of coffee and homemade, produce that comes straight from the garden is a delicious way to start the day, can you imagine yellow beet hash and eggs that have been harvested and gathered an hour before you sat down? Welcome to Los Poblanos.”

- Elizabeth Keller, Regular Guest

Our Los Poblanos weekend wedding was the perfect way for us to celebrate our love and start our married life… There is something magic about Los Poblanos – there is more ‘heart’ there than almost any other place I have ever been.”

- Fay Abrams, Regular Guest and Albuquerque Resident

Los Poblanos may be the purest paradigm of agri-tourism in the Southwest… everything farmed here is incorporated into the lodging business.”
