The Grand Ballroom
One of John Gaw Meem’s architectural masterpieces, the Grand Ballroom is undeniably one of the most stunning venues in New Mexico. The room’s parquet walnut floors, hand carved ceilings, decorative Spanish tile and monumental fireplace make it a magnificent setting for truly memorable events. Four sets of French doors open to the surrounding gardens, the Grand Portal and the Fireplace Terrace.
Open in 1936 as Albuquerque’s first art gallery open to the public, the Gilpin Gallery is ideal for board meetings, retreats, and cocktail receptions. The room features four large windows for natural light, original cork floors, and a permanent exhibition of black and white photographs taken by Laura Gilpin depicting the ranch in the 1930s.
The Grand Portal
With magnificent views of the Sandia Mountains, the Grand Portal has a twenty-foot deep covered portico surrounding a Portuguese tiled swimming pool. The space features a true fresco painted by Peter Hurd depicting San Isidro, the patron saint of farmers, and a series of small mural panels of pastoral farm scenes. The classical styling, size and grandeur create the perfect setting for al fresco dining and cocktail receptions.
Located just west of the ballroom, this octagonal pavilion features a dramatic outdoor fireplace and lattice between paired posts. With its adjacent lawn and lush gardens this space can be used for small meetings, intimate dining, ceremonies and afternoon teas.
The Barn Commons Meeting Room
Located approximately 100 yards away from the Historic Inn, this multi-purpose meeting and multimedia room can be used for a variety of functions – from business meetings to yoga classes. Spacious and airy, this space can be used for groups of up to 16 people.
