Homemade chocolate chip cookies upon arrival, we felt like we were home! Darlene was a wonderful hostess, whatever we needed, she filled our requests. Their home really is a Nature Retreat providing unbelievably amazing, mountain, sunrise, sunset and stargazing views. You can't stop looking at the views, really!! The kids enjoyed their adventures on their beautiful property, Darlene even found some shovels for the kids to play with. Their home has the perfect floor plan for family gatherings indoors or out.
My sister is from Phoenix and I am from Dallas, we were hoping to meet in the middle. We found Placitas, NM to be a hidden jewel near Albuquerque and we are so excited. The location was perfect, for our families to visit Albuquerque, a great zoo, and aquarium, and skiing in Sandia (great service at the Sandia Ski Resort too). We had a great dinner at Blades Bistro, a charming restaurant nearby. Although we didn't make it to Santa Fe, it would have been an easy trip as the train depot is very close. We thank you Darlene and Dave for your wonderful hospitality. We hope to make this a tradition!!
