Discriminating canines are invited to accompany their humans to La Vista for a special doggie rate of $25 per night ( max $100 per Visit). We will do our best to ensure that you and your human have plenty to wag about!
As a good boy/girl, please make sure:
Your humans do not abandon you inside La Vista while they go off and have fun. We can recommend doggie-camp options or companion visits to prevent this all-too-common tragedy.
Your human has been trained to take you to a proper outdoor location to complete your regular business in the dignified manner to which you are accustomed. And, that your human does the cleanup job for which they were so well designed.
Your human does not cause you to howl, bark, whimper, whine, and potentially face an embarrassing charge.
Your human remains leashed to you when anywhere outside the gate of La Vista since you’re not allowed off leash and would never have gone unless coerced.
Your human pays for any damage s/he causes you to inflict, as usually happens at home.
La Vista welcomes you for an enjoyable bit of panting and wagging, and invites you to sniff for a special treat upon check-in. La Arf at La Vista!
We work hard ... But have no fear we play hard too!
Whenever time allows, we can be found cooking up a fabulous concoction in the kitchen (red wine in hand) & we often share with our guests too;) or we may be out & about walking the rio grande with our 4 (yes! Four), four legged family: tucker, rio, bella and bo ... On many occasions, we visit the plethora of dog friendly restaurant patio's and can often be found on our bikes headed to a new SW Adventure in The Land Of Enchantment.
We absolutely love, love, love living in the south west & hope to share all of it's wonder & beauty with you!

Historic Albuquerque, New Mexico is a combination of the very old and the highly contemporary, the frontier town and the cosmopolitan city. It is a city with a truly rich history!!
The petroglyphs, vistas, sunsets, food, art, historic attractions and lifestyle captured our hearts. The Albuquerque experience is wrapped up in four distinct & truly wonderful seasons ... all of which are stunning.
There are a variety of things to do in Albuquerque. Whether we were visiting one of the 14 beautiful golf courses & spas, taking a hot-air balloon flight over the scenic Rio Grande Valley, hiking among dormant volcanoes, horseback riding along the river, strolling through Old Town & Nob Hill to visit the many eclectic shops, being drawn into the amazing Art Galleries or visiting one of the local wineries to taste the grape! We found that Albuquerque offers a real breath of fresh air with a fantastic climate & warm wonderful people.
Albuquerque, the largest city in New Mexico, is packed with activities, cultural attractions and distinctive sightseeing opportunities & plenty of people watching too ;).
There was so much to do ... we stayed!
It is Our Primary Goal to make sure you Feel at Home & Have an Amazing Vacation Experience ... not just a trip!!
We would love to share our knowledge of this Amazing City & We have Tons of Tips for Santa Fe too ... Come Enjoy The Land Of Enchantment & Our Beautiful Retreat!!
I Know we have said it ... But The Views are OUTSTANDING!
