Nora Dixon Place
THE NORA DIXON PLACE, built in 1960, represents New Mexico's unique Territorial era arcecture.
The New Mexico Territorial era house is adobe brick with sawn pine trim painted we, and pedimented, divided-light windows. Adapted for use of available materials, the style brought eastern traditions to the frontier.
Set on an acre and a half in the bosque (in Spanish, woods by the river), cottonwoods, Russian olives, fruit trees, native plants, livestock and vegetable farms provide rural peacefulness just 35 minutes from the Albuquerque airport. Visit Santa Fe, New Mexico by a short 50 minute drive North on New Mexico Interstate 25.
Check-in is after 6:00 pm or by prior arrangement.
Check-out is by 12 noon or by arrangement.
Breakfast is served in the dining room, the courtyard, or in your room, as you prefer.
A full breakfast is served on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and a continental breakfast on weekdays.
Fresh fruit, baguettes, sausages, special cheeses, sweet breads, granola, jams,
French toast, fritatas, and yogurt are but a few of the offerings. Plus, there is
always fresh ground coffee, brewed teas, and milk.
Cyndie, Norris, Koti, Jamie and Cleo welcome you to our home at any time. Koti and Jamie are our beloved, small muts, and Cleo is our inherited kitty that has become civil. Koti and Jamie expect a great deal of attention and petting. So be prepared!!
We want you to be comfortable, relaxed and re-newed after you stay with us. We opened the Nora Dixon Place in 1993 after extensive renovation. We are looking forward to you staying with us and becoming another friend of ours, as have so many that have come before.
