Behind Adobe Walls
You will find peace and tranquility behind our adobe walls at The Hacienda Nicholas Bed and Breakfast Inn, as well as on the famous home and garden tour, Behind Adobe Walls. This annual tour, put on by the Santa Fe Garden Club, features four incredibly beautiful Santa Fe homes and their gardens.
I remember going on this tour several years ago and being amazed by what I saw. One home in particular was one I had passed a hundred times while driving, and never thought it was at all remarkable. Going behind the high adobe walls surrounding the house was another matter - inside were lush gardens, a spectacularly beautiful adobe home, and an amazing collection of fine art.
These are the surprises and delights that await anyone taking the tour. The tour, which began in 1941 (with a break for the war) is the oldest and one of the most prestigious of its kind in the country. Because it is so very popular, you will want to make your reservations as soon as possible.
