The Bobcat Inn
Table Of Contents
The Bobcat Inn was originally an old hacienda that has been renovated to preserve its original integrity. This pueblo-style adobe includes a beautiful courtyard and koi pond. Located only 7.5 miles southeast of Santa Fe, we can be your authentic lodging choice in New Mexico.
Our Santa Fe bed and breakfast is on 10 acres of forested land with views of the mesa for mile. In the summer, weather permitting, we serve breakfast on our portal. We also serve a high tea in the summer on Saturdays by reservation.
We are a family-owned bed and breakfast that is small and unique to Santa Fe, NM. While being in a rural setting, you are still only 15 minutes to the historic Plaza. This gives you the best of both worlds. A full breakfast is served each morning.
We serve breakfast in our great room in the winter. This room is decorated with Native American and Mexican pottery, warm plastered walls with wonderful artwork, mission-style furniture. We also have a large fireplace where you can keep warm.
All guests have 24-hour access to our breakfast / great room where complimentary homemade chocolate chip cookies, nuts, and tea are available. Coffee is always available in the morning or in your room at all times. We also provide useful visitor information such as maps, guidebooks, restaurant menus, and current event listings. There is a guest computer and free wireless Internet available. We also have a guest refrigerator located in our gift shop which is accessible 24 hours a day. For your enjoyment we have a membership to El Gancho which has an indoor and outdoor swimming pool and tennis courts.
One of the highlights of staying here is our breakfast. All of our guests always comment and ask for recipes for different specialty dishes.
We use fresh local ingredients whenever possible. One of our dishes, the Spinach Portabella Fritatta, was featured on Project Foodie. Our Blueberry and Coconut Macaroon Bread Pudding with warm apricot sauce is to die for. We always serve fresh fruit, granola, Kashii lean cereal, and low-fat vanilla yogurt. For the Southwest lover, we serve cheese enchiladas with a mild green chile sauce that is blended with spinach. Poached eggs and salsa are served with the enchiladas. It is always a surprise to see what the hot entrée is each morning for breakfast. We serve strong Sumatra coffee from our local roaster, Ohori’s. There is also a nice selection of teas.
Room Rates are valid for up to a double occupancy. There is a $20.00 per person per night charge for each additional guest in the room.
One of my favorite hobbies is green gardening. In New Mexico, it is very important to conserve water. There are many drought-tolerant plants that grow in the high desert. Xero scaping is very popular and involves choosing plants that can tolerate the cold in the winter, rocky soil that has to be naturally enriched, and recycled gray water.
We start working on our garden each year in May around Mother’s Day by adding organic corn meal and molasses to the soil. The freeze date is May 15. After that, we are ready to plant. We have a gray water system and so we reuse our water. This means when you take a shower it goes into our garden! Many of the perennials will come back and only have to be cut back once a year. Russian Sage, Yarrow, Jupiter Beard, and Yellow Broom Stick are a few of my favorite perennials. We also love color, and cosmos and petunias provide the Easter egg effect.
