Historic B&B Near Town Center
Built in 1897, the stately Victorian home known as the Mauger Estate has been an Albuquerque fixture for more than a century. The home was the longtime residence of W. E. Mauger, a textiles baron who made a fortune selling raw wool he bought from local Native Americans. Today, Mauger’s Queen Anne–style house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It retains many of the original features, including etched glass and elaborate woodwork. Located within two miles of Route 66 and less than a mile from both downtown and historic Old Town, the estate makes an ideal launching pad for exploring Albuquerque.
The Mauger Estate B & B has garnered positive press from Travel + Leisure and Frommer's in recent years, thanks in part to its understated Victorian decor and array of free perks. Throughout your stay, enjoy hospitable touches such as a complimentary breakfast buffet, fresh flowers in your room daily, and free early-evening snacks. The innkeepers regularly post recipes on their website so you can re-create the kitchen’s sumptuous offerings in your own home.
Albuquerque: Multicultural City with Long, Storied Past
Not only is Albuquerque New Mexico's largest city, it's also one of the state's most diverse. Over the past 300 years, Spanish, Mexican, Asian, Native American, and English influences have shaped the local culture—reflected in architecture ranging in style from adobe and Gothic Revival homes to glass-and-steel towers downtown. The bulk of Albuquerque's cultural offerings center on Old Town, where you'll find a half-dozen museums, including the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, which showcases artifacts dating back to the first settlers along the Rio Grande. The building is modeled after the Pueblo Bonito ruins of Chaco Canyon. To see a real pueblo, head to Acoma just west of town. Set atop a mesa, this dusty village—one of the oldest in the country—consists of centuries-old, pale adobes housing native artisans known for their black-and-white pottery.
