During these times, we hope you and your loved ones stay healthy. Santa Fe is beginning to reopen after the COVID-19 closure. This means that restaurants, galleries, shops, and outdoor activities are all available. We at El Farolito and the Four Kachinas Bed and Breakfast Inns are ready to host your visit. As your health and safety are of paramount importance, we are implementing the Select Registry “Select Safe” protocols to enhance your protection from the virus. This program is based on recommendations by the CDC and industry organizations and designed to aid inns in communicating to travelers the various enhanced cleaning, sanitation, and operational procedures that we are undertaking to protect our guests and staff in the era of COVID-19.

Our two properties are especially suited for social distancing as we have private outside entrances to the rooms and numerous patios (many private) where you can space yourself to relax or dine. While our breakfast offerings remain the same, where and how you dine has been adjusted to a plated service and to incorporate social distancing and greater protection procedures.

The Land Of Enchantment is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate with its wide-open spaces, clean air, spectacular scenery, and sparsely populated regions. Our inns offer a small and safe refuge in Santa Fe, and we are ready to welcome you as guests.

During these unprecedented and unsettled times, we hope that you and your loved ones stay healthy and are able to do your part to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. With this in mind, we have temporarily closed our Four Kachinas Inn but are operating El Farolito as usual with additional safety measures but limited occupancy.

We are also continuing with painting, maintenance, and gardening projects so that the inns will be in tip-top shape when things return to normal. As you are probably confined to your home more than usual, we offer one of our favorite Southwestern recipes for your enjoyment as you reminisce about a past visit or plan a future one.

We would like to assure you that once the health risks have diminished and things return to normal, the El Farolito and Four Kachinas Inns will be ready to welcome you and provide hospitality services, as usual, to make your Santa Fe visit enjoyable and memorable. If you want to visit during these unsettled times, we will work extra hard to make your stay safe and pleasant.
