Owner Lisa Kwas wants prospective guests to know about the plentiful amenities at Lazy K Ranch, whose name might be slightly misleading. Although nestled in the wilderness of New Mexico, the bed and breakfast is not as rustic as one might think.
"Our B&B sits on ten wooded acres with great views," Kwas said. "Each of our rooms has a private bath with boutique toiletries, hair dryers, and large fluffy terry robes, and the main house has an indoor hot tub that is open to all our guests."
Guests can escape into nature without being deprived of the bare necessities of a comfortable and impeccable hotel.
"We have an 11-item menu, all handmade by me, posted on our website that the guests may choose their entrees from," Kwas said. The menu includes traditional favorites such as eggs benedict, quiche loraine, chile releno casserole, apple cake, and breakfast pie among others. The ingredients are fresh, local, and natural, and explore the rich culinary tradition of the Southwest.
For instance, the huevos rancheros combines traditional Southwest and Mexican flavors such as beans, cheddar cheese, fresh tortillas, and green chile sauce garnished with homemade salsa. The chile releno is a thick and hearty casserole of eggs, cheddar, Monterey jack cheeses, and green chiles with sour cream and salsa. All of the ranch's breakfast options include fresh fruit and homemade breads such as muffins, banana bread, or biscuits. Their oven-fresh french toast is especially popular among guests and is generously soaked in a mixture of fresh eggs, milk, brown sugar, and nuts.
The main house at Lazy K Ranch is a two-story, West Victorian, ranch-style cedar structure wrapped by plenty of deck space. There are two guest rooms located on the first floor, each with a private bath. Guests can also find a large common room with sofas and chairs, a large TV, bar, and cozy fireplace on the first floor of the house, while the upstairs consists of a well-stocked kitchen, hot tub, and a second common space with luxurious leather sofas and a large rose quartz fireplace. For those wanting to stay a bit further from the main attraction, there is a log cabin 1,500 feet from the main building with two guest rooms, private baths, living room with a fireplace.
"The decor is Western Mountain with cozy patchwork quilts and, of course, the beautiful nine-inch logs throughout," Kwas said.
Kwas thinks that Lazy K Ranch is the perfect getaway from our hectic lifestyles, not too close and not too far away, quiet and secluded. You'll have gorgeous views and amazing starry nights.
