Points of Interest

Just north of the university, 14 sublimely private and controlled acres deploy a succession of gardens crazed with flowers and trees, separated by little gates and laid out with the whimsy of an English estate. It is a feat to find your room, but on your way you bump into teams of gardeners busily planting pansies and stock, trimming hedges,... More

2. Blue Canyon Gallery

Blue Canyon Gallery is the first place you reach driving into Magdalena from Socorro—the gallery, a house, and a kiln. In the shop one finds pottery made by owner Barbara Moore, and jewelry made by Indians on the nearby Alamo Navajo Reservation.

Rooms come with Mission-style rockers, fringed Victorian lampshades, locally stitched quilts, and original blackboards—complete... More

This Pie Town establishment sells butterscotch, dutch apple crumb, New Mexico apple, cherry, peach, blueberry, (and on weekends:) banana cream, coconut cream, and chocolate pies. Though pies are the obvious specialty, try the green-chile stew before ordering a hearty dessert.
