Lori and Lee are delightful hosts. Lee is a great story teller, ask Lori about her connections with rock and roll in her youth. Stayed in the Mustang Room, cozy and comfortable. Coffee/tea left outside the room before breakfast. Breakfast is hearty, served at 8:30.

We only had one night at Rancho Magdalena but for sure we would love to come back and spend more time there. The hosts are super friendly and welcoming. We loved the room with an open Kiva Fireplace and we loved the fresh coffee put in front of our door at 7am. The breakfast was by far the best we...

We had heard there was a great B&B in Magdalena so decided to stay there while visiting the Very Great Array. Our visit was an unexpected delight. The room was comfortable and included an old record player with lots of records from our era (Beach Boys, etc). The highlight was our host and hostess, Lee and Lori. They were very...

The B&B was like returning home to family. We had delicious gourmet breakfasts after coffee and biscotti were waiting outside of our room each morning. Rooms have no TV but you are free to watch in the main living room. The property is located on a ranch with cows, dogs, and cats-an animal-loving property. Definitely a place to return to...

A really charming place to stay with excellent hosts, who make you feel part of the family. I heartily recommend anyone to stay here. The location is lovely and remote and the room really comfy and the breakfast out of this world. Lord and Lee are the best hosts ever

I had the pleasure as I was walking across America to stay at this gem. Lee and Lisa are the owners of this wonderful B&B. I've been to 100 countries and have stayed in every type of hotel, B&B you can think of. Rancho Magdalena and it's wonderful owners are not to be missed. Wonderful accommodations with southern hospitality are...

FANTASTIC. Neither words or actions can express the joy and delightful time staying at the Rancho Magdalena. Staying here was the highlight of our trip. Lee and Lori made us feel so at home and comfortable. Lee was a fantastic tour guide and Lori cooks up a breakfast that is out of this world

We had just overnight stop here as were visiting the VLA on our way down to Las Cruces. We really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was very well appointed and comfortable and it was such a peaceful location. Our hosts Lori and Lee were lovely and we had fun sitting out in the front porch in the evening chatting...

Rancho Magdalena a special place that is immaculately clean, well maintained and furnished, very comfortable, and beautifully managed. The outdoor haven and quiet open space provide quiet rejuvenation and restoration from in town options. The location is a destination itself or the perfect home base for exploring the area's many historic sites and nature preserves. You'll awake to coffee or...

We travelled through Magdalena to see Bosque del Apache and the VLA and chose to stay here as opposed to staying in a chain hotel in Socorro. The host and hostess, Lee and Lori, are easygoing and fun. Lee has many entertaining experiences to share. Lori's food is fabulous. Our room was quaint and quiet. We woke each morning to...
