We were in Taos from September 30th until October 3rd, where we stayed at the Hacienda del Sol, a charismatic bed and breakfast nestled at the foot of Taos Mountain. It is owned by award winning chef, Gerd Hertel, and his wife, Luellen Hertel and is managed also by their daughter, Erika Hertel and her husband, Mark Carroll. It is described as one of USA Today’s 10 most romantic bed and breakfasts with, “breathtaking views, historical relevance and intimate privacy” that fuses with the relaxing and healing energy of Taos. All true. The owners and managers are gracious and warm people who offer outstanding service, wonderful breakfasts and perfect hospitality. This was the perfect place for our wedding, but more on that in a future blog.
