Located in the Upper Chihuahuan Desert of Southern New Mexico, with an elevation of 3900 ft. above sea level, Las Cruces captures the heart of all who visit with its rich history, the beauty of its mountains and vistas and the hospitality of the multi-cultured people. The Inn of the Arts is located in the historic district of Las Cruces, at 618 S. Alameda Blvd., just a short walk to the Downtown Mall where on Wednesday & Saturday mornings visitors may shop for an array of New Mexico’s finest gifts and foods at the Farmer’s Market. (Rated in the top 10 Arts and Crafts Markets in the country.)
Follow the trail of Don Juan de Onate into La Mesilla (5 minutes away), and roam the streets of Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett while enjoying some of the nicest galleries and finest food in the world. Linda and Jerry Lundeen have managed to blend their Boutique Inn, Art Gallery and devotion to Southwestern culture so thoroughly together that it’s impossible to separate the three. Every wall of this historic Las Cruces adobe lined with paintings, most of which are for sale. Each guest room is named after a famous New Mexican or Indian artist and decorated accordingly.
