Not every house is a home. What allows a mere building to become the place in which we can be our truest, most comfortable selves is the love and joy of family and friendship. And so when we invite you to our Inn, we hope to invite you to more than simply a place to sleep, but truly your home away from home, even if just for a night.
Giving credence to the claim that the inn will become your home away from home, the innkeepers and managers, Antoni and Natalia Niemczak, really do call the inn home, as they live there with their youngest daughter Zofia and their dog Kaya. Natives of Poland, the Niemczaks give the Inn not only a Southwest feel, but also add in a bit of European charm.
Antoni was a world-class marathon runner who either won or placed in the top three in several of the major world marathons. By running and training in Albuquerque he fell in love with the Land of Enchantment and decided to move to the city with the aspiration of starting a high altitude training camp for his fellow athletes. He eventually came across the beautiful Inn at Paradise, which afforded him ideal conditions for such an endeavor. In the summer of 1999, Antoni moved into the inn with his wife Natalia and four children Karolina, Diana, Michael and Zofia. Since then the inn has hosted Olympic athletes from Germany, Italy, Poland, Ireland, Japan, France, and many other countries.
Natalia has a passion and true talent in gardening and décor. The lush gardens and cozy rooms are thanks to her vision and hard work. Her dedication each day makes the inn just as much a home for Olympic champions as for vacationing families.
We welcome everyone to come and stay at our inn, whether to just relax for the weekend or to have a place to call home while on a business trip; to train for the Olympics or for that next golf tournament; to celebrate a wedding or to enjoy a family reunion; whatever your reason for staying with us, we'll be glad to have you!
Diana is the event coordinator for the Inn she will help you plan the perfect event in one of the most beautiful locations in Albuquerque so whether you are planning a wedding or a graduation party, a birthday or a baby shower, she will be there every step of the way.
Dear Future Guest,
We would love to get to know you and have the opportunity to make a new friend. We invite you to stay at our Inn or host your next event with us. We welcome you and your family, pets and all. If you want to experience a bed and breakfast with the warmth of a home, then we welcome you to ours. We trust that you will have a wonderful time and we look forward to being able to meet you!
The Niemczak Family
