The staff person who checked us in and made a great breakfast (Juan) was really nice but that's about the most positive thing I can say about Casa Encinares.The place is run down and over priced at $100/night. A neighbor's dog barked until they got home (around 1am). When we got there around 2pm to check in, no one was... More

This was our second trip to the Valley as a couple, and we love it there. We booked relatively late and were able to secure a room for one night at Casa Encinares. Plan for a bouncy rugged road into the B&B grounds (we were happy to have our 4x4) and then you are greeted by Arturo, a wonderfully friendly... More

Casa Encinares was a great place to stay for a great price! 4 friends and I went to Valle de Guadalupe for wine tasting and stayed here for one night. We had a little casita to ourselves which was great. The only downfall was that it was the beginning of January and very very cold with no heat, so we... More

Don´t get me wrong they were AMAZING, Arturo and a woman who was helping him did their best during breakfast and while they were at the house. The place is in a beautiful location and secluded. The down side our experience was, the first night some of the guests brought a norteño (which is weird because in the regulations it... More

Arturo is amazing and this place is magical! It is wonderful to be so off the beaten path and not directly on the main road like most of the other hotels and B&B's in the area. Arturo was kind enough to let us book #8 which was a beautiful and peaceful 2 bedroom cottage at the top of the property... More

Making reservations was very easy. We emailed back and forth with Arturo, regarding availability, then secured our deposit with Paypal. He was very prompt to reply to my inquiries and with our confirmation which included a color map of the property. The drive from the US with the new detour near La Fonda is simple with terrific signage. We arrived... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a random weekend in the winter. There were horrible rainstorms and the roads were treacherous on the way there. We arrived late, I don't think they expected us to show up! There wasn't anyone at the place and we waited around for a good while until I could get a hold of the... More

I booked a couples trip for one night on Valentine's Day weekend and could not have imagined a more fun, relaxing, romantic weekend, and at a great price to boot. As others have mentioned the hospitality provided by Arturo, Victor and their family (in the true Mexican tradition) is second to none. All our meals were delicious, we especially enjoyed... More

Excellent spot. I reserved a room here after this other place cancelled my reservation out of the blue. Arturo was really nice over the phone and e-mailed me all the information about the B&B and I was able to pay my reservation with pay-pal ($5 surcharge ). We where the only guests there and the staff was super friendly, the... More
