Stayed overnight prior to trip on narrow gauge. Owners are nice folks. Wendy and Bonsall are great hosts. Perfect location. Food was excellent. We got a better appreciation of the town, its history and the railroad from our hosts.

The Parlor Car is a cozy B&B with friendly hosts and hearty breakfasts. Our stay in Chama included a ride on the Cumbres Toltec Railroad. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about this train and were able to give us value able tips and historical background. This is a great place to stay if you're planning to take the scenic train...

After deciding to ride the Cumbres & Toltec Narrow Gauge, we had to find a place to stay and chose the Parlor Car B & B and are so glad we did. Wendy and Bonsall were the best hosts - they were warm and inviting and made you feel right at home. Wendy's breakfasts were delicious and was just the... More

Fantastically friendly hosts. Super Yummy Breakfasts. Wonderfully comfy bed in lovely, cozy room. Check out Wendy's cook-book; it makes a wonderful gift for yourself or anyone close. Consider staying here; it certainly beats a motel room. And, you can walk across the street to the train station!

Wendy is a charmer and makes you feel like family in her home. The room and inn was very comfortable, and I have to give her extra credit for a perfect breakfast. Six months before we showed up she had already reached out to us to find out our likes, dislikes and can't eat things. The meal was just the... More

We had a wonderful experience at the Parlor Car. Wendy and Bonsall are very knowledgeable about the Cumbres & Toltec, and they are kind and considerate hosts. The food and accommodations were excellent.

We stayed the night before our ride on the Cumbres and Toltec Railroad. Wendy and Bonsall were wonderful. We felt right at home, our room was comfortable and clean, with nice little touches like a pitcher of ice water for refreshment after a long car ride.

My mom, daughter, and I spent a night before riding the railroad. Wendy had a well-appointed room complete with cookies and personalized notes ready for us when we got there. She was most helpful when we were trying to select a dinner option and was well acquainted with the town, and the historic rail road trip that we were planning... More

We spent two nights at the Parlor Car while taking the train. The stay was outstanding. Wendy goes out of her way to ensure you are comfortable. She is a good cook, and the breakfasts were tasty. Rooms are clean and well maintained. There is a large selection of railroad books and area books in the parlor. If you are... More

Wendy and Bonsall always make you feel at home and have wonderful nice touches in the room. The Palmer Room bed that I stayed in was spectacularly ccomfortable with the new Tempurpedic mattress! This B and B is directly across from the Cumbres and Toltec RR train station and is highly convenient. Also, if you like to hear old player... More
