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

We loved our stay just couple of weeks ago and enjoyed very tasty breakfast. The rooms are very nicely furnished with antics, the bed was very comfortable - big plus after hours of cross country skiing in the area. The owners are very nice and knowledgeable about the area. we felt most welcome and will be staying there again. Thank... More

Perfect location right across the street from the Chama train station in an old house converted to a B&B. The hosts are train and local history buffs and have lots of stories to tell. It was like staying with an aunt or old friend.

Beautiful and historic retreat in Chama...not only met, but exceeded our expectations! Wendy and Bonsall were very accommodating and extremely pleasant. The room was very comfortable, breakfast was delicious, and the location to the Cumbres Toltec Railroad couldn't have been better! Coming from Colorado Springs, we actually considered staying in Antonito, CO prior to our trip on the Cumbres Toltec... More

Stayed two nights, night before and night after train ride. It is clean, quaint, cozy, filled with antiques, history and "Wonderful Host". Parlor Car B&B is located across the street from train a short walk. We stayed in the PALMER room that is upstairs, clean, very cozy, warm and comfortable, with plenty of room to move around in.

We spent one night at The Parlor Car B&B before riding the train. Our room was clean and comfortable. Our hosts, Wendy and Bonsall, were very interesting and we have a nice evening visiting with them. Be sure to have Bonsall play their player piano for some good old time music. Our breakfast was a non-traditional one, but it was... More
