This is a charming, historic home in conveniently located just a few blocks from the Cumbres & Toltec Railroad station. We appreciated the inn’s railroad/old West décor. It wonderfully complimented the ride on the historic steam railroad for a satisfying overall experience. Our hosts, Dee and Lee Bates, were gracious and helpful. The home was spotless and neat.

The Gandy Dancer Bed and Breakfast is a very cute stop right near the Cumbres and Toltec Railroad, a one block hop, skip, and jump. Checking in we were given the Caboose room upstairs very nice, bright and airy. The B&B is beautifully decorated and the breakfasts were delicious. At the outset our host, Dee, was delightful.

We came to Chama to ride the train and discovered the Gaudy Dancer B & B. We were warmly greeted and given a tour. The rooms are railroad themed and ours was lovely and very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and served around the train plans of us all. I enjoyed looking at all the decor including the funny sayings... More

Thank you so much for the kind words you shared on Trip Advisor! Glad you liked the décor throughout the house and of course your room. Old houses have their own personality, which I believe you discovered. Hopefully you will head our way in the future and pay us another visit! California really isn't that far away! Our best, Dee...

Went up to Chama to ride the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic train. If you make reservations there, you get a discount on your train tickets (so make your train reservation second). Dee and Lee are awesome hosts, breakfast was delicious and the accommodations were even better then before (most comfortable bed). We'll be back!

Was great having you pay us a visit again!!! Yes, that 15% on the train ticket is nice, so appreciate you mentioning for people to make their reservations here first, then we will pass on the special code to get that 15% discount. Not a bad deal!! Thank you also for sharing your thoughts about your visit on Trip Advisor.... More

Great inn keepers. Very accommodating and responsive to special occasions. Even schedule the amazing breakfasts around the guest's train plans. You must ride the train. And spend the few extra dollars for the Parlor Car. The inn was clean, quiet and charming. Did I mention the gourmet breakfasts. We were there for four nights and would recommend it highly.

Hopefully you will want to leave 'hot' Texas in the future and head to the mountains and some cool weather....maybe without the rain in the future! Our best, Dee & Lee More

Dee met us at the door and gave us a tour of her lovely home. Loved all the antiques and train memorabilia. There were homemade cookies on arrival and an unbelievable breakfast. Perfect place to overnight before or after the train.

Stayed two nights in June to ride the Chama narrow gauge train. There were four of us including my 7 year old greatgranddaughter. Our room was very comfortable and large enough to accomodate all of us. Loved the cookies and large breakfast. Dee was a great host. We would love to stay at Gandy Dancer B&B again sometime.

We appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on Trip Advisor concerning your stay with us. Twas a great concert I understand and so glad you enjoyed it! You folks deserved a little extra sleep after getting in so late, thus the 9:00 breakfast! Many thanks again for spending time with us and hope in the near future... More

We rode the dinner train to Osier Pass to attend the awsome Chris Collins concert. What FUN it was. When we got back to the B&B there was a plate of homemade cookies & bottled water in front of our door. Since the train got back late at night; Dee & Lee thoughtfully served us a 9AM late breakfast so... More

We chose this b&b after reading all the great reviews and because of its location near town. Owners were delightful. Food was deliciously prepared and nicely served. Room was immaculate as was the whole house. Furnishings were nicely displayed.only complaint was that e did not stay longer. Would highly recommend this B & B.
