This is a wonderful Bed and Breakfast. It is walking distance from the Taos Plaza and great shopping. Tom and Barbara are great hosts and the breakfast is delicious. We loved our room and the atmosphere in all the rooms of this Inn. We will be back and bring our family next time.

Off the beaten path, a place you'll want to come back to often. A B&B reminiscence of a bygone era. On a side street not the main drag two blocks away from the main square, nestled in amongst art galleries, is pure delight. Sitting out on the patio on a cool clear night with the soft breezes and the fragrance... More

Coming from the north Midwest, we truly appreciated the authentic Mexican atmosphere. Beautiful artwork, furnishings... Our room was lovely, comfy bed, even a small wood fireplace. Step outside to quiet patio, shared with one other guest. We didn't care about Wi-Fi or TV. This lovely space beckoned us to avoid tech and just enjoy.

Pros. Great location within blocks of everything. The best afternoon treats I have ever experienced. There are several freshly baked and I mean several freshly baked treats. I do not think any B&B does a better job with the afternoon treats. The breakfast is excellent with table service and the food is excellent with cook to order. A real Southwestern... More

I've stayed here several times and it is always my favorite place to stay in Taos- The rooms are large and the bed one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in--The property is very beautiful--the breakfast rocks!!! It doesn't get a 5 star this time because several days before my arrival, I called and changed my booking--was told all... More

Beautiful B&B walking distance to the hub of Taos. The main dining room was welcoming,beautiful table settings, lovely colors. We arrived in time for High Tea, with delicious home baked cookies and cakes. But what is with the Styrofoam cups? it missed the mark. The rooms were quaintly named but needed serious updating. No wi-fi in the rooms? That's being... More

We arrive in Taos in the morning and were greeted by lovely young lady who check us into our room early. The room was in an adjacent building with a small grassy court yard that we shared with another room. Perfect, because we have a 5 year old that could play outside. The room was clean and charming with two,... More

To us, this is not a B& B like we know them, it is more of a motel plus an old house made into rooms with another house for checking in and eating. There are a couple of nice places to sit and read etc. as well in the house for dining. The room we were in was not clean... More
