Loved that it was quiet and not so busy due to minimal rooms. We stayed at the new small building in the Hoppi room. The room presents a nice cozy feel with the neutral colors. Lovely two chair, with ottomans, sitting space by the fireplace. Bathroom is very large with large walk in shower. We did lots of looking at... More

We have been going to Vanessie for a number of years even back when it was the Water Street Inn. We've stayed in several different rooms, but most often in Tesuque, which is very spacious. The bed is very comfortable once you can climb into it but I asked for a step stool, which made a big difference. I believe... More

This inn was perfect for what we were looking for! Mary Ann was wonderful! Very kind, friendly and accommodating! She welcomed us every morning to breakfast and asked us how our stay was going, if we needed anything or suggestions on things to do for the day! We are so thankful to her for making our first-time visit to Santa... More

Wonderful experience from check in to check out. Very quiet area but close enough to Plaza to walk comfortably. Staff was exceptional, especially Mary Ann, who was always friendly, pleasant and willing to answer questions. She epitomized customer service and seemed to be everywhere taking care of everything...always with a smile. The room was extremely comfortable, beds were fabulous, linens... More

Lovely boutique Inn away from the Plaza. Beautifully decorated rooms - each one different. Lots of water features on the property too. Breakfast provided in the airy Vanessie Restaurant. Omelete (or scrambled eggs), fruit/yoghurt/granola, juice and coffee or tea. My only recommendation is that the breakfast could be improved with more options and higher quality products.

This is a very lovely hotel. It reminded us of a small European hotel. Rooms were very cozy. The location is great because you are only a few blocks from the Plaza, but in a quiet neighborhood so you don't have all the traffic and noise. The piano bar was an especially nice treat. The 2 performers were very talented... More

This B&B was only three blocks away from the Plaza. We stayed for 4 nights and had a relaxing stay. Enjoyed a nice complimentary breakfast and enjoyed some very good piano bar type entertainment with Doug Montgomery. Parking is tough, but where isn't it in the Plaza area. We had a parking spot at the Inn each night, only difficulty... More

We had a great experience from start to finish. We had never been to Santa Fe and the man who helped with our reservation to the time to describe each room available to fine the perfect fit. Room 8 was perfect. Romantic, quiet, perfectly appointed, beams in the ceilings and an incredibly comfortable bed. The inn keeper was helpful in... More

We have enjoyed staying at the Inn at Vanessie over the years. When we drive down to Santa Fe from our home in Taos, we know that we will be greeted in a friendly and accomodating manner by a wonderful young woman, Mary Ann who seems to be able to do it all!. The rooms are lovely , beautifully (tasteful)... More
