From the minute we started looking for a small hotel online to attend my niece's wedding, everything went smoothly at Casa de la Cuesta. It was easy to navigate the site and see the rooms and easy to book and send a deposit. I already had a Paypal account so within minutes we were confirmed. We discovered the room we reserved was originally the master bedroom and the view from our bed was the night lights of downtown San Miguel! So beautiful! Also, the rooms (we checked them all out for a family reunion mas tarde) all have lovely bathrooms and lighthearted whimsical feeling as well as the down-home comfort of old Mexico.
Our stay at Casa de la Cuesta changed my feelings about Bed and Breakfasts. We felt like family instead of interlopers or like we were being forced to meet people that we had nothing in common with or were boring. SMA just doesn't attract those kinds of people and Heidi and Bill are fascinating bright people. The tour of the mask museum - an attached building, was enlightening and educational. Heidi's folk art store is much more than that. She told us stories and gave us insight to the artisans she represents. You wanted to buy a piece of each but there was no pressure if you didn't. The Levasseurs simply love what they are doing and it is evident in the food and the ambience and hospitality.
