We stayed at this wonderful Inn nestled in a very quiet residential neighborhood about a 15 minute walk to the Plaza during our two night stay in Taos. It is a beautiful place; very relaxing and tranquil. We were greeted and welcomed warmly by one of the Inn keepers who checked us in and showed us to our room several steps from the main house. There were some snacks offered in the living room of the main house though no drinks of any kind were available. Given the price of the place we found this amenity lacking. It would have been nice if wine, beer, or sangria was offered or at least some kind of juice. There were many menus available in the living room for us to choose a restaurant in the area. We chose Graham's Grill both nights we were in Taos.
If you walk to the Plaza and the main part of Taos, we suggest you walk straight up Montoya Street to Kit Carson Street. There is not any traffic on this road and it is safer than the other way.
Each breakfast we had was delicious, unique, and plentiful. The hospitality of the Innkeepers each morning was warm, attentive, and inviting. After breakfast, we toured the area including the Taos Pueblo which is an easy 15 minute drive from the Inn. After many hours of sightseeing we were hungry and tired. Instead of going to a restaurant, we decided to go to the local grocery store to buy some cheese, bread, wine, and other snacks and went back to the Inn to enjoy them in the courtyard by the fountain. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable way to end the day of driving and sightseeing. Later, we enjoyed the comforts of the living room as we spent time getting to know another couple who were guests of the Inn.
It was disappointing that the jacuzzi was no longer working and the available sauna was not in a very welcoming place to enter. But overall, given the location, beautiful inn, accommodations, breakfasts, and hospitality of the staff, we would recommend this Inn during your visit to Taos. It is not an inexpensive place to stay but a treat if you can afford it!
