“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

My wife and I stopped here in mid June for one night while on a motorcycle trip. A previous review cautioned us about lack of places for dinner in area, so we picked up a carry out pizza and salad in Grants and some wine from Albuquerque. This proved very satisfactory. The place is remote, sitting on 40 acres, nestled in Ponderosa pine, and bordered on three sides by undeveloped 'wilderness' and a small ranch across the highway. Our suite - the Bandera - was large, clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Breakfast consisted of a delicious, fully loaded omelet, fresh fruit plate and croissants. The profusion of colorful birds visiting the many feeders was a treat, after dark, the bizillion stars were almost within our reach, and the tranquility of the area was soothing from the moment we pulled into the driveway. There were no other guests the night we were there, and the owner lives several miles away, so we had the place to ourselves.
We were initially anxious about the price, as it pushed the boundary of our budget. But after our stay, we decided it was among the best values we've ever received in our many travels.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cimarron Rose. Sheri was a pleasure, and our suite had a full kitchen, lots of space and a fabulous patio that we wanted to take home with us. Stayed until checkout time because we didn't want to leave the wonderful patio earlier than necessary. I strongly recommend this B&B and would stay there again, happily.

Cimarron Rose is not at Grants, but 30 miles away on the Continental Divide, on scenic highway 53 between El MaisPais and El Murro National Monuments. We booked into this "Zuni Mountain B & B" for 3 nights in May 2012 and stayed for 5, in the Zuni Mountain Suite, with two bedrooms, lounge, kitchen-diner, and lovely big bathroom, plus patios opening off almost every room - you could catch the sun, or the shade, at any time of day, with spectacular sunsets. Cimarron took comfort, equipment, and attention to detail to the highest level.

This is a place to stop, relax, and chill out. The kitchen was fully stocked so, with some shopping in Gallup we could have meals in the evenings, while Sheri brought more than a lovely breakfast each morning, but a warm welcome and perfect laid-back hospitality. Her fresh asparagus and cheese omelettes one morning were simply superb, accompanied by lovely bread, natural yoghurt and fresh fruit, a great start to the day.

Cimarron is a "green" eco-friendly place to stay with Cimarron, the horse, plus the goats and the lovely gardens, emphasising you are out-of-town and away from the City, in peace and quiet, the wind whispering through the trees, the day beds the perfect place to stop and read. Sheri runs a gallery on the property with wonderful examples of Indian art for sale.

Sometimes a real holiday means you need to escape from hotels too, and for us Cimarron delivered a great special experience, enhanced by the welcome from Sheri.

Room Tip: Each room is characterful. We liked the extra space in the Zuni Mountain Suite.

We (mom, dad and 11 year old son) spent 2 nights at this wonderful b&b during a Spring Break trip to northern NM. The inn is warm, welcoming and comfortable. (Not to mention immaculate!) We stayed in the Bandera Suite which had a queen bed and a twin bed and a fully stocked kitchen. The breakfast was delicious and hearty. Blue corn pancakes one morning and a delicious frittata the next. The innkeeper, Sheri, is delightful and generous with her knowledge of the area, it's history and the geography of northern NM. The property can be explored and my son loved helping Sheri feed the resident goats and watching her feed her horse, Cimmaron, for whom the inn is named. The inn is ideally situated for exploring El Malpais and El Morro. After a day of exploring, it was wonderful to be able to return to the inn and spend a quiet evening outside star gazing by the fire. If you don't mind cooking while on vacation, get basic provisions in Grants (about 25 miles down the mountain) before you arrive and plan to make a simple dinner and enjoy a quiet evening on the mountain. We did not and each night we had to drive back and forth to Grants where dining options are limited. The next time we stay here (and there will be a next time!) we will eat in. The inn also has a small gift shop of locally handmade crafts and jewelry. Sheri is familiar with the artists and their traditions. Bring cash, as you will find a wonderful souvenir to take home and remind you of your stay at this b&b.

Room Tip: Each room has its own charm and different bedding arrangements. Each has it's own private patio...

My family and I stayed here in order to visit El Morro, El Malpais, Ice Cave, and then onto Chaco Canyon. Cimarron Rose was the perfect location for accessing all these places. The room we had (Cimmaron) was spacious and cozy; the kitchen was nicely stocked and nicely appointed. The bathroom had a tub but lacked a proper stand up shower (the innkeeper is working on that). Sherri, the innkeeper was very helpful, accessible and generous with her time and advice. The blue corn pancakes were a big hit with my kids. We would come back; and if you want to see all these fabulous sites, Cimarron Rose is absolutely your best option.

This may be my favorite B & B of all time--each suite is beautifully furnished with southwestern decor--cozy and comfortable. The outdoor patios and gardens are so restful. Shari makes a wonderful breakfast and delivers it to your suite. This B & B is situated in an area that doesn't get as much attention as the northern part of the state but it is beautiful and the ride from Albuquerque is breathtaking. The best part of Cimmaron Rose is Shari, the owner. She is extremely helpful and knowledgable.

My husband and two children and I ventured out for an overnight in the Grant's area hoping for a restful break from Albuquerque. We hiked at El Morro National Monument and then retreated for an evening at Cimarron Rose. We loved the cozy, woodsy room with wonderful southwest decor, a stock of cut logs and kindling for the wood burning stove, and the great music collection that Sherri provided. Throughout the evening, we watched the falling snow on the pines and in the morning the kids bundled up for a snow ball fight and the opportunity to build a family of snow people. Sherri delivered to us a bountiful breakfast of fruit, eggs and blue corn pancakes which left us fully nourished for our trip home.
