“Afternoon Tea”

I had a special afternoon tea last week. What an amazing experience, Great food, great service and a warm and friendly atmosphere. I did not stay at the B&B but the rooms I saw were well decorated and appeared comfortable, lots of antiques.

My husband and I were married here and stayed the night before our ceremony as well as the night of. Gosh, we just LOVED the feeling of it all! Steve, Kara, and Lindsey (their wedding planner) were truly amazing! How the three of them worked together to help create our dream day is something I am so grateful for. Without their help and know-how I don't know what we would have done! The bed & breakfast experience here was so wonderful! The room we stayed in was very comfortable and their breakfast was delicious!! Our family also stayed at the B&B the night of the wedding and absolutely loved their rooms. My husband and I will be back!

We stayed 3 nights with Kara and Steve and what a treat. Their attention to detail was amazing. Sensational breakfasts with a new menu item every day. They have laundry facilities with machines that wash and dry within an hour. No charge. It's a short walk to the University with a number of different attractions. Two very good restaurants a short distance from the house.

Room Tip: Pick the Gold Room in the Spy House. You get your own, private entrance,

First review on trip advisor here, so please bear with me.

I stayed at the Spy House for 4 nights. The accommodations are fantastic, this place is a dream. Great history, architecture, very cozy, amazing decor; this B&B delivers on every aspect. Not only is it beautiful, it is also in a great location (steps away from pizza place, Artichoke Cafe, downtown, Convention Center - you name it). The selling point here is the dedication and hospitality of its owners and its staff. They are amazing at what they do, which is, to make you feel at home. Highly recommend this B&B. Check out their Murder Mystery nights -from what I have heard, they are a blast.

Downtown Historic B&B - Thank you for being such great hosts!

This was our first actual visit to ABQ (we usually go straight to Santa Fe). We decided to stay in a B&B (instead of a hotel) - often no more expensive than a reasonably priced hotel and more character. Well, character this had. We chose not to rent a car, so one of the deciding factors was the downtown location - an easy and inexpensive shuttle ride from the airport. Many restaurants and other activities were located within easy walking distance/access to public transportation. The people of ABQ were very friendly and helpful in navigating the public transportation system. We stayed in the Freeman room at the Spy House (they own 2 adjacent buildings). The accommodations were perfect for our visit. We happened to be the only ones in the house, so it was very quiet. The bedroom was very comfortable and we loved the clawfoot tub in the bathroom. The books on the shelf in the living room were very interesting and the house has lots of interesting historical "things".. The Internet connection was good. Breakfast was scrumptious! The owners are very nice. We saw mostly Steve Grant during our stay, but Kara popped in briefly. They also have turkeys and bunnies in the back yard - a beautiful place to hang out or hold a gathering (like a wedding reception). The properties are also often used for film shoots (like the series "Crash"). All in all a fabulous start to our vacation. We should have done this sooner.

I stayed one night in the Heritage house and four in the Spy House. Both were great - lovely rooms - very clean and charming. I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts - everything was delicious and used local ingredients, including eggs from the back garden. It's a central location, although probably more convenient if you have a car. I felt that the innkeeper Steve really went the extra mile to make me feel at home and there were loads of extra touches (like cookies, cold drinks, irons in the rooms) to make this a very enjoyable stay.

I was looking for something a bit different than the usual conference hotel. What I found was a unique combination of gracious accommodations, great food and extraordinary hosts. I stayed in Spy House which has a fascinating history and charming decor. The whole house was warm and inviting, like staying at a good friends place. Both Kara and Steve were welcoming, friendly and helpful. I couldn't have made a better choice!

Green Features: I really appreciated the owners sensitivity to sound sustainable practices and their commitment to locally sourced foods.
