“Paradise found!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

There are no words to explain how wonderful and memorable our stay was at Ravens Ridge. We were there for four nights - including Christmas - and had a very difficult time leaving. Even after reading all the amazing reviews about Phyllis and Judge, they still can't convey the warm hospitality and absolutely delicious breakfasts that we experienced!

Both of us, having been in the hospitality business ourselves, were so impressed with not only the customer service, but also the true friendliness and welcome that we felt from Phyllis and Judge. I've never experienced that before,

We stayed in the casita and I had sent Phyllis a last minute request to have a Christmas tree put in the room to surprise my boyfriend. She went all out and had it all lit and decorated upon our arrival! I must say that this was one of the most unique and best Christmases I've had in a long time.

I can not say enough things about this wonderful rare jewel on the outskirts of Santa Fe! It We will definitely be back in the summer to see the hummingbirds and the garden blooming, and of course to see our new "friends", Phyllis and Judge. Highly recommended!! (Oh, and soooo romantic too!!)

Room Tip: Stayed in the casita...so much space and privacy and so romantic! Nice having a kitchen too!

Judge and Phyllis are amazing hosts and their B&B is pure heaven. Ravens Ridge is located about 5 miles outside of downtown Santa Fe, right off the Santa Fe trail (The very same trail that led to the conquest of the West) right off a lovely quaint dirt road.
From the moment that we turned on that little dirt road we knew that we had made the right choice.
We stayed in the Garden Room for 5 nights and loved it. This B&B is far away from everything (in a good way) and the only sounds we heard at night were those of coyotes roaming right outside the fenced area of it’s beautiful yard.
Both Judge and Phyllis are also AMAZING cooks and the breakfasts were delicious!! Everyone we met that was staying at the B&B were interesting, fun people too. Breakfasts at Raven’s Ridge felt like get-togethers with long lost friends.
Judge and Phyllis were also very helpful with advice on hikes, places to see, places to eat and shop. We followed their leads and did not regret one of them.
We have stayed in quite a few B&B’s and hotels all around the world and feel that Ravens Ridge is one of the best. No surprise that it is the #1 Santa Fe B&B on Tripadvisor. Very well deserved and we can’t wait to come back to visit!!!

Room Tip: I did not see the other rooms, but for $159 a night the Garden Room was a great value.

My husband surpassed me with a trip to Santa Fe and we stayed at Ravens Ridge. it was fabulous and I cannot wait to go back. Judge and Phyllis are wonderful hosts and the food they serve is perfect. They really made our stay very special. The Starlight room is very clean, beautiful, and romantic. The location is peaceful and everything is very well maintained. We will absolutely be back!!!!

When we went to Santa Fe early in October, we searched TripAdvisor and found Ravens Ridge ranked #1. So we tried it, and we weren't disappointed. We're experienced B&B-ers, and while we haven't been to any other B&Bs in Santa Fe, I'd bet any money that Ravens Ridge deserves its ranking. Phyllis and Judge are the most genuinely friendly hosts we've met in any B&B or inn anywhere, and everyhing about their operation - the rooms (we stayed in the Garden Room), the garden, breakfast, everything - is beautifully done, with love and care. We probably took 25 photos of the breakfast room - and the breakfasts - alone.

Ravens Ridge turned out to be the exact right place to start our tour of New Mexico. The garden was perfect for unwinding and relaxing, The location is great - quiet and scenic, but just a short drive in to town. If we visit Santa Fe again, which is entirely possible since we really enjoyed the city, there's no way we will even CONSIDER staying anywhere else except here.

Ravens Ridge is about 10 minutes out of town in a quiet and serene location (and close to Museum Hill). The bed and breakfast gardens and grounds are fantastic and if the weather is good (about a 90% chance in Santa Fe), the wonderful breakfast prepared by owners Phyllis and Judge will be served outside in the gazebo. The rooms are spacious and nicely appointed and you're made to feel welcome and at home as soon as you arrive. Phyllis and Judge are gracious, accommodating, and are so totally familiar with Santa Fe and its environs that it would be quite OK to put away your tour book and just go with their recommendations for whatever it is you have in mind to do.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Starlight" room and it was fantastic. It's large, the kingsize bed...

Visiting in Sante Fe we made reservations based on the Tripadvisor reviews. We were very happy with the accomadations and the host Judge and Phyliss were great . The b&b is out on the edge of town but only a 10-15 minute drive to the Plaza. The food was very good and the other guest there at the time were friendly and fun. They have a free parking area downtown for visits to the Plaza.The area of the b&b is very quiet and peaceful.

This was the fourth time my wife and I stayed at a B&B and it was the best by far. Phyllis and Judge treated us as if we were friends and family visiting them. First of all, the room we stayed in was extremely comfortable and clean. The bed was brand new and great on my back! We felt like we were staying in a five star hotel. The breakfast was gourmet. Phyllis and Judge had something different each morning and it was so yummy we asked her for the recipes.

Judge is an expert astronomer, even though he's modest and says that he isn't. He brought out his telescope the second night we were there and he treated us to a marvelous show of the stars. He had a laser pointer and showed us the "milky way" another galaxy, nebula, etc. It was a highlight of our trip.

Phyllis was so detailed in describing restaurants and day trips and her suggestions helped to make our visit to Northern New Mexico wonderful.

We are planning to return next Fall.
