This was my first time to SMA. I could not have been happier with my choice of lodging. The owners, Heidi and Bill made it an experience I won't soon forget. They open up their B&B with warm, welcoming arms. I truly felt like we were friends from the past. The B&B is inviting from the first step in. If you love Mexican art you will be blown away. The richness in decor and thoughtful layout of casa de la cuesta was stunning. My sweet room was tucked away in my own little corner. I felt so safe and well cared for. Morning breakfast with the fellow guests was a special treat. Home cooked mexican dishes along with fresh fruits, yogurts and all kinds of jams and special sauces were wonderful to explore. Bill and Heidi's knowledge of the town and wonderful recommendations of things to do during my stay made it so easy for me to fall in love with the town. Would I go back - YOU BET. Keeping my fingers crossed that I can bring some other friends to experience this special place.

My husband and I have been to Casa de la Cuesta half a dozen times over the years. Each time we experience a deep sense of wonder when we first walk into the creative, loving spaces created by Heidi and Bill, the curators of this gem. The views of the city are stunning. While there are many wondrous places to stay in San Miguel, none could be more authentic than this. It’s a treasure.

Six of us had a 5 day stay at Casa de la Cuesta last week. The photos before hand made it look nice, but seeing the accommodations in person was something else. Each room, each corner of each room was so beautifully decorated with the arts of Mexico, and every detail to make our stay comfortable was thought of. Heidi bent over backwards to accommodate our every need. She helped us with any arrangements we needed to make, she made us feel at home in her home....even giving us some peanut butter to go with the bread we brought home one night to eat don the veranda. Even presented a birthday cake to our honored birthday girl, with a special hat, candles and the staff sang! We just felt completely at home! The roof top bars in town are nice, but the best view of the city is from the Casa de la Cuesta upstairs patio, where there is table and chairs, cozy couches and a self serve bar! We enjoyed hiking with Bill one day, and we learned a lot about masks and Mexican culture and history from him on a tour of the adjoining Mask museum. Heidi’s lecture on folk art was fascinating and she helped us become more discerning shoppers, teaching us what to look for in terms of art in the markets. The breakfast they serve daily is delicious and healthy, and Heidi even shared some of the local recipes with me. Our stay at Casa de la Cuesta could not have been improved in any way. Heidi is the quintessential host and when we left, we felt like we were leaving a good friend!

A lot of B&B operators offer up the saying “Mi casa es tu casa” on check in but somehow lose the plot a day or two later. But not the team at Casa de la Cuesta. Heidi and Bill hosted my wife Liz and me for 10 days while we attended the SMA writers conference and at the end we felt we’d been staying with friends we’d known for years. It’s a tall order to deliver that warm personal touch — particularly after being in the hospitality business for two decades — but somehow they still do it. All the past reviews praising the decor, attentive staff and extraordinary breakfasts — and Bill’s exceptional mask museum —completely jive with our impressions. They’ve built an incredible business here, controlling and improving what they can while serenely accepting those things they can’t. (Morning serenades from neighbourhood roosters and dogs, occasional loud music on weekend nights from nearby saloons, and all those other spontaneous and unexpected eruptions that so define the charm and allure of Mexico. For us at least.) Hopefully we'll back for a visit next winter.

If you're looking for an enchanting San Miguel experience, I would highly recommend Casa de la Cuesta. Our stay was fantastic. Bill and Heidi were gracious, knowledgeable, and down to earth hosts who made our preliminary arrangements, our stay there and our departure strategy stress free. The palatial and breathtaking property is flawlessly decorated with authentic local folk art and traditional Mexican themes. The traditional mask museum attached to the property curated by Bill is incredible and a must see. Our room was comfortable and dreamily quaint, with a fireplace and small kitchen attached. The rooftop views can't be beat. Breakfast was outstanding! If you're looking for a colorful and immersive experience with hosts who are experts on the local art and culture scene, this is your place.We can't say enough about how magical our stay there was, it was both relaxing and educational and we felt both fortified and enriched by our stay.
