Our stay was delightful. Wendy and Bonsill are gracious hosts and Wendy is an outstanding cook. Wendy goes out of her way to ensure guests enjoy themselves. It's an easy two block walk to train station from the B&B.The only reason I'm giving four stars instead of five is the lack of air conditioning. Most of the year it wouldn't... More

Wendy and 'Doc' were extremely nice. The rooms, furnished with their furniture are very comfortable and elegant. Wendy does a very good breakfast and tries to do a large variety of food so you could stay there a week and not get a repeat.

If you are going to Chama for the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, then you want to stay in the Parlor Car B&B. For one thing, it is two short blocks to the Depot. More importantly, Wendy and Doc are Friends of the C&TSRR (Doc is a docent), and they are passionate about the train. You will learn all sorts... More

The accommodations, and especially the company of proprietors Wendy and Bonsall Johnson, were a delightful experience. A delicious breakfast followed a comfortable quiet night in a well-appointed room. We will be back again soon.

We stayed in Parlor Car again to cross country ski nearby. When there is no snow where we live there is always snow in La Mangs Pass and Cumbress Pass area. It was as wonderful as during our previous stay. The owners are most gracious, we had the best conversation over yummy breakfast.

Stayed overnight prior to trip on narrow gauge. Owners are nice folks. Wendy and Bonsall are great hosts. Perfect location. Food was excellent. We got a better appreciation of the town, its history and the railroad from our hosts.

The Parlor Car is a cozy B&B with friendly hosts and hearty breakfasts. Our stay in Chama included a ride on the Cumbres Toltec Railroad. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about this train and were able to give us value able tips and historical background. This is a great place to stay if you're planning to take the scenic train...

After deciding to ride the Cumbres & Toltec Narrow Gauge, we had to find a place to stay and chose the Parlor Car B & B and are so glad we did.
