Our stay was in Studio Ava in Casitas Patzcuaro, Victoria's long-term stay option. Down the street from Casa Encantada and half way up a hill, this was a great choice for us. While we had breakfast at the hotel, we could make our own lunches or dinners, if we chose to do so. This gavs us the incentive - and experience - to shop in the Patzcuaro market for our fruit and vegetables. The bed was perfect, and the neighbourhood was quiet ... just Church bells and a lazy rooster (he got tired and quit!). There's even a great little torilleria just down the street! The only caution: this option is not for those with mobility issues. Casa Encantada is a better choice. Patzcuaro can be cold, but a heater was supplied. We learnex from other travellers that some B & B hotels don't supply heaters. Check first! Victoeia is a gracious host, and her staff are first rate! Friendly, helpful and capable. We hope to return soon.

Casa Encantada books this holiday weekend years in advance, but take heart, they have a wait-list, and that's how we got our reservations. A room opened up, we were notified by email, and jumped on it immediately. We had stayed at the Casa the year before, off-season, and as the name implies we were enchanted. Casa Encantada is beautifully appointed with folk art that is whimsical, magical, and excellently done. The public spaces and rooms are comfortable, airy, and alive with color. I don't think you could spend a melancholy moment. All the staff were friendly and accommodating, and the full house didn't rattle them a bit. Breakfasts were large and delicious. I had the best quiche of my life, and Louis made sure I had the recipe before checkout. We took advantage of all the holiday activities that were offered, from a wonderful lecture on the history of Dia de Muertos, to face painting and a cocktail party, to a fabulous tour that took us to villages, a communal meal, a private household celebration, and beautiful cemeteries. Casa Encantada is on a very safe street, two blocks from the city's small plaza, and another two blocks from the Plaza Mayor, both of which were bustling with families and couples enjoying the festivities of music, and traditional dance. So,whether your booking for this particular holiday, or anytime, I give Casa Encantada the highest marks for safety, comfort, ambiance, and a genuinely friendly and hospitable staff.

It has been my pleasure to stay at the Casa Encantada boutique hotel numerous times over the past few years. It only took one stay to convince me that I had found my home away from home in Pátzcuaro. I found a tranquil atmosphere, sincerely friendly staff, and courteous interesting guests. Usually my visits have coincided with the large folk art fairs that are held on the days around the Day of the Dead and Easter holidays. Located a half block away from the main plaza, the Casa Encantada provides the perfect venue for rolling out of bed, walking to their cozy and heated dining room, and having my coffee and breakfast. Following that I am free to stroll to the plaza and chat with the artisans of the fairs that are selling the magnificent folk art produced in Michoacán. There is no better way to get a personal and intimate exposure to both the art and the artisans of a state that is usually mentioned in the worst possible light but really has so much to offer. And there is no better way to do it than arriving a few days early, enjoying the festivities, and leaving a few days later. Over the years I have visited most of the towns around Lake Pátzcuaro, which are close enough to reach and briefly experience in a day, while having the peace of mind to know that you will be retuning to a comfortable room with amenities in a secure and relaxing atmosphere. In the past I have made two mistakes in my strategy for experiencing Pátzcuaro, the nearby lacustrian towns, and the slightly further pueblos of the Tarascan Plateau. I have always tried to experience as much as possible, in as short a time as possible, spending as little as possible. Using this ‘whirlwind tour’ mindset though was a disservice, given the potential I could have experienced. Until recently I have also never used a guide, arrogantly assuming I could read about areas and understand their history and culture. That was a tremendous error. With respect to longer stays (more than 3-4 days), the Casa Encantada now offers ‘Casitas Pátzcuaro’ that are associated dwellings a block away from the main hotel. They are extremely economical and consist of individual suites that can be rented by the week or month. A perfect alternative for those who don’t wish to live out of a suitcase and constantly pack and repack. As for understanding the culture and history of the Pátzcuaro region, I can heartily recommend guide Jaime Hernández, who can be contacted via the Casa Encantada. He is a highly educated and wonderfully knowledgeable person who has lived in Pátzcuaro for decades. He has studied and trained to be good at his profession, so you can expect to pay a professional rate. But in the highly specific tours of artisans that I have taken with him, including both the lake pueblos and the towns in the Tarascan Plateau, I have found him to be worth every cent! And I have also realized how much I have missed by not taking things slower and trying to save a few bucks by doing it entirely on my own. Better late than never!

Dear Jim, You have been a wonderful guest over the last years. How many now? 5? 6? I have loved converting you into a regular guest and helping you to see the value, not only of spending a few dollars more for your hotel by upgrading slightly. But by upgrading only a little you have realized far more for your money with the ammenties and benefits both easy to put a price on like breakfast or parking and those that are not as easy to ID such as a full staff, bilingual in some cases and happy to privide services and advice you won't find on a normal hotel situation. THANKS for your approval and appreciation. ALWAYS enjoy your visits. Sincerely, Victoria

We stayed in the apartments which are just down the street from hotel. We had coffee and breakfast in the mornings in the hotel which was lovely. All the rooms and apartments are tastefully and beautifully appointed (we happened to peek in when they were being cleaned.) The host, Victoria, has truly thought of everything to make this a comfortable and home-away-from-home stay, whether you're visiting for a week or a month. The apartments are safe, quiet and cozy. There is a sunny rooftop deck where you can see the whole city. Walking distance to everything! And when you do need a taxi or help with planning day trips, the hotel staff are helpful and attentive. We have stayed all over Mexico and other places could learn a lot from Encantada! Clean, comfortable, friendly, and a great value. Also of note are the massage and manicure/pedicure services available in the hotel.We took advantage of opportunity to have those services and were thrilled with the high quality and reasonable price.

Just returned from a delightful stay at Casa Encantada and it truly is enchanting. The service was impeccable with wonderful and unusual amenities in the room...Probably my favorite was the filled socks you could warm in your microwave and use to keep your feet warm...or to soothe achy muscles. Gracious hostess and owner Victoria makes you feel like you are visiting her in her home and manager Luis...is superb. All the staff helpful and friendly. It will be first on my list of places to stay when returning to charming Patzcuaro, looking forward to a return visit.

Dawn, Thank you so much. I appreciate that you took the time to review my hotel and I LOVE your review. Yes, the "toasty feet" is a new secret weapon against chilly sheets in cool weather. Works really well. I have it at home too. And I couldn't agree more about Luis and the staff. We all make it our business to make our guests stay the best it can be. Abrazos & Saludos, Victoria
