We did not want to leave!! We were looking for a quick getaway to breathe and unwind, which we received. However, we ALSO discovered Mary Jane and Fred, two genuinely fantastic people with an equally fantastic inn. Their graciousness and attention to detail has us hooked and we will definitely return for another experience! xo L & D

Thank You! You are too kind!!! It's exciting to be around guests who unwind and celebrate at Thistletop. We were all lucky to be in the crossroads of live music... so I have to admit it was awesome weekend. Live music or not, your words are music to our ears. Come back soon! We love having you as guests!!! F&MJ

Came here on recommendations of friends and are so glad we did!!! Fred and Mary Jane treat you like family - the house is amazing as it's a Braxton Dixon house! Recycle, reclaimed, repurposed and excellent design and ambience. The setting is excellent in a charming location, rooms wonderful, private and special! Highly recommended!!!! Can't wait to go back.

Thank You! Can't begin to describe how meaningful it is to know you had a special visit here. It is just a house... though a cool, unique one (here I don't want to sound cliche) but we hope it becomes a canvas for some...who bring their paints to paint their masterpiece. Love to see y'all soon! Thanks! F&MJ

We loved our stay at the Thistletop bed-and-breakfast! Mary Jane and Fred were the ultimate hostess and host! The home was beautiful… Built by the amazing builder Braxton Dixon in the 70s, the combination of wood, stone, and glass provide a beautiful ambiance, and the breakfasts were amazing :-) This beautiful spot is our favorite place to stay when we...

Thanks, Cheryl! It was a pleasure! Thanks for noticing our efforts to try to be unique. There are so many fine places on the map that are, at the end of the day, cookie-cutters. We feel like glowing at the thought we have put together a unique environment to host unique people... And... if you want to call that dreamy...I...

This is the most beautiful inn I've ever stayed at. The rooms are private, large, GORGEOUS, charming, comfortable, quiet, serene, and wonderful. Spent 2 wonderful nights there, wish it was longer. We were accommodated in every way, the inn only has a few rooms so the service is very personal. I'm an architecture snob, and scoff at "quaint" B&Bs that...

A bed and breakfast unlike any others. A MUST see. Our room, Taos was quiet and private. Ours had a door which opened onto a deck; it was private as well. Fred and Mary Jane were funny, helpful and made us feel welcome. This is a big place with many rooms in which to relax. The grounds are perfect for...

My wife Lana and I stayed at Thistletop Inn during CMA Fest in June 2016. Coincidentally it was also our 20th wedding anniversary and we were lucky enough to spend it at this beautiful accommodation.

Mary Jane and Fred are the most perfect hosts. The room was spectacular, the views beautiful and the food was amazing! Wild turkeys roamed around the grounds the entire time. We cannot wait to go back and catch up with our new friends and relax again. MUST STAY!!!
