Cimarron Rose is an out-of-the way B and B near El Morro National Monument, el Malpais, the Acoma reservation, and the Zuni reservation. The place is rustic and cozy. Our 2-bed suite has everything you could possibly need. Charming local art, comfy beds and furniture, and nice grounds. There was snow on the ground so we could not take advantage of the outdoor spaces or the property. Breakfasts were delivered at 8:30 (by special request) and were excellent and abundant. Be prepared for NO cell service and dial-up speed internet - you are practically off the grid. IMHO, skip the ice caves ($12 pp rip off) and spend your time at El Morro (free) with excellent visitor center. Also be prepared with food since a the closest grocery is half an hour in Grants, and there is literally only one restaurant in the area (The Ancient Way - Excellent!). Kind of a bummer that the tap water is not potable, but they provide gallons and gallons of clean water for cooking and drinking. This is a good base for exploring the above attractions for a few days.

We stayed at the Cimarron Suite. It was exceptionally neat and well-stocked with any item you might desire. Although it is somewhat out of the way it is located in an ideal setting. There was a delicious serving of pecan pie and a hand-delivered freshly made breakfast. We were very satisfied. The owner is very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.

We came for Shalako and the wolves expecting and preparing for an arduous adventure in a winter storm with only strangers. Finding Cimarron Rose (Bandera! Yea!) and the infinite care in all details charmed and supported us as only true friends can. We are so grateful to find a home “out in the middle of nowhere”. I can only repeat the heartfelt praise others have written here. Every detail thoughtfully and lovingly attended to. Oh yes, we love you back! PS- it’s 5 degrees! Colorful, cozy, charming and somehow tough, the qualities so appreciated in New Mexican culture. I especially valued Sheri’s deep connection to and love of the natural world. Cimarron Rose is a certified wildlife habitat, with bird feeders, water and protection surrounding the B&B and transitioning into the actual forest. We walked (in the snow) back in the trees, so serene and beautiful. Birds, birds, birds! As a green-eco-habitat property, the B&B collects non-drinking water from a rooftop catchment system, with plentiful bottled water for all drinking and cooking needs. Bandera adjoins the small Tierra Madre Gallery full of handmade objects and paintings by skilled local artists, mostly from the surrounding Native American communities of Zuni and the Navajo areas. Since there were only three guests, all attending Shalako, I had keys to the outer gates, the Gallery and Bandera so my space was totally private and secure and HUGE. My cellphone (VZW) provided all the internet I needed, so I didn’t even try wi-fi, though I saw others using tablets, etc. This region of New Mexico is considered remote and is sparsely populated. There are NO commercial establishments for about 30 miles in all directions. We brought plenty of food and toys so had no problem. Cimarron Rose is a cherished, personal statement of hospitality by its devoted creator and muse, Sheri. Every inch has her constant personal attention and care. When I lost a cherished small item in a snow drift, Sheri produced a special rake and located my treasure in minutes. She thawed out the doors to my van that had frozen shut! She shoveled the walks, brought treats, discussed the local conditions and culture, and on and on. As an older, single, female traveler I often must work around an industry primarily serving couples and families…and pay more. Didn’t matter here, we got individual attention and help when we needed it, then privacy and thoughtfulness the rest of the time. Some folks might prefer corporate blandness. You can drive back to the interstate and get all the mediocre (or worse) boxes you like. Visiting Zuni in winter is not easy, Shalako is legendary for its sacred blessings and trying physical conditions. When we got back after standing outside all night in the snow, ice and mud, breakfast was waiting and a quiet, snug enormous suite for a sleep-in day to recover. We even stayed an extra day to be able to visit the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary (closed Mondays). The “we” here is myself, 70 years old, and canine companion, Stella. We will definitely be back! Thanks!

We stayed in the Bandera Suite for three nights and found the kitchen to be well stocked, the bed comfortable, and the whole place well looked after. We were surprised that the water was not potable and had to use their jugs of water for meal preparation and brushing our teeth. I would not choose the Bandera Suite as the room is adjacent to the store so you go through the store to your room. When the store is unattended, you wonder who is responsible for an item that might be stolen. That problem came to our attention when a youngster wanted to get into the store when no one was there. We did not opt for breakfast as that is served at 9 a.m., and we were wanting to get an earlier start for our hike. We were expecting to use the internet, however, connectivity had slowed before we arrived so the internet was not useful. We were told it was to be fixed. Each afternoon Sheri brought a treat for guests which was wonderful although I liked her homemade treats vs the commercially made candies and cookies. Prior to our trip, Sheri was very helpful and mailed us some information about the two national monuments we planned on visiting. Although Sheri's service was great overall, I found her handling of a situation that came up to be less than adequate. It is evident the owners work hard to keep the place up. This is a pretty good place to stay if you are wanting to explore El Malpais and El Morrow.

Response from tomrkennedy, Owner at Cimarron Rose B&B
Responded Dec 10, 2018
Joan, I thank you for taking the time to write your 4 star review of your stay over the recent Thanksgiving Holiday. It is important to receive feedback, however, through several of your statements, I feel that it is important for me to provide some clarity. I was shocked by your “surprise” that we graciously provide gallons of potable water for your health and enjoyment as we openly advertise being a Green Inn (refer to our website) with a large part of our commitment to the environment being our extensive water collection system off of our 3,000 sq. ft. roof. Even though we filter and treat this water for safe utilitarian use, it is not meant for drinking. You being obvious advocates of the National Parks, your response to this is a bit confounding. Regarding our quality boutique gallery of local art ~ I always let our guests know upon check-in that it is our Common Room and Art Gallery and everyone has a key to enter at anytime. It is disheartening that you feared one of our guests might be "stealing" as you obviously recalled that I’d stated that the cabinets are not locked as I have a wonderful clientele. If fact, I have several return guests that prefer the Bandera Suite as it allows convenient shopping immediately outside of their private suite at anytime ~ even midnight! And it honestly hurts me that you felt that my “Thank You” email sent after your departure was less than adequate. Sincerely - Sheri McWethy Kennedy

This is a quiet and private place. It is out of the way for most travelers but I am glad we made the detour. We stayed in the Cimarron Suite. It was reasonable priced when compared to other properties available. Very warm and cozy with rustic furnishings. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking and eating utensils. We used the microwave but a gas stove was available. Very pleasant wood stove took the chill off a November evening. Views are of the forested land with lots of wildlife visitors. Sheri provided a fantastic breakfast with foods for special dietary needs. It was much appreciated and not expected!
