“Don't breeze trough Trinidad, CO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2010

On our drive home to Dallas, TX from Denver, CO my husband and I decided to breakup our drive with a stay in Trinidad, CO. We could not have been more pleased to find the Tarabino Inn. The owners have out done themselves to provide warmth and comfort in this historic Trinidad home. They have brought the original home to life with just enough touches of antique furniture and accessories while including the most comfortable beds. Another fantastic characteristic is the amount of local art available for view and purchase adorning each room's walls. But the best part is owner Teresa's hot breakfast served between 8 AM and 9 AM each morning. Make time for it. In fact make time for Trinidad so you can stay at the Tarabino Inn more than one night!

We stay at B&Bs a lot. We lived oversees for years which is basically mostly B&Bs. This one is right in the heart of Trinidad so after you park your car, you can walk everywhere. Which we did. The room we had was great which I believe was the biggest room with private (very large) bath. We had a great view from our windows. Meet wonderful people every morning over breakfast. Enjoyed the owner (woman) of the B&B will stay there again maybe this September again.

Her cookes and coffee/tea late afternoon was fun. We brought some up to our room and I would say after 30 years of marriage, we felt romantic!!!!!!!!!!

To celebrate a birthday, my 2 adult daughters and I stayed at the Tarabino Inn for a night. It is a Bed and Breakfast Inn. We arrived late and wished we could have spent more time enjoying the house, from the ceilings, woodwork and furnishings to the library and extensive artwork (for sale) from local artists. We stayed in the East and West Gables that are on the top floor with one bathroom, complete with a claw-foot bathtub! The beds were comfortable and the breakfast very good. There are even robes and slippers for those who need them. Everything is pleasant, from the wonderful smelling soap to the unique little nooks within the closets that lead to the gable windows - complete with pillows so one can sit and look out over Trinidad or snuggle up with a good book. We would definitely return for a full weekend or even longer!
The area offers the Santa Fe Trail, the Highway of Legends, art galleries, antique stores, and sculpture, all steeped in history. If you want a night life, this is not the place for you but if you like to stay in a comfortable, beautiful bed and breakfast in a small southwestern city, Tarabino Inn is just the right place.

From the moment you enter you feel relaxed and welcome.

The house is beautifully restored and full of history.
I stayed for two nights in the walnut suite, watching the sunrise over the hills was beautiful.

You really couldn't find nicer people than the owners, nothing was too much trouble and as for the home cooked breakfast..........wow.

The B&B is within easy walking distance of the main high street.
If you want to visit a town with a wonderful serene spirtual energy, Trinidad is the place to visit and the Tarabino, the perfect place to stay.

I will be back again in Trinidad next December and there is no question about where I am staying..........I am back at the Tarabino

We would recommend this b&b to family, friends, and will stay here again if we're in Trinidad, CO.
Only had the opportunity to stay here 1 night/ 1 breakfast, but this was a restful, beautiful place to stay. Our party occupied the 2nd floor, there is 1 extremely large suite and a smaller but still spacious 2nd bedroom. The very-large suite had a bathroom that you could not take a proper bath in, due to the age of the plumbing. So even though the smaller bedroom has a detached, full bath, I would recommend the smaller one, since you can take full advantage of the claw-footed tub in that one.
The hosts were relaxed and pleasant, breakfast was delicious and very filling. The cookies in the afternoon were a real treat -- the ones we enjoyed were homemade shortbread with pepper-jelly. Sounds odd, but very yummy.
Future plans include expanding a downstairs powder room into a full bathroom (with probably just a shower), so that one additional bedroom in the downstairs can be fully-functional for guests.

  • Liked — beautifully maintained home, turned into b&b
  • Disliked — view onto other nearby homes

What a wonderful place to stay. Kevin and Teresa are marvelous hosts and the breakfasts could not be any finer. Both Kevin ad Teresa take turns with creating some of the most diverse and delicioous breakfast fares. The rooms and art work are displayed in the finest Victorian settings. This is a jewel in a very scenic little town.
