“Gracious Hosts--Beautiful Location”

We stayed at the Desert Willow for one evening this month, and we highly recommend it as a peaceful and relaxing getwaway in Jemez Springs. The breakfast is absolutely delicious (yogurt and fresh fruit smoothie followed by blue corn waffles with fresh blueberries, stawberries and peaches, fresh whipped cream, and fresh maple syrup; homemade cinnamon cake; coffee; grapefruit juice; etc.) and is by far the best B&B breakfast I've ever enjoyed. We actually booked when there was a mix-up with our reservation at another local inn and they called the Desert Willow to see if they could help out--we couldn't have been more pleased. Leon graciously agreed to take us in at the last minute, although she wasn't planning on taking guests that day, and even woke up extra early to prepare us a full breakfast before our early start to a day of hiking. The room was cozy and the bed very comfortable, with nice linens. Our room's windows opened to the relaxing view (and sound) of the stream. Water and sodas are available all day, and truffles provided at night. We especially enjoyed sitting by the stream in the evening, surrounded by native and natural landscaping. We will definitely return to the Desert Willow when next in the area.

“Most restful, low key b and b”

It's hard to imagine how a b and b experience could be more delicious than this. I stayed twice this summer and each time the hosts were as welcoming and helpful as could be, the breakfasts out of this world, the beds/linens oh-so- luxurious, and the setting as relaxing as you could want. Could not recommend it more highly. We stayed in the main house but the cottage is sweet as well. I plan on going back at least a few times a year.

“Our favorite getaway!”

At least once a year we go to this lovely, low-key B&B to enjoy unparalleled quietude, beautiful and unusual canyon sunrises and sunsets, the babbling Jemez River and Leon's amazing breakfasts. The bedrooms are beautifully appointed with everything you would want or need, including very comfortable beds, truffles, fruit and a refrigerator with drinks. The entire place is absolutely spotless as well. The gardens are gorgeous!! Our getaways to Desert Willow are always our most peaceful and easy-going weekends, and we are never let down.

“Outstanding location,wonderful cottage, lovely scenery!”

We stayed at the Dragonfly cottage with Desert Willow Bed and Breakfast, and it was great! Fully equipped cottage- very homey, comfortable beds, great location. Jemez Springs is a wonderful little town to explore. We hope to go back sometime again, and stay at the cottage for sure! Leone is a wonderful hostess. The fireplace was so fun to have- we built as many fires as possible! Spent lots of time on the back deck enjoying the high cliffs and the sound of the stream in the background. Recommend the Laughing Lizard Cafe- it is great!
