This is an outstanding small inn. The original building is a historic Hacienda. The architecture and decor are traditional New Mexican style with tile floors, kiva fireplaces and beamed ceilings. Absolutely charming. We stayed for two nights, but wished we had had time to stay longer. It was the accommodation highlight of a two-week trip to the Southwest. Everything was superb, from the delicious breakfast in a large, open-plan kitchen/dining room, to the comfort of our spacious bedroom and bathroom (with jacuzzi tub) to the helpful advice, information and directions given by our hosts. The Hacienda is set in lovely gardens with mature trees and has a magnificent mountain view. There's a secluded outdoor hot tub. The setting and service are first class A romantic place run by friendly young people committed to satisfying their guests' every need.

Wonderful experience great views and great breakfast the only concern was that breakfast was served from 8-9 am,....when on holiday we thought that breakfast should be extended more than one hour.....suggestion: 7-10 am would be a perfect setting for a late morning. Otherwise a great location and wonderful owners that took excellent care of us.

Room Tip: Great hot tub and the breakfast was very tasty.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Breakfast has been served from 7:30-9:00 for over 20 years here so as fairly new owners, we kept the same hours. Our managers serve a hot cooked to order fresh breakfast every morning unlike some bed and breakfasts that have a buffet self service. Since we are a small bed and breakfast, they also do all the clean-up and move on to other duties all morning so it is hard to extend the hours too late. We find our skiiers are in early for breakfast and summer guests are up and off to enjoy the sights of Taos by 9:00/9:30. If anyone would like a slightly later breakfast, we are always open to making an adjustment from time to time so don't hesitate to ask us. After 9:00, there is always fruit, cereal, and coffee, etc. for those who really want to sleep in and relax. We try to be as flexible as possible but also try to maintain a schedule and finish all the morning duties..

Having stayed at the Hacienda del Sol a few times in the past three years, we booked a four-night get-a-way over Thanksgiving. The property is quiet and peaceful and the views are amazing! I was pleasantly surprised by the new bedding, which was both high quality and comfy. The breakfasts are good and I appreciate the willingness to accomodate special requests. Finally took the opportunity to dine at the nearby Love Apple this trip. It is not to be missed! We love that the Hacienda reminds us of some of the great B&Bs we have visited throughout Europe. Erica, Mark, Luellen, and Chef Gerd are not only gracious hosts, but they are truly good people who welcome you with open arms.

We had a great visit in Taos and big reason why was the Haceienda del Sol. It was truly one of the best b&b’s we have stayed at. The innkeepers were very warm and friendly, the room was great and roomy (we stayed in Mabel's Salon), as was the common living room. Also great were all of the things they had for us that made it feel like a home away from home, like the coffee/hot water, snacks, restaurant menus, robes, DVD’s, and various books to read. Oh, and then there was the jacuzzi. What a great way to really relax after a long day of shopping and sightseeing.

We are thrilled that you enjoyed our historic Mabels' Salon - in honor of previous owner and art patroness Mabel Dodge Luhan. The room was just repainted and floors refinished so it should be bright and cheerful as well as cozy and warm by the fire this winter.

Essence of Taos artistry and the mystical warmth of the Southwest envelop you and the family. You are instantly at home with the friendly and familiar inkeepers. Couples and families alike enjoy the facility without crowding or intrusion. The location, edge of the national forest preserve, is the perfect balance between out-of-town and convenience to the Taos markets and to the Pueblo. You cannot beat the view from each and every room. Among the best B&B's we have ever visited. Remember to make your own entry in the guest journals, resting in each room, awaiting the details of your unique visit to Hacienda del Sol.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are so fortunate to back up to the Pueblo Reservation lands and have these amazing views of their sacred Taos mountain. Just recently, we were given permission to cut down some of the growing brush behind us that has opened up even more incredible views of the surrounding mountains so our courtyards will be full of guests enjoying the beautiful colors and shadows during the famous New Mexico sunsets. Please come back and visit us in the summer for a different feel of the Hacienda..We appreciate your comments.

The inn is quaint and the owners are simply lovely. Very helpful in suggesting places to visit or restaurants to eat. They worked with us on our vegan diet and even purchased a kick ball for my boys who took advantage of the great backyard space. We would go back if we end up in Taos again.

Our stay at the Hacienda was wonderful with great views of the Taos Mtn in the backyard. Our room was very comfortable and cozy and was great without the distractions of a TV, phone service and all our other electronic "necessities" that we can't live without any other day. Breakfast was a grand treat with the 3 choices offered for main course. Can't wait to make it back to Taos.
Our only issue was location to the Plaza as it is not within walking distance but not all that far to drive as it only took about 5 minutes to get to downtown and Plaza area.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to have good views and relaxing atmospheres from what we could see as we walked aroun...
