The Orinda is a beautifully kept adobe hacienda with very attractive, tasteful and authentic southwestern decor. It is about a 10-minute walk to the town center, but you'd never know it while you were at the Orinda. It is in a beautiful, quiet and peaceful country setting, overlooking pastures with Taos Mountain in the background. John and Kathryn, owners of the Inn, are a great asset: very friendly, accommodating and helpful. John has been a professional chef and therefore the breakfasts are outstanding and plentiful. Kathryn is a wonderful hostess. Our room was very comfortable, clean, and attractive. We wished we had been able to stay in Taos longer to spend more time just relaxing at the Orinda. We will return to Taos, in a large part due to the Orinda B & B. It will be the only place we will think of staying!
