Fourteen years ago we were the first guests to visit Cimarron Rose. In May, we again stayed in the Bandera Suite to celebrate a milestone anniversary. We were delighted to discover that Sheri, our original host/owner was still there, as was her horse, Cimarron. If possible, Cimarron Rose is even more lovely than before. Now there's a gallery of local art, larger patios, beautiful gardens that attract butterflies and birds, and charming decor and art in all rooms. The bed was comfy, the breakfast delicious and the high desert solitude at this Zuni Mountain retreat unmatched. We hated to leave. It's wonderful to return to a B&B you loved and find that, like great wine, it's only improved with age.
