This guest house is located at the foot of one of the most significant petroglyph locations in the area. The accommodations are simple and satisfactory. The breakfast good and filling. The innkeeper knowledgeable, direct and somewhat intrusive.

We were in Albuquerque during a bitter cold spell. The home was kept quite cold and we slept in several layers of clothes so as not to have to trouble the status quo.
It was like staying with a family member. One whom you enjoyed visiting and discussing things with, but one you could never escape once inside the house.

The petroglyphs were magical. Carol mentioned that they "reveal" themselves to you and she was so right.

That said, I would go back if the conditions were right. It would have to be warmer and I would have to be without my spouse. The conditions were unsatisfactory for someone who needs it warm.

Seldom is heard a discouraging word...a small B & B isn't to everyone's taste..and if guests don't alert the owner to heat/cold or other issues, they can't be remedied. We welcome constructive input, especially while you're still here and can fix it right away.

So you have a house with three bedrooms - so you "create" a Bed and Breakfast without any modifications to the house. Carol was nice and the location was right next to Petroglyphs National Monument, BUT this was like staying with an elderly aunt.

The bed was a standard, too small for a couple, the sheets were cheap and scratchy, and the bathroom was not in the bedroom.

The breakfast was only OK with really cheap and bad coffee.

This is Bed and Breakfast hell.................

There are no hotels, motels, campgrounds or other B&B's adjacent to the petroglyphs, so the only lodging is this home. Before you inquire or book here, be sure to read the web site and reviews. The site indicates what breakfast options are, that there is a queen bed and the bath is adjoining.
Elderly--not. The vast majority of guests enjoy the accommodations; the setting; the breakfast and the host. But, you can't please all the people, all the time.

Carol was a wonderful host, very knowledgeable of the area, especially the petroglyphs, really made us feel at home. the breakfast omelets were a thing to behold, such a scrumptuous way to start the day off, especially when topped with local Albuquerque salsa.
