Dunshee's Casita
Ranked #13 of 37 Santa Fe B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Dunshee's, tucked away on a back lane near the upper end of Canyon Road, is a quintessential Santa Fe bed and breakfast. There's a quiet shaded patio and lovely garden that opens off the guest suite, roomy living quarters, comfortable and tastefully chosen furnishings--everything spic-and-span clean. Susan was most welcoming, as well as knowledgeable and informative with regards Santa Fe, itself. And her breakfasts each morning--wow! Each morning's repast was different, and each was excellent. We look forward to our next stay at Dunshee's, and highly recommend it to other visitors to Santa Fe.

Spacious, smartly decorated, comfortable... a home for yourself! Two patios, garden, living room, library, bedroom, privacy. Everything you could possibly ask for and more. And Susan prepares excellent breakfasts. Great location too.

This is one of those bed and breakfasts that defines what B&B truly means. Home away from home - even better! Susan made us feel welcome right away. She helped us discover local restaurants, galleries and activities. We truly enjoyed the great location; the property itself is nestled in one of the most beautiful areas of Santa Fe - walking distance to some great restaurants and all the galleries on Canyon Road! At the same time, it was secluded where we enjoyed peaceful moments reading and relaxing in our own private garden.The daily breakfasts were not only unique with plenty to enjoy, but Susan also provides a healthy variety - from green chile soufflé to quiche to wholegrain waffles with walnuts and homemade pear compote! It was hard to stop - we're slightly embarrassed - but can't wait to go back. You can't go wrong with this choice.

Room Tip: Even though we were hoping for the casita, we were thrilled with the suite - what a great choice! Be...

Dunshee's is the perfect place to stay when you visit Santa Fe. It is out of the way, but within walking distance of the Old Town area and Canyon Road. The guest suite is like a small house with a living room, expansive dining area and a hallway that leads to a spacious bedroom and bath. The comfortable, Santa Fe style ambiance has authentic details like timbered ceilings, tiled floors and original art.

Susan Dunshee kindly shared suggestions for restaurants and transportation. She went out of her way to be helpful and did I mention the amazing breakfasts she prepared each morning? We stayed 3 nights and every breakfast was excellent....my favorite was a soufflé, melon with mint in a ginger simple syrup, homemade muffins / toast , coffee and juice. Other mornings we had a lovely frittata and crepe like pancakes and bacon. Something for everyone !

We enjoyed the location, hospitality and comfort of this delightful B & B. I will definitely stay at Dunshee's the next time I visit Santa Fe.

I was looking for a place that was close to the heart of Santa Fe, yet provided a tranquil space for quiet recovery when the day's explorations were over. Staying at Dunshee's B&B was like having your own cottage with all the amenities you could want, a lovely garden, and attentive care from your neighbor (Susan, the owner) who was always there to assist, but discreet when you wanted privacy. Her breakfasts were superb and the company of her dogs (for me) a bonus. If you don't love dogs the way I do, they are happy to stay on their own turf. I recommend this perfectly-located B&B wholeheartedly and Susan is a knowledgeable and gracious host. When the occasion arises, I will gladly return.

My husband and I recently stayed at Dunshee's B & B in Santa Fe where we had a delightful week. A large part of the enjoyment of our trip was our accommodations. I had known about Dunchee's from the time I lived in Santa Fe, but had never experienced the pleasure of being a guest there. The room(s) were large, comfortable and beautifully decorated in Santa Fe style in a great location- right near Canyon Rd.
Perhaps the best part is Scottie herself who makes you immediately feel welcome and extends herself to make sure your stay is perfect. Breakfast is a real treat- each day a different well prepared and presented delicious meal. I can't wait to go back and can see why she has so many returning guests.

Susan Dunshee shares her own informed art scene with her grateful guests. Comfortable and convenient to all of Santa Fe, there could be no better place to absorb the city. After gallery gazing as close as a block away, guests can retreat to a peaceful tree-sheltered patio. We'll tell all our friends.
