“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

We took our first "road trip" from Minnesota and had never been to New Mexico. Staying at Dunshee's in Santa Fe was a delightful experience! Very cozy, homey, and Susan was so helpful with information on where to go and what to see. Her breakfasts were delicious and a great way to start the day exploring the area. The location was perfect, within walking distance of the Plaza with museums, shops, and great restaurants. We'll be back!

Susan Dunshee's B&B is a beautiful vintage Santa Fe adobe within walking distance of the main "arts" road, Canyon Road and also close to the Plaza. I stayed in the one bedroom suite which was enormous and beautifully furnished in lovely antiques and art. There are two fireplaces, a comfortable tiled bathroom, a large bedroom with sitting area, large living room with two sofas (one a sofa bed), and an eating area with a table that can seat 10-12. The two outside sitting areas/gardens are quiet and lovely. Susan, the owner, is a terrific cook - her breakfasts are healthy, filling and a different delight each day - and lively conversationalist. Every day began with nourishment for tummy and mind. It's so nice to have a thoughtful, local individual on hand to steer one in the right direction - whatever direction that may be.

Room Tip: The one bedroom suite has a large bedroom with queen bed and sitting area. The huge living room has...

For our first trip to Santa Fe we wanted to be able to talk to a person that knew the area. Susan was great! Our day trip to Tent Rocks would not have happened without her recommendation. It was very special. The breakfasts were another treat (very different for each of the 5 days). Gourmet food that was also healthy. The lodging is spacious. Many shops and the downtown are within walking distance. Her recommendation to go to the Museum of Indian Art and Culture first proved to be good advise.

We had a great stay, and the Owner, Susan, was really helpful and accommodating. We got lots of lovely 'extras' that we weren't expecting and that you don't get in most places. The breakfast was superb, and plenty of it! The casita is in a lovely location, right by Canyon Road and within walking distance of places to go for a drink or food if you don't want to drive. It is spacious and had plenty of room for us. It was really nice to be able to stay in and cook and have a place for someone to stay with the baby. A last minute booking worked out much better than we could have hoped for and we had a wonderful stay. I would definitely recommend it - for the location, the personal touches (lovely flowers, assistance, welcome, breakfast, daily housekeeping) and the service.

Susan was a sweetheart and made sure we felt at home by giving us a warm welcome and stocking our fridge with fresh fruits, homemade goodies and refreshing drinks. The place was situated next to Canyon Dr, home to a street of fancy galleries. We walked into town and it takes about 25 min. It is an easy and nice walk, but sidewalks are somewhat limited so if you walk on Canyon Dr there is more sidewalk/company ambling on the streets. We recommend going to the Tea House around the corner to get delicious Metropolis coffee from Chicago- they seem understaffed/slow but not in a rude way, but the ambiance is nice and food decent. We recommend Susan's place to people who want a peaceful getaway and don't mind not being directly in the downtown plaza. The kiva fireplace was a bonus and the seating is comfortable. The heater was a bit noisy but you get used to it. The beds were comfortable enough, pillows fine if you used the right combo, and she supplied us with all the toiletries we needed. We would stay again as she was very thoughtful and kind. Thanks Susan!

Very quiet location with lots of room in the suite and close to Canyon Road which is filled with galleries and some good restaurants. Susan was an excellent hostess who made amazing breakfasts every morning and was very helpful with trip planning.

This was our first visit to Dunshee's. We had been to Santa Fe several times before and were really tired of the usual down town scene. We decided too try a B&B for a change and we were so pleased and so happy we made that decision. We loved the location which was walking distance to Canyon Road. It felt very special to be up in the area of the winding roads and old houses. Susan was wonderful and the gourmet breakfast were a great way to start the day. We also loved Susan's dogs. They are amazing and came to greet us while we were at breakfast every day. The bedroom was cozy and we really enjoyed the fireplace in the evening. We hope to go back.
