This little gem hidden in the winding roads west of the famed Taos Plaza, is a quiet, cozy, clean, and relaxed place to stay. The added sparkle was a real live breakfast (with eggs, protein), gluten free choices, fruit, and yummy oatmeal brûlée created and served by the very interesting and creative owners, John and Prudy. They are like your family who wants to make sure you are warm, fed, and attended to, but unlike family they disappear so you feel the luxury of private space. The beds are super comfy, the linens high quality, and the feel is definitely Taos. I also like the small number of rooms/people so it's really quiet. Didn't hear anyone ever. Expect tiny tv, medium quality bathrooms, and smallish but cozy rooms.
Great setting and location near Arroyo Seco. Usually you have to compromise on quality when seeking a dog friendly place, but not this time. Breakfasts were great. Friendly staff. Nice room. Also a nice thing for non-dog people is that pets are not roaming inside the main residence, but allowed in your room, or on leash with you outside. Great week we really enjoyed our stay.
We loved our stay in the Gecko Garden Casita. The setting is beautiful and the hosts Prudy and John exceptional. Breakfast was delicious and very attractively presented. Selections change on a daily basis.....A truly wonderful weekend! Irv and Kathy Buck
Stayed here in mid July. Enjoyed the innkeepers and Jake their mascot (friendly pooch). The room was inviting, the breakfasts were tasty, and the afternoon cookies kept hunger at bay. We enjoyed the closeness to Taos - we walked there each day. So convenient. Thanks for a memorable stay D.H.
Since I tend to get hot easy, the lack of an air conditioner or a swamp cooler was a mild negative for me (the ceiling fan was decent but not adequate - for us), but otherwise loved the room and our stay. Did not have breakfast there during our stay and since I was forced to give a rating, I gave a 5. But I did not eat there.
Quiet and close to the central Taos plaza, the Dreamcatcher offers both rural charm and city amenities. We enjoyed the easy walks to town and convenience to attractions. Prudie and John are well versed in local and regional attractions and provide good advise. Breakfasts are delicious and start the day off fine with amiable conversation among other guests. Homemade cookies are available for late-night snack raids. The Gecko room was more than enough space to spread out and rest comfortably at the end of a long day of two artists painting and sightseeing.
Judy provided our group with a lovely and comfortable home base for four nights as we explored the beauty of New Mexico from Santa Fe to the Colorado border. We enjoyed the comfortable and beautifully decorated rooms, deliciously sumptuous breakfasts, the charming patio and gathering areas, great views and easy access to wherever we wanted to go. Judy's welcoming personality made us feel at ease, and her knowledge about restaurants, shopping and sights in the area was a bonus! Would definitely stay there again!
We enjoyed two fine stays at Adobe and Stars, and appreciated the hospitality of the innkeeper a great deal. Besides the wonderful breakfasts, and the extra treats throughout the late afternoon and evening, the warm, comfortable rooms with a fire to lay in the evenings; in addition to fine meals in the area--Sabroso became like a second home--as well as all there is to see and do in the area, there is Judy Salathiel herself, who blends professionalism and a real concern for her guests' welfare. She was especially accommodating to two families--ours included--with special needs; I can't say enough good, except to hope to get back there soon!
We had a wonderful mini vacation at the Dreamcatcher 2 weeks ago. We needed a break from the stress of real life and we experienced the perfect getaway. We arrived from ABQ on a rainy Friday afternoon and we immediately took a nap on the very comfortable bed in the Kachina room. We took a lovely stroll in the garden when we returned from dinner the first night. The room was cozy and romantic with the candles lit in the fireplace. We loved that we could play our music on the ipod port on the clock radio. Breakfast was delicious and our hosts and the other guest were all so friendly. We will definetly be back sometime and will reccomend Dreamcatcher to friends and family. We came home refreshed and with lovely memories of our stay.
My husband and I spent our anniversary in the Adobe and the Los Amantes. Air did not circulate well in the Adobe and we were very warm at night. We kept the windows open and used a floor fan; a ceiling fan would have been nice. I thought the Adobe had a private patio, but the fence is only a couple feet high in the front, which made me a bit uncomfortable leaving the shades open enough to circulate the air. The Los Amantes is larger and comfortable without a fan. Both rooms had clean bedding and the mattresses are firm, but not hard; comfortable. The Los Amantes does not have the large black Jacuzzi pictured on the web site. It has a smaller double white Jacuzzi up against the wall, which allowed for a nice double chair in the corner; perfect for cuddling! Candles are in the room. The area between the Jacuzzi and the sink and toilet doesn't have a door, but they do have a privacy screen that can be moved over. There are no T.V.'s in the rooms, but there is a CD player and they provide a few CDs. There is an outside hot tub with a sign-up sheet for private use. It was no problem to reserve a time slot and very enjoyable. Service was OUTSTANDING! Erika and Mark are spectacular! They were friendly, interesting and informative, but not pushy or invasive. Mark's breakfast is definitely worth waking up for!
This was our first time staying at Dreamcatcher. Purdy and John were great hosts and the B&B was a nice walk to the plaza. Breakfast was great. We were a little disappointed that the kiva fireplace was not in use in our room. I guess maybe it was because it was summer? I had picked the room based on having the kiva fireplace.
Two weeks ago, I spent 3 wonderful nights at the Dreamcatcher B&B. It was a great experience. John, Prudy and Jake their cute little dog, were great hosts. I was extremely impressed with their warm hospitality, great food, cleanliness of their B&B and just all around excellent service. It was my first trip to Taos, and thanks to them it won't be my last. I highly recommend the Dreamcatcher to anyone who visits Taos and wants to make their visit a beautiful experience.
This was such a sweet experience. The hosts are totally delightful - sharing many helpful details. We have our own vacation rental and learned a lot from them how to improve our place. Breakfast was perfect - including a brulee on the oatmeal. We left our hats in the room by mistake and Prudy went out of her way to return them to us. We can't wait to go back!
Hacienda Del Sol is a wonderful place to relax and rest. We stayed here for our anniversary and loved it. We were treated like family and will return as soon as the opportunity arises. Gerd and Luellen were the perfect hosts and we will recommend Hacienda Del Sol to all of our traveling friends and family. Don't miss this magical place when visiting Taos!
This was the highlight of our multi-week trek through the SW US. It's very rare for an inveterate and somewhat jaded world traveler to come across a gem like this and it reconfirmed my belief that with the right property owners/managers it can still be done. Kudos to John and Prudy.
Great location . . . easy to get to town and the ski hill, but north of town and quiet. The views are beautiful. The rooms are spacious. Judy is a great resource for restaurant info. And the breakfast is AMAZING!
My adult son and I booked the suite and it was perfect for us. We had a shared bath but separate entrances, each into a very pretty garden. And my room had a kachina ireplace that was warming on a cool night. The breakfast was OUTSTANDING! and I bought a small pottery oil lamp there that was a big hit as a gift. Highly recommended.
Did a quick over night. Friendly and perfect. Very quiet and clean. Our Orion room was perfect. Judy was the perfect host. Great tips on a late diner and drink place nearby. The morning breakfast was unique and very good. Judy even helped me set up a tray to take breakfast to the room for my girlfriend to enjoy. The location is perfect for Taos ski valley and not very far from a small town as well as Tao's.
We were in charge of finding the perfect accomodations for my husband and myself and for another couple who trusted us to make the right decision! All four of us were delighed with our rooms, the hosts, the breakfasts and sweet Jake the official B&B dog. All of our dinner recommendations and reservations were taken care of by John and Prudence. We were so delighted with our stay and we will be back.
The name Dream Catcher is quite apt. The Garden area between the various guest locations is peaceful, restful, and lovely to the eyes. We were there in the fall when almost all the leaves were down, and it was still a delight. Our Fetish Bear room felt included in the "gathering" and yet enough away from everyone else, that our stay seemed almost private. Excellent host and hostess! Eager to help with any plans we made for the day or for further traveling. Delicious breakfasts! Extremely Lovely!
I found the Dreamcatcher B&B to be a truly lovely spot and the innkeepers went out of their way to make sure we had a great experience as their guests. Whatever you do - don't miss breakfast!!! John is a culinary wizard.
We could not have had more fun or have been more comfortable. All of our rooms were beautiful, warm and well equipped for the traveler! The common areas...the main house and the garden yard served us well for our large group time. Prudence and John made sure we got out to see and experience the dinning and activities in Taos. Many of the women especially enjoyed their hot air balloon rides! Dining, shopping and visiting art galleries filled or delightful time together. I highly recommend a stay at Dreamcatcher B&B
