Check Dates


The Spy House B&B is known for where the infamous David and Ruth Greenglass once lived and sold secret ATOMIC BOMB drawings to a Soviet Spy - Harry Gold. The 1907 Heritage House B&B is a beautifully-restored 100-year-old Victorian home. Both are located next door to each other in Downtown Albuquerque. It’s only 3 miles from the Airport and within walking distance of University of New Mexico (UNM), many great Downtown restaurants, the Convention Center, and several Hospitals. Every room is elegantly decorated and full of wonderful heirloom antiques. You also have full access to the beautiful backyard with lush grass, fountain with stream and a shady arbor made from 100 year old barn wood. “May any evening not end, but just begin when you come and stay with us.”

We loved it!

We absolutely loved our nights stay. Steve is such a great host and cook. He even took our picture for us. Our first trip to Albuquerque was amazing. We are definitely staying here again!

Nice stay at Spy House

4.0 on April 01, 2015

Two couples stayed at Spy House for one night before flying out the next day to go home. The rooms were as expected for a historic house - decorated in the style of that period, clean, comfortable mattresses. The Gold Room was a little musty smelling initially but that lasted maybe 20 min after opening up the room and window. Interesting to read the history of what went on. The kitchen in Spy House was stocked with beverages and cookies that we sampled when we arrived late afternoon and the breakfast was great- fresh fruit, cooked eggs, bacon, and french toast w/ syrup. Served promptly at 8:30am. Met the owner, this felt more like a business chat than a B&B experience if you are looking for a long chat, but that was fine for us fora 1 night stay. would recommend. Price was reasonable $139/rm plus tax for the full breakfast included.

Better than all others

I have been to several B&Bs in the state of New Mexico and other states. Even though the Downtown Historic B&B is in the city I live, it is the best B&B stay ever. The history of the home adds so much to the stay but Steve and Kara have maintained that history with furnishings and decor to give proper respect to that history. Steve and Kara were awesome hosts that created a unique experience to a B&B by combining the murder dinner theater. I live here and I want to go again and stay longer.

Wonderful Wedding Weekend

5 on March 25, 2015

This bed and breakfast is wonderful. Centrally located between Nob Hill and downtown Albuquerque, it's close to pretty much everywhere you want to be in the city. The hosts are wonderful people and the accommodations are fantastic. We stayed in the Cabinet House, a little 1-bedroom house that had a full kitchen and bathroom. We had 4 people in our group, and all fit comfortably with a pull-out couch/bed and a king-size bed in the bedroom. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, maybe the best omelette I've ever had. And the grounds were very charming and provided the perfect setting for our friend's wedding ceremony and reception. If you're looking to stay in Albuquerque in style and comfort for a ver reasonable price, stay at the Downtown Historic B&B. You will not be disappointed!

Murder Mystery at the Spy House

We were very pleased with the abq bed and breakfast. we had never done a bed and breakfast before and were delighted at how things went. We enjoyed our stay and will recommend this place to friends. Anthony DeVontenno

The breakfasts were absolutely amazing! We routinely stay at B&Bs and our time here was amazing. The location of this place is conveniently close to the Amtrack station (about 1/2 mile) and we thoroughly enjoyed walking around town enjoying the sights and shopping in the area.

Wonderful Stay

My husband and I had a wonderful evening at the Murder Mystery dinner. The Grants went above and beyond to make our stay a pleasant one. We shall be returning.

Pansy room

4.8 on February 04, 2015

We stayed in the Pansy room for one night in January. Steve was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was great. The house was lovely and close to great dining. It was a wonderful night. So much better than staying in a chain hotel and very reasonable. We will stay there again

Anniversary delight

4.0 on January 25, 2015

We stayed one night in the Spy House and it was wonderful! The room was delightful and the breakfast the following morning was better than the dinner we'd had the night before (I won't say where)! We were made to feel extremely welcome and would definitely stay here again. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a special place to stay.

Cabinet House is a Gem

5 on December 22, 2014

We stayed three nights in the Cabinet House in early December, and we would definitely stay there again. With the Cabinet House, you have privacy and comfort. Upon entering the front door, you step into the main room that includes a comfy couch from which to watch TV and small dining area. The bedroom is very cozy, with an extremely comfortable king bed, the small but well appointed kitchen has a coffee maker and a good supply of fresh ground coffee, and the bathroom was very clean and had good toiletries available. Breakfast in the main house was delicious! Even though the B&B is located within a short walk to many good restaurants, be sure you enjoy the inn's culinary delights at breakfast, and get to chat with Steve and Kara. They're very attentive innkeepers and have done a great job reviving these buildings. Thank you for making our visit special.
