Lovely experience

4.4 on August 25, 2014

We had a nice stay for one night in this beautiful B&B, the room was large, well equipped and quiet. Delicious healthy breakfast and very friendly people. Many thanks to David and Diana also for all the suggestions about the surroundings

quiet and relaxing

4.0 on July 24, 2014

If you want to escape the noise, this is the place to stay. The river is beautiful and smell of Lavender and chirpping of birds make you feel very content. David and Diana were gracious and friendly. We enjoyed talking with them over coffe and breakfast in a relaxed enviornment. We will definitely go back!

thank you!

Appreciate the amazing vacation!!! The view through the windows and the walk by the river was wonderful. The comforts from home were above expecations and much needed. Thank you!!!

A beautiful hideaway from which to explore the 4 corners

5 on October 21, 2013

So much beautiful landscape to explore in the Four Corners area and what a great place to do it from. Learned so much about the Navajo culture and history from David and Diana. They also shared with us the best locations for shopping and dining for authentic Navajo goods and meals. Loved our trip to Farmington, NM!

Innkeeper Response
In addition to meeting and visiting with our illustrious guests we enjoy sharing information about our area of the world. There is so much here in landscape, geology, archaeology, paleontology, history, National Parks, books and films about the Four Corners and colour. You have seen the current film,” The Lone Ranger”, haven’t you? Diana during the research for an Oral History Project completed some years ago came across in the local newspaper the title of a piece which read “Farmington, the Gateway to the World”. She was a bit in disbelief but both David and Diana are working to give that title some validity. Just two weeks back we had family visiting and we then were free to join them in their shopping ventures and see first hand the delight on their faces when making several purchases at Hatches Trading Post. Only David can tell you how to find Hatch’s Trading Post. Well, you might find it on your own but...

A quick but charming stay

We stayed one night at the Inn and enjoyed our lovely Southwestern adobe riverside room, the breakfast conversations with David and Diana and especially their graciousness at our late arrival(lost in the mountains without a cell signal) and helpfulness at forwarding the Ipad we left behind in our room. We wish we could have stayed longer. We'll be back.

Innkeeper Response
Graciousness begets graciousness, Thank you! It was our pleasure to be of some help at the tail end of your holiday when you got lost, night came and we were able to guide you in to the B&B INN. Mailing your ipad home to you was also something which we felt comfortable in doing knowing full well that sometimes things go astray. Happy fall!

Restful retreat

Quiet, clean, cozy retreat from busy Farmington. Delicious breakfast and friendly hosts. Would be happy to return.

Innkeeper Response
It is a heart warming message you have sent. We do enjoy so much our guests who bring the larger world to us. Blessings.

Beautiful setting - warm hosts

Outstanding - only wish we stayed another night as it was a quick visit. Surperb breakfast, right on the river (rare sight in NM). Congenial host and very good conversation.

Great place to stay!

4.4 on July 03, 2013

We stayed at the Silver River Adobe Inn one night, but it was very enjoyable. The inn is away from the main road and sits next to the river. The rooms are very charming and nicely appointed for a relaxing evening. The breakfast was delicious and the conversation from our host was very interesting and educational. We would definitely stay here again if visiting the area.

Great inn, wonderful host!

Best place to stay in Farmington! Private rooms overlooking river, light-filled dining area, excellent breakfast and great conversation.

A treat to find in Farmington

4.4 on March 25, 2013

Such lovely hosts and comfy room. Being GF and dairy free I was treated with a fabulous breakfast. I would recommend it as a little surprise venue. Just needs a little better signage. Thankfully we arrived before evening and winded our way in.

Innkeeper Response
Our B&B is hidden away isn't it, a little oasis. We are happy to guide our guests in when they telephone us as they are about to approach our driveway. We additionally offer to meet our guests should they wish so that, again, we can physically guide them to our B&B. I am most happy to prepare a gluten and diary free breakfast. My "joy" comes from being celiac myself. What have we done to the quality of our food that some food now causes illness rather than giving us nutrition and health? A new recipe book David found is: "Learning to Bake Allergen-Free: A Crash Course for Busy Parents on Baking without Wheat, Gluten, Dairy, Eggs, Soy or Nuts" by Colette Mart. I wish you continued healthy eating.

About the innkeepers

You are not likely to find a better guide for your travels within the four corners than David. He knows the routes like the back of his hand and ever so many interesting little hideaways. During breakfast ask David your questions about the plans you have for the day’s adventure. David is an avid walker, Diana prefers cycling and swimming. In the winter of 2009 Diana rode the Southern Tier across the US while David drove the SAG vehicle. Both share a passion for books.
