First Timers at any B&B

4.0 on May 08, 2016

My husband Marco and I spent our first time at any B&B at the Silver River Adobe Inn and it was incredible! The room was great, the views were beautiful and the owners extremely friendly and full of concern for our comfort. David had so much valuable information to share regarding sites to see and best routes to get there. Diana cooked a delicious breakfast dish that started our day of sightseeing off just right! There is so much to see in their corner of the world I am sure we will be back many times. Thanks so very much! - Anna & Marco Pantoja


great stay

4.4 on October 02, 2015

We really enjoyed our stay and the innkeepers were great ! they let us check in early and were so well read and wonderful hosts. All the little details were met in our room with all organic and natural products. Great locale on the riverbank.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for mentioning the organic soaps, shampoos and conditioners. Both David and I do like the occasional reading time :), so many books so little time. There are many great books about our area to share with our guests including Tony Hillerman and Anne Hillerman, Greg Childs, N. Scott Momaday and Leslie Marmon Silko to name a few. I am now reading "All the Light You We Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr which deserves the Pulitzer. Magic all!


Unique and Charming

The owners obviously care about their building, the land and their guests. The rooms are made of repurposed wood, and the construction is distinctive without being eccentric. Very pleasing.


Oasis in Farmington

4.6 on August 03, 2015

For anyone who has traveled the highway across Farmington, it can begin to look pretty bleak. We came all the way across town from the east, finally turning into the driveway for the Silver River Adobe Inn. Big sigh. . . our room was rustically elegant with a view out to the river. It was quiet at night and very relaxing. Breakfast was fine. We loved the animals at the house - a very friendly dog and cat - too bad that we didn't get to meet the other kitties.


Perfect retreat

4.8 on September 13, 2014

We spent one day in August and scheduled massages as well. The innkeepers were gracious and informative, making great dinner and travel recommendations. The massages were perfect after a long day on the road. A vegan breakfast was available and it was wonderful. The property is secluded and relaxing. Would definitely stay her again.


Lovely experience

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

Innkeeper Response
Both David and I delight in sharing information about our area with our guests hoping that we are able to help them make the hard choices of what places to visit in their too short time here. So much to see so little time. Best, Diana and David


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!

Innkeeper Response
The birds are more visible and their songs more noticeable now in mid September, if such is possible, for each time we are at the entrance where our collection of sunflowers are the birds are flocking to enjoy eating. This must make them sing their gratitude as well. Thank you! We look forward to your return.


thank you!

Innkeeper Response

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...

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.

Javanese Dutch Baby
Made from a simple mixture of eggs, flour and milk, much like a souffle. This pastry has been an all time favorite especially with our banana, lime, cardamom sauce. We serve organic juices as well as a choice of organic coffee or teas.
