Since 1989, Farmington's 1st B&B is a contemporary example of the traditional architecture of Northern New Mexico which graciously rests on a sandstone cliff 30 feet above the San Juan and La Plata rivers. This nature reserve boasts native grandmother cottonwood trees for many migrating birds.
Located on the northwest wing of the B&B with a private entrance from the covered patio for evening relaxing watching the New Mexico sunsets, perhaps even a morning coffee. This room features: king bed with ceiling fan overhead; a twin bed in a capitan’s alcove (a special hide away or reading place, children take to this bed most eagerly). All beds have reading lamps. A small closet, small refrigerator, microwave,desk complete the furnishings. A private bathroom with marble tile shower with built in seat and a block glass window for light from the east.
The Cottonwood room features a Queen sized bed, sofa chair, as well as, a private bath with marble tile shower. Windows overlooking the San Juan River and the grandmother cottonwood tree certainly enhance the delight of staying in the high desert of the southwest. The San Juan River carries 50% of the surface flowing water in New Mexico. One enters the room from a small covered patio, a delightful place to meditate or practice a bit of Yoga.

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!

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!
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...

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.
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!

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.

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.
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.

Extremely friendly and helpful hosts, very cozy room set in a beautiful landscape, very delicious breakfast.
Both David and I do hope to help our guests with their plans for each day's itinerary and to choose a restaurant. I am pleased to hear that we were indeed successful with this goal. Our river side location we cannot take much credit for but do love sharing our New Mexico landscape. Thank you.

Diana, David and David and Heidi Hamlow
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.

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.
