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.

Prudy and John were absolutely wonderful hosts. I was on a business trip but enjoyed Taos through the recommendations of Prudy and John. When I return to Taos, I will definitely stat at the Dreamcatcher!

thanks to Prudy and John for making our stay in Taos so pleasant, from feeding us tasty breakfasts to suggesting good restaurants (including the sports bar where we could see the final four game).

John and Prudence Abeln
After years of traveling the world for work and pleasure, John and Prudence chose Taos for their perfect location for their bed and breakfast business. John thought 30 years of corporate life was enough. Prudence decided she'd use her gift of hospitality to serve guests in her own home. Many of the same skills she had used helping clients in the mortgage business would transfer to running their own business. Both John and Prudence are active participants in the community as well.
