We realized that we love hospitality! This passion has been fulfilled with our purchase of Dreamcatcher B&B. Our 1940's adobe home sits nestled in a quiet, wooded area just a ten-minute walk from Historic Taos Plaza. Dreamcatcher is your perfect home base for exploring Taos and all that northern New Mexico has to offer. In Taos gain quick access to mountain trails and a skier's paradise. There are great art galleries, museums, fantastic restaurants and an abundance of unique shops. At Dreamcatcher all of our rooms feature a private exterior entrance, private bath, wood burning or gas log fireplaces, Wi-Fi, Direct TV, coffee maker, refrigerator, ceiling fan, I-pod or CD player, and comfortable robes. Our delicious breakfasts will be the perfect start for your Taos adventures. We feature cooked to order hot entrees and selections of fruit, cereals and fresh baked breads or muffins. Watch the seasons change with cool crisp Fall evenings setting the stage for our winter wonderland, with streets lined with farolitas! Come for the adventure and be captured by its charm!

This little gem hidden in the winding roads west of the famed Taos Plaza, is a quiet, cozy, clean, and relaxed place to stay. The added sparkle was a real live breakfast (with eggs, protein), gluten free choices, fruit, and yummy oatmeal brûlée created and served by the very interesting and creative owners, John and Prudy. They are like your family who wants to make sure you are warm, fed, and attended to, but unlike family they disappear so you feel the luxury of private space. The beds are super comfy, the linens high quality, and the feel is definitely Taos. I also like the small number of rooms/people so it's really quiet. Didn't hear anyone ever. Expect tiny tv, medium quality bathrooms, and smallish but cozy rooms.

We loved our stay in the Gecko Garden Casita. The setting is beautiful and the hosts Prudy and John exceptional. Breakfast was delicious and very attractively presented. Selections change on a daily basis.....A truly wonderful weekend! Irv and Kathy Buck

Stayed here in mid July. Enjoyed the innkeepers and Jake their mascot (friendly pooch). The room was inviting, the breakfasts were tasty, and the afternoon cookies kept hunger at bay. We enjoyed the closeness to Taos - we walked there each day. So convenient. Thanks for a memorable stay D.H.

Since I tend to get hot easy, the lack of an air conditioner or a swamp cooler was a mild negative for me (the ceiling fan was decent but not adequate - for us), but otherwise loved the room and our stay. Did not have breakfast there during our stay and since I was forced to give a rating, I gave a 5. But I did not eat there.

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.
