We enjoyed everything about the Dreamcatcher - friendly innkeepers, delicious breakfast, quiet location, reasonable rates. Will stay there again when back in Taos.

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).

We had a wonderful mini vacation at the Dreamcatcher 2 weeks ago. We needed a break from the stress of real life and we experienced the perfect getaway. We arrived from ABQ on a rainy Friday afternoon and we immediately took a nap on the very comfortable bed in the Kachina room. We took a lovely stroll in the garden when we returned from dinner the first night. The room was cozy and romantic with the candles lit in the fireplace. We loved that we could play our music on the ipod port on the clock radio. Breakfast was delicious and our hosts and the other guest were all so friendly. We will definetly be back sometime and will reccomend Dreamcatcher to friends and family. We came home refreshed and with lovely memories of our stay.
So glad you enjoyed your time in Taos and at the Dreamcatcher B&B! The peaceful setting often draws your same response of how quiet and restful our setting is. We try to stay up to date with our amenities in the room, so we are glad you enjoyed the ipod port. Looking forward to your next visit!

This was our first time staying at Dreamcatcher. Purdy and John were great hosts and the B&B was a nice walk to the plaza. Breakfast was great. We were a little disappointed that the kiva fireplace was not in use in our room. I guess maybe it was because it was summer? I had picked the room based on having the kiva fireplace.
We are sorry you were disappointed that the kiva fireplace was not in use during your stay. We usually supply wood daily for the fire during the months of October-early May, at which time we switch to candles for a romantic atmosphere. Although it cools down at night for sleeping, Taos can have some hot days during the summer, so most of our guests do not want to light a fire in their rooms. Next time you visit, just let us know and we'd be happy to provide wood, if the temperature seems appropriate, because we certainly want you to have the experience you were expecting during your stay at the Dreamcatcher B&B. Glad you enjoyed our breakfast, and we look forward to seeing you next time you are in Taos.

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.
