This is the place to stay

5 on October 25, 2014

We had a lovely visit -- room was wonderful, nice sitting area outside the room, beautiful scenery, and good breakfasts. Yolanda is friendly, professional, and caring. She wants to make your visit the best it can be. She's also lived in Taos for decades and knows all the ins and outs. We will definitely return.


Taos' Best kept secret

4.8 on September 30, 2014

We spent our 30th wedding anniversary at the Taos Country Inn and couldn't be more pleased. Yolanda is wonderful and so is the inn. A little hard to find but well worth the effort. Minutes from the plaza but on the edge of town so it is quiet and wonderful. We will be back!


Idyllic B&B

5 on August 21, 2014

My husband has never been particularly enthusiastic about staying at a b&b. However, once he saw the Taos Country Inn website, he readily agreed to my making a reservation. We weren't disappointed - our room was spacious, comfortable and pristine. Housekeeping was completely unobtrusive and our room was spotlessly kept. The breakfast was plentiful, varied and delicious. However, the very best thing about the TCI is Yolanda. There are many other reviews posted earlier than this one that extoll this exceptional woman. The authors do not exaggerate - Taos Country Inn is beautiful but Yolanda makes it extraordinary. If you're really looking for peace, solitude and wish to restore yourself, this is the place.


Aptly named inn

3.4 on July 17, 2014

Located quite a ways out of town (had to drive everywhere). Innkeeper Yolanda was very helpful in local recommendations, Restaurants, sightseeing, museums, etc. Nice choice if you want a peaceful, rural setting, but definitely far removed from the action.


Great B&B!

4.6 on May 26, 2014

This was our first time in Taos. We really appreciated all the help we got about places to see, things to do, restaurants to try. Definitely recommended!


Spacious, quiet and delicious

Great place to stay with a country feel but close to town. Excellent breakfast and very helpful host.


Country B&B on the edge of Town

3.6 on November 01, 2013

My husband & I spent four nights at the Taos Country Inn. Our Host Yolanda made our stay exceptionally nice. She treats all her guest as friends. Our suite was wonderful. I chose a room with the 8 ft. vanity which was outside of the bathroom with shower over tub & toilet. We had patio doors overlooking the orchard. Wonderful down comforter on the bed and the ceiling was so beautiful. The breakfast bar had a nice fruit, cheese & cereal selection and then every morning we had an additional hot entree. Definitely would go back again if in Taos.

We had a very nice stay. Recommend it highly.


Everything Was Perfect!

5 on October 16, 2013

This place was a dream come true! Gorgeous setting, comfortable rooms, delicious breakfast, tasty well-water, firm beds, roomy shower with high nozzle and hot water, gracious & helpful owner Yolanda and a huge communal sitting area in front of a fire. Not to be missed!


Quiet Country Inn

3.8 on October 10, 2013

This secluded spot on the west side of Taos is very rural and peaceful. Tip: download map and instructions from inn website and follow carefully. The common area is light filled with large open space and fireplace, conducive to meeting other guests. Yolanda is a very attentive innkeeper and immediately gave us restaurant menus with suggestions as to where to go and what to see in Taos. Breakfast was good with fresh fruit and hot fritatta one morning and waffles the next. The room was very large and comfortable, but could use a bit of sprucing up. Tiles in bath were loose and cracks in grout, but basically clean. I would probably book there again if I went to Taos. Somewhat pricey, but I don't know how it compares with other inns in Taos.
