Great escape

4.8 on June 15, 2016

A prefect time and location, close to the heart of Taos but on a quiet country road. Owner knows the area well and gave good recommendations for dinner and museums. Will definitely recommend this spot to anyone planning to visit this area.

Christmas at the Taos Country Inn

5 on December 30, 2015

The Inn was lovely, inside and out and decorated beautifully for Christmas. Every room was clean and delightful to include the living room and dining room. The Inn was easy to find and once there we had easy access to our room which was large and well-appointed and also very clean. Yolanda, the owner, made our stay special and treated us like old friends. She was delightful and funny and very helpful in recommending good restaurants and even the best slopes for skiing. Altogether it was a wonderful place to stay and we will go back again.


Outstanding B&B

Outstanding service and value. Away from the hustle and bustle but still within 5-10 minutes of anything/everything to do in Taos. We loved Taos Country Inn B&B.


Taos Country Inn B&B is excellent

5 on November 13, 2015

This is a very nice, well worth the price, off the beaten path, out of the way B&B. Having stayed at three other B&B's in Taos over the years, we have found a place we will definitely be returning to. The breakfast is excellent!


Property and room misrepresented on website

1.4 on September 02, 2015

I found this inn to be totally misrepresented. According to the website, it has beautiful views from the windows and patio. The site photographs must be very old because this inn is very old and it looks it. The linens were clean and there was the appearance of it being cleaned, but the room and bathroom are outdated and dingy. We arrived late and the door to the suite was left open with the lights on. We were not aware there was no air conditioning. We assumed for the price of the room, it would be. When we tried to open the window, we realized that the window was off the hinge and would not operate properly. The screen had a hole in it. The curtain was torn and there were tiny bugs everywhere on the sink and a large flying bug when I was in the bathroom. I did not sleep well. In the morning I looked out of the so-called patio with a great view and saw an old stone patio with grass growing up through it and a view of overgrown plants and grass. I would never have sat on that patio. This room and bathroom were old and the bedspread was faded. When we went to breakfast, there were small bugs landing on the dish of fruit with no cover at all. I ate very little of the breakfast which was just ok, not gourmet and we left. The owner did not hold us to the second night. She was not happy with us though. When my husband mentioned the bugs, all that she said was that we were in the country. I was just elated to get out of there. We stayed at a lovely lodge located int he center of town with a great big modern room, breakfast and beautiful grounds with flowers. I would never recommend the Taos Country Inn to anyone.

Wonderful, gracious hostess. B&B located in a lovely, quiet country setting. Physical condition of the room a bit "tired." Room and bath need refurbishing. Had to fix shower so head worked. Water controls in sinks and shower quite temperamental Flushing the toilet caused the person in the shower to be scalded.


Fantastic Stay!

Couldn't have ask for a better place to stay. Away from town, in the country, Unique Adobe Style, quite, restfull, great breakfast, and a delightful hostess! Can't wait to go back. Will certainly stay here again! Thank You Yolanda for a perfect vacation!


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!
