Casa Escondida offers our guests the best of both worlds....a secluded, country setting that also happens to afford effortless access into historic Santa Fe, picturesque Taos and much more! Due to our central location, you will only need to unpack your luggage once during your entire visit to northern New Mexico. We are nestled on six acres with mountain views. We offer 8 intimate and comfortable guest rooms (all with private baths & cozy robes). Four of our eight rooms are pet friendly. You will find that all of our rooms are filled with antiques and accented in a rustic southwest style. Some rooms offer fireplaces, private decks or patios, kitchenette or wood stove. Casa Escondida is somewhat akin to a southwestern country inn. Our completely TV-free environment enhances the serenity of your stay. After a day of sight-seeing, enjoy a soak in our outdoor hot tub. A full, hot breakfast is served each morning in our sunny breakfast room.Visit our website for map and directions!

A little bit of heaven.

4.8 on June 09, 2013

We spent two peaceful nights here in between visits in Denver and Albuquerque. What a beautiful secluded, peaceful place this is! The rooms and main house are thoughtfully decorated with Southwest flair, and the grounds offer sitting areas to relax and watch many colorful birds at the feeders. Breakfasts were ample and the kitchen was open to guests for snacks and beverages any time of day. The innkeeper was very gracious and knowledgeable about the area. A wonderful B&B!

Fantastic setting

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Escondida. Delicious food, wonderful hot tub, and sweet heart of a kitty to hang out with you. Absolutely amazing deal! We'll definitely be going back.

My husband and I totally enjoyed our stay at Casa Escondida. It is tucked away from noise and confusion but centrally located for many wonderful adventures to Santa Fe, Bandelier, the Valles Caldera, and Taos. Chimayo itself is lovely. The B & B is clean and tasteful, the innkeeper is thoughtful and knowledgeable, the cat is friendly, and the amenities are numerous (great breakfasts, cookies, free internet, many artist and weaver studios nearby). There are also numerous nice restaurants in the area. It was a very nice place to relax.

This is the second time I have stayed at this lovely B&B! We stayed in 'Heart of the House' which was lovely, well decorated very pleasant to be in, it was very large just like the room I stayed in last time which was upstairs. We had a door to the back patio which was a very nice private detail. Breakfast is simple but very good. When we shared a table with another couple and the Innkeeper felt maybe we needed more food she added a dish of scrambled eggs. It was very thoughtful. The Innkeeper was responsive and very knowledgeable about things to do and see without any hesitation or wondering. She knew the current events and fairs going on as well as historical details we shouldn't miss. She even lent us a book from her library for our drive out to Chaco Canyon. I'm not keen on the area as it feels a little edgy to me, but this is a little treasure in the middle that I would surely visit again and recommend to others.

a hidden treasure in Northern New Mexico

5 on October 08, 2012

we had a rough day with a wrong turn causing us a major delay in reaching Chimayo, arriving well after dark. Escondida means hidden in English and after meeting quite a few of the neighborhood dog population as we drove up people's driveways we found the inn. From there the charm of the inn, the beautiful room and meeting two of the nicest people (also guests) we were captivated. Breakfast was terrific and the host and staff wonderful. We really treasured the two days we called Chimayo our home.

Another restful stay at the Casa Escondida

I always include a stay at the Casa Escondida B&B when I visit New Mexico. The host Belinda and staff provide a warm welcome. Breakfast is always excellent. And the location is off the main road so it is quiet for those light sleepers like me. I rate this B&B one of the best in the US.

Amazing Southwest Charm

My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay at this comfortable B&B outside of Santa Fe. Though a little off the beaten path, it really wasn't too hard to find. The two breakfasts we enjoyed were both wonderful, and the staff was warm and genial. The housecat they keep was friendly, if occasionally loud at night, and did a lot to keep the atmosphere homey. We are definitely considering a return trip in the near future!

Great Place to Stay!

This is the second time we've stayed at Casa Escondida, and absolutely love it. It has a great location, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We will continue to stay here on trips to North Central New Mexico.

We just spent a weekend in with a bunch of biker friends, adults and kids. Casa Escondida did everyhting they could to make our stay and wonderful experience. Owner and Staff were friendly, helpful, and ready to please. The rooms, the service, the amenities were outstanding. Reasonably priced, we will return for another relaxing stay sometime in the future. Josh and Gary were outstanding ambassadors early in our visit....
