A nice place to stay

My wife and I stayed a couple of nights in the Gecko's Garden room shortly after Christmas. The room was very nice and comfortable and the Inn was conveniently located. Breakfasts were delicious. We recommend this Inn to Taos travelers.

My wife and I stayed at Dreamcatchers in November 2015. Our hosts were wonderful even before we arrived. John provided excellent advice on getting to the Inn from Santa Fe and even though we arrived at night we did not get lost! Our room was wonderful and cozy and the wood burning fireplace was great on a cold night with snow outside on the ground. Recommendations for places to eat were excellent and we ate at Lambert's two nights in a row for outstanding gourmet meals with excellent wines. Breakfasts were wonderful and fun given the mix of interesting guests at the table. Certainly, this is where we hope to stay next time we come to Taos!


Best Birthday Getaway

John and Prudy have created quite an oasis--within walking distance to town square yet far enough to maintain that quiet, rustic feel. Wealth of knowledge made planning our time there a breeze; we didn't feel like we wasted a minute. Scrumptious breakfasts, catering to guest needs and food sensitivities. Looking forward to a return trip!


Our stay in Taos was great

4.6 on October 22, 2015

This was our first ever BnB and we were very pleased with our experience. The Dreamcatcher is a great location in Taos. The hosts were very nice people, professional and easy to deal with.

Innkeeper Response
So glad we could be your first B&B experience. Hope to see you next time you come to Taos, and in the meantime, happy travels!


Beautiful and Relaxing

Welcoming. Comfortable room. Friendly. Peaceful. Quite. Nice garden. Outdoor hammocks. Delicious breakfast.¿

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us. The hammocks have been put away for the winter, but we still light a fire at the patio during the winter for those hearty souls who love to star watch on crisp winter nights.


Lovely place

owners were extremely friendly and informative. room was fine, but there was a chair in the kokopelli room with tattered upholstry and stains.

Innkeeper Response
We agree with you! That chair was looking pretty tired!! We actually had just ordered a new chair for the Kokopelli Room which arrives this week. And we are in the process of upgrading all of our mattresses, although we haven't received complaints. We just want our guests to have the best possible experience when they stay at the Dreamcatcher. We'll try to post a new photo soon on the website of the new chair in the Kokopelli Room. Thanks again for staying with us! Prudy, Owner/Innkeeper


Stop looking and book this one...

4.6 on February 05, 2015

We booked this B&B on very short notice. The hosts were understanding and left a key out for us as we were arriving quite late. The room (fetish bear room) was clean, the fireplace was cozy, bathroom clean and well stocked. The bed was a normal size queen but the frame was a hand carved piece with a foot board. My boyfriend is 6'4'' and this caused some discomfort for him. I slept like a baby. Breakfast was two courses and outstanding. I will stay again in a heart beat but will choose a different room. The grounds were beautiful and the doggie was so sweet that I wanted to put him in my suitcase and take him home. Stop your search and book this one now. :)

Innkeeper Response
We do have 2 rooms with King beds, the Pueblo and Gecko's Garden Rooms. Gecko's Garden even has an extra long California King size. Also, we have removed a knot in the pine bedframe in Fetish Bear, so that should eliminate the possibility of knocking into the frame by accident. Looking forward to your next visit, and thanks for taking the time to share your experience with others. Our shorter than 6' guests love the Fetish Bear Room, because it has its own little patio for enjoying beautiful Taos days and evenings Prudy Innkeeper/Owner


Quaintest Stay!

We absolutely loved this gem. So cute and quaint. Perfectly clean and the owners thought of every detail. We cannot recommend it enough!


Like Staying with Family but Better!

4.0 on November 15, 2014

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.
