A Diamond off the beaten path!!!!!

4.8 on March 02, 2013

Wow! What an experience! Took a little finding..... When I say off the beaten path I mean it. No paved street so be prepared to put on your 4 wheel drive or you gonna be in for a little bit of a bumpy ride. Once there the rooms are clean, inviting and feels like a home away from home. The views are spectacular no matter if you sit during the day and observe the sunrise or watch the view of the lights of Downtown El Paso at night. The dinning is like going to a family dinning room with all the comforts of home with out all the clean up. The manger Marlene and the dog Peanut makes you feel like family. Wonderful place nestled right behind El Paso. If you look hard enough from look-out point on Transmountain you might see Peanut resting on the patio.

We would buy it if we could

Casa de Suenos was magical. We went away for a special weekend, and after taking the suggestion of a fine dining restaurant from the owner, sat on the back patio looking at the mountains lit up by the city lights. The view was spectacular.

Way out of town, but well worth the trip!

George and Marlene were excellent hosts and our room more than met our expectations. Our train was late arriving in El Paso, but we kept Marlene up to date from the train on our progress and they were waiting to welcome us when we finally arrived well after dark. We would recommend this B&B to anyone.

The Perfect Place to Unwind

I'm not sure what I expected before arriving at Casa de Suenos. Once there, however, I felt like staying a month rather than the three days I had booked my room for. Away from the hustle and bustle and in the midst of whispering desert breezes, the B&B is definitely the place to relax. The room was clean, comfortable, with its own private patio and having breakfast with Marlene and George felt like visiting family. Look forward to staying there again.

We will return!!

On business in El Paso, Texas, I researched places to stay on the internet and determined from pictures online that the most relaxing place to stay would be Casa de Suenos, in another state. Indeed, this was true. The drive from El Paso was not long, and, turning up the dirt road to the Country Inn, I found myself excited at the prospect of a silent desert night. My room was comfortable, with a wine key and glasses, plus a coffee maker, and I enjoyed both coffee and wine on my adorable patio overlooking three mountain ranges (two in two different states and one in Mexico.) Breakfast was wholesome and interesting and the proprietors are lovely, as are their dogs. Should business take me again to El Paso (or that part of New Mexico), I will surely stay at Casa de Suenos again.

This is truely a beautiful retreat. Breakfast was "made to order". George and Marlene are delightful inkeepers and make you feel welcomed. I've already recommended it to 3 of my friends.

It's like entering "Inn-keepers" Marlene & George's home...

without inconveniencing them. The B&B owners are fantastic! The surroundings are serene. The stay from service to companionship to friendship is phenomenal! Such a great place to stay out of the city & receive great hospitality.

About the innkeepers

Marlene worked for many years in the Developmental Disabilities field. My favorite part of the day is enjoying conversations with guests over breakfast or on the back patio in the evening. Eco-friendly tile designs in southwestern themes created by Marlene can be found around the B & B.
