Stars at Every Turn

3.8 on January 18, 2016

If you want to be among the scenery and stars, enjoy a room, fireplace or near a little village, look no further than Adobe & Stars. The breakfast is the highlight of this place with Corrinne giving hospitable and French touches to each breakfast each morning. We were slow to leave but want to come back again.

If you love the Mountains, you will love this place!

It's taken me some time to get around to writing this review, but doing so was always on my mind because I want people to know that this is a great place to stay. I love the mountains, and my wife and I made several trips into the ski basin last fall because this B&B is perfectly located. We loved the innkeeper. She was helpful and friendly, and even loaned my wife a rain jacket for an uncertain fall forecast. The breakfast is great. The rooms are very nice, and the location is awesome. I am a hiker and a nature lover and my wife wanted to see downtown Taos. This B&B did not disappoint. It is convenient to many wonderful hikes as well as downtown Taos and Arroyo Seco. New Mexico lovers need to check out the Adobe and Stars!

Magical Place

Adobe and Stars exceeded all expectations of even the excellent reviews in Austin paper. Fireplace in room, robes, beautiful garden, hummingbirds galore and stunning mountain views and sunsets. Best breakfasts ever matched by true hospitality. A very special place.

Great stay

4.0 on April 16, 2015

Wonderful location on the road to the ski valley north of town. Very quiet and great views. Very hospitable innkeeper and delicious breakfast.

Great place and pet friendly

Great setting and location near Arroyo Seco. Usually you have to compromise on quality when seeking a dog friendly place, but not this time. Breakfasts were great. Friendly staff. Nice room. Also a nice thing for non-dog people is that pets are not roaming inside the main residence, but allowed in your room, or on leash with you outside. Great week we really enjoyed our stay.

"A Wonderful Place to Stay"

Adobe & Stars is a wonderful place to stay. This establishment captures the essence of Taos. We would not consider staying elsewhere. The comfort and quiet is exceptional.

A Great Place!

We arrived late to a very understanding & accommodating owner. The room was posh, jacuzzi soothing, gardens relaxing & the breakfast was the best I ever had!

Beautiful location, excellent lodging

Judy provided our group with a lovely and comfortable home base for four nights as we explored the beauty of New Mexico from Santa Fe to the Colorado border. We enjoyed the comfortable and beautifully decorated rooms, deliciously sumptuous breakfasts, the charming patio and gathering areas, great views and easy access to wherever we wanted to go. Judy's welcoming personality made us feel at ease, and her knowledge about restaurants, shopping and sights in the area was a bonus! Would definitely stay there again!

One Good Return Deserves Another

We enjoyed two fine stays at Adobe and Stars, and appreciated the hospitality of the innkeeper a great deal. Besides the wonderful breakfasts, and the extra treats throughout the late afternoon and evening, the warm, comfortable rooms with a fire to lay in the evenings; in addition to fine meals in the area--Sabroso became like a second home--as well as all there is to see and do in the area, there is Judy Salathiel herself, who blends professionalism and a real concern for her guests' welfare. She was especially accommodating to two families--ours included--with special needs; I can't say enough good, except to hope to get back there soon!

Breakfast is incredibly healthy, hearty, and delicious!

Great location . . . easy to get to town and the ski hill, but north of town and quiet. The views are beautiful. The rooms are spacious. Judy is a great resource for restaurant info. And the breakfast is AMAZING!
