Wonderful stay !!

We really loved this B&B. The location is great. We loved the privacy that the rooms afforded us, our own separate entrance to come and go as we pleased. Beautiful and quiet back yard for a great fire with family and friends around, The breakfast was plentiful and delicious, and the hosts were very kind and helpful . Definitely check this place out!

Innkeeper Response
You mentioned some of the things we also love about our place. Every room has its own separate outside entrance, opening to our beautiful and welcoming courtyard. The patio is large enough for all of our guests to gather if they want to, but we also have a couple of separate sitting areas if you want to have a private conversation. And now that the weather is nice, the hammocks are up for the summer! John continues to come up with new and interesting breakfast ideas, but you can always count on the Hot Oats Brulee as a starter - yum!

We have found a new favorite B&B

4.8 on January 19, 2018

Our hosts were delightful, helpful in our questions regarding local attractions, and the breakfast menu was to die for. John was our chef the only morning to dine in. What an amazing meal. Add to that we were introduced to other guests, professional musicians in town for a concert, and a professional guitarist and his wife from Argentina that happened up to Taos to catch the concert. Shortly after breakfast, our guest musicians put on an impromptu concert to all of our delight. The facilities and the grounds were within walking distance of the town center shops, restaurants, and galleries but the B&B itself was tucked away in a quiet little corner of a nearby residential area. This is definitely our new fav B&B in NM.

An Amazing and Relaxing Experience

I am so grateful for the opportunity to get away from my hectic life and relax in this quaint and spirited place. The hosts are extremely gracious and helpful. The breakfast was exquisite and tasty. I hope to share your space again in the near future.

Lovely Bread and Breakfast in Taos

4.6 on November 05, 2017

John and Prudy could not be more gracious and helpful and the 2 course breakfasts were absolutely top rate. The oatmeal is beyond words, don't turn it down! We stayed in the Storyteller room and it was comfortable and very well appointed. There is no question where we will stay if and when we return to Taos. Highest recommendation!

Last Minute Stay

5 on October 09, 2017

Decided last minute we wanted to stay the night in Taos, called the in the afternoon and as luck would have it they did have an available accommodation. The room was cute and clean. The garden is very relaxing and John and Prudy couldn't be better hosts! Easy walk into town and a lovely breakfast. We'll be back for sure.

Innkeeper Response
We love helping our guests, late arrivals, early arrivals, however they get here, gives us a chance to deliver our own brand of guest support. We love our job and are most happy when we know the guest has a great time. Many thanks for the review. See you next time. John & Prudence Abeln, owners

Excellent B&B

5 on October 03, 2017

What a great place to stay in Taos. John and Prudy have all the details covered for a most comfortable stay. We loved the Gecko room. Breakfast was superb! Great suggestions for dining, shopping and sightseeing.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to let other travelers know how much you enjoyed your time at the Dreamcatcher B&B. The Gecko's Garden is one of 2 King-size bedrooms we have and a favorite of many of our guests. We are just converting the fireplaces from candles to supplying wood for our guests to enjoy a wonderful blazing fire on those chilly winter nights!

Wonderful Stay at Dreamcatcher

5 on July 18, 2017

We had a wonderful stay at Dreamcatcher Bed & Breakfast. We stayed in the Pueblo Suite, it has a king size bed and a kiva fireplace with beautiful southwestern décor. The bed was very comfortable. The yard was blooming with colorful flowers. We will be back.

Beautiful Guest House and gardens!

4.6 on July 13, 2017

A lovely place to stay. A girlfriend and I stayed in the Dreamcatcher Suite and it was perfect for us. Two bedrooms joined by a bathroom with separate entrances was great! The garden is just lovely and the light projector into the trees just magical! Location is good too however a little tricky to navigate from the Plaza at night as no street lights...so take a flashlight! The hosts are just wonderful people and having breakfast with other guests was really nice as we came from all over the place. I would highly recommend and would definitely go back.
