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.


Wonderful B&B

5 on April 25, 2017

We have now stay at Dreamcatcher 3 times and each time is better. John prepares gourmet breakfasts. The garden is beautiful. We were so fond of the B&B we selected the Dreamcatcher as site for our wedding. John and Purdy were perfect hosts


Rochelle was fabulous

5 on January 09, 2017

Taos is our favorite place for Christmas. After the bon fires and ceremony at Taos Pueblo on Christmas Eve, Rochelle had delicious meal prepared. Her breakfasts were fantastic. We could not have had a better stay anywhere in Taos.


Great Place with delicious breakfast

5 on October 31, 2016

We only stayed one night but wished we could have stayed longer. The room was quaint and meticulously clean and the breakfast was wonderful. Prudy and John were gracious and helpful and we highly recommend this place.


Great place to stay in Taos

5 on October 25, 2016

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Dreamcatcher. It provided all that we needed and was very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and our British idiosyncrasy of putting warm milk in our coffee was remembered each morning by John after our initial request. It was an easy walk into Taos and to Bella's, recommended by Trudy, where we enjoyed two evenings having found the food so good the first time. We would love to return.


Awesome Lodging in Taos

5 on October 17, 2016

No excuse to not stay at the Dreamcatcher B& B when you are in Taos! All of the emenities are top-notch and the icing on the cake is Jake, the welcome dog! Wonderful hosts, outstanding breakfast and good conversations. Dining onsite is just breakfast but they provide an extensive list of menus of area restaurants for any other time of the day.


Can't wait to return.

4.8 on August 13, 2016

This was our first stay at Dreamcatcher B&B but one of many visits to Taos. We have stayed in very nice B&Bs there, but will return to Dreamcatcher again. I have food allergies and the breakfast accommodated them beautifully-something which is rarely achieved but greatly appreciated. We slept so well on the mattress that we bought one just like it as soon as we returned home. Staff friendly, unobtrusive and efficient.
