A Must-Stay B&B

5 on April 17, 2014

I enjoyed a night in the Manzano Rood which is huge, very comfortable and has spectacular views from its quaint balcony. Breakfast was homey and the other guests were friendly. Beautiful old log home up in the mountains and it's quiet and very peaceful. Little walks in the garden are pleasant. Elaine is a gracious host and I felt very welcome. I would highly recommend this charming B&B. Adrienne

Enchantment starts here!

My husband and I have stayed here many times. We've brought friends along to share the experience. In fact, it's always part of our visits to the Land of Enchantment. Elaine's is rustic and lovely. The setting is beautiful and peaceful; the rooms--especially the beds--are sublime. Elaine is a delightful and generous hostess. Can't recommend this place highly enough!
