These casitas provide the comforts of home, where you can cook your own meals, work using the fiber-optic Internet connection, or stay in for a quiet evening of Netflix and chill. And if you want to go out and about, the property is right in the heart of Downtown Taos.

Dreamcatcher Bed and Breakfast

Dreamcatcher Bed and Breakfast is a small and cozy B&B right within Downtown Taos. It has seven spacious guestrooms, each with its own private entrance from the property’s courtyard. So if you want to keep to yourself during your stay, you can relax on the queen-size bed inside your room while watching DirectTV or surfing the net using the room’s high-speed Wi-Fi access. But if you’re feeling social, you can hang out at the common living room and have a chat with the hosts and other guests. There are hammocks in the garden if you want to chill outdoors too. The B&B is a great base for exploring Taos’ food scene and historic center, as it’s only a ten-minute walk or so from attractions like Taos Plaza and Kit Carson House.

The Historic Taos Inn

Among the hotels in Taos, the Historic Taos Inn holds the distinction of being listed in the National Register of Historic Places. That’s because the inn was once the home of Thomas “Doc” Martin, one of the first doctors to practice in New Mexico and a prominent Taos figure in the 1900s. His sister Rose was married to Bert Phillips, one of the founders of the Taos Society of Artists. The inn retains much of its original charm from the days of Doc Martin, though modernized for today’s sensibilities. Each room is decorated in the quintessential Southwestern style. Wi-Fi access is available throughout the property. The hotel has its own restaurant and bar, where live music is played nightly. The hotel also provides guests with access to a local yoga studio and gym.
