Historical Traveler Reviews Adobe and Pines B&B Ranchos De Taos
A True Treasure in Taos
My husband and I just got back from a great long Valentine weekend at this wonderful B&B and this is truly THE best place to stay in Taos. Every room at the Inn is unique, full of charm and very comfortable. The Innkeepers, Lou and Kathy will gladly share helpful information regarding Taos and the surrounding area - including where to ski, shop, best places to eat and historical knowledge of the Inn and Taos - plus the breakfast every morning is amazing (Lou was a chef in his former life). They suggested we ski at Sipapu - we had a great time - Sipapu feels like a private lodge, no lines, no crowds and a fraction of the cost of most ski resorts. Also if you are cx skiing try Amole Canyon in Carson National Forest.
On another note, the Inn is pet friendly and our Golden Retriever - Bear loved watching the Alpacas on the property as well as his daily treats from Lou.
We will go back to this great treasure in Taos.
Very good option
Very nice option for Taos. 8 or 9 rooms available to choose from. Individual Kiva fireplaces, breakfast in the am, beautiful gardens. Beds were comfortable, rooms well decorated and exceedingly clean. Quiet and peaceful. I don't think you can do better in Taos....
Can't Wait to Return!
My husband and I stayed at this amazing B&B during a snowy week in January. We had high expectations for Adobe and Pines and were very happy with our choice. The property is charming, with wonderful architectural details everywere you look. Our room (Casa Rosa) was warm, romantic, and decorated in a way that accentuated the details of this historic adobe hacienda. The huge tub, dry sauna, shower AND fireplace in the bathroom were such a treat. Katherine and Louis were friendly and helpful as we planned our events during our stay, even lining up an in-room massage for us when our spa plans didn't work out. The breakfasts were tasty and artfully presented, and we really enjoyed their rich coffee. The next time we travel to NM, we plan to return to Adobe and Pines to enjoy a spring or summer vacation.
Lovely place to stay
Great inn with awesome rooms and lovely property. Innkeepers are fantastic and friendly. This is a much better bet than staying on the plaza: plaxa isnt the same as Santa Fe's (not as quaint--Taos seemed a little more touristy to us). Best of all, the really good restaurants are closer to Adobe and Pines than to the plaza. We were on a ski vacation and it was worth the drive back from the mountain to stay at such a unique and private inn. Loved the Trading Post and Lamberts for dinner. Disappointed by Joseph's Table--wasnt THAT special. For a more local feel, try the Taoseno restaurant for breakfast! Order the smothered hashbrowns with both chiles!
My husband and I stayed at Adobe and Pines B & B in Taos, New Mexico during the balloon festival 10/28-31/06. We always do extensive research before we travel and are thrilled if we can experience the "WOW!" factor when we check in.
This was our pleasant surprise at Adobe and Pines. The site is lovely, a little pocket of serenity just off Highway 68. Don't be confused by the "off the frontage road" directions. What you're looking for is a long gravel drive that parallels the highway, but is actually a quiet, sylvan entrance to the inn.
The best part of the experience was the separation of the rooms from each other. We didn't check out all of them, but we believe that no room shares a wall with any other (we may be mistaken regarding one or two smaller rooms). I've stayed at La Posada in Santa Fe and was completely annoyed to be in a "casita" with such thin walls I could hear every detail of the neighbors' conversations. At over $500 per night I was miffed to say the least. Here you feel like you're in your own home.
Our room (truly a separate casita) was dramatic and set back from the highway. As it was cooler weather we had our windows closed, but there were large French doors that could be opened to the lovely main garden in warmer weather.
Our in-room jacuzzi was set into a platform that included a fireplace. It was truly large enough for 2. Heck, we could have swum laps :). The separate walk-in shower area was lovely. There were 2 sinks and lots of storage room for toiletries. They carry Desert Blend lotions, etc. which are personal favorites.
Breakfasts are served in a solarium overlooking another garden. Good coffee. Each breakfast is beautifully presented and from the sounds of everyone's moans of pleasure they were a hit with all. Louis's pumpkin, pecan, cranberry pancakes are sublime.
The hotel foyer is large and would be a good place to hang out to play board games or just relax, but our casita was so large there was no need to leave it. A room with 2 fireplaces plus a well equipped kitchenette is a good thing.
As both owners are artists, the decor is exceptionally well done. We love drama and our room had that with no kitsch.
There are nice touches like a huge basket of bottled water in the office foyer, which is vital in New Mexico. Very thoughtful. Oh, and a great DVD collection to watch on the flat-screen tv in your room.
The gardens with many many places to sit outside and the general area are perfect for a restful visit to Taos. A+ for romance and beauty.
In summer, there may be an issue with street noise from some rooms if you choose to have your windows open, but most windows face away from the highway so I'm not sure that would be any issue at all. The only noise we heard the whole time was come coyotes singing one night. It's called atmosphere.
There is plenty of drawer space in the bathroom, but it's limited in the bedroom area. We got along fine, but don't spend your time looking for a large chest of drawers.
At first we were not sure about staying on the south end of town, out of walking distance of the plaza, but we found we preferred it. It's near enough and there's easy and free parking near the plaza. Plus you're near some great restaurants on the south side of town. We recommend The Bean's south branch for coffee and early breakfast if you have very early plans don't allow eating at the inn.
Restaurant recommendations: Joseph's Table (if you like french fries, try the duck fat fries, awesome), Taos Pizza Outback (both of these highly rated by NYTimes and they were right on). Great Mexican restaurant just north of Inn which we didn't get to, but went to their "downtown" place called Rellenos if memory serves. Very nice.
Easy day trip to Santa Fe, lots of great hiking. Enjoy!

A very lovely stay
We've stayed a couple of times in Taos now, and while there are other good inns and B&Bs, the Adobe and Pines is now our favorite. It's a beautiful property, nicely away from the sometimes-busy "downtown" Taos area while still close enough to restaurants and shops to be convenient. The rooms are everything their web site pictures and claims, the grounds are very pleasant even in late fall, and Katherine and Louis (the owners) are very friendly and helpful. They also serve up some of the best breakfasts we've ever had. We can't imagine staying anywhere else in the Taos area after experiencing the hospitality and comfort at at the Adobe and Pines.
We really enjoyed our stay at Adobe Pines in Taos. The property is so unique with adobe style rooms, architecture, beautiful gardens, etc. It was really a relaxing stay! Louis (the owner and chef) prepared tasty breakfasts every morning, very unique! The hosts were always recommending restaurants, explaining about the local culture, and recommending various outdoor excursions.
The room we stayed in was a bit small and the bathroom was part of the room which meant no privacy in that respect. However, it was very cozy with an adobe fireplace, comfy linens, and soft towels.
Would definately recommend this B&B. The other rooms, although more expensive look amazing and we will get 15% off our next visit!
One complaint - The inn is right off the main road to Santa Fe so you get some noise from traffic. This is not a deterent by any means. Stay at this wonderful B&B!
My wife and I recently stayed during our 30th anniversary at Adobe and the Pines in Rancho de Taos. We were enticed by the dark pink adobe , the flowers, the acequia and the green lawns.
The owners Louis and Katherine are exceptional. We stayed here five years ago and it was nice; however they have such an attention to detail and are such comforting hosts, they have made it even more wonderful.
Louis is a professional chef and brings his talents to bear in the presentation of the breakfasts, which are works of art and delicious.
We were delighted in our room which was a casita called Puerta Roja. There are fireplaces in the bedroom and bath. We had a large jucuzzi tub, you almost could swim in it, and walk-in shower for two.
This is our favorite romatic getaway. We will go again for many years to come.
Ahhhh! Take me back to Taos!
I've stayed in many of the BnB's in Taos...and by far this one was my favorite. Tucked away on the South side of Taos is this retreat with blooming flowers and a bubbling brook running through the property. Tranquil and relaxing. I wish I could have stayed longer but plan to go back in a couple of months...I just can not get enough of Taos! The room was amazing with a soaking tub.....dim the lights and light some candles...Ahhh! If you go in the colder months...you can light the fireplace by the tub! The hosts were gracious and very helpful....the BEST cheese blintz ever! I highly recommend this bed and breakfast. Its close enough to the plaza but far enough away to relax! ENJOY!
Tranquil Garden Paradise
It does not get any better than this! It was more like a private retreat than a Bed and Breakfast. The location was great. It was only a very short drive to the plaza but you felt like you were in the middle of nowhere. The entrance to the grounds is misleading because it is so very plain but when you get into this compound the gardens are wonderful and the room even better. We stayed in the one with a sauna and sunken soaking tub and believe me we didn't miss a television at all. The breakfast was great and the people were very friendly. It is a very quiet place that makes you just want to stay and lay in the hammock instead of explore New Mexico. Wish we had been able to go somewhere like this 28 years ago on our honeymoon!

Christmas Eve: Up early to go to Taos Ski Valley - got our skis, Taos Card, and lessons. I took a Greenbird, MD & KK were in one class, and CK got a class by himself. Beautiful weather, sun was shining. Lunch at Tenderfoot Katie's then back on the slopes. Left the slopes about 3:30 and were glad to be done - a great first day! ...
On Monday I had quesadilla and spent another morning with couchsurfing and WWOOFing business. At 8:00 we started clearing and deepening parts of the Irrigation ditch that would water Jeff's fields. Some stretches were so shallow that the neighbor's alfalfa field would flood. It was unusually windy and cold so we only did that for an hour. But Jeff planned on running the water to soften up the hard soil and then digging it ...
On Sunday I got up at 8:00 and did online business and had a couple leftover muffins for breakfast. I felt weird about getting tired and ducking out of the party so early, but I talked to Victor and he said it was fine. Other people left early for different reasons. But several people stayed late and I heard they had a blast. I was ready to leave for the day at 9:00 but Roy was blocking everyone in with his huge bus and he was inside ...
On the day of the party I was again up at 7:30 and had another egg sandwich for breakfast. Victor and I found Annie shoveling manure out of the truck and we climbed up and joined her. We could see Tania harvesting in the garden for the party. We finished in half an hour and got a break. I called Kory and woke him up. I'm used to him being up way before me. Three of our friends from home had arrived in the wee hours to belatedly celebrate Kory's birthday over ...
On Friday I got up at 7:30 again and brought more stuff in from the van. At 8:15 I started hauling firewood, the bigger pieces I sorted yesterday and Jeff cut with the chainsaw, over to the woodpile by Jeff and Tania's trailer. I also transferred another woodpile out over the driveway to just over the fence next to the trailer. I finished in 45 minutes and went to join Victor and Annie in digging a triangular water trench around a new garden in ...
