Historical Traveler Reviews Dreamcatcher B&B Taos
An Exceptional Home Away from Home
The warm welcome from two of the most personable hosts would have been sufficient for this to be a memorable stay in Taos, but there was much more.
The courtyard encircled by the living quarters was one of the most relaxing places we have been. The tree-enclosed canopy of walkways and plantings were thoughtfully designed to stimulate a leisurely sense of place.
Then there were the delicious breakfasts, with hot and cold choices each day. And the assistance with planning our ventures.
If Taos is in your plans, and relaxation with fine breakfasts are priorities, or just good company, check out Dreamcatcher.
Peaceful Stay w/ Gracious Hosts at Good Value
Downtown Taos is a surprisingly noisy little area. For a compact area, the traffic was surprisingly dense. That is why we were glad to have found this cozy little inn tucked away behind another property in a residential area within walking distance to downtown.
Our room (and bed) was very comfortable with thoughtful amenities and nice, simple Southwestern decor. Bob and Jill are such warm hosts to get to know, and have thought of many of the little things that make guests feel at home. There's also home-made cake(yum - thanks Jill!) and cookies(hubby said those are good too) along with teas available during the day - great for re-charging after a long drive around check-in time. There's a choice of a hot or cold breakfast; the hot was tasty.
Although we love the smell of hickory smoke at sea level, may we kindly suggest that there not be so much of that in the rooms as it would be easier for some guests to adjust to the dehydrating effects of the higher altitude of Taos; the scent made our already dry throats scratchy.
100+ Nights of Dreams
The Dreamcatcher is a true gem. My partner and I discovered it in Nov. 1998 just after Bob and Jill became owners and we have loved it ever since. We have watched all the changes made and have marveled at each and every one of them - most done by the innkeepers themselves! We have now stayed over 100 nights at the Dreamcatcher and would not stay anywhere else. The hosts are knowledgable and helpful about everything Taos and beyond. The breakfasts are wonderful, offering many choices. Even when we know we have a 12+ hour drive ahead of us to get home we stay for Bob's breakfast! The location is quiet and peaceful and still only a 10 minute walk from the Plaza. We have spent many an afternoon lounging in the hammocks enjoying the cool New Mexico afternoons. Their rates are reasonable and the rooms are very clean and comfortably furnished in the southwestern tradition. Thank you, Bob and Jill for making all our nights dreamy!
P & T of Texas
Home away from home!
We just made our fifth visit to Taos and our fifth visit to Dreamcatcher B&B! Whether you're busy every moment with tourist activities or just taking time to relax in the beautiful courtyard, this is the place to do it all. Jill and Bob are delightful hosts and we'll be back again.
Love the Dreamcatcher!
I can't believe the reivew from the Trip Advisor regarding the March, 2006 visit to the Dreamcatcher B & B. My husband and I, as well as family and friends, have stayed numerous times at the Dreamcatcher and found it lovely, warm,and thorougly accomodating. Bob and Jill are knowledgeable about Taos; the restaurants, hiking trails, and shops and they just plain like the area which shows in everything they do to make people feel welcome. The food is topnotch and the rooms are clean and personally decorated. It's our favorite B & B and we have tried several others in the area.
Sweet dreams at Dreamcatcher
Just want to congratulate Jill and Bob for their personal touch and hospitality at Dreamcatcher, a thoughfully put together bed and breakfast in Taos, New Mexico. The decor was very pleasing and there were so many personal touches. The living room felt very much like home with books, DVD's, CD's, umbrellas, flashlights, snacks and beverages available all the time. The rooms were so clean and the linens were so comfortable. It was so nice to have a fridge in the room and hammocks in the back yard. Most of all, it was quiet and private, really a home away from home. Thank you so much!!
Peaceful, Good Value, Nice place to stay and unwind
Bob and Jill have created a very relaxing little B&B with all of the atmosphere which one expects from a visit to Taos. I found Bob to be very informative about the area and Jill was a great personality at the breakfast table. They have done a nice job decorating the rooms and garden areas. Breakfasts were very good. I recommend the dreamcatcher if you are looking for a quiet getaway. We stayed there for two nights and will return on our next Taos outing.
We love this place.
The Dreamcatcher B&B is without a doubt the nicest B&B tha my husband and I have ever stayed in. The innkeepers, Jill and Bob, were wonderful hosts, very helpful in assisting with planning our day and finding great restaurants. Bob is a fantastic cook as the breakfasts were delicious and very filling. We loved the quiet courtyard, especially the hammocks and the hot tub. The room rate was very reasonable, the whole place was very clean. We would highly recommend the Dreamcatcher if you are planning on going to Taos.
Horrible Experience with Dreamcatcher B&B
The owners/innkeepers of the Dreamcatcher were truly terrible to work with and acted very uncooperative and unfriendly when even asking questions about their B&B on more than one occasion without even staying there yet. I have never been treated as rudely and because of this bad experience, I strongly suggest looking elsewhere for a B&B in Taos.
This is the place to de-stress
Taos was the second leg of our trip; we started in Santa Fe and wish we would have started at the Dreamcatcher. This place is wonderful! It was a little alarming that no one in town had heard of this place, and driving down the road to get to the B&B is alarming because some of the places you passed seemed a little run down. The road opened up and this beautiful tree lined place appears and takes your breath away. We felt so lucky to have met the Inn sitter Judy; she was so accommodating, down to earth and so warm and friendly. She explained that the owners were on vacation but would be back the last day of our stay. She gave us a tour of the place, brought us to our room, made some great recommendations for dinner and other places to eat around town. If you want to de-stress this is the place to be, the grounds have a beautiful sitting area where the guests seem to gather and meet and share travel stories. There are two hammocks, which were my favorite, the wind whispers through the leaves on the trees surrounding the area and you have no choice but to lay back and relax and let your stress blow away with the gentle breeze. Our room, the Fetish Bear was wonderful, we were able to light the Kiva and enjoy its warmth our first night there. Our last evening my husband met Bob the owner, he wasn't nearly as warm and fuzzy as Judy. The next morning Jill breezed out the door for her part time job, introducing herself as she was leaving. Bob took care of serving breakfast and we could feel the difference with not having Judy there, the magic and warmth were missing. I have to say the food here is amazing, they serve a hot breakfast with a lot of the New Mexico touches, and our favorite was the green chili burrito with blueberry corn muffins, yum! I am not sure our experiences would have been as amazing had it not been for the inn sitter we met, we will be back but will try to plan it when Judy the inn sitter will be there. As for a recommendation I would highly recommend this hidden treasure to anyone staying in the Taos area, in fact if you are visiting multiple areas in New Mexico, this is the place to stay first so you will start out well relaxed.
