Casa de las Chimeneas Bed and Breakfast Inn in Taos, New Mexico
Casa de las Chimeneas Bed and Breakfast Inn showed up on two of our lists: the Conde’ Naste Gold List, and the AAA Four Diamond list.
We pulled into Casa de las Chimeneas after a very long day of exploration between Santa Fe, and Taos, New Mexico.
The Inn is tucked away in a grove of very large cottonwoods only two blocks off the main thoroughfare, and as we pulled in the drive our first impression was a very good one. As you can see, by the photograph above, the architecture is stunning.
Rosie, a 19 year member of the Inn’s team, greeted us with a huge smile, spent a few minutes with us explaining the layout of the Inn, beamed with pride as she explained that the Inn was also a part of Select Registry, and then guided us to our Rio Grande Suite where we would be spending the next two nights.
The suite was spacious, thoughtfully appointed with all the niceties that you would expect from an Inn of this caliber, and also featured a wonderful fireplace in the suite. Casa de las Chimeneas means The House of Chimneys, and every single suite features a warm, romantic fireplace.
In the morning we met met Diana, another 15 year member of this team, who prepared a wonderful breakfast for us. I especially enjoyed their signature fruit frappe drink, and the blue corn pancakes were out of this world.
After breakfast, I walked around the grounds, and although we were here prior to spring’s full bloom, I could tell that in a few months their gardens would be producing a visual feast certainly to add to the Inn’s regal charm.
If you find yourself in Taos, New Mexico we can highly recommend Casa de las Chimeneas. Your experience will be top notch, you will feel very much at home, the breakfast is splendid, and their location, just blocks away from the Taos Plaza, which will lend itself nicely to an evening stroll through the town of Taos.
