I could not imagine a more beautiful and relaxing place to stay than at Casa de la Cuesta. It is a cultural oasis that embodies the historic beauty and artistic spirit of San Miguel. The owners, Bill and Heidi, are warm and welcoming and eager to share their wealth of knowledge of Mexico's customs, culture and folk lore. Ask them for recommendations and you'll get a marked up map guiding you to points of interest specific to your liking. Each room has it's own unique style. All of the rooms are colorful, cozy, clean and very comfortable. There is artwork everywhere you look. There are several beautifully designed courtyards where you can enjoy some quiet reading or just relaxing while enjoying the dance of dozens of hummingbirds. Bill's mask museum is truly a one of a kind collection of masks and dress, representing a wide variety of Mexico's ancient cultural dance, and beautifully presented with videos and descriptions. In tandem, Heidi will inspire you with her unique collection of colorful art and handicrafts made by local artists. Breakfast is an event presented by the lovely kitchen ladies. The dining is open to the kitchen so they keep a watchful eye for approval as the courses are served by Marchello, (Bill), the handsome and dashing server. Breakfast, served at 9:00 am, is also an opportunity to meet house guests and share experiences. Heidi very kindly arranged my transportation to and from the Leon airport, and was an invaluable resource throughout my visit. You will find Bill and Heidi to be the most personable host and hostess. I highly recommend Casa de la Cuesta.
