I spent one night here and had a lovely time. It was easy to make a reservation the same week I stayed. The owner was friendly and welcoming and cooked up some good breakfast burritos, along with offering other continental breakfast options. It was enjoyable eating breakfast with the other guests in the main house. The wooden interior of the room was beautiful and I definitely took advantage of the jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. It's not far from the village of Jemez Springs but it feels like you're a world away from the bustling town. There are hammocks around the property and the resident dog was a happy addition. The price was reasonable. I would definitely stay here again the next time I take an overnight getaway from Albuquerque.
