American Artists Gallery B&B
Ranked #14 of 23 Taos B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 June 2012

What a charming place this is. I always check reviews on tripadvisor before booking anywhere. All the 5 star remarks about American Artists Gallery B&B are so true. But the Bird made our stay even more remarkable and George the Peacock entertained every day. The food... now I know why there were so many kudo's about the breakfasts. Staying there with my husband was like being on another honeymoon with Charles and LeAn catering to our every need and providing guidance to restaurants, sights and entertainment. We too have stayed at many B&B's around the world and this one, so clean, so comfy, so secluded and away from the maddening crowd but close to everything... is very special. Go out of your way and get in here!

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary in Taos with a hot air balloon ride and a stay at American Artists Galley B&B last month. Charles and LeAn were the perfect hosts! Their excellent service, expert guides, delicious breakfasts, and friendly smiles helped make our trip comfortable and memorable. And don't forget the personal touches - LeAn reserved a quiet, romantic table for our anniversary dinner at Lamberts (which was excellent by the way), and Charles served as photographer, taking pictures of us right before our special evening out. They definitely have great customer service and accommodations.

Hosts Charles and LeAn have this inn-keeping thing down cold, from high quality chocolates to welcome us when we arrived in our guest room, to menus (and candid opinions and recommendations) for many Taos restraurants, to helpful but completely unintrusive guidance on how to navigate room keys and heating and cooling units, to fabulous home made cookies in the refrigerator, to an unbelievable home cooked breakfast with blue corn pancakes, a cranberry banana smoothie and lots of other good stuff. We stayed one night in the smallest of their units, the Garden Gallery, which was adorable and architecturally gorgeous and plenty big for 2 people. My personal acid test for any lodging is the quality of the towels, and their's were in the TOP .00001 percent for thickness and softness. Nice! On top of it all, we were greeted upon arrival by the long-term resident peacock, George, who is a showoff and provided plenty of photo ops while in full display. Lots of other birds frequent the back yard at various times of year, and Charles is happy to educate anyone who displays an interest. AND it is a couple of minutes drive to the Plaza at most. The location is private and quiet and couldn't have suited us better.

Room Tip: If you're unsure based upon what you see online, talk to Charles or LeAn on the phone. They wil...

My husband and I and our children stayed at this B&B and really had a wonderful experience. LeAn and Charles really are sweet, thoughtful people and went out of their way to make our stay great. And the breakfasts... wow! We have stayed in many B&Bs around the world, and this was definitely at the top! Also, the mattresses were very comfortable. When we come back to Taos for skiing, we know exactly where we'll stay!

I have nothing but magnificent things to say about our experience at the American Artists Gallery B & B. My husband and I decided to take a weekend trip away for our 9th wedding anniversary. Our weekend began with some minor car trouble. From the beginning, the hosts and owners, Charles and LeAn were nothing but superbly helpful. The first night, they guided us on where to have a great meal within walking distance of the B & B (due to the car trouble) and Charles even offered to help us figure out what was going on with the car the next morning. The next morning during breakfast (which by the way is amazing!) Charles was kind enough to refer us to a local mechanic which had our car fixed up and ready to go within no time! On the same note, that evening, my husband and I were set up for a most romantic dinner at Lambert's; Charles had gone ahead and reserved a quiet, romantic spot for us in honor of our anniversary.

My husband and I have been to a couple of Bed and Breakfast's and I can wholeheartedly say that this experience has been the best we have had. The innkeepers are amazing, friendly, warm-hearted people who genuinely love what they do and it is evident. If ever in the Taos, area, definately consider spending a few nights with Charles and LeAn; You will not regret it!

Room Tip: The Jacuzzi rooms are quite amazing and very reasonably priced.

From the kiva fireplace to the oversized jacuzzi spa you will find yourself being delighted. The rooms are heated via their tile floors, there is a small bar area and fridge and the layout of the inn is uncomplicated and serene.

Breakfast is large and delicious and you'll have the added treat of watching the multitude of birds flocking to the feeders outside the dining area. Or maybe you'll meet George the resident peacock...
