“Wonderful and restful spot”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

The Cowgirl Suite was the perfect set-up for a family of four. Parents in master bedroom, with beautiful views of the mountains and a sunrise that lit up the sky. Kids in adjoining room with two twin beds. All very comfortable. Quiet and peaceful. Great respite after day of hiking.

Breakfasts were delicious, home-cooked and fresh yet also elegant. Hosts were friendly and full of suggestions for how to make the most of time in Taos.

Believe all the good reviews! Once you drive into the parking lot you know you've made the right choice. We felt at home as soon as we were greeted by Erika. Our room, La Escondida, was very comfortable and in a great location-a few steps from the main lobby/kitchen/dining room, and with the beautiful lawn/gardens outside our door. Be sure to enjoy the private hot tub, which you sign up for in the office. After reading the thorough restaurant menu book in the library/living room, we decided on The Love Apple for dinner, which is only a few steps away, and couldn't have been more pleased! We will definitely stay at Hacienda del Sol again.

I give Hacienda del Sol my highest ratings. We stayed the week after New Year's Day 2014 in the Taos Suite. It is a little hard to imagine just how tranquil and secluded the property is when you first approach it off the main road in Taos, but it is situated well behind the restaurants segregated by big beautiful trees adjacent to another B&B and backing up to hundreds of acres of undeveloped land preserved for the Native Americans. The views of Taos Mountain are every bit as spectacular as the photos on this site, probably even more so in the summer, and the outdoor hot tub in the back yard offers a closer private view of the scenery or the myriad of stars easily seen from this B&B at night.

The owners and hosts are Gerd and Luellen and their daughter and son-in-law, Erika and Mark. Gerd spent his career as a top chef for major hotel and cruise lines, which means you will enjoy some of the best breakfasts a B&B can offer. We stayed 3 nights, and every morning he greeted us with a different selection of two 2-course breakfasts that were out-of-this-world good! Erika and Mark run most of the operations. Don't miss an opportunity to talk with them - they are world-travelers to some of the most interesting places on earth, and have experienced more in their young adult lives than many of us much older. They also know Taos inside and out, and turned us on to several fantastic restaurants in town including our favorite, "The Love Apple" next door.

The Taos Suite was perfect in every way. We were greeted our first evening with champagne and chocolate strawberries (pre-arranged for additional cost) and immediately enjoyed the gas-lit fire in our kiva fireplace. The suite is heated through the tile floor controlled by your own thermostat, and we were always warm and comfortable.The large jacuzzi tub is perfect for romantic couples - the design was quite better than most I've experienced - and there was generous hot water in the shower. A second room in the back provides two twin beds, which we found convenient for our luggage. Taos suite features a comfortable leather couch, beautiful Vega ceilings, and skylights in each room. Don't be concerned about its location at the end of main house sharing a wall with the dining room - it has a single outside entrance, is very private, and you can't hear anything from the main house.

We would definitely stay at Hacienda del Sol during another visit to Taos - looking forward to it experiencing it in the summer next time!

Room Tip: Taos Suite was large, private, romantic - great room for a wintertime visit!

My boyfriend and I were wanting to go somewhere for a get-away trip.. I stumbled upon this B&B and thought it looked perfect. All of the reviews were outstanding and it sounded like a good experience. It was just what we were looking for. The customer service was excellent as we were greeted upon arriving. We were given the history of the place as well as tour. There were fresh snacks and beverages available, which was a nice touch. We were given recommendations for dinner which was quite helpful. Our room was fantastic and was very clean. We enjoyed a very quiet stay, even with 9 other guests the same night. The room was cozy and very comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was GREAT! We really enjoyed everything about this place and would love to come back! I definitely think this B&B has more of a romantic feel to it, but families stayed the same night we were there and seemed to enjoy it as well. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a cute, romantic place to stay!

A delightful hidden oasis oozing with charm, well maintained inside and out very comfortable accommodations and wonderful tranquil gardens with magnificent views. The proprietors, Gerd and Luellen both educated in the travel and hospitality industry are the best hosts and have tremendous knowledge of the area and things to do, never short of a conversation and Gerd in particular never shy of a story (the world as per Gerd Hertel).
Wonderful accommodation
Wonderful location
Wonderful people
Wonderful memories.

Thank you, see you again

We are regular visitors to the Toas area driving up from Texas to ski in winter and spring and to get away from the heat in summer. Quality accommodations for a good price are hard to find in the area - Hacienda has it all. Special shutout out to Gert -- great food !!! We will be back in February if you will have us - Happy New Year !

We loved our stay at Hacienda del Sol! Highly recommend staying here in Taos. The room was quaint and well appointed and the family running the B&B was wonderfully attentive and helpful! Lovely view from our room onto the mountains, too. Beautiful!
