Ravens Ridge
Ranked #13 of 36 Santa Fe B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 September 2011

Ravens Ridge is superb in every way. Phyllis and Judge are consummate hosts, the rooms are tranquil and beautifully appointed, the views spectacular, the food scrumptious and the gardens a flowery oasis. We stayed in the Casita for 3 days and wished it had been 3 weeks. Phyllis and Judge have thought of everything for their guests' comfort -- their attention to detail is as remarkable as the warm and generous welcome they extend to their guests. Phyllis and Judge know the area very well and are always happy to share their knowledge of everything from the best hiking trails to the best silver shopping to the best restaurants. The location is ideal -- a short drive from the bustle of the plaza (they have a very convenient parking space in the heart of downtown), but with views and quiet that none of the downtown inns can possibly match. I'll never stay anywhere else again in Santa Fe. If you're there on a night of clear skies, Judge will get out his telescope and offer a fabulous tour of stars and galaxies. Our evening of stargazing was just one of the many highlights of our stay at this exquisite bed and breakfast.

We stayed in the casita, which was comfortable, well-equipped, and beautifully appointed. The B&B is located in a lush garden oasis just a short drive from downtown Santa Fe. A hearty gourmet breakfast is served on a covered patio along side a koi pond and with a terrific view of dozens of hummingbirds feeding in the flower garden. After breakfast, Inkeepers Phyllis and Judge share their extensive knowledge of the history and culture of the area, along with what to see and do. They also provide their guests with detailed maps and guides upon arrival. Their top notch service continued until our departure, when they came out to bid us farewell. They noticed that the tires on our rental car were under-inflated. So Judge went in and got his air tank and pumped up out tires. Now that's service!

Our stay at Raven's Ridge ranks as one of the best B & B experiences we've had – ever! We stayed in the Casita (which has a small but very functional kitchen, dining area and living room area, bedroom with an extremely comfortable king size bed, and bathroom with a shower); the windows have lovely views of the mountains, and the skylights let in even more of that especially clear and lovely light characteristic of the high desert landscape. The small patio has a table with a shade umbrella nice for reading or eating lunch or dinner outside. The garden – where our communal breakfasts were served – is incredibly lovely. Flowers in profusion, water (a pond with koi), meditatively meandering paths, amazing views and many hummingbirds! There is a canopied area with chaises were one can observe the hummingbirds at close range. The breakfasts were also exceptional – extraordinarily fresh ingredients prepared with attention to detail (without being fussy). The hosts, Phyllis and Judge, were some of the favorite people we met on our trip – wonderful hosts who were very attentive to our needs but also just really warm, interesting, and extremely pleasant people. We felt very well taken care of. Both Judge and Phyllis are very knowledgeable about things to do in the area, and we especially enjoyed viewing Saturn and its rings and the full moon's surface through Judge's telescope and along with his super-informative, informal astronomy lesson (which also included a survey of the visible constellations and a viewing of the station station as it hurtled across the night sky).

We had a terrific time. The hosts are knowledgeable about Santa Fe and environs, hiking, star-gazing. They adjusted to our dietary restrictions and served yummy breakfasts, provided chilled water (a must in the altitude), parking Downtown, a romantic room. A great place to stay!

Wish we could have stayed and painted more, not to mention eaten more breakfasts and meditated more in this little garden of Eden.

Superb in every way. Phyllis and Judge are delightful and have created an oasis in the desert for people and hummingbirds. I promise you've never seen anything quite like the hummingbird festivities that plays out everyday in their garden. Our casita suite was beautifully appointed, luxe and supremely comfortable. The breakfasts under the pergola were creative, tasty and artfully presented. So wonderful to dine outside, truly perfect. It was the absolute highlight of our southwest trip.

Ravens Ridge B&B is a short, easy drive (5 min) from downtown Santa Fe. The accommodations are new and clean, offering all the comforts and amenities that one might need or want. Wide-open, territorial views, an expansive garden retreat -- we felt like we were a world away! Phyllis and Judge are gracious hosts, superb chefs (breakfasts were delicious and rival any 5-star restaurant!) and knowledgeable resources. Free, in-city parking was available. We felt well cared for and look forward to a return visit!

Room Tip: Phyllis or Judge will help you decide which room best suits your needs.
