Nice little hotel in Taos.

Posted Dec 31, 2016
Very good place but rooms a little too cold in the winter. Fireplace does a fair job but temperature drops dramatically inside the room. Otherwise very cozy, quiet, private and secluded spot, yet, fairly close car ride to town. Very family oriented. Feels like home.

Blue Sky bed and breakfast was very cozy.

Posted Dec 29, 2016
This bed and breakfast was very comfortable. We stayed for 4 nights over the Christmas weekend and we LOVED IT! The people were very nice and courteous. The building is over 100 years old so it's has its history but overall very well kept. It's in a very quiet area and we enjoyed that part of it. We will definitely go back for vacation again!

Nice hotel close to shopping and local activities

Posted Dec 23, 2016
The hotel staff made us feel at home. We would ask for restaurant recommendations to items for our room every need was met with friendly service. Our family had a great time making memories at Blue Sky in Taos, NM.

Beautiful, just beautiful.....

Second time we have stayed here in the spacious room #17. The walking path has plenty of places to sit & relax. If we get to come to Taos again next year, this is where we will stay.

Peace and warmth in Taos

Posted Sep 26, 2016
Pros: The beauty and atmosphere of the adobe style building. Being 10 minutes outside of town was relaxing and away from noise and traffic.
Location: Taos area has galeries, restaurants, Taos Pueblo, hot springs, hikes, many things to do close by and as day trips.
We spent 4 nights and loved the gracious spaces and warm atmosphere of this restored inn. Many places in the inn and on the quiet grounds to sit and enjoy the light, birdsong, etc. The staff was very welcoming and went the extra mile to make us comfortable. The place was immaculate. Breakfasts were varied and delicious. We totally recommend Blue Sky and can't wait to return.

Affordable

Posted Jun 25, 2016
Pros: Breakfast, facilities, staff.
Cons: landscaping, ease of getting to the hotel, airconditioning/fan
Location: It's Taos, there is tons to do. Shopping, rafting, hiking, museums, skiing, anything you can think of in a small mountain town.
Wonderful Experience! They were so nice and catered to our stay quite well. Left a comment card for improvements for the new owners. Even for the faults it was great to support the local community and not stay at a chain hotel.

Hi Brian, Thank you for sharing about your experience while staying at Blue Sky Retreat. We're glad you enjoyed your breakfast, our facilities and our staff. We expect excellence so your suggestions are already in the works! Since the new ownership in December 2015 we've been learning the land. Each season brings new opportunities to see how and where our native plants grow. We make daily improvements to our 2.5 acre property and have a vision of finding balance between natural xeriscape and pristine, manicured landscaping. We are working with navigation companies to ensure consistent, reliable directions to our front door. We have a limited number of rooms with AC, and each room has an oscillating fan. Thank you again for your support and for taking time to share your feedback. We can't wait to see you again!

Exquisite accommodation

Posted Jun 18, 2016
Should have booked this location for our wedding instead of El Monte down the road. Quiet, quaint and affordable with home cooked meals. Locally run and owned. Hard to get ahold of on the phone though.

Hi Reed, It was wonderful having you and your wife stay with us. Thank you for taking the time to share about your experience and thank you for offering suggestions. Feedback from guests is invaluable, as it helps us see many points of view. Our goal is growth and feedback starts things in motion. We've already updated our breakfast menu to include cold cereal offerings and are making daily improvements to our landscaping. Phone calls will always be returned if a message is left and when we are hosting retreats or events, email is the quickest communication. I've updated our voicemail to reflect this. Thanks again for your support. We can't wait to see you again...for each anniversary!

Interesting old structure.

Posted Nov 5, 2015
Pros: LEAVING IT!! There was a very nice young man for Texas who was very helpful and friendly, not like the owner.
Cons: New ownership
Location: No signs for Witt road.
We made original reservations for 1 night in Sept.2015. I was unable to make the trip because of illness. We rescheduled for 2 nights in October,2015. They were to give us credit from the original reservation to use in October. When we checked out they charged us for 2 nights instead of one. The owner wasn't available at the time, she was too busy moving out. She did issue a credit after I contacted her by phone. That was the good part. She contacted me about 2 days before our reservation date and left a message asking if we were coming even though she had sent me a conformation. She said that my voice mail was the worst she ever heard and it was rude. and it sounded like I didn't want to be around anyone. She is right that I wouldn't want to be around her! I told her she needed to get a sense of humor. When we arrived there was no one at the front desk. After looking around and calling out, we did find our keys on the front desk. (Self help I guess.} The room was clean but very small. There wasn't a comfortablr chair to sit and read, no clock. The toilet made very loud noises when flushed and she said she didn't know what was wrong. The breakfast was OK but very small and not any choices. We had to search to find some one when we went to the dining room. She seemed put out havind to serve us. We were the only people staying there the first night. Overall our stay was not what we expected and aws overpriced. Even tho (The Wicked Witch is Dead} I would not stay again.
