Best Hotels in Taos
Cottonwood Inn Bed & Breakfast
Enjoy panoramic mountain and mesa views from a B&B with authentic Southwestern charm.
Nestled beneath towering cottonwood trees in rural Arroyo Seco, an artsy village midway between Taos and the Taos Ski Valley, this rambling, luxury adobe inn offers pure tranquility and spectacular nighttime stargazing. Six of the eight individually decorated rooms have fireplaces, and five have private decks or patios from which you can see the Sangre de Cristo mountains rising to the east. The property has trails for walking and bird-watching, and it's just a fifteen-minute drive to the historic plaza in Taos and twenty minutes to find some of the best skiing in the West at Taos Ski Valley. Rooms all have refrigerators, CD players, and DVD players (many also have whirlpool tubs), and guests can also use a common computer with Wi-Fi access, an outdoor hot tub, and passes to a local fitness center. Typical of most rooms are beamed ceilings, skylights, and handcrafted Southwestern furniture. For breakfast, you might sample German-style puff pancakes or tarragon-flavored eggs.
