Northern New Mexico Getaway

Bedrooms 2
Property type house


About the property

room has a double bed and is $135 a night

nestled amongst the pines and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, on the high road to Taos, lies the village of Truchas. The Village was founded in the year 1754 by the King of Spain who granted land to several families (of which many still remain). There are numerous artisans that live and work in the village. Weavers, potters, sculptors,painters,wood carvers, furniture makers, contemporary and traditional. We have many galleries and open studios for you to explore. I have two bedrooms each with wireless internet, the larger of the two has a kiva fireplace and a wood burning stove. Both rooms have a flat screen TV. A small library with internet access (where I serve coffee, tea, fresh juice and homemade biscuits and jams) also has a wood burning stove for those chilly winter mornings. Down comforters and pillows are in both rooms. A shared bathroom with new mexican tiles around the shower and sink areas.WE DO NOT OFFER KITCHEN FACILITIES, there is a refrigerator, microwave and an outdoor barbecue for your use. Restaurants are within a ten to twenty minute drive. Pets allowed (if agreeable with my pets) Laundry facilities are available. Hiking and Biking out the front door. And for those who fish, ski, golf or horse back ride, you can find all of that and much more within a twenty mile range. Santa Fe is 45 minutes south, Ojo Caliente Hot Springs 45 minutes West and Taos one hour north. If you are a writer, an artist or someone who just enjoys the clean mountain air and the beauty that surrounds you, you will find paradise in our home and the magic of Truchas and Northern New Mexico.

Keywords: charming, cozy and quiet

For parties larger than 2 people there will be an additional $60 per night charge added to your reservation.

Want to return very good location to Taos and Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

I have already submitted my review this is a second request. Please review your records. Lorey was a great host. She knows the area and the location is right on the Turquoise trail. Her place is very Southwest with dog friendly accommodations. Her breakfast muffins are fabulous. Had a great time.

Charming, confortable, homey. The rooms are beautifully furnished.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it here. Truchas is a wonderful get away, a perfect point from which to explore the Taos High Road. And Laurey’s beautiful place is so nice to return to in the evening, to sit, drink a glass of wine, read....

The Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

So many times when we come to NM, we stay in Santa Fe which is wonderful but we wanted to stretch ourselves and explore the areas north of Santa Fe - and there are many to choose from. We have driven the High Road to Taos before and are always blown away when we get to Truchas, NM. The views of the mountains are breathtaking and the town quaint. So this trip, we decided to stay in Truchas and explore this magical area more.

Staying at Lorey's place, Northern New Mexico Getaway was perfect. She is the ideal balance of being available and giving us privacy. She shared areas to hike, galleries to explore, and little out of the way restaurants within 30 minutes to try (as there are no restaurants in Truchas currently). We not only enjoyed her wit but her place as well. Although attached to her house, it is COMPLETELY private with a sitting area, a nice bathroom (tiled shower), and two separate bedrooms. We only needed one bedroom. It was cozy yet spacious, filled with books, and art (many of her photographs) she has collected over the years. She had a fire going when we arrived and a bottle of wine. Each morning she accommodated the time we wanted our breakfast - we just wanted yogurt and fruit but hear she makes incredible muffins. Coffee, tea, and water bottles are also available. There is no kitchen but she has a small refrigerator.

Thanks again Lorey. See you soon!

Down to Earth at the Top of the World

  • 5 of 5

For most of us, the gateway to northern New Mexico is probably Santa Fe or Taos, but the name of Lorey’s B&B seems to suggest that the tiny village of Truchas should also be considered. We heartily agree. Truchas is located midway between Santa Fe and Taos, and being situated at a high elevation (8000 ft / 2500 m) with breathtaking views of valleys to the south and mountains to the north, it would be an excellent gateway. Ours this time was Santa Fe (two nights in town), and we made a day trip to Taos between our two nights at Lorey’s, but staying first in Truchas, or maybe even exclusively in Truchas, would be an impressive way to experience northern New Mexico, especially for the first-time visitor. Lorey, a long-time Truchas resident, was a wonderful host, the accommodations were perfect (loved the wood stove in winter), and the breakfasts of homemade muffins with fresh fruit and yoghurt, coffee, were delicious, not to mention a bottle of wine on arrival! I did stay once in Truchas 12 years ago, at a different place, and while Santa Fe and Taos have grown since then (try to arrive in Taos in the morning or you’ll get stuck in traffic!), Truchas has hardly changed at all. We happily recommend Lorey’s Northern New Mexico Gateway. (Oops, was that NNM Getaway?? Oh well! My review still stands…) If you would like to read some history of New Mexico before coming, you might like "New Mexico: An Interpretive History" by Marc Simmons (recommended to me by the Brodsky Bookshop in Taos).

A true gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay. The property has all of the comforts of home. Wonderful breakfast of homemade muffins, berries and yogurt. I thought I lost a bracelet and Lorey found it and mailed it to me. We will most definitely return again for a longer stay.
