This authentic 300 year old abobe inn, restored to perfection by the current host, remains in the hands of the family. Every room is themed with art, some by the family artists through the generations. The host, Paco, has meticulously added his own art and architecture. He and his able crew give you the Grand treatment. I was filled with...

Staying at Paco's home was a delightful experience. All the rooms are wonderfully appointed with art work and traditional furniture. Paco the owner is very friendly and accommodating. The food is excellent and the people who work there are great. To stay here is to immerse yourself in Taos culture and history. Ask about the beautiful lady's portrait in the...

My wife and I stayed in the Son Risa room and it was a wonderful and relaxing week. You are within comfortable driving distance of 5 ski areas from this B&B. We have skied Taos, Angel Fire, Red River and Santa Fe and love them all. Sipapu is the only one we have not yet skied which is located less...

Without a doubt, this is the best Bed & Breakfast Inn we've ever stayed in. The Inn's multi-generational historical background was absorbing. Never seen an inn so meticulously designed, built, decorated and maintained by its owner. Staff made us feel like part of the family, and the signature breakfast dishes were hearty and delicious. It was as magical as the...

My wife and I were in Taos and were in a vintage store called Treasures and happened to ask the owner Taja if she knew of a place to stay for the nite. She called her friend Paco and he told us he had a room. Wow were we surprised! Paco gave us a tour of all the differently decorated...

We have had the pleasure of staying at La Dona Luz several times over the last several years. We try to get there at least once, if not twice, a year. On our most recent visit, we were excited to share our love of this B n B, Paco (the owner), and Taos with our parents who got married in...

This historic bed and breakfast is a living, breathing entity crafted with loving care by owner, Paco. The building wraps you up in family history, art and carefuly chosen decor - each room completely unique with a different theme and feel. It is how I always imagined Taos would feel - one of a kind, artistic, inviting, and comfortable...like stepping...

A great experience staying at the Dona Luz B&B in Taos. Paco and his staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming. I stayed in the Madonna room, which is a very nice room with two beds and a separate sitting room on the second floor. Location is perfect and within easy walking distance of all the major action in Taos. Would...

Wow...we were SO IMPRESSED by our stay here! The owners have poured their heart and soul into this place, and it shows! So much attention to detail--every room and space is full to the brim of colorful art... We were in Los Angelitos, and it was such a spacious room! There were a ton of different lighting options, too, which...
