Best family-friendly place to stay
Posted 22-Jan-2017 on Hotels
We stayed at the Blue Sky Retreat during Christmas 2016 and we really enjoyed it. This is a historical building with some nice features: each unit has a direct private entry from the outside of the building and the parking is conveniently located close to the building. The breakfast is good and has that "home feel" to it.
However, the best part is that you are not feeling as "strangers" in this B&B. The place is very family-friendly and it feels more like visiting your relatives' house. For example, there was a nice Christmas tree in the main lobby, where Santa Claus came to bring presents to the owners' girls. Because he was expected, the girls left for him some cookies, milk and a nice handwritten note. These small things made this place feel like home.
Also, we really liked the interaction with the other guests and the owners themselves: our girl played with their girls, the owner helped me (twice!) together with other guests to unstuck my 2x4 truck from snow/ice, we had some "small talk" with the owners and the other guests, etc.
Overall, we had a very good experience and only good memories. If you've never stayed at a B&B before (this was our case) or even if you've tried other places before, please give this place a try. I don't think that it will dissapoint you.
We hope to stay here again next time we will go to Taos, NM.
