Your room is clean, comfortable, & cozy with a king sized bed. Your private bathroom has a claw foot tub and a separate shower (with a steam bath!).
The House: Built in 1898, it's got character - including some funky bits and some awesome bits. We like the large covered back porch, the high ceilings, the creaky old floors, the rubble stone foundation, and the spacious kitchen with a jaunty blue stove.
Us: You'll share the common areas of our home with James, Lori, & Samson (our young dog), and Buster & Fidda (our cats). We keep the pets out of your room, but they hang out all over the house.
- High speed wireless internet available.
- Plentiful street parking, walking distance to several bus lines.
- No smoking inside.
Please contact us if you are interested in staying longer than a few days so we can chat and see if our place will meet your needs.
A historic district near downtown, Huning Highlands is centrally located on Route 66.
Our house is:
- walking distance to nice eats like the Grove Cafe, A&B's Lunchbox, Farina Pizzeria, Hartford Square, Holy Cow and the Artichoke Cafe;
- 1/2 mile to bus/train station, downtown Albuquerque, I-25, Lovelace and Presbyterian Hospitals;
- 1 mile to the west side of UNM main campus (we both walk or bike to campus daily);
- 2 miles to Old Town Plaza and Nob Hill district; and
- 4 miles to Albuquerque Sunport.
We are not a hotel -- this is both a good thing and a potentially inconvenient thing.
We like guests to check-in on their first night by 10pm or so. After check-in, feel free to come and go as you please. We also need guests to communicate with us about their arrival time -- especially if it changes after we have agreed upon a time together.
We have pets. Our happiest guests have seen them as amenities :-)
Our dog is young and sweet and energetic. He LOVES people. There's a good chance he'll greet you with a great deal of enthusiasm and hang around underfoot hoping for pets. Our cats are also very present. Fidda likes to sit on top of the piano in the living room and Buster will often sit in the kitchen sink looking expectant.
A different airbnb may work better for folks who want or need to check-in late or find it a hassle to communicate with us about their arrival plans -- or just don't want to deal with our quirky pets, our quirky selves, and our creaky old house.
The advantages are all the ones that make up the Airbnb experience. We are happy to have you live in our house with us for a while -- borrow a book or DVD from our shelves, use our washing machine and dryer, get up in the middle of the night to get a snack or glass of water, chat with us about your New Mexico adventures, get some loves from our sweet dog Sam -- or just give us a wave and smile as you duck into your room :-)
James and Lori were the most generous hosts that we met on our travels. They were really accommodating and made us feel like we were staying with friends. The room is perfect: big bed, private bathroom with a steam shower. They also left us a full binder of places to eat and things to do in the area as well as in Santa Fe. There are also plenty of places in walking distance to eat at. Their pets are awesome and really sweet as well. I would highly recommend this place.
Wonderful hosts! The house was BEAUTIFUL! The room was perfect, we were only there for the evening and decided not to leave! It was private, quiet, comfortable and relaxing! An antique bath tub and shower with a steam room, all in our private room! Thanks for opening your home and all you offered to us in our short time!
My stay at Lori and James' was simply amazing. The room is quiet, clean and comfortable. It is also an advantage to have your own bathroom. Lori and James are really great host, very friendly and always ready to give you useful tips to make your holidays unforgettable. I can only further recommend them. Thank you guys for this wonderful time in Albuquerque.
We loves James and Lori's place so much. We find every inch of the space to be beautiful, charming, and so well cared for. Everything feels perfectly well-thought-out and placed. The room is beautiful, comfortable, and the bathroom tub and steam shower are a treat that I look really forward to when we stay there and immensely enjoy each time! James are Lori are super generous, accessible, and accommodating.
Their house is by far our favorite Airbnb spot; the space, the cleanliness, and the hosts are of the highest caliber!
Enjoyed my stay with James & Lori, the room was spotless and location fit my needs perfectly. The kitchen was stocked with breakfast items and space was available in the refrigerator for my Items. James and Lori are great people with worldly stories to share. I would not hesitate to stay again when my travels bring me back to ABQ.
I was met by James just when he said he'd be there. The house is very cool, as are the hosts...and let's not forget Sam and Rosie. Too cute!
The room and amenities where even better than I was expecting. I was trying to figure out how I could leave later not to have to leave that super comfy bed! If I'm passing back from Cleveland, It will be a definite stop! Thanks!
What a treat it was to stay with James and Lori! I was welcomed with happy hour treats upon arrival, and provided with a bounty of food for breakfast, including fresh eggs from the neighbors' hens. The bed is dreamy and the location is GREAT. Near the restaurants, coffeehouses, yoga studios…I will be staying here again.
We moved to Albuquerque from the San Francisco Bay Area four years ago and love it here! Lori works as a librarian at UNM and James is studying engineering there. We are busy with school and work during the week, early to rise, early to bed most of the time. James is half-German and loves speaking German when he gets the chance. We are looking forward to hosting folks as they visit our beautiful state.
