Sandy and Gabriel are welcoming and wonderful hosts. We felt immediately welcomed and comfortable in their friendly inn and thoroughly enjoyed our interactions with them and their other guest. They gave us a great intro to Taos, too, inviting us to an event they were attending and directing us to other local attractions. The Stewart House is right across the street from a great Italian restuarant, a local music venue, and on the road to the ski basin. The breakfast was also great, with more shared conversation around the table. If you want to meet some great Taosenos, and have a comfortable and affordable place to stay, the Stewart House is your best bet.
Sandra stands out for how much heart she puts into her breakfast and as an enjoyable hostess. We really had fun chatting with her and other guests over breakfast.
We absolutely loved our stay at the Stewart House and wished we had booked a couple extra nights there on our CO/NM road trip. The room we stayed in (Ranch Room) was so sweet, had access to it's own little patio space, with a lovely view of the surrounding landscape. Sandy was wonderful and we do hope to go back again with a few family members in tow (they have a barn out back ready for rental...)
