Check-in is from 4pm - 6pm.
There are no street lights or public
telephones in the rural areas of Taos (the closest
is 6 miles away) nor do cell phones operate reliably. We also serve afternoon refreshments
during this period making it a lovely time to get acquainted, settle in
and consider your evening's options.
To check-in prior to 4pm, call us early in the day to
confirm that we will be here and that your room will be ready.
Call us if you'll be arriving after

arriving after 6 pm, please call us in advance to let us know. Unannounced late check-ins can be

On occasion, we may have dinner plans. If we know you are
arriving after 6 pm, we can leave a key packet with directions to your room
in the basket hanging to the right of the front door.
