Overview

Truchas House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

nestled amongst the pines and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, on the high road to Taos, lies the village of Truchas. The Village was founded in the year 1754 by the King of Spain who granted land to several families (of which many still remain). There are numerous artisans that live and work in the village. Weavers, potters, sculptors,painters,wood carvers, furniture makers, contemporary and traditional. We have many galleries and open studios for you to explore. I have two bedrooms each with wireless internet, the larger of the two has a kiva fireplace and a wood burning stove. Both rooms have a flat screen TV. A small library with internet access (where I serve coffee, tea, fresh juice and homemade biscuits and jams) also has a wood burning stove for those chilly winter mornings. Down comforters and pillows are in both rooms. A shared bathroom with new mexican tiles around the shower and sink areas.We do not offer kitchen facilities, there is a refrigerator, microwave and an outdoor barbecue for your use. Restaurants are within a ten to twenty minute drive. Pets allowed (if agreeable with my pets) Laundry facilities are available. Hiking and Biking out the front door. And for those who fish, ski, golf or horse back ride, you can find all of that and much more within a twenty mile range. Santa Fe is 45 minutes south, Ojo Caliente Hot Springs 45 minutes West and Taos one hour north. If you are a writer, an artist or someone who just enjoys the clean mountain air and the beauty that surrounds you, you will find paradise in our home and the magic of Truchas and Northern New Mexico.

When you look at the photo for NNMG you can't even imagine the loveliness, tranquility and serenity behind this wonderful B&B pic until you are there. It was a beautiful stay like no other. We have family in the area and was seeking out a place that would feel comfortable (but don't make that your excuse to come to Truchas!). We lived in NM for many years and so sad that it was a place not visited before outside of Santa Fe and Taos. Lorey's NNMG was so special it is hard to put into words. I felt like I had come home. Lorey took care to ensure that we were accommodated in every way starting with making the reservation, to the welcome bottle of wine. Each morning like clockwork there was robust coffee, teas and hot fresh muffins with every amenity (jams, butter and honey) with fresh yogurt and fruit, to a gracious goodnight greeting with everything in between from the day! Was lucky enough that Lorey shared her homegrown tomatoes and lettuce from her greenhouse! It is priceless how well you will sleep with freshness all around. The rooms and bathrooms are so comfy and spotless (thick comforters, tastefully decorated rooms with candles and fresh flowers.) If you want to stay connected, wireless internet and cable). It is one place when travelling your cell phone works. If you choose to not be connected, there is a library with many books, a cozy fireplace and woodstove to stay warm and very private, and a property to walk your cares away. If information is needed, she provides it and will give you insight. If quiet and respite is what you want, you'll never hear a peep. The town of Truchas and the people there are very friendly too so don't miss visiting the shops and galleries to find treasures from their creative hands to take with you. Just a quick walk away. There are just too many things to list. I can guarantee you will leave but truly never do so since this place and its owner, Lorey (and also our furry friends Luxy and Loo Loo) will stay in your mind and heart. We will be back for sure and know that when we return, we will be remembered and this place will not be forgotten. Safe travels!

We had a very relaxing time here at her wonderful home with views of the mountains and tasty tomatoes from the greenhouse. Everything about the place is of good quality and very artistic. Lorey is also a generous and wonderful host! This is a great way to experience the authentic New Mexico!!

Cures stress, insomnia, ennui, cynicism

  • 5 of 5
...I may be overstating, slightly.

But I want to impart to you how special this place is! I'm a stressed-out freelance writer. My Dad, a New Mexico-obsessed retiree, found Lorey's place on Vrbo. He was delighted by the idea of a small B&B in Truchas, a village which has always intrigued him. I was skeptical, not being a B&B person, and fearing there wouldn't be enough to "do." I've got friends in Santa Fe I'd planned to bar-hop with, art shows I wanted to take in, and I'm usually averse to quiet.

We drove to Truchas from Santa Fe, and Lorey met us on the main (only?) road and we followed her home. As other reviewers have stated, Truchas is gorgeous, and the B&B is a cozy, charming place, with quirky chic, a lack of pretense, beautifully situated. The beds are phenomenally comfortable, the porches are lovely, and the quiet feels fortifying rather than unnerving.

Lorey is friendly, gracious, really funny, and welcomes you without seeming stressed-out or apprehensive at all; she likes having guests. She's a great hostess not only to her B&B, but to this beautiful place. She knows a lot about the region's history, recommended artist's workshops, small galleries, local restaurants.

I'm usually a nocturnal person, very slow to get up. The comfort and deep quiet of Lorey's place had me asleep by 10:30, though and not only conscious at 7:30, but actually happy about it. Dad and I enjoyed great coffee, muffins, yogurt and fruit. I called my friends and told them I'd see them on my next trip, not wanting to disturb the peace to go out and socialize. After the second day, it was honestly hard to leave.

This would be a great place to meet up with friends to enjoy a long weekend of beautiful walks and long conversations. Or to be by yourself, to soak in the quiet and rewire your brain. I think it would be a great place to write. I experienced a New Mexico deeper, stranger, older and more beautiful than I ever had before. I'd go back in a heartbeat, and can't stop talking about Lorey's place in Truchas to other stressed-out friends who may have been to Santa Fe, but don't know what they're missing.

B&B just as good as the first time

This is the second time we have stayed at Lorey's place, and it was as lovely as we remembered. We stayed in the bigger room this time, which is very spacious but still cozy because of the great decorating. The breakfast is still just as good, strong coffee, homemade muffins bursting with fruit, and delicious in season berries with yogurt. I would happily recommend this lovely place again!

Bed and Breakfast --The Way It Should Be

  • 5 of 5
The innkeeper is a wealth of knowledge about local history and worthwhile places to investigate. She is also a very apt and generous hostess. The facilities are private, spacious, well appointed, comfortable, and very charming …much more than we expected.
In addition, her morning offering of coffee, tea, juice, and freshly baked fruit breads was a luxurious way to start the day ...Since returning home, we have already been recommending it to friends.
Well worth the price!

Lovely views, lovely house - a special place

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Lori's lovely B&B over Thanksgiving weekend and it was really perfect. Located in a beautiful spot with great views of the mountains, it's s perfect mid-way location between Taos and Santa Fe on the picturesque "high road to Taos". The rooms were beautifully decorated, Lori has a terrific eye. The coffee was good and strong and the homemade scones and muffins delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are planning on returning soon.
