If you are looking for a sweet place to chill out and relax, you couldn't do better than Canon del Rio. The breakfasts are gourmet. The feeling of "home" is my take away each time I'm there. The staff, well, I can't say enough about the staff. John and Dagna are the cream of the crop when it comes to...

We have a wonderful time at Canon del Rio! Everything is beautiful on the entire property and worth experience. We really enjoyed sitting by the river and taking in all of the scenery, which is just steps from our room. The atmosphere is so relaxing from the music to the decor. All of the little touches made this an incredible...

The most comfortable bed in any hotel I've stayed in. Ever. Unique property with quiet riverside seating areas to allow meditation and introspection. If you want good internet access, Jemez Springs may not be the place for you.

This was our second stay and we're certain to return. We used it as a base for day trips. Our regret was that we did not plan more time to enjoy the property itself. It is a beautiful, relaxing property- a wonderful retreat that is not far from Albuquerque. We stayed in the Navajo room and enjoyed the lovely views...

This was our first time staying at Canon del Rio and we loved it. The owners and staff was friendly, the breakfast was amazing, and our room was quiet and comfortable. The attention to detail in our room and on the grounds really showed that this was a labor of love and not a money making ploy. Would definitely like...

Very nice place on the river with great view of the canyon. Room small but nicely appointed except for two things. The screen was broken so the bugs could get in at night when we tried to cool things down. The bathroom fan didn't work. Breakfast delicious, hostess very nice. Our room, Navajo, is probably the least quiet as it...

Dear Folks, I would like to take this the opportunity to let all guests know, if something is a miss in your room it is best to tell staff or call if it's late. As someone did not realize there was a lock on this screen and forced it open it was broken, we noticed. If we are informed we...

For a quick weekend away, it is difficult to beat Canon del Rio ("CDR") and the natural beauty that surrounds it. This was the second visit to CDR for me and my wife. We came from Albuquerque. The goal? Obtain a zero stress level. Once we hit the tree line on our trip from ABQ, we felt the stress level...

This is our second time at Canon del Rio. We love it for the location, the lovely rooms, the atmosphere, the wonderful breakfasts and the overall ambience. We both had massages this time which were heavenly and restorative. We love meeting new people and this time didn't disappoint. I love to amble around the grounds, taking time to sit at...

Did an anniversary over-night at Canon Del Rio. Wonderful grounds. It was quiet, beautiful and romantic, with a great pool and spa. Then, there was the breakfast with all the other guests. Extraordinary food..we both loved it!

The jacuzzi was decent. The sauna was just right. The breakfast was awesome. The hospitality was commendable. Our first to a BnB. Will do again. The time of year did not allow to use the pool but that's alright.
