“Cozy room, superb hosts, and tasty breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

Steve, Kara, and their family made us feel at home. The inn is super cozy. Our room was much larger than we expected (the Rosenberg had a King bed, small study, huge walk-in closet, and bathroom with 2 sinks). The breakfast was excellent each morning....with a little New Mexico flavor (green chiles) some mornings. Cookies, fruit, and water/soda were always available. Steve and Kara were helpful in providing recommendations (where's the REI?) and sharing the local restaurants (all more than we expected). It was a wonderful base to explore New Mexico, including the Sandia mountains that rise from the edge of town.

We just returned from New Mexico and a highlight of our trip was our stay in the Downtown Historic Bed and Breakfasts of Albuquerque. The warm hospitality, close proximity to downtown Albuquerque, delicious breakfast with regional flare, and inspired decor were perfect! The historical significance of the B & B was fascinating and a bonus! We definitely encourage visitors to add this special B&B to their "must" list when visiting Albuquerque.

Steve and Kara provide all the best for a stay in a foreign or familiar town--near center of downtown Albuquerque, with all the amenities, AND quiet with great food and company.

Room Tip: On line descriptions and pictures are spot on, and very helpful. if unsure, give them a call.

This is our second year returning to one of our most favorite B & B's. Not only are the accommodations superb, but the food is a culinary delight. However, even more than that (as if that wasn't enough), it is Steve and Kara themselves that make us feel like we've come home to visit family. They are welcoming and attentive and are wonderful people. This is a very sweet place, making our stay in Albuquerque always memorable. -- Terry and Rose

We stayed two nights in Albuquerque at Steve and Kara's wonderful B & B at the beginning of our trip to New Mexico and Texas. Spy House is delightful - historically interesting, located well and extremely comfortable. Our bedroom - the Rosenberg room - had everything we could want and the bathroom was also well fitted. Steve and Kara produced wonderful breakfasts and adhered to all dietary requests, even though they hadn't been informed in advance. They gave us loads of information on local sights and were unfailingly helpful and flexible. If we ever visit Albuquerque again, we would certainly return to Spy House.

Steve and Kara have created an oasis of calm close to the city of Albuquerque and the University of New Mexico, and it provides an excellent base for day trips to all the regional sights. The B&B consists of two vintage homes, expertly brought back to life by the hosts, with comfortable bedrooms and charming public rooms. An excellent breakfast is offered in the first floor dining room in each house, and the back yard offers a relaxing environment for reading and sipping wine at sunset. One of the houses was home to one of the most notorious "atomic" spy rings during the 1940s. We will certainly book in when we return to visit our niece who is going to graduate school at UNM.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Rosenburg Room with an excellent shower, large comfortable bed, small office and a...

We were traveling from Arizona to Michigan and have been staying in B&B's. We own a couple of them on Mackinac Island, Michigan (Market Street Inn and Jacob Wendall House). The Heritage House was wonderful. We loved the antique decorations and the window decorations were outstanding. Each room was unique and very well done. We had to leave early to drop friends at the airport, so we missed the breakfast. Steve and Kara put our scones, milk and cereal, which was just perfect for us. We would definitely stay again. The facilities are delightful and perfect for weddings and other celebrations. The back ground is spacious and nicely decorated.

Room Tip: I loved the Ivy Room because we had a balcony but my friends were in the Garden Room and they loved...
