Casita Chamisa - great B & B

I've never bothered to complete these evaluations, but staying at Casita Chamisa is an extraordinary experience - I say this after having stayed at many B&B's. Why is it so special? The location, just north of downtown Albuquerque, is beautiful, convenient for going to Albuquerque or departing for Santé Fe, and near an excellent Mexican restaurant. The bedrooms are good, hummingbirds plentiful, indoor pool nice, but the very best thing is Arnold, the owner, 1948 West Point graduate, great breakfast chef, raconteur, who still swims a mile a day. He has had a full life and can regale you with wonderful stories, including how his late wife, an archaeologist, turned their home into an archaeological site. You can watch a short video of her and her work, and see some of the artifacts. Oh, the breakfast blueberry pancakes are to die for. Stay at Casita Chamisa and get inspired or rejuvenated by Arnold.
