Welcome to the Chocolate Turtle Bed and Breakfast
Centrally Located for Adventure in the Southwest
With easy access to the famous Sandia Peak Tramway, this bed and breakfast is centrally located. Relaxed and low-key Corrales, NM is so serene you'd never know that we are flanked by two of New Mexico's largest cities: Albuquerque and Rio Rancho. We are also just a short drive from Santa Fe.
Explore the working art studios, historic sites, restaurants, and wineries of Corrales. Enjoy outdoor activities that include hiking, golfing, biking, and bird watching. Recreation is available year round due to moderate temperatures, 310 days of sunshine and the high desert climate of Albuquerque.
The Chocolate Turtle is a classic adobe-style home with four colorful and private guestrooms. Our portal (that's Spanish for porch) and our patio are surrounded by gardens of fragrant, southwestern plants. The rustic gazebo offers a magnificent view of the ever-changing Sandia Mountains. A continuous parade of wildlife, including bunnies, quails, roadrunners and hummingbirds, provide ongoing entertainment.
Fresh flowers and delicious chocolate turtles await you in your room. And did we mention the scrumptious breakfasts served on the portal (weather permitting) or in the cheery breakfast room each morning?
A stroll on the walking paths along the nearby historic acequias is like a step back in time as you pass orchards, vineyards, and horse farms. In fact, you may even get to pet a llama being walked by a villager.
The Ideal Location for Weddings & Group Events
The Sandia Mountains afford a beautiful and unique backdrop for weddings, outdoor receptions, and other types of celebrations. Our meeting space provides a great way to retreat from the office hustle. This Albuquerque area bed and breakfast is a perfect choice for the business traveler, offering late/flexible check-ins, early breakfasts, business services and free high-speed wireless Internet.
Whether you live across the country or just over the Rio Grande, the Chocolate Turtle Bed and Breakfast is the perfect getaway.

"We loved our two night stay at The Chocolate Turtle. Keith and Denise were exceptionally helpful hosts, the breakfasts were delicious, and every amenity was considered and provided, front the chocolate turtles in our room, to the sumptuous bed and bath linens. The outdoor sitting area is mesmerizing, with lots of bird watching and the background of the mountain, and the Great Room provided a cozy and comfortable sitting area. It was hard to leave, but also an easy early morning drive to the airport. We would definitely return when in the area of Albuquerque."
