The Chocolate Turtle in the historic Village of Corrales, New Mexico offers delightful Albuquerque area lodging accommodations with southwest style ambience and hospitality. Our bed and breakfast is so rural that our neighbors keep llamas, horses, guineas, and turkeys, and yet we are conveniently located close to the attractions, events, and outdoor activities, especially golfing, of central New Mexico.

An inviting alternative to Rio Rancho, NM hotels, the Chocolate Turtle is an easy travel distance from Santa Fe, less then 30 minutes from downtown Albuquerque, Old Town Albuquerque, and the Albuquerque Airport, and only 1.5 miles from Rio Rancho. Our guests can enjoy all that the area has to offer, while relaxing in tranquility and being entertained by our resident roadrunners, quail, and bunnies.

We are located at 1098 West Meadowlark Lane in Corrales, NM.
