A warm, comfortable, relaxed environment is how our guests describe the Chocolate Turtle, an inviting New Mexico vacation spot. Located in the historic Village of Corrales, the one-level, southwestern style home is nestled on one and a half acres, so that the portal and patio face the breathtaking Sandia Mountains. The pastoral setting provides a great escape from your daily hustle - our neighbors have horses, geese, and turkeys - yet our Corrales hotel alternative is just minutes from every shopping convenience you might desire and an array of local and national restaurants.

The B&B is just a short walk from the acequia, a historic irrigation ditch system that runs throughout the Village. Along each side of the acequia there are delightful walking paths that take you past orchards, horse farms, and beautiful southwestern style homes.  You may be greeted by Corralenos riding their horses or walking their llamas.

Southwestern colors - turquoise, pottery, and yellow are among the warm tones that provide the background for the antiques and local art, including Native American pottery, wood carvings, paintings, and rugs that adorn our charming Albuquerque area accommodations. Gardens of native plants and fresh flowers throughout our home and in the guestrooms are a signature of The Turtle.

Another hallmark that continually draws raves from the guests of our Santa Fe area lodging is the delicious hot breakfasts. Much of the year breakfast is served on the portal, where you will be entertained by the resident road runners, quail, and bunnies while you enjoy the scenery, including the ever-changing Sandia Mountains.

Read, watch TV, or gather in the Great Room to chat with your traveling companions or newfound friends. There you also will also find a computer with high-speed Internet available for checking e-mails and printing boarding passes, or if you bring your own computer there's wireless Internet connectivity available. In the cheery breakfast room, you will find an assortment of complimentary snacks, a refrigerator stocked with cold drinks, an individual gourmet coffee system and a teapot for almost instantaneous hot water for tea, hot chocolate, and hot cider. There's also a microwave for your use.
