SO NEAR, YET SO FAR is a perfect description of the Chocolate Turtle, a New Mexico Bed and Breakfast located in the picturesque Village of Corrales. This historic farming community is found in the Rio Grande River Valley. Whether you live across the country or just over the Rio Grande, the Chocolate Turtle Bed and Breakfast is the perfect getaway.
The Chocolate Turtle is a classic adobe-style home with four colorful and private guestrooms. 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?
With easy access to the Sandia Peak Tramway, this bed and breakfast is centrally located. The atmosphere in Corrales, NM is so low-keyed and relaxed, you'd never know 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 like hiking, golfing, biking, and bird watching. In our yard, you will discover a continuous parade of wildlife, including bunnies, quail, roadrunners, and hummingbirds. Recreation is available year-round due to moderate temperatures, 310 days of sunshine and the high desert climate of Albuquerque.
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.
Our portal (that's Spanish for porch) and patio are surrounded by gardens of fragrant, southwestern plants. The rustic gazebo offers a magnificent view of the ever-changing Sandia Mountains.
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.
