||Escape to the Chocolate Turtle for a romantic getaway. A beautiful bouquet of flowers that will go home with you will be awaiting your arrival. Begin to unwind - relax and enjoy snacks and beverages - then put your feet up and watch the Sandia Mountains perform their magical transformations.
Instead of going out, munch on an assortment of cheeses, meats with a baguette, fruit, and chocolate-covered strawberries, while enjoying the spectacular night sky of the Southwest along with the sounds of the desert before turning in early.
Breakfasts, which in warm weather are served on the portal, come complete with entertainment by the roadrunners and quail scampering around the yard. If you like you may even have the opportunity to feed the roadrunners!
A couple's massage is the ultimate way to relax. Take a refreshing nap, then tour the Village or explore our local wineries. Enjoy a romantic dinner at a local restaurant.
||Escape to the Chocolate Turtle for a special ballooning adventure. Fresh flowers and chocolate turtles awaiting your arrival are a signature of the Chocolate Turtle Bed and Breakfast. We'll supply the snacks and beverages - then put your feet up and watch the Sandia Mountains perform their magical transformations.
Your hosts are experienced balloon crew members and enjoy talking about ballooning. An early morning breakfast snack will get you started before you head out for your ballooning adventure for two - which includes a traditional first-timers' ceremony with a pin and certificate, followed by a light continental breakfast.
Since ballooning is usually an early morning sport, enjoy a refreshing nap, then tour the historic Village of Corrales, or explore our local wineries. End your day with a gourmet dinner at a local restaurant.
On the following morning, enjoy a full, hot breakfast, which in warm weather will be served on the portal with entertainment by the roadrunners and quail scampering around the yard.
* Package is not available from Sept. 25-Oct. 15, 2011.
