This historic bed and breakfast is a living, breathing entity crafted with loving care by owner, Paco. The building wraps you up in family history, art and carefuly chosen decor - each room completely unique with a different theme and feel. It is how I always imagined Taos would feel - one of a kind, artistic, inviting, and comfortable...like stepping... More

A great experience staying at the Dona Luz B&B in Taos. Paco and his staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming. I stayed in the Madonna room, which is a very nice room with two beds and a separate sitting room on the second floor. Location is perfect and within easy walking distance of all the major action in Taos. Would... More

Wow...we were SO IMPRESSED by our stay here! The owners have poured their heart and soul into this place, and it shows! So much attention to detail--every room and space is full to the brim of colorful art... We were in Los Angelitos, and it was such a spacious room! There were a ton of different lighting options, too, which... More

Paco is the host and very friendly and helpful. Huge breakfasts, made just for you. Rooms are large and filled with Southwest items. Unique, different, memorable, lots of personality but not trendy-modern at all.

Beautiful building with gorgeous accommodations. Our room was splendid with detailed decor. The bed was comfortable with impeccably clean linens. There was a typical pueblo fireplace in the room which was delightful to take the chill out of the room at night and early morning. There was a heater in the room but we chose to use the fireplace. The... More

It would be hard to overstate the warm charms of La Dona Luz Inn, which made us feel right at home on our first stay in Taos. Paco's roots are right here and are fascinating, and the artistic expressions of this host make each of the rooms in his family's historic homestead are filled with fine taste and hand-accented charm....

The B&B is absolutely gorgeous and service provided was outstanding! I highly recommend staying here! We actually stayed an extra night just to experience more of the Inn itself. Here are some photos of the kitchen which was painted by hand by Paco's (the owner) mother. The place is a spiritual retreat!

La Dona Luz is a wonderfully sweet, colorful and quiet Inn less than a block from the Taos Plaza. The interior has thick old beams, artwork on all the walls, there is color every where! The cupboards in the kitchen (which you will have access to) has brightly painted fronts with tile along the walls. The little dining area looks... More
