If you are considering this B&B – look no further. John and Prudy are amazing hosts and made our stay fun and comfortable. When we arrived, unexpectedly, after having made a last-minute reservation on Priceline, Prudy stayed another hour, sorted out several issues with our booking and got us settled in.
The inn is a short walk to the plaza, but is quiet enough to forget the town.
Don’t miss John’s expertly prepared breakfast.
We will stay here again.

Dream Catcher is run by a wonderful couple, Prudy and John, who have found their encore career as B&B innkeepers. The location is walking distance (15 min) to the square, in a secluded area just west of the center. It takes a bit of navigating the fist time. The layout does not feel like a B&B actually more like a cluster of adobes with a main guesthouse. The room we stayed in was well kept and well appointed with enough room for two. It is along with 5 or six others in a garden courtyard with path lights at night.
In our room was a comfy high bed with lots of pillow types, radiant ( tile ) floor heating along with a gas stove for extra chilly nights. The bath amenities included wall mounted dispenser for shampoo, conditioner and soap. Thoughtful extras included a night light, Q- tips, plenty of skin moisterizer, coffeemaker with mugs, glasses & bathrobes in the closet.
The room included a frig stocked with a couple waters, satellite TV ( we had service failures with this), desk, overhead fan / light along with the usual furnishings. You can access the main guesthouse kitchen area any time at night for Kurig coffee or hot water for teas and hot chocolate. They have two jars of cookies for that late night snack as well.
John takes a lot of pride in his hand made cooking and he makes an amazing oatmeal brullee with a crispy carmelized flamed topping as a breakfast starter.Then you can choose from fruit ,a fritata, french toast or what ever else John is inspired to cook. Juices, fresh brewed coffee, & teas will set you up for a day of exploring.There’s a nice feeling of comraderie at breakfast, served from 7:45 – 8:45. We got to know new people every day, and shared stories about our travels.Trudy and John are welcoming and helpful with recommendations about places to visit in and around town.

The Ideal Combination…

It is the very rare B&B that gets the three crucial elements right: a physical plant appropriate for paying guests, great amenities and creature comforts, and — perhaps most vitally — innkeepers suited to the job, who are genuinely pleased to see you and invite you in like family. Nine out of ten B&Bs fall short in at least one of these categories. Dreamcatcher in Taos is the unusual and flat-out delightful tenth.
The secluded “compound” of outbuildings surrounding a central courtyard assures peace and privacy — you’re not staying in the absent college kid’s room, or traipsing through the host’s own living room en route to your bed. The seven rooms are beautifully, tastefully appointed with local art. The separate breakfast/reception room is always stocked with coffee, tea and cookies. And John and Prudy are warm, welcoming owner-operators, generous with time and touring advice and very good at promoting cheerful breakfast-table conversation. Most of us have had the weird, awkward experience of eating a quiet, no-eye-contact B&B breakfast in a hushed, funereal setting, with no contact with other guests; this is not that place. By the end of our two-night stay we had multiple new friends.
Dreamcatcher takes a little finding — it is down a narrow side lane a few blocks from Taos’ central plaza — but the search is thoroughly worth it. Tariff will be somewhat higher than the Hampton Inn out on the arterial, but in this case you get what you pay for and then some. Highly recommended.
Lovely B&B – stay here when in Taos

Dreamcatcher is just a short walk away from the square in Taos. It is comfortable and lovely. John and Prudy are warm and accommodating, Jake, the Inn dog is delightful, and the breakfast was perfect. I look forward to coming back again.

You will experience more that sweet restful dreams when you stay here. The rooms are decorated with the themes of the local SouthWest Native Americans The breakfasts are made gourmet style by the chef, John. Great conversations among the guests at breakfast adds to the comfortable atmosphere of the home. Prudy the hostess,makes you feel like one of the family with her stories of the town and tales of people and things to see…AND homemade cookies available 24/7. She knows some great restaurants too. Jake, the friendly pooch will make you laugh. He is the cutest dog and loves everyone. I have stayed here twice and will be back again many times.
