Candlelight dinner setting helps you “dine in” in style

Our new candlelight dinner setting option allows you to enjoy our favorite Albuquerque restaurants in style in the comfort of our historic bed & breakfast. We’re all being told to avoid large groups of people crowded together as coronavirus becomes more prevalent. One of the unfortunate consequences is that people are avoiding dining in restaurants, and our restaurant industry is taking a severe hit. Some people still have to travel for various reasons but need to reduce the risk of exposure to themselves and others. Why not try our new candlelight dinner setting option during your stay?
