Bed & Breakfast & Apple Pie

Welcome to our country home & traditional bed & breakfast.

We’re located in Old Town Chama, New Mexico just 1 block from the historic Cumbres & Toltec Scenic RR station.

It’s hard to believe that this charming and elegant country house is a large 9 room custom designed and custom built, manufactured home. The huge Victorian front porch is a perfect get-away spot for bird watching or thunder storm watching at any time of day. Hummingbirds visit the cottage gardens and feeders in great numbers May to September. Enjoy your evening apple pie on the Patio Deck by the crackling fire.

Our hospitality is unsurpassed and we specialize in pampering our guests! Chat with us as we prepare a delicious gourmet breakfast for you in our sociable country kitchen. Everything is homemade by Chefs Tom and Mary.

Your Hosts, Tom and Mary Cardin, are Chama’s most artistic couple. Tom’s photographs and Mary’s paintings grace the walls of the entire house. Original paintings, prints and Mary’s original Wearable Art are all available for sale to our guests here and in local galleries. Cardin’s Crossing is available for painting and sewing retreats and classes can be arranged.

Shopping and dining is just a short 1 block stroll from Cardin’s Crossing.
