Casa Escondida Bed & Breakfast is a Santa Fe area bed & breakfast that is located in historic Chimayo, NM. Casa Escondida B&B is located in and is surrounded by the many small villages that host of these wonderful and intimate art studio and gallery tours. Many talented New Mexico artists live and work in the northern NM area. Their homes, galleries and studios dot the landscape along the studio tour route as you ramble along the scenic New Mexico back roads. The art studio tours make for a delightful daytrip during your New Mexico getaway, while a guest at Casa Escondida B&B.
