The Greenglass Room - $119/night (Nov. - Feb.)  $139/night (Mar. - Oct.)

The Greenglass Room of our bed and breakfast in Albuquerque, New Mexico is named after David Greenglass, the brother of Ethel Rosenberg, and the individual who has played a part in making this house known as "The Spy House." He and his wife Ruth called this home for over a year in the 40s.

This room is done in a sunny yellow and has a hand-painted border of blue vines winding all around the picture rail. The sitting room to the side was actually used as a kitchen when the house was turned into apartments in the 40s. It still has all of the original cabinets and sink. The counter was replaced with a blue hexagon tile, but everything else is the same. You can use it either as a small study or additional sink area to get ready for your day. All that is missing in this space is the small four-burner stove and refrigerator. The private bathroom with the original large clawfoot tub is across the hall. The blue and white porcelain mosaic tile is new, but it is meant to look original. You will enjoy a long soak in this tub or it can be used as a shower. This is the original bathroom David and his wife, Ruth, used when they were living in their apartment. The tables in the room are also said to be the original tables that David and Ruth used when they were living here. In fact, the one that holds the TV is the table Margaret Freeman said was used by David when he drew up the portion of the atomic bomb that he sold to the Soviet spy, Harry Gold. When you stay in this room, you will enjoy the rich history of a time past.
