An inviting alternative to typical hotel lodging, our bed and breakfast in Albuquerque provides guests with downtown accommodations with 2 private cottages and two historic homes.
The Spy House is a 1912 Arts and Crafts bungalow that offers all the amenities of a modern hotel and full corporate services. This historic home at one time accommodated four apartments and was returned to the beautiful home it was originally meant to be by the Grant family. The Spy House got its fame from David and Ruth Greenglass. David was the brother of Ethel Rosenburg, convicted Soviet Spy, who was executed with her husband in the 50s.
Each beautifully restored room is unique in design and appearance. Three of the rooms feature king-size beds, and one room has a queen bed with its own sitting room. All of the rooms feature their own thermostats with central heat and air, private baths, telephones, wireless Internet access, hair dryers, irons and ironing boards, and cable televisions. You also are treated with the gracious attention of your hosts to a variety of snacks in the evening, hot coffee or hot teas. A guest refrigerator in the kitchen is always stocked with a variety of cold drinks. You are served a full gourmet breakfast each morning at 8:30am.
We have a unique variety of antiques in the house from old armor and unique furnishings to family photos. We even have a couple of books and old newspaper articles telling the story of the event in the house. A stay in the Spy House will be a rich history lesson in itself that we look forward to sharing with you. For more details on each of the rooms, click on the photos below.
