An inviting alternative to typical hotel lodging, our bed and breakfast in Albuquerque provides guests with downtown accommodations in a private carriage house and two historic homes.
The Spy House is a 1912 Arts and Crafts bungalow that offers all the amenities of a modern hotel with a blend of old-world elegance and full corporate services. This beautiful historic home at one time accommodated five 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 being 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 and 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 each day who provide 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, and of course, you are served a full gourmet breakfast each morning.
In the Spy House, we have tried to not only provide you with all the modern conveniences of today, but also to give you a look at the rich history of the house. To accomplish this, 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.
