Corrales, NM, is a quaint village just a short 20 minute drive from Albuquerque’s Old Town tourist mecca.  With a village population of only 7000 people, there are about 2000 horses in the area (hence the Corrales moniker) and boasts no sidewalks, or street and traffic lights, and only mom and pop boutique stores. With its Southwest-style atmosphere, it’s abounds with great restaurants, and high desert Southwest charm…a lifestyle about which most people can only dream!

The Chocolate Turtle Bed & Breakfast, situated on almost 1-1/2 acres, includes scenic views of the nearby Sandia Mountains and gardens of high desert landscaping habitated by bunnies, quail and roadrunners (Romeo is the head-honcho).  The Occupancy is way above the average occupancy for an inn of this size has location, location, location. In the center of the NM corporate and leisure travel markets, the Turtle enjoys the unusual distinction of being one of only a very few 4 room inns to be considered a Viable business.  With the Southwest colors of a turquoise, adobe, and plum palette, this inn is tastefully appointed with authentic Saltillo tile and the decor of the region.  With such comforts and amenities of an attractive inn, it is no wonder that the Turtle continues to grow in popularity wth repeat guests and event business, resulting in one of the strongest performing 4 room inns in the West.
