SO NEAR, YET SO FAR is a perfect description of the Chocolate Turtle, a New Mexico Bed and Breakfast located in the picturesque Village of Corrales. This historic farming community is found in the Rio Grande River Valley. Centrally Located for Adventure in the Southwest With easy access to the famous Sandia Peak Tramway, this bed and breakfast is centrally located. Relaxed and low-key Corrales, NM is so serene you'd never know that we are flanked by two of New Mexico's largest cities: Albuquerque and Rio Rancho. We are also just a short drive from Santa Fe. Explore the working art studios, historic sites, restaurants, and wineries of Corrales. Enjoy outdoor activities that include hiking, golfing, biking, and bird watching. Recreation is available year round due to moderate temperatures, 310 days of sunshine and the high desert climate of Albuquerque. Spectacular Views The Chocolate Turtle is a classic adobe-style home with four colorful and private guestrooms. Our portal (that's Spanish for porch) and our patio are surrounded by gardens of fragrant, southwestern plants. The rustic gazebo offers a magnificent view of the ever-changing Sandia Mountains. A continuous parade of wildlife, including bunnies, quails, roadrunners and hummingbirds, provide ongoing entertainment.
