We know you will love it here…we do.
The hotel was originally a private residence that we have turned into a Boutique B&B Hotel. Our guests love it here because it feels like home. You get a key to come and go as you please even after we lock up for the night (please tip-toe after 10pm as some of our guests will be sleeping ?).
Wake up in the morning and have your breakfast made to order when you want. Breakfast is typically 7-10 but we are happy to accommodate what works for you. Have an early business meeting? No problem. Let us know the night before and your breakfast will be waiting on the table at the time you want it.
We cook all our food with fresh ingredients and from scratch…only cans if we have to. We make our bread, tortillas, peanut and almond butters, granola and pancake mixes, salad dressings and sauces from scratch as well as our cakes and cookies for dessert.
Don’t feel like going out for dinner? No problem. We have a menu for lunch and dinner that will satisfy most tastes.
Maybe you prefer a place to curl up and relax at the end of a busy, fun day of touring and sightseeing, or a long day in the office. Enjoy the patios, have a swim in our new pool, watch Netflix in our guest living room or cocoon in your spacious private room with a movie on satellite TV and we will bring your dinner to you. We will get you a drink, and perhaps find you a bit of homemade snacks or dessert before you nod off for the night. It’s what we do every night. We would love it if you joined us

On Good Friday 2017 we had the pleasure of doing a day trip to Leon with some friends to take in the creation of the Sawdust carpets that cover one of the main streets in Sutiaba on the west side of Leon. Resident artists spend all afternoon in the 36 degree Leon heat to create the sawdust carpets in preparation for the evening procession that marks the final carrying of the crosses during the Catholic Holy Week.
Creating these sawdust carpets is a common tradition around the world on Good Friday, The custom originated in Germany and was later adopted by Catholics in Central America. The procession actually walks over the carpets and then later they are all swept up and disposed of.
The carpets are made mostly of wet, colored sawdust and a few other materials that are used to decorate the creations (e.g. glitter). They artists sketch out their creation on a mat of uncolored wet sawdust, usually with a small stick, and then proceed to layer additional colors on top to build their carpet.
This video is a much compressed version of about 90 minutes of total video we took over the 2 hours it took us to walk the 5 or 6 blocks that are used to create the mats. Unfortunately we were not able to stay for the evening procession.
