We are located on a ridge, with great views of the mountains, valley, and passing hot air balloons. When you stay with us, you'll be just a block away from a grocery store, Target and various restaurants. A sports complex park about a 1/2 mile away. The park and ride for Balloon Fiesta is less than 10 minutes away.

Our place is great for couples, solo adventurers, and groups of no more than four.

The space

The bed is queen size and can sleep one or two comfortably. There is plenty of closet space and several drawers available in the night stands. This room has a french door that leads to a deck, where you can sit and enjoy the sunrise and the view of the mountains and valley.

We also offer another bedroom for rent (Rio Rancho Retreat - Room #2) and a 5% discount is offered if both rooms are booked together.

The restroom is down the hall and is shared if there are other guests in residence. If this is the case, please be courteous and do not take long showers -- both to save water in this desert environment and to make sure other guests have access to the bathroom and hot water.

A half bathroom is on the first floor and is available when the shared bath is occupied.

In the morning, a continental breakfast of coffee, juice, and bagels or muffins will be offered in the kitchen.

Guest access

Guests are allowed to access their bedroom, shared bathroom, deck (which may be shared by the household cats), and the downstairs patio. Kitchen access is available in the mornings for a continental breakfast that will be offered. If the family room is not being utilized, guests are allowed to watch television in that room if cleared with host.

Interaction with guests

We will be on hand to check you in and answer any questions. You will be provided with a temporary code to the front door and will be able to come and go as you please during your stay.

We live in the home, but work (either in our home office or outside the home) during the day. You will be provided with our cell number for any questions or problems should we not be onsite.

A perfect house for our Balloon Fiesta this weekend. Jana was so detail oriented in providing details and directions. She has an eye for detail and we had everything that could be required for stay. We felt at home and her cats were lovely. I would stay again if I come back here. ☺

We were traveling to Albuquerque after a long trip through Colorado and camping in Utah. When we walked into Jana’s place it smelled like Home! Jana provided fresh breakfast and coffee and the room we stayed in offered a door to the upstairs deck which we were able to see the hot air balloons fly even for the times we weren’t at the fiesta. Jana offered great tips for things to do, eat and drink in the area and was a great host! Would highly recommend staying here!

I had a comfortable stay at Jana's. She is a great host, provides all the amenities you would want in a B&B like a nice continental breakfast, and is fun to talk to. I would recommend a stay here if you are ever in Rio Rancho.

Jana was a very professional and nice host. She made me feel right at home and very comfortable. This was just the place I needed for my visit to the balloon fiesta. It was also a good location to get to old town. It was only a few minutes by car.
