The office of the Suenos Encantados B&B is in the main house of the Rancho San Pablo de Garcia. You will be staying in the Suenos or one of the rooms in La Casa Vieja, but you will need to check in at the main house office. Besides the website, Suenos Encantados B&B also has a Facebook site. To see many more pictures, take a look the Suenos Encantados B&B album on my Shutterfly website for the Jujube Workshop and North Central New Mexico Road Trip that I took on 29 Sep - 4 Oct 2011.
Their rooms come with a "continental" breakfast, which is actually quite substantial. The first one that I had included a breakfast bagel with egg, ham and cheese. I thought that was good but the next morning there was a breakfast burrito with eggs, chile, bacon and potatoes that was absolutely delicious! If you decide to add the full breakfast for $7.00, it will probably be served in the dining room of the main house.
The Frontier Motel is on US-550 at the north end of Cuba, NM. I did not stay there, but saw it on my way to Chaco Canyon. I stayed at the beautiful Suenos Encantados B&B which is a 10 minute drive southeast of Cuba. The Frontier is the best rated motel in Cuba per TripAdvisor. It is also close to two recommended restaurants El Brunos (just across US-550) and Presciliano's Cafe (almost next door on same side of the highway), although I did not try any restaurants in Cuba.
Suenos encantados means "enchanted dreams" and the name definitely fits. It is a lovely, quiet location with wild elk bugling and coyotes yapping in the evening. The beautifully decorated, clean rooms are historic in style but have modern bathrooms, a microwave, and a small fridge. Many of the people who stay at the Suenos Encantados B&B go to Chaco Canyon National Park. It is ~77 miles and 1.5 hours to get there. Chaco is an amazing place and I spent a whole day touring the sites. See my "Legacy of a Lost Culture" VT tips under Chaco Culture National Historical Park. After surviving the 10 miles of washboard dirt road on the route into and out of Chaco, it was wonderful to watch the sunset at Suenos Encantados B&B. The next morning, it was raining a little, so I was worried about San Pablo Road but it turned out to be no problem.

The three La Casa Vieja rooms are located in what used to be the old San Pablo Military Fort and was subsequently the original homestead of the Cebada family. It dates back to the late 1800's. La Casa Vieja has three foot thick adobe walls and a nice "portal" (front porch). La Capilla (The Chapel) is right behind La Casa Vieja. There is a separate off-the-beaten-path tip on La Capilla.
