My wife and I spent a Sat night in late May, Elaine's is an East Mountain ( Easter slope of the Sandia's) delight. It is easy to find solitude as well as conversation. Elaine's breakfast was simple and homespun. No in room TV I believe and that is fine for me.
The rooms are very clean and are of log cabin motif and living. The road off of NM 14 is windy and might be a challenging climbing the hill in the Winter.
Elaine's grandson Zach drove (and another party) up &back to Paa-Ko We did not have to worry about the 10 PM drive home and I tipped him fairly.
If you are looking for a relaxed and non pretentious B&B in Cedar Crest then I highly recommend Elaine's. Elaine, herself, reminds me of a family friend that you might share a cup of coffee with and tell a memorable story. Easy living!
