Charming historic cast stone home cottage nestled in the middle of a neighborhood full of beautiful restored historic homes. This cozy home was once the original carriage house to one of the beautiful restored homes that is know as the “Spy House” because of atomic bomb drawings being sold by David Greenglass, the brother of the infamous Ethel Rosenburg, to a soviet spy. The “Spy House” is also a bed and breakfast where you will be more than welcome to have your breakfast at an additional cost of $10/per person when the B & B schedule permits. It is also within walking distance of many great restaurants.
There is one bedroom with a king-size bed that is next to a large living area that has a daybed that can pull out to an additional king-size bed or two twin beds.
The dining area is in the living area with an antique table that can be used just as a desk or pulls out to easily accommodate four people.
The private fenced backyard wraps around the house and has a bench and small table should you want to sit outside for diner or just to relax.
You are an easy 5-10 minutes from Convention Center, UNM, Hospitals, Old Town, Museums, Zoo, Airport, and even a shorter distance to great shopping, restaurants or even the movie theater. You are also within walking distance to the train/bus stations that can take you to many other great attractions in the Albuquerque area.

About Steve and Kara Grant
Steve and Kara Grant, the owners and innkeepers of the Downtown Historic Bed and Breakfasts of Albuquerque, have been residents of Albuquerque since 1999. When they first moved here, they settled in a typical home with their 3 children. But two years after their fourth little girl was born, they came across a unique house with an amazing story behind it in the downtown area of Albuquerque. The house was badly in need of TLC, but Kara fell in love with the house and Steve soon warmed up to it as well. They spent 6 months making the house livable and moved into it Christmas Eve of 2004. This house was the “Spy House” (ATOMIC BOMB SECRETS TRADED HERE), which they made their home for 5 years. The other building on the same property is the 'Carriage House', which is the one we currently use for VRBO business.
Steve and Kara Grant purchased this Cottage in 2003

Very nice - 5 stars
We enjoyed our stay at the Carriage House. It was very comfortable, well equipped, easy to get to from the main highway. We found nothing to complain about and had a great visit!
Excellent stay! Wonderful hosts! Great location!
I had a terrific stay during my three months at the Carriage House while in Albuquerque for work.
The house and decor are beautiful. The owners really pay attention to detail. Everything was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of cookware, dishes, and utensils. I slept well in the comfortable, king size bed. Bathroom was clean and Wifi is fast. The grounds are charming and peaceful.
The location is great - in the middle of downtown, walking distance to several nice restaurants(I recommend The Grove), convenient access to the interstate. Despite the location it manages to remain remarkably quiet there. The private parking spot for my rental car was also very convenient.
The hosts Steve and Kara are so accommodating, professional, and accessible. They provide exceptional service and are some of the kindest people I’ve ever met. They made me feel I was apart of their family while I was away from my own, and their family and pets are so sweet! During Thanksgiving they even invited me to join them for dinner - so gracious!
I would love to stay here again. I highly recommend staying here!
Wonderful Private Cottage in Downtown Albuquerque
My wife and I stayed here for a week and absolutely loved the place. When we arrived, there were fresh baked cookies and scones and a bottle of wine. The cottage was clean and stocked well with basic items which was nice to not have to think about. The atmosphere really made us feel at home. It was really neat to see the other buildings that are part of the bed and breakfast and the shared private courtyard area was beautiful. It was very quiet while we were there which was exactly what my wife and I were looking for. It was a very easy walking distance from many restaurants, getting around was not difficult. Our experience was a fantastic one! We certainly hope to return in the future!
Needing a place to stay while working in Albuquerque, the Carriage House is the perfect home away from home! It is so cozy and has everything you need to be comfortable for a short or long stay. The B&B grounds are beautiful and you have your own, private parking spot which is great. Steve and Kara are wonderful and hospitable hosts. I highly recommend!
Quirky, private, and beautifully located.
We choose the Carriage House because of it's privacy, location, and private parking spot. It's only a few blocks from downtown Albuquerque, two blocks
to Central Avenue and a few blocks from a freeway ramp. There are a few restaurants within walking distance. We especially enjoyed Artichokes
Restaurant on Central Avenue (3 blocks>.)
We mentioned quirky--another word for historic. The slate patio, steps, terrain and floor levels can be a little rustic. This should not be a problem for most
people, but if you have balance problems you may want to look elsewhere.
We enjoyed our stay here. The owner's were accommodating and the location was outstanding for our touristy one week stay.
I got a job here in ABQ, and knew I'd have to find a place to stay for 3 months. That is FAR TOO long to endure hotel living, and when I found Steve and Kara's B&B I pinched myself. The listing for the Carriage House was beyond charming, and I'm here to tell you the real thing is EVEN BETTER. I had the most personal and comfortable experience in a town I'd never been to before. The accommodations are perfect, and the Grant family incredibly warm. If you are looking for something short OR long term, look no further. Stay here. I promise you will love it!!!!
