Dolores del Río was probably the most famous Mexican star in the history of cinema. Possessed of an otherworldly loveliness, she was the match of Garbo, Dietrich and Crawford. She was frequently called the “Princess of México.” When she visited San Miguel between films, Dolores usually stayed with her good friend, the great clown, Cantinflas. Del Rio loved it here because, under an oversized bonnet and behind dark glasses, she could wander around the Mercado in the Centro unnoticed. Quite a feat for one of the most public personalities of her age.

About Lynn Carlton

I have always loved to fix and design. When I began my real estate career at 24, I soon realized that the best part of the job was meeting with architects and interior designers and watching as the more artistic elements of construction fell into place. After 13 years in real estate, I built two homes, vacation rentals on magical Orcas Island in Washington State. Then I undertook a major remodel of a cabin on the water. Something clicked during that process of transforming the cabin into a unique work of art; I knew I had found my purpose in life.

Through the next several years, I transformed some 30 rather decrepit homes into fresh, beautiful residences, working tirelessly at the rate of two or three a year. Then I decided to turn my creative attention to designing and constructing very special vacation accommodations. I moved to Mexico, the land of color and craft, and began working there.

The most exciting phase of building a new place is when everything gets pulled together. I love the details, making sure that one thing plays with another in perfect harmony. During the process, I'm absolutely consumed. Each project takes every ounce of my imaginative life -- and I love it.

I enjoy being able to see the possibilities in a wreck of a dwelling. When I first set eyes on a place in need of a make-over, I see what it could be. I can envision how the finished place will look...and that vision guides me.

I work an average of six to eight months on each project, directing a local architect and construction team, supervising every step along the way to make certain my vision is embodied in bricks and mortar, paint and plaster.

Be my guest at one of four different and individually unique accommodations in San Miguel de Allende.

Why Lynn Carlton chose Zona Centro

San Miguel is a beautiful old colonial town. The importance of the arts scene is very alluring. This is 1 of 4 apartments located in this beautiful building, named The Actors' Studios in recognition of Mexicans who became famous international actors

Charming studio near to everything

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at this, the Dolores del Rio apartment. It is a charming, cozy place. Well equipped and great to have purified water in all of the faucets. Check in was easy. The apt is well located near to the market and lots of other shops. Well worth a visit for one or two people.

Our fond memories of San Miguel are largely due to our stay at The Actors Studios. The Dolores Del Rio studio was spotlessly clean, well equipped, spacious and very charmingly decorated while maintaining practicality of use. The service was excellent. The location was ideal for our stay. Markets, shops and restaurants were within walking distance and taxi/transportation service was easily accessible at all times. I highly recommend a short or long stay there and I'm hoping to be back again & again!!!

Good place for a short visit

  • 4 of 5

This unit is off the street at the back of the building and so is quite quiet. It's one big plus is that the entire apartment has filtered water. The unit was comfortable and the staff was very responsive and helpful. Easy walk to the market.
