The Inn & The Innkeepers

Shantal and Brantly are avid outdoors people, keen gardeners and enthusiastic students of the culinary arts. Shantal enjoys a wide variety of outdoor activities including skiing, fishing, biking, and urban roller skating.

Shantal also enjoys knitting, sewing, soap making, reading, watching movies, and pottery making. Shantal comes to Taos from a life as a college teacher, prosecutor, crabber, and bar owner. Brantly returns to northern New Mexico after a career in the oil industry with stints in real estate and computers. His love for this part of the world comes from growing up in the Santa Fe area. He loves reading, skiing, hiking and geology.
Winston and Eva, two escapees from the SPCA, fill out the Goodwin household. They are allowed in the first floor common areas of the Inn, but are not allowed into the guest rooms.

The Cottonwood Inn has extensive gardens on its 4 plus acres of land. Both of us are avid gardeners and we keep insecticide and fertilizer use to a minimum. The Inn has fantastic views in any direction. In one direction you can see grazing horses and geese and ducks playing in ponds, in another direction are the stunning Sangre de Cristo Mountains. You can wander down to the Arroyo Seco stream, which runs through the western part of our property. Or you can snooze under a cottonwood out with the birds or read a book in the gardens.
Shantal and Brantly
Our gardens consist of native trees (cottonwood, aspen, piñon pine and western juniper and dozens of fruit trees), but we also have several lush and colorful perennial garden areas. Most of our plants are quite drought tolerant, however we do indulge in a few of the more water needy types.
Our common areas are very large and comfortable for sitting and reading, visiting or watching TV or one of the many videos or DVDs from our video library. The Inn also lends itself to intimate weddings, family gatherings and other small gatherings.
