Room & Suite (1)


Step Back Inn is a Victorian Decor, B&B style hotel with each room named after an 1800's pioneer in the Animas River Valley. We are within walking distance fron the World Heritage site Aztec Ruins National Monument, as well as the wonderful Aztec Museum and Pioneer Village on Main Street. There are seven eateries within walking distance, as well as several trails and parks. We have a very safe and friendly community and there are lots of things to see and do while you are in our area. As you start your day we serve homemade cinnamon rolls and fresh juice, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. No rubber eggs here! Our rooms are very quiet and clean and we know you will enjoy your stay with us. Thanks, T. Blancett-owner.

We stayed at the Step Back in 2015 and it rained so hard we were not able to visit the ruins the next day. We finally made it back to see the ruins and stayed here again. The rooms are clean and quiet. There's eating places within walking distance. We did not go down for

This in was very sweet and unique. Rooms were very nice and clean, and staff was wonderful. Cinnamon rolls for breakfast were great. It seemed to be in a very quiet area. Very close to Aztec Ruins National Park which was helpful.
