Lovely 1 mile stroll to historic Village of Taos New Mexico. Walk the tree lined sidewalk along historic Kit Carson Road to the charming Village of Taos, New Mexico with its famous adobe architecture, shops, galleries, restaurants, Kit Carson Park. During our glorious summers, enjoy Thursday early evening live music gatherings on the historic Taos Plaza. Year round, take full advantage of an easy 1/2 mile walk to the famous El Monte Sagrado Spa, Restaurant, Lounge for upscale everything. Weekend evenings at El Monte Lounge provide live music and dance and the best bar food ever.

First time visitors to Taos must tour the Taos Pueblo. Join a free guided tour group and hear the fascinating story behind this ancient pueblo. In town, visit Kit Carson's Home, Ledoux Street with artist studios, galleries, the renowned Harwood Museum with original art from the founding artists of the Taos Art Colony in the 1920's. Drive past the Mable Dodge B & B. Walk the grounds. See the famous hand painted windows in Mabel's bathroom which had the 1st flush toilet in Taos. The windows were painted by her good friend D.H. Lawrence - author of 'Lady Chatterley's Lover'.

Out on the mesa, be sure to check out the Millicent Roger's museum. Millicent was a contemporary of Mabel's and friend and rival from time to time. Oh, My! Taos has been ablaze with excitement from the start! And, it hasn't changed! Come and visit. You will be glad you did. It's like going to a foreign country without leaving home soil. However, stay at Alba de Sun Ra for all the comforts of home.

About: Taos gives us everything we need in a vacation place - wonderful restaurants, peaceful ambiance, tons of activities with none of the pretensions of 'vacation spots.' Taos is real, always has been and always will be.

Why Taos:
We love the privacy of our house which is still a short walk over back roads into town (less than 15 minutes!) The access to the wonderful town of Taos and the wonderful design of this house is why we are here.
