Taos house description

First PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE MAP. They have us located the wrong place so far. Also if this property is booked, check our casita listing #16035 on the same property! Thanks!

This charming rental is cradled at the foot of Taos mountain between Taos and Ski Valley on the Valdez Rim Road. MyHouse is quiet, private, and a truly special experience. This authentic restored 1000 square foot adobe is a local landmark, with a spectacular 360 degree view over the mesa and back towards ski valley. A beautiful 15-minute drive up to the ski lift, 5 minutes to the charming town of Arroyo Seco with great restaurants and shops, and a beautiful 20-minute drive back to town!

This artist's home is very colorful with lots of original art. It features an old kiva fireplace as well as a woodstove (if you know how to use it) and we also have radiant heat, skylights, saltillo tile floors, a sensational bathroom and a high old viga beam ceiling in the living room. Sit on the large portal (porch) in the front to enjoy the cool breezes, or on the charming patio off the kitchen with it's firepit and special view out over the Valdez Valley.

The living room has a banco (a large window seat) with a wonderful view to the West and the sunset over the mesa. A handmade mullioned window adds special interest -- really comfortable furniture, lots of good books, a satellite TV with over 100 channels and wireless internet.

You'll sleep peacefully in the intimate, romantic, charming bedroom -- it still has an old hand-painted paned window typical of original Taos houses, little nicho with a special light, an old dental cabinet for some of your things, a large closet and a really comfortable queen-sized bed.

As you can see, our bathroom is very special too. We think you'll love it!

Our check-in time is 3:00 and check-out is 11:00 -- we know you'll hate to leave!

Pets: The house has a private entrance and huge, separate fenced yard -- we welcome one or two good dogs. Sorry, no cats though.


TO MAKE A RESERVATION: We have a 3-night minimum. please contact the owner directly at anncole@me.com. We are not often home to answer the phone! Thanks.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About the owner: I'm a sometime artist who drove up the canyon road past the hairpin turn, over the top to the view, and into the rest of my life.

              Why the Owner Chose Taos:
              The old adobes of Taos are very special. Handmade, each one unique, with soft welcomng curves. History, romance, an old neighborhood, and astoundiing views.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I fell in love with this place because I walked into the living room, saw the window my parents had in their house in 1929, and was home again! You'll feel at home as well.
