Taos house description

SKI New Mexico this winter from the solid comfort of our great new vacation home.

And plan your next Spring, Summer and Fall vacations for great FLY-FISHING and FLOATING (rafting & kayaking) in our cozy canyon house!

This is a beautiful new 2,000 sq ft "Santa Fe style" house in the river canyon between Santa Fe and Taos. Located in an historic apple orchard along the Rio Grande in Rinconada, New Mexico, near Dixon and Embudo, this property is a dream house with a private beach along the river - perfect for fishing, floating and relaxing. This green, tree-filled property is only 20 miles from Taos and 45 miles from Santa Fe, close to all the wonderful museums, shops, restaurants and galleries you love.

Recreation: The property is located on the "Bosque" section of the "Wild & Scenic River" stretch of the Rio Grande, just below the "Race Course" rafting section below Pilar, NM.

- Rafting & Kayaking: Raft or kayak the famous and fun Race Course and float right to your own beach. Or start at the house and float down to Embudo.

- Fly-Fishing: Our home is a prime fisherman's holiday on the Rio Grande itself and within a dozen Rocky Mountian trout streams, both blue ribbon catch-an-release and open fishing. The fishing is great on this stretch of the river; you can fish from shore or wade right in. This 15-mile stretch of the Rio Grande offers some of the finest trout fishing in New Mexico.

- Skiing: The house is near Taos (fantastic, steep skiing) and less than an 1.5 hours to SIX of New Mexico's prime ski areas (Taos, Santa Fe, Angel Fire, Red River, Sipapu, and Enchanted Forest).

The House: This new house has 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms and comfortably sleeps 6 to 8. The upstairs master suite includes a queen bed, a private balcony with views of the river canyon across the orchards, and a stone-tile bathroom with a lovely deep bath tub below corner windows with magnificent views of sky and canyon.

Two downstairs bedrooms are spacious and cozy; one has a queen bed, the other has two twin beds. A queen-sized sleeper sofa is located in the living room for additional sleepers. The spacious Great Room has high ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and is beautifully furnished. It opens to a full kitchen with granite counter tops and all appliances, and onto a patio ("portal") -- a great outdoor living and eating area. The house also has a large laundry room with washer & dryer, and a two-car carport.

With easy access to Santa Fe, Taos, and all the rural artist studios of northern New Mexico, this brand new house offers convenient, cozy and reasonable accommodations for your group in a classic northern New Mexico setting. It is a beautiful and comfortable property for all seasons and moods. We welcome you to our little bit of heaven along the Rio Grande in New Mexico!
