About the owner: Welcome - and we invite you to experience the magic of Casa Buena Vista!
Why the Owner Chose Taos: Casa Buena Vista is a dream come true!
It was more than 25 years ago when we first experienced Taos...and the magic lives on! And we now call it our companion home - a perfect getaway with 'all mod-cons.'
We love Taos given its beauty, culture and people - rich with art and steeped in history. Home to Taos Pueblo, the Village of Taos Ski Valley and a colorful array of surrounding communities like the charming Village of Arroyo Seco.
We chose to reside in the charming Village of Arroyo Seco given its small New Mexican village atmosphere - variety of restaurants, art galleries and specialty shops - and location [situated majestically below Taos Mountain (and the Taos Ski Valley Canyon) and conveniently between the town of Taos (9 mi) and Village of Taos Ski Valley (9 mi)]. And there are many folktales told in New Mexico about how some towns came to be. There are few, however, which can match the beauty of the tales surrounding the founding of the Village of Arroyo Seco.
