                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1987

                  About the owner: Our family has lived in Taos for 23 years. We moved to Taos from Louisiana after falling in love with the climate, arts, culture, beauty, world class snow skiing, and unique people. For many years, we have offered our 'Ranch House' to only our closest friends but now offer this incredible experience for you. Staying at the 'Ranch House' you will experience magnificent sunsets, watching cowboys herding cattle, and our own family and friends galloping through the sage brush on horses. You have miles of private property for your leisure and all of us are close by to help make your stay positive. We are in the restaurant business, as well, and understand the importance of local hospitality. We look forward to sharing our spectacular property with you.

                  Why the Owner Chose Taos:
                  My family built their own home in Taos, later purchasing the Mariposa Ranch in order to protect their property from development. It also enabled my family to utilize the property for their leisure, particularly riding their horses without needing to get on a busy road.The 'Ranch House' is the original living quarters on the Mariposa ranch. Most of our family members have lived in it at some point in our lives. My husband, three children, and I spent 8 years in this house. It's very comfortable for young and old, families or anyone looking for a romantic getaway. The Mariposa Ranch is a unique property in Taos. It is protected by Taos LandTrust and American Indian land.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The privacy and original buildings on this ranch make it an incredible experience. We have kept the barns, bunkhouses, pig barns, etc... in their unique, original state. We appreciate the local culture and flavor of Taos and have done our best to maintain that influence on our own property. The unobstructed sunsets, and nearby working cowboys are the highlights for us. And of course, that we have our horses grazing right outside our door. It is conveniently located 12 miles from our ski mountain. We are truly the Land of Enchantment. Upon arrival we provide a bottle of wine, coffee, tea, chips and salsa, and chocolates.
