Taos cottage description

This little home is beautifully furnished and the best kept secret get away in Taos. The house has a latilla fenced yard with lovely gardens and private parking, on a dead end road in one of the quietest areas in Arroyo Seco. Centrally located between Taos Plaza and Taos Ski Valley, it is a great home base for all the sights and activities in our beautiful area. Please note we do not allow children under the age of 9 due to the steepness of the stairway.

The Casita has a gourmet kitchen furnished with lots of spices and basics plus all the accoutrements including French press, blender, microwave, and both gas and charcoal grills. The living area is attached with a comfy daybed and lots of pillows plus a trundle for sleeping downstairs if you don't feel like going up to the queen loft with gorgeous views of the mountains and even a waterfall! The little sundeck off the bedroom is always the best place to catch some rays, and the beds are bamboo and 600 count cotton sheets with down comforters and pillows. There are 2 TV's, one in the bedroom and a large screen in the living area, plus a stereo-CD-tape player and free WI-FI. There is a big deck with a hot tub, and a few reading nooks under the shade trees in your quiet fenced yard.

There are lovely roads to walk or bike ride from your door, and its only 2 or 3 miles into the charming village of Arroyo Seco with great coffee shops, dining and shopping and even a little grocery store. For bookings over 2 weeks we provide maid service after the 14th day. The serenity and privacy make this an exceptional place to relax and rejuvenate.

                              Year Purchased: 1991

                              About the owner: My husband Joe and I have lived in Taos for over 30 years and love it!

                              Why the Owner Chose Taos:
                              I built this little casita in Taos just before my mother died in 1991. I wanted a small private cozy house that was easy to maintain in a quiet area, its really a dream come true!

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              One of the best qualities of this property is the views and the quiet of the area. The property sits on 1 and a half acres, and because we are in a very rural area the stars at night are unimaginable, and really wonderful to enjoy from the warmth of the hot tub, even on very chilly nights (as long as you don't get your hair wet!)
