Taos house description

Stay at the Lucky Dog Casa and experience the best of Taos! Enjoy spectacular views of Taos Mountain, the Sangre de Cristo Range, and open Mesa vistas to the west. You can watch falling stars or awesome unobstructed sunsets. This serene, quiet, location feels remote but is just minutes away from world class dining, shopping, and art.

Located just 15 miles from the Taos Ski Valley and 7 miles from downtown restaurants, galleries, and shops, this beautifully appointed 1500 Square foot home features the amenities of a classic southwest adobe home, kiva fireplace, hand plastered walls, saltillo tile floors, viga beam ceilings, and colorful custom tile work, along with all the modern conveniences of under floor heating, a Jacuzzi type tub, full sized washer and dryer, a fully-equipped kitchen, and big screen TV with entertainment center.

The casa has two large bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and direct access to the back portal. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and glorious mountain views. Both beds have high quality pillow top mattresses and are extremely comfortable. For additional guests the sofa converts to a queen size bed.

You can enjoy a soak in the hot bub while taking in the amazing New Mexico sunsets.

There are many fun activities just a short drive from your home base. You can enjoy the culture of Taos, with it's art galleries, shops and eclectic restaurants. Skiing, snowboarding, tubing, rafting, fishing, hiking, or adventuring through one of the many colorful towns nearby, are only minutes from the casa.

You can spend your days adventuring or pursuing your favorite outdoor sport.
Or, you can simply relax and soak in the rich New Mexico scenery. Have your coffee or your lunch outside on the large portal, or sit inside cozy and warm in front of the Kiva fireplace. The experience will be one you'll remember.

We welcome our four legged as well as two legged guests. Our two lucky rescue dogs, Ruby and Shamus, love the mesa. They insist that we return regularly.

Even if you don’t bring your pets, everyone who stays at this casa is a Lucky Dog!

                            My family had a wonderful getaway at the Lucky Dog Casa over the Christmas holidays. Even with 6 adults and 2 dogs we had plenty of room and a very comfortable stay. The heated floors were simply amazing and I don't remember being cold once inside the casa! It also had everything we needed and was just the right distance between the town of Taos and the ski valley. Kerry was a great communicator and promptly refunded our deposit after the rental. Many rentals do not allow dogs so we were so pleased to find a rental that was so accommodating for dogs and in wonderful shape. We would definitely stay here again!

                            This was the best vacation we've had in a long time. This home is just simply wonderful! It is so comfortable and has everything you should need. Any questions we had were quickly answered by the owner or manager of the property. There is also a helpful book in the house that has detailed info on how to operate the electronics, spa, where to eat, shopping, etc. This was our first time to rent a home for vacation and to my surprise, it was a great experience. I must also say that the views from the property are amazing! Make sure to watch the sunsets!

                            This location was perfect for our needs (2 adults and a 6 year old). We were looking to relax and unwind AND also hike, horseback ride and soak in hot springs. The home was exactly as we imagined. Several afternoons we saw rainbows facing the mountains and most nights the sky was full of stars. The kitchen was very well stocked and had everything we needed. It was easy to cook delicious meals. The drive up to Taos was so easy and close. We found both rural unharvested hot springs on the Rio Grande and the luxury spa of Ojo Caliente. We will definitely return!!!!! Thank you for the warm vibes and hospitality. p.s. The coyotes were absolutely amazing!

                            We loved our stay at the casa. Kerry, the owner, was so helpful with any information we needed, and always quick to respond to emails. The house was clean, spacious, and so comfortable. Usually when you come home from vacation you're happy to sleep in your own bed- not this time! I wanted to take the beds at the casa home with me! The hot tub was a real treat, watching the sunset and the cottontail rabbits sneak up to munch on some sage. We heard coyotes every night and saw the Milky Way from the back porch. The Rio Grande gorge is a ten minute drive. Wanted to stay for longer- will definitely be back! Thank you for this PEACEFUL, BEAUTIFUL retreat.

                            Staying at the Lucky Dog Casa in Taos was awesome. The wide open space, mountain views, vistas, hot air balloons, sunsets, and coyotes howling at night just thrilled us.

                            Our stay at the Lucky Dog Casa was simply wonderful—from how communicative Kerry was to the property and it's amenities. We drove from Los Angeles to Taos and nothing could end such a long journey better than sitting in the hot tub watching the stars (we don't see too many in L.A.) while our pups sat on the patio. The house itself was wonderfully New Mexican (this is coming from a New Mexican) and made us feel at home for the weekend. In fact, the photos don't do the property justice. It's peaceful, warm, spacious and has spectacular views.It's truly an enchanted gem.

                            We stayed at Lucky Dog Casa for a girls weekend. Lucky Dog Casa was better than expected. The house is very well maintained. The owners provided everything we needed (kitchen and laundry supplies, paper products, etc.) The property is located on the mesa with 360 degree views. The first day we were there we saw a double rainbow and a shooting star! I highly recommend Lucky Dog Casa. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.

                            My husband and I and our dogs stayed at the beautiful Casa for three weeks and were thrilled with the house and surroundings! The casa was immaculate, comfortable and well equipped. We enjoyed the nice southwestern décor and the views are incredible. Kerry and her casa manager were very helpful and always responsive to our questions. I highly recommend this rental for anyone that wants to experience Taos and the Enchanted Circle area. The casa is perfectly positioned to go to Red River, The Wild Rivers Recreation Area, Taos, and Angel Fire. We hope to return in the future.
