Arroyo Seco house description

Nestled at the foot of Taos Mountain in the beautiful Sangre de Cristo range, Casa Sofia is one of the oldest adobe homes in the charming rural village of Arroyo Seco. It is a short walk to village shops and galleries. Fine places to eat, including the area's best breakfast burrito and award-winning ice cream at Toas Cow. A 15 minute drive to the world famous Taos Ski Valley and a 15 minute drive to the Town of Taos and Taos Pueblo.

Casa Sofia is newly renovated, equipped with all the conveniences of home and decorated with a multi-cultural mix of arts and crafts from the Southwest. Spacious living room with kiva fireplace; a well-equipped cook's kitchen; 3 bedrooms with queen beds and two baths; two futons for patio/extra sleeping; roof deck with big views all around.

The Taos area offers a host of activities: world-class skiing, hikes to mountain wildflowers and waterfalls, rock climbing, whitewater rafting and kayaking, hot air ballooning, golf, tennis, and mountain biking. Taos Pueblo, a ten minute drive, is the oldest continually occupied structure in North America with tours and several festivals open to the public. You will find excellent museums, restaurants, shops, a cinema, including a weekly art film series, classes, and workshops. The Taos Film Festival takes place in March; the World Poetry Bout in June; the Solar Music Festival in July; the Fall Arts Festival in September; the Balloon Festival in October; and the Winter Holidays are alight with luminarias. To help you plan your stay, visit Chamber of Commerce link below.

We invite you to enjoy our home, cool in the summer and snug in the winter. It is a perfect retreat for starting a book, revising a manuscript, painting a canvas... or doing nothing at all. Climb the stairs or sipapu ladder to the roof deck and sit back for the gorgeous lightshow of a northern New Mexico sunset, and later, look back on your day in the hot tub under New Mexico's famous star-filled sky. Enjoy!


FROM THE GUEST BOOK:

After 2 days of skiing and 2 days of Taos-ing we can't tell you how much we've enjoyed staying here — it's so authentic, yet modern. My wife enjoyed it so much she skipped skiing one day just to hang around, needlepoint and soak in the feel. New Mexico is truly the Land of Enchantment and so is Casa Sofia!
— The A's, Wichita, Kansas

Such a relaxing week — the view is so serene and the bed so comfortable we slept 10 hours each night. It's like living in a piece of art. We appreciate the love and good taste that went into creating such wonderful atmosphere.
— T & K, Silver Springs, Maryland

We are a reunion of high school friends and husbands, celebrating precious friendships with a powwow at Taos Pueblo, hiking, white water rafting and the Santa Fe opera! We have loved the lovely, comfortable setting, the well-stocked kitchen, and that ever-beautiful sky.
— G, D, L and B, Saint Louis, Houston and Cedar Rapids

Wonderful celebrating New Years Eve in front of a roaring kiva fire and a turkey in the oven! We'll be back!
— The G's, Washington D. C.

We had 3 fabulous days of skiing and 4 wonderful nights here. We could not wait to come back everyday to this lovely 'island' of comfort, light, stars, art, good books, and soothing ambience. What a tranquil, yet stirring environment — beautiful views to enrich the soul.
— The J's, Oklahoma City

A fabulous 4 days with breakfasts and sunsets on the roof, breakfast burritos from Abe's, and a heroic hike to Williams Lake and on up to Wheeler Peak. Thank you!
— The B's, Oakland, California

We love this country between Taos and the mountain, coyotes in the starry night, the wide atmosphere and comforting personality of Casa Sofia. Soon again!
— M & C, Bern, Switzerland

What did we love most? The hollyhocks in the garden or the wild roses across the road? The paper bag painting or the oil cloth on the table? The coyote fence or the ladder to the roof? Afternoon thunderstorms or sunset colors or nightly coyote serenades? Thank you for a golden autumn week.
— The S's and the W's, Cape Coral, Florida

The views are incredible, the colors like nowhere else. WE enjoyed horseback riding in the high country and on the Pueblo, and we came home to sunsets from the roof and marveled at the moon from a soak in the hot tub. Casa Sofia is a joy.
— The P's, New Haven, Connecticut
