Taos cabin description

Delightful 2BD/2BA home tucked quietly off of historic Valverde Street and recently redone. A six minute walk to the center of Taos, this green home includes passive solar, a fireplace and a sauna off of the upstairs bathroom.

Walk to the Saturday Farmers Market, historic Taos Plaza shops & restaurants, Taos Library, galleries, restaurants, museums and more. Sunrooms, fireplace, wood floors, sauna and active solar. Beautiful fruit trees & flower gardens. Recent remodeling includes bringing natural gas to the home, activating the solar, new electrical, plumbing, wood floors, appliances, kitchen cabinets, water heaters & more.

Valverde Street is in the historic La Loma section of old Taos. Many of the houses in the neighborhood go back to the 19th century. A stones throw from town, Valverde has a country feel with views of Taos mountain. All the amenities of town and an easy 25-30 minute drive to the ski valley.

The kitchen is fully equipped, and we supply basic staples such as coffee, tea, etc. The house has a new clothes washer and dryer. The house is professionally cleaned after each guest visit, and we provide all linens including sheets, towels, blankets and pillows.

The bed options allow for up to 8 guests with 4 adults and 4 children being of maximum comfort. The upper bedroom with king-sized bed and in-suite bathroom offers the added feature of a sauna and step up walk in shower. The first-floor bedroom (also a master bedroom) has a King bed or two twin beds upon request. Please notify caretaker at time of booking to request twin beds. The living room, with queen sleeper sofa, and a child's foam fold out sleep mat sofa extends sleeping possibilities to 7 guests. In addition, there is a blow up twin mattress that can function in any room that adds up to a total of 8 guests possible.

For outdoor pleasure (in addition to all the flowers) is a gas grill and Weber smoker/fire pit awaiting you under the vine covered latilla arbor. Latillas are Aspen tree limbs that are used extensively throughout the Soughwest. An extraordinary Taos getaway with inviting ambiance inside and out also offers wireless internet, blu-ray and stream capabilities (see below).

The t.v. in the upstairs (master) bedroom is connected to a large outside antenna and gets a variety of digital broadcast stations. It also has a blu-ray/DVD player. There are two t.v.s downstairs, one in the living room and one in the second bedroom. Both have brand new Sony 3-D blu-ray/DVD players (Sony model BDP-S5100) that have full wireless functionality, so you can stream from your Netflix account, Amazon, etc. There is in addition much free streaming content plus the start of a DVD collection for guest use while in residence.

Private, reserved off-street parking is easy to get to and right next to the house which is off the street and very secluded.

The owners are experienced hosts who have put roots down in Taos and strive to make this the most convenient and comfortable Taos vacation lodging experience possible. Cabin de Flores is a guest house for family, friends and vacation visitors looking for a true Taos style place to stay. They are wonderful hosts who want you to come enjoy the uniquely special town of Taos and its environs.

                      Northern New Mexico and Taos provide a unique window into three cultures: Native American, Hispanic and Anglo. The high desert climate is dry, sunny and varied. The house allows for walking into town as well as easy drives to local attractions including the ski valley and the Rio Grande gorge. Taos is very laid back, welcoming and visually dramatic, with lots to see and do in a relaxed atmosphere.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: We are experienced hosts and property owners, who travel frequently. We are committed to making our guest house a wonderful experience for visitors. We live close to the house for anything that you may need yet are carefully respectful of guest privacy. We want you to come back and also want you to refer your friends and family to this very special and unique vacation home.

                      Why the Owner Chose Taos:
                      We think this is a unique property in that it has recently been completely renovated. It is in a quiet, country setting, but only a few minutes walk to the center of Taos. There are pretty views of Taos mountain from the master bedroom and from the street. The house is only 25-30 minutes from the ski valley, so we think it provides the perfect combination of being in town, but very beautiful and quiet, and convenient to the ski valley and other attractions nearby.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      This is a green home with fully modern electric and gas heating systems, augmented by interesting passive solar design features.
