Property description

This authentic, southwestern house has many features to make your Taos vacation enjoyable and memorable.

Located on two acres, the 1500 sf Casa de Buena Gente (the Good People’s House) offers privacy and convenience. Taos ski valley (25 minutes), Taos pueblo (15 minutes), the plaza (10 minutes), and the KTAO solar station (3 minutes) are all short jaunts away.

Enjoy the vigas and beamed ceilings, the gas log woodstove, or the two kiva fireplaces. The spacious living room and semi-circular dining area will invite your to relax.

The two bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house, ensuring maximum privacy. Each bedroom features picture windows that overlook the enclosed courtyard and surrounding mountains. Resort quality sheets and bedding ensure a restful night so you’ll have lots of energy for the next day’s adventure.

The fully equipped kitchen offers all the conveniences of home and a practical alternative to dining out. The entertainment center features a 42” LED TV, blu ray player, and sound bar.

Sink into the new leather couches and let yourself relax after a busy day. Observe the kaleidoscopic sky as the sun sets, and the mountains of Taos reflect red, orange, and gold light. Life is good!
