ReviewsWrite a review
Just back home from a wonderful women's weekend at this truly lovely house in Taos! I now have a new appreciation for why New Mexico is called the Land of Enchantment. Five of us stayed quite comfortably and enjoyed the peaceful wrap-around courtyard with many Southwestern blooms, exquisite architecture and a gorgeous mountain view. The kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed and the two fireplaces made everything cozy. (Even in August, Taos was cool & comfortable in the sunny days and a bit chilly at night.) I would highly recommend this house for a group of friends, for a family (or two families) with children, or as a very romantic getaway for two. It is just dreamy for relaxing in all day and very convenient to more vigorous pursuits, such as hiking, skiing, or shopping on the plaza. Thanks for the great experience! I hope to return sometime soon.

Perfect in every way

My husband and I spent over 3 months in this wonderful house and we already miss it. It lived up to all of our expectations, and more. It is close to the center of town--Plaza and shopping and restaurants, and yet is very private and quiet at the end of a small street. I often rode my bike into town, and this took only a few minutes. The house itself is lovely--inside and out. There a courtyard with privacy. The bedrooms and bathrooms are large and on separate ends of the house. The kitchen has everything one could want for cooking. The dining area is perfect and the living room with fireplace (large) is extremely comfortable. The radiant floor heat and the wood stove in the large, bright sun room provided excellent heat. The owner kept us well-supplied with wood during cold weather, and was available by phone and email whenever we had any questions. This house is full of character and charm. Delightful decor and good taste. Lots of closet space--more than enough. An extremely well-thought out house. I could move in for a long time. I will definitely return here if I rent in Taos again. It is a place that all sorts of people would be happy in--skiers, artists, writers, shoppers, short term or long term visitors, people wanting privacy and quiet for work, or people wanting to be close to all of the action. You can't go wrong with this amazing house.

Why the Owner Chose Taos:
We love the location because it is so close to the plaza and all of the fabulous restaurants and bakeries of downtown Taos as well as all of the more than 80 galleries & museums in Taos. We also LOVE to ski and hike and it is very close to go skiing in Taos, only 25 minutes to the ski valley and then we can enjoy the nightlife of Taos.
