Taos cabin description

These charming, historic log cabins and casitas are close to Taos & the Taos Ski Valley & Red River. There are ten cabins and casitas, ranging from 3 bedroom to studio cabins. Please inquire. Perfect for small retreats, reunions & weddings. This 450 sq ft studio An adjacent large log cabin studio provides the perfect creative space for the artist or writer or somebody who wants to kick back, fish and hike. There is a wood fire stove as well as a gas heater. A garden ready to harvest and fresh ranch eggs are an extra bonus in the summer in exchange for some weeding.

We are located 11 miles north of Taos and 30 miles from Taos and Red River ski valleys. The Cabana Blanca sits on 40 acres and the land has creeks, ponds, aspens and cottonwood trees, organic berry orchards and great views of the mountains. The valley is surrounded by national forest. Horse trail rides throughout the San Cristobal Canyon, see link below. A play ground is available for families with children. Pets are negotiable, absolutely no smoking inside.

Taos is home to more than twenty sites on the National Register of Historic Places. The Taos Pueblo has been occupied for nearly a millennium and is considered to be the oldest continuously inhabited community in the Unites States. The Taos Pueblo was added as an Unesco World Heritage Site in 1992 as one of the most significant historical cultural landmarks in the world;

There are many ways to explore art in Taos. Taos is an old art colony since 1899. Some of the artists' studios have been preserved and may be viewed by visitors. Many of the historic sites are homes and studios of artists, including the Mabel Dodge Luhan House,Eanger Irving Couse House and Studio, Joseph Henry Sharp Studios, the Leon Gaspard House, the Couse/Sharp Historic Site and the Ernest Martin Hennings House. On Ledoux Street, just south of the Taos Plaza, are the Ernest L. Blumenschein House and Harwood House.

There are three Art Museums in Taos: Harwood Museum of Art, Taos Art Museum and Millicent Rogers Museum that provide art from the pueblo Native Americans, Taos Society of Artists and modern and contemporary artists of the Taos art colony. The town has numerous art galleries and there are several houses of the Taos Society of Artists.

Taos Ski Valley reminds us of the Swiss/French/Austrian founders' roots blended with the traditions and customs of the local Hispanic and Pueblo Indian cultures. Being the home of extreme skiing, this is just not a resort for experts, with many beginner and intermediate runs. The ski school is one of the nation's best. It also has an excellent children's day care and ski facility, both skiers and snowboarders are welcome.

                      Taos Ski Valley

                      San Cristobal has about 200 families living in this small village. The eco lodge is surrouded by national forest. Great opportunity for fishing and hiking, cross country skiing.

                      Taos is only 10 miles away and the Taos Ski Valley and Red River only 30 minutes away. Taos Ski Valley reminds us of the Swiss/French/Austrian founders' roots blended with the traditions and customs of the local Hispanic and Pueblo Indian cultures. Being the home of extreme skiing, this is just not a resort for experts, with many beginner and intermediate runs. The ski school is one of the nation's best. It also has an excellent children's day care and ski facility, both skiers and snowboarders are welcome.

                      Taos is home to more than twenty sites on the National Register of Historic Places. The Taos Pueblo has been occupied for nearly a millennium and is considered to be the oldest continuously inhabited community in the Unites States.

                      Year Purchased: 1976

                      About: We are health care professionals who have returned to our land we bought 40 years ago. We love to cook and entertain and arrange frequent dinners, potlucks and wine tasting with our guests and friends. Creating an eco friendly environment is an ongoing process. Our berries, fruits and vegetables are organically cultivated. The chickens are free ranging and the growth season has been extended by a newly constructed green house. Most of our casitas and cabins are heated with wood fire stoves. Eventually we would like to be totally off the grid and supply our electricity from wind and solar energy. The eco lodge is part of a recycling program and uses only use eco friendly cleaners, dish and laundry detergents. A grey water system and a large holding pond with well and acequia water are being created to irrigate our expanding Goji plantation..The Eco lodge's water comes from four deep wells, fed by mountain aquafirs. We look forward to seeing you! website: www.taosgoji.com Taos News Article: http://www.taosnews.com/lifestyle/article_5bd7ecac-4d56-11e3-be49-0019bb2963f4.html

                      Why Taos:
                      This is a unique, historical property, dating from the turn of last century. Aldous Huxley and D.H. Lawrence and many contemporary writers lived and wrote here. The proximity to Taos plus the Taos and Red River ski valleys makes this location ideal for the nature lover or ski bumm. There are hiking trails, fishing spots and cross country skiing trails close to the house.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      This was the hub of the valley, The house had a trading post, now serving as the adjacent, attached 500 sq ft log cabin studio, and the post office. Travellers heading north on the gravel road would frequently stop for gas and food and spend the night. The original owners would keep the coffee pot going for friends and customer. They raised quarter horses and there is a creek running throug the propert. Several ponds served as watering holes for horses but are now the breeding ground for water fowl.
