Hot Tub, WiFi, Cable (with Flatscreen) & Free LD Calling

Whether you are seeking a tranquil retreat for solitary pursuits, a cozy base for daytime ski activities or a romantic getaway, enjoy our beautiful private setting with breathtaking views for less than the cost of an in-town motel room!

Surrounded by sweeping, 40-mile vistas of the Sangre de Christos mountains, our charming, adobe-style studio Casita is situated on a pristine, two-acre lot located just 11 miles from the Taos Ski Valley and 7 miles from downtown restaurants, galleries and shops.

With private entrance and wrap-around deck with hot tub, affording stunning westerly views (suitable for amazing star-gazing!), our Casita is comfortably furnished in Southwestern decor and beautifully appointed with textile art, folk art, Saltillo tile floors (with radiant heating) and Mexican Talavera tile throughout.

Our fully equipped kitchen provides everything you will need for cooking during your stay, including: quality appliances, cookware and utensils, along with a full complement of herbs and spices. Cook with (and drink) our pure, fresh mountain well water!

Enjoy a full bathroom with tiled tub and shower.

Our Casita is ideal for single persons, a couple or a couple with a small child. A queen-sized bed, with a top-of-the-line Simmons Beautyrest pillow-top mattress, silk blanket and quality linens, comfortably accommodates two guests.

A raised twin aero-bed, with heated mattress pad, is available for an additional guest.

Tempurpedic pillows are available upon request.

Perfect location after a days skiing

  • 4 of 5

Lovely Casita at the back of the garage facing west towards the Rio Grande. Wonderful view of the night sky and the hot tub was perfect after a day skiing.

One large room and bathroom, well appointed and cosy with underfloor heating, kitchen had all we needed, and a comfortable bed.

Met Maggie who is delightful and very helpful, and told us a short cut to get to the mountain road, which we used each day.

A short drive to town for supplies and laundromat.

Would recommend to other travellers who want to be away from it all in the peaceful countryside.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

These ladies were more than accommodating. They were both sweet and sincere ppl I am glad I got the pleasure to know. Everything in the Casita was provided in fact more than enough towels, toiletry items, dishes, etc . Plan on staying here again. Also, they are pet ppl which is a big plus for me.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting Taos. The Casita was a wonderful base to use to see all the sites in the area then come back and relax in the peace and quiet of the countryside. We would recommend The studio to anyone wanting a quiet place to stay while visiting the Taos area.

More than expected

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just got home from a vacation in Taos. We feel very fortunate to have been able to stay at "The Casita". Very clean, fantastic views, peace and quiet, secluded...but close to town (only about 15 minutes or so). Maggie was so helpful...her suggestions for our day outings worked out great. The John Dunn bridge, Taos Ski Valley drive, the Rio Gorge bridge, the earthship museum, and the best of all for us was the Enchanted Circle. We had rabbit visitors in the morning and spotted a coyote one evening. Hot air balloons could be seen in the mornings. We would highly recommend Maggie and Mary's casita to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

Incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lovely Casita for three nights in early October. It was our first visit to Taos, and the location was absolutely perfect for exploring the area. It was only a few minutes drive into town, shopping and restaurants. But far enough away to really enjoy the peace, quiet and beauty of the area. We absolutely loved sitting in the hot tub at night under a sky filled with more stars than I have ever seen in my life. Just beautiful!!!

We met Maggie, who was so welcoming and friendly and even got to say hello to their precious little miniature poodle pup.

The Casita is furnished very comfortably, with everything we needed during our stay. We were able to cook a few of our meals and even grilled out on the deck late one afternoon. And everything was super clean and spotless - very well maintained property!

Thank you Mary and Maggie for your hospitality and providing such a warm and comfortable place for our vacation stay in Taos!

40th anniversary get away

  • 5 of 5

Our first experience with VRBO. Had studyed the Taos area motels for hours until we found out about VRBO.com . With in

15 mins of using the site filters we went right to this rental. Everything was as described & the directions to the property were

spot on!!!!!! Taos is a wonderful town with lots to see and do. We had our bank send a check even tho I know pal pal/credit cards

would have been easier...... We did not want the owner to have to pay any extra fees because of us.

The less that is paid with plastic/credit cards saves processing fees.

We were able to see the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge and go to several stores in Taos.

The health food store named CIDS was super! We also had time to relax and enjoy the hot tub and BBQ grill on the private patio.

Very nice place with solitude. Just what we were looking for!

Yes, we are wanting to go back as soon as time allows.
