Private adobe house, 3 Bd 2 ba + sleeper sofa (Sleeps 6-9) King Bed in master
This spacious 3 bedroom 2 bath adobe 2200 sq foot home is 5 minutes from Taos and 20 minutes from Taos Ski Valley. Large windows overlook hundreds of undeveloped native Indian land and have unobstructed sunset and mountain views. The open floor plan is perfect for entertaining and the fully equipped kitchen makes cooking a delight.
The master bedroom has a king bed and other two bedrooms have queen beds. Every bedroom is large and comfortable with reading chairs and great views.
Enjoy the jetted outdoor spa in total privacy on the walled patio or warm up on a chilly evening with the exterior chiminea.
The adobe walls of Tierra Madre are cool in the summer and warm in winter. Tierra Madre was designed with the comfort of guests in mind. An adobe house feels like no other. Heavy beams (vigas) span the ceilings in the traditional manner while thick plaster coats the walls. Warmth is provided by radiant floor heat. Imagine living as the Pueblo Indians have for thousands of years, but with all of the modern conveniences. Yes, you can even bring your own notebook computer and enjoy the free wi-fi and cable television.
You will feel like you have come home as you snuggle under down comforters and build a fire in the Kiva fireplace. Everything is provided from an espresso coffeemaker to comfortable chairs for those afternoons when all you want to do is read a book.
The large master bedroom provides an additional retreat with a king bed, television, jetted tub, large separate shower, reading chair and private door to the patio.
For those of you who can't get enough of the great outdoors the adobe walled flagstone patio overlooks the vast expanse of BIA land (Indian Pueblo land) and is the perfect place to watch shooting stars dart across the dark skies of Taos from the hot tub. Only an occasional cow can be seen from this extremely private getaway. It is obvious why the famous painter RC Gorman chose to live right across the road. This is a place of special beauty.

About Jim Yates
After years of owning our own business we decided it was time for Chapter Two (or three). We lived in Tanzania, Guyana and Ukraine working for the US Peace Corps for about 10 years. As of January 2014 Jim is back in Taos and Anne commutes from Taos to different Peace Corps location around the World on short term assignments.
Jim Yates purchased this House in 2003
Why Jim Yates chose El Prado
We vacationed in Taos in 1990's and fell in love with it. We returned time and time again until We bought a house in 1999 and moved to Taos in 2000. We loved the year round beauty of the mountains, the artists, and fantastic sunshine. We finally found the perfect piece of land to build a custom home and built a home with the views, comfort and privacy as our first 3 priorities. It has BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs)land on 2 sides for maximum privacy. It is located between Taos and Ski Valley , close to everything yet it is a relaxing private place.
What makes this House unique
Sunset views, mountain views. Sitting on the flagstone patio sipping on morning coffee, soaking up the sunshine and the beautiful views. The perfect way to start the day. After a great day of skiing, hiking, hitting the river, biking or taking in some new galleries it is delightful to turn out all the house lights and go out to the hot tub and just sit in the dark with the jets off and watch the bright stars.

Relaxing fun weekend
Exactly what was advertised on vbro. Incredible sunsets from back deck. Comfortable, great hot tub, quiet, already asked for September to return.
Great Location, Spacious Home with Southwestern Flair
We truly enjoyed our 6-night stay at Tierra Madre, with 2 days spent skiing and 3 days of sightseeing (Abiquiu, Ojo Caliente, around the Enchanted Circle) and shopping (in Taos and Santa Fe). The house comfortably accommodates up to 6; we were a party of 4, so it was plenty big enough for us. The kitchen is well equipped. The living and dining areas are nicely furnished, if a bit brightly lit. Overall, this rental property is a good value for the money.
Great stay in Taos area!
Had a fantastic time staying in the taos area! This is a great location and great house and very clean and organized! Would definitely stay here again! Awesome vacation!!! Thank you!!!
This is an attractive, comfortable house with great amenities.
We loved our stay at Tierra Madre. This is a great house, attractively decorated but comfortable and casual. You can watch sunrise from one set of windows and sunset from another (which we did), relax in the hot tub after enjoying nearby hikes in the Rio Grande gorge or at Taos ski mountain (which we did) or take advantage of nearby restaurants, galleries and stores in town (not our thing but maybe yours).
Wonderful house in El Prado/Taos
We had a great stay in El Prado. Jim was very responsive and a wonderful host. The house had all the amenities for a very "homey" experience.
My husband and I have been visiting Taos for over 20 years and Tierra Madre is one of the nicest homes we have ever stayed in!!! The views and location are wonderful. We enjoyed the sunsets on the back patio every night. The kitchen is well equipped and there is ample seating in the living area. Since our son lives in Taos and we were traveling with other couples a large living room to hang out in is a must!!! I would like to keep this gem of a property to myself, but that would not be fair Jim, the owner, who was great to deal with!! We will be back in May and Tierra Madre will be our first choice!!!
Thank you for your appreciation of Tierra Madre. We built the house for the comfort of guests in mind and decorated it to make it feel like your "home away from home".
It is always nice when someone appreciates it and feels at home.
This is a prime location to stay at located in between Taos and Taos Ski valley. Close to Taos for groceries, restaurants, and shopping, yet also close to Ski valley for skiing and forest hiking. Close but so nice with the quiet relaxing location It has BIA (federal land) on 2 sides so there are vast views of sunsets out the back windows or from the patio. Great views of the sunrise and the mountains out the front windows.
