This property was inherited last year and I am managing it on behalf of myself and my brothers. I live in Berkeley California and own and operate a restaurant there. I visit Taos frequently.
Owner purchased this House in 2008
Why Owner chose Taos Pueblo
This is an inherited home. Our Grandparents, Murl and Lucy Packard built the home in the late 1940's. They owned and operated the Plaza Supermarket, the main grocery store in Taos from the early 1940's to the 1970's. Grandpa served on the Taos City Council and was instrumental in the construction of the Gorge Bridge over the Rio Grande. Our Mother, Rosemarie Packard was president of the Taos Chamber of comnmerce during the 1990's and cared for her parents here untill their passing. Rosemarie passed away in 2008. This house was a special place for all of us, filled with laughter and family gatherings. We hope your stay here fills you with the same good feelings.
What makes this House unique
Taos is fantastic any time of year but especially for its world famous skiing and summer rafting on the Rio Grande. Many cultural activities and an amazing array of neat shops and fine restaurants for a small town. Of course Taos pueblo is a must see. The location of this property is prime. Easy strolling to downtown plaza and all of the shops, taverns and restaurants as well as the local Farmers Market around the corner. Slightly north of the plaza in the more upscale part of town, it provides easy access without the center town traffic jams to north side attractions like the pueblo, ski valley and Rio Grande gorge recreation areas. People who've visited always comment on the peaceful spirit of the house, very clean and tidy. Nice patio for BBQ's and large rear entrance laundry/utility room perfect for staging recreation items like skis and boots and fishing gear. As this home is inherited and paid for, overhead is low and we just want people to enjoy themselves and allow us to maintain it for multiple uses of family and friends. So for the consumer it's a great bargain for a great location! Need extra accomodations? Rent the adjoining Cottage/Casita (vrbo #272424) and this house together for only $200 per night!
Sports & Adventure Activities
The house was perfect for our needs. House was clean and located right in town for easy access to everywhere.
great value and location
Excellent location, walking distance to the park, the plaza, and Michael's kitchen. Big house with plenty of parking in the back and in the front, making it an excellent place for family reunions and other get togethers. My biggest complaint it that they desperately needs some new frying pans. I wanted to cook some eggs for breakfast, and all of the full size pans were unusable. Overall, this is an excellent property, and we look forward to staying here in the future.
Thank you so much for the kind words and constructive criticism. We will stock some new pans. Cheers! Dave K.
Beautiful home. Plenty of room for our three generation family of six.
We had the most amazing time staying at this home. It was just beautiful. David was very easy to work with and got back to us right away when we called. And Yvanne was so pleasant and accommodating. I would recommend that this property to everyone. We will definitely be back!
Thank you for the Kind words. We know they are sincere, for the house has an authentic warm spirit that still glows. So happy to host you! Cheers! Dave K.
The Best place
My stay has been fabulous as always :)
spacious, quite and affordable.
Its a great house for family get together. Love the king size beds in two bedrooms. Also the grill on the spacious back porch was a bonus. Walking distance to plaza and a park across the street...
The house was great, close to all activities and a great value. The beds were comfortable and everything was very clean and the hostess very helpful with all our needs. The back yard was great for our fur baby and we enjoyed the swing on the back porch after our walks to town. I would recommend this place.
