The Taos area is abundant with seasonal activities for the whole family. The Casita is located 1 mile west of the wonderful village of Arroyo Seco, 20 minutes north of Taos, 15 minutes from Taos Ski Valley which has some of the steepest and most challenging terrain in the country and where you can access trails to the highest point in the state. The ski valley has some of the most lush and cool creek side trails in the area and only a 15 minute drive from Arroyo Seco. This adorable Casita is lovingly furnished with Asian, South American and Native American touches, original artwork, and all the amenities to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. Cathedral ceilings and traditional vigas give this house a sense of spaciousness and New Mexico character.
Stroll the apple orchard, sip a margarita, a hot cocoa or some iced tea while watching the spectacular New Mexico sunsets on the front porch, or just relax after a day of skiing or hiking. Even at this time of year you can don a fleece jacket and take your coffee or tea to the back portal where you can watch the early morning light play across the mountains as the bunnies enjoy their breakfast. This home combines high quality amenities (such as a very comfortable queen mattress with organic cotton linens and memory foam topper) with family affordability. Whether exploring the town of Taos, the nearby beautiful mountain ranges, or some of the best skiing in the world, Casita Des Montes offers you a cozy, affordable, and accessible home away from home.
The Casita is located on a compound in between 2 other houses on the property. Casa Manzanita and the 'Green' straw bale house right next door are available for a group or family gatherings. All 3 houses feel private and have their own outdoor living spaces. Our guests have enjoyed the beauty of a rural setting without feeling isolated. See # 194842 for details about this property.
The caretakers live offsite but will help in any way they can, or offer advice or information on all things in the area, from where to eat or shop, to the best hiking trails.
If you visit once, you'll want to come back again and again.
