About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Yahoo Travel named Taos 'One of the ten best mountain towns in the world' Forbes Magazine named Taos number three on its list of America's prettiest towns.

Casita Perdido: Perfect for a ski getaway or just some time alone. Convenient to all Taos has to offer: world-class skiing, shopping, gallery browsing and great restaurants. Enjoy a cozy fire in the hand sculptured kiva fireplace, or just sit on the portal and take in the views of Taos Mountain and the Sangre de Christos. This is the perfect summer or winter get-away retreat.

Built in a natural pueblo style, with natural mud plasters, viga ceilings and beautiful kiva fireplace this home exudes true Southwestern charm. And it is full of original art, antiques, family treasures and Navajo weavings for you to enjoy.

The queen sized antique bed is a family antique and is outfitted with fine linens. If you enjoy cooking, you will love the full size kitchen with gas stove, microwave and large refrigerator/freezer with ice-maker.

You can serve dinner in the separate dining area then build a fire and settle in under one of the antique quilts for a romantic evening. Or go for an evening out to enjoy one of the area’s many fine restaurants. Later, take a walk under the stars or sit in the hot tub and watch the moon rise over Taos Mountain.

Outside is a beautiful flagstone portal with jaw-dropping views. The property overlooks Taos Pueblo land, which, many times is the grazing area for the Pueblo’s mustang herd. The nights are perfect for stargazing in the clear New Mexico air.

And if you absolutely need to keep in touch with the outside world, Casa Perdido has satellite HDTV and high-speed wireless Internet.

Your hosts, Randy and Sondra, live next door to answer questions and help with area information and directions. Casita Perdido is perfect for so romantic getaways… artists looking for inspiration…anyone wanting an unforgettable New Mexico vacation.
