Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our adobe style Taos home is a second home available year round. We fell in love with it over twenty-seven years ago and have lovingly furnished it for family enjoyment with excellent furniture, a well-equipped kitchen, huge patio with Weber grill and kiva fireplace with bancos for outdoor dining and entertaining in season. We moved our fiction library and Chickering spinet piano down to Taos, along with a lot of very good furniture. Our extended family has loved skiing, rafting, gallery visits, fine dining and the unique charm and history of Taos over the years. We believe our guests will love it as well. It is located on a quiet circle within easy walking distance of the Plaza, museums, galleries and fine dining. Our neighbors are friendly and the neighborhood is child and dog friendly.

Our sister's second home is next door, so larger family groups can combine the two homes with proper advance arrangements. They have a hot tub. The mountain and meadow views from our patio are spectacular and our home is well-situated for all the outdoor adventures Taos has to offer.

About Jerry Rice

We are a senior professional couple who love to travel the world and enjoy the outdoors. We fell in love with Taos' unique charm and history over thirty years ago and our extended family has greatly enjoyed the skiing, rafting, hiking, Pueblo, day trips and many other activities over the years. So has our ladylike Labrador, Miss Jackie! We want our guests to discover the magic of Taos and enjoy it as much as we have over the years! Pat and Jerry Rice

Jerry Rice purchased this house in 1987

Why Jerry Rice chose New Mexico

We were already fascinated by Taos. After we found our home and met our great neighbors, we were sold!

What makes this house unique

Our home is only a ten minute stroll to the plaza and is an easy focal point to set out and enjoy all the marvelous things the Taos area has to offer. We really enjoy the mountain view from our peaceful patio, as well as a good steam bath at the end of a hike or skiing. Two of our three bedrooms have king size beds;the third has twin beds. Dogs love our neighborhood.We recently installed a very large "smart" tv in the living room. There are good tvs in the master bedroom and twin bedroom as well.

This home has lots of comfortable seating in the large living room. The kitchen is very well equipped and we enjoyed the outside fireplace at night. Will come back!

What a kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. The kitchen was the most well-stocked kitchen of any place I've ever stayed. It made it easy to cook when we didn't feel like going out. The beds were comfortable and there was lots of sitting room. The steam shower is awesome!

Very comfortable House

  • 5 of 5

We needed a space for 7 adult relatives and this home worked very well. It was convenient that both bathrooms opened to the hall (as opposed to being a masterbath) and 2 king beds is nice. The great room had roomy table for all of us and a wonderful assortment of sofas & overstuffed chairs so we all had comfortable place to sit and relax. The photos actually don't seem to do justice to the nice furnishings.

Being a 3 bedroom, one of our 7 did have to bed on the sofa sleeper in the great room but at least it was a 2nd sofa in the corner so they didn't have to wait for people to get off their "bed" at night.

The kitchen stocked with many of the seasonings for cooking. Almost any utensil we needed was there. The back Patio is enormous and wonderful to gather around a fire.

Due to issues with another house we'd originally reserved, we were panic mode and needed to make this reservation at the last minute. Pat & Jerry, the owners were very responsive to us, answering questions quickly so we could firm-up our plans. They also returned our deposit very quickly.

Comfortable Taos Home

  • 5 of 5

What a spacious, comfortable home that has everything you would need to feel right at home while visiting Taos. Located in a cul-de-sac off a quiet street conveniently located to the plaza and shopping. You'll love all the furnishings inside and a great patio with a fire place for the cool nights. A wonderful vacation home!

Spacious and Beautiful Adobe House in Taos

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this beautiful home over the Christmas break. The house was very comfortable with a great kitchen, stocked with pots and pans and ample herbs for great cooking. It is located in a quiet cul-de-sac within walking distance to old-town Taos. We were six adults and two dogs, and we never had the feeling that we were too close to each other. One bathroom has a great steam room-shower. There was a garage where we could park one car, and the other cars were parked on the driveway. The communication with the owners was quick and informative. There was a TV in the house but we didn't have time to watch, there were many books and some games available, and we lit a fire one night and played the piano (what a great bonus!). We went skiing and hiking and visited Taos Pueblo. We had a wonderful time in Taos and this vacation home contributed 100% to our happiness!
