Property description

Nestled on a quiet tranquil tree lined street off of Kit Carson Road, Simpson House awaits you. The territorial style house sits behind a totally enclosed fence featuring an antique gate from India. Our well appointed and uniquely decorated home is your oasis in town yet just a walk around the corner to El Monte Sagrado Resort and a short stroll to the Plaza with Galleries and shopping along the way. All high end furnishings are yours to enjoy. Custom details include architectural elements from around the globe, plaster walls, aspen ceilings, hardwood floors, quality art & rugs and premium bedding. Truly a four or five star experience, the down pillows, luxury linens, robes and custom toiletries will enhance your Taos experience. Relax on the covered front porch, grill and dine on the Patio ,and later soak in the the Spa on the deck.


The Taos night sky is indeed amazing! This romantic getaway features a wood burning fireplace, central heat and air conditioning and a well equipped gourmet kitchen. We love to travel in comfort and style and know you will appreciate this cozy retreat...

Why the Owner Chose Taos: We fell in love with the location of this property. The elms and cottonwoods tower over this little dead-end street that is just off of Kit Carson Road. It is quiet and the end of the street is actually all Pueblo Land up to the base of the sacred mountain. You can hear the coyotes there at night. It is also convenient to El Monte Sagrado's famous Anaconda Bar and a short walk to the Plaza.

The Unique Benefits of this House: We love morning and evening on the front porch watching the magpies that live in a tree about 50 feet away. We like the view of the mountain from the patio where we dine in the summer. In the winter we like the fireplace and the smell of pinon pine in the air. Most nights we are there, we soak in the spa with a night-cap and enjoy the marvelous night sky in Taos.
