About the property

Beautiful, Historical Home with 3 spacious Bedrooms and 3 Baths

The Hatch House is both modern and historical. Parts of the home date back over one hundred forty years for the true flavor of Taos, yet some additions are only 10 years old to modernize and compliment the original. The Hatch House is surrounded by portals (porches) and gardens. The spacious entryway lends a gracious, warm reception area. The kitchen is the heart of the home and contains a table and chairs for family dinners, yet there is a separate, more formal dining room as well. A traditional kiva fireplace warms the main living room with it's original flagstone floors. A separate den is the entertainment room with flat-screen HD TV/DVD/DVR satellite, as well as a sleeper sofa for extra guests. The Hatch House has 3 spacious Bedrooms and 3 Baths, all bedrooms with fine linens and down comforters.

The main house is 3500 square feet and has a carport. Also available for rental with the Main House or separately is a charming, elegant newer (1994) GUEST house (see Hatch Guest House). An outdoor Garden Hot Tub is shared by the Main House and Guest House. Near the Hot Tub is a half basketball court for a pre-dinner warm-up!

Amenities: Hot Tub, fireplace, WiFi , HD TV, VCR, DVD, microwave, dishwasher, washer, dryer, basketball court, fine linens and fully equipped kitchen. DVR in Main House.

Activities:: Downhill and cross country skiing, hiking, biking, white water rafting, gallery browsing, shopping, museums, llama trips, snowmobiling, Indian dances and ceremonials.

Area:: Located about 8 miles from historical & charming Taos Town and 10 miles from world famous Taos Ski Valley with beautiful views and sunsets. Taos is located a beautiful 2 1/2 hour drive north of Albuquerque International Sunport.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The warmth of your home enfolded us as soon as we walked in the door - just plain wonderful. Jill found the soporific nature of your white couch perfect for an afternoon nap. We're very pleased we were able to meet you, although briefly. Thank you so much for letting us share your home.

If ever you are in the St.Louis area, please let us share some time with you.

Our very best - Ben & Jill

I could live here!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I were on a cross country adventure - our destination being Pebble Beach for the 2010 US Open when we came across this rental on VRBO. We booked the house a couple days to explore the area before we moved on but found we didn't want to leave. So we cancelled the golf trip and stayed for another week! This place is that amazing. From the minute we pulled into the driveway and saw the beautifully landscaped lawns, the views and gardens we knew we weren't leaving anytime soon. Entering the house we could tell that this place was put together so lovingly and with such excellent taste. The art, the furniture, the unique little tchotchkes and personal touches make this place a home away from home. Oh and the beds! So comfortable!!! And the bedrooms are all very light, roomy and airy. I really hated to leave. India was so easy to deal with and is really a cool lady. I will definitely be back. I hope you find this review helpful and book this house for a wonderful vacation, you will not be disappointed.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful old house. We stayed 7 days and

loved every minute. This is a real home where real

people have lived which shows in the decor. The

appliances are old and sometimes quirky (the

microwave is haunted I think :) ), but this adds to

the charm. The place is very large, with two living

areas. The kids used the den, and the adults used

the living room and kitchen. We are ready to go

back next year!

Albuquerque, NM
Car: necessary

Excellent location midway between Taos Town and Taos Ski Valley with easy access to both. On a short, quiet access road, off the main highway. Wide views over Taos Pueblo land to El Salto and Pueblo Peaks, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the Truchas Peaks. Less than a mile away is the charming village of Arroyo Seco, with darling shops and coffeehouses.

The Hatch House and Hatch Guest House are set in lawns and gardens with trees and shrubs. During the warmer months the fountain next to the Main House Courtyard adds it's cheerful splashing to the birdsong! The Garden Hot Tub is on a bricked surface for safety. Next to the Hot Tub area is a half basketball court and basketballs are available. There is a carport attached to the main house. The complex sits on well over an acre of land.
