beautiful space with incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

More elevated than nearby Taos, this house is on a high sage field, with views in all directions. The space itself has lots of sunlight and great windows! Amazing views of both sunrise over the mountains and sunset over the vast plains in the other direction. One of the most beautiful locations for viewing this landscape. Hiking in Taos ski valley, Rio Grande Gorge, and Wild Rivers Recreation Area all within reach. Good kitchen for cooking. And Sally was a very welcoming host! Thanks!

Restful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a peaceful getaway. We got just that at the Casa del Sol. The house was neat and clean, well supplied with all that was needed for our stay in terms of cooking and eating utensils and appliances. The views were beautiful out every window. It was quiet and peaceful. The hostess was just right; helpful but not intrusive. The place is out in the country but not far from Taos so that going out for sightseeing or a meal was convenient as well.

Great views and excellent host

  • 5 of 5

Sally was such a good host. The views were amazing. We came here on our first stop on a honeymoon Roadtrip. The house was very quiet and relaxing. We ate at farmhouse cafe for breakfast. Sally recommended and it was delicious. Everything made there is from local farmers. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We will definitely come back to stay!!!!

Perfect Magical Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Casa Del Sol is about seven minutes north of Taos, between El Prado and Arroyo Seco. In two rooms, you have everything you need and a view in every direction. You can watch the sun come up over the mountains on one side and watch it set on the other, and Sally, the owner, has made sure that there is comfortable seating all around. The furnishings invite lounging, and everything, including the kitchen, is thoughtfully appointed without any clutter. The location is "civilized" enough to have WiFi and isolated enough to provide a dark starry night sky. I am already thinking about booking my trip for this time next year.

Amazing views!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here because of the great view of the mountains. We were not disappointed. The casita was clean and well-appointed. My one disappointment was the lack of traditional kiva fireplace inside. Also, I wished that an outdoor fire-ring was provided. My husband and I enjoy sitting around a fire enjoying the night air. Otherwise, no complaints! We enjoyed the location being a little out of town and quiet but still very convenient to everything.
