Charming Old Adobe Home 2 Bed, 2 Bath Casita

This wonderful 300 yr old adobe home has been recently renovated and is connected by a private courtyard. Adjacent to the RC Gorman Gallery and adjoining Casa de Flores, the Gallery Casita is located on picturesque Ledoux St. just minutes from the Taos Plaza and Bent Street Shops. Attractions on the street include restaurants, art galleries, the Harwood and Blumenschein Museums.

Originally the barn, the front part of the Gallery Casita has beautiful wood vigas, and a cozy fireplace. This 250 sf front bedroom has a queen sized bed, fireplace, cable tv and bathroom with shower.

Across the courtyard, the back part of the casita has beautiful vaulted ceilings, original adzed beams and paint splatters on the floor from years of use as Bill Rane's artist studio. Measuring 900 sf, it has a beautiful new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, new bath shower with colorful talavera tiles, queen size sofabed, and a wonderful bright living area with cable TV and a king sized bed. The back Casita is an open area with the living/dining/sleeping areas adjoining each other. The back Casita has its' own separate entrance from the street.

There is a wonderful private courtyard for relaxing and enjoying the cool Taos evenings.

The front and back casitas can be rented separately for smaller groups or rented with Casa de Flores #61210 next door together for larger groups. Please note - the two bedrooms are in separate buildings - which makes the Casitas perfect for two couples or families with older children.

Pets welcome on approval. Please read our House Rules.

The entrance to Ledoux St is very small and narrow and will not accommodate RV's or campers. Parking is sometimes limited during weekdays and may not be available right in front of the house, but it is always plentiful at night and on weekends.

Why Helen Tracey chose Historic Ledoux Street

We have owned Casa de Flores next door since 2003. The Gallery Casitas add wonderful space, light and room to the homes. We renovated the property in the summer of 2012.

What makes this house unique

Location. Location. Location! This house is close to everything in historic Taos - restaurants, shops, and museums.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time in Taos and this place fit our family of 5 great. The place was charming, clean and the updated kitchen had everything we could possible need. I would recommend this place to everyone. It was better than we could have expected. We hope to be back in the near future. Thanks Helen for all your help.

This property is amazing, pretty as shown

  • 4 of 5

Taos was not our kind of place. We hit a very hot, very dry time. There is only so much shopping one can do. We rafted but since so dry, the water was very low. The whole area looked depressed. This unit is very cozy, great bed, bedding, towels, shower, kitchen, couch... etc, all 1st rate. We enjoyed the little front bedroom since we don't get up at the same time. Set up the coffee maker over there.

It was hot while we where there and neither unit has a/c. It does cool down at night and by 3am I could use a sheet. But, sleeping at 76 degrees and 15% humidity was not hot in the back big room. There are 2 fans. Window in the bathroom helped create a cross breeze.

It would of been too hot in the front little room, but we didnt sleep there.

They do have a swamp cooler you can use. We did not need it. 1 fan in there. Window cross breeze available.

Place safe. Slept with doors open to courtyard with screens closed for more air to get into the place. only doors to street where kept locked.

IF I went back to Taos, I'd stay there again.

Wonderful Taos Casitas!

  • 5 of 5

The casitas are beautiful and comfortable. The pictures on VRBO are spot-on. The location is perfect- one quick walk from the plaza. There are so many thoughtful touches, such as a really well-equipped kitchen and lighting with so much variability. I hope I can stay here again soon.

so cozy !

  • 5 of 5

Rented out both Casitas for 4 persons.Historic significance appreciated.Location very central and very private, never had parking issue.

The main Casita is a large size studio with a king bed, plus sofa bed, fully equipped renovated kitchen and cute shower. Stackable W/D with detergent and softner. It is accessed via the courtyard only. The front unit is a hotel like room with Queen bed and en suite, it can be accessed from the street as well as courtyard.It also has a functioning fire place which keeps it warm.

There are two more units with doors leading to the court yard, not sure who owns them but they did not access the yard.

The fully enclosed cute little court yard is definitely a plus where a family can hang out with their furry friends.

Mattresses and Linen were excellent quality. Recliner was awesome.Enough hot water in shower for all of us. Casa Flores was decorated tastefully

The only suggestions I can provide would be fixing the floor so it would stop creaking with each step ,Fix the light in the tunnel entrance to the courtyard, also a Chiminea in the yard would be a nice touch to complete the experience.

Helen was helpful and quick to answer her phone for any questions I had.

Casa de Flores was the perfect pick to end 2017. The accommodation was 5 star quality, the unit fully equipped and spacious. I will definitely recommend it. It was also a pleasure to work with Helen.

Perfection, as always!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here at least six times and each visit has been perfect! The casitas are always clean and Helen is responsive if we ever need anything. The location is truly one of the best in Taos. Can't wait for our next trip!
