About the property

Town - Walk to Taos Plaza 1/2 block - 18 miles to Taos Ski Valley

Welcome to the true feel of 'Old Taos' in the 100 year old 'Historic' private compound of 'Blue Elk Casa'. In the owner's words she tells us why this home may be just the one you are searching for to enjoy your valuable vacation time:

'In our mini-hacienda you are one block from the down town central plaza with all the wonderful food, art, shopping and museums you could wish for. At the same time your home base is nestled in a totally contained private home that has been hand-painted and crafted with love and which just 'feels good' to be in. We also offer to those family or friends traveling or celebrating together the choice of staying close but of having separate complete spaces when the need or desire arises. The second story unit (Blue Elk Up) has its own private entrance, private open deck, kitchenette, large living room and full bathroom with tub/shower combo. Blue Elk Down has two master bedrooms one with tub/shower combo & the other with walk in shower only. Both units have large enough living rooms for the entire group to gather for meals and visiting. This unique Up and Down separation is ideal for members needing quiet get-away time and space from the hustle and bustle of group activity.

In the afternoon and evening you are footsteps away from some of the locals favorite restaurants and cafe's. At 'Blue Elk Casa' you will be staying in one of the most authentic historic Taos vacation rentals offered in Taos, New Mexico. Come and experience true Southwest charm and architecture with adobe walls, viga ceilings, kiva fireplaces, bancos and nichos! Most important - you are a two minute walk from Taos Plaza and able to enjoy total and absolute privacy from neighbors or passers-by in this serene adobe walled compound.

Reviewer Comments:

Units are not connected in fact they have a wall several doors and access to street between them, ok but the upstairs unit smelled moldy, plus the trash wasn't taken out before us so once we emptied the trash we got some of the smell under control, upstairs has not been swept or vacuumed in a long time, plus the wasps nest so we could not enjoy the outdoor patio upstairs..we all bunked in down stairs and the upstairs was useless to us. Our cars were egged every night. Loved the area, but wish we would have chosen another place to stay.

Reviewer Comments:

My family of 4 adults rented the entire house. Way more room than we needed but what a treat! Loved the space and especially the courtyard. Great spot for morning coffee, reading, visiting and evening relaxing in hot tub. So close to plaza, shops, dining. The house was a great place to gather with other family who were also visiting Taos. Furniture was comfortable and we lived how the house was decorated. Everything you need is here. We would love to stay again. Thank you for the perfect house for our vacation.

The house was cute. We used the downstairs house and upstairs casita. It would have been nice if they connected better. But other than that, it was great. So close to the square! We walked everywhere - to shopping, lunch and farmers market on the weekend.

Blue Elk was a perfect property for our family meet up in Taos! Downstairs featured 2 large bedrooms each with private baths, large dinner table, equipped kitchen plus large family room with fireplace for everyone to gather. The courtyard was very private and the hot tub was used every night...even in the snow! We combined the upstairs with 2 bedrooms, small kitchen and large family room and dining area! Lovely, sunny seated area at the top of the stairs opens to an open terrace! Tons of living spaces to spread out! However, we all gathered downstairs! Literally around the corner from Taos square! My son and his wife are already planning a ski trip with several couples and their kids! We will be back!

Reviewer Comments:

We went for a week at Christmas and loved Blue Elk. We don't want to drive much in snow, so it was great to be a block away from the plaza with lots of restaurants, shops and museums. Would definitely stay again. We were a group ranging from ten to twelve people and it was big enough to hang out together comfortably. Can't say enough good about the whole experience!
