Very good. Please note that three of us were there for four nights. Poor supply of Kleenex, low on Tp and paper towels. Also, tge oven does not work well; temp about 25 degrees below setting.
Otherwise, very comfortable; good size; nicely furnished, quiet and such a beautiful view. We were very happy.
Talk about a room with a view
We loved the house, especially the view from the bedroom (good also from the dining room!)--we confess to having pulled the two equipales and a makeshift table (rattan box with a cutting board on top to set up our wine and cheese) and just sat there enjoying the view, SO much better than a large TV screen. Thanks for this!
Only drawbacks: one small--no paper towels (Oh and only falvored coffee available--still very minor). One very big for us coming to NM to escape the heat in Texas--no AC and temperatures comparable to the one we left at home. Plus all the window drapes had been left open and the ceiling fans off so it took a while for the house to cool down. We almost left but...we were very happy we stayed when we saw THAT VIEW! We went out to eat the first evening and couldn't stop thinking about what we were missing, so we had our food "to go" and rushed back to "our window seats."
The hot tub looks fabulous but again not even remotely tempting in the summer! We escaped to the ski area on our second day and then left early to explore Carson Forest.
Overall, a pleasant stay. We got to meet our host and he was delightful. Bed was very comfortable. We didn't use the master bath but enjoyed the shower in the 2nd bathroom. Good movie selection to choose from and a comfortable living room.
We will recommend it. Can't say it enough, the view is priceless!
Great location, great views and beautiful home!
The views at this home can not be beat. We met Gerd, on of the owners, and he was very kind. I wish we had more time to stay and enjoy the amenities.
The views are great, the beds are comfortable. The house has three units - this rental, the owner's home and a smaller unit. But it feels private.
A relaxing and peaceful retreat in Taos NM. Thank you to Margo and Nicki for their quiet hospitality while tending both the Hacienda and our guest house.
We really appreciated an opportunity to relax in such a beautiful location.
We had a lovely time. Relaxing, comfortable, beautiful. The hosts were very gracious. The space was great and the location was excellent.
I am glad you enjoyed our guest house. Thank you for treating it as your own home. It is lovely to find guests who care for the property so well.
great time in TAOS
I'd recommend a stay here anytime - its a lovely place and you'll have a fine time! hope I can get back there sooner than later!
