About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8

Historic Ledoux Street is considered the 'dream location' for living and vacation lodging in Taos, NM. Artist Retreat which was once owned by the late world renowned artist / painter R.C. Gorman, makes lodging there ever more special. This popular sought after 'strolling street' is surrounded by artist's homes, studios / galleries and is an easy walk, from start to finish, being only one block long.

The fully enclosed front yard is lovely for Al Fresca dining, lounging, outdoor summer living and year round hot tub relaxing. Buffered by tall coyote fencing (traditional Santa Fe / Taos style Aspen limb fencing) this lodging treasure assures guests privacy from slow moving cars on the popular one way, one lane Ledoux Street.

Furnished with upscale bedding, mattresses and furnishings, guests enjoy an interesting blend of traditional southwest and contemporary décor.

With a 2 minute walk, guests will find themselves on the Taos Village Plaza and famous Bent Street, both with shops and eateries. Right around the corner, hardly leaving Ledoux Street, are two very popular restaurants with locals and returning guests: The Byzantium and Stella's Italian Restaurant.

The famous Harwood Museum is an easy stroll to the west end of Ledoux street. In addition to housing a major collection of original art from the 7 founding members of the Taos Art Colony back in the 20's, the Harwood also offers classes, lectures and musical presentations of all varieties.

The remaining portion of Gorman's retreat remains a gallery featuring his work A kissing cousin, Inger Jirby Gallery, is directly across the narrow 1 lane, 1 way street. An authentic restored historic adobe, Artist's Retreat offers peaceful quiet Taos lodging within minutes of walking to the Taos plaza, the picturesque John Dunn Plaza shops and famous Bent Street with shops and eateries leading to the famous Taos Inn and Doc Martin's for evening entertainment or daytime front patio social gathering (a local's favorite).

The lovely enclosed courtyard, laced with jumbo pots of flowers, is a true summer time treat and the newly installed enclosed private Hot Tub is available for year round pleasure.

Guests choosing to lodge at Artist's Retreat enjoy the full fledged "Old Taos" living experience, incomparable to any other, but with modern day upgraded facilities on the most sought after street in village of Taos, New Mexico.

Reviewer Comments:

Being from Texas, I was looking forward to cooler weather and I got it. The house is so charming and fit my family and friends' needs to perfection. The house has everything you could ever need--especially the kitchen. The caretaker, Linda, was on top of things at all times. She was so nice to work with and was easy to get to. I would love to return during the winter and enjoy the snow in the mountains and ski.

Reviewer Comments:

The location was excellent, but we found the place not up to par. The rental advertised for 8 people. Not sure how that was to work since we had six adults (not couples) and felt very cramped. Additionally the place was not very clean. The floors were filthy and the inside garbage cans were disgusting to handle as they needed replacing badly. We had to wash every single dish prior to using them as they had not been checked for cleanliness. We felt the requirement to wash towels before leaving absurd. To be greeted with a large list of to do items which was posted on the refrigerator when the place was not clean was really awful. However I am giving three stars for the location.

Reviewer Comments:

This was our first getaway with the kids and grandkids and couldn't have had a better place to stay. The closeness to the Plaza and the size of the house was perfect! We had 5 adults and 3 kids and still had privacy. The patio area was good for the kids to play in as well as a quite retreat for me to read! We have always loved the places we've stayed with Premiere Properties, and this one did not disappoint either!

Reviewer Comments:

Well this place was just about perfect. We were two couples visiting Taos for a long weekend and we're so glad we found this house. It was bigger than we needed, but nice to have the extra room; very clean, including the hot tub; and the kitchen was well stocked with plates, glasses, cookware, etc. Plus, it was great to be just a short walk from the plaza. I would definitely stay here again if we return to Taos, and highly recommend it for small groups or families looking for a nice getaway location.
