About the Property

2 Bedroom, 2 bath, light-filled, historic adobe 3 blocks from the Plaza.

In the very heart of Taos, Casa Rosa is just 3 blocks from the Plaza where, in the warmer months, you can dance to live music on Thursday evenings and browse the farmers market on Saturday. Shops, restaurants, museum and parks are just a few minutes walk from the casa. In the winter, leave your car in town and take the shuttle, a block away, to the Ski Valley for a nominal charge.
Casa Rosa has plenty of light, unusual for an historic adobe. It has 2 bedrooms, each with king beds and traditional and beautiful fireplaces that do burn wood but that we fill with candles. We've been told Casa Rosa works well for 2 couples since each bedroom adjoins a sitting room.
The two baths have Mexican hand painted tiles. One comes with a spacious shower that easily fits two, and the second has both tub and shower. The bathrooms in this historic, quirky adobe are not adjacent to the bedrooms.
The kitchen is well stocked -- make breakfast, latkes or Christmas cookies or in the summer bake an apricot tart with fresh apricots from the farmers market or cherries or apples (if you time your visit right) from the tree in the patio.

Enjoy that tarte--- or breakfast or cocktails--- on one of Casa Rosa's two courtyards planted with flowers and fruit trees (apple and cherry)
Off street, private parking.
Also available is our Coyote Guest Suite, suitable for a single, a couple or couple with a child. It is located on the way to the Ski Valley, near Arroyo Seco, about 20 minutes from Casa Rosa. Gorgeous views, gorgeous sunsets.. 1 bedroom with queen bed, bath, microwave and small frig. Large portale with hammock for lounging and reading and enjoying the views as well as table and chairs for meals al fresco. Please inquire.

Nearest Ski
Taos Ski Valley

Car: Not Necessary

Because of its amazing light, Taos has always attracted artists. Gorgeous and varied wilderness surround the town, and Taosenos take full advantage by skiing, biking, hiking, fishing, birding or just sitting quietly and enjoying the quiet. Nature is very much why people come to Taos.

In town there is the farmers market and quirky and interesting shopping, museums and galleries that focus on the many artists who have been drawn to Taos as well as on the Pueblo Indians who predated all.

Taos has great antiquing and flea markets.

The festivals are numerous and varied, from the Feast Days at the Pueblo to the Hispanic Fiesta in the summer to the Wool Festival in the Fall to many art and music festivals. And don't miss the July fourth parade in Arroyo Seco. There are writers conferences and Chamber Music and Blue Grass Festivals.

Food is varied and good. Green chili or Red-- you'll have to choose at the many New Mexican restaurants in town. But there are lots of good restaurants in town to satisfy whatever you may be yearning for whether its sushi, Thai, French or Fusion or Mid Eastern, breakfast or a hamburger.

Taosenos, who are Native Americans, Hispanics, and Anglos, celebrate life.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I'm a New Orleanian who fell in love with Taos many years ago. Taos has been our second home and my family's ever since. We have not only Casa Rosa in town but a smaller guest suite with a private and independent entrance that sleeps 2, plus a child, closer to the Ski Valley, up the mountain from Arroyo Seco on the way to the Ski Valley. Write us if you prefer a less urban or smaller accommodation. See last picture in our photos.

Why the Owner Chose Taos, NM, USA:
Casa Rosa on Martyrs Lane is an historic property. It oozes charm with its Mexican tiled bathrooms, thick adobe walls, adjoining courtyards and its custom iron work wrought in a forge in Questa north of Taos. Look for the iron snakes, frogs, and other garden animals on the windows amidst the iron vines twining up the bars. We simply fell in love with this charming, quirky house. We hope you will too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location: center of Town. 20 Minutes to Nature. Architecture: Historic, charming and quirky. Great Shops nearby, galleries, markets (flea and farmers) Culture: Native American, Hispanic, Anglo Spirituality: Churches, synagogues, mosques... nature Music from classical to blue grass to rock Festivals: Solar to Wool to Pueblo. Art: in museums and on the street. In workshops and festivals. So much diversity and unpretentious sophistication for such a small and friendly town.
