Watch dramatic sunsets from the covered portal of our historic adobe home. Three quarters of an acre of aspens, cottonwoods and elms adjoin Pueblo land. It is a pleasant tree lined walk to the historic plaza with it's museums, galleries, shops and restaurants. In the evening prepare a meal on the Wolf range in the cooks kitchen. Relax in front of the kiva fireplace or retire to the cozy bedrooms with full and queen beds.
Our home was one of the original kindergartens in Taos. The house was built sometime in the late 1800's ; adobe walls, vigas in the ceiling ,old wood floors, and kiva fireplace. The bedrooms and the bath all have skylights. These, and the large north facing window in the living room make the house bright and comfortable even during the winter. The large kitchen has been designed with the cook in mind: Wolf range, large island, with chopping block, and antique farm table make this space a favorite gathering spot. Original artwork and selected antique furnishings throughout the house add a warm personal touch. Just to let you know I have had my pets in the house .
The whole house is available to our guests, The property is three quarters of and acre of aspens cottonwoods elms,and silver birches. In the spring and summer there is a large lawn, through which cuts the remnant of one of the 1830's irrigation ditches. Guests have access to the entire property.
I am available if the guests choose, I have been a resident of Taos off, and on since the 1970's. Between college, and graduate school I worked at the ski valley, and have walked, hiked, and skied extensively through out the area. I am more than happy to provide personal interaction with our guests if they so choose We have included in the house a visitors guide to dining, shopping, and sightseeing. This is compiled and writen by my husband and me, based on our experiences in Taos and the surrounding areas.
In Taos the things that most impact the visitor and local alike are; the weather, and the traffic. Weather in the Taos area and New Mexico in general can change quickly. If you hike in the mountains be altitude aware. The traffic in Taos during ski season and the summer can be heavy. Get a good local map, and explore the side streets. There are ways around most bottlenecks, and you get a better feeling for the magic of Taos.
