Review #2272615 Charming Casa

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend at Casa Carmen. The place was so charming and interesting since the owner has many of his pieces of art work in the casa.....very clean with wonderful smells and magical lamps. The hosts were so very gracious and welcoming to us and to our dogs. We loved the art studio, the beautiful yard and the walking trail. They have many little sitting areas and unexpected surprises to discover. The upper decks were perfect for watching the sunset with a glass of wine. This was truly a place of enchantment. We would recommend this place to any couple or girls get away.

Skiing, Bicycling, Hiking,Rafting, Ballooning, Fishing, Fine Restaurants, Art Galleries and Museums less than 10 minutes away. Dark skies and millions of stars keep you company at night!

It is most preferable and efficient if you call for availability, questions, assistance and clarifications. In this manner, you receive the highest and most personalized levels of attention to your needs. Further, negotiation of rates and discounts offered only to they who call. I am available seven days a week from 8:00 AM until 11:00 PM.

Please dial 575-770-0393 or 575-758-3320. Save time and money if you call rather than send an email.

Casa Carmen may be best described as the Sunrise and the Sunset House. You are bathed continually with our immense New Mexico sun and artist's light. The 360 degree views are stunning, inspirational, beckoning to mind and spirit. A wonderful feature of the home is the incredible interior and exterior lighting. For the property, a DVD has been produced.

The home was built by the owners of adobe and hand-hewn logs. It is a stunning two level guest house of 1200 square feet. An interior spiral stair case connects the levels. There is also a wide exterior stair.

The second level is designed as a parlor for conversation, sleeping, entertainment area, also with a table that seats four. There are two fantastic decks: The sunrise deck and the sunset deck. Each are spacious and wonderful for dining, entertaining, conversation, and of course viewing the expanse of Taos Valley and Taos Mountain nearby. You can almost touch the mountains!

The first level consists of wonderful sunroom, a bedroom, the country kitchen, the living room with dining area, and a full bath. The first level has south and east facing portals (covered porches) with comfortable outdoor seating.

A new hot tub is yours to enjoy outdoors in sun or starlight. The views are wonderful from its location!

Located in a grove of Aspens and Evergreens and surrounded by 150 acres of private land, raised flower beds and flagstone paths wander through the trees and expansive yard.

The home is decorated with the paintings of Pat Woodall, the owner, and other prominent Taos artists. A delightful collection of folk art also adorns the home. The grounds and gardens have been designed by Carmen Woodall. Many outdoor delights await you with inviting comfort for your leisure. The outdoor lounging areas also have chimineas and a brazier for evening fires beneath the star-filled New Mexico night skies. Out here, there exists no light, noise, or visual pollution.

You are a few minutes from the charming village of Arroyo Seco offering fine restaurants, shops, location of the famous Taos Cow, and a infamous local tavern!! It is only a 10 minute drive to the historic Taos Plaza and a 20 minute drive to Taos Ski Valley for world-class skiing or Hiking, Fishing, Horseback Riding,or Bicycling where Lance Armstrong trains.

Pat and Carmen are nearby to assist you when called upon. Being the charming hosts they are, they will welcome you into their beautiful home for viewing, conversations, refreshments, and provide information about the entire area. They have been residents of Taos for twenty six years. In short, you have a knowledgeable concierge. If you need an easel, one is provided!

Casa Carmen is perfect for one to six guests. A wonderful experience offering authenticity, spaciousness, incredible views, and superb guest services. Pat also offers painting lessons if interested. The guest house is ideal for artists, writers, they who desire rare travel opportunities and being close to outdoor activities. You are, as well, only a short drive from everything a world-renowned art and literary colony offers.

To discover the wonderful features and amazing setting of this home, and to negotiate, it is always best to CALL. I am available to assist you with your questions, travel needs, and complete details related to Casa Carmen and Taos.

Please ring number listed in the first paragraph.

You may contact me seven days a week from 8:00 AM until 10:00 PM. You will be happy you had! My name is PAT and my wife,Carmen. We can offer a refreshing level of assistance relative to your vacation needs and information.

Thank You!

Pat or Carmen Woodall purchased this chalet in 1983

Why Pat or Carmen Woodall chose Arroyo Seco

We built it To Be Natural and Within the Grove of Trees and Gardens! It was built by Pat Woodall over the course of five years with attention to every detail! Mortice, notch and tendon construction of joinery with exposed Douglas Fir Beams, sided Spruce logs and passive solar thermopane Windows on all sides make the views spectacular in all directions. Solar curtains on every window and skylight make it warm and cozy and tie in to the decor. The decor is very special. White Duve covers on each bed, flannel sheets in the winter over dual control heating mattress covers make getting out of bed a little tough but when you do, oh my!

Vibrant paintings adorn the walls between the windows and a 3'x5' simulated fireplace with heated blower is located on the wall upstairs in the large parlor bedroom with a Queen Bed and Single Bed. The heat on the ground floor is hot water radiant heat under character grade Hickory floors in the living room and kitchen coupled with heated marble tile in the bedroom and full bath. Sock feet are warm and welcome. Two open decks await you upstairs, the Sunset and Sunrise Decks and a outside wooden staircase provides access to the downstairs covered wraparound portal with comfortable seating, gas grill and a walkway of a few feet to the 4 person Hot Tub. A 10 foot double door opens onto the wraparound porch and into the Solar Entry and Living Room of the Casa Carmen. Lots of parking and easy access are other amenities.

What makes this chalet unique

A House for you and your family! Privacy, Quiet, Close to everything, Wooded, with Water and So Very Unique! Elegance, Rustic Charm, Warmth, Accessibility to walkways, grove of Aspens, Pinon, Fruit Orchard and Running Water Acequia are just a few!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My two old college buddies and I spent 3 days at the Casa Carmen to catch up and spend time together! What a wonderful time we had being hosted by the Woodalls! Beautiful place, comfortable, charming and so unique that we were delighted when first we say it! We had a tour of all the grounds and the Casa and could only marvel at how fabulous it was... we enjoyed it so much and on the morning we left the French Toast and country ham was the Best! When you take your vacation put this one on the top of the list.

Truly fantastic stay, highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived our hosts were helpful and extremely generous. Half way through our stay they made us some wonderful Avocado Margaritas which we will never forget! We had a very relaxing stay and took on board their recommendations of where to go and what to do as it was our first time in the area. Everything exceeded expectations and we are sure to be back but for longer!
We loved that the house we stayed in was made from a high % of recycled materials, it is so wonderfully put together and the views from the decks are stunning. The home was cozy and the hosts welcomed our "lovely lab" with open arms which was really appreciated.

Thank you so so much for a great weekend!

An idyll at Casa Carmen

  • 5 of 5
Casa Carmen is an idyllic place; the gardens, the house, and the larger setting are all peaceful and very beautiful. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped, and the decor colorful and charming. The high points of our stay included dinner and wine on the sunset porch, relaxing in the hot tub in the evening, lying on the hammocks and hearing the sound of the water running in the irrigation ditch, cooking with freshly picked herbs from the garden, riding bicycles into the town center of Arroyo Seco, and finding a different charming spot in the garden to eat breakfast every morning. Pat and Carmen were wonderful hosts for our stay in July, and made it feel like we were with friends whenever we saw them. We highly recommend Casa Carmen, and we'd love to visit again ourselves.

Wonderful stay in Arroyo!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Carmen is an excellent accommodation in Arroyo Secco, NM. Pat and Carmen really do make the place with their hospitality and generosity. The house is well-appointed with art and antiques and everything one would need and more for a stay in NM. Full kitchen, eating area, comfy living room, excellent linens and PLENTY of extra towels, blankets, and extras make the experience! Two decks are super comfortable as well as back and side porches for hanging around. The grounds around the home offer many sitting areas. Our well-behaved dog was totally comfortable here. We will return!! Thanks Pat and Carmen!

Lovely weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This was a lovely home with all the amenities. My husband and I really enjoyed the views and the location. We went snowshoeing up by the Ski Valley and had dinner in Arroyo Seco. Gorgeous views all around and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make a nice meal. The house has so much artwork and art books, it would be great even if the weather wasn't so beautiful. Pat and Carmen are wonderful hosts and only wish we had more time than just a few days.

Absolutely Special Place!!!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Carmen is truly a special one of a kind place. The house, the art, the grounds, the dog, and the location are perfect. It is about a mile or so outside of Arroyo Seco the town. Their is a trampoline, play fort, hottub and lots of fun outside things to look at and play with for kids. There are two balconies off the 2nd floor. One is facing east to view the sunrise over the mountains and one facing west to view the sunset over the Mesa.

What really sets Casa Carmen apart from the other locations we have stayed at in Taos though are Pat and Carmen. They are warm, welcoming, friendly, and fun. They showed us around, helped us get situated, offered advice on things to do, and helped us make a fire for roasting smores under the stars. Kids really liked that. We even went down to their art gallery and framing shop near the square for a tour. It was fun for both us as adults and our 6 and 4 year old children.

Thanks Pat and Carmen for the great weekend.
