ARTIST'S ADOBE CASITA 'TWEEN TAOS/SKI VLY DOG OK VIEW, CHARM

Taos Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2) NO smoking

If you are interested, please email us DIRECTLY at anncole at newmex.com. Thanks!

Also, if we don't have the nights you want, check out our VRBO listing 138474. It's on the same piece of land and has a separate entrance, larger yard, awesome view!

The casita (this listing) is located on a high ridge between Taos and Ski Valley on the Valdez Rim Road with a spectacular view of the Valdez Valley. An authentic old adobe casita, it's serene, quiet and private. Only 15 beautiful minutes up the mountain to the ski lift, five minutes to the charming town of Arroyo Seco with great restaurants and shops, and a lovely 20-minute drive back to town!

Adjacent to an artist's home, the casita features TWO kiva fireplaces, skylights, saltillo tile floors, and an old viga beam ceiling - a typical Taos adobe! And a large portal (porch) to enjoy the cool breezes and the awesome view. It has it's own laundry room and it's own, fully-equipped kitchen. Honestly, you can pay a lot more and not find a place as wonderful!

(See the floor plan by clicking on the 'FLOORPLAN' link which follows.)

The living room has a banco (a large window seat) with a wonderful view of the valley and mountains, a signed kiva fireplace built by a local legend (this 73-year-old Hispanic genius - a grandmother - climbed on the roof with a chainsaw to cut the hole for the chimney!), and a satellite TV with over 100 channels. A single futon in the living room is available for sleeping, as is the couch and a large window seat (banco).

A complete laundry room comes with washer and dryer, a fullly equipped kitchen with colorful Mexican tiles, a romantic bedroom with down comforters, a queen-sized bed and a kiva (traditional New Mexican fireplace). The casita has it's own entrance and a separate telephone line so you can be very quiet and private.

This old home is a local landmark with a wonderful view out over the Valdez Valley to the Sangre de Cristo mountains from two covered porches.. wonderful for writing, painting, or simply getting away from it all.

Our check-in time is 3:00, checkout is 11:00 -- we know you'll hate to leave!

Pets: The casita has a private entrance and separate fenced yard -- we welcome one or two good dogs. Sorry, no cats (our good dog will eat them).

Smoking: There is NO SMOKING in the casita.

TO MAKE A RESERVATION: We have a 3-night minimum. Please email anncole@me.com to make a reservation. We are not often home to answer the phone! Thanks.

Do you like my self-portrait? I'm a former D.C. lobbyist, a sometime artist who drove up the canyon road past the hairpin turn one weathery afternoon, over the top to the view, and into the rest of my life.

anncole@me.com purchased this cottage in 1999

The old adobes of Taos are very special. Handmade, each one unique, with soft welcoming curves. History, romance, old legends, an historic neighborhood, and astoundiing views.

The casita was originally a workshop with a primitive bedroom and bath. It was so much fun creating a unique, special, evocative place to relax and be inspired. Old adobe is magical. The magic rubs off -- you'll see!

A cozy hideaway, close to the ski valley!

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights over the New Year during a ski trip in Taos. This casita was absolutely perfect! It is so cozy, cute, and authentic New Mexican with kiva fireplaces, beautiful artwork and tilework, and vigas and adobe walls. The queen bed is very comfortable, the living room has plenty of comfy seating, and the bathroom has plenty of counter space for your things. This is a perfect place for a couple or even parents with one or two kids (the couch and loveseat could sleep small children). The location is great for easy access to the ski valley and close to Arroyo Seco with some great restaurants (Taos Cow, Pizanos, and Sabroso are ones we really like). And the price can't be beat! You can't get a better deal than this. Why stay in a hotel room when you could stay here? We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back!

I just got home from a delightful stay outside Taos at Ann's cute little casita. It was the perfect size for me and then my husband when he joined me midway. The casita was clean and stocked with plenty of nice towels and kitchen basics. The washer and dryer was a life saver as I had been in the desert at a monastery for a month prior to arriving. The first thing I did was laundry!
I particularly enjoyed the fact that it was quiet--no unending street noise like in town. I felt very comfortable and at home. I will definitely stay here again!

We went on a getaway to the Casita de Taos. E-mail made it easy, we had no hassle with our dog and the place was warm and friendly. Out of town and up of the ridge top, but not to far from the bustle of Taos. We enjoyed exploring Arroyo de Secco and the Rio Grande bridge. The casita had all the comforts of home and the three night stay gave us time to relax and mellow. The art work is extraordinary, the kiva fireplace enchanting!
