RIO GRANDE RIVER GORGE CASITA- TRADITIONAL ADOBE, HOT TUB, HIKING, PRIVACY

Taos House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 4

This secluded Rio Grande Casita puts the Great Outdoors at your doorstep. The views from the property are unmatched. This traditional village borders both the Rio Grande and the southern Rocky Mountains. Centrally located to sites in Santa Fe, Taos, and southern Colorado, it is a quick, scenic 20 minute drive to Taos, an hour drive from 4 popular ski areas, and a key location for birders, rock climbers, kayakers, and other outdoor enthusiasts. Archaeologists and geologists visit the area to explore cultural sites and rock formations. Artists set up easels along the riverbanks painting the rich colors and dramatic landscapes.

Skip the crowded condo scene and enjoy breathtaking scenery while grilling out on the patio or just kicking back on the screened veranda. Modern kitchen and spacious living area feature brick floors, kiva fireplace, and hand-crafted furniture. Perfect for a romantic getaway or for letting your children enjoy the freedom of natural surroundings.

Winter/Spring Conditions: Winter/Spring in Pilar can be the best time to visit. There are six nearby ski resorts with skiing and snow boarding. Travel time from the casita varies from 45 minutes to a little over an hour. The nearby Orilla Verde Recreation is quiet with returning bald eagles and other wildlife. Of course, summer can be exquisite. Cool nights give way to warm days and the quintessential azure skies of Northern New Mexico.

Taos hosts numerous seasonal festivals featuring regional art, food, and spirits.

Location Details: The casita is located at the end of a private road about 600 feet from the river. It is bordered by BLM land on two sides and is surrounded by mixed conifer trees that offer peace and privacy.

This is a rental by owner. We live next door, 200 feet away, and we are happy to assist visitors with any details regarding their trip to the Taos area.
