Welcome - and we invite you to experience the magic of Casa Buena Vista!
Casa Buena Vista is a dream come true!
It was more than 25 years ago when we first experienced Taos...and the magic lives on! And we now call it our companion home - a perfect getaway with 'all mod-cons.'
We love Taos given its beauty, culture and people - rich with art and steeped in history. Home to Taos Pueblo, the Village of Taos Ski Valley and a colorful array of surrounding communities like the charming Village of Arroyo Seco.
We chose to reside in the charming Village of Arroyo Seco given its small New Mexican village atmosphere - variety of restaurants, art galleries and specialty shops - and location [situated majestically below Taos Mountain (and the Taos Ski Valley Canyon) and conveniently between the town of Taos (9 mi) and Village of Taos Ski Valley (9 mi)]. And there are many folktales told in New Mexico about how some towns came to be. There are few, however, which can match the beauty of the tales surrounding the founding of the Village of Arroyo Seco.
Fun activities for all ages in the Taos area include: skiing, snowboarding in surrounding towns, mountain and desert hiking to rivers and waterfalls, rock climbing, whitewater rafting and kayaking, hot air ballooning, golf, tennis, and mountain biking. World class restaurants, shops, a cinema, including a weekly art film series, museums, art galleries, classes, and workshops. Something for everyone. The Taos Ski Valley has many fun events throughout the Winter; the Taos Film Festival takes place in March; the World Poetry Bout in June; the Solar Music Festival in July; the Fall Arts Festival in September; Mountain Film Festival and the Balloon Festival in October. Visit the Taos Pueblo the oldest continually occupied structure in North America with tours and several festivals open to the public.
Other Activities: Rafting; Geocaching
Golf: Taos Country Club
Located at 7,000 feet elevation in historic Taos, and featuring spectacular desert scenery with abundant sagebrush, challenging arroyos, and panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and nearby Taos Box Canyon, Taos Country Club offers one of the most dramatic golf experiences in New Mexico. Measuring a lofty 7,300 yards from the back tee, the links-style championship design will test the skills of even the most seasoned golfer, while its gently rolling terrain and four sets of tees make the course forgiving and enjoyable for all skill levels.
Ski: Taos Ski Valley
Taos is a great place to vacation with your family because there is so much to see and do. When you take a family ski vacation, you want wholesome fun and the time spent together to be rewarding. Taos is full of interesting, educational, life-enhancing and exciting activities: whether you are skiing, ice skating, tubing, snowmobiling, hot air ballooning, or exploring new cultures, this vacation will be an experience you won't soon forget. Taos Ski Valley is the family fun leader and this year with improvements to their 'Out-to-Launch' Terrain Park, their Teen Center, and regularly scheduled evening activities, Taos is even more of a great family destination than ever.
