Overview

Taos House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths - sleeps 6

www.renttaosadobe.com This 2400 Sq. Ft. adobe home has three bedrooms, each separate from the others for the privacy adults prefer. Our priorities when furnishing our home were good mattresses, soft sheets and good reading lights. Our guests sleep 'like babies' here and we have several cozy reading places.

We added a 450 Sq. Ft. Dining Room and sitting area with a gas fireplace. This year we added the color coat and it looks beautiful!

We like to cook so we equipped the kitchen for a wide range of cooking and baking supplies. The cabinets are hand crafted and the new stone counter tops are a beautiful green slate with spectacular gray and white grain.

The teak dining table easily seats eight. The kitchen and dining area receive lovely morning light through a skylight and a French door to a stone patio.

Our home is fenced in with off street parking as well as a gated parking area and a small, fenced in back yard.

New Addition: We added a large room to the front of our house, to provide a dining area and a sitting area with a gas fireplace. We chose adobe construction, though it is costly, to preserve the comfortable feel of the house. We are very pleased with the work, done to a high standard, and the house continues to be very warm in winter and cool in summer.

Additionally, we added a large amount of counter space to the kitchen and it is a wonderful environment for cooking.

Beautiful, well located, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this house. The furnishings are comfortable, the kitchen has every tool an avid home chef desires, there is an extensive library, and the art is beautiful. In short, the home has everything one wants for a great vacation. Thank you.

Wonderful Family Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Eileen, your home is lovely, well equipped and welcoming. We had such a wonderful Christmas week, and it actually snowed on Christmas Day! Everyone agreed it was one of our best holidays ever. The house is a short walk to the Plaza and restaurants. We took advantage of skiing at both Taos and Angel Fire, a hike to the hot springs, as well as sledding and cross country skiing trails close by. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for posting this lovely review! We're glad you enjoyed it and that the snow co-operated with skiing this year. We hope you come again to Bear House.

Historic, homey and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

I and my family stayed in this lovely adobe home for 10 days and it was one of the most delightful VRBO stays we've had! The home itself, along with being perfectly appointed and well stocked, impeccably clean, and obviously lovingly cared for, is tucked away in a small historc neighborhood not far from the plaza that provides complete quiet and peace. The home's decor is inviting and warm, full of lovely Southwestern art, pottery, and prints and the unique flow of the house allowed for my husband and i to have privacy from our teens. We loved having our own private "living room" off the master bedroom in the "back" of the house. My daughter played the upright grand piano daily (yes, it was tuned!) and my husband devowered book after book (a much needed respite for him, as a writer himself) -- truly a quality selection! I loved the long and deep bathtub and the kitchen was perfect! The caretaker and the owner were both delightful and completely accessible and supportive. I would highly recommend this property to anyone seeking easy access to the plaza but also a private cozy get-away. A 5-star experience all the way round! :-)

Taos - September 2014

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the Taos area. The house was warm, welcoming, very clean and so comfortable. It was amazingly quiet considering the close proximity (walkng distance) to downtown. I loved coffee on the back deck in the mornings where it was open space in the surrounding back area. This three generation family (hopefully all four next round) made some great memories around the dining table! Can't wait to visit again!

Fantastic house and location

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this lovely house for a month this summer. The house is ideally located a few short blocks from the plaza and center of town yet it still is very quiet and feels like staying much further out. The house itself is terrific with anything you might need to relax or even do work remotely. The kitchen is expertly equipped which meant we didn't have to buy or bring any supplies. The beds are good quality and the sheets and towels are great. (Note - two of the beds are doubles which might be an issue for larger people) The rooms are well lit, there is great natural ventilation, and everything is very cozy. The grounds are great - there is a bbq grill on the front patio and lots of space around the house. We plan to stay here again and I would highly recommend. We have rented 5-6 houses is Taos and this was by far the best.

Exceeded Our High Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I travelled to Taos with our teenage daughter, college-aged son and a friend of each of theirs (six of us total). This house exceeded our high expectations! We have been to Taos several times and stayed in several hotels and rent homes. The kitchen was well equipped and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The sound system was super. Moreover, the location of this house is amazing. It is close enough that one group can take the car and go skiing and the other group can walk to shopping and eating without any trouble. The owner was nice and very easy to work with. We will recommend this house to our friends and family and we will stay here ourselves again. All I can say is that the pictures do not do the house justice- it is beautiful, spacious and the location cannot be beat.

Taos, New Mexico, USA

We are located a few minutes walk from the town plaza, home to live music in the summer and art/jewel/souvenir shopping all year round. A few minutes walk to the north takes you to Kit Carson Park and the Taos Community Center (check out their events page: http://tcataos.org/). Many restaurants are within walking distance, as well as Smith's, a full service grocery store. In spite of our central location, you will find Bear House very quiet and with almost a rural feel in our quiet neighborhood, with a fenced yard and a park that bounds our property at the rear.

Other Activities: Taos Ski Valley is known around the world for fantastic skiing and comfortable facilities. In the summer, one can ride the lift for incredibly beautiful hiking or enjoy various musical performances. TSV, one of the last resorts to reserve lifts for skiers only, three years ago began welcoming snowboarders. Contrary to old-timers' fears, snowboarders have easily integrated into the experience. In fact, they bring a youthful liveliness that has been very welcome. Whether you are planning to relax in our comfortable adobe and catch up on your reading or want outdoor adventure,

Bear House will give you a comfortable base. We love to cook so our kitchen is fully equipped with good pans and tools, and a very user friendly layout for one to many cooks. However, a meal at Graham's, Lambert's and Antonio's are musts for our trips here. Very different and very high quality dining.

Ski: While many find Taos Ski Valley to provide ample variety, some like to visit different areas and near Taos are Red River, Angel Fire and the Santa Fe Ski Resort. On a powder day, though, I always recommend TSV. They plow and sand their roads early and often and have many places for intermediate and advanced skiers to enjoy fresh powder.
