BEAUTIFUL ADOBE HOUSE - WALK FROM TAOS PLAZA

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.

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.

Very nice and well maintained property!

  • 5 of 5
Bear House is a great place to stay. It is very close to the downtown plaza and most shopping/restaurants are easily accessible. We rented the house for a ski vacation and found the drive to Taos Ski Valley to be very reasonable. The house is spacious, well decorated and has all the necessary cooking utencils. The owner was very easy to deal with and I would definately rent this property again when I return to Taos for my next ski vacation.

Fantastic Taos Adobe!

  • 5 of 5
First the house is much larger and nicer than it looks in the photos. We were looking for a house that provided adequate privacy for three non-family members attending a seminar in Taos. Bear House was perfect. It was roomy, cute, clean, comfortable and provided adequate privacy for all three of us. The beds were comfortable with high quality linens. The kitchen is well equipped ready for any dish or culinary style. There are two spacious living/social areas and a very cute master suite in the back of the house. The house is walking distance from the plaza yet far enough away for privacy and quiet at night. I highly recommend this property.

Welcoming serenity

  • 5 of 5
Bear House is the definition of serenity. Anyone wanting a place to stay that is welcoming , comforting, and has everything you need, this is it.
This home makes you wish it was yours. It is a short walk to the plaza but you may never want to leave.

An amazing home

  • 5 of 5
My two friends and I were attending a weeklong art workshop in Taos ans needed a place close to the plaza and the Stable Galleries. A bedroom for each of us and a full kitchen was very important. I am terribly picky about my bed and its comfort. The sheets were a high thread count and I slept like an angel. The photos looked great but until we unlocked the door and went in did we find what a treasure we had discovered. There was nothing that we needed that was not available in the kitchen. An amazing library (not cast off books no one would want to read). Two huge living areas to entertain (we invited our workshop friends/artists over one evening for happy hour), beautiful surroundings in a really charming and eclectic neighborhood. I stay in many vacation rentals in the US and Caribbean, and really would put this on the list of my top 5. We consider it 'ours' for when we return to Taos for another workshop. But to be fair I guess we must share.....

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.
