Here in Arroyo Seco and Taos the weather has been lovely with warm days and sunny skies so start thinking about your visit during the spring, summer or fall. And there is plenty to do. The Taos area is abundant with seasonal activities for the whole family. The Casita is located 1 mile west of the wonderful village of Arroyo Seco, 20 minutes north of Taos, 15 minutes from Taos Ski Valley which has some of the steepest and most challenging terrain in the country and where you can access trails to the highest point in the state. The ski valley has some of the most lush and cool creek side trails in the area and only a 15 minute drive from Arroyo Seco. This adorable Casita is lovingly furnished with Asian, African and Native American textiles, original artwork, and all the amenities to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. Cathedral ceilings and traditional vigas give this house a sense of spaciousness and New Mexico character.
Stroll the apple orchard, sip a margarita, a hot cocoa or some iced tea while watching the spectacular New Mexico sunsets on the front porch, or just relax after a day of skiing or hiking. Even at this time of year you can don a fleece jacket and take your coffee or tea to the back portal where you can watch the early morning light play across the mountains as the bunnies enjoy their breakfast. This home combines high quality amenities (such as a new comfortable mattress with organic cotton linens and memory foam topper) with family affordability. Whether exploring the town of Taos, the nearby beautiful mountain ranges, or some of the best skiing in the world, Casita Des Montes offers you a cozy, affordable, and accessible home away from home.

What an amazing place - the town, the people, the casita! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely experience, eager to return.
Welcome to Northern New Mexico! I am a licensed massage therapist specializing in Maya abdominal massage. I have two boys who love the activities available in Northern New Mexico.
The Casita is on family property, passed down to me by my father who planted the orchard you will see as you enter the property.
Our favorite things to do when we come to stay is to river raft, hike, and visit a most wonderful toy store in Taos called Twirl. Just relaxing and watching the marvelous sunsets is reason enough to visit as often as we can. I have made so many wonderful friends since my family discovered the Taos area in the early '70's and continue to visit and catch up with them each time we come back. And then there is that magical light on the mountains that is a source of constant wonderment and joy! I invite you to visit us at Casita des Montes and see what we mean!
