New Taos favorite - charming decor, gorgeous artwork, and great outdoor space!
My sister and I have been visiting Taos for 12 years now. We've stayed in several vacation houses over the years, with both big and small groups. The Simpson House is by far our favorite and I highly recommend it for 2 couples or a group of 4-6. It seems larger than it is, and the two bedrooms are on either side of the house, offering great privacy. It's well designed and gorgeously decorated. We couldn't get over the interior parlor room doors, the bathroom sinks, and the artwork all around - there are such great whimsical touches throughout!
We were blessed to have the Simpson House be a part of something extra special on this trip as my boyfriend and I got engaged on our drive up to meet my sister at the house! My now fiance surprised me when we stopped to take in the view at the County Line Gorge turnoff along the river south of Taos. It was so special, and a gorgeous day to boot! He proposed with his grandmother's engagement ring, over 70 years old, symbolizing the 50-year-long happy marriage his grandparents had. It was very romantic, and the Simpson House was the perfect sanctuary to celebrate!
After we got over the initial celebration with my sister when we arrived at the house, we had dinner at the El Monte Sagrado Resort. The house is in walking distance of the plaza, which is very important to us, and so we were able to enjoy daily walks into town for shopping, eating, and more celebrating.
This was my fiance's first trip to Taos, and he loved it too, so I know we will be back for more! I'm sure an anniversary trip to Simpson House is in our future...
Thanks to Lance for being an attentive owner, from reservation through departure, and to Andy, for being an accommodating caretaker!
