We were blessed to celebrate our 34th anniversary this summer. We have lived in Santa Fe for 20 years and have loved every minute in The Land of Enchantment. We are mostly retired now...John worked in film and television and Joan was the director of a Santa Fe non-profit. Photo Above: John and 'Cooper' at Williams Lake in the beautiful Taos Ski Valley.

We found ourselves spending a lot of time in Taos to ski in the winter and hike in the summer. New Mexico is known for its beauty but Taos is truly awe inspiring to us and many others who visit this exquisite town. We looked at houses for months but when we saw this home in the Millicent Rogers Museum area, we both fell in love with Casa Verde. Now we enjoy sharing our homes with visitors and love to hear from guests who tell us that staying at Casa Verde helped to make their family reunion or ski vacation even more special.
We enjoy the feeling of seclusion and privacy in our area, yet we are close to town and close to the Taos Ski Valley. The great room is spectacular...the light, the mountain views, the aspens 'quaking' in the front courtyard....the list goes on. The layout of the home is very conducive to large gatherings. There is a place for everyone to enjoy a bit of privacy and no one has to sleep in a hallway or living room.
We had a wonderful family reunion. There were 14 of us. The house was perfect and well-stocked. Loved the decor and the separated bedrooms (we had three generations staying here!). We also loved the view of the fantastic New Mexico show...a lightening and thunderstorm!
Family of 12 enjoyed a long weekend in this beautiful home. Its 10 min drive outside of Taos and 5 mins from the road to the Taos ski run. Easy drive to town. Perfect getaway for our family and accommodated us splendidly! Kitchen/living area is very spacious. Cousins played ping pong every night and utilized the hot tub and roasted marshmellows for one night over the small fire pit in the back yard. Has a beautiful view of the mountain and morning sunrise is was amazing! Definitely recommend!
I have stayed in this lovely place three separate times. The house is always clean and completely stocked. Casa Verde is a luxurious, spacious, comfortable home with quiet well appointed bedrooms and bathrooms. It offers awesome views you can enjoy while lounging on the patio or in the living room, relaxing in the hot tub, or enjoying a fabulous meal in the dining room. The kitchen is fully equipped making it a pleasure to fix a simple snack or gourmet meal.
The location was perfect for us, close to town and right on the way to the ski resort. An abundance of fantastic restaurants, great shopping, and outdoor activities are minutes away.
The thing I like best is the quiet, relaxing atmosphere of the home. The least, having to leave!
Our group of 13 family and friends enjoyed a wonderful President's weekend at the Casa Verde. Located on a large quiet lot about 4 miles north of the plaza, this spacious and comfortable home provided a great base for exploring the Taos Pueblo, galleries, museums (10 minute walk to the impressive Millicent Rogers Museum), and outdoor activities including hiking, downhill skiing and snowshoeing. The house is beautifully furnished with large welcoming bedrooms and common areas. We cooked several large group meals in the well equipped chef's kitchen. The radiant heat makes for consistently cozy temperatures throughout the house. Everyone enjoyed night-time soaks in the hot tub under a sky full of stars. Fantastic view of Taos Mountain to the east, sunsets to the west. Helpful property owner and property caretaker provided lots of information on the house and area, answered all our questions, and made us feel very welcome.
My family and I spent a very enjoyable week over Christmas at Casa Verde. We were a total of 13, including 5 children. We found Casa Verde to be spacious yet extremely conducive to intimate gatherings for games or just conversation. Most times we found ourselves hanging out in the kitchen. Everyone also was very appreciative of the of the privacy that the 5 large bedrooms provided. Joan hooked us up with the most helpful lady that preprovisioned the kitchen per our list. That was a big help and freed up everyones time for the reason we were there, FUN. Thanks Joan for making Casa Verde possible.
