Peaceful, Romantic Getaway
Submitted: April 3, 2011

We spent 3 nights here for our 1st anniversary, and it was absolutely perfect. The cottage offered a full-sized kitchen and outdoor BBQ grill, so it would have been possible to stay without ever having to leave the peaceful setting. The deck was only four or five feet from the river, so lounging there was a completely relaxing experience. Privacy was interupted only by the whistling birds in the surrounding trees. A hill on the opposite side of the river provided a natural privacy barrier from local traffic and neighbors. The house was nicely appointed with many modern conveniences (washer, dryer, Direct TV, telephone), but the jacuzzi opening to the deck to let the sound of the river in was my favorite. The bed was also next to French doors opening to the deck, so nature was never too far away. Taos was a short twenty some miles to the north and Santa Fe 39 miles to the south, so it was a terrific place to get away without being too isolated. My only suggestion to make your stay more comfortable would be pick up some bottled water on your way in. The house uses a reverse osmosis system to supply the drinking water, but being city folks, it was not to our taste. There were plenty of blankets, towels,and kitchen ware; the only thing not provided I can think of is a robe. My husband and I have stayed in bed and breakfasts from Arizona to North Carolina, and the only place more enchanting for us thus far was ... the front porch swing in NC, but there only because of the fireflies.
