PARADISE CREEK CASITA - QUESTA - 20 MILES FROM TAOS 10 MILES FROM RED RIVER

Red River House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

La Casita at Paradise Creek is the perfect place to relax and soak in the mountain air of Northern New Mexico. Nestled beside a creek and surrounded by cottonwoods on 3.2 acres in the mountains of Questa, La Casita is a beautiful and well-placed getaway. Just on the outskirts of Questa, a quaint, heritage-rich village, La Casita is a short, scenic drive away from both Taos (25 min) and Red River (10 min), and only a ten minute walk from Eagle Rock Lake. The abundance of natural beauty in the area offers endless opportunities to enjoy nature, from fly fishing and trail hiking in the spring and summer, to hunting in the fall, and skiing and snowboarding in the winter.

La Casita is an 800 sq. foot, two bedroom, 1.5 bath home, with a distinctive New Mexican flavor. The master bedroom has wood floors and a comfortable queen bed. The second bedroom has saltillo tile and a Murphy’s bed that turns into a double sleeper. There is also a sofa sleeper (Quadro - folds 4 ways) in the living room. The kitchen has handcrafted wood cabinetry and saltillo tile. The home comes fully stocked with linens, kitchenware, a washer and dryer, wireless internet, satellite cable television, and a DVD player.

La Casita is located at the secluded northern end of the property. Please inquire if you would like to rent the main house, Casa Leyenda (House of Legends), that sleeps up to 10 people, which is located at the opposite end of the property. (VRBO # 354783)

Questa is located on the Enchanted Circle scenic highway, near the confluence of the Rio Grande and Red River, and is at the western base of the Taos Mountains.

Owner, Real Estate and Cleaning Lady were all nice and helpful. The rooms were not as big as they look on the website but they were clean and comfortable. We were there for 2 nights and rode our Harley so we didn't pack very much clothing as we were planning on doing laundry and wearing same clothes back on our return, however the washing machine was broke. Was very glad we took our own shampoo, conditioner and soap as there were non provided. (there was dispenser on shower wall but was either empty or broke, looked rusted). Be sure to take hair dryer as not one provided, I did ask this in advance. All minor things but noteworthy. We had a relaxing time staying in this small house. Thank you Patricia.

Owner's Response: In response to tenant's review:

1.Despite awareness of check-in time, tenants arrived at 2 pm -earlier than check-in allows. Tenant claimed she was not notified of check-in time. Right above her signature on contract, 4 pm check-in time is very visible. Upon arrival, while on the phone with my assistant, she was advised that the house may not be ready. Tenant stated it was clean and ready. Housekeeper was not done. Shampoos and soaps are supposed to be provided.
2. Blow Dryer requested but not provided - None of my staff or myself ever received a request. We will start providing a blow dryer.
3. Smaller than pictures show - please see other review remarks "perfect for 6 people." It is a casita and no one has ever complained of the size.
Washer broken - We depend on tenants to notify us. Last tenants - Nancy and Dan did not have a problem with the washer....

I am sorry these people came from far away on their Harleys during a rain storm and felt inconvenienced because of the washer. I have offered a recompense for their inconvenience and am waiting to hear from them.
I see everything as a learning experience and appreciate all reviews. We can only get better! Patricia

Our stay at Paradise Creek was wonderful. an excellent place to rest and relax. Close enough to Red River to take in all the activites but far enough away to escape the crowds. Wonderful for couples who are looking for a quiet, comfortable get-away.

Our stay at the Casita was very pleasant and relaxing! We had a quiet place to retreat to after the busyness of siteseeing and shopping. Could sit on the porch and hear and see the creek running by. Great place if you bring your dog, very quiet.

We arrived and Melanie was just finishing cleaning up. The casita is very quaint, enjoyable, quiet and perfect for a couple or a couple w/ kids. It has a living room/dining/kitchen combined. (very cozy). It has a bedroom w/the washer/dryer behind double doors. The main bedroom has a bath attached. The other bath is off the living room. Everything is very adequate. We loved cooking out on the grill. We ate a lot of our meals in the house. The washer /dryer is great. All the amenities are there to eat and to cook. A great job ! Horses just down the road to your left (feed them a piece of apple). But the food in Taos is great. (about 30 min)-eat at the Rancho Plaza Grill . Best Mexican food we've eaten in years! Stacked enchildas w/red sauce. Eat at the Taco Dinner (great pancakes) and the 5 Star Burger. All three are very good. The Taos country club for golf is great. The best fishning is down the Wild River Recreation area. @30 minutes from you Hiking down to the Red river takes @ 25 minutes but it's worth it!. Lake Cabristo is about 8 miles to the north. We loved staying at the Casita and Patricia was wonderful. We left the place in 58 degree weather only to arrive in McKinney, Tx in 109 degree weather!!! We should have stayed! The weather at the Casita is great and our dog loved it there.. We loved the area and hope to return.

We stayed in the Casita last week and it was great. There is privacy and the wonderful sound of a stream which runs by the property. The Casita is well situated for fishing trips to rivers like the Red and Costilla Creek. We fished or hiked every day and went into Red River which is about 15 minutes away. We had 3 people on our trip and the Casita was very comfortable for all of us. The best part of the Casita is the front porch in the morning. It is quiet and the cottonwood trees in the area provide shade until late morning. Charm, privacy and comfort is what we found at the Casita.
