The owners of this idyllic Taos guest house have thought of everything. Sacrificing none of the building’s classic adobe charm—viga ceilings, white-washed plaster walls—their recent renovation has created a beautifully designed, serene modern space on one of Taos’ prettiest streets. A courtyard shared with the owner’s main home is shaded by huge cottonwoods and features a small stone fountain and candlelit wall niche. The living room, bedroom and contiguous sitting room all feature crank-open windows, and the breakfast room opens onto a backyard patio with gas grill and apple tree. Thoughtful details include a kiva fireplace stocked with piñon wood, a bottle of wine (and milk for coffee) chilling in the sleek IKEA kitchen’s mini fridge, and bath amenities from a New Mexico organic lavender farm. We can’t wait to go back!!
We had a great time in our week at the casita. While hiking, rafting and sight-seeing were awesome, some of our favorite time was relaxing on the back patio in the morning. Judy and Alden made us feel welcome the entire time. We had fun visiting with them - and even some of their local friends!
