Whether you are seeking a tranquil retreat for solitary pursuits, a cozy base for daytime ski activities or a romantic getaway, enjoy our beautiful private setting with breathtaking views for less than the cost of an in-town motel room!

Surrounded by sweeping, 40-mile vistas of the Sangre de Christos mountains, our charming, adobe-style studio Casita is situated on a pristine, two-acre lot located just 11 miles from the Taos Ski Valley and 7 miles from downtown restaurants, galleries and shops.

With private entrance and wrap-around deck with hot tub, affording stunning westerly views (suitable for amazing star-gazing!), our Casita is comfortably furnished in Southwestern decor and beautifully appointed with textile art, folk art, Saltillo tile floors (with radiant heating) and Mexican Talavera tile throughout.

Our fully equipped kitchen provides everything you will need for cooking during your stay, including: quality appliances, cookware and utensils, along with a full complement of herbs and spices. Cook with (and drink) our pure, fresh mountain well water!

Enjoy a full bathroom with tiled tub and shower.

Our Casita is ideal for single persons, a couple or a couple with a small child. A queen-sized bed, with a top-of-the-line Simmons Beautyrest pillow-top mattress, silk blanket and quality linens, comfortably accommodates two guests.

A raised twin aero-bed, with heated mattress pad, is available for an additional guest.

Tempurpedic pillows are available upon request.

Complimentary laundry service for stays of one week or more.

Children and pets are warmly welcomed with Owner's prior approval.

We continuously monitor rental rates for similar vacation home properties in the Taos area; we guarantee that you will not find a comparable property at a more reasonable cost!

Please e-mail us directly to obtain the best rates and with your questions or reservation requests. You will receive a prompt and courteous reply!

Much needed escape!

  • 5 of 5

I spent two nights in this fantastic studio. While not too far from Taos, this studio provided the quiet, private "me time" that I was looking for. The studio is immaculate and comfortable with views for miles. Although I didn't meet Mary, I had the privilege of meeting Maggie. Thanks Maggie for your knowledge of the area and your kind hospitality. I feel like I made a friend for life! I will definitely return!

Escape the World

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I drove down to Taos from Colorado, eager to rejuvenate in the peace and quiet. Maggie and Mary's casita was the perfect prescription! We enjoyed the wide open vistas and starry skies, all while being a quick 10 minute drive from town. If you want to explore the beauty of New Mexico and live in relaxing comfort, you MUST stay here.

Slice of Nirvana

  • 5 of 5

My partner, pup and myself had an extremely relaxing spring break at Maggie's and Mary's casita. Perfect size for the 3 of us and had everything we needed. The bed was super comfy and the hot tub provided the most fantastical place to watch the hot air balloons rise out of the gorge or watch those beautiful sunsets over the Rio Grande. Maggie and Mary were exceptional hosts. Location is ideal to several towns/hiking destinations/ski area/hot springs. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for peace, beauty, comfort, adventure and relaxation.

Couldnt ask for better!

  • 5 of 5

The place was lovely for my fiance and me. Couldnt ask for better. We brought our boxer with us, and there was no charge for a pet fee. Which was also a plus. It was our first time to Taos. Wasnt far from town and the views were beautiful. The owner is next door and she was very pleasant and sweet. We will be staying here again next year. We came here to ski for the first time and it was a 25 minute drive to ski valley. It was just wonderful for a romantic getaway for two.
