You can enjoy any of the 4 seasons in this beautiful custom designed straw bale house with an eye towards 'green and sustainable living'. Custom wood work throughout. Antique reclaimed doors and original art work give this charming home a wonderful sense of character. The now rare but traditional ' mud floors' add to the artistic and quaint charm of Apple Hill Farm. An incredibly gorgeous setting with valley and mountain views will refresh the spirit and soul of all guests large or small, young or old. Stroll the orchard or take a walk to the charming village of Arroyo Seco, a mile away, with shops, boutiques and eateries. Relax in the hot tub while watching our famous sunsets.
The open floor plan showing two lofts connected by a wooden bridge walkway adds intrigue and charm and two additional sleeping areas. For added convenience the lofts share an upstairs half bath. Located half way between Taos and the ski valley, winter guests will enjoy the convenience of the straight drive up to Taos Ski Valley or the easy access route down the mountain and into Taos for dinner or shopping.
This is a semi-private setting with 2 other houses sharing 3 acres of fenced land. See our other homes, Casita des Montes, VRBO # 279174, and Casa Manzanita, #650252, right next door to the straw house. Rent two or three for family gatherings or celebrations with friends and we will offer you a special rate. Your caretakers, family friends, will help in any way they can to take care of anything that might come up, or to answer questions about the house or the area.
