About The Owner

This property was inherited last year and I am managing it on behalf of myself and my brothers. I live in Berkeley California and own and operate a restaurant there. I visit Taos frequently.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose New Mexico

This is an inherited home. Our Grandparents, Murl and Lucy Packard built the home in the late 1940's. They owned and operated the Plaza Supermarket, the main grocery store in Taos from the early 1940's to the 1970's. Grandpa served on the Taos City Council and was instrumental in the construction of the Gorge Bridge over the Rio Grande. Our Mother, Rosemarie Packard was president of the Taos Chamber of comnmerce during the 1990's and cared for her parents here untill their passing. Rosemarie passed away in 2008. This house was a special place for all of us, filled with laughter and family gatherings. We hope your stay here fills you with the same good feelings.

What makes this house unique

Taos is fantastic any time of year but especially for its world famous skiing and summer rafting on the Rio Grande. Many cultural activities and an amazing array of neat shops and fine restaurants for a small town. Of course Taos pueblo is a must see. The location of this property is prime. Easy strolling to downtown plaza and all of the shops, taverns and restaurants as well as the local Farmers Market around the corner. Slightly north of the plaza in the more upscale part of town, it provides easy access without the center town traffic jams to north side attractions like the pueblo, ski valley and Rio Grande gorge recreation areas. People who've visited always comment on the peaceful spirit of the house, very clean and tidy. Nice patio for BBQ's and large rear entrance laundry/utility room perfect for staging recreation items like skis and boots and fishing gear. As this home is inherited and paid for, overhead is low and we just want people to enjoy themselves and allow us to maintain it for multiple uses of family and friends. So for the consumer it's a great bargain for a great location! Need extra accomodations? Rent the adjoining Cottage/Casita (vrbo #272424) and this house together for only $200 per night!

A great value on a nice house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was so enjoyable, and the big backyard was a great place to hang out with the kids and dog. We walked to the plaza, short film festival, and played in the park across the street. It was a great week.

Can't beat the location and price

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect location for parents, grandparents, and kids. Some of us hit the slopes while others checked out the downtown shops. In the evenings, we always walked to dinner. The house was very clean and well furnished.

LOVED this property! Can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights in the big house and 3 nights in the casita. The house was huge. We had 2 adults and 2 kids, 6&7. Loved the king size beds. That's the only thing missing from the casita. Everything was great! Extremely clean Couldn't ask for more. Great location. Walked to dinner almost every night. About a 25 minute drive to Taos Ski Valley. David was very easy to deal with and responded right away to email and phone calls. Yavanne was just a phone call away if we needed anything (which we didn't, so never got to meet her 😊򒠩. To top it off, the price can't be beat-ANYWHERE!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 people stay in the home. The beds were super comfy, the house was clean. We stayed in Taos for a ski trip, the location is wonderful, right in walking distance from shopping and eating! The back porch is beautiful and cozy with a fire pit and swing. The house was well furnished and well stocked. If we go back to Taos, will definitely book again!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

If you are going to visit Taos, this is a great place to stay. It is spacious, well appointed and very convenient to downtown Taos and the Plaza. Lots of good food, shopping and galleries within walking distance. Yavanne is a great hostess and very helpful. We have stayed here a few times and are planning on returning.
