Favorite walks from Burch Street Casitas...

The little town of Taos is three short blocks. Don't miss the Bent Street shops. A short walk leads to beautiful mountain and meadow views, Taos Plaza, the park, & the historic Taos Inn. And you can't miss the beautiful, almost ancient, giant cottonwoods.

Favorite Restaurant...

Doc Martin's at the Taos Inn (walking distance). Great atmosphere and food breakfast, lunch or dinner. Try the rich blue corn blueberry pancakes!

Favorite Museum...

The Millicent Rogers Museum (and house). Fabulous house, jewelry, art, and setting.

Favorite Drive...

Santa Fe is a scenic hour and a half away. Fun but we liked to escape the crowds and get back to Taos at the end of the day. (Road can be tricky after dark.)

Sense of Privacy...

The Casitas don't usually have daily 'maid service,' which we preferred. It gave us a wonderful sense of privacy and seclusion. (If you needed something, however, Jim or Nancy would be there in a minute.) The Burch Street Casitas are on our permanent Must-Stay List. Burch Street Casitas comes up on Google.

Jim and Nancy 575-737-9038 purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Jim and Nancy 575-737-9038 chose New Mexico

First, we love the walking life style of Taos.

Before this we were inn keepers and learned that customers need a lot more than a room.

So Nancy and I built these Casitas because this is exactly what customers were telling us that they look for when going on vacation.

Our customers share our tastes when it comes to this boutique lodging property.

Give us a try you will love it.

Thanks, Jim

What makes this cottage unique

We live on property and have lived in Taos for 14 years. So we are excellent reference points for your next adventure! A very nice peaceful retreat in town.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a nice way to unwind and get away from it all. You can go into town on foot and come back and be in an entirely different place at the Burch Street Casitas.

Burch Street Casitas is the best place to stay and relax in Taos, New Mexico. Having traveled to Taos for years the only place we stay is at Burch Street Casitas because they have all the amenities, charm and character we love.

Just off the main drag and short 3 block walk from the town square, it is in a perfect location and very close to shopping, dining and art galleries.

Jim and Nancy are the most gracious hosts and always go out of their way to make us feel confortable.

All of the casitas are full of original southwestern artwork, rich in their cosmetic character and have a plethora of novels and short story books and have a beautiful relaxing southwestern ambiance. The radiant heated floors kept us warm and the beautifully decorated bathrooms have a spa like feel. Each casita has a king size bed, a kitchen, washer and dryer, a wood desk, flat screen TV with cable, WiFi, a small fireplace, and cozy balcony. I have stayed in all of the casitas, however I love casita C the most because of the artwork and the native Indian weavings.

I love the Burch Street Casitas and already booked my stay for this coming May.

The Absolute BEST of TAOS - Your Own Private Casita

  • 5 of 5

HANDS DOWN, The absolute best stay in Taos! You will not find a better location being in the heart of "All Things Downtown Taos" surrounded by the amazing mountains in the Taos Valley on a quite street off of downtown, the Burch St. Casitas are a true find.

Imagine having your own private condo, over 600 sq. ft. of the most serene, tastefully designed Adobe style casitas. I've stayed for over 7 days, after staying one night in a horrible hotel experience.

I contacted Jim on the phone and right away he verified that he could accommodate me for the time frame I was looking. The place was so amazing, I stayed 2 extra days. Jim is a master chef who ran a massive Inn with his wife Nancy in the Colorado region, after a successful run there, Jim realized his dream of moving to Taos and operating the best of what he took from his travels around the world. They spared no expense in designing the proper retreat.

These casitas were built by Jim and Nancy, outfitted with the most comfortable furniture and equipped with the most amazing King Size bed and finishes. Where do you go and find a Washer and Dryer, Wood Burning Fire Place, Front and Rear Porches, Private Drive Parking and absolute peace? You also have free high speed wifi, a flat panel TV and separate dining & study area.

You want to choose the Burch St. Casitas because the owners spent time designing every detail of what it would take to ensure they created a 5 star experience. Not even a 3 minute walk into downtown and you are in the heart of it all. Great art, great culture, amazing food and the most genuine people you will meet. Not to mention a short hop into the mountains if you are here for Skiing, Snowboarding or Trail Hiking.

Not only was this an amazing stay at an incredible property, but I was able to create incredible amounts of work. As a writer I enjoy peace and quiet, and this is what I got to fuel my creative fire. I was able to venture away to the mountains a few times for hiking, a traditional sweat lodge, and for capturing the last snow of the early spring. Each time I came back from a full day, it was like coming back to my very own secure and cozy home.

You will not be dissapointed here, you have complete privacy, full housekeeping, a FULL KITCHEN, private bath, your own hot water heater to ensure you NEVER have a cold shower.

Before you ever consider another place, check out if this property is available. You will absolutely know you made the perfect choice.

Perfect experience - can't wait to go back!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Burch Street Casitas in August 2014 for a conference in Taos. Our stay was absolutely perfect - the Casitas are spacious, clean and beautiful, very well-decorated with everything we could want for our stay. They are in a quiet and very pretty neighborhood and only a 5-ish minute walk from the downtown/plaza area. Wonderful sitting area, back porch, kitchen, bathroom. Perfect all around! We highly recommend staying here and will be back as soon as possible! As a side note, go eat at the Love Apple while in Taos - our favorite place there!

Overall, not too bad for the price. Front desk staff was super friendly. I think anyone ever smiled at me or thanked me for staying there. Condo was clean and simple. Views are nice. Thanks Burch St. Casitas!
