Taos House Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious Comfort Convenient to Taos Ski Valley; 3 BR 3 BA Sleeps 6.

Casa Milagro—True Comfort and Class in the Heart of Taos

Experience the authentic southwest in this three-bedroom, three-bathroom Spanish colonial revival home on a quiet, tree-shaded street five blocks from Taos’s bustling plaza.

Casa Milagro’s elegance is in its details. Adobe walls adorned with authentic textiles and art. Imported doors and sculpted ironwork. Hand-hewn wood beams that support antique chandeliers. Splashes of vibrant color throughout. No part of Casa Milagro was overlooked in our effort to create a haven that matches the uncommon splendor of Taos.

Prepare a delicious meal using the fresh ingredients you found at the Taos Farmers Market—our sun-washed kitchen is fully stocked and gives cooks a creative setting for their handiwork with its stainless steel appliances, deep farmhouse sink, and spacious center island with seating for friends to gather and chat alongside the cook.

From the kitchen, French doors lead to the deck with a large table that seats six or eight for alfresco dining. Plate some eggs and bacon for a fresh breakfast with friends and family. At dinnertime, a more formal option is the six-eight seat Old World dining table—a great place to tuck into steaks seared on the outdoor propane grill.

Later, relax with a glass of Taos’s distinctive local wine or margarita on the partially covered adobe portale, made more elegant by a commanding antique chandelier from Colorado Springs Broadmoor Hotel. Or, cool off in air conditioning indoors while watching television on the 60-inch flat-screen television in the living area, which is also outfitted with sumptuous leather chairs and an L-shaped couch.

Each of this home’s three bedrooms offers a unique perk. One has a sitting room warmed by a traditional kiva—an adobe wood-burning fireplace. Another features an elegant scrollwork bedframe. The last has a gorgeous chandelier suspended above the bed, as well as an attached bath with a shower and lighted onyx sink.

Casa Milagro is situated at a comfortable distance from the tourist noise of the historic Taos plaza, but a short walk leads you to the heart of it all, where you have fifteen restaurants to choose from, plus boutiques, bars and the museum.

Some say our rental home has an “old soul,” and one-of-a-kind character that’s evident in every room, and we agree! Just wait until you see Casa Milagro in the glow of evening, with the porch and garage lights, and the stars above, illuminating the home’s warm adobe façade and the gorgeously landscaped yard.

Come and see it for yourself in 2014! We expect a busy year, so get in touch now to reserve your dates!

About jessie webster

Jessie had a career with two major corporations that included a 5-year assignment in Beijing, China as a Regional Director in Asia. She completed her career in Chicago as the CEO of a software company.

Now retired Jessie wants to be near her family. She bought a log cabin in Colorado within hours of both her children's families. Recently she has renovated an adobe house in Taos, New Mexico, also in the region of the family.

Jessie restored an adobe home as a work of love with careful attention to the beauty of Spanish colonial architecture

Both the log cabin and the adobe casa are family homes, but when not in use, they are vacation rentals for other families to enjoy.

To see the Colorado log cabin near the Rocky Mountain National Park, go to Property #243434

jessie webster purchased this house in 2012

Why jessie webster chose New Mexico

Energized by architecture and interior design, Jessie bought a plain adobe house on a lovely street in the historic district of Taos. It took a year, but the family did more than restoration. They added architectural features, large windows, and modern conveniences with an eye for the beauty of Spanish colonial design.

What makes this house unique

When we saw this home on a shady street near the Taos Plaza, we could see the possibilities of creating an authentic southwestern colonial beauty. We loved restoring it with attention to every detail. We chose Taos because of its adobe architecture, fascinating history. mountain climate and spectacular vistas of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. I love the idea that some of the adobe structures still standing were part of the making of the Wild West. Taos is an all season resort. Our children and grandchildren can enjoy summer and winter sports here with its moderate summers, colorful wooded autumns, and ski-worthy winters near a world class ski resort. Besides that, there's always a festival, concert, farmers' market, or art show going on. With its relaxed pace and mountain air, it attracts artists as well as celebrities and is both restful and stimulating.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived in the dark hours to a lit up (luminarias on the roof) shining holiday home with a decorated Christmas tree inside and other holiday ornaments. It could not have been more welcoming. As for the home, it was Taos-beautiful! Pueblo style (the walls are so insulating that we didn't need any heat on at night to sleep even with single digit temps), wood floors, enclosed fireplace that warms the space (doesn't draw the heat up the chimney). Large open common space perfect for our group of six to dine formally or casually. Some rentals leave you high and dry and you have to shop right away for TP, paper towels etc. But Jessie took care of all that except foil/plastic wrap. Even had complementary wood for the fire. The home is nicely furnished with old time quality pieces. So nice. We had two snow storms adding to the charm of it all, and walked to the Plaza to shop and browse. The kids went skiing only 1/2 hr away @ TVSA. And the hot tub was perfect. We'd stay at Jessie's again in a heart beat. Well done, Jessie!

Location, location! And so charming!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a house with true New Mexican flavor for our vacation. This place has it, and feels more like staying in a private home, with tasteful, comfortable furnishings collected over a lifetime, rather than a sterile vacation rental. We appreciated the attractive dishes, glassware, and serving pieces. The blender, electric skillet, a flour sifter, hand mixer, and everything I need for baking helped me cook a fabulous birthday dinner. The hot tub is new and well maintained. The best part was the appealing, quiet residential street that is within walking distance of great bars and restaurants.

Best VRBO we've ever rented

  • 5 of 5

This Taos home was ideally located about 5 blocks from the Plaza. It was beautifully decorated and immaculate. As soon as we pulled up we were in love. We had three couples, so the 3 bedrooms and 3 baths were just the right fit and the beds were incredibly comfortable. The kitchen is a dream and there's an enormous TV in the living room situated above the fireplace that is tastefully placed so you can watch everything (TV and fire) at the same time. Excellent restaurants are close to the quiet street on which the house sits. It's fenced with adobe so you don't see the neighbors. The house is much more beautiful than the pictures posted in VRBO, so if you like the pictures, you'll LOVE the house. We would stay here again in a heart beat.

Great location and nice appointments

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location within walking distance of most everything in town and peaceful front porch and curb appeal. Very nice appointments and look forward to seeing pictures of the back yard when it is finished... will be wonderful. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils and everything one needs. Hot tub was nice after a hike and half day fly fishing. One item of note ... be sure to bring your personal items.

Incredibly beautiful home and with extensive character

  • 5 of 5

The pictures actually don't fully represent how beautiful this home is. We arrived late for a long weekend ski trip with 3 adult couples and pulled up on a dark street to candlelit house greeting us. It was very easy to find, even late at night, and we found the home very warm and welcoming. It is very spacious, 3 full bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. We did not spend very much time in the house as we were skiing at Taos all day and walking around the town at night. But we did find a few hours to soak in the Hot tub, and having such a relaxing home to look forward to at the end of a long day really was a pleasure.

We walked to breakfast down the street to Michael's Kitchen and we walked to dinner to the plaza. We shared a hearty dinner at Lambert's of Taos (Get the Green Pepper chili) and be sure to visit the treehouse bar upstairs.

Jessie was gracious and great to work with. I absolutely recommend Casa Milagro, I can see how it would shine for a spring, summer or fall trip. We hope to visit again, it was our first time in Taos but certainly not our last.

Lovely--but best for short people!

  • 4 of 5

Casa Milagro was lovely and very comfortable for our family gathering. It was right in the heart of Taos and we enjoyed daily walks to great shopping and restaurants and a short drive to Arroyo Seco and the ski valley.

The furnishings were comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. Also, the hot tub was a treat!

Unfortunately, Casa Milagro is designed with numerous very low-hanging pendant light fixtures. To be fair, our family has some VERY tall individuals (6' - 6' 5"), but even the person who is 5' 10" got a nasty knot on her head from one of the front porch fixtures (OUCH!). EVERY room is festooned with a fanciful (pointy, sharp, raw-edged metal) fixture that--for a tall person--cannot be seen because it's JUST above eye level.

I would heartily recommend this place for all people who are 5'9" and below.

Casa Milagro is Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for 3 couples or a family! Three bedrooms, three full baths! It is walking distance into Taos so having some skiers and some who don't, worked out really well. The house is very private even in a residential neighborhood. Furniture and decor are beautiful and very comfortable. We loved sitting and visiting around the large dining room table! The kitchen's amenities are perfect and equipped with anything you need! The owner, Jesse checked in on us ( by phone) and made sure we had a good time! She was very attentive to our needs and wanted to make sure everything was perfect for our stay! I cannot stress enough how lovely this house is- down to the last detail! We will definitely return!!
