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 Taos

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!

The best place to stay in Taos!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time staying at Casa Milagro & we couldn’t recommend it more highly. Love the location close to the plaza, love the well equipped kitchen, & the large dining room table for food & family games. The hot tub with alternating colored lights delighted our grandkids. You will love everything about this rental & Jessie is so responsive & easy to work with!

This house was wonderful and just as beautiful and comfortable as the photos and descriptions.

  • 5 of 5

We, three adult women, came to Taos for the Wool Festival. The casa is perfectly located to get to the events in Kit Carson park by foot, as well as most other places in town. We had all breakfasts at the casa, as well as one dinner. The kitchen is well equipped and seating is generous. We also enjoyed happy hour on the lovely deck outside the kitchen, and one of our breakfasts on the flagstone patio on the east side. The bedrooms were all large and the beds comfy with wonderfully soft sheets. It is close to all the fun and very convenient, but also surprisingly quiet. Looking forward to going back with other family and friends. Would highly recommend this property.
