Taos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Stay at the Lucky Dog Casa and experience the Best of Taos!

Enjoy spectacular views of Taos Mountain, the Sangre de Cristo Range, and open Mesa vistas.

From your front door or bedroom window, you can greet the day and an awesome sunrise over the mountains to the east. As you watch, a pallet of pastel color fades into a brilliant blue New Mexico sky.

Views from this casa seem to be endless in all directions.

Relax at the end of the day on the back patio while watching the sun set over rolling fields of sage, and disappear into a firey red and purple sky.

Soak in the hot tub while gazing at a million points of light in a night sky of indigo.

This serene, quiet, location feels remote but is just minutes away from world class dining, shopping, and art.

The casa is located just 7 miles from downtown restaurants, galleries, and shops. If skiing is your passion, you are only 15 miles from the newly upgraded Taos Ski Valley. The Rio Grande River is a mere 3 miles away. Rafting and hiking are practically in your back yard.

The casa itself is a beautifully decorated 1500 Square foot home. It includes all the features you would expect of a classic southwest adobe house. Kiva fireplace, hand plastered walls, saltillo tile floors, viga beam ceilings, colorful custom tile work along with tasteful art and accessories will fulfill your desires for living in southwest style . You will be comforted with the modern conveniences in the casa, to include, under floor heating, a Jacuzzi type bath tub, full sized washer and dryer, a fully-equipped kitchen, and big screen TV with entertainment center and wi-fi.

The casa has two large bedrooms and two full bathrooms with a spacious living/dining/kitchen area.

The master bedroom has a king sized bed and direct access to the back portal. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and awesome mountain views. Both beds have high quality pillow top mattresses and are extremely comfortable. For additional guests the sofa converts to a queen size bed.

There is a hot tub on the back patio just outside the master bedroom.

There are many activities and fun things to do, just a short drive from your home base. You can enjoy the culture of Taos, with its art galleries, eclectic shops and unique restaurants. Skiing, snowboarding, tubing, rafting, fishing, hiking, or adventuring through one of the many colorful towns nearby, can be found within minutes from the casa.

Whether you spend your days adventuring, pursuing your favorite outdoor sport, or, simply relaxing and soaking in the rich New Mexico scenery, this classic casa will serve as an accommodating home base.

If you decide to stay home and enjoy the local scenery, we suggest having your coffee or your lunch outside on the large portal. On a chilly evening it's great to sit inside cozy and warm in front of the Kiva fireplace.

No matter which suits your particular style, the experience will, surely, be one you'll remember.

We welcome our four legged as well as two legged guests. Our two lucky rescue dogs, Ruby and Shamus, love the mesa. They insist that we return regularly. We think you and your dogs will love it, too!

Even if you don’t bring pets, everyone who stays at this casa is a Lucky Dog!

Truly didn't want to leave....

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Lucky Dog Casa, and two weeks just wasn't long enough. The casa is so beautifully situated; remote enough to have the peace and quiet we crave, but only a short trip from the wonderful town of Taos, and so may other places to visit.

Watching the sunrises and the balloons floating over the gorge from the hot tub each morning was heavenly. There was so much wildlife to be seen, and the awesome sunsets each night seemed to go on and on. Every night we were treated to an amazing chorus from the coyotes. This is truly a place to relax and put your cares to one side.

The casa is beautifully clean and has the most wonderful decorative touches. The bed is so comfortable, and it is fabulous to shower with such a lovely view! The garden is filled with wonderful flowers and wind ornaments, it is a joy to behold.

We spent a lot of time in town, just 10 minutes away, enjoying the many wonderful shops and listening to live music while we sipped our coffee. We also visited Ojo Caliente hot springs spa, just a 50 minute drive away, and that was an amazing experience - we recommend the mud pool, it leave your skin so soft! The Enchanted Circle drive was beautiful, especially with the aspens changing colour. We also greatly enjoyed our visit to Taos Pueblo - not to be missed!

We have stayed in several house rentals throughout the States, and this is far and away our favourite. Can't recommend highly enough. Kerry is a dream to deal with, and Chris keeps the place beautifully clean and maintained. Book with confidence, you won't be disappointed.

We are already planning our return trip next year - we have truly left our hearts at the Lucky Dog Casa, and can't wait to be back there again. :)

Another Great Stay at Lucky Dog!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer to be fortunate enough to spend some time at the Lucky Dog Casa in Taos. We reaffirm our previous comments that this is a wonderful and very well appointed home. Almost everything you could possibly desire is there. The home is beautifully decorated (love all that colorful Mexican tile), clean, and with very comfy beds. It's a very livable and comfortable house.

We sent many, many hours enjoying the views from the patio - from the launching of the hot air balloons to knock your socks off sunsets over the mountains. The short road leading to the Casa was in excellent condition.

We highly recommend a stay a visit at the Lucky Dog Casa, and we are already making plans for a return stay next year.

Magical stay in Lucky Dog Casa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a magical 2 1/2 weeks at Lucky Dog Casa near Taos. The house and amenities are great (beds are super comfy) and the location was 5 miles north of Taos on the Hondo Mesa which meant peace and quiet! I usually stay on the mountain side, but changed this time-- and so glad I did! The vistas are stunning, the stars at night are incredible, and the house is very well appointed, decorated, and most of all -- comfortable!

Property was very clean and fully stocked with every needed supply. Customer service was a 10 from both the owner and caretaker, Chris. I loved that it's far enough out to have minimal noise (no traffic near by) but close enough to access restaurants, shops, etc. I love visiting Arroyo Seco, NM, which is a close 15 minute drive from the house. This a winner! I would definitely recommend this to all! Can't wait to go back next time!!

Great Stay at the Lucky Dog Casa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 3 nights over the 4th of July at the Lucky Dog Casa. It was a very cozy house with all the basic amenities that you would need. The kitchen had all the basics plus a toaster, crock pot, and some seasonings that were left by other people that spent the night. I would recommend going to the local market called Cids and take advantage of cooking inside the house.

If anyone's looking for a dog friendly hike, we really enjoyed the Columbine Trail East of Questa. Definitely worth checking out.

We will be back to visit and make sure you enjoy an amazing sunset out on the patio. Picture perfect!

We had a great long weekend at Lucky Dog Casa. We picked up some excellent meat and produce from Cid's (the local organic market), and were able to make ourselves right at home. Lucky dog is a great home base for hiking (nearby national forest, BLM area and wilderness areas offer tons of secluded options) or exploring the enchanted circle. The house itself is lovely, spacious and well appointed. Our dogs loved sunning themselves on the concrete patio. We would love to come back!
