About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6 & Hot Tub On Acreage

Our Casa de Suenos (House of Dreams) is an adobe style home situated on the high mesa at the North edge of Taos with spectacular views of the Taos mountains and sunsets. (Here is a recent collage of time lapse scenes from our house showing the area and its natural wonders: ) With 1,650 square feet of living space it can comfortably accommodate up to 6 people and is eclectically and tastefully decorated. The two bedroom suites, which are at separate ends of the house, have new queen and king beds with plush new linens and towels. The master bath has a jacuzzi and walk in shower as well as a full bathroom next to the guest room suite. We have a futon and a new hide a bed with memory foam in the living room. And a brand new hot tub sits just outside in a private area. Our kitchen is fully equipped with newly purchased cookware, a gas stove and cook top, a full refrigerator with filtered water and an ice-maker and a large gas grill outside the door on the patio to cook while you're enjoying the mountain views. A beautiful kiva fireplace warms the living room with plenty of seating to enjoy from three plush couches as well as a large fire pit outdoors with ample pinyon wood for both. Our home is artist owned with original colorful Southwest paintings in all the rooms and many cultural touches from our world travels. Additional amenities include a 42' satellite HDTV, DVD library and player, wifi internet access, iPod docking player and a full stereo system, new hot tub, new washer/dryer with laundry soap provided, iron and ironing board, toaster, micro-wave, coffee pot, porta crib and jacuzzi tub and private shower in the master bath.

As much as we enjoy the home, we love the peace and quiet of the open spaces that surround us. And you may not have really seen stars and the Milky Way until you have spent an evening as our guests. The sage covered mesa has an old road, immediately accessible from our acreage, which invites cycling, jogging or walking all the way to the Rio Grande Gorge if you like, with views of the mountains around Taos, the Jemez Mountains far to the southwest near Los Alamos and the far western horizon.

We visit our Taos home on a regular basis and as a result, it is very well maintained. We are always thinking about what upgrades we need to make - for us as well as you. We also provide complimentary cleaning service at the end of your stay but you may make arrangements for additional house keeping services by contacting our agent Wendy at Taos Getaways.

About Wendy Rozzelle

We are living full time in Colorado but, having fallen in love with Taos and the environs of northern New Mexico, we decided to build a home here in 2007. We both love outdoor activities such as hiking the mountains and deserts, camping and visiting art galleries from here to Santa Fe.

Wendy Rozzelle purchased this house in 2007

Why Wendy Rozzelle chose New Mexico

We discovered Taos while on a desert and canyon road trip 20 years ago. The area was instantly magical and magnetic for us and we chose the Mesa north of town for the wonderful solitude, the views of the Sacred Mountain of the Taos Pueblo and the huge sky which offers wonders day and night.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Spent a beautiful week in this glorious house. Everything is beautiful, so well thought out, comfortable.

Loved having early morning coffee overlooking a "popcorn" of bouncing jack rabbits and cottontails.

Thank you for sharing this spectacular home.

This was a beautiful home! Very well kept and filled with so many special touches!

  • 5 of 5

The home was a wonderful retreat! We felt very welcomed upon our arrival. The lights and TV were on along with a note personally addressed to me, welcoming us.

The guestbook was a great resource for restaurants!

From the back patio we watched the sun rise over the mountains every morning and enjoyed this area in the evenings with a campfire.

So many specials areas to enjoy! Very peaceful surroundings, yet not desolate. Close to the quaint town (about 3 miles).

The owners personal paintings were a treasure to view every day! So much character in this place! Very warm and thought out.

We stayed with another couple and felt the space in the home was perfect. Bedrooms are on opposite ends, each have a bathroom. The master suite is very roomy.

100% recommend

My husband and I are from Arizona- travel to New Mexico often. For this trip we had a list: a great house, few neighbors, view, no freeways, no cities, a hot tub, the ability to see the horizon.

We arranged our vacation dates to what the availability was on this fabulous house.

Although we didn't need the second bedroom, the house was perfect for us and we really spent a lot of time there. Late mornings - coffee on the patio. Wine and a good book in the afternoon on the patio.


The house is perfectly located and you may feel you're in the middle of nowhere, but you're 5 minutes from town.

We drove the Enchanted Circle drive - an easy relaxed 3 hours with lunch in Red River.

Only one day did we save for ducking in to Santa Fe for some favorite shops. It felt like Disneyland and we left within 2 hrs (now I know why our SF visits are usually Jan- April trips). Our real priority that day was our purchase of Chimayo chile for our cooking and a plate of stacked Red Enchiladas at Rancho Chimayo - a must for us.

The house: I cannot say enough. I work in design and my husband is a professional artist. A visitor can certainly tell how esthetic the owners are. The flower pots and view from the kitchen window. The wildflowers planted on the outside of the fence, the art and pieces from travel.

From the custom front door to the same colorful Adirondack chairs on my own pool deck......I appreciated all the details.

(One of the disadvantages of some other rentals on our list did not seem to have decent patio furniture).

It became "home" to us very quickly. Instead of overpacking, we did a load or two of laundry.

We relaxed in the hot tub under a starry sky before bedtime.

The amenities were all upscale. Great bed. Huge master bathroom. Funny story- I ran a nice big tub and sank into it expectantly. Pressed the button for my much-anticipated spa bath. Except.....evidently the jacuzzi tub hadn't been used for awhile and each jet spit out an assortment of spiders, beetles, and bugs into my bath water. I managed not to drop my Kindle as I leaped my Grandma-ass out of the tub like an Olympian.)

Like any house, there were a couple of maintenance issues. We seemed to be cursed with the sliding glass doors in both rooms. No big deal, and we left a note.

Lastly, I would like to thank the Nilssons for being dog-friendly. "Seamus" loved getting away from AZ heat and spent hours sprawled on the patio loving the cool air.

Owner's Response: What a delightfully thorough review you have given our Casa de Suenos! And I apologize for the surprise residents in the tub jets, but I did have to chuckle at your wonderful story! And we appreciate the heads up about the patio doors. An issue we will remedy soon, as we are on our way to Taos as I write this. Again, thank you for your kind and in depth remarks. We hope to have you back again.....

We loved our time here. Great place. Well stocked with things that you always need that are never or rarely provided, we really appreciated that. It's a great house and we loved how easy it was to relax and hang here. A quick drive in Taos.

Taos, New Mexico grew up in the vicinity of the thousand year old Taos Pueblo, a World Heritage site which is still occupied. At various times of the year, it is the setting for ancient dances, little changed since long before Europeans ever set foot here. The public is welcome at many of these demonstrations of lasting Native American tradition.

The town has been a mecca for artists for well over one hundred years and the town to this day is filled with an array of fine art galleries featuring works of every medium. Joining these artists through the years have been a parade of authors including D.H. Lawrence, New York bohemians such as Mabel Dodge Luhan and actors. Dennis Hopper was a prominent local celebrity after having discovered Taos when making the classic 'Easy Rider'. There are multiple music venues in town with entertainment every night of the week somewhere and wonderful restaurants from which to choose.

Our house sits on the mesa just east of the thousand foot deep Rio Grande Gorge (with the Rio Grande here having been designated a Wild and Scenic River in 1968). In March, 2013, this became an integral part of the county's newest national monument, called the Rio Grande Del Norte. It is nearly a quarter of a million acres and according to the recent proclamation, was meant to protect the sweeping and austere expanse of the Taos Plateau, extinct volcanoes including Ute Mountain, San Antonio Mountain and Cerro de la Olla, and the landscape as a “testament to the geologic past of New Mexico and the 70-million-year tectonic history of the Río Grande Rift.” Check out this great link regarding the magic of the Rio Grande country being protected at

We are also just west of Arroyo Seco, the gateway to the canyon which takes you to the Taos Ski Valley, less than 30 minutes away. The road to Santa Fe is either by the main highway - or the more historic High Road, which begins near the famous church south of town at Ranchos de Taos and goes south to the village of Chimayo, featuring the famous 200 hundred year old destination for Easter pilgrimages, Santuario de Chimayo. Along the way are many small mountain villages, including Truchas where Robert Redford filmed the wonderful (and instructive) movie, 'The Milagro Beanfield War' and Trampas with its adobe church dating to 1760. West from the Rio Grande Gorge is the famous hot springs and spa known as Ojo Caliente and not far past that is Abiquiu and the 'Ghost Ranch' where Georgia O'Keefe lived out so much of her professional career and life.

Taos has much to offer the visitor, from fishing, whitewater rafting and hiking to gallery walks, fine restaurants and music. And its a place to slow down and feel the pulse of history and traditions while enjoying the beauty of what truly is the 'Land of Enchantment'.
