Overview

New Mexico House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

High Mesa Cottage is located on a 1.1 acre lot about fifteen minutes from the ski area and ten minutes from Taos Plaza. The house was built in 2004 on a mesa about five hundred feet above the town of Taos, and offers stunning 360 degree views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and Rio Grande Valley. No house in the area has better views of New Mexico's highest peaks and O'Keefe's much-painted Cerro Pedernal. No highway noise can be heard on this quiet lane as it is surrounded by open space, horse properties, and just a few other houses. Not many surrounding lights make ideal conditions for viewing the night sky through the supplied telescope or from the private hot tub located just outside. A high-speed wireless broadband internet connection is present allowing guests to keep in touch with the rest of the world.

Inside, the house has a modern, open floor plan with a large kitchen opening up to dining and living areas with 12 foot viga ceilings. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances, granite countertops, and high-quality cookware and utensils. The living room has an adobe fireplace as well as an entertainment center with satellite TV, stereo, and DVD. Radiant heated floors throughout the house make walking barefoot a pleasure. The house features numerous custom touches such as limestone windowsills, skylights and ceiling fans in each bedroom.

The master suite consists of a large bedroom with king-size bed, five-piece bath, and large walk-in closet, along with a satellite TV/DVD. The other bedrooms have queen beds, large closets, and mountain views.

Once here, we are convinced you will agree that this is a very special location and will want to return. Please take a look and call or email for more information.

Peace and Beauty in Taos

  • 5 of 5

We have rented homes before from VRBO and this home was great. We arrived late at night and upon opening the door the home was very welcoming and clean. The views from the hot tub were superb and the gardens were beautiful. I enjoyed the peace and solitude in the hot tub each morning with the beautiful mountain views. We did not want to leave! I would highly recommend this property, it's amazing!!

Mountain Views and Sunsets in the Evening

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been coming to High Mesa Cottage for over 10 years. We always love walking through the door upon our return! It is in a quiet area off the road, away from the hubbub. The home has a well-equipped kitchen sufficient to make full meals for friends to enjoy around a common table. The living room is comfy with addictive views to the Mountain out the huge picture window. There is a sizable master suite that opens to a patio and back yard. The primary guest room is on the other side of the house. Being on the north side means Cid's Grocery is not far and great meals and music await at Sabroso and Medley. The Plaza is about a 20 minute drive. Viewing the night skies from the hot tub with the backdrop of the Mountain while coyotes howl from 3 different directions is at once both magical and fun. This year we brought our aging Golden Retriever who loved to lay in the fenced yard and observe the horses in the pasture nearby and other daily life in this rural neighborhood. During this stay/visit, we would wake up early to watch from out bed the sunrise from behind Taos Mountain, then run to the side yard to see the moon set on the horizon almost simultaneously. Just beautiful and magical. We must have 100 photos of sunsets taken from this home! Brenda and Ben are wonderful hosts and Don, the caretaker, is responsive to needs that come up. We could write a ton of wonderful words about this place! We are so grateful to come back each time to visit and stay.
