Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

La Casita at Paradise Creek is the perfect place to relax and soak in the mountain air of Northern New Mexico. Nestled beside a creek and surrounded by cottonwoods on 3.2 acres in the mountains of Questa, La Casita is a beautiful and well-placed getaway. Just on the outskirts of Questa, a quaint, heritage-rich village, La Casita is a short, scenic drive away from both Taos (25 min) and Red River (10 min), and only a ten minute walk from Eagle Rock Lake. The abundance of natural beauty in the area offers endless opportunities to enjoy nature, from fly fishing and trail hiking in the spring and summer, to hunting in the fall, and skiing and snowboarding in the winter.

La Casita is an 800 sq. foot, two bedroom, 1.5 bath home, with a distinctive New Mexican flavor. The master bedroom has wood floors and a comfortable queen bed. The second bedroom has saltillo tile and a Murphy’s bed that turns into a double sleeper. There is also a sofa sleeper (Quadro - folds 4 ways) in the living room. The kitchen has handcrafted wood cabinetry and saltillo tile. The home comes fully stocked with linens, kitchenware, a washer and dryer, wireless internet, satellite cable television, and a DVD player.

La Casita is located at the secluded northern end of the property. Please inquire if you would like to rent the main house, Casa Leyenda (House of Legends), that sleeps up to 10 people, which is located at the opposite end of the property. (VRBO # 354783)

Questa is located on the Enchanted Circle scenic highway, near the confluence of the Rio Grande and Red River, and is at the western base of the Taos Mountains.

Peace and Quiet!!!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at the Casita. It was early Spring, so the weather was all over the place - from snowy days to warm afternoons. But the Casita was perfect for whatever the day held. From the property, it was easy to get to just about anywhere in North Central New Mexico - Red River and Taos are my particular favorites of mine. And the house is a perfect jumping on point for the beautiful Enchanted Circle Drive. And it was so relaxing to just sit by creek that runs through the property and listen to the birds in the cottonwoods. But even when the weather was inclement, the house was cozy and had everything I needed or wanted. And Patricia was ever helpful and a wealth of information about the area. If you are looking for a nice quiet place to serve as a home-base for your adventures, this place can't be beat!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about the Casita. Super clean, quiet ,relaxing, beautiful. The bed was so very comfortable. Convenient to both Red River and Taos. If I had brought my hammock, I might never have left. My husband is already talking about when we can go back. Patricia was very kind and easy to deal with. I highly recommend this place!!

Delightful get-away located along the NM Enchanted Circle

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the casita. Patricia is a very gracious hostess, allowing us our privacy and trusting us with her property. The stream was about 30 steps from our door and provided a beautiful backdrop, we enjoyed the scenery and getting to hear the running water every time we were outside. The place was very clean and the kitchen nicely stocked. Patricia was immediately available if we had questions. We were 15 minutes from Red River and 25 minutes from Taos. On the nights we did not want to drive back into town for dinner we grilled out on the gas grill and fixed some sides to go with the meal indoors. It was very comfortable for my husband and I and our little dog. Thank you, Patricia, for a nice getaway!

Owner's Response: It is important to note, the grounds have received an inordinate amount of snow and I was unable to get the "not so tall" grass cut because it was so wet right before these people got there. I went the day after they left, I myself cut the grass, and did not see any trash. I wish he would have notified me, I would have gotten someone over there immediately to pick up any trash. Pat

Peaceful Oasis in Questa, between Red River and Taos

  • 5 of 5

If you are headed to Red River or Taos this little beauty is for you. It is such a peaceful oasis. There is a beautiful stream behind the house that you can listen to. The house is perfect, with living space and a great fully stocked kitchen. Patricia is always available to answer any questions or help with what ever you may need. We definitely plan on going back and staying in this beautiful VRBO.
