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.

We have stayed here several times and we always enjoy it.

We love the quiet and the beautiful views. Always clean and comfortable. The small creek running through the property is wonderful. And the trees this time of the year are awesome. We have come to think of it as our home away from home.

Owner's Response: What a treat to get to know a precious couple like this over time who truly appreciate my casita, nature and are always warm, kind and loving to me especially now at this very hard time of my life when I just lost a loved one.

Paradise INDEED!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights last week in the Casita. It was a WONDERFUL, peaceful experience, and there couldn't be a more beautiful location! It is very quiet and serene, but still within a few minutes of modern conveniences. And there are TONS of fun things to do in nearby Taos, Red River, etc.! The house itself is very spacious, modern, clean, and comfortable, with all of the appliances and hi-tech amenities thay you'll need (Dish TV, DVD, wi-fi, etc.). The owner Patricia and her assistant Dianne were very helpful and accomodating throughout our stay.

We were so happy and comfortable there that we didn't want to leave. And they also have a LARGER house on the premises available for rent to bigger groups of people. We sincerely thank Patricia and Dianne for a wonderful stay, and we highly recommend it to ANYONE!

Beauty and Serenity

  • 5 of 5

This is such a lovely property. The only thing more alive and genuine than the land in this area is the owner herself. The casita was simple and peaceful. I especially loved the stories Patricia shared regarding the property, land, and her family. It was hard leaving this place to go back to the city, but we’ll be back!!!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to Red River. We loved the property around the house with the creek and bridge. We sat around a campfire and enjoyed the sights and sounds of mother nature.

Great vacation..

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Little Casita for 29 wonderful days. This is a very cozy place for "2".. but slept 6 for a week and was adequate. Yes, there were a few minor problems, but as soon as "Pattie" was told..the problem was quickly taken care of. The weather was perfect...the Aspens were turning. There is a lot to do and to see in this area, so this was the perfect place In between Taos and Red River. Our adventure included 2 weeks of nightly visits by a mother bear and her 2 Cubs..of course that resulted in morning clean up of the mess they made. As I said..we had a wonderful time. I can not tell you how wonderful it was to work with the owner.. Pattie is great!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time!! Patricia was absolutely awesome. She gave us a complete list of things to do and to go see. We loved the house. It's tucked away and is very private but we had easy access to tons of fishing and hiking. Patricia recommended that we go see John Dunn bridge which was our favorite place! The house was perfect for our family and our dogs! We highly recommend this property!!
