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.
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!
We spent a week in this casita. It has an amazing privacy fence that really tucks it away from the street. The creek with all the trees creates a tranquil space. The kitchen has most any thing you would need to make meals. Bring food along or stop at the grocery store in town. The master bedroom was most comfortable. So great to stay in an adobe in New Mexico. Wifi worked well. We could easily research the places we wanted to see or eat at. Red River is a short drive and it's easy to get to Taos too. So much to do in the area that we will have to return. The neighbor across the street saw us out walking to the nearby fishing lake and shared some info on trails and roads in the area for great scenery. This was our first time booking a place in this manner. Patricia was very helpful answering questions and providing recommendations. If you need to know what is provided, just inquire before booking. We enjoyed this special property.
We stayed over the Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately this was a last minute booking that was dog friendly. We never received any detailed email from the owner on location and directions. In such a rural area this is a must.
The landscaping was shoddy, this may have been their last rental for the season but attention to accommodations is a must. Yard was wild, gate broke, bucket and mop at the front door. FIRST impressions are lasting ones. Mold visible in master bath, please keep in mind humidity is usually less than 10% in NM. Front entrance was not at all pleasing, bland in comparison to the rest of NM rental housing.
Maybe we were looking for something grander; especially at the price we were charged. Not impressed with the whole experience. Won’t return and really can’t recommend.
My husband and I loved the Casita! It was cozy and comfortable. Very well furnished with everything we needed. We enjoyed sitting outside listening to the water flow through the creek. The property was perfect because we had our trailer with our Polaris Ranger on it. We were able to park it without any worries of someone stealing it, running in to it while parked or going through it during the night. Super easy access in and out with the trailer. The Casita is only 15 minutes from Red River and 35 minutes from Taos. If you like to fish, the Hatchery is a 7 minute drive!!
There is a great local lake within 1 mile and Cabresto Lake is only 8 miles from the property. This was our first trip to New Mexico and staying at the Casita helped make it a magical time. We are looking forward to staying there again next year!!!

We spent three weeks in Questa exploring the Enchanted Circle and geocaching through the beautiful mountains - what a great escape from the heat of Casa Grande, AZ! Patricia was a great host - so easy to work with and so responsive to any questions or concerns. The casita is nicely equipped and so peaceful. The high speed internet/wifi and the DirecTV were great amenities. We recommend this VRBO.
This was the second time that my wife and I stayed at the Casita (See also my 2012 review), and once again we LOVED it. The house is very spacious, clean, and comfortable, and the location is perfect! It was very peaceful and quiet, with lots of tall trees and a running stream just a few feet away. And of course its only 10-15 minutes away from Taos and Red River, so we could never run out of fun things to do nearby!
Patricia was very helpful. We recommend this little hideaway for anyone!
