Family-friendly holiday home in Ranchos De Taos
This is a wonderful old Taos adobe home. The original house (now bedroom #2) was once the home of a family of 9-kitchen and bath then were outdoors. It is thought to be 250+ years old and is considered an historical property. Like many Taos homes it was added to in the ensuing years.

This home is delightful for a couple. It is a spacious home which is unusual for an old adobe. The layout is perfect for a couple and would be especially comfortable for two couples since the two good sized bedrooms each have full, private baths and are separated by the sunroom and great room. There is a queen sofa sleeper in the sunroom and in the great room is another queen sofa sleeper. Both have new gel foam mattresses Both have all bedding. Cost for these sofa sleepers is $25 per guest per night which can be left at departure.
The house is cozy in the winter due to thick adobe walls, two operable kiva fireplaces and very efficient gas heaters in great room and each of the two bedrooms.. There is always a good supply of firewood under the carport.
Summer is delightful and cool inside with screened operable windows and swamp coolers . Great for outdoor living with a covered deck off master bedroom and a wonderful front flagstone patio/ covered portal with table and chairs, BBQ and outdoor fireplace. The house is furnished with interesting antiques. sculpture and original art. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready to produce those gourmet feasts or a quick snack for two. Bathroom #2 has a washer and dryer for those chores that call out even on vacation. The yard is fenced and well behaved dogs are welcome at a small additional fee. ($10 per night per dog. which you may leave at the home."Mutt Mitts" are located in a decorative box outside and "Dog Sheets" provided inside for sofas and beds.
This home was featured on this summers Taos Home & Garden Tour in August for 500+ tour goers. This is my fourth home to be featured on a Tour! Too much fun and such a great compliment to my style!
We just finished re doing both baths with tile and new tubs and great tilework around all kiva fireplaces as well as new flagstone hearths and bancos (benches).
If my calendar shows this home as booked please look at Vrbo 273116 or Vrbo 860840. These are two and three bedroom homes that I also own in Taos.

The house has a wonderful, peaceful feeling and yet is only a few minutes from all Taos has to offer..good restaurants, shops, galleries, the Taos Pueblo and many great outdoor activities).

Keywords: cozy, yet spacious, beautifully decorated and mountain views too and pet friendly

Wonderful Taos Getaway
Took our 2 dogs and had a very relaxing stay. Perfect yard for dogs and folks who like to sit outside and watch the sun set and the moon rise. Giant, tall bed in the master, and kitchen with an island. Eclectic art, vigas throughout, hidden gates and multiple porches, plus a studio. Would recommend and hope to make it an annual gig.

Authentic Adobe Experience with Family
We wanted to experience an authentic adobe home in a quiet neighborhood and this home was perfect. Having two working Kivas added to our love of this place since it did get colder at nite the days we were there. We would certainly stay here again the next time we visit Taos. It really is the Land of Enchantment! Thanks Melissa, we loved your decorating style! Sharon, Barb, Dianne and Dave from Wisconsin

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
My only complaint is that the kiva fireplaces were a selling point for me but there was not any dry wood, kindling, paper or matches. Also the house is filled with lovely voltive holders, but no candles. I emailed the manager, but got no response

Great home.
The properties that surround this adorable property were an issue for us. Otherwise this old home was something to talk about. Unfortunate but reality is the condition of surroundings.

This is my new favorite place to stay in the Taos area. So many touches throughout the home, and a great yard for the dogs: I will be back.
