Hot Tub -Exquisitely Furnished and Renovated -Large Courtyard with fireplace

Holiday home in Ranchos De Taos with kitchen and patio
Historic (1790) walled adobe hacienda 6 miles south of Taos Plaza. The earliest Hacienda along the historic Camino Real.

Historic walled adobe hacienda bounded by the original "Camino Real" and the gently flowing Rio Chiquito river. Exquisitely renovated and furnished. Each room has a candle burning kiva fireplace and its own entry to one of three private courtyards.

The oldest section of the compound was constructed of two foot thick adobe walls prior to 1790. There was an influx of Spanish settlers at this time, migrating along crystalline steams flowing from surrounding mountain peaks into the Taos valley. The diminished threat of Comanche raids deterred prior habitation outside of the 1000 year old Taos Pueblo.

The Rio Chiquito area (now called Talpa) was included in the Cristobal de la Serna grant from the King of Spain in the 1600's. New Mexico trading expeditions to Mexico have a long history and were annual events in the 18th and 19th centuries.

In 1823, the adjoining Plaza of Rio Chiquito was formally established. A small chapel was built in 1828 beside the hacienda dedicated to "Our Lady of San Juan" in honor of the Jalisco Mexico shrine to the Virgin Mary. The beautifully maintained chapel was licensed in 1833 to hold divine offices (religious services) and is still in working use today. The original altar screen, painted by the sauntero "Molleno" in the folk tradition of northern New Mexico is prominently displayed. A formerly detached one bedroom casita with kitchen, living, dining area is now built into the outer wall of the hacienda served as a convent at one time.

The "Hacienda;s" open great room with a 20ft high viga ceiling and imposing kiva fireplace has an ambiance like none other.

The formal dining room with original brick floor and kiva fireplace leads to the hall from which all three bedrooms are accessed.

The three bedrooms and a den are situated privately from the main living area and offer quiet solitude. A steam shower and Jacuzzi adorn the large master suite with a king bed and flat screen TV. The den, adjoining the master bedroom, has a queen sleeper sofa and is perfect for sleeping two children or for a quiet getaway or movies on its large flat screen TV.

An outdoor grill and hot tub are easily accessible from all 3 units, still affording privacy from each of the units.. A massive outdoor wood burning kiva fireplace centers a covered patio with seating for the entire party.

The "Casita" (once the convent) has a large bedroom with a kiva fireplace and queen bed. The living room has a flat screen TV. and candle burning kiva fireplace. A small efficiency kitchen with soapstone counters and gas range is open to the dining and TV. area.

The "Art Studio" has been completely remodeled with a window wall overlooking a covered patio and large courtyard surrounded by latilla fencing (Aspen tree limbs) next to the river. This room accommodates two and has an all new bathroom with shower. Several skylights and a kiva fireplace provide an exceptional light and bright interior. A private driveway leads up to the studio's gated entrance.

The Hacienda is a "One of a Kind" Taos lodging experience and one that your party will remember and cherish for years.

Plenty of Space
This place is huge and has so much room for everyone inside the house and plenty of space outside to hang out as well. Check-in was a breeze and place was very clean. Easy 40-minute drive to Taos ski valley. Would recommend to any big group that was getting away to Taos for a ski trip.

Lovely hacienda
This rental is impressive in many ways. It is spacious, and the owner is clearly upgrading the property and furnishings with good taste that reflects the local culture. The kitchen is very well equipped. The great room is beautiful. In winter, we did not make much use of the outdoors, but the kids did use the hot tub, and the veranda one evening. The caretaker was terrific. Friendly and responsive. He even got out a Christmas tree stand for us. You should be aware that there are unleashed, aggressive dogs outside the compound walls. They do back off, but keep your pets close. We did not have a pest problem. In heavy rain, the roof leaked in a few places, and we have reported this. Also the electricity went out a few times, not too long, in stormy weather. You have to realize that Taos is a small town in a very rural area. This is its character and interest value, and in Ranchos and Talpa, you are really living in the local culture. As with a number of restored homes in the area, you are fortunate to be able to stay in pleasant surroundings while avoiding the inescapable hype of Santa Fe. You are still able to visit artist studios and galleries, buy great jewelry at the Millicent Rogers Museum, and so on. We are glad we made the trip and could stay at the renovated convent on the Talpa road. My only concern with the checkin was that arriving in the dark, we could have used more lighting. Overall, this is a good choice for a Taos visit.

Great Set Up for Family Reunion
This property was wonderful. It is only a few miles away from the center of town. There were multiple common areas and outside areas to relax together or in small groups. The kitchen is really well stocked. We stayed in the summer so if you are looking for winter time - it is fairly far away from ski areas. There were 10 of us and each couple had a bedroom. The only thing to be aware of is that the master suite is gorgeous and ginormous while the other bedrooms are fine but much smaller. Since it is a hacienda with multiple entrances - it was possible for some in our family to have a lot of privacy in the Cassita. Go and enjoy!
