Thanks Joanne, it was a pleasure to have you come and relax. And yes, the summer is a whole different experience of lushness, of green and flowers, so please consider another visit when you can get away!

About the neighbourhood
Great area for long walks or leisurely stints in the garden areas. The home is easily accessed from two main highways, north of the town of Taos about 12 minutes yet feeling like you're off the beaten path. Here on the property there are swings and dining tables and seating in different areas along with a covered patio lounge on the hillside for hanging out with a good book and some incredible views of the valley. The Chapel here is awaiting some restoration work but you are free to wander the land and pick some beets or carrots or other veggies out of the greenhouse. The berry orchard produces great raspberries in the summer and some later bloomers in the fall. Please help yourself!
Getting around
Bring a car as there are no taxis or uber rides and only limited bus service to very limited areas.
