The grounds are beautiful and relaxing. There must be 20+ areas to read a book, catch some rays, admire the mountain views, and share coffee or a drink. The hot tub is crystal clear and inviting. The interior is very open and filled with beautiful...More

One could not land in a more enchanting spot in New Mexico. The grounds were jaw dropping gorgeous with beautiful foot paths and points of interest at every turn. One could simply stay here and never venture to sight see and still have an experience...More

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.
