Artist's Adobe Casita 'Tween Taos/Ski Vly Dog Ok View, Charm

Located in: El Prado
Hi! -- if we don't have the nights you want, please check out our other listing VRBO 138474. It's on the same piece of land and has a separate entrance, larger fenced yard, awesome view, and a dishwasher!!

Note: dog policy at the end :D

The casita (this listing) is located on a high ridge between Taos and Ski Valley on the Valdez Rim Road with a spectacular view of the Valdez Valley. An authentic old adobe casita, it's serene, quiet and private. Only 15 beautiful minutes up the mountain to the ski lift, five minutes to the charming town of Arroyo Seco with great restaurants and shops, and a lovely 20-minute drive back to town!

Adjacent to an artist's home, the casita features TWO kiva fireplaces, skylights, saltillo tile floors, and an old viga beam ceiling - a typical Taos adobe! And a large portal (porch) to enjoy the cool breezes and the awesome view. It has it's own laundry room and it's own, fully-equipped kitchen. Honestly, you can pay a lot more and not find a place as wonderful!

(See the floor plan by clicking on the 'FLOORPLAN' link which follows.)

The living room has a banco (a large window seat) with a wonderful view of the valley and mountains, a signed kiva fireplace built by a local legend (this 73-year-old Hispanic genius - a grandmother - climbed on the roof with a chainsaw to cut the hole for the chimney!), and a satellite TV with over 100 channels. A single futon in the living room is available for sleeping, as is the couch and a large window seat (banco).

A complete laundry room comes with washer and dryer, a fullly equipped kitchen with colorful Mexican tiles, a romantic bedroom with down comforters, a queen-sized bed and a kiva (traditional New Mexican fireplace). The casita has it's own entrance and a separate telephone line so you can be very quiet and private.

This old home is a local landmark with a wonderful view out over the Valdez Valley to the Sangre de Cristo mountains from two covered porches.. wonderful for writing, painting, or simply getting away from it all.

Our check-in time is 3:00, checkout is 11:00 -- we know you'll hate to leave!

Pets: The casita has a private entrance and separate fenced yard -- we welcome one or two good dogs.*(see note). Sorry, no cats (our good dog will eat them).

Smoking: There is NO SMOKING in the casita.

TO MAKE A RESERVATION: We have a 3-night minimum. We are not often home to answer the phone! Thanks.

*dogs must be housebroken, people! No peepads. No pooping in the house! I can't believe I had to say this.
