Overview

Photos and Description of the Taos vacation house rental

House, up to 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-12)

Casa de Cuentos - House of Stories -3400-square feet COZY and LUXURIOUS home- NEW ADDITION and remodeling: Art-Studio 1000 square foot addition and remodeling in our home as of Feb. 2016-a picture-perfect place to BE to find your 'story.' Tranquil and mystical, your daydreams and night dreams here will delight you. Located halfway between the town of Taos and the Taos Ski Valley, our adobe 'home-away-from-home' is private YET close to everything you may want to do while in the Taos area... IF you feel like leaving. (15 minutes to town and 20 minutes to ski.) PLEASE EMAIL TO ASK ABOUT OUR CANCELLATION POLICY..THE AUTOMATED PROGRAM WILL NOT LET ME ENTER OUR POLICY..and, we do have one.

Our home is just recently back on the vacation rental market after a hiatus where we lived in it and remodeled it on and off for three years. It was a vacation rental as far back as 2007 and much loved by guests as you can tell by reading the reviews. We are excited to offer it, once more, to vacationers in the Taos, New Mexico area.

We are convinced you will love our home as much as we do and not care to leave the premises often, yet you could choose to do so with ease. Our hot tub, den-bar area, art studio, and game/movie and book library will provide lots of entertainment. Sit by one of the four Kiva fireplaces and Firepit Courtyard area to dream stories, tell stories or write stories.

Wood-beamed ceilings, wood and saltillo tiles throughout add to the warmth and tenderness of Casa de Cuentos. There is a separate recreation room area with additional living room and Kiva if one needs space from others while visiting. A beautifully, talavera-tiled breakfast bar sits in-between open kitchen/dining area.

CASA de Cuentos: The main house has 4 bedrooms (a KING bed in master and QUEEN beds in the other two bedrooms-.the 4th being a art/studio- living area-mini-kitchen with sleeping-built in TWO XL Twin beds and another regular twin bed) and 2 bathrooms (one with a large shower and the master bathroom has a deep, soaking tub) and a HUGE den with a BAR and BEER COOLER-with extra sleeping space. (There are three living areas where extra aero beds supplied if needed-up to 12. There are actual beds for 10.) You have fabulous views of the mountains out the north-side: large windows frame the mountains perfectly and let them into the living/dining area. To the south - you have expansive views of the valley and hot air balloons can be viewed floating eye-level or below in the distance. Daytime: Taos-turquoise blue skies during the day and STARS in the night-sky are so close you can touch them while sitting in the hot tub in the courtyard. (I just got out of the hot tub and I need to report there are more stars here than I ever knew existed...it is 'plum' full of stars--as my Grandma used to say.)

The views from the second-story NEW art-studio-living-mini-kitchen area are THEE best in Taos--360 degrees of turquoise skies and mountains and sunrises and sunsets. Watch the moon rise, watch the sun rise and sun set..from the art studio-heaven!

Pinons and sagebrush are the native plants that blanket the grounds of Casa de Cuentos and their sweet smells are all of the aromatherapy you will need while at this tranquil adobe. Two outdoor living areas: a deck with a hot tub in N.E. courtyard with new flagstone patio with a built-in firepit facing the mountains and a new patio on the South-side facing the valley. The NorthEast courtyard has a huge fenced in area (fence is 6-ft. tall) for dogs' pleasure and well-being.

Beginning supplies of: basic spices, laundry soap, shower/bath gel, paper products and firewood all provided.

If you have more than 12 people-you should consider renting this WITH Casita Ave Maria--right across the driveway. It also has hot tub for SIX and a steam shower! Casita Ave Maria VRBO.com/295657 (We will rent this CASA de Cuentos out for more than 12--but, you need to ask us, please.)

Casa de Cuentos - the perfect place for a few people to have solitude and/or for a family or two to come together to share and create more life stories.

(Can you tell Dave loves to design and build?)

35 minutes from Red River/50 minutes from Angel Fire/1 hour from Ojo Caliente/1.5 hours from Santa Fe/2.5 hours from Albuquerque/3.5 hours from Colorado Springs/4.5 hours from Denver/Right next to your heart!

Guest comment : My husband and I, our two grown daughters, son-in-law and grandson had the best vacation ever at Casa de Cuentos! The home is cozy and warm -- very relaxing and peaceful, comfortably furnished and well maintained. Our family could not have been made to feel more at home. The views from the living room and dining room windows are spectacular. The location is secluded but also convenient to both town and the ski valley. We will absolutely stay here again.

Guest Comment: A magical place! The photos do not do it justice -- it is serene, romantic, beautiful, peaceful, idyllic... My boyfriend and I were so inspired we decided to get married while we were there! My Mom and brother were so inspired at what we did, they mended relations after years! The magic continues....Thanks to Tammi and Dave!
