Town - Walk to Taos Plaza 1/2 block - 18 miles to Taos Ski Valley

Welcome to the true feel of 'Old Taos' in the 100 year old 'Historic' private compound of 'Blue Elk Casa'. In the owner's words she tells us why this home may be just the one you are searching for to enjoy your valuable vacation time:

'In our mini-hacienda you are one block from the down town central plaza with all the wonderful food, art, shopping and museums you could wish for. At the same time your home base is nestled in a totally contained private home that has been hand-painted and crafted with love and which just 'feels good' to be in. We also offer to those family or friends traveling or celebrating together the choice of staying close but of having separate complete spaces when the need or desire arises. The second story unit (Blue Elk Up) has its own private entrance, private open deck, kitchenette, large living room and full bathroom with tub/shower combo. Blue Elk Down has two master bedrooms one with tub/shower combo & the other with walk in shower only. Both units have large enough living rooms for the entire group to gather for meals and visiting. This unique Up and Down separation is ideal for members needing quiet get-away time and space from the hustle and bustle of group activity.

In the afternoon and evening you are footsteps away from some of the locals favorite restaurants and cafe's. At 'Blue Elk Casa' you will be staying in one of the most authentic historic Taos vacation rentals offered in Taos, New Mexico. Come and experience true Southwest charm and architecture with adobe walls, viga ceilings, kiva fireplaces, bancos and nichos! Most important - you are a two minute walk from Taos Plaza and able to enjoy total and absolute privacy from neighbors or passers-by in this serene adobe walled compound.

Reviewer Comments:

This rental was absolutely perfect for our family vacation!!! The house was roomy and very had such an at home feel we all felt comfortable from the moment we walked in. The outside patios were perfect for evening gatherings and the upstairs became our spot for our “game nights” together! The location made it easy to walk to everything....the square, lots of shopping, and even within walking distance of a local grocery store. We didn’t need our cars much during our stay, but parking outside the house was never a problem either when we did. I highly recommend Blue Elk Casa as a perfect vacation getaway spot!!!

The House was exactly everything we needed. Two families with four kids. One family stayed upstairs, our family was down. It well stocked with everything we needed to cook meals. Location couldn't have been better. Walking distance to the square. Would absolutely stay here again!

We came with our adult children for Christmas and it couldn’t have been better! The house was very inviting and we were able to spread out by renting the bottom and top unit. The caretaker was very helpful and responsive to any requests we had. Woukd rent again.!

Reviewer Comments:

We were pleased with our 6 day rental of Blue Elk Casa - both the up and down spaces were comfortable and perfect for our stay. The location is great for both walking to the Taos Plaza and driving to all the sites. The key code entrances were very easy to use for checking in as well as securing the key for easy access among several guests.

Reviewer Comments:

Units are not connected in fact they have a wall several doors and access to street between them, ok but the upstairs unit smelled moldy, plus the trash wasn't taken out before us so once we emptied the trash we got some of the smell under control, upstairs has not been swept or vacuumed in a long time, plus the wasps nest so we could not enjoy the outdoor patio upstairs..we all bunked in down stairs and the upstairs was useless to us. Our cars were egged every night. Loved the area, but wish we would have chosen another place to stay.
