Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

High Mesa Cottage is located on a 1.1 acre lot about fifteen minutes from the ski area and ten minutes from Taos Plaza. The house was built in 2004 on a mesa about five hundred feet above the town of Taos, and offers stunning 360 degree views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and Rio Grande Valley. No house in the area has better views of New Mexico's highest peaks and O'Keefe's much-painted Cerro Pedernal. No highway noise can be heard on this quiet lane as it is surrounded by open space, horse properties, and just a few other houses. Not many surrounding lights make ideal conditions for viewing the night sky through the supplied telescope or from the private hot tub located just outside. A high-speed wireless broadband internet connection is present allowing guests to keep in touch with the rest of the world.

Inside, the house has a modern, open floor plan with a large kitchen opening up to dining and living areas with 12 foot viga ceilings. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances, granite countertops, and high-quality cookware and utensils. The living room has an adobe fireplace as well as an entertainment center with satellite TV, stereo, and DVD. Radiant heated floors throughout the house make walking barefoot a pleasure. The house features numerous custom touches such as limestone windowsills, skylights and ceiling fans in each bedroom.

The master suite consists of a large bedroom with king-size bed, five-piece bath, and large walk-in closet, along with a satellite TV/DVD. The other bedrooms have queen beds, large closets, and mountain views.

Once here, we are convinced you will agree that this is a very special location and will want to return. Please take a look and call or email for more information.

Made us feel like home..Breathtaking Views, Beautiful Architecture

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at High Mesa Cottage for our moms 60th birthday! This was the perfect home for us to gather and celebrate this special weekend! Ben and Brenda were very accommodating with our check in time. This home has spectacular views of the mountains and Rio Grande Valley. You walk in the door and you feel welcomed and at home. The home is very well built and decorated from the vigas on the ceiling to the hand made coffee cups. The hot tub and telescope were a hit! Also the field was awesome because we played whiffle ball, volleyball and corn hole.

  • 5 of 5

This property was AMAZING. It was spotless and well equipped with anything that we may have needed from kitchenwares to extra linens. 20 mins to Taos Ski Resort, 15 to Taos and 5 to Arroyo Seco. Definitely hope to be back.

fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about how perfect this house was for us (2 adults and 2 teen boys). Perfect space, clean, excellent accessories (better kitchen equipment than my home), great views, luxurious linens, and great outdoor space. Owners were fabulous and quick to respond to any questions. Location worked great for us, half-way between slopes and Taos. We will definitely try to stay here again.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This rental home was everything we needed and wanted. The home was clean, and the kitchen had everything we needed for the cooking needs of 4 adults and 2 children. Great location between the ski valley and town. We will return.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. Very open and beautiful. The pictures don’t do justice to the views from the windows. Brenda and Ben were a pleasure to deal with and we would absolutely stay here again!!

Wonderful again!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in high Mesa cottage for the second year in a row and it was just as great as we remembered. Plenty of space for my wife and I, 2 children and my mother. The views of Taos mountain at sunrise are spectacular, and watching the stars from the outdoor jacuzzi are highlights of the house. Was an easy drive to town and to the ski area. We hope to do it again next year!
