Photos and Description of the El Prado vacation house rental

Live Large In This Stunning 7000 Sq Ft Adobe, 7 Fireplaces, Vigas & Beams

Accoring to legend, the Palacio was originally a Pony Express Stop, then re-built as an Art Gallery. It is now Converted to a Getaway For Groups that want LOTS of elbow room in a sprawling 7000 square feet. The South Gallery / Media Room is 34 feet long, the Main gallery even larger. There is the Palacio (main house), the Casita (guest house), Seven (7) fireplaces, and five(5) courtyards.

Send the kids to the North Gallery / Bunk Room and they will be in a world of their own, all the way across the Main Gallery. The Master Bedroom has its own fireplace and lounge, which is larger than most living rooms at 20 x 20.

The Dining Room has its own fireplace for cozy meals, or just to gather. The Pantry can handle meal preparation for large groups, and serves out to the Dining room. The eat-in Kitchen has room to serve an informal meal and its own fireplace.

The Guest House has its own bathroom, kitchenette, fireplace, living, study and bedroom. It is separately entered across the inner courtyard from the main house.

There is no other house like it in Taos. The Palacio is conveniently located near Arroyo Seco on the paved and plowed Ski Valley Road. Beds, futons and couches sleep 20 or more. With the optional Guest House, a total of 5 bedrooms and 4 baths will accommodate a large party; the guest house alone is sufficient for a small family or couple.

ABOUT PETS-- We are making the Palacio open to pets, but pet owners must be responsible. Pets are allowed in designated areas and are NOT ALLOWED on furniture, rugs or carpets. The pet fee is $300, but $250 will be refunded if the housekeeper confirms there are no pet damage or pet hairs left behind.

NOTE: The Palacio is mostly located on one ground floor, but includes numerous "changes of level" (also known as "steps") when passing from room to room. Please be alert and aware, and step up or down when passing a change of level. See, for example, the photo of the Foyer, which looks out over the Main Gallery below.
