About Don Suskiewich

I graduated from the University of Colo, but of I am more of craftsman and was a builder for 35 years. I was originally from

Conn and have lived in Boulder Colo. I have a vacation house

on the coast of Maine where I get my boating in each summer.

I like this site as it has fruit and other trees and the high mesa views also. I am mostly retired and manage a office complex I built.

Don Suskiewich purchased this studio in 1990

Why Don Suskiewich chose Taos

This site has both the mtns and the mesa views. There are many trees and and an irrigation ditch. The Taos Ski Valley is only 8 miles away. The casita is on a driveway with other homes in a safe neighborhood.

What makes this studio unique

This casita is like a sampler of the taos architecture I built for many years.

Stay here if you can- quiet, comfortable, good internet, close to climbing, skiing, hot springs

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and quiet, great stars at night. Internet was good enough for me to work, I'm a developer. Close to Rio Grande Gorge (12 mins) where there is a hot springs, hiking, climbing. 15 mins to Taos ski valley, 15 mins to Taos- great location.

Fire is a big plus- we fell asleep with it going each night. Back yard is secluded by a fence, lots of light. Bathroom/kitchen are both great. Excellent value and Don is the nicest guy.

  • 4 of 5

I gave 4 stars because of the bed 😔? it was so small for two normal size people. Other then that nothing was wrong. Property was very clean and the location was great! We will re book the property, if Don changes the bed size to queen 😊?

The Casita was perfect. My Son and I were in town for a ski vacation and the Casita had everything that we needed and the location was close to Ski Valley, would definitely come back!

Compact, complete little Casita

  • 4 of 5

Nice, quiet location; windows all along south side look out onto patio creating bright, more spacious feel to this studio. Well stocked kitchen area, has indoor kiva and outdoor pit and we enjoyed both. Comfortable with everything one needs and 10-15 drive into Taos. We plan to return.
