Casita Blanca

El Prado

2 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms 4 Sleeps 1500 sq. ft. Pets OK

This place is perfect for a couple or family hoping to spend time in the peaceful, inspiring landscape of Taos, New Mexico. A beautiful queen bedroom with mountain views and ensuite bath will invite you for a relaxing night's sleep after a day enjoying all that Taos has to offer. A roomy open concept kitchen, dining and living space will make your crew cozy and keep entertaining fun for everyone. The livingroom has huge picture windows which can be shaded for privacy, or open to the full splendor of the view, and a 40 Smart TV with sound system, Roku, DVD player. Home is on 2 acres, with permanently protected Pueblo land to the north, and just a few lovely neighbors on either side with plenty of buffer. The second bedroom offers sleeping accomodation for two more adults or children on twin beds, or can be used as a work space separate from the living space. The second Bedroom has close acces to the other full bath. Full size washer and dryer are located inside the home. The interior is perfectly sized for a party of 4, but it is the outdoor spaces that make this home feel palacial. Back patio, accessed from the kithchen opens to a fenced yard, offers seating and table space, outdoor grill, and the sounds of songbirds and windchimes to accompany the beautiful views. Front courtyard offers blossoming spring fruit trees and bulb garden and yet another private space. There is no road sound here, and very little light polution, expect pitch darkness here on moonless nights. There are mature shade trees on the property which is a huge plus. If you have furry family members, we welcome them here for an additional pet cleaning fee, and they will enjoy the safety and freedom of a fully fenced area where you can throw the ball for them while enjoying the back patio. Situated about 15 minutes from the town center and Taos Pueblo, and about 25 minutes from Taos Ski Valley, you're close enough to enjoy town conveniences and cultural excursions, but far enough away to enjoy the iconic peaceful quiet setting Taos is known for. This home has all the views, the back patio faces the Sangre de Cristo mountains north of Taos, while the living room faces Picuris peak and the town of Taos, and to the west you can see the volcanic formations of the Taos Plateau. Both the Sunrise and Sunset shows are not-to-be-missed from this location. You're just minutes from the famous Rio Grande Gorge Bridge and Rio Grande Gorge area recreation opportunities. Although this location is a little outside the town center, there is a gas station at the junction of 522/64, and an amazing little Mexican restaurant called Toribios. Just up Ski Valley Road (Highway 150 at that same main junction) there is a brand New Ace Hardware going in, and a fantastic local pizza joint called Pizaos. Great dining, bar, and package liquor is available at Medley restaurant and wine shop just a few yards further north of Pizaos. The Village of Arroyo Seco, about 10 minutes from the home, offers Sol Food natural food market, and caf/bakery options, Aceq restaurant and Sabroso restaurant plus some tremendous locally owned shops and galleries. If you head the other direction back to the west on HWY64, you will find the Taos Mesa Brewing Mothership where they serve great house made beer and food and have live music nightly most of the year and offer a great outdoor space for large parties and events. Visitors flock to Taos for many reasons, but none quite so alluring these days as the incredible recreational opportunities. Multiple points of access for world class hiking, fishing, skiing, biking, etc. exist throughout Taos, Taos Ski Valley, and the Taos Plateau. There are countless places to explore within an hour's drive making this a wonderful point to come home to work in comfort and embark on day or weekend trips to some of the most amazing, pristine places in the Southwest.

Unbelievably beautiful views

by Janet

We booked this house for a last minute get away and we were not disappointed. A bit off the main road but Greg’s detailed directions made it easy to find. It was the perfect size for the three of us. Plenty of room to be together and plenty of room to enjoy the peaceful solitude. The house is very nicely furnished, comfortable beds, everything you could possibly need to cook a great meal in the kitchen and did I mention the views? Unbelievably beautiful views from every room and both porches. We had planned to do a number of things while in Taos, but ended up hanging out and enjoying the house, the amazing views and visiting with each other. We didn’t want to leave. Can’t wait to come back.

We’ll definitely book here again!

by Keri

We loved our stay in the adobe mountain view house. It looked exactly like the pictures in the listing. The kitchen was well stocked making it easy to cook all our meals. The king bed in the master bedroom was extremely comfortable. We loved using the wood burning fireplace everyday. The fenced in back yard was secure and perfect for our dogs to use and still provided a gorgeous view of the mountains. We’ll definitely book here again if we return to El Prado/ Taos area.

Expansive and Outstanding Views

by Traci

We really loved staying at the house. It was very quiet and relaxing. There are expansive and outstanding views of the high desert, blue sky, clouds, and mountains out of pretty much every window. And because the house backs onto Pueblo Land, the property feels bigger than it was. The yard was secure for our husky girl, and it was convenient to be able to walk her up and down the road (which can be tricky in Taos). We did build a fire in the kiva one night and in the chimenea another night. Appreciate the firewood that was supplied. Probably ate too many Taos Cow breakfast burritos but they are so goood and Arroyo Seco is not too far of a drive. We would definitely stay here again!

Really Homey and Inviting

by Kelly

The pictures don't even begin to do this beautiful adobe home justice. The place was stunning - location, home, and decor. It is nestled in the valley, surrounded by mountains - with incredible sunsets, sunrises, and light-colored sage as far as the eye can see. The home could not be more beautiful - picturesque views out of every floor-to-ceiling window. We loved the blinds - even closed they offered privacy but allowed you to be shrouded in the surroundings. The decor was southwestern, clean, and modern - really homey and inviting. They had nice set-ups on the front and back porches - rocking chairs, backyard table and chairs, chiminea. Communication was excellent - we asked for a couple of things that they provided immediately. I was so impressed. I cannot recommend this place and Greg and Cat enough. I will absolutely try to stay here again on my next visit.
