In the desert: Artisan Adobes, Taos, New Mexico
Located just on the edge of town in a quiet, pastoral country setting, Artisan Adobes four artisan adobe casitas are just a five minute drive to the historic plaza. Colorful and cozy. Comfortable and quiet. Calm and Uncluttered. The four traditional, elegant, sprawling old adobe homes are gorgeously furnished and supplied with more than you would expect in a vacation rental or hotel.
Most guests who stay here spend more time at home than they ever expected to! Natural mud plasters and richly colored stucco adorn the walls, arches and kiva fireplaces and saltillo tiles and antique rugs are at your feet. The colors, textures and decor are true New Mexico charm. The queen sized beds are fitted with fine high tread count cotton or flannel linens and an oversized goose down comforter and pillows. Step out the doors and each casita has it’s own private courtyard garden or patio. Pick from the organic vegetable gardens all spring, summer and fall, and watch my flock of beautiful chickens free roam in the yard. Sit under the shady weeping willow tree or in the New Mexican sun out in the orchard – or under the stars at night and drink in the magic of Taos. Cook up a beautiful meal in the fully equipped cook’s kitchen and dine at gorgeous antique dining room tables next to wood burning kiva fireplaces. Light some candles and sink in for the night. And if you absolutely need to check in with civilization, all of the casitas are completely furnished with satellite TV, laptop computers and high speed Wifi.
Your host, Richard, lives a few doors down the road to answer any questions and tend to any needs that you may have. And best of all, there are a gorgeous, well-tended flock of generous hens that provide all the fresh eggs that you’ll need to cook up for breakfast each morning! A stay at Artisan Adobes is perfect for solo retreats or romantic getaways for two, or for families or couples traveling together … it is priced according to how many guests come … it’s not to big for two … and it’s not too small for three couples!
