What we like about this property

We like this beautiful waterfront spot and the thoughtful, eco-friendly way this house inhabits it. Designed with both rugged industrial materials and polished interiors, the effect is rustic and stylish.

Description

Located along the Taos de Fernanda River in a grove of one hundred year-old cottonwood and willow trees, Rio Eco House is a steel and stone home designed by father and son architectural team David and Jordan Vaughn. Situated within a pristine and ecologically sensitive area, the materials and construction are a master work of environmental design. With a simplicity of form that’s inviting and uncomplicated, the home is intuitively laid out both inside and out.

The interiors feature ten foot vaulted ceilings and large high windows that let the sunlight in and frame the forest views. Custom woodwork and cabinets boast elegant inlay designs and are topped with black granite. In keeping with green-friendly building methods, the home is completely water efficient and makes use of eco insulation, appliances, and heating systems throughout.The two bedrooms are arranged on either side of the main sitting room and kitchen affording privacy for up to four guests.

A large stone deck with a spa sits near to the river’s edge and there’s a sweet little meditation hut off to the side where where you can enjoy the peace and quiet and the beauty of the natural environment. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES 

Qwest high speed wireless internet throughout. High definition satellite cable TV with Blu Ray DVD and music channels, stereo audio system with CD player and music library, games, books and land line telephone. Laundry facilities. Activities and restaurant guides and local maps. Security system and off street parking. 

AROUND

Located under three miles up beautiful Taos Canyon highway and just five miles from the center of Taos, this area is ideal for enjoying both the historic culture and excitement of the pueblo and the natural beauty of the high desert environment. The Taos de Fernando River snakes through the property and the nearby Carson National Forest with many hiking trails nearby. You are just forty minutes to the slopes of Taos Ski Valley and thirty minutes to Angel Fire Ski Area.

  • Hands down one of the best vacations I have ever had. The Rio Eco House is the perfect little getaway. The house is fully stocked with everything one would need to have a worry free vacation. We could not have asked for more. We will be back!

    This home is the real deal! My wife and I usually always get a vacation home instead of hotels and this has been our favorite place we stayed in the lower 48. David and Meriden went above and beyond creating a relaxing retreat. Thank you so much. We will be back!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Eco Rio. The dwelling was modern and incredible. Everything was well thought out and designed. Loved how the Vaughn family created this peaceful retreat using their special gifts; lighting, carpentry, architecture, landscape design, and spirituality. The master bedroom has the most comfortable and cozy bed. It was wonderful to sip coffee in bed while enjoying the spectacular natural scenery right outside our bedroom window. Kitchen was well equipped and had every convenience of home. The Vaughn’s provided much info of Taos and surrounding areas. They included a narrative of their experience in Taos, which was heartwarming. We loved the outdoor deck, spent hours in the hot tub enjoying mother nature at her finest and listened to the gurgling stream that would freeze and thaw daily. Especially interesting is how the angle of the sun slid across the intense blue sky along the mountain ridge daily. We would love to go back. A most enjoyable experience!

    Wonderful stay!

    We stayed at the Rio house over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, a perfect space for 2 couples! We loved the orientation to the river from the back deck and hot tub. Lots of natural light warmed the living space. We loved the simplicity of the artistic cabinetry and woodwork designed by Jordan. One feels the love and attention to detail throughout the home. We feel fortunate to have been able to stay at the Eco Rio house.Can’t wait to go back and stay longer!

    Truly a special place

    The Taos Rio Eco Dwelling is a true treasure! Nestled along the riverside in the canyon we felt like we were in a remote spot far away from the city, but to our surprise we could get to the center of town in less than 10 minutes in the car. We slept so well listening to the river at night and awake to 360 degree views of beautiful scenery in the morning. There was so much detail put into building and designing this cute place, it shows! We already booked our next stay here we love it so much.

    Taos Rio Eco Dwelling has everything I could want in a vacation rental.

    Quiet and serene surroundings, well equipped kitchen, and a hot tub. The meditation hit along the creek was an unexpected and very special addition to my stay. David and Meredith are excellent hosts. Very responsive and very caring about their guests. This is my 2nd time staying here and I look forward to staying here again.

  • jcregan, July 23, 2014

    I was researching eco homes I thought I should leave a review for the home that has literally changed my life. The place & views were all immaculate! I am honestly trying to find out if I could build a home like this in Illinois. Me & My husband and 2 daughters stayed here over spring break 2013 and couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Huge fan of the radiant floor heating, the split bedrooms, kitchen amentities, spaciousness, unique style.. I could go on & on!

  • William S., June 21, 2014

    The house was absolutely beautiful–one of the nicest properties we’ve ever stayed in. Furnishings were great, especially the memory foam beds, which made it difficult to get up in the mornings. Kids loved the backyard with running creek. And the location was perfect–out of town yet close enough to make a quick run for forgotten supplies. As others have stated, the proximity of the highway isn’t really a problem. We felt completely secluded and never heard much road noise.

    We’d definitely stay here again. Thanks, David, for the great service and wonderful stay.

    Just spent a lovely week at the Rio Eco House. It’s a well-designed small home on a beautiful piece of land. Even though it’s close to the road, once you’re behind the fence, you’re transported to a private mountain retreat. The house is beautifully appointed in modern style with two large, comfortable bedrooms and two bath. Taos plaza is only three minutes away. We had many great meals at Taos Mesa Brewing Company (try the New Mexico Philly Cheesesteak) and The Gorge (the green chile grilled cheese sandwich is my favorite). Also, the onion rings at Pizano’s Pizza are out of this world! We will definitely be back.

    Rio Eco House is about a five minute drive to Taos. Very clean and has everything you if you are cooking during vacation. Very relaxing to enjoy the hot tub and the steam in the back yard. Although close to the road you won’t notice much noise. I would recommend this place to anyone and would stay there again.

  • colleen c., May 20, 2013

    This place couldn’t be more perfect. Morning coffee on the stones outside with the bright sunshine and creek. Days spent in the mountains with signs of bear and elk all around. Evenings relaxing with wine and lovely meals cooked in the lovely kitchen that has everything. Seriously, this place has everything you need. Even the knifes are sharp enough to cut tomatoes without smashing them. Great home with very cozy beds and furniture. The hot tub was such a bonus. It was such a tranquil place to escape and we are so very grateful. Next time we visit Taos, we will stay here again.

    We really enjoyed Rio Eco House – living indoors and out. Provided a perfect base to explore the area. Very comfortable, loved the hot tub and the accompanying burbling stream. Home was nicely designed, well-appointed, and easy to use. Already recommending to friends. Great place!
