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 Vauhn. 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.

  • 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!

    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.

    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!
