Historic Adobe Casita, AIR CONDITIONING, mt. views back patio hot tub

Taos, New Mexico

Enchanting in-town adobe, Casitas Encantadas is a sanctuary with private country-feel and stunning views of Taos Mountain, yet conveniently located near the renowned historic plaza shops, restaurants, and galleries. The remodeled main house dates to circa 1895, is two bedroom, one large full bath and will sleep up to four guests; however, if your party is larger or if you want to spread out, you may rent the adjacent and totally adorable Casita/guesthouse. Guests will love the proximity to: downtown amenities (including the nearby Monte Sagrado Resort and Spa); world-class Taos Ski Valley; Rio Grande Gorge rafting, fly fishing and trail adventures; musical venues and parks; and fabulous museums recounting the fascinating history of this region.
The utterly charming, light-filled, double adobe main house has been updated with: hard-trowel plaster throughout, a modern kitchen, gas fireplace and a wood burning kiva fireplaces, refinished wood floors, hi-speed WiFi and HD Satellite TV, and a wonderful flagstone deck facing Taos Mountain and the incomparable Sangre de Cristo cordillera.

The cute beyond belief Casita sleeps two and includes: beautiful woodwork throughout, a thoughtful efficiency kitchen and dining area, bathroom with shower, full-size bed and living area, portal, HD TV and WiFi, and, yes, views that will knock your socks off!

The entire property sits on nearly .5 acres, is walled/fenced for privacy offering plenty of room for family barbeques/games, and borders the Rio Fernando, which flows magically during Spring run-off and into the summer. As if that weren’t enough, there is a historic acequia (irrigation ditch) winding through the property that flows during irrigation season. Experience the feel of a classic Taos property in a fantastic location! No smoking, please. Will consider your well-mannered pet(s).

    The overall stay was good. Felt like it was too pricey for what I got. Mattress was lumpy, coffee grinder broken, coffee pot slow! Bathtub sprayer was broken, the bathroom was dark, shower has no light at all. House was cute, clean, well decorated but sparse with supplies/utensils. Glad I came...wish I paid less.

    We had the best time at this lovely casita! Beautiful views, responsive property manager, lovely space. My 10-year-old son loved it, too. We drove to hikes (all 15-20 minutes away, so an easy drive), relaxed in the hot tub and roasted smores and hot dogs. SUPER well-stocked kitchen, which made cooking easy.

    Awesome place for an escape from Covid life. Close to town. Great neighborhood with cute houses. The house was adorable with rustic doors and fireplaces. Perfect with the casita for 2 couples to stay. Love the hot tub and grill. Some great additions would be more pantry space and the WiFi password wasn’t working for us.

    Wonderful, cozy, winter retreat.

    My family and I enjoyed our stay in this lovely home! We had everything we needed for a cozy relaxing winter holiday together. The home is equipped with lots of cooking basics and pots. There was plenty of wood to burn in the beautiful kiva fireplace. On our last day there we finally decided to brave the cold and jump into the hot tub. It was so worth braving the few seconds of cold to sit in the hot tub and look up at those beautiful snow capped mountains! We would happily stay here again!

    We had a perfect stay at the Adobe Casita! We LOVED the fireplaces throughout the house, which made our stay extra warm and cozy. The king bed was very comfortable and the home was well stocked with everything you could possibly need. The private hot tub on the back patio was clean, easy to use, and the outdoor fire pit was the icing on the cake. We also were very pleased with the location...close to town but on a quiet/secluded street. We would highly recommend this VRBO!

    We were very happy with our 4 nights stay at the house. We reserved both the house and casita for our visiting friend who joined us during a road trip in the Southwest. The house is well located, near town and three supermarkets. The kitchen is extremely well appointed with all utensils you need as well as BBQ. We used the hot tub to our delight after a long hiking day. The bathrooms are spacious and beds comfortable. Overall, this is very well appointed house on inside and can see it being used for winter skiing visits as well. We would rent it again.

    I travelled to Taos for a get together with my 2 sisters who arrived from the East & West coasts. We thoroughly enjoyed this cozy home that I believe was built in the 1950’s, but has nice modern upgrades including an upgraded bathroom and a modern, well functioning, kitchen. One of the highlights of the property is the wonderful hot tub on the patio that has a great Mountain View. The home is truly charming with lots of interesting treasures throughout. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

    The casita was the perfect home base for our trip to Taos! It had absolutely everything we could need or want and was decorated and maintained beautifully. We slept in the main casita in the master bedroom and the bed was so unbelievably comfy! It was a short 2 min drive to the center of town. We definitely could've biked or walked in warmer weather.
