Welcome to Pinon Paradise Casita, our serene mountain retreat! Located between Taos (10 miles) and the Ski Valley (9 miles), it is perfect for summer and winter activities. Shops and restaurants in Arroyo Seco are only 3 miles away.
This home is unique in ways that only exist in Taos! The casita has high Vigas ceilings and radiant heat through the custom slate floor. Beneath a bank of windows with mountain views is a one of a kind sandbox- it can be used as a zen sand meditation garden, or hours of play for young and old alike!
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need to prepare meals. There is one king bedroom and a queen sleeper sofa (that is actually comfortable! It is a platform pull out with a gel mattress). There is one full bathroom. Outside, there is a private hot tub with overhead string lights.
The extensively landscaped grounds are shared with the main house. Guests are encouraged to pick and eat seasonal herbs and vegetables as well as cuttings from the wildflower garden. Depending on the time of year, you may be able to enjoy herbs, fresh vegetables, apples and grapes! The fire pit is surrounded by four large Adirondack chairs and encourages you to sit and relax (blankets are provided for the cool desert evenings).
Please note there is a second home on the same property, situated with maximum privacy for each home. The homes are about 20 yards apart. Each home has it's own driveway and hot tub, but the grounds (fire pit, garden) are shared by both properties. If you have a larger group, please see the listing for reserving both properties as a "compound."
While this is a new listing, this property has been rented for years with numerous five star reviews. We have decided to rent without a management company because we want to know you, our guests, better!
If you are travelling with small children, there is a pack and play available.
4 wheel drive or chains required during snow.
