Dogs are welcome (please select pet fee on reservation).

The space
The entire home has been designed and furnished to give you and your guests the feel of a boutique hotel, all while having little to no impact on its surrounding environment. We're just 2 miles past the Taos Mesa Brewery Mothership location.


Imagine waking up to the sun cresting over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, slowly filling your solar powered luxury home with warm morning light. Ahhh, that coffee has never tasted better! The Modern Taos House is a short drive to the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument and the Sangre de Cristo Mountain is your playground, giving you the best that the Southern Rocky Mountains have to offer. You'll be surrounded with fantastic views and the tranquility of a mountain ranch.

Gather friends and family and spend the day skiing the runs at Taos Ski Valley. Or, take your group whitewater rafting to the infamous “Taos Box” of the Rio Grande, in the summer, that is!

At night take in a show at the Taos Mesa Brew Mothership located at the end of our street. Or, take a quick drive to the Taos plaza to eat, browse the many unique New Mexican art galleries, shops and spend time with friends at the local bar.


The house is designed with an open layout. The modern industrial styled kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could need to entertain your friends and family, featuring a huge hand-polished concrete island and 6 barstools for gathering. Pass the chips and dip! The dining room table was custom built and functions as a ping pong table, too. Game on! We also have a 55” Samsung Smart TV and Samsung Bluetooth sound system if you choose to spend your day cozied up in a blanket or dancing the night away. Additionally, both bedrooms have a smart Roku TV.

This home, finished in August 2017, will impress even the most well-traveled guests. The home was built with the latest off grid technologies and runs mostly off solar power and rain water. Cool right?!

We promise you will be talking about your trip to the Modern Taos House for years to come!

My name is Austin. I am a website designer and avid traveler.

A few years ago I left everything I knew and moved to a place I had never been, nor did I know much about. Yep. I wanted to devote my life to what made me happy. And this is it.

Here's the thing ... I have two loves ... be creative and traveling. Living and breathing the outdoors is what gives me life while my creative side drives me. So that is what I do. I have built a life around doing what I love and I hope you can see that throughout our home.
