About This Listing
Casa Betita is a historic adobe dating back to the mid 1800s. Casa Betita was home to generations of the same family until 2007. Since then, the house has been completely restored offering the finest elements of the 21st century with the charm, colors, textures and décor of true New Mexico including hand plastered walls, Kiva fireplaces, Vintage rugs and the artwork of local artists.
One can hear the waters of the Rio Pueblo and listen to coyotes gathering in the evening. The neighborhood horses and one donkey can be heard calling to each other and occasionally one might hear the bells from the church down the lane.
A pleasant 15-minute walk past horses, alfalfa fields and through back lanes to Taos Historic Plaza, shops and galleries, this is a home you will want to return to year after year. Taos is a year round destination offering breathtaking views, intriguing history and intimate privacy making for the ultimate relaxing and healing getaway.
Taos is a special place of many stories. History is rich here, and the journey of each visitor under the vast canopy of sky adds another layer to the richness of the place.
Experience Taos for yourself. You will be changed and fulfilled.

About the Host, Melissa
I live and work in the San Francisco Bay Area and sometimes in Northern New Mexico. My parents and grandparents were all born and raised in New Mexico and Casa Betita (named after my grandmother Betta with whom I spent many childhood summers in Santa Fe) is the realization of a lifelong dream.
I am an artist, writer and producer. Avid reader, yogi, world adventurer. My 10 year old Jack (website hidden) my sidekick. Skiing Taos Mountain is a joy and a thrill. (website hidden)
