Absolutely no smokers or smoking of anything in apartment! Even smoking outside is a no-no.

No pets. We are keeping this rental pet-free to support allergy sufferers. We have pets on the property, but not in the apartment.

We will always be as conscious of keeping a quiet environment for our guests as possible and ask the same in return. We do, however, share a wall with the apartment so you may at times hear our 8 year old, our dogs, or our coffee grinder.

This listing can not accommodate more than 4 very cuddly people. Best for 1-3 friendly adults or maximum of 2 adults and 2 children. We will try to provide a shoe horn if you are a family of 4.

If stay is longer than 2 weeks, a $70 cleaning deposit will be added, in addition to the cleaning fee ($35) already included in the price. After cleaning of rental is completed, some or all of this deposit may be refunded, depending on time taken to clean. Most cleaning supplies are provided in apartment.

I was traveling with my Father-in-Law to visit a sick family member in Taos. We wanted a small place just to lay our head at night and this cute little casita was perfect. It was a small casita, but there was just enough room for us to have our own space. The casita did not Feel small at all but it was absolutely homey and comfortable. Unfortunately, MacLaren was not available during our stay but her "farm sitter" was GREAT and on hand at all times. I would definitely use this airbnb again!

The place was perfect for what we wanted. I was trying to take the GF away for her Bday. It was on a quiet dirt road about 10 minute drive from downtown Taos. The unit itself was everything we needed: clean, good bed, shower, fridge, quiet, great value. Only issue i could potentially see is no A/C if it gets hot there. Weather was perfect when we were there, but i hear it gets hot in NM. MacLarens were great. Wish we would've taken them up on their offer to check out the goats and stuff though.

My boyfriend and I loved staying at MacLaren's place in Taos, and our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. The check in process was extremely easy, as they had given us clear directions. The apartment was spacious, clean, and comfortable. It was a great space for a couple to relax after a long day of adventures in Taos. It was extremely quiet at night, and the view of the stars at night was completely stunning. I would recommend staying here, and it was a great value as well. I wish we could have explored the farm more, but perhaps next time! Thanks a lot :)

We (MacLaren and Randy) live on a small, urban farm where we raise chickens, turkeys, bees, milking goats, have a large garden, and a young fruit orchard. I manage the farm, homeschool our 8 yr old daughter, and make various farm goodies which I sell to cover costs of animals feed and farm supplies (chicken and turkey eggs, fresh goat milk, chevre, feta, dairy kefir, cajeta, goat milk caramels, water kefir, sauerkraut, kimchee, and lotion bars). My husband, Randy, is a park manager for the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument. The remainder of our family includes our loving rescue Pyrenees, Molly, our puppasaurus Aysu, and our kitties Hagrid and Ivy. We enjoy caring for our farm, eating locally, and engaging in many outdoor pursuits, including white water rafting and canoeing, camping, skiing, mountain biking, hiking, etc.
