About this listing
Cute, cozy and compact cottage that has all you need--queen bed + queen mattress in the loft, a private patio with stunning views and the quiet of a country setting at Los Pajaritos.
Our light filled Country Cottage is a stone's throw from our house an--Los Pajaritos and sports a sleeping loft with a queen sized mattress and a separate bedroom with a queen sized bed. One bath with shower, + a sunny living/dining room wrapped in glass and with views of Taos Mountain and Picuris Mountain complete the picture. In terms of the setting, we are a short hop into town, but like a recent guest said, the coyotes visit daily--the other day they spotted the magpies chasing one. And our outdoor cats come over to visit even though they are not allowed in. And as a guest recently noted--we do have A/C for this scorching June. We have just added a beautiful and private outdoor patio just so you can relish and drink in the big Taos skies day or night. Sunrises and sunsets are yours to enjoy and come nightfall, all those stars look close enough to pick out of the sky. If you stay with us please use the directions provided; do not attempt to find us via mapquest or a smartphone.
Lots of land to walk on; snow shoes; some bikes; any cooking utensils and equipment that we might have to lend. Outdoor grilling- yes. A fire pit - yes
Interaction with Guests
Happy to help you navigate our town, our valley and northern NM. We have lots of books on our area and love to guide visitors to restaturants, hiking, rafting, skiing and galleries.
A quiet country neighbourhood on the edge of Taos and Ranchos de Taos with big, wide-open views of the mountains all around. The acequia del rio chiquito runs by and in the evenings in the summer you will hear the splash of water on its way down to the fields.
You will need a car to get to us and to get around.
Other Things to Note
The cottage comes with a washer and dryer and if grilling outside is your thing we are happy to bring one over.

What a perfect place to stay in Taos! The views are breathtaking, and the little cozy cottage is the perfect size to call home for a few days. Sanjay was very responsive, and even made sure to check in with us even though he was out of town.
We enjoyed the studio. Great location, nice host. The only downfall was that we could not lock the studio when we arrived. Sanjay did fix this before we left. We are city dwellers so we like to lock our things.
Sanjay himself was warm and welcoming and all of our interactions were very pleasant. The cottage itself was a nice idea, very well laid out and just the right size for our little trip.
The Cottage was very pleasant. Sanjay is a very friendly and engaging host. He goes the extra mile to help you feel at home, and optimize your stay in the area. We had several minor issues (e.g. with internet access) which he took care of right away. The cottage has great views, yet nice privacy.
My daughters and I had a great stay at the Sweet Taos Country Cottage. The cottage was clean and nicely organized. The beds were comfortable and the welcoming committee was wonderful (friendly outdoor cats).
Sanjay was also very welcoming and had many helpful ideas on how to spend our time in Taos. My favorite was visiting the Earthships commune. It is a community that is self sustainable.
I can't wait to return to Taos and the cottage. Thank you, Sanjay!
We we're thrilled with the cozy cottage! It was the perfect size for three girls and had the most stunning views of the mountains surrounding Taos.
Sanjay was a welcoming and friendly host. He left us to ourselves for the most part but made it clear that we could call on him at any time. The location was a greatbecause we could get to all the places we wanted to go easily from there.
Loved the sunshade patio and the friendly kitties who came to say good morning.
Perfect size for a couple or friends who don't mind sharing bed space.
This cottage was the accommodation of my dreams! Clean, well appointed, cozy, and welcoming. The setting- picturesque and tranquil, just a short drive from the center of town. Sanjay and his wife Mara greeted us warmly and were readily available with helpful tips on what to explore around Taos. They were generous and considerate hosts, encouraging me to freely harvest herbs, offering us fresh eggs from their chickens, kindly forgiving our tardy departure (I misremembered the check out time), and even gifting us some tasty snacks for the road. I felt at home from the first moment I stepped on to the property. I would return with absolute gladness.
