This is an elegant one-bedroom home on the mesa, about ten minutes from downtown Taos. There is no exterior landscaping but the interior is a work of art: floor to ceiling windows, hand-plastered walls, hand-made cabinets and doors etc. There's a king sized bed in the bedroom plus built in drawers and a closet. Cozy propane stove. Writing nook overlooks Taos Mountain. Very private and quiet. No pets, perfume, or smoking allowed - the house is safe for chemically sensitive people (like me). $115 per night, $690 per week plus $60 cleaning fee. Discounts available for longer stays up to two months. For one week stays or longer, there's a $150 damage deposit. This is a great place to write, paint, meditate, or contemplate your life. I have a small interesting library of books. The host lives across the road and is available for questions or help. The house is located on a quiet rural road with a few other houses nearby. The space is intentionally not cluttered. As of May 2017, there's a brand new in-wall air conditioner/ heater as well as a comfy new couch.
Interaction with guests
I live in Boulder Colorado most of the time but my host lives just across the road and is available for questions, directions, emergencies, and general information. I'm also available if necessary by text, cell, or email.
No pets, smoking, perfume, or strong smelling chemicals. The place is safe for people with chemical sensitivities (like me). Please don't leave house with windows wide open - the wind comes up suddenly and can blow pictures off the wall. Please don't cut on any wood surfaces except cutting boards. You may use anything in the house.
