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). $105 per night, $650 per week plus $50 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 small rural road with a few other houses nearby. The space is intentionally not cluttered. For longer stays, arrangements can be made with host to use her washer/dryer.
Jeanne's place is very clean, comfortable and quiet. We had a lovely low-key Thanksgiving here and enjoyed getting out and hiking every day in the surrounding areas. The house is well stocked with anything one might need and is very cozy in the winter. Beautiful views of the mountains. We also greatly appreciated the eco-human-friendly cleaning products and the non-toxic environment of the house. Great place to stay for chemical sensitive people.
This is my second time renting Jeanne's place. It's always meticulously clean and organized. I am sure I will be back again. Thanks Jeanne & Nancy for always being on call when I needed you!
Beautiful home with great views of the mountains. Well appointed and conveniently located. Very relaxing. Love the writing nook, can't wait to visit again.
Jeanne's home truly exceeded all of our expectations. The home was beautiful inside and out, a perfect location with amazing views. Check-in and check-out were very easy. We could not recommend a better home to stay in if you are visiting Taos. It is the perfect location close to Taos Ski Valley, the Gorge Bridge, and many of Taos' shops and restaurants. This was the ideal setting for a relaxing vacation. We would be happy to stay at Jeanne's home again if and when we are back in Taos.
The casita is exactly as described and (website hidden) is a unique and well-equipped casita just a few minutes from Taos with a marvelous collection of books and a responsive owner and host - a great choice for a Taos vacation.
The Private, Quiet Artist's Retreat is a gorgeous spot! Situated just outside of town on a private little bluff with 360 degree views, you couldn't find yourself in a more ideal location. The house itself is immaculate and peaceful with beautiful views and a number of giant windows. It's a great place to star gaze and watch the local jack rabbits feeding on the brush. Inside, the house is extra comfortable and generously stocked with all you need. Jeanne is a gracious and kind host. My experience at the Quiet Artist's Retreat was absolutely fabulous!
Jeanne is a wonderful communicator and was quick to respond throughout the week. The casita is perfect for solitude and amazing beautiful views! The house has some really neat design and is perfect for a week or a month! Thanks Jeanne
This is really one of the most gorgeous homes I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Every detail of it is just lovely, we felt so lucky to be here. It felt a bit bigger than we were anticipating it to be and the location puts you right out under the stars. Nancy the host was warm and welcoming and Jeanne was always considerate and gracious in our correspondence. I could not recommend it more; we hope to come back!
We had a wonderful time staying at Jeanne's place. Communication was great from go and we were greeted by her wonderful neighbor/host Nancy when we arrived. The retreat is adorable! Very spacious and great for relaxing, taking in the views and clearing your mind. Lots of space all around the building as well. It was snowing while we were there and the house stayed nice and warm. We loved it so much and would return in a heartbeat. Thank you Jeanne and Nancy for your warmth and hospitality!!
I completely enjoyed my stay at Jeanne's house. It was quiet, extremely comfortable, clean, and very attractively designed. I felt completely at home right away and had a wonderful week. I'll be back!
