The space

Elegant upscale Mexican contemporary on edge of national forest in Taos foothills. Serene and secluded but only four minutes to Taos Plaza, thirty minutes to Taos Ski Valley and about the same to Angel Fire. The guest wing that I rent out contains a bedroom with queen bed with memory foam mattress; a full bath; a sitting room with large screen tv, mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven. I generally rent to single people or couples.

I have a dog---a large Weimaraner named Wilbur---who is extremely friendly. He may bark at new arrivals but is otherwise quiet and laid-back, which is atypical for his breed.

Guest access

The guest wing has its own entrance from the west end of house plus a private outdoor sitting area. The great room and east wing of the house are for my personal use although long term guests can use washer/dryer by special arrangement.

Interaction with guests

It depends on whether I'm here or not and how busy I am.

The neighborhood

Quiet, exclusive neighborhood of custom homes on large, treed lots bordering Kit Carson National Forest. Local trails are popular with hikers, mountain bikers and dog walkers but only four minutes to center of town.

Getting around

Ample parking on my acreage but no public transportation. You really need a car to stay with me and if there has just been a snowstorm four wheel drive is helpful for navigating the gravel roads in my neighborhood.

Other things to note

Shampoo, conditioner,hair dyer and various styling potions and lotions provided as well as basic dishes/glasses/cutlery, and some do-it-yourself breakfast items. Also guidebooks and brochures and maps of local attractions.

My cat and I lead a quiet life, punctuated by the occasional dinner party attended by hyper verbal creative types. I'm a writer/editor/designer but my real passion is my horse, Chance. (It used to be skiing moguls until I wore out my knees.) I've lived all over the United States and, for five years, in New Zealand on a dairy farm and in Christchurch. (And I often wish I were still there!)
