Spacious, private four room suite in elegant and sophisticated southwestern contemporary home. Located on edge of national forest in Taos' most exclusive neighborhood yet only four minutes to Taos Plaza, half an hour to Taos Ski Valley and Angel Fire
Casa de Ventanas is on the edge of the Carson National Forest yet within biking distance of Taos Plaza.
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 is actually a spacious suite of four rooms: bedroom with queen bed with memory foam mattress; full bath; sitting room with large screen tv, mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven; office with desk and daybed. I generally rent to single people or couples.
If you like animals I have them and they're friendly. The dog, horse, and mini-donkey are all available for petting.
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.
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.
Ample parking on my acreage but no public transportation. You really need a car to stay with me.
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.
Well-behaved,non-shedding dogs are welcome. Yard is fenced. Please use separate entrance to guest wing accessed from parking area and west portal. Appliances in guest wing are for breakfast and snack preparation but not suitable for major cooking. No smoking anywhere, please.
Susan's home is beautiful and so incredibly cozy! The private room is very comfortable. Susan made me feel so welcome and feel that I could have as much privacy as I wanted or I could interact as much as I wanted, she was truly a wonderful and friendly host. :). The location is perfect. Far enough out of town to get some good fresh space with incredible views but close enough to town that you never miss the action. I would recommend her space to everyone and absolutely go back!
Was my second time at Susan's house. It was wonderful. Amazing and beautiful house. Susan is super nice and very helpful. Highly recommend staying here.
Wonderful experience. Convenient location and cozy space to relax in after a day of skiing. Guest wing was private and welcoming. Susan even leaves breakfast snacks and robes for her guests!! Highly recommended and great deal for the price!
The listing was more beautiful and cozy than I imagined! I would love to stay here another time when visiting Taos. Susan was welcoming! At the same time, I felt like we had all the privacy we'd need. Perfect!
As usual, my stay at Susan's beautiful house was wonderful. The private wing of her house is beautiful and has beautiful views.
Wonderful location, room very nice. Views outstanding. Close to everything but removed enough to be absolutely enchanting place.
Sitting on the back porch and reading was a joy, as was just looking out the windows over the Taos Valley.
My week-long stay at Casa de Ventanas was absolutely delightful. Susan was a charming host, warm and welcoming, and I enjoyed getting to know her. The guest suite was private, beautifully furnished, and offered outstanding views. It has my highest recommendation.
My dog 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!)
