Our little place consists of a charming one room log camp-cabin with a double bed, kitchenette, dining and sitting area, and bathroom. The spot has sweeping mountain views, and is aromatic with sage and piñon. We are in a small village located 4.5 miles south of the Town of Taos, and we are open from March 1 to November 30.
Our quaint little cabin is a stone's throw from our own home in the old farming community of Llano Quemado, (a 10 minute drive from Taos Plaza). The one room building has a full bed, a living and dining area, kitchenette with gas stove, a (freezer-less) refrigerator and full bathroom with stall shower (no tub). The structure was originally a summer camp cabin that was moved here from Ute Valley Park, Colorado twenty-five years ago. Sunrises and sunsets are daily marvels, and at night the stars shine bright. The hot springs are a short drive and short hike up the road. The springs is a peaceful, quiet, remarkably private outdoor place (and it is a sacred place so remember to be respectful).
Guests have full access to the cabin and its grounds. You can explore the immediate area beginning as soon as you step out the door. Take a walk (or a jog, or bike ride) on any of the quiet country roads that surround the property--the scenic views are amazing from in all directions.
