The space

BEAUTIFUL HISTORIC CASITA is secluded yet an easy walk to the plaza!

Rich in history, this home was originally Saint Teresa's Mission in the late 1800's. It became part of the Mabel Dodge Luhan Estate in the 1930's. During that time influential guests, including Ansel Adams and D.H. Lawrence were inspired to create, cavort and exchange intellectual ideas at the many salons hosted here. Victor Higgins, member of the infamous Taos Society of Artists, housed his studio here. The home is presently a Registered Historic Landmark.

Bordered by sacred Taos Pueblo land, the views are vast and the light ever changing. Georgia O'Keefe was inspired to paint her famous cross series upon seeing the light play on the old morada which sits behind the house.

This newly restored casita has rich, fine furnishings and a soulful feel that welcomes and nourishes.

The master bedroom features a Tempurpedic king sized bed dressed with luxurious linens, a TV with DVD library and an historic book collection.

A full bath with large closet, writing desk and concealed washer and dryer combo is directly off the master bedroom.

The cozy living room has a kiva fireplace surrounded by cushy velveteen sofas, one of which is a queen sleeper.

The fully equipped vintage kitchen includes a quaint dining area and settee which converts to a sleeper.

The garden courtyard surrounds a Japanese Maple tree and has a kiva style BBQ grill, hot tub and large dining table.

Wonderful views from each artwork adorned room. All artwork and sculptures available for sale.

Sleeps up to 6. Port-a-crib available.

Very nice property. Vintage means what it means. Kind of old and thread bare but the location made up for it. Property is clean and neat. The yard area is beautiful yet overgrown and needs tlc to really shine. For the price and ability to walk to main town it is well worth it

We are glad we chose the Casita Morada to stay in in Taos.Previously we had stayed in a a B and B and a motel. It is within walking distance of downtown, but situated in an area with great quiet, character and privacy. Taos mountain and the Taos Pueblo lands are directly in back. We enjoyed the generous amount of space and "suite" of rooms in Casita Morada, and could feel the history of the place, as evidenced by the paintings on the walls, as well as the excellent tour we took of the Mabel Dodge Luhan house nearby, The house has its own kind of early twentieth century artistic elegance, ( as well asa washer-drier, kitchen facilities and jacuzzi, which we enjoyed immensely), but if you are looking for ultra-luxury you probably should stay elsewhere. Jessica lives nearby and was helpful whenever we had any questions about the facilities or the area. The Casita Morita is truly one of a kind!, and our stay was one of the highlights of our recent one week trip to New Mexico!

Beautiful and enchanted place 5 minutes walk from Taos center. We have stayed there twice now, and it's never long enough. Can't wait to go back. Cozy, romantic, very special. Jessica is a 5-star host, even though we haven't met her yet - she is very responsive to calls/emails, and makes sure the place is perfectly set up for our stay. Simply amazing. Thank you Jessica!! Thank you Casita Morada. Cheers, Lee & Micah

I am thrilled to be part of a fun loving family. Our collective love of art, music, fresh air, travel and learning keeps our lives vivid and full of wonderful memories together.

One season we are taking in the crisp autumns, snowy winters, breathtaking mountain vistas and eclectic history of Northern New Mexico. Next we are soaking up the warm sunshine, tropical breezes, luscious flavors and sacred spirit of the Hawaiian Islands.

We are privileged to have found ourselves stewards of three remarkable properties in these magical locations. We have lovingly revived these homes, taking great care to honor the history and sacred space of each one.

It is our pleasure to share with you, our gracious guest, these special places so dear to our heart. Welcome, and may your visit with us become part of your own collection of wonderful memories!
