About this listing
This beautiful and historic Casita and Schoolhouse Combo is perfect for large ski parties, families traveling together, and retreats.
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.
The newly restored casita has rich, fine furnishings and a soulful feel that welcomes and nourishes. The 1850’s schoolhouse where the Saint Teresa Mission nuns taught the children of Taos Pueblo has also been completely restored with modern amenities and a reverence for its history.
The master bedroom in the Casita 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.

About the Host, Jessica
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!
