About this listing

Springwild is a unique home with lots of artistic detail work. Every time I look around I see something new. Sitting outside is so peaceful and relaxing, and the view of the mountains is spectacular.

The space

Springwild is a three-acre property at the end of Boyer lane, where it's quiet. Spread out on our propery we have the Springwild Vacation rental, another small casita that we rent out as a vacation rental, a casita we rent out full time and our place, which use to be a wood shop. We are only five minutes from the Taos plaza but it feels like a world away, and twenty miles from the Taos ski Valley. We are surrounded by open fields that roll to the Rio Fernando and it's red willows, thousands of migratory birds and mountain views that will take your breath away. The colors at the edge of the day is what brings artists to Taos and the views of the Sangre de Cristo at sunset are incredible. Springwild is perfect for your family vacation or family reunion, wedding parties, couples getaway, friends retreat, or for an artist or writer looking for peace and quiet.

The house was built by artist, sculptor, architect, landscape artist, philosopher, gardener, dietitian, cook, poet and steward..... Malcolm Brown . He described life at SpringWild as an experiment in transition to a world of peace, happiness and fulfillment for all.

The unique structure of the Main House is brimming with detailed woodwork of a craftsman. This is not your ordinary house, the longer you're here the more you see. The whole south/east side of the house is windows. When the sun rises over the Canyon Saddle it brings the morning suns warm rays into the kitchen... a great morning spot.
The ground floor consists of the living area, full gourmet kitchen, one bathroom, one Master bedroom and the laundry room. Up a short flight of stairs next to the laundry room is a private bedroom with a view of the kitchen garden, the pastures, the Rio, out to the mountains.

The second level of the house holds two beautiful built-in king size beds lined by windows overlooking the property. To get to the second level you climb a ladder type stairway with rallings. There is also a veranda on this level to sit and relax and enjoy the mountain view.

On the third level is a cozy queen-sized sleeping area surrounded by windows, perfect for star gazing. This level is also has a ladder type stairway. The kids love this room. From here a stairway leads up to a warm, single person meditation room.

Just a few steps outside the main house is the 'Bath House'. This is a full bathroom, heated and carpeted with a beautiful mosaic shower/tub, toilet, sink and a large dressing area. The Bath House is shared by other people living on the property. For your privacy, just lock the door.

There is a large grassy area right outside the kitchen with a big picnic table, umbrella, BBQ, bar area, croquet pitch and a beautiful sunset of the Taos Mountains. During the summer enjoy eggs from our chickens and fresh vegetables from our organic garden. You will love this enchanted place.
You are 5 minutes from town where there are lots of art galleries, shops and restaurants, and 20 minutes from the Taos Ski Valley. Close by is river rafting, hiking, hot air ballooning and a links golf course. Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa is 45 minutes away.

Traditionally, I've used hotels for family vacations. This is my second AirBnB. This is the first time on a vacation (ever) that I would have been content to stay at where I was staying the whole time. There are so many places to explore and surprises around every corner. We were made to feel very welcome.

This place is amazing as are the people who own/run it. I would go as far as to say this is the coolest Airbnb we've stayed in. Diane was easy to communicate with and always accessible. Highly recommended.

This home is a true gem - the treehouse of your childhood dreams. It is so unique and peaceful and wonderful. It's the perfect blend of tranquil and intriguing. Diane is the kindest honest, and Hobbs is the sweetest pup. I can't wait to return to Springwild- I'll be dreaming of it until then.

The house and land are truly special. The hosts were great. The kids loved all of the ladders and lofts, not to mention the animals and scenery. When we left my 6 year old daughter said "bye bye magical house".

We hit it out of the park by booking this house for our family vacation! My grown son said to me the first day, "Mom, you picked the perfect place and let's come back here again!" We saw Diane, the owner, everyday working in the garden or feeding the chickens, ect...Our 3 little grandkids absolutely loved the chickens, the dogs and roaming the property. Diane brought us fresh eggs and cookies with grapes and cheese awaiting us on arrival. You can't beat waking up and going to bed with a view of the beautiful mountains! The house is one of a kind and has so many unique features. Plenty of beds and room for the 9 of us. Thank you Dan & Diane for hosting us!
