Great location - close to town but still rural - about 1.5mi S of Taos Plaza, 3 miles to Holy Cross Hospital, 18 miles to Taos Ski Valley (shuttle stop 8/10mi from house).
Beautiful views of Taos mountain and spectacular sunsets.

Heather's place is spacious, clean, comfortable, and conveniently located to town. Heather herself is friendly, flexible, and very good at checking in and responding to any concerns. I would highly recommend a stay at Heather's place if you're coming to Taos to ski or otherwise enjoy the area.
This accommodation was exactly as advertised. It was spartan, very clean and close to town. Heather supplied ample towels, pillows, blankets and coffee filters for her coffee maker. The little refrigerator and microwave were very useful.
Heather was always prompt and polite in responding to any question or concern. She was extremely easy to work with and respected our privacy. Because we were rarely around, we seldom saw her, but when we did, she was great.
Comfortable and clean! We loved the view out the bathroom and enjoy the rural setting that also is convenient to town. Heather kept in touch, although we'd run off early and come back late from our explorations. The autonomy fit our travel approach. Thanks!
A friend and I spent several days at Heather's place. It was very clean, roomy space and served us well. Because we were off sight seeing most of the time and Heather was busy, we did not see each other but twice. However, Heather checked in regularly by text message to make sure all was well. I would stay here again. It was good location that was away from town and yet close enought to get everywere we wanted to visit.
Quiet, clean with great views of sky and mountains. I love to stay here to think, write and read.
Wonderful quarters, we enjoyed use of the bathtub as well. Beautiful view, etc. - and most importantly, Heather and her daughter were very hospitable and amenable to our requests! A great deal.
Heather is a lovely host and her place is super clean. The room is just as pictured, lots of room and the bed is comfortable. The only problem for me was that I was expecting something a little more rural. The house is on the outskirts of town and right on a road that doesn't have a lot of traffic but is still used regularly during the day. There is a gate that is locked at night, not a problem for me but it may be for others.
I liked that the room has a separate entrance from the main part of the house so it is quite private- other people may want more socialization. I didn't feel that there was any place for me to hang out in the yard though and ended up just sitting on the steps to look out at the mountains.
I would have also liked more of a set up for breakfast. There is a microwave and a little fridge but nothing to heat water for coffee, and you need to have your own cups/utensils etc.
The location is really convenient, easy to get into town. It isn't a picturesque house but it is reasonably priced and clean. Heather was easy to get in touch with and attentive, got me set up and then let me do my own thing which is what I was looking for.
Gosh, Sheri, I would have been happy to answer any questions you had ahead of time or while you were visiting. I'm sorry you didn't ask. As with all guests, I asked you to please call or text if you needed anything at all while here. I am always happy to help. :-)
As I list in the ad, this is an inexpensive and conveniently located place to stay, kind of like a hotel room but much cleaner and more private and secure - its very zen, quiet, private, and serene. If, as a guest, this is not what you are looking for, please book elsewhere. Guests requiring socialization and posh digs with all the amenities will not find what they want here - please pay more elsewhere for the higher level of service you are looking for. What I offer, at the price I offer, cannot be found anywhere in this area. Anywhere. Guaranteed.
Clean, rural, quiet, peaceful space with great view. Heather is appropriately concerned with your comfort. Small fridge and microwave were useful. Location inspired me to drive back roads into the plaza area and I discovered more of Taos than I previously knew.
Great place! Just over a mile from Taos, everything was very clean. Heather was a great host, very helpful and even gave us some greens from her garden.
Heather's place was as promised and she was very easy to deal with and is recommended!
Note that she's on a dirt road. My GPS took me the "long" way to get there which was maybe a mile on dirt. However, she's only maybe 200 feet off the pavement if you approach from the other direction, which is much easier. I'd suggest to double-check the directions if you're using a GPS!
