About this listing
Simple, secure, & sanitized space.
We welcome visitors to share our magical Taos experience - beauty, art, spirituality, & character. We create a peaceful, independent, zen space for visitors to our lovely valley. Bienvenidos!
Super-clean, pet-, chemical-, and scent-free accommodations for sensitive and particular guests. :-) I provide what I want when I travel - quiet and ultra-clean.
Our property is a magical garden (yes, magic!) with lawn for morning yoga/prayers, medicinal herbs/veggies/flowers, and visiting wildlife. A sacred space, slightly more than 1-mile from the Hanuman Temple and Taos Plaza. To preserve our peaceful energy, we exclusively accept guests with a minimum of two positive reviews from other airbnb hosts.
We always welcome our return guests with special appreciation.

Large bedroom - 13'4" x 16' plus 5'x12' closet w shelves, plus bath w 2 sinks, shower, big tub. Cream-colored wool carpet, very clean, very quiet, bright and peaceful. Separated by locked door from host living area and absolutely private. Includes mini-fridge, microwave and coffeemaker for your convenience. Three bath towels, three washcloths, and 5 hand towels are included for each reservation up to a week - extra linens provided for longer visits/more guests.
Queen bed & single daybed included, plenty of room for air-mattresses or sleeping bags if you've got 'em. For more than 3 people, guests may choose to expand into adjoining room with air mattresses, etc.
Private entrance & parking, fenced and gated secure property. Not fancy, but serene, zen, studious, conscious atmosphere. Private like a hotel room, but MUCH cleaner, quieter, and more secure. Everything is sanitized completely between guests - including ALL linens washed (even mattress-pad, comforter, all blankets, carpet, etc). Everything is washed, even if it doesn't looked used.
Comestibles and toiletries not included.
Great location - close to town but still rural - about 1.3mi S of Taos Plaza, 3 miles to Holy Cross Hospital, 20 miles to Taos Ski Valley (shuttle stop 9/10mi from house).
Beautiful views of Taos mountain and spectacular sunsets.
Incense, sage, and other natural scents welcome, but no tobacco smoking indoors.
Pets are discouraged and never permitted indoors. We have two large German Shepherds who are personable but aloof and highly unlikely to permit other dogs on property. We are not set up for children under 14, but clean, conscious, and respectful young adults always welcome.
"Alternative" lifestyles always very welcome. Security, discretion, and privacy ALWAYS 100% guaranteed.
Perfect for visitors on a budget visiting Taos for retreats, classes, workshops, internships, nursing rotations, secret liaisons ;-) , and just to get away to enjoy our amazing outdoor activities.
Come enjoy northern New Mexico magic!
2 night minimum
Includes all utilities (plus wifi!)
Barters considered too.
Exactly what is listed - completely private entrance and parking. Gated and locked property - open and close gate when arriving or leaving. No shared space with host, but we are happy to say hi, and likely share some garden magic. :-)
Interaction with Guests
Usually meet guests on arrival, show them into the space, and after that just text or message to check in. I'm always available by phone for urgent needs. :-)
Quiet, rural, pastoral, green and lush in summer, close to town, great neighbors.
The Taos Chile Line is the local bus service around town and to the Taos Ski Valley 9/10mile to nearest stop. There is also the "Blue Bus" which offers daily regional transportation, and the Rail Runner train, which goes from Santa Fe to Albuquerque.
Other Things to Note
Property is gated and locked, manually operated - necessitating getting out of the car to open and close the gate whenever arriving or leaving. This could be difficult for individuals with mobility limitations, but is necessary for security (and to keep the dogs from leaving).
Shoes off indoors ALWAYS - we have a nice little cherry bench to sit on while removing shoes inside. :-)
Microwave, mini-fridge, & coffee-maker (with filters) included.
Smoking tobacco outdoors only; 420-friendly anywhere on property.
No indoor pets (not even ours).
No shoes indoors - did I say this already? (remove in entryway, slippers provided if needed)
Maintain peaceful vibe.
HL is very welcoming. We appreciated the country location which is secure and private.
Huge, comfortable and clean accomodation with great views.
We'd certainly visit again and recommend to friends and family.
Staying here was an absolute joy. Upon arrival, HL greeted us, showed us around, introduced us to her lovely dogs, then let us be. Both rooms were incredibly clean and her two heaters did a great job of keeping the place nice and cozy during the winter weather. Due to specific health reasons I had to leave early and HL was so accommodating and understanding. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Taos.
We had a great stay here for 3 nights. The room is very clean and the host is welcoming. The big tub in the private bathroom is wonderful!
Beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and inviting sunny space with lots of room and a spacious bath~ We enjoyed being removed from town with just a short commute to go back and forth. And very close to the Neem Karoli Baba ashram & Hanuman Temple !
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I was doing a performance in Taos and I needed a quiet spot to work and rest. Heather's place was just that - affordable and just what I needed. 5 minute drive to center of town, 20 min walk. Beautiful view of the mountains. She has two big dogs, but they're about as laid back as they can be. No worries there - once they know you they pay you no mind. Heather welcomed me, got me set up and then I was on my own - just what I wanted. Wireless worked perfectly. It was super quiet and quite comfortable. If I need a room in Taos on my budget, I'd go right back. Saved me money. Taos isn't cheap!
About the Host, H.L.
We are quiet and studious, enjoy gardening and natural health, outdoor activities. I was a small business owner for many years, working on second career now, enjoying beautiful Taos.
I find hotel rooms to be quite germy spaces and I avoid them as much as possible when I travel. I try to create for my guests the experience I like to have - a super-clean, quiet space and not much interaction with the host.
I clean with rubbing alcohol and essential oils (even the carpets get damp-mopped) after every guest to ensure an extraordinarily clean and chemical-free environment, just as I like to have for myself. All linens are also laundered after every guest - all comforters, blankets, sheets & pillowcases, all towels and bathmats/rugs. ALL of it. Even pillows are washed and/or tumbled in a hot dryer with eucalyptus intermittently.
If my guests need anything, I am happy to help - otherwise I ensure privacy and an uninterrupted stay. Please remember that I can keep rates low because I do not provide amenities such as shampoo, food, laundry, tourguiding, etc.
We do so look forward to hosting your enchanting visit to Taos! :-)
