La Casita at Paradise Creek is the perfect place to relax and soak in the mountain air of Northern New Mexico. Nestled beside a creek and surrounded by cottonwoods on 3.2 acres in the mountains of Questa, La Casita is a beautiful and well-placed getaway. Just on the outskirts of Questa, a quaint, heritage-rich village, La Casita is a short, scenic drive away from both Taos (25 min) and Red River (10 min), and only a ten minute walk from Eagle Rock Lake. The abundance of natural beauty in the area offers endless opportunities to enjoy nature, from fly fishing and trail hiking in the spring and summer, to hunting in the fall, and skiing and snowboarding in the winter.
La Casita is an 800 sq. foot, two bedroom, 1.5 bath home, with Saltillo tile - a distinctive New Mexican flavor. The master bedroom has wood floors and a comfortable queen bed. The second bedroom has a Murphy’s bed that turns into a double sleeper. There is also a sofa sleeper in the living room. The kitchen has handcrafted wood cabinets. The home comes fully stocked with linens, kitchenware, a washer and dryer, wireless internet, satellite cable television, and a DVD player.
La Casita is located at the secluded northern end of the property. Please inquire if you would like to rent the main house Paradise Creek house, that sleeps up to 6 people, which is located at the opposite end of the property. (VRBO # 354783)
Questa is located on the Enchanted Circle scenic highway, near the confluence of the Rio Grande and Red River, and is at the western base of the Taos Mountains.

I spent a week at the Casita. It was early Spring, so the weather was all over the place - from snowy days to warm afternoons. But the Casita was perfect for whatever the day held. From the property, it was easy to get to just about anywhere in North Central New Mexico - Red River and Taos are my particular favorites of mine. And the house is a perfect jumping on point for the beautiful Enchanted Circle Drive. And it was so relaxing to just sit by creek that runs through the property and listen to the birds in the cottonwoods. But even when the weather was inclement, the house was cozy and had everything I needed or wanted. And Patricia was ever helpful and a wealth of information about the area. If you are looking for a nice quiet place to serve as a home-base for your adventures, this place can't be beat!
Good location. Close to red river and taos but far enough away to feel remote. The property was nice. Creek running by the house was lovely. We enjoyed our 3 day stay.
Wonderful cabin! The setting with the snow and the creek was a magical place! The grandkids had a blast playing in the snow and making snowmen (some of them bigger than themselves with the help of PaPa & GiGi). The cabin was warm and toasty and very comfortable. Patricia's only concern was that we were totally satisfied. We have stayed in rental homes and cabins all over the country and have never experienced the concern and total commitment to our experience as was displayed here. Great memories that will last a lifetime! We are definitely planning a return , possibly for the summer and winter.
Our family of 4 arrived late and had a little trouble getting in with the lock but eventually got in. Patricia was very nice & helpful. The cozy and rustic cabin was great. Enough room for all of us and our things. The outdoor setting for us was the best. The mountains in the back, tall trees and yard all filled with snow, rustic cabin, the fire pit area (we built a fire ) and the beautiful creek running through the property was ideal. Thank you Patricia for providing us a great place to stay for Christmas! :)
This property is very cozy and in a quite secluded area. If your looking to get away and have some piece and quite this is the place. It has everything you need and the property is just beautiful!! Me and my family stayed 5 nights and is was wonderful. Patricia the owner is wonderful and she is very informative of the area and the house. She's a pleasure to work with and I will definitely be renting from her again.
A 10 minute walk to Eagle Rock lake for great fishing and property also has a running creek on the 3 acre lot for your enjoyment.
