Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

nestled amongst the pines and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, on the high road to Taos, lies the village of Truchas. The Village was founded in the year 1754 by the King of Spain who granted land to several families (of which many still remain). There are numerous artisans that live and work in the village. Weavers, potters, sculptors,painters,wood carvers, furniture makers, contemporary and traditional. We have many galleries and open studios for you to explore. I have two bedrooms each with wireless internet, the larger of the two has a kiva fireplace and a wood burning stove. Both rooms have a flat screen TV. A small library with internet access (where I serve coffee, tea, fresh juice and homemade biscuits and jams) also has a wood burning stove for those chilly winter mornings. Down comforters and pillows are in both rooms. A shared bathroom with new mexican tiles around the shower and sink areas.We do not offer kitchen facilities, there is a refrigerator, microwave and an outdoor barbecue for your use. Restaurants are within a ten to twenty minute drive. Pets allowed (if agreeable with my pets) Laundry facilities are available. Hiking and Biking out the front door. And for those who fish, ski, golf or horse back ride, you can find all of that and much more within a twenty mile range. Santa Fe is 45 minutes south, Ojo Caliente Hot Springs 45 minutes West and Taos one hour north. If you are a writer, an artist or someone who just enjoys the clean mountain air and the beauty that surrounds you, you will find paradise in our home and the magic of Truchas and Northern New Mexico.

Northern New Mexico Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We were attending a memorial service in Truchas and I found Lorey's place which was just up the road. It was a bit cool for an April day when we arrived, and Lorey had a fire warming the rental. Her place is very comfortable and inviting. She had a bottle of wine awaiting us and when we let her know we wanted to use the grill in the evening she got it ready so all we had to do was strike a match. In the morning she had a delicious breakfast of muffins, yogurt, fresh berries and coffee awaiting us. I highly recommend that if your are looking for a place to get away and relax, Lorey's rental is the place!! Thanks Lorey!!

Lovely, as usual!

  • 5 of 5

This has become our choice for a getaway from the routines of our busy lives. This place provides relaxation, charm, quiet and abundant nearby outdoor recreation. What more could one ask for! Lorey is a wonderful host and we have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her and sharing stories. The hardest thing each time is knowing that we eventually have to leave. Thank you again Lorey for sharing your home and a special part of New Mexico!

I landed at Lorey's home on a Monday evening for a work assignment. I was met with such thoughtful accommodations that I felt I was on vacation. Lovely space. Lovely woman. Thanks, Lorey!

Feels Like Home!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Lorey's while we attended a wedding nearby. It was clean, quiet, and full of NM charm. Lorey catered to us from the point we made the reservation through to our departure. A lovely bottle of wine and a warm fire were waiting for us upon arrival and a healthy breakfast with warm homemade muffins was provided each morning. The location was perfect for day trips on the High Road to Taos and even skiing at Sipapu (great little ski area!!). We look forward to visiting again in the summer.

Quintessential New Mexico

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at Lorey's beautiful Getaway, although our first during the winter season. What a delight! To us, this represents why New Mexico is referred to as the "Land of Enchantment". Beauty, culture, nature, unique architecture, light, sky, peace and harmony. All without the feeling of being among the mass of tourists. Wonderful wine, great breakfast, lovely accommodations, and ALWAYS great conversation with the host. A perfect location for outdoor activities, including hiking, photography, cross-country or downhill skiing and snowshoeing. Nothing better than a day of activity in any number of easily accessible locations and return to this B & B for true relaxation! We'll be back!
