About Adrienne Anderson

Adrienne divides her time between Taos this home in Taos and her home of 30 years in Denver, Colorado. Friends have dubbed this getaway Rancho Relaxo, and it has proven to be just that.

Adrienne Anderson purchased this house in 2015

Why Adrienne Anderson chose Arroyo Seco

I have been coming to Taos for hiking, skiing and the food since 1982. Arroyo Seco is north of Taos by ten miles and while the rest of the world changes this place has held onto its heritage. Rancho is surrounded by hayfields, horse pastures, historic acequias (irrigation ditches),sage, pinion and a lot of peace.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed everything about our stay in Adrienne's home. It is absolutely lovely—the photos do not do it justice—the home is much larger and more spacious than I expected. The kitchen is beautiful and well-equipped with virtually everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed both porches/patios. In the morning we saw hot air balloons rising in the distance while enjoying coffee on the west-facing patio. The location allowed for day trips to Taos, Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, and Great Sand Dunes National Park. Adrienne took the time to check on us throughout our stay. A great experience...I only wish we could have stayed longer. Would love to return in the future.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! Truly a place to get away from it all! We enjoyed the wonderful kitchen and just spending time at the house, yet it is located in a great spot to explore the area and see everything Northern New Mexico has to offer! Adrienne was a wonderful host checking in on us to make sure we had everything we needed! We hope to visit the Taos area again and stay here!

Clean, Beautiful Home in Arroyo Seco

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this beautiful home! Very clean, away from the bustle of town, great hiking books to decide where to go hiking. We loved hanging out with our family on the patio watching the sunset and playing dominoes. Adrienne was very responsive with any questions we had, and put together a great informational binder on restaurants, people to call in emergencies, and things to do around town. Wonderful experience; we would absolutely stay here again!!!

Absolutely Beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

Home is beautiful, reasonable, and spacious! Pictures on VRBO were nice, but do not do it justice. It was nice that there were condiments and everything you need for cooking. Location is perfect to the town and skiing. I definitely would recommend!
