About Page Patterson

My husband Doug and I met in Taos in 1994. I was a potter and he had just graduated from Architecture School in Cincinnati. We built an Earthship, had babies, I began Taos Clay (a community Clay Studio) and Doug joined Living Designs Group Architects. My Daughter and I rode horses together for many years, now both of our children, Emma and Jon Clay, compete on skis in Big Mountain Freeride and Slopestyle Freeride. We all spend a good part of the winter traveling to ski areas around the country and even to Canada this past season. We raft and climb and trail run in the warmer months, and sometimes even in the colder months too.

Page Patterson purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Page Patterson chose New Mexico

We bought this property because it is one of the most beautiful downtown historic properties in Taos. A two story, territorial hacienda with a fountain in the courtyard where there was once a community well. Rumor says it was at one time a brothel with tunnels running below it during prohibition. Mixed use: there is a thriving restaurant downstairs and an Architecture office upstairs, creating a property that is used so many hours of each day. Hollyhocks dorn the courtyard throughout the summer and tulips and daffodils line the walkways in the spring.

What makes this apartment unique

Besdies the excellent location, this place has sweet furnishings! Italian leather furniture, high end rugs, french press, coffee, half and half and a bottle of wine. This is our guest house so why not spend a little more and furnish how I would like our own house to be furnished? So I did: High thread count, 100% cotton linens, king size organic mattress, Ralph Lauren duvet covers and lovely, insulating blinds through which the light gently passes.

Great location, beautiful home, would stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location, Bellas restaurant right down the stairs, close to the plaza (walking distance to everywhere we needed to go). Beautiful 3 bedroom home, nice kitchen, great layout. Parking is tricky for multiple cars but we managed to make it work. Definitely recommend this location and would love to stay here again!

Excellent property. Close to everything. Great Owners. Well kept and very very clean.

  • 5 of 5

I was saved by Page and Doug after arriving in Taos and finding everything with 3-stars sold-out. I was surprised to find this gem available for a one-night stay on VRBO (the best). The property has easy access and is above a busy restaurant. Private balcony for late night star viewing was a plus. Well-situated washer/dryer units make the unit complete. Be sure to read the guide for TV operations.

Recommended for couples who enjoy space and access to the Taos square which is a block away.

The cleaning fee is steep ($100) for short stays, but with the overall value I was happy to pay the premium.

I look forward to staying at this property again soon.

Great location, stylish lodging!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay! Definitely want to return. Perfect location, we could walk to practically everything. Great restaurant right downstairs. The three bedroom, 2 bath apartment is well equipped, comfortable and high end. One of the nicer vacation rentals I have rented.

Lovely home & so close to plaza & all the awesome restaurants! We enjoyed sitting on the cozy deck & eating chips & salsa from Bella's restaurants located right down stairs! We would definitely come back!

This was a lovely spacious apartment. There were 4 of us, but could easily accommodate 8-9.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was beyond our expectations, as was the restaurant on the ground floor. We were very happy with the location and were in walking distance of the plaza which was beautiful. An added bonus was a Farmer's market in the Plaza the Saturday morning we were there, which gave us a great introduction to the area. This was out first visit to Taos, but hopefully not our last. We were only there about 2 1/2 days and we didn't get to see everything the town has to offer. But without hesitation I can say Taos is a great place and this apartment was a great home away from home. I hope we have an opportunity to stay there again and recommend it without hesitation. It made our short visit very memorable.

Big Barn Dance Weekend Digs

  • 4 of 5

The property was just what we needed. We were attending the Big Barn Dance and we could easily walk to Kit Carson Park. The property was very clean and amenities were great. Our only complaint was that there was no lighting when we returned each night. All but one light on the upper porch were out and the enclosed patio area where the restaurant is was pitch black. It was really unnerving trying to get up the stairs using our phone flashlight apps. I felt that anyone could have been lurking in the patio area ready to attack! As we are from Texas my husband has his CHL. However, that wouldn't have worked well in the pitch dark. If the owners fix this problem then the property would be 100% fantastic!
