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.

We really enjoyed the house--it was so well designed and beautiful! The time we spent there was just wonderful. The weather was perfect and the people were so friendly.

The food was wonderful and the weather was just perfect! Hope to visit there again sometime!

Right in the middle of town !

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful vacation rental provides lots of gathering room, yet provides privacy for several people. The decorating was delightful, the whole facility was very well maintained. The place had lots of amenities; the owner anticipated anything that anyone might ever need. She did check with us to make sure that she hadn't forgotten something. The restaurant below the rental was my favorite restaurant in town, and they offered to bring our food up so that we could eat on the balcony.

This rental provided us a get-away place for a girl's weekend away. It was close to shopping, restaurants, the area felt safe at night, parking was provided. We loved Taos and loved staying in this vacation rental.

Nice apartment right across the street from the Plaza

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice upstairs apartment right across the street from the Taos Plaza. We had fun walking to all the things to do in Taos and we would definately stay here again!

Great eye for design and convenient location in the heart of Taos.

  • 5 of 5

We loved unique design features of this heart-of-Taos apartment. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare a few meals and make great coffee. The soaking tub in one of the bathrooms was just what we needed after a long day on the slopes. Our three kids enjoyed the bedrooms and the master was perfect for us. The location is ideal and one would never know you share the building with a restaurant. We were very comfortable and plan to come back again and recommend to our friends.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this is a magical place to stay! We are a family of 4, stayed comfortably but could have easily had 2 more people. The apartment is modern but not sterile, with top-notch appliances and neat New Mexico touches. The location is the BEST, just a few steps from the plaza. Our kids got a big kick out of staying on"top of a restaurant" and we had some great meals at Bella's. Plus if you have a few too many margaritas you can just crawl up the stairs :)

If you are going to this area to ski, you should stay here. We went to a different ski area every day (taos valley, anglefire, red river) and they are all close, but then we had the benefit of going back to taos (where the restaurants and night activities are waaaaay better) every evening. We are already planning our return trip!

Fantastic location, spacious, with unusual and eclectic accents.

  • 5 of 5

Step inside and you won't be remotely surprised to find that this is an architect's project. Its clever use of space, unusual layout and roominess are all testament to the skill of the designers.

Page was consistently easy to work with, and we couldn't believe how close to the Plaza the property was. (Even on a map, you don't necessarily get that it's literally a 30-second walk.) The space was perfectly clean, the kitchen spacious and well-stocked with the essentials, and the beds comfortable. Hint - the down-three-stairs bedroom was much warmer than the other two!

No noise at all from the restaurant downstairs, which served great food, and we thoroughly enjoyed out stay. Highly recommended!
