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 Taos

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.

A gem in Taos

  • 5 of 5

The place was awesome! Great location near the plaza. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. Everything you need to make a vacation enjoyable the Architect's Space has it. Page kept in touch throughout our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. We loved listening to the church bells near by. Plenty of very comfortable space for all with free parking. We will definitely be back.

Spacious and conveniently located condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment over President’s Day Weekend, 2018 – two couples and one single. We used the apartment as a home base from which we explore Taos (shops, plaza, pueblo), Santa Fe (plaza, museums) and in between (Gorge Bridge, Ojo Caliente resort, Earthships and little towns in between). It was a great location, with parking in the lot across the street, and steps from the plaza.

We had plenty of room for five people and made use of all three bedrooms. The apartment is priced per person – if you have two people, it’s one rate, and goes up per person per night for each additional guest. Totally understandable given the extra linens, but could cause some strife if everyone’s paying the same share, as the rooms are of varying size and quality, with the bunk bed room the tightest and the “front” bedroom the largest and most luxurious.

The apartment was immaculate and beautifully appointed. The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen was well-stocked. Page was easy to communicate with, and provided wonderful directions and recommendations. We had small problems with an overheated bedroom (the one with three steps going down to the bedroom) and the entry to the patio area (we thought pocket doors were swinging doors, and couldn’t figure out how to exit – user error!) and both times received immediate responses to our texts.

The bathrooms, linens and towels and kitchens are all luxurious and we recommend using the pedestal tub to anyone with the time! We do wish the bathroom with that tub had a lock on the door, but otherwise, had no complaints. The apartment feels like a test area for upscale architectural interiors, and we were thrilled to be using it.

Our only small concern was that the apartment is on top of a Mexican restaurant (fantastic food, slow service when crowded). We smelled woodsmoke from the kitchen on immediate arrival, but that dissipated quickly. We could also hear a squeaking door in the restaurant below, and general staff kitchen chatter. The restaurant closed at 9:00 pm, though, and I’m confident the apartment was more quiet than any nearby hotel.

The property was perfect

  • 5 of 5

Before arriving I was a little concerned that our group would feel cramped (6 adults, 1 teenager, a 4 year old and a 1 year old). However, the place was perfect. There was plenty of room for us all. The restaurant downstairs was fabulous and the people were wonderful. They even brought fresh baked chocolate chip cookies to us ( they thought Page was there instead, but left them for us in her absence 😊?). We were hoping for snow, but since that was not to be, we spent a lot of time shopping the plaza which was just a short walk away. I highly recommend this place -it was wonderful.

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

You won't want to leave this lovely cozy apartment. It's creative design and decorating from modern to traditional is comforting and makes you feel at home. This apartment was designed with much love from ceilings to the floors and the walls to the doors/ window frames. We were surprised to see paper towels and TP, spices, and an abundance of towels and bedding. There are plenty of blankets and we found a floor heater...perfect for Floridians who can't handle a little cool weather. Perfectly located, and walking distance to the downtown plaza. We Loved It!

Beautiful property, well appointed, great location!

  • 3 of 5

The property has fine amenities - location, furnishings, appliances, air conditioning, and parking. However, we experienced a major communication failure with the owner. Our confirmation email stated, “I will be in contact with you prior to your arrival with access instructions.” None came and we were unable to enter the rental. Property website instructions did not apply. After 3 hours of unanswered calls, emails, and texts to the owner, we confirmed hotel rooms, thinking we were victims of a scam (we paid in advance as contract required). Finally, the owner, an experienced Taos realtor, called with access instructions. Homeaway clients must be able to rely on dependable communication.

Owner's Response: I put every effort into communicating with my guests- but please understand it's a two way street. It is i or the guest that initiates communication with in a few days of arrival. Fortunately this communication error actually lasted 35 minutes - which can seem like a very long time in such a situation. Guests ended up enjoying the property and had excellent suggestions about how to improve. Please reach out to me a day or two before arrival and I will do the same.
