About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom with mountain views

A fully remodeled 1100 square foot adobe home, with one large bedroom and a fully equipped kitchen, living room, bathroom with a walk in shower. Situated on the High Road to Taos in historic Truchas New Mexico. The large windows in the bedroom fully frame the view of the Truchas Peaks, which at 13,100 feet dominate the surrounding countryside. There is also an additional 400 foot covered portal for a relaxation during your breakfast dining or happy hour.

The adobe was fully remodeled 10 years ago with a new kitchen and bathroom - many of the old elements such as the vigas and adobe walls were retained. The casita is equipped with traditional details including hand carved furniture, plastered walls and wooden floors.

Solar panels have also been installed within the past 3 years to reduce our carbon footprint.

About Ben Smiley or Annette Vigil

The house was originally built in the late 1800's by my wife's family. It originally started as a one room adobe, then over the years rooms were added on. When we purchased it 10 years ago it was a three bedroom one bathroom home with last family having 6 kids raised.

We remodeled it into a one bedroom guest house - it is a totally detached home (roughly 150 yards from our house) on an acequia (dating to the 1750's). Attached are pastures where the family has bailed alfalfa for many years.

What makes this house unique

An ideal location for a romantic getaway for two with quiet mountain solitude.

If you are looking for the perfect place to disconnect, kick back and re - create, this is the place. A beautiful restoration of an adobe home with everything you could ask for in amenities. Just leave the world behind for a few days, go up to this Swiss like community and enjoy. Don't forget to sit on the wonderful patio and look at the stars like you never see them at home.
