About Donna Brunton

29 year Taos resident

Donna Brunton purchased this house in 1997

Why Donna Brunton chose New Mexico

Convenient location with a wonderful feeling of being home. My house belong to the Merrill's who were artists, gallery owners and school teachers in Taos in the 40's. I love there story!

What makes this house unique

I totally renovated my house and in doing so put in a courtyard that not many houses feature. I kept the original wood floors and incorporated some of the pieces that the original owners used. It also has such privacy with the walled front yard and coyote fencing. I love my neighborhood.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This is as good as it gets on location. It is a short walk to several good restaurants and the Plaza is about a quarter mile. Just a good place to start from. The house is comfortable. Everything we needed to move in and get started was in place.

An interesting side story. One couple that stayed with us did not like the memory foam mattress at all and thought about sleeping on the couch. Another couple that visited us tried to find a name on the memory foam mattress as they claimed it was the best sleep they had in a long time. Just goes to show you cannot please everyone.

All who visited liked the place and the location.

Charming house with a great location to downtown Taos!

  • 4 of 5

Very cute house with plenty of room to spread out. Loved the location to the plaza. The place was clean, good beds, but pillows could be improved. The kitchen was well stocked, nice t.v., furnished nicely and great location. If the owner has the option, it would be great to replace the one twin bed with a double. Otherwise it was a perfect place for three individuals or two couples. Really enjoyed our time there.

Perfectly appointed and perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here January 2016. The home had lots of space, perfectly appointed kitchen, walking distance to plaza, doggie door, 2 courtyards and 30 minutes to TSV. The home was comfortable and cozy. We will return.

This was a great place to stay close to everything! Although it could have been cleaned better, there were some dirty rags in one of the bathrooms and alot of dog hair on the beds(not good for someone allergic)! If you need space this place has it!

4 great days in Taos!

  • 5 of 5

A colorful, well-appointed home right in the heart of Taos. If anything, the photos do not do the property justice. The indoor spaces are large, and there are multiple outdoor spaces, including a center patio, which is quite typical of New Mexico dwellings. A Taos icon, Michael's Kitchen is virtually across the street, and despite being 100 yards from the main road, the property feels almost isolated, despite being in a fairly congested area. The property was clean, available as promised, and we also had the good fortune of meeting the owner, who was staying next door, and she gave us the necessary information to access the property. I would stay there again.
