About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

High Mesa Cottage is located on a 1.1 acre lot about fifteen minutes from the ski area and ten minutes from Taos Plaza. The house was built in 2004 on a mesa about five hundred feet above the town of Taos, and offers stunning 360 degree views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and Rio Grande Valley. No house in the area has better views of New Mexico's highest peaks and O'Keefe's much-painted Cerro Pedernal. No highway noise can be heard on this quiet lane as it is surrounded by open space, horse properties, and just a few other houses. Not many surrounding lights make ideal conditions for viewing the night sky through the supplied telescope or from the private hot tub located just outside. A high-speed wireless broadband internet connection is present allowing guests to keep in touch with the rest of the world.

Inside, the house has a modern, open floor plan with a large kitchen opening up to dining and living areas with 12 foot viga ceilings. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances, granite countertops, and high-quality cookware and utensils. The living room has an adobe fireplace as well as an entertainment center with satellite TV, stereo, and DVD. Radiant heated floors throughout the house make walking barefoot a pleasure. The house features numerous custom touches such as limestone windowsills, skylights and ceiling fans in each bedroom.

The master suite consists of a large bedroom with king-size bed, five-piece bath, and large walk-in closet, along with a satellite TV/DVD. The other bedrooms have queen beds, large closets, and mountain views.

Once here, we are convinced you will agree that this is a very special location and will want to return. Please take a look and call or email for more information.

Snowy get away

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here with our family for several years. This home is an absolute delight. Clean and well-appointed, it's a perfect home away from home in Taos. We skiied, went to Ojo Caliente, and enjoyed family time. The owners are fantastic.

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several different properties in the Taos area, but this is by far the best. The location is perfect, minutes from Taos and Arroyo Seco, with wonderful views in every direction. The house was clean and comfortable, nicely decorated with a well stocked kitchen. If you enjoy relaxing in a hot tub while taking in the fantastic mountain views, this is the place for you.

3 days was not enough

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with two friends in late September while exploring Taos area and fall colors. We loved that it was so close to town yet so removed and isolated that we only heard coyotes at night. Kitchen was extremely well equipped. Great night sky and view of the mountains, really pleasant garden area for sipping coffee in the morning. Hope to stay again very soon. Thanks Brenda!

Wonderfully quiet and peacful with nonstop views of the changing colors surrounding the mountains and pastures.The home was equiped with anything you might need .Very clean and beautifully decorated.Perfectly located to go off for a day of hiking, or siteseeing ,or eating a great meal out.We found it just perfect .We will definately want to return again and watch the sunset and the stars come out from the hottub while we plan the next days adventure in the mountains ,or just sitting in the wonderful gardens reading one of the many books to choose from.It is truly special home.We are very grateful to the owners for sharing such a lovely home! Our dog is 12 and a very experienced traveler and hiker.He gives it 4 paws up!
