Overview

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.

Wonderful Property!!

  • 5 of 5

House was a perfect place for my family of 5 (myself, wife & kids and my mother). Rooms were nice and large, and the huge window overlooking the mountains was beautiful. Soaking in the hot tub under the stars was magical. We enjoyed a nice relaxing fire in the fireplace as well. Perfect place to stay for our ski vacation! We plan to stay here again next year.

Gorgeous Views and comforts galore

  • 5 of 5

Our 6 adults really loved this house. Well-decorated, extremely well-equipped kitchen, and oh that hot tub. Easy drive to the slopes and to town. We'll be back. Hopefully this summer.

Beautiful Ski Vacation Home Base

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at High Mesa Cottage. The house was exactly as advertised. Well equipped kitchen, nicely decorated, private, very comfortable. A great home base for a family ski trip for less than three hotel rooms in town. We've rented several houses in Taos over the years and we all agreed this was the best!

Wonderful Taos House

  • 5 of 5

High Mesa Cottage is a perfect place to stay: it's nicely located in between downtown Taos and the ski area; the kitchen has all that one needs for cooking; the furnishings are comfortable and the ambience very pleasant; the views from the house are beautiful; the entire house was very clean and well-maintained; and last, but not least, the owners are easy to communicate with and very helpful. The next time we come to Taos, we'd like to stay here again!

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.
