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.

Relaxing Magical Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This house is magical. The beautiful garden and hammock are perfect for relaxing. The hot tub under the stars after a day of hiking was amazing. I will be coming back to this beautiful home for sure! There was such a relaxing vibe to this house and great local Taos finds close by.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually write reviews but this place was stunning. We've stayed in Taos before but this place just made it feel like home. It lacked nothing. You are greeted with all sorts of fragrant smells from the beautiful garden (pictures don't do it justice). The patio is inviting and perfect for relaxation with wonderful views all around. The home was clean and spacey. The owner responded to emails in a timely manner and was accommodating when we had to request to take our dog at the last minute. The home's location was private yet close to town and Ski valley. We are already talking about going back! Definitely worth it despite our 12 hour drive from Texas. Thank you for making our vacation even more special!

Stately adobe nestled among majestic mountains

  • 5 of 5

High Mesa cottage is a wonderful example of adobe construction. It is elegantly constructed, fully equipped, beautifully maintained and just rural enough to provide the true western desert experience. The house is ideally situated for privacy, but still affords access to recreation, art, food, skiing and rafting.

We have stayed here more times than I can remember and always enjoy it. We especially appreciated how beautiful the garden is looking.

High Mesa Cottage is wonderful. The peacefulness of the setting, the lovely gardens and well appointed house lived up to our expectations and beyond! Our hosts provided us with a lovely respite after 3 long days of travel. Joan Knutson and Geri Burns
