Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Taos - Adobe de Artista 3 Bedroom

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6

Stay at Adobe de Artista and treat yourself to a true Taos, New Mexico lodging experience – one of adventure, whimsy and relaxation.

Whether seeking pristine mountain / mesa views, unique architecture, artistic flair, the “must see” Taos Gorge Bridge, the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument or proximity to the quaint village of Taos, New Mexico or Taos Ski Valley, this home has it all. In addition, the best kept secret of all is the 3 mile drive down into the Rio Grande Gorge with the John Dunn Bridge and hot springs. One can spend the day having a leisurely picnic in nature, soaking in the river, fishing along the edge, hiking up the gorge or kayaking (if one brings one's own kayak).

Boasting 3 Master bedrooms, each of the home’s bedrooms provide total privacy from the rest of the living areas with their own shower bathrooms that can be closed off from entry or pass-through by others in the home. Two have direct access to the outdoors, where walking trails can be discovered nearby on the mesa. When rented to 6 guests the Den / Bedroom acts as a master bedroom with enclosed bathroom. When rented to 8, this bathroom offers a second entry door for 2 banco (Spanish for bed or bench) sleeping children.

A custom home designed and built by Taos’ famous painter, Ed Sandoval, this distinctive residence is built with manmade Old World style adobe bricks. Many interior walls glitter with straw and mica made from pure unadulterated New Mexico earth. Mica is a naturally-occurring element in surrounding land that gives Taos Pueblo pottery its characteristic glistening appearance.

Unexpected swirls of paint in bedrooms and bathrooms add a whimsical ambiance and a river stone shower/tub surrounded by plants make the master bathroom feel like a garden. This home is not just livable art but it is warm, inviting and nurturing to the soul.

Staying in for the day? Depending on the weather, put your feet up and read a book on the banco in the “conversation pit” next to a traditional wood-burning kiva fireplace; enjoy a glass of wine on the portal swing or ramada hammock while listening to birds and soft chimes blowing in the breeze; or prepare a favorite meal on the grill and dine beneath an umbrella while taking in the magic of Taos Mountain. For good weather (which is most of the time) you may prefer heading out for a mountain or river excursion, or some local culture? The river is only 4 short miles away. Not sure how you want to spend the day? You’ll find the home contains all the material you need to determine the best places to go for entertainment and dining to suit your every whim.

On return from your outing, no matter what the season, soothe tired muscles in the hot tub beneath a moonlit sky so clear you can see the Milky Way. Finally, sleep like a baby on beds appointed with foam or pillow-top mattresses within thick adobe sound muffling walls.

Whether this is your first or 100th visit to Northern New Mexico, Adobe de Artista promises a stay like no other in traditional Taos artful adobe living. Come and live like the true “locals” starting back in the 1920’s to current days.

Reviewer Comments:

The property was about 5 miles outside of town, the views were amazing. Floors were really dirty. The master bedroom had a spa bath, but we had difficulties setting the water temp in the shower, if fact the first day couldn't get the temperature down, and was unable to shower. Lack of a grab bar is a safety issue.

Reviewer Comments:

Adobe de Artista is a beautifully designed and decorated home. The art displayed there is engaging, and the beds are comfortable. The house is well-equipped with cooking and cleaning supplies as well as games and books. We really enjoyed our stay. A couple of considerations: Those familiar with Taos may know that many homes are not air-conditioned, but for those who are unaware, this home is not air-conditioned and does not have ceiling fans. It wasn't too much of a problem, but a few of the nights were very warm, even with all doors and windows open. Guests might want to consider bringing a fan. As another reviewer has noted, the road to the house is not paved and deeply rutted.

Reviewer Comments:

The house and the location were exactly what I was looking for; in the middle of the mesa with plenty of space all around; convenient to town. The house itself is wonderful filled with pieces of art. More importantly, the view through the dining room windows across the mesa and to the mountains was spectacular. The dirt road getting in is a bit rough and could be tough for someone with a car prone to bottom out. However: The house could use a good cleaning, sweeping and dusting. Lots of dust in the desert but, that makes it all the more important. Also, we could not contact the caretaker to get in on the first day as we were instructed. I eventually contacted the office instead and that worked out. Not the way you want to start your vacation. That said, we would return but, next time, I would ask Premier to make sure the house is well cleaned before we arrive and would contact the office after no reply from the caretaker in the first hour.

Only (2) issues we had. 1. I had my service dog with me which is always on a lease, and every morning the local dogs were in our back yard. 2. I you done have a 4 wheel drive or a vehicle the sits off the ground, you will bottom our coming in. But, it was still a wonderful home and has been decorated very tastefully.

We three artists get together every year to paint. This year, staying at Adobe de Artista, we found that we could paint outside in any direction! Great place, interesting architecture, spacious and tastefully decorated. We had a wonderful stay!
