Overview

About the property

Live Large In This Stunning 7000 Sq Ft Adobe, 7 Fireplaces, Vigas & Beams

According to legend, the Palacio was originally a stop on the Military Line of the Pony Express, then re-built as an Art Gallery. It is now Converted to a Getaway For Groups that want LOTS of elbow room in a sprawling 7000 square feet. The South Gallery is 34 feet long, the Main gallery even larger. There is the Palacio (main house), the Casita (guest house), Seven (7) fireplaces, and five(5) courtyards.

Send the kids to the North Gallery / Bunk Room and they will be in a world of their own, all the way across the Main Gallery. The Master Bedroom has its own fireplace and lounge, which is larger than most living rooms at 20 x 20.

The Dining Room has its own fireplace for cozy meals, or just to gather. The Pantry can handle meal preparation for large groups, and serves out to the Dining room. The eat-in Kitchen has room to serve an informal meal and its own fireplace.

The Guest House has its own bathroom, kitchenette, fireplace, living, study and bedroom. It is separately entered across the inner courtyard from the main house.

There is no other house like it in Taos. The Palacio is conveniently located near Arroyo Seco on the paved and plowed Ski Valley Road. Beds, futons and couches sleep 20 or more. With the optional Guest House, a total of 5 bedrooms and 4 baths will accommodate a large party; the guest house alone is sufficient for a small family or couple.

ABOUT PETS-- We are making the Palacio open to pets, but pet owners must be responsible. Pets are allowed in designated areas and are NOT ALLOWED on furniture, rugs or carpets. The pet fee is $300, but $250 will be refunded if the housekeeper confirms there are no pet damage or pet hairs left behind.

NOTE: The Palacio is mostly located on one ground floor, but includes numerous "changes of level" (also known as "steps") when passing from room to room. Please be alert and aware, and step up or down when passing a change of level. See, for example, the photo of the Foyer, which looks out over the Main Gallery below.

About Lincoln B Quintana

Only a miracle (combined with a lot of elbow grease) made it possible for us to own the Palacio. As shown in this picture, we have re-plumbed and massively renovated the property. I'm good with a pick and shovel and my wife has good taste and knows southwest art and design. We are committed to making the Palacio a place where guests can find their own miracles.

Lincoln B Quintana purchased this house in 2015

Why Lincoln B Quintana chose El Prado

The Palacio was originally built by an artist who was also a contractor and a pilot. It was his gallery. It adjoins the Taos Indian Reservation lands and stands in the lee of El Salto and the "Magic Mountain". Now we are remaking it into a place where groups can spend a few days, a week or a month taking in the magic of Taos. The main house has beds and bedrooms for 13 and sleeping room for up to 20. The separate guest house has its own bathroom, kitchenette, bedroom and study with sleeping space for another 6 people. The guest house is available at a discount to guests in the main house, or at a reduced first-season rate to smaller parties.

What makes this house unique

Beams, latillas, woodwork, adobe and plaster all set the stage for the quintessential Taos experience, but the huge rooms give the Palacio a magnificence that is not found elsewhere. The building makes me feel expansive and lets my mind roam. Bring your art or music and be creative here. Or sit back and enjoy life in a palatial space.

Great people. Great place to celebrate.

  • 4 of 5

This place definitely has history and character. You don't stay here if you are a travel snob expecting everything to be top of the line design. There are original tiles, wood work, floors etc. The kitchen is small but has everything you need. The pictures showed three large beds but I think one must be in the casita. There were seven adults and we had a great time using the hot tub, fire pit, ping pong, and sitting around talking.

Lincoln, the owner, is very quick to respond and provide the return of pet deposit and damage fees. He is great to work with!!!

Palace of Miracles

  • 5 of 5

This place is incredible! There were 16 of us staying and beds for all. There is room to move about and not feel crowded. We all enjoyed the ping pong table, hot tub and the many fire places! The kitchen is well equipped. The home was truly comfortable and inviting. Thanks Lincoln for sharing your lovely property.

Our family had the most wonderful experience this past week celebrating my oldest son's wedding!

  • 5 of 5

Taos is a beautiful New Mexican Pueblo and this property showcases all of the beauty and culture that surrounds this area! This adobe home has a beautiful courtyard, traditional of Spanish and Mexican homes; a huge welcoming kitchen, plenty of space to spend time with loved ones and play a mean game of ping pong and other assorted games! When day is done there is a hot tub to relax in AND an amazing sunken shower to wash your cares away and take you to another place in time! We just loved having this as our "home base" for the wedding - could not have been more perfect... Linc was so easy to work with and accommodating; making sure our stay was most memorable! 🌞?

A Palace of Miracles!

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion of 14 spent an amazing week at the Palace of Miracles. The sprawling adobe house is intriguing, and so much fun to explore. We spent our first few hours exploring the house and property. There was plenty of room to spread out, with many sitting and dining areas. The ping pong table was a hit with all ages, as well as the library stocked with books, games, DVD's, and old VHS movies. We enjoyed fixing large family meals in the well stocked kitchen, and cooking hotdogs and s'mores over the fire pit in the shadow of the mountain. Renting the additional guest house was a bonus, and well worth the extra cost. It gave us an additional bedroom with 3 beds, living room, dining/kitchen area, and restroom. The view from the tower in the guest house incredible. Linc was very attentive to our needs and made us feel welcome. The house is conveniently located with easy access to Taos, the Taos Pueblo, the Rio Grand Gorge Bridge, and to the mountains. The house and surrounding area provide much to explore. We are looking forward to our next adventure at the Palace of Miracles!

amazingly large house with lots of space to spread out but still seem connected

  • 5 of 5

All 19 of us had a great time at the palace of miracles. plenty of floor space, bedrooms and bathrooms. large kitchen with lots of pantry space for food. We put the two tables together and had family dinners together. the ping pong table was a hit with everyone along with the hot tub. location was great. 5/6 miles to town for food and shopping. The mountair view and crisp air was a much needed change from oklahoma. Close to a lot of other towns besides taos. thanks for sharing your beautiful house with us, lincoln was great to work with.
