About Eugene/Andrea Taylor
Eugene Taylor is a retired Postal Worker and his daughter Andrea Taylor, a retired Middle School teacher. Although Pennsylvania is our home, our second home is New Mexico. We both realize why it's called the Land of Enchantment and come back to The Mission at Round Mountain as often as possible. Growing up on the East Coast, we have traveled throughout the West but when we come to New Mexico, we feel as though we can relax, rejuvenate, get back to nature and just enjoy life.
Eugene/Andrea Taylor purchased this House in 2006
Why Eugene/Andrea Taylor chose Elizabethville
A lifelong dream of Eugene's son, and Andrea's brother, was to have a place to escape the hustle and bustle of the East Coast and commune with Nature. Having traveled through New Mexico several times, he found the Tularosa Area to suit all his needs. Beautiful deserts, mountains, history and quiet, plus a climate that he just couldn't even describe. Sunshine 320 days a year, now that's what everyone would like to experience. So he bought a piece of land between Tularosa and Mescalero and began designing the home after a Spanish Mission. After his death, Eugene and Andrea decided to hold onto the property and continue to visit it, as often as possible. We just love New Mexico and are happy that we can now share it with others. We know that our place will bring solace to our guests after a long day of Hunting, Skiing, Hiking, Biking or just enjoying the many historical sites and Resort areas in the vicinity. This area of New Mexico has everything from outdoor activities, which are previously mentioned to Casinos, Spa Facilities and Weekly events, which will please anyone who visits it. This area also has the largest Elk Herd in New Mexico, so it's a hunters and outdoor paradise!!!

This property is exceptional! Great place to rejuvenate the body and soul.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! It was a pleasure having you stay with us. We hope to see you again!
We came from Canada to escape the snow and choose this area because we had lived here before and love the sun and the desert and the moderate temperatures of the winter. We wanted a place in the country with privacy and views. The Mission is great. The house itself is amazing and the location peaceful. We enjoyed the sun! We are back to canadian dark and about 2 feet of snow after a month long stay. What really made this place superb is the caretakers and owners. They were so hospitable, welcoming and helpful.
Beautiful house and property. So far the nicest vacation rental we have ever stayed in.
This home was a bit further out of Ruidoso but we’ll worth it. The caretakers were lovely and warm. The house was well equipped including firewood, coffee, drinking water. The pictures do it no justice and it even exceeded the expectations of my fancy wife and 2 daughters! My favorite part was taking a hike up the little hill just behind the house. We can’t wait to go back,
Thank you so much for your wonderful Review!! We appreciated it and hope to see you and your family again! We love it when people enjoy the beauty of our home and even hike around it!! It was our pleasure to have you stay with us!
We stayed at The Mission for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time!
The kitchen was fully equipped fo our meals and they even had the saucers for our day trip to White Sands Monument! Everything you could possibly need was provided! Thanks Andrea!!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Margie! I'm glad you enjoyed yourself at The Mission at Round Mountain. We love having great renters, like you, that enjoy themselves while in New Mexico and appreciate our home. We hope you return some day!
A special home with all kinds of character!!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Mission. The home is well cared for and so interesting with all the furnishings and wall art and decor. We felt very safe and nestled into the mountains and beautiful scenery. Also, an easy location for sight seeing in Ruidoso, Cloudcroft and Alamogordo. We will be back!!
Amber and guest,

Again, thank you for your kind words.
The Mission is a true home away from home.
We loved the Mission. It's is a very unique house in the idea location for exploring everything southern New Mexico has to offer. We enjoyed quiet evenings having drinks on the deck and enjoying the beautiful mountain views and White Sands in the distance. It's obvious the owners take a great deal of pride in the Mission as do Robert and Fran the caretakers. Its was like greeting old friends the first time we met. We definitely hope to return some day.
It was wonderful having you at The Mission at Round Mountain! Having wonderful people like the both of you at our home, is what sharing a home is all about. The way you cared for the home and enjoyed it during your stay brings us a lot of happiness. We are happy that you enjoyed what the Mission is truly about: beautiful views, white sands and fantastic sunsets. We and our caretakers, Robert and Fran hope to see you again, very soon.
