After a fun-filled day of sightseeing, grill dinner on the patio and enjoy an al fresco meal as the sun sets. LIVING AREAS Unwind in the spacious living room with ample seating on two couches. Watch a movie on the 40” flat screen TV or gather around the coffee table for a game night. Enjoy the warm ambiance of the wood burning stove with a good book. The living room futon opens to reveal a twin-size bed. KITCHEN & DINING Cook your favorite foods in the modern kitchen, fully stocked with all the gadgets you might need. With a double sink and ample counter space, preparing meals in this spacious kitchen will be a breeze. When it’s time to eat, convene at the dinner table with seating for six. BEDROOMS & BATHS Find quiet privacy in the master bedroom with a queen bed, dresser, walk-in closet, flat screen TV, and backyard access. Kick back in the second bedroom with two twin beds, a large closet, and gorgeous mountain views. The bathroom offers a shower/tub combination. OUTDOOR AREAS In summer months, enjoy meals at the patio table for two in the fenced front yard or have coffee at the second table for two just off the master bedroom with stunning mountain views. EXTRA AMENITIES & DETAILS Extra perks include complimentary Wi-Fi, a washer/dryer, and driveway parking for up to four vehicles. Although this home is not equipped with air conditioning, it is rarely needed with the mild summer weather in Taos (elevation 7,000’). Heating is by way of the baseboard heaters and a wood-burning stove. Feel free to bring your furry family member. This rental is dog and cat friendly. THE LOCATION Begin your day at Gutiz, a long-standing local favorite for delicious internationally influenced cuisine served in a daytime eatery adorned with contemporary art. Go for a scenic hike on the Devisadero Loop Trail 108. In the warmer months, enjoy an array of gorgeous indigenous flowers. Looking southeast, take in beautiful views of the town of Taos.
