We weren't able to come due to the unexpectedly early arrival of our new grandson. Communications with Jill were prompt and responsive. We hope to return for real!

We had a great time staying at Jill's place. Clean, quiet, and secluded, but close enough to Taos Ski Valley to make it to the ski lift nice and early. We never felt far from the amenities in Taos or Arroyo Seco. Jill did an amazing job of prepping the place and left notes for fun places to go in the area and tips for keeping the (overly) friendly neighborhood dogs out of the house. We would recommend her Taos Mountain Casa to everybody.

This was our second time staying at Jill's artisan casa, it is perfection personified. Valdez is a beautiful landscape and in a fantastic location between Arroyo Secco and TSV. The house itself is full of love and ornate details. The birds in the backyard and fantastic landscape make mornings and sunsets blissful. As a host, Jill could not be more wonderful, she is accessible and a spirit.

Jill made us feel very welcome and at home. The casa is actually more wonderful than it appears in the photos. I loved spending time outside in the beautiful space. We loved our walks in all directions. Would definitely recommend to a couple who is need of quiet and desires to be in beauty

A lovely cosy spot on the mountainside. Clean and welcoming with a nice bottle of wine. Quiet with but a few neighbours, this was a perfect retreat from the city that provided a much needed "mountain fix."

First of all, thanks so much Jill! You're home treated us well. :) This place was exactly what we needed. There was room to spread out, inside and outside. We went for hikes in the neighborhood. Cooked delicious food in the adorable kitchen. Everything we needed was right there. The fire pit was a nice touch. Our dog had a great time and we didn't have to worry about him wandering off too far. There's also a doggy door to an enclosed yard, which was great. Close access to everything and VERY relaxing. Hearing the sound of the river in the valley was so soothing. Thanks again, Jill, for sharing your home! Best host ever.

I am a designer and artist. i have a company that makes great handbags right here in Arroyo Seco: Jijibags.we are committed to quality and style with a conscience.

i love the magnificent landscape of Northern New Mexico and enjoy biking, hiking, snowshoeing, skiing the backcountry, kayaking the rivers, my garden and my dogs.
i love to cook and bake, travel, and good books and movies. art museums when i get to a city.

i made the tile for my house and built it ....with help of course. It is a great place to spend some time with easy access to all that the the mountains and town have to offer. it is quiet and yet not too far from it all.

Taos is an amazing place to live, we are fortunate to have so many museums, restaurants, the Pueblo, and wonderful people here.

i hope you come visit!
