The space

Our casita is located in the neighborhood of Taos known as Canon, a charming agrarian community that is in close proximity to downtown Taos. You can spend the day skiing, going to museums, the plaza, the Taos Pueblo, The Rio Grande gorge, white water rafting, gallery hopping and fine dining; then retreat to your hideaway for replenishment.. If tomorrow you desire a more mellow day, walk out the door into the Carson National Forest, set up your easel. or enjoy a few hours in our organic garden.
The casita, situated on two beautiful acres, is a one bedroom (queen size Tempurpedic mattress)/ one bath with a fully provisioned kitchen and lovely living room. It is tastefully appointed with many pieces of art by local artists. The floors in the bedroom are Saltillo tile and the living area has warm wood floors.
Although we list our casita as sleeping 2 people, we probably could accommodate a young child.

It was a real pleasure to stay at Ed and Melissa's casita. The ground surrounding their home and the casita are a real oasis, and Melissa's vegetable gardens are a sight to behold; she's an artist!

I totally enjoyed my stay in Ed & Melissa’s casita! As my first time AirBnB stay, I didn’t know what to expect. However, I was personally greeted by the hostess and led into a light-filled, impeccable space. Surrounded by trees and flowers, the casita is private, quiet, beautiful…

Small cozy house on a secluded farm. Mountain views and access to trails. Close enough to walk to town if you wanted to, but probably easier to use closer public parking. We definitely recommend staying here if you are spending time in Taos.

This is a wonderful space. Beautiful casita, with tasteful artistic touches. Melissa met us on arrival and provided cookies and local honey, then went so far as to provide homemade tamales when I mentioned we were vegetarian and were looking to get a low-key meal. Really enjoy…

I loved staying at the casita. Ed and Melissa are so sweet and welcoming. The house is beautiful and very comfortable, a short drive from downtown Taos and yet very quiet and peaceful.
