The adobe walls of Tierra Madre are cool in the summer and warm in winter. This spacious home was designed with the comfort of guests in mind. An adobe house feels like no other. Heavy beams (vigas) span the ceilings in the traditional manner while thick plaster coats the walls. Warmth is provided by radiant floor heat. Yes, you can even bring your own notebook computer and enjoy the free high speed wi-fi.
Tierra Madre is north of town, just 15 minutes from the ski valley and five minutes from town. You will feel like you have come home as you snuggle under down comforters and build a fire in the Kiva fireplace. Everything is provided from an espresso coffeemaker to comfortable chairs for those afternoons when all you want to do is read a book.

The outside hot tub is the perfect place to watch shooting stars dart across the dark skies...

We (2 couples) rented this house for one week over Labor Day. It exceeded our expectations. It is in a very quiet area yet only 5-10 minutes from great restaurants and stores. The house is very well maintained and looks just like the pictures. We loved hanging out in the living room watching movies or reading. Every morning we would...

Wonderful house --everything you could ask for. Great location and fantastic views. Just north of town with convenient access to mountains, the gorge and town. Owner is local and can provide all sorts of info about the area and is responsive if you need anything.

Management response:

It is always nice when a guest takes the time to express their appreciation for the house and decor. We try very hard to make the house a relaxing getaway.

About the neighborhood
This is a prime location to stay at located in between Taos and Taos Ski valley. Fantastic views out the front and the back with unobstructed mountain views out the front picture windows and sunset views over the Mesa out the back picture window. Close to Taos for groceries, restaurants, and shopping, yet also close to Ski valley for skiing and forest hiking. Close but so nice with the quiet relaxing location It has BIA (federal land) on 2 sides so there are vast views of sunsets out the back windows or from the patio. Great views of the sunrise and the mountains out the front windows.
