Taos Town - 1/2 mile to Taos Plaza and 18 miles to Taos Ski Valley
"Cottonwood", in the heart of Taos village sits back off the street behind a giant stone privacy wall and is surrounded by blooming lilies and ancient cottonwood trees in a most inviting setting.
As additional interest, this Taos adobe vacation rental was owned by the same Taos family for over 150 years. In 2010 it was purchased and renovated by local "Taoseneo", Mr. Bob Loveless, nationally known for his award winning stonework designs for counters, sinks, tubs, showers, pools, privacy walls and about anything that can be made of stone. Bob's trademark stonework and artistic flair is evident throughout this popular vacation rental with arched doorways, curved abutments, stone and adobe privacy walls and adobe mica walls. Cottonwood a one of a kind designer house with upscale charm and ambiance throughout.
Surrounded by a thick stone wall and hundred year old cottonwoods, Cottonwood offers privacy, shade and seclusion in the very heart of Taos. With "two large master bedrooms" on opposite sides of the house each with their own bathroom two couples enjoy serenity and total privacy. There is additional sleeping for up to 3 more guests on the twin luxury memory foam sofa sleeper in bedroom #2 and 2 additional in the adjoining open den with double "state of the art" American Leather "Comfort Sleeper Sofa". When the den/bedroom is used for sleeping, bathroom for bedroom #2 becomes a "guest bathroom" with a second bathroom door opening from the great room, still enabling private access from the bedroom.
The great room, furnished with upscale sofa and leather chairs, offers ample seating for all. The open, upscale, contemporary kitchen is accented with "Loveless stone countertops", which is a signature in many large luxury homes around the country.
For total relaxation and unwinding, Cottonwood comes complete with a "Prodigy Hot Springs" hot tub nestled in its own private "coyote fenced" area for absolute privacy from the outside world. Coyote fences, native to Santa Fe & Taos, are constructed of Aspen tree limbs and are seen in the majority of southwest architecture publicity.
The front "portal" (Spanish for covered walkway / patio) adds outdoor living space in all kinds of weather and comes equipped with small table, 2 chairs and 2 hammock swinging chairs, great for relaxing and socializing.
During late autumn, winter and spring, Taos Mountain can be seen clearly through the Red Willows and Cottonwood trees.
An adobe architectural work of art, Cottonwood offers a quiet retreat from the rest of the world and is an easy 3 block stroll to "Taos Plaza". Once there, enjoy Kit Carson's historic home, Bent Street, shops, galleries, museums and restaurants. Taos Inn's lobby and front garden patio is known as the "community living room" where Taos locals casually drop in to socialize with whomever might be there. Kit Carson Park, a half block further, is hidden and tucked in the center of town and is lovely for picnics, ball tossing and community festivals.
There are 3 Flat screen Smart TV's (One in the living room and one in each bedroom). There is BlueRay DVD and a wireless scanner/printer/copier.
For outdoor enjoyment there are 2 swing chairs, a zero gravity lounger, and 2 folding chairs on the front patio. There is a small table and 2 chairs on the back patio.

Cottonwood is a tastefully furnished, well appointed home. We so appreciated all of the lovely art in literally every room. It was great having two master bedrooms on opposite sides of the house giving both couples ample space and privacy. Having the caretaker only a phone call away for our few questions was a delight and she was most friendly and helpful. The private setting with a very short walk to town made everything that much more perfect.....

Beautiful House! The house is absolutely beautiful, and has everything you could possibly need while staying in Taos! The decor is perfect and very fitting for the New Mexico style. The grounds, hot tub, and entire house were immaculately clean. The caretaker was incredibly helpful and kind.

My husband, his 82 year old aunt, and I spent four days at Cottonwood House in October. It was a lovely time to be in Northern New Mexico - leaves were changing, weather was cool, and the scenery everywhere we drove was spectacular. The house could not have been more comfortable and well-equipped. It was a delight to come home each day to this attractive casita. Each of us found our favorite reading spots in the great room. Beds were luxurious with plenty of pillows for propping and warm comforters and blankets. The art and collectibles were delightful and added authentic southwest ambiance. We enjoyed poking through the books and magazines and especially liked reading about the history of Taos & discovered new places to revisit on our next trip. Caretaker was quick to answer questions and help us in any way we needed. We lacked for nothing while there & plan to return with more family- plenty of room for 6 adults. Sight seeing tips: St. Francis de Asis (church made famous by Georgia O'Keeffe painting), Hacienda de Martinez, 200 year old original home of early settlers, drive through Orilla Verde (an arm of the Rio Grande gorge.) Don't miss the short drive to Arroyo Seco for ice cream at Taos Cow.

We had a delightful “retreat” in this beautiful home you have created. Every little touch made us smile, from the luxurious bedding to the little clock and happy cat hanging on the walls. Everything we needed was at our finger tips. We will take the memories with us and therefore think of you and Bob and all the others who have made this place so special. We hope all who dwell here feel as renewed as we do. Our spirits have connected. Hopefully the peace we feel will make our little piece of the world better. Many blessings to all,

Grandparents, parents and 2 children had a wonderful time at Cottonwood and Taos in general. There were many things to do for all of our ages. The Taos Twrill for the kids was the best! Grandma and Grandpa had the huge Master Bedroom #1 and we and the children had Master bedroom #2 which was also large & roomy + the adjoining den. It work out great and we all met in the middle in the great room, the front "portal" or the hot tub for family time. The rope swings on the front portal were a hit with everyone. This is a great "VR". We will be back.

5 55 year old girlfriends from high school had a 38th year reunion in Taos, New Mexico. We stayed at Cottonwood and had a most wonderful time. The great room was the best, allowing us to gather for meal prep, TV, dining, gabbing without missing anything. We even all fit in the hot tub for late evening reminiscing and remembering amazing things as they came up. The house was clean, beautifully furnished and well equipped. We loved the portal. It was new and novel and we used it a lot. The swing chairs were a real hit and the hundreds of lilies were amazing.

Two couples shared this lovely home for a week and we never felt crowded or closed in. The kitchen was well equipped and furnishings were tasteful and comfy. The "well off the road setting" allowed us a great sense of privacy yet only a short distance to all the activities nearby. The front "portal" as it is called in New Mexico was an added delight. We certainly hope to be back. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.
