    Tree Top Retreat - Contemporary Secluded Mountain Home - Designed & hand built by Owner/ Architect / Engineer with Spectacular wrap around window Views

    This "Guest House" consists of two stories with a first floor bedroom & adjoining bathroom, foyer and laundry room. The second floor hosts the fully-equipped kitchen / living area + bedroom & adjoining bathroom and was built by the owner / designer / architect / engineer as the family's home while he "hand built" their residence (now the secluded main house) which is well separated and offering total privacy on the 13 acre secluded retreat. For guests who wish, owners are available to provide sightseeing tips and information on local activities.

    The retreat, surrounded by pinions and cactus at an altitude of 8000 ft. on a 13 acre property abutting Kit Carson National Forest, offers thousands of acres of hiking and exploring.

    The floor to ceiling windows in the living room/kitchen of this unique and inviting guesthouse provide a spectacular view over a sea of trees to the town of Taos, the mesa and the mountains beyond.

    The view includes mountains over 85 miles away. From the living room, top floor bedroom and the balcony (accessed by two sliding glass doors) guests have two different breathtaking mountain view. sunsets and sunrises. Both are glorious.

    In addition to window wall panoramic views, the grande stone "wood burning" fireplace competes for close second place. The upstairs master has a queen bed. The first floor bedroom has a queen bed and a sofa sleeper (most comfortably children) for a maximum total of 6 guests.

    As with the house itself, the furniture has been designed, hand crafted by the owner. All of the floors are Saltillo tile and, when required, provide luscious radiant heat. Passive solar provides most of the heat in the winter and window overhangs protect the house from excessive heat during summer months. Water is solar heated on the roof adding to this eco friendly home.

    Guests find this home to be a welcoming, relaxing and comfortable retreat after a day of skiing, boarding, hiking, shopping, gallery hopping, sight seeing, or enjoying any other activity that this remarkable area has to offer.

    We invite you to come and enjoy the New Mexico sun in this rare and comfortable mountain retreat.

    As this home is on a 3 mile well maintained hard packed gravel road and we are subject to a variety of weather conditions, we require that you have a four-wheel drive vehicle during winter months. Summer months require no special recommendations.

    A great week was had here. The house is in a secluded area that is peaceful, relaxing and has some great views of Taos valleys. You can walk through Kit Carson National Forest, to the Kiowa Village and DH Lawrence Ranch. Staircase is steep but has the same angles and widths that millions of townhouses built in Northern Virginia/Maryland have so no problem here. Would highly recommend the house for a peaceful getaway and a jumping off point for sightseeing viewing the area. - L. Shafer

    A very out of the way quiet jewel. Approximately 25 minutes from Taos. The views are spectacular from every window.Secluded from the world when you need it. But not to far from town or fishing the Rio Grande river - D. Just

    Tree Top Retreat - A real treat! Driving distance to historical Taos. Lovely home, very private. Enjoyed the outdoor spa surrounded by trees, felt as if we were the only people on earth. Great place to unwind. From the living room, we could see Taos at a distance. The host and hostess were most attentive. Would definitely stay there again! - T. Pansieri

    Treated to a "Tree Top Retreat". This spot tops all of our 20 years of ski vacations in Taos. Peaceful, views to die for, great hot tub, stars and the sound of coyotes in the woods. Never even headed into town (not a slight, just wanted to get back to the house to enjoy the quiet. Well worth the trip. - C. Fenska

    Beautiful remote location. The living area and kitchen face a full windowed wall with a view of the mountains. Prettiest star filled sky I've seen. - J. Grimes

    A serene, relaxing spot. My family and I have vacationed in Taos a few times and this is the place we'd stay again. The views cannot be beat, you can see the Sangre de Christo range all around and the twinkling lights of Taos at night. The house is expertly sighted so the sun does not come in through the big front window and heat up the place in summer. Very quiet and secluded, really a lovely place. All "A's". Overall experience "A", Caretaker services "A", Cleanliness "A", Location "A", Property Condition "A" Would recommend to others. - K. Knupp

    Retreat at the top of Taos. We loved the Tree Top Retreat. The house is perched at the highest point on the mesa so the views are spectacular. An entrance to a trail across the mesa in the Carson Forest is only about 500 yards from the property. John and Barbara were delightful hosts. Totally non-intrusive but available in a heart-beat if information or anything else was needed. The architectural details in their house and the Tree Top are stunning. John can provide a fascinating account of the structures and the building of both places. If you want a real retreat, and a real treat, this is the place! - M. Berg

    Great experience. Wonderful contemporary architecture that makes one feel "on top of te world". Fabulous views along with lush and cool summer mountain air. Owners were lovely without intrusion. We felt secluded with a sense of "help around the corner" should we have needed it. We highly recommend this lovely Taos getaway. - The D. N. Langs

    When we first started looking for a vacation, all we wanted was to just "getaway". We decided on the Taos area and wanted to be close enough to things to do, but not near anyone. This house/location was perfect! The house was so nice, we had plenty of space for everyone. The owner's were very nice and hospitable. The cool breeze at night, sleeping with the patio doors open and nothing but night air to listen too. We traveled around the area, shopped, rafted and did the zipline at Angel Fire. I had never been to the area and will say, I will come back! Was very pleased and highly recommend! - Thank you, N. Mitchel
