Property Description
MONTANA LUZ HACIENDA

“Mountain Light"
A signature Southwest residence, located in a ranching community eight miles from the Town of Taos and approximately eleven miles from Taos Ski Valley. The hacienda is within walking distance to Arroyo Seco on a rural road which passes an old Penitente Morada, cemetery and the back of Julia Roberts’ 50-acre ranch.

This cozy historic country home was built in the early ‘60s by sisters Sandra and Laurel Seth, Southwest adobe builders who developed a unique building architecture style and design. They are authors of a newly released book called “ADOBE!” - also known locally for their use of natural resources, hand-made adobes, brick, flagstone and timbered local wood.

The original 950 square foot structure was built on part of the Antonio Martinez Land Grant. Over the years, different owners have added their touches and more rooms to create what is currently a 3,000 square foot living space. Recently remodeled, the structure features a 400 square foot inner flag stone court yard, portals (covered patio's) for extended outdoor living with access from the kitchen, living room and northeast bedroom and an additional 2,000 square foot flagstone patio and connecting walkways surrounding the entire home.

Additionally there is an open ramada with a 12-jet hot tub, sauna, fire pit, several private patios and ample parking. The home is on approximately one acre of land, surrounded by an adobe and latilla (coyote fence) for additional privacy.

Large viga ceilings are prominent throughout the hacienda, as are Spanish corbels and lintels. To the immediate left of the front door is an open kitchen with talavera tile counters and custom shelving. An eating area is nestled in a corner with bench seating for eight people. The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances: refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, electric stove featuring a ceramic surface and overhead microwave, dishwasher, disposal, double sink. Additional appliances include a coffee maker, blender, 4-slot toaster, crock-pot, griddle, hand mixer and service ware for 16 people. You will find all the necessary kitchen tools to complete any gourmet meal - right down to the wine and brandy glasses.

In the dining room opposite the kitchen, a traditional kiva fireplace captures one’s eye. The center of this room also serves as additional table seating for four people. Of particular fascination is the raised window alcove banco (built in bed or bench) with latilla ceiling. The banco offers extended sleeping for 2 guests on a full size mattress.

An extensive entertainment center features a 27” (surround sound) satellite television, a video recorder with remote and a Sony AM/FM/CD cassette stereo system. A second television and video recorder are located in Bedroom 3. The four bedrooms are separated, two on each side of the living-dining- kitchen area, providing privacy and ease of movement throughout the house

At night, guests enjoy starry skies, glistening snow off the Sangre de Christo Mountain Range and the glowing valley lights of Arroyo Seco while relaxing in the 8 person 14 jet hot tub. The outdoor sauna is an additional amenity found in only a few Taos vacation rentals.

Montana Luz is ideal for families and groups desiring to be together under one very southwest roof for a true Taos experience!

Guest Comments about this Home
My wife and I took the opportunity to be in TAOS for our anniversary. We stayed at Montana Luz….. WOW, what a romantic house. A lot of charm, very cozy. The views were spectacular. We had coffee on the patio each morning to start our day….and Jacuzzi at night. We didn’t want to leave after 7 days. Next time we’re bringing friends. Dan and Karen Rafferty, Ohio

My girlfriends and I stayed at Montana Luz for a long weekend. I must say what a fun place and very secure with the electric security gate. We all felt very comfortable. What a neat and clean true Adobe home. Your caretaker was wonderful. Thank you Sondra. Richmond, Texas Sincerely, Wendy Severance & Nashville Friends

Montana Luz was the center of our stay. We came in from all over the country. Dallas, Montana, Illinois, Pennsylvania. We couldn’t have picked a better home. Montana Luz had everything even a great atmosphere. The Dry Sauna was a nice touch. We were close to everything we wanted…Mountains, Shopping, Great Restaurants. Thank you for keeping a beautiful home and opening it up to people like us. Wonderful memories. Tony Campeau, Montana

What a beautiful place for family to get together. We had lost my Uncle and wanted to bring the family back together. I could have stayed at Montana Luz the whole time. We skied and hung out. Montana Luz felt like home. We are now planning our next trip to come back and stay again. Thank you for letting us stay. Diane & Matt O’Connor, Illinois

This was not an easy trip to get everyone on the same page. Once we got to Montana Luz the fun started. We felt right at home and still talk about how cool the place was. When we come back to Taos were staying at “Montana Luz”. Rocky Seale, Texas

Nice place in Arroyo Seco - The home was neat, spacious, and clean. The location is very good - close to the ski area, close to town. It is a beautiful area and the home was very convenient to what we wanted to do. Kamphaus family, Dallas, TX

We had a wonderful time here. It was not far from Taos Ski Valley and the view was great. We got lots of great snow while we were there, which the kids loved. Overall we had a great experience! Shelly S, Huenster, TX

This property has great charm! Montana luz Hacienda was "Casa Grande" with sleeping for 13. There were actually 13 of us during our first two weeks and everyone enjoyed the enormous deck area, hot tub and fire pit and great fenced yard N. Mathews

Great place. Great condition, great stay. A very charming property, perfect for big groups. T. Hendricks
