Experience true Southwest charm and architecture with sound proof, thick adobe walls, viga ceilings, kiva fireplace, bancos (Spanish for built in bench or bed) and nichos (cubby hole's for displaying religious items or art). Most important - you are located within a two minute walk from Taos Plaza still being able to enjoy total peace, serenity and absolute privacy from neighbors or passers-by in this adobe walled compound.

    We rented both the upstairs and downstairs units and found both apartments comfortable, well furnished, and clean. I would not hesitate to recommend the Blue Elk Casa (both floors) to anyone. - M. Currier

    We stayed in the Blue Elk Casa for a week while we skied and loved it. I would highly recommend it! You can't beat the location, one block off the plaza. Management went above and beyond their call of duty every chance they got and even rescued us from a night in a hotel when we locked ourselves out one evening. - The Georgantas family

    Beautiful home - well appointed, lovely patio. GREAT location!! EASY parking - very valuable in Taos - and very walkable to LeDoux St., plaza, shopping. Perfect access to Camino de la Placitas to bypass the plaza congestion if you are going farther afield. Everything we needed! Will definitely return to this property. - L. Young
