In person, Taos House has the same stunning views and cheerful Southwest interior that is shown in its photos. The house was wonderfully appointed from fresh towels and linens to cooking oils and condiments in the kitchen. The location a couple of miles south of town was tranquil and convenient to everything, provided you had a car. My artist friend and I were simply delighted with the house -- as soon as we unpacked, I called my husband and advised him to jump on a plane and come share the beauties of the place with us. Unfortunately, he couldn't, but take that as a measure of how much we loved Taos House. There are a few broken tiles in one of the bathroom floors that need repair, but that was literally the only thing that could be improved. If you want comfort and quiet after a busy day of adventure, this is a wonderful retreat.
