    Historic (1790) walled adobe hacienda 6 miles south of Taos Plaza. The earliest Hacienda along the historic Camino Real.

    Historic walled adobe hacienda bounded by the original "Camino Real" and the gently flowing Rio Chiquito river. Exquisitely renovated and furnished. Each room has a candle burning kiva fireplace and its own entry to one of three private courtyards.

    The oldest section of the compound was constructed of two foot thick adobe walls prior to 1790. There was an influx of Spanish settlers at this time, migrating along crystalline steams flowing from surrounding mountain peaks into the Taos valley. The diminished threat of Comanche raids deterred prior habitation outside of the 1000 year old Taos Pueblo.

    The Rio Chiquito area (now called Talpa) was included in the Cristobal de la Serna grant from the King of Spain in the 1600's. New Mexico trading expeditions to Mexico have a long history and were annual events in the 18th and 19th centuries.

    In 1823, the adjoining Plaza of Rio Chiquito was formally established. A small chapel was built in 1828 beside the hacienda dedicated to "Our Lady of San Juan" in honor of the Jalisco Mexico shrine to the Virgin Mary. The beautifully maintained chapel was licensed in 1833 to hold divine offices (religious services) and is still in working use today. The original altar screen, painted by the sauntero "Molleno" in the folk tradition of northern New Mexico is prominently displayed. A formerly detached one bedroom casita with kitchen, living, dining area is now built into the outer wall of the hacienda served as a convent at one time.

    The "Hacienda;s" open great room with a 20ft high viga ceiling and imposing kiva fireplace has an ambiance like none other.

    The formal dining room with original brick floor and kiva fireplace leads to the hall from which all three bedrooms are accessed.

    The three bedrooms and a den are situated privately from the main living area and offer quiet solitude. A steam shower and Jacuzzi adorn the large master suite with a king bed and flat screen TV. The den, adjoining the master bedroom, has a queen sleeper sofa and is perfect for sleeping two children or for a quiet getaway or movies on its large flat screen TV.

    An outdoor grill and hot tub are easily accessible from all 3 units, still affording privacy from each of the units.. A massive outdoor wood burning kiva fireplace centers a covered patio with seating for the entire party.

    The "Casita" (once the convent) has a large bedroom with a kiva fireplace and queen bed. The living room has a flat screen TV. and candle burning kiva fireplace. A small efficiency kitchen with soapstone counters and gas range is open to the dining and TV. area.

    The "Art Studio" has been completely remodeled with a window wall overlooking a covered patio and large courtyard surrounded by latilla fencing (Aspen tree limbs) next to the river. This room accommodates two and has an all new bathroom with shower. Several skylights and a kiva fireplace provide an exceptional light and bright interior. A private driveway leads up to the studio's gated entrance.

    The Hacienda is a "One of a Kind" Taos lodging experience and one that your party will remember and cherish for years.

    September in Adobe Hacienda Compound was an awesome lodging experience for our group of 14. There was more than ample space for our group. We wanted to cook and dine and visit together and the layout was perfect for that. The Cottage and Studio provided quiet getaway space for those who wanted to "get away from it all". The huge living area in the main house was awesome with a hand crafted latilla ceiling that is a work of art. Furnishings are upscale and tasteful throughout. If looking for unique accommodations and great service, this is the place to stay. - The Barber's from PA
