Canyon View -2BD cabin, forested location near hiking trails, yet close to town!

Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Taos, Taos County, New Mexico
This southwest style cabin is on the sunny side of Taos Canyon, adjacent to the Carson National Forest, close to hiking trails and nearby Rio Fernando. It is 500 feet higher in elevation than town so 'cooler' in the summer. You have amazing views from both decks, a great space to connect with nature. Location is only 15 minutes (6 miles) from Taos Plaza, just close enough to be convenient and just far enough to be away from it all.
We have internet TV (Amazon Fire-Stick), with lots of movies, shows and sports channels set up,WiFi and DVD player, also books and games! This cabin is where the nationally renowned British author and lecturer, Stuart Wilde, lived and wrote four books called 'The Taos Quintet' (we even had the privilege of meeting him, and if interested, would love to share that story!)
We are both very detail...

Interaction with guests
Canyon View is on our private road off Pinon Trail; the cabin is about 1/2 way up, and we live at the very top. We can be as near or as far as most comfortable for you! We leave 'lots' of guides, maps, hiking trail info. on the coffee table for you and are not too far away for any questions you may have. We love to do a 'meet and great' of all our guests how ever brief or lengthy that may be. We have lived here in Taos for 25 years, and know the area very well (my husband, Mike, is quite the history buff!) We also actually lived in that very cabin for 20 years! Taos Canyon is our Taos Love!

The cabin is very comfortable, it has everything needed for relaxing, it is close to town and with easy access to the art galleries and restaurants but at the same time it is secluded. The owners are very personable and helpful and are close by....More

About the neighbourhood
Canyon View is in Taos Canyon, just 6 miles from Taos Plaza --so convenient to shops, galleries, restaurants, and all Taos has to offer! Great hiking trails are minutes away, and we have a notebook of those trails right there for you. We are on The Enchanted Circle Highway, and suggest a drive to complete that circle while you are here. Winter sports -25 miles to Taos Ski Valley, 20 miles to Angel Fire Ski area and 40 miles to Red River Ski area. Speaking of winter, having ether an All-Wheel Drive or Four-Wheel Drive vehicle is a must here; although we keep our road plowed and well-maintained, it has a bit of an incline. For the fishermen, again, great fishing areas are not too far up Taos Canyon (just ask us for details).
Getting around
Having a car to see all Taos has to offer, whether it be The Taos Pueblo, The Gorge Bridge, various historical sites, shops, galleries, restaurants, etc. is a must. There is a commuter bus in Taos, if you can get yourself to the pick-up points; but again, having a car is best.
Car recommended
How to get there
Upon final payment, we will send you detailed directions and check-in info. to our home, also contact information should you need us, have any questions, whatever the case may be. Most of our guests either drive here, or fly into Albuquerque (2 and 1/2 hrs away) and rent a car there. There are 2 airport shuttles -Twin Hearts Express, that goes from Albuquerque to Taos and Sandia Shuttle, that goes from Albuquerque to Santa Fe. We have a commuter bus here locally, as long as you can get yourself to the pick-up points. There are also 2 smaller airports, one here in Taos and one in Santa Fe. For the most part, guests will need a car to get around in Taos.
