I need a house/pet/garden sitter from thru 7/30 +/- . This is a renovated 850sq.ft adobe house built iin the 1850s on 1/3 acre, which is completely pet-proof fenced. A 10 min. drive will take you to the heart of Taos. Taos is filled with museums, galleries, shops and restaurants. The Taos Pueblo, a national Historical site, is 4 miles from Taos's center. In addition to our artist colony, we have a world class ski resort available for summer activities: hiking, biking trails, & a gondola for views of Taos mountains and valley.
Northern New Mexico is a world unto itself filled with generational farms dating to the 1600s, an old world atmosphere, farmers markets, remote villages, old churches nestled into century old communities. Taos has a wide mixture of people from "old hippies" to "techies" driving Porsches to artists and writers.
My house retains the old world atmosphere with 18" walls, no TV, no microwave, no dishwasher -- BUT -- Wifi is good, lots of books to read and enjoy the view of Taos mountain, a pasture scattered with cows and horses, and bird and hummingbird feeders scattered around the casita. The casita is cozy filled w/ art from my travels.
There are hiking trails everywhere the area. Amy is a sweetheart with her scrunched up English Bulldog nose and loves to cuddle. Alice is beyond friendly and always up for a drive or walk ANYWHERE! Dogs and cats are happy to be outside during the day. Amy is a bit more discerning since summertime presents heat issues for her.. so she enjoys life on her cushion on the patio, unless her walk is early morning or late afternoon! Cats are very independent but enjoy being inside at nighttime! Come and experience the old world charm of our little artist's community drive to Santa Fe, 30 min. drive to Taos Ski area..
Come visit !
