We live a few miles south of Taos, New Mexico on a beautiful, quiet dirt road. The house is a 2800 sq/ft 3BR/2BA adobe on 2 acres of land with a hot tub, lots of fruit trees (apricot, apple, cherry, plum and chokecherry) and a great view of Taos Mountain. We have 2 dogs, a cat, (a lazy Akbash, a sweet Aussie cattle dog, and a loving grey tabby), 50 chickens and a large vegetable garden so we are looking for a sitter who loves animals and tending a garden (weeding a couple days a week, making sure that the watering system is functioning properly, and eating whatever is ready).
Taos is at its best in the summer with hiking in the mountains, rafting, biking trails all near by. The town is a thriving artists' colony with many galleries to check out and there will be great music in Kit Carson Park. Restaurants in the town offer a wide range of cuisine from northern New Mexican to Asian. We are just over an hour north of Santa Fe and the ruins at Bandalier, and two hours from the Great Sand Dunes Natl Park in Colorado.
