Old Taos Guesthouse is a charming, cozy, intimate bed and breakfast. Nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains on 40 acres at over 7400 ft. elevation, it is just minutes from Taos Ski Valley, Taos Mountain Trail System, Frijoles Hacienda National Historic Site, and renowned art galleries.
The original adobe building was built in 1859 by an early settler for his bride as a wedding present. The cozy feel of this home is emphasized by the warmth of handmade furniture collected from all over the world, including Victorian-period New England pieces from Vermont to Indonesian teak tables made by traditional carvers in Bali. In addition to the original building, there are also two additional guest houses.
A full hot breakfast is served daily in the sunroom of the main house, where guests gather. It consists primarily of homemade bread, muffins, and pastries and is accompanied by fresh fruit, yogurt, homemade granola, juices, and a choice of several hot entrees. The fee for this three-course breakfast is included in your room rate.
The natural surroundings include a pond that is home to rainbow trout, ducks, and swans that have been rescued. A waterfall cascades into a small pond with stepping stones leading around it to provide an opportunity for peaceful meditative walks in nature. A gas line runs from the property to the main house so guests can enjoy a shared laundry room, kitchen, and bathroom.
We are happy to accept dogs for a fee of $25 per night and cats for a fee of $15 per night.
All dogs must be leashed in the central part of the property, but they are welcome to roam throughout our guest houses without restriction. We have no freestanding fences at our guest houses. The only enforced leash law is when you enter or leave our property, where we do enforce leash laws on guests and their pets (state statute requires it). A 5-acre fenced ranch is available for group camping ($85 per night).
