A cobblestoned walkway leads to this quiet place protected by the large trees in the yard and the thick adobe walls surrounding the inn, and it is only a few blocks from the Taos town plaza. We had stayed once during the winter, and our summer stay there was just as enjoyable with perfect weather in the form of warm days and cool, fall-like nights.
The unique southwestern atmosphere of the inn is highlighted by its Pueblo Revival Architecture and adobe walls that were constructed in the 1800's and the artwork inside the dining room. The front portal (see photo below) with the hanging dried chiles and old fountain lead us to our room.
This inn was highly recommended by several guidebooks, and it was easy to see why. Our room, the La Loma Studio, was decorated with rugs and artwork in Native American patterns with soft denim blues covering the sofa and bed and handcrafted furniture with tin trim. Most rooms have a fireplace that can be used in the winter, and the hot tub outside would also be inviting in colder weather! This room also had a kitchenette and small refrigerator for extended stays.
We had a delicious breakfast served in the spacious dining room (see photo below), with Eggs OLE! and the Frappe of the Day was Raspberry Banana.
Having breakfast there with the view of the mountains after a refreshing night's sleep was a great start to a day of hiking and fishing.
I was able to find out a lot of information beforehand about this inn at their website: www.vacationtaos.com
