“A little Eden”
Reviewed 27 November 2006

We have stayed at the Burch Street Casitas many times over the years. Each visit is filled with pleasant memories. The casitas are well appointed and comfortable...decorated with a New Mexican flair by the owners, Nancy and Jim. We have always taken our dogs who enjoy being able to step outside on our private patio and sniff around. They also enjoy the walks with the close proximity to the park which has a great walking path. For humans, the walk to the village is perfect. We never tire of the galleries and shops and the Taos Pueblo.

My wife found this wonderful place from someone that stayed there, we made reservations on the phone. The Casitas are very nice and comfortable. King size bed which is very comfortable, cable TV with a VHR player and a selection of movies or bring your favorites. fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to prepare your meals, washer and dryer is very handy if you are traveling for more than a few days. The bath has a tub shower and is very nice. Thw wood burning fireplace is very comfortable and cozy. The units are only 4 blocks from the Taos plaza, an easy walk and you don't have to worry about a place to park and there are many things too do on the plaza. When we arrived Nancy brought over a bottle of wine for us which was a nice touch. I can/t think of anything that i wouls change, very nice accomodations, we even stayed an extra night as we enjoyed taos so much. If you are looking for a good place to stay for a few days that is in downtown taos, I highly recommend the Burch Street casitas.

The Burch Street Casitas in Taos are all about charm, comfort, and atmosphere -- and an unbelievable $99 a night. We stayed for a week, 9/10 to 9/16/06. The beautiful four-year-old Casitas, or little homes, are nestled under towering 200 year old Cottonwood trees on private property. (See our pictures attached)

The Casitas may be new, but they are loaded with Old World charm, from the warm stucco exteriors and arched doors, to the beamed ceilings and Mexican-tiled floors. Light and airy with
lots of windows and inset glass blocks to let in the New Mexico morning light and dramatic afternoon shadows. A separate door leads to a spacious-covered patio, perfect for morning coffee or settling in with a book.

The hosts, Jim and Nancy, are former city folks and such a nice couple. Their restored adobe home reflects their artistic nature. Jim is a chef with a wealth of information on restaurants and
food. He told us they designed the Casitas to be “What we like when we travel.”

Now for the practical stuff. Taos is four and a half hours from Denver and an hour and a half from Santa Fe. The Casitas are very clean and well maintained. Each has a brand new, fully-
equipped kitchen, cable TV, comfortable bed and bedding. We liked having breakfast at the Casita instead of going out every morning. A couple of nights we wanted to kick back after long days of trekking the shops and museums, so we heated up delicious leftovers from our restaurant meals and watched a movie.

A small stacked washer/dryer with detergent made it easy to wash out my favorite jeans. The bedroom area is tucked out of the way of the main living space. Our Casita had quaint Southwest touches throughout, including hand-cut cornices over the windows.

The Casitas don't usually have daily “maid service,” which we preferred. It gave us a wonderful sense of privacy and seclusion. (If you needed something, however, Jim or Nancy would be there in a minute.) The Burch Street Casitas are on our permanent Must-Stay List. Burch Street Casitas comes up on Google.

Favorite Drive: Santa Fe is a scenic hour and a half away. Fun but we liked to escape the crowds and get back to Taos at the end of the day. (Road can be tricky after dark.)

Favorite walks from Burch Street Casitas: The little town of Taos is three short blocks. Don’t miss the Bent Street shops. A short walk leads to beautiful mountain and meadow views.

Favorite restaurant: Doc Martin’s at the Taos Inn (walking distance). Great atmosphere and food breakfast, lunch or dinner. Try the rich blue corn blueberry pancakes!

Favorite museum: The Millicent Rogers Museum (and house). Fabulous house, jewelry, art, and setting.

Wireless: We picked up a couple of wireless connections to check email.

  • Liked — Charm, comfort, cleanliness, convenience, beauty
  • Disliked — I can't think of a thing!
  • Tips/Secrets — Pack light, there is a washer/dryer. Take your time to explore the local Taos area.
