Beautiful and peaceful. The reviewer who said this place captures the soul of the southwest was right on. My wife and I stayed in the Lady Brett suite, a small but comfortable room with a door leading to a patio and a large grassy area. Beyond the back latilla fence is the Taos Pueblo Reservation and a magnificent view of Taos peak. The entire property is surrounded by large and very mature trees. Host Bren and John could not have been more courteous. Both are talented artist and their paintings and pottery grace the entire property.
The room was spotless, beautifully decorated and built with classic New Mexico architecture and craftsmanship. The bed was one of the best I've had traveling, with a hand carved bedframe artfully done.
The gardens were beautiful, and a nice variety of fresh flowers were placed in our room in a gorgeous vase made by John. Breakfast was homemade and made with care.
The breakfast room was spectacular; a former patio incorporated into the main house with tons of New Mexico sunshine, ivy covered post, and lots of original artwork.
It is extremely rare to find this level of caring at any cost.
