Stay at Adobe de Artista and treat yourself to a true Taos, New Mexico lodging experience – one of adventure, whimsy and relaxation.
Whether seeking pristine mountain / mesa views, unique architecture,artistic flair or proximity to not only the village of Taos, but also to the Taos Ski Valley and the "must see" Taos Gorge, this home has it all.
A custom home designed and built by Taos’ famous painter, Ed Sandoval. This distinctive residence is built with man made Old World style adobe bricks. Many interior walls glitter with straw and mica made from pure unadulterated New Mexico earth. Mica is a naturally-occurring element in... surrounding land that gives Taos Pueblo pottery its characteristic appearance.
Unexpected swirls of paint in bedrooms and bathrooms add a whimsical ambiance and a river stone shower/tub surrounded by plants make the master bathroom feel like a garden. This home is not just livable art but it is warm, inviting and nurturing to the soul.
Staying in for the day? Depending on the weather, put your feet up and read a book on the bancos in the “conversation pit” next to a traditional wood-burning kiva fireplace; enjoy a glass of wine on the portal swing while listening to birds and soft chimes blowing in the breeze; or prepare a favorite meal on the grill and dine beneath an umbrella while taking in the magic of Taos Mountain. For good weather (which is most of the time) you may prefer heading out for a mountain or river excursion, or some local culture? Not sure how you want to spend the day? You’ll find the home contains all the material you need to determine the best places to go for entertainment and dining to suit your every whim.
On return from your outing, no matter what the season, soothe tired muscles in the hot tub beneath a moonlit sky so clear you can see the Milky Way. Finally, sleep like a baby on beds appointed with foam or pillow-top mattresses.
Whether this is your first or 100th visit to Northern New Mexico, Adobe de Artista promises a stay like no other in traditional Taos artful adobe living.

We stayed for the new years and really enjoyed the beautiful home. Every room had designer touches. The only complaint we had was the road to the home, make sure you have a rugged vehicle because the very long washed out road was a difficult drive even in our big truck.
