Welcome to the true feel of "Old Taos" in the 100 year old historic vacation rental home in the private compound of "Blue Elk Casa" Read the owner's words below as she tells us why this home just may be the one you are searching for to enjoy your valuable vacation days and nights in Taos, New Mexico :
"Our mini-hacienda is one half block from the down town central plaza with the amazing array of wonderful food, art, museums and shopping anyone could wish to find. At the same time your home base is nestled in a totally contained private home that has been hand-painted and crafted with love and which just "feels good" to be in.
In the morning you are footsteps away from the Taos "Main Street Bakery" and the smell of fresh breads and pastries baking - after all, you are on vacation!
At "Blue Elk Casa" you will be staying in one of the most authentic historic Taos vacation rentals offered in Taos, New Mexico. Come and experience true Southwest charm and architecture with adobe walls, viga ceilings, kiva fireplaces, bancos and nichos!

The Blue Elk Casa-Down was the perfect Taos experience. The courtyard, decor and location were ideal. It was like being in a resort with all the amenities of home. The location was close to all attractions including the Taos Pueblo and in walking distance to restaurants and the Plaza. If you go in the summer, make sure to bring a fan as it was very hot during my visit. That was the only down side. It would be ideal for a skiing trip or family getaway.
