My wife and I (and dog) just stayed several days at Dos Tusas. Absolutely beautiful property. Views from kitchen and dining area are spectacular. Beautifully decorated house is large and completely appointed. Really appreciated fully stocked kitchen, bathrooms, etc. with top of line equipment and supplies. High grade electronics (Sound, TV, wireless) and it all worked! (Even great towels and coffee machine that grinds fresh with each cup) Amazing library with floor to ceiling bookshelves that make you hope for an ice storm so you never have to leave the room. Lovely yard, beautifully landscaped. Just a perfect getaway house about 10 minutes out of Taos. Liked least: Leaving.
