Art patron Mabel Dodge Luhan bought this house about a mile north of Taos Plaza in the 1920s and lived here with her husband, Tony Luhan, while building their main house. It was also their private retreat and guesthouse for visiting notables; Frank Waters wrote People of the Valley here—other guests have included Willa Cather and D. H. Lawrence. Most of the rooms contain kiva fireplaces, Southwestern handcrafted furniture, and original artwork, and all have CD
players—a few have Jacuzzi tubs. Certain adjoining rooms can be combined into suites. Breakfast is a gourmet affair that might include huevos rancheros or Belgian waffles. Perhaps above all else, the "backyards" of the rooms and the secluded outdoor hot tub have a view of Taos Mountain.

This B & B is a great value with many amenities and a host who goes out of his way to assist you. We loved our room with its kiva fireplace and bathroom with two sinks and steam shower. Breakfast was generous, and snacks and juice/coffee are offered all day long. Particularly noteworthy is the secluded outdoor hot tub in which you can bubble yourself into oblivion under the stars. And there's an inviting TV room (there are no TVs in any of the
individual guest rooms), a computer on which you can check your e-mail for free, and plenty of information available about local services.

Nice place would recommend it to all and would stay again if in Taos.
