You can also check out other historical sites like Taos Pueblo, Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, and more.

Visitors to Taos enjoy hiking, biking, golfing, whitewater rafting, and horseback riding in the summer. In the winter, Taos becomes a ski haven for skiers and snowboarders alike—as this area offers world-class terrain, significant snowfall, and an abundance of après-ski opportunities. Less than 30 minutes from the ski areas, you and your guest can quickly find your way onto the mountain tops.

As you enter this 1-bedroom, 1-bath home-away-from-home, you'll admire the simplicity of its design, which requires less energy in the summer and winter months. You and your guest will feel at home on the cozy couch or oversized armchair as you reminisce about old times or quietly watch television to unwind after a long adventurous day. The large windows and natural lighting flooding into the room give it a nice glow at sunrise and sunset.

When making a romantic home-cooked meal for two, you'll find the size of the kitchen in Casita de Alfrero perfect.
