Taos Goji Eco Lodge and Farm is nestled in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains. We have charming, historic log cabins for rent in close proximity to Taos, NM (11 miles) and the Taos Ski Valley and Red River (30 minutes). These fully furnished vacation homes are situated on a 40 acre goji berry farm. The cabins are surrounded by national forest with a great view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Our location is a perfect event venue to hold small retreats, reunions and weddings with a 500 sq ft lodge space and a 1600 sq ft open barn.
Some of the cabins were built at the beginning of last century, originally used by sheepherders and were once the center of town. The English writer Aldous Huxley lived and wrote in one of the cabins and also built an outhouse that is still intact. We found watercolors by writer, poet and painter D.H. Lawrence as well as letters between himself and his wife Frieda in the attic. Elizabeth Kubler Ross, a pioneer in psychiatry and spiritual teacher Ram Dass have also stayed here. We raise organic goji berries and chickens. We also have a sheep and a small goat. Fresh veggies and eggs are available seasonally.
We are located in the countryside and city slickers may be dismayed by the lack of streetlights and the quietude at night. Our internet connection gets spotty during rain storms and snow. Depending on your cell phone provider you may have to drive to the post office or up the road to get reception. (We have a landline to enable connection anywhere in the U.S.) We’re not a motel or hotel: these are clean, rustic country cabins, perfectly suited to creative individuals who desire a break from the hustle and bustle of civilization. Taos Goji Eco Lodge and Farm is also an excellent place to bring your children to appreciate country living. Our farm is a wonderful introduction to camping or glamping for families who want a degree of country comfort, a place to get away from the TV and computer games. Don’t panic, Taos is a only 15 minutes away!
