“This is a magical little farm in the mountains… Lovely and clean cabins, fresh eggs from the hens in the back yard, sunshine and pleasant walking with Forest trails for hiking right across the road. I came for an extended stay, and just may have to extend it a bit longer – it will be hard to leave here!” – Krista from Airbnb

“The Dorothy Brett Cabin was a rustic cabin with a bedroom/living space, kitchen and bathroom. Unit was very clean. Location was excellent. Despite being attached to another cabin, you could hear absolutely no noise or talking in the unit next door. Even though it seems you are far from town, you are really not. Plus, it can be closer to other cool things so research what you want to do. You are about a couple miles off the main road so you don’t hear any road noise and at night, the stars are amazing. For the price, this place was a great value. The response time of the host was among the fastest I have ever seen. The owner, Sia, is very interested in your experience being good. Our toaster was not working and by the time we returned from being out, there was a new unit on the porch.” – William from Airbnb

“An incredibly cozy and peaceful spot! I had such a special stay in the breathtakingly beautiful mountains just outside Taos, and this cabin had everything I needed — quiet, warm and welcoming with wonderfully kind hosts. Definitely recommend it!” – Margaret from Airbnb
