Nestled in among the spruce, fir, and aspen of Carson National Forest, Casa de Toro is a 2,244 square foot, all-electric, 3-level, 3-bedroom, 2-bath chalet that sleeps 8 people. The unique character of New Mexico is evident throughout with every room having tongue-and-groove white pine ceilings and hand-plastered walls.
We have also incorporated the talents of local artisans. The outside posts and corbels were carved at Southwest Spiral Design in Taos, the sconces were hand-made in Pojoaque, near Santa Fe, by Stella Trujillo at Light Styles of Santa Fe, the wooden furniture was custom made by Jason Rathbun also from Taos, and an authentic Taos Drum is the coffee table in the living room.
Conveniences abound starting with satellite-based high speed wireless internet access available everywhere in the casa so you can effortlessly check you email, surf the internet or print a document from any room, or while lounging on the 900 sq. ft. deck. In the unlikely event of a brief power outage, a battery backup system for the wireless system still allows you to continue accessing the outside world. Wireless phones throughout the casa make sure you never miss a call and even if you do, there is an answering machine to take it for you.
NOTE: Even though the road in front of the casa and the parking access is plowed after every significant snowfall, we suggest you use a 4 WD vehicle in the winter.
