casitas kitchen and dining room

The Burch Street Casitas in Taos are all about charm, comfort, and atmosphere -- and an unbelievable $110 a night. We stayed for a week, 9/10 to 9/16/06. The beautiful four-year-old Taos Casitas, or little homes, are nestled under towering 200 year old Cottonwood trees on private property.

The Casitas may be new, but they are loaded with Old World charm, from the warm stucco exteriors and arched doors, to the beamed ceilings and Mexican-tiled floors. Light and airy with lots of windows and inset glass blocks to let in the New Mexico morning light and dramatic afternoon shadows. A separate door leads to a spacious-covered patio, perfect for morning coffee or settling in with a book.

The hosts, Jim and Nancy, are former city folks and such a nice couple. Their restored adobe home reflects their

artistic nature. Jim is a chef with a wealth of information on restaurants and food. He told us they designed the Casitas to be "What we like when we travel."

Now for the practical stuff: Taos is four and a half hours from Denver and an hour and a half from Santa Fe. The Casitas are very clean and well maintained. Each has a brand new, fully-equipped kitchen, cable TV, comfortable bed and bedding. We liked having breakfast at the Casita instead of going out every morning. A couple of nights we wanted to kick back after long days of trekking the shops and museums, so we heated up delicious leftovers from our restaurant meals and watched a movie.

A small stacked washer/dryer with detergent made it easy to wash out my favorite jeans. The bedroom area is tucked out of the way of the main living space. Our Casita had quaint Southwest touches throughout, including hand-cut cornices over the windows.

The Casitas don't usually have daily "maid service," which we preferred. It gave us a wonderful sense of privacy and seclusion. (If you needed something, however, Jim or Nancy would be there in a minute.) The Burch Street Casitas are on our permanent Must-Stay List. Burch Street Casitas comes up on Google.

Favorite Drive:
Santa Fe is a scenic hour and a half away. Fun but we liked to escape the crowds and get back to Taos at the end of the day. (Road can be tricky after dark.)

Favorite walks from Burch Street Casitas:
The little town of Taos is three short blocks. Don't miss the Bent Street shops. A short walk leads to beautiful mountain and meadow views, Taos Plaza, the park, & the historic Taos Inn. And you can't miss the beautiful, almost ancient, giant cottonwoods.

Favorite Restaurant:
Doc Martin's at the Taos Inn (walking distance). Great atmosphere and food breakfast, lunch or dinner. Try the rich blue corn blueberry pancakes!

Favorite Museum:
The Millicent Rogers Museum (and house). Fabulous house, jewelry, art, and setting.

We picked up a couple of wireless connections to check email.

"What a great "launching pad" for our adventure! Thanks for the thoughtful arrangement of the casitas and the excellent restaurant advice. Count on us becoming regulars!"
 -- Heather and Jeff, Louisville, CO

"I found Burch Street Casitas on the internet. I called Jim and felt he was a good guy and I would take a chance on his casitas for four nights. Now, this was a big decision because I am traveling with my ninety year old mother who can't hear very well. Well, she loved the casita. It was charming and comfortable. So, I would say congrats to Nancy and Jim for what they have accomplished here. I had my own B&B in East Hampton, New York, so I know what it takes!"
