Stay Taos Style - Rent and Adobe

Experience Taos Adobe Style
When visiting Taos there is no better way to have the "Taos Experience" by staying in an Adobe.
An adobe home is a house made from bricks of clay and straw. Building homes using adobe bricks is thought to date back to about 8300 BC.
The state of New Mexico contains about a third of all adobe homes in the United States.
Taos Pueblo dates back over 1000 years and approximately over 150 Pueblo Indians still live there today. The Pueblo is made entirely of adobe -- earth mixed with water and straw, then either poured into forms or made into sun-dried bricks. The walls are frequently several feet thick.
Rosslynn Reservations  has a variety of rentals available that are Adobe style You can even rent long term at reduced rates.
The beautiful thing, apart from the aesthetics of these buildings, is that in the heat of summer when temperatures can soar above 100 adobe structures stay cool in the day.

Rosslynn Reservations has been renting quality vacation homes for years. With personalised  one on one customer service we will guide you to the best accommodations for your stay.

We look forward to helping you plan an incredible trip to Taos this summer.

Pepe’s Place and the Rocket Dog

     Pepe’s Place is a beautiful 3 bedroom, 3 bath, adobe style rental home with amazing Taos mountain views, kiva fireplace and outdoor hot tub, with an impressive repeat customer base.  I feel so very fortunate to have this home in the RossLynn Reservations line-up to offer to my guests. It’s name was taken from a painting that the owners’ mother, Cherie, created and hung in the kitchen over the breakfast table area. The whole house sparkles with her colorful, original, fine art that has been called “entertainment for the mind and soul”; an absolutely perfect fit for a Taos home. 

       The first known appearance of Rocky, a friendly neighborhood dog, was a phone call to my office shortly after 4pm check- in time from a mystified yet amused guest. “Terry, we just finished unloading the car and there he was! This big, white dog just sitting on the couch! We don’t know where he came from or how he got in!” Well, over the next few weeks we started to put all the puzzle pieces of Rocky the magic dog (or “Rocket Dog, as we nick named him) together. It seems that Rocky had the good sniff-sense of when guests would arrive and take advantage of all the hub-bub and confusion of car unloading and the front door ajar to quickly move into couch position. We actually had to start forewarning unknowing guests of the loving, big, white furry, couch sitting visitor. 

     One day while getting the house ready for guests, I noticed one of Cherie’s paintings hanging on the master  bedroom wall that had a white dog in it; funny that I never noticed that before. Could it be that Nick’s family had known about Rocky’s appearances all along and never thought to mention it to me? When I asked Cherie she told me that many of the inspirations for her work came from dreams, and that was also true of this source of origin. After having lived in mystical, magical, mysterious Taos all these years, this kind of story was not unusual, but Cherie lived in River Grove, Illinois! 

    Well, years have passed and Rocket Dog is only a memory, a Taos story and a painting on a wall to many of the first guests that stayed at Pepe’s Place. Although , after writing this story last evening, I found myself dreaming of a litter of little white, fuzzy,  loving, puppies. Do you think that maybe??
