Location Details

This area, locally known as the Old Blinking Light "OBL," is located at the "hub" of Route 64, 150, & 522. To this day, it still remains a local reference point decades after the traffic light went in.

No matter what outdoor sport you prefer, you'll be hard-pressed to find a landscape as perfect as Taos. Voted one of the 'Top 10 Outdoor Sports Locations' by Outdoor Magazine and 'Best Ski Town’ by USA Today, this New Mexican paradise has something for everyone.

Shred the slopes like Red Gerard at Taos Ski Valley, located just 25 minutes from the property. With 13 lifts and 110 trails, Taos provides award-winning terrain for both rookie riders and Olympic hopefuls. The season free ski shuttle is just 1 mile away at KTAO parking lot.

Take a quick 5-mile ride to Taos Plaza and experience authentic Southwestern culture. Founded in 1796 this area offers delicious restaurants, great galleries, and top-notch nightlife. Stop by the Taos Mesa Brewery or the KTAO Solar Center for some live entertainment. You can also find top-notch live entertainment and dancing just .7 miles down the road at KTAOS Solar Center.

Taos Plaza isn't the only place in the area to enjoy live music. Be sure to check out the city's event calendar and attend a few festivals. With everything from Music in the Park to a hot air balloon festival and Las Fiestas de Taos, there is something fun happening every weekend!

When you don't feel like cooking? Head to the Taos Mesa Brewery Mother Ship. Located 3.3 miles from the property, the brewery offers even more music stages and a taproom that serves tacos and beer.

For summertime entertainment, find river access under the John Dunn Bridge, explore the Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument, hike the Turquoise Trail, or bask in the cliff dwellings of Bandelier National Monument. The towns of Los Alamos and Santa Fe are both about 90 minutes down the road if you’re looking for a fun day trip.

  • Wonderful, beyond expectations


    We were in Taos for the premier of "La Tormenta de Taos" and Blue Adobe was such a perfect "home base" for our preparations that we intend to return often! My only hesitation is when people find out how good it is, it will be harder for us to book it!

    Blue adobe was a great house to spend a relaxing holiday weekend in! We were able to ski, go shopping in Taos, and explore the area with ease. The steam shower was amazing and the communication was superb.

    Lovely house, very clean, plenty of room for our group of six. The host left a bottle of wine and focaccia bread -- a nice touch. Will definitely book again.
