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.

  • Family weekend getaway


    We loved our weekend stay at the Blue Adobe. There was plenty of room for the whole family, which consisted of grandparents, kiddos, and the dog. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Short ride into town. We would love to stay again!

  • cozy, peaceful stay


    we came for the weather and were not disappointed. Taos was more congested then we expected so our retreat outside the city limits was particularly appreciated.
