À propos de ce logement

The authentic Wild West has never been this close or this comfortable! Our 1898 Chile Line boxcar-casita is loaded with unique charm, hand-crafted touches and complimentary treats that will make your stay in beautiful Taos New Mexico unforgettable.

Le logement

Quiet, private and on a dead-end road with views over the open Taos landscape, some call the boxcar a sanctuary. This historic boxcar-casita is nestled next to the ever-changing organic garden and is perfect for those seeking sports & adventure, historic sightseeing, budget small family lodging, a romantic getaway, or a quiet retreat. It is great for quiet celebrations, but it is not a party house!

For the weary traveler the queen-sized bed, nestled in the garden-end of the box car, is well-appointed. Guests have called it the "most comfortable", and "best sleep I have had in ages". The sleeper sofa is easily made up to accommodate a third guest in the living room/library. A walk-in closet provides ample storage for short stays.

The big flat screen TV (with local channels, Netflix, Amazon Prime & a DVD player) and Bose surround sound can be luxuriously viewed from bed, the state-of-the-art loungers, and the dinning nook. More entertainment choices include a radio/boombox, games, the library & wifi internet. It has been photovoltaic-powered for last 15 years.

The compact kitchenette includes china, silverware, glasses, mugs, wine glasses, a two-burner electric stove, a small fridge, sink, toaster oven, microwave, coffee grinder and tea kettle. We also offer complimentary bubbly water, home-made granola and there breakfast foo, coffee, a variety of teas, 1/2&1/2 and basic spices. Next to the kitchenette is the dining nook with stunning views.

The luxurious claw-foot 'slipper tub' is the main feature of the bathroom annex, and invites leisurely baths or hand-held showers while viewing hundreds of acres of agricultural land, seasonally resplendent with coyotes, rabbits, soaring hawks, nesting magpies, cows and calves. The bathroom also features a low-flow toilet and sink, bathrobes, organic hand soaps, shampoo, bubble-bath and body creams.

Accès des voyageurs

Our guests have access to all of the facilities and amenities in and around the train car, its outside BBQ grill, plus our private hot tub (rules apply, see manual)! And yes, those constantly forming and changing pastures, hundreds of acres reaching out to Taos mountain.

Special note to tall people- our 19th Century train car has less than six foot clearances through doorways and some ceilings, so please be flexible, literally!

Boxcar Rules

We want you to feel at home during your stay, with these simple considerations:
• Please be respectful of the space. While quiet celebrations are encouraged, this is not a "party house".
• The boxcar is strictly a non-smoking space.
• As the boxcar is solar electric powered, please use energy-conserving practices.
• We request that guests be reasonably quiet after dark while outside the boxcar and in the hot tub.
• The hot tub is a guest privilege, and as such demands appropriate use. No drinking, eating or smoking in the hot tub, no excess body oils and creams, and please no love-making there!
• Unless otherwise arranged, guests should plan to arrive after 3 PM. Please call us with your estimated time of arrival so that we can plan to greet you.
• A quiet, well-behaved dog is welcome to accompany you, but please inquire first. In consideration of future guests and the longevity of our furnishings, dogs are not allowed on furniture. If you have been approved to bring your dog and it is a couch-sleeper, we request that you bring appropriate coverings to keep the furniture free of dog hair and dander. Please do not plan to leave your dog alone in the boxcar.
• Unless otherwise arranged, guest check-out time is 11 AM.

We loved our weekend boxcar getaway! Jean and Steve were terrific hosts who went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. They even had birthday champagne in the fridge waiting for us when we arrived! The space was delightful-warm, cozy and full of amenities and snacks. Our hosts were always available for questions/recommendations, too. We highly recommend this place-we had a terrific time!

This Box car is so adorable and comfortable. Everything is so well designed and beautifully thought-out. Jean and Steve were generous and very respectful of our privacy. We will try to come back again soon! We loved it.

Jean and Stephen's boxcar experience was lovely. It was the perfect place to unwind. The raised bed to look out the window, in the morning, and watch the birds (and hear them too!), the kitchen with the beautiful view, and the gorgeous bathtub with another view to look out onto! The warmth and generosity of Jean and Stephen was icing to the cake. For me, it was just what I was looking for--a quiet, beautiful, unique space. I found it extremely restorative and only wish I could have stayed a bit longer.

The boxcar is such a gem and Jean/Steve are truly wonderful hosts. It felt just as cozy as home! We loved gazing at the stars in the hot tub, enjoying the homemade granola and local coffee and our dog Simba had the best time playing with their dog Ollie! All the details and extra love made our stay sincerely unforgettable.

What a beautiful and unique place! We could bird watch from the bathtub and star gaze from the hot tub. And comfy robes!

The high desert mountain valley of Taos New Mexico has been our home for over 40 years, and it must be said that we also have a special love of oceans and sea shores. When we are not traveling the world, we love meeting new people, sharing our love of Taos, and welcoming them to our much-loved boxcar guesthouse.

I am Jean, a retired Montessori teacher, tutor, singer, cook, painter, and vegetable gardener. I used to teach folk dances from around the world and sing Balkan songs and I have a great appreciation for folk cultures. My husband Stephen is a building inspector and solar developer, who loves riding motorcycles. We have two fabulous grown sons who live in Silverlake, CA and Longmont, CO with their respective wives and one adorable granddaughter.
