One of our last hurrahs of summer. A visit to Taos, NM and this quintessential log cabin nestled in the foothills of one of the most soulful landscapes in the state. There is a lot to enjoy here, but our main focus is to retreat and to find a special setting to return to again and again.
If you saw my last post and got the idea that you might want a visit to Taos yourself, you might want to stay here! The link to Jordan Cabin is here. (A lovely antique bench sits on the porch.)
The lower cabin originated in Missouri and was moved to the present location and reassembled log by log.The interior is everything you might imagine in a classic woodsy cabin anywhere.
Decorated with fine furniture and wonderful original art, the interior is the natural result of a cabin that is owned by a prominent local artist and his wife. This large deer painting, and others painted by the artist himself, hang in the beautiful rooms.
The staircase to the loft is steep and almost a nod to the local native architecture which once used ladders to enter their dwellings!
A striking arched window on the landing upstairs brightens the interior.
The views just outside the double door are spectacular! We especially enjoyed the birding early in the day.
A small irrigation canal runs through the secluded property located on the outskirts of Taos. Near enough to town to never have to cook! Little old outbuildings add to the ambiance.
A small orchard lies on the slopes below.
A few Taos blue metal lawn chairs captured my vintage heart. You could probably take home a souvenir painting of your stay if you want. . .
The artist's charming rendering hangs over the bed upstairs!
Jerry Jordan's art studio is found right outside beyond these wonderful chippy turquoise doors. If you are interested to know more about the artist here is an article to get you started.
Those windows open to a spacious upstairs sleeping loft that lets in the fragrant mountain air. We were lucky enough to enjoy a passing summer storm during our stay.
Surrounded by history on all sides, we had an enriching and restful stay in one of the most enchanting locations anywhere. Can't wait to return in fall and winter!
So nice that you stopped by for a look!
Now we're off to the grower's market.
