The Cielo

Taos Mountain
Taos Mountain and the Cielo –  in Spanish Cielo means Sky. From the private deck you have an unhampered view of the night sky that is framed by the sweeping limbs of our 100 year old Cottonwood trees. This room is located on the second floor of Touchstone on the north side of the house. Inside this room you will love the soaking tub! It is so nice to spend an hour or so in quiet seclusion and warm water with the one you love … This room has a queen size bed, a large corner soaking tub with shower for two, fridge, microwave, coffee and wine service. The floors of this room are wooden parquet tiles that glow beautifully and the ceiling is handcrafted from latillas and vigas. This room has a great private deck with the most light exposure of all of our rooms. Enjoy this jewel of a room!

Touchstone is a house with many different rooms available for you to enjoy. Touchstone’s living room and dining room are communal spaces open during business hours and by appointment. Enjoy writing a postcard or playing the baby grand. Borrow a book, or enjoy Touchstone’s art collection. Sit for a while in front of the fire and let us tell you about the history of the house and our close connection to Mable Dodge and Tony Luhan.

Our Gallery has been called a living watercolor, where the bright light streaming through the skylights and conservatory windows animate the artist’s work, and the gourmet breakfast is as inventive as the decor.

All rooms have a two night minimum and can be booked online.
