Vacation Rental Description
In Taos, New Mexico, at the end of Morada Lane, just two blocks east of Taos Plaza, you'll find an intimate lodging option for your southwestern retreat. The northeast wing of the home was originally Saint Teresa's Mission in the mid to late 1800's. Later in the 1930's, it was part of the Mabel Dodge Luhan estate, then Taos Society of Artists' Victor Higgins' studio.
In recent years, the registered historic landmark was a prestigious art gallery. Georgia O'Keefe was inspired to paint her famous "cross series" here. She was enchanted by the light playing upon the old morada behind the house which is surrounded by sacred Taos Pueblo land. Ansel Adams, D.H. Lawrence and many other intriguing guests have also stayed here over the years.
Peaceful and serene, Casita Morada is now available to inspire you. It is ideal for creative artists and writers who appreciate "a certain slant of light" and a relaxing place for quite reflection.
