The Steel Pueblo comes in the form of a boutique lodging experience where your stay will be a focal point of your travels rather than a place to rest your head. It is a wonderful place to stay for anyone who wants to have a productive time for work and/or self-care. This is an incredibly unique home situated close to the downtown area of Taos, yet also on a large lot with never-ending views. The mountains circle it so you can enjoy views at every angle. It has stunning views, and the interior design truly makes you feel like you are living in luxury.
There is a separate bedroom with a queen-sized bed and storage for your belongings. The wall of windows accompanied by floor-to-ceiling windows to show off Toas city night views right from your bed. Watching the sunrise and starry views and amazing mountain sunsets while lying in a very comfortable bed is a breathtaking experience. Still, blinds are built-in in all dual paned windows for privacy when needed.
The bathroom has a shower along with all other amenities that you might need. Hot water is good but limited in the shower. It is best to take a camp-style shower, which means turning the shower off when you are not rinsing to make sure the hot water lasts as long as you need it.
The house is such a cute and great use of space. The three glass doors in the living room can be slid to the side for your living area to spill onto the porch. The sun shines through the container home, brightening the space and accentuating the surrounding mountain views.
All amenities are provided and what you need to live is there. The living room has a Smart TV and fiber-optic internet that makes it a great place to work from. There is a futon for extra sleeping space if needed, a model-style rocking chair for you to snuggle up with a nice book, and a small table for your workspace. The 12000 BTU mini-split will provide heat/air to make sure you will always remain comfortable.
The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, electric stovetop, oven, and Keurig to fuel you for your day of adventures. Cook any basic meals with all the utensils and cooking products provided and enjoy them at a counter bar. Do note that there is only a mini-fridge available, so be aware of that when bringing food to the store.
The mountains circle the Steel Pueblo so that you can enjoy views at every angle. There is a private back porch to sip your coffee and watch the sunrise over the mountain tops. Take a seat on the front deck to appreciate the mountains and many hummingbird visitors that will join you out there. This is a great space to meditate, paint, do yoga, all with a gorgeous view of the mountains. The deck is also equipped with a wood-burning hot tub to soak yourself in after a long day while seeing the lights of town glimmer.
Rusted Corten Steel gives the container an earth look with the teal door’s color pop paying homage to the Taos Pueblo houses. The entire space, including all 2 acres, is included in this rental to make sure you feel at home. However, if you have dogs be careful of wandering large dog packs outside, the .3 miles down a bumpy dirt road to the house, so in winter, a 4-wheeled is heavily recommended and arrive in daylight if you can.
The location itself is amazing. It makes you feel like you are remote but actually is only 10 minutes from town and all local adventures such as John Dunn bridge, Red River Brewing, Comanche brewing, Manby, Saw Mill Market, and nearby hot springs. Other favorite spots in Taos including Taos Mesa Brewing, Medley for HH, and Chokola to get the Aztec sipping chocolate. If you go to Vivac winery, get the Tempranillo, Malbec, Sangiovese, and the chili chocolate to pair.
