Inside the Home

This ultra-luxe vacation home takes traditional adobe architecture — offering a taste of Southwestern culture — and modernizes it to fit the needs of today’s traveler. Sitting on over eight acres of land with a river and mountains nearby, Gem Hacienda feels like a secret hideaway surrounded by nature, but with the added benefit of WiFi and commercial streaming services. With 8,000 square feet of living space, including nine bedrooms that accommodate up to 30 guests, there’s more than enough space for families, friend groups, corporate retreats, small wedding parties, and more. The property also includes a fully equipped chef’s kitchen, an intimate bar, and an outdoor hot tub perfect for some nighttime stargazing.

The Experience

At Gem Hacienda, no two vacations are alike as our dedicated concierge completely customizes each guest experience. For those who want to relax on property, we can bring spa-worthy massages and private yoga classes to you. If being treated to delicious food is your idea of luxury, allow us to plan for private, chef-curated meals or cooking classes. And if outdoor adventure is what you’re looking for, our concierge would be happy to arrange those activities for you, too.


Though you can really “get away from it all” at Gem Hacienda, the beauty of its location is that the vibrant town center is only a few minutes away. You’ll find eclectic shops and outdoor markets selling a variety of Taos-made goods from award-winning chocolate and colorful plants to hand-made clothing, leatherwork, and jewelry. International cuisine is also up for grabs with options for casual street food, fine dining and everything in between. And just outside of town, you can easily experience the great outdoors with hiking, skiing, kayaking, horseback riding, mountain climbing, hot air balloon rides and more.
