Taos Pueblo has been closed to visitors due to coronavirus precautions since March 11, 2020. For more information, check the website at or call (575) 758-1028.

In the historic Taos Inn, on 125 Paseo del Pueblo Norte, is room 102 one of 45 unique guest rooms only this one has a silver Nambé star nailed to its door. It was the space reserved for Washington D.C. writer Dee Strasberg whenever she came to town. Which turned out to be twice a year, spring and fall, starting in 1951 until failing health kept her away. She transitioned in 2013 and asked for her ashes to be buried in the Inn’s courtyard. Between her yearly Taos sojourns Strasberg left her old heavy typewriter behind so housekeeping could set it up in room 102, with fresh flowers, a bottle of wine and candies, before her arrival. The iconoclastic writer penned many of her 70 plus Gothic Romance and Horror novels in room 102 under the pen name Daoma Winston. more

Elana Lombard and Christopher Pieper, the owners of Mudd N Flood Mountain Shop, discovered Taos twenty-three years ago and fell in love.  Soon after they quit their jobs as high school science teachers and made the move. In 2001 they bought Mudd N Flood Mountain Shop. “We lived in a teepee with our baby and toddler, built our straw bale house, and started a little organic farm.  Phew!  That was a big year!  Now we enjoy being both student and teacher: learning and keeping abreast of the latest developments in gear, clothing, and restorative agriculture, and sharing this knowledge with our community.  We are passionate about the outdoors and restoring the earth, and all the wonderful ways to explore it, through hiking, backpacking, gardening, skiing, river trips, rock climbing, snowshoeing, and much more. We are excited to share this love of the outdoors and help you to be better prepared and more comfortable on your next adventure.” more
Ask a guy, any guy who knows Overland Sheepskin Co., and he’ll veritably croon. Voted number one for Best Men’s Clothing Store in the 2020 Best of Taos poll, Overland is as much a man cave as it is a mecca of the highest quality treasures of leather and other signature-style products.  “We have lots of new men’s merchandise,” said Taos store manager Julie Leavenworth by phone May 8. “Beautiful mens’ cotton shirts, lots of new styles – madras, stripes and plaids as well as linens; real classics.

All Petree’s fans were itching to get into that 35-acre operation and see what Sylvia and Mike Petree and staff had worked on over the winter. more
