About Page Patterson

My husband Doug and I met in Taos in 1994. I was a potter and he had just graduated from Architecture School in Cincinnati. We built an Earthship, had babies, I began Taos Clay (a community Clay Studio) and Doug joined Living Designs Group Architects. My Daughter and I rode horses together for many years, now both of our children, Emma and Jon Clay, compete on skis in Big Mountain Freeride and Slopestyle Freeride. We all spend a good part of the winter traveling to ski areas around the country and even to Canada this past season. We raft and climb and trail run in the warmer months, and sometimes even in the colder months too.

Page Patterson purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Page Patterson chose Taos

We bought this property because it is one of the most beautiful downtown historic properties in Taos. A two story, territorial hacienda with a fountain in the courtyard where there was once a community well. Rumor says it was at one time a brothel with tunnels running below it during prohibition. Mixed use: there is a thriving restaurant downstairs and an Architecture office upstairs, creating a property that is used so many hours of each day. Hollyhocks dorn the courtyard throughout the summer and tulips and daffodils line the walkways in the spring.

What makes this apartment unique

Besdies the excellent location, this place has sweet furnishings! Italian leather furniture, high end rugs, french press, coffee, half and half and a bottle of wine. This is our guest house so why not spend a little more and furnish how I would like our own house to be furnished? So I did: High thread count, 100% cotton linens, king size organic mattress, Ralph Lauren duvet covers and lovely, insulating blinds through which the light gently passes.

A gem in Taos

  • 5 of 5

The place was awesome! Great location near the plaza. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. Everything you need to make a vacation enjoyable the Architect's Space has it. Page kept in touch throughout our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. We loved listening to the church bells near by. Plenty of very comfortable space for all with free parking. We will definitely be back.

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

You won't want to leave this lovely cozy apartment. It's creative design and decorating from modern to traditional is comforting and makes you feel at home. This apartment was designed with much love from ceilings to the floors and the walls to the doors/ window frames. We were surprised to see paper towels and TP, spices, and an abundance of towels and bedding. There are plenty of blankets and we found a floor heater...perfect for Floridians who can't handle a little cool weather. Perfectly located, and walking distance to the downtown plaza. We Loved It!

Beautiful property, well appointed, great location!

  • 3 of 5

The property has fine amenities - location, furnishings, appliances, air conditioning, and parking. However, we experienced a major communication failure with the owner. Our confirmation email stated, “I will be in contact with you prior to your arrival with access instructions.” None came and we were unable to enter the rental. Property website instructions did not apply. After 3 hours of unanswered calls, emails, and texts to the owner, we confirmed hotel rooms, thinking we were victims of a scam (we paid in advance as contract required). Finally, the owner, an experienced Taos realtor, called with access instructions. Homeaway clients must be able to rely on dependable communication.

Owner's Response: I put every effort into communicating with my guests- but please understand it's a two way street. It is i or the guest that initiates communication with in a few days of arrival. Fortunately this communication error actually lasted 35 minutes - which can seem like a very long time in such a situation. Guests ended up enjoying the property and had excellent suggestions about how to improve. Please reach out to me a day or two before arrival and I will do the same.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My mom, uncle and I were visiting Taos for a wedding and found this great place. It was spacious, cozy and felt like home versus a small hotel room. The location was perfect and the servers from the restaurant below were even sweet enough to offer to bring us coffee. I stayed in the main bedroom with the kind and the bed was topped with a Tempurpedic mattress pad and it was super cozy. Page was very communicative and even though we forgot to leave the parking pass when we departed, she was very gracious. Moral of the story, STAY HERE but don't forget to leave the parking pass for the next guests!!

We love coming to Taos NM we have stayed in Taos for five years, the last two years we have stayed with Page. It is 1400 sq feet of living space , and if your from Texas you will enjoy the air conditioner , makes your trip so much better. Page has an amazing place here, just bring your luggage and enjoy all.

Beautifully renovated property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Architect's Space. The property is beautifully renovated and decorated. The location could not be better. We enjoyed walking to Taos Plaza and to the many galleries, shops and restaurants.
