About Lynne Greene

We bought our property in 2004. Over the past 14 years, we have reestablished the natural wetlands. We completed construction on our 'green' home in July of 2014. We plan to retire to Taos someday. Meanwhile, Dieter, a Master Chef, and Lynne, a Psychologist working with seniors, are in the San Francisco Bay area.

Why Lynne Greene chose Ranchos de Taos

Taos is magical and unique. There is everything and nothing to do there. You can while away your days watching the sky and clouds. Or there is shopping, excellent food, world class art, music, theater...and then there is the outdoors. The history of Taos is like nowhere else in the U.S. The backdrop of Taos Mt and the Pueblo enhance the mystique and power of this beautiful place.

What makes this house unique

Our home is surrounded by pastures on all sides while only ten minutes to Taos downtown plaza. Our home was built with the love of natural local artisans and craftsmenship. It has been furnished to create a warm, relaxing family vacation home.

Our stunning location and natural wetlands attract birds and animals - being in the valley and green while part of the desert surroundings is ideal.

We had an absolutely magical stay! Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I travel to Taos a couple times a year and we always chose someplace new or different to stay. Without hesitation, I can say that your home was absolutely magical and just what we needed and the best HomeAway experience we have had to date.

Your home was appointed with all the perfect items to make us feel at ease and at home. The kitchen was spectacular and the open design of the common area was welcoming. We so enjoyed our time, just relaxing and looking over the spring-fed pond.

Thank you so much for opening your home to us. It is exactly the way we would want our home built in Taos.

A gorgeous house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were two families, seven people in total, and we enjoyed staying in this house tremendously. Spacious, very well taken care of, fully equipped with everything. Beautifully furnished, nice artwork, and an incredible kitchen (only the knifes could profit from some sharpening ..:-)). This is a perfect house for large families or groups up to 8 people or so. We loved it and would definitely come back again.

Beautiful & Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Lovely tasteful home with great views. Pond wasn't swimmer friendly due to drought. Pond still attracts wildlife.

Many happy returns

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to the Taos House was just as enjoyable as the first. We stayed a little longer this time to be able to do more in the area. This time we got in a little fly-fishing and rafting as well as hiking to Williams Lake. The Taos House made for a serene base. Yet, as absolutely lovely and comfortable as the interior of the home is, I spent as much time as possible outside on the deck, contemplating the pond and the mountains. I couldn't get enough of that view. Even though it's a trek from Atlanta, Georgia, I hope to return again. Thank you for opening your home to us..

We had a wonderful stay at your beautiful home the master suite was very private half a mile away from other rooms ha ha that's how big the house seems the steam shower was far my favorite took two showers a day😀? The hot tiub with the most beautiful view. Perfect to be honest I spent most of our time on the deck watching the beaver family swim across the pond and the sunset awsome we enjoyed everything the dry sauna hit the spot and can't forget the beautiful cows grazing in the morning. And best food in the world was at the abiquiu inn thank you so much we will be back. And your host was awesome
