Experience the ultimate in eco-friendly sustainable living! This ingenious home is luxuriously off-the-grid, with solar power, water harvesting, integrated greenhouse & expansive glass offering views of mountains & star filled nights. But, it's not for everyone! If you need thermostat-control, 20min showers, fast internet, or watch TV for hours, look elsewhere. But if you get in tune with natural cycles, are happy using vents to maintain temperature & are into low-impact living, you'll love it!

The space
Our Earthship, built in 2013, is off-the-grid, meaning all electricity and heating/cooling are solar powered. Water is harvested from rainfall, and used multiple times after domestic use including watering plants in the beautiful integrated greenhouse. The ample New Mexico sun even creates the heat for hot water. The house was constructed with mostly recycled and natural materials, including tires and recycled glass. Everything was lovingly handcrafted and artistic touches abound.

You'll find all the comforts of a modern home, but you need to be conservative in your use of water and electricity. It's much easier to be mindful of resource use and in tune with nature with the expansive views -- you'll see sunrises, sunsets, starry skies, and can watch weather move across the mesa with long range views to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

Our guests are amazed at how easy and rewarding it is to experience an earth-sheltered natural home and enjoy learning how to help the house perform at its best :) You maintain comfortable temperatures by opening and closing vents, windows and doors - participation is a must!

Guest access
You will have the entire Earthship to yourself. We also have an outdoor table and chairs and a fire pit next to the house. The Earthship is located about 10 miles from Taos and about 2 miles from the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. There are numerous year-round trails along the rim of the gorge that start at the trail head in the Gorge Bridge parking lot.
In the winter, head out to Taos Ski Valley (25 miles), or Angel Fire (40 miles) for great powder days without the crowds. In the summer go hiking to escape the heat at the beautiful trails of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains and Taos Ski Valley or in the Rio Grande Gorge National Monument where you can also go on whitewater rafting adventures. And of course there are hot springs!

Other things to note
Depending on your provider cell phone service may not be reliable at the Earthship.

Our earthship is situated on the Taos Mesa with stunning views of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. Here and there in the vicinity you'll see the rounded berms and stove pipes of our earthship neighbors. If peace, quiet and beautiful surroundings of the high desert are what you like, this is a great place to be any time of year!
