Romantic 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Pullman Kitchen, Fabulous Views

Our little boxcar was built in 1898, and it rode the narrow gauge rails from southern New Mexico trying to reach Denver. Purchased from the Alamosa yard and moved to Pilar, NM, near Taos, Stephen used it to design passive solar systems when not building homes in Santa Fe. It became our place for romantic rendezvous before we built our family home. Today it is our guesthouse. During several stages of remodeling we have tried to keep an authentic narrow-gauge boxcar feel to the space.
We have added a Yodel gas stove, a Pullman kitchen with dining nook and closet, and most recently a bathroom with a very boxcar-esque sliding door. Our family members vie for the space when they are in town, and you can see why. It is so welcoming, and unique even for unique Taos. It isn't hard to imagine you are traveling the world on the historic Chili Line, even though there is wifi, a flat-screen TV, state-of-the-art lounging chairs for reading or TV viewing. The boxcar is powered by solar electric. For the weary traveler the queen bed is firm and comfortable. Bamboo rayon sheets add a touch of elegance to the boxcar charm. We use only nontoxic, 'green' household products throughout. The 40' flat screen TV can be viewed from the bed or the lounges. The couch is a 'Taos Bed', easily made up to sleep a third guest. The Pullman kitchen includes china and wine glasses, a two-burner electric stove, a small fridge, a sink and a toaster oven. Perhaps best of all, the 'slipper' tub invites leisurely baths or hand-held showers while viewing hundreds of acres of agricultural land, seasonally resplendent with coyotes, rabbits, soaring hawks, nesting magpies, and cows grazing and sometimes calving. Our property has a hot tub shared with the owner's, adjacent to the owner's home, which sits in a secluded, outdoor space, allowing the contemplation of sunrise, bird flight, cloud shift, stars and moon. Don one of the boxcar bathrobes and your flip flops and take a dip. Quiet, private and on a dead-end road, some call the boxcar a sanctuary. We are located in Ranchos de Taos, 3.5 miles from the Taos Plaza, and just 40 minutes from the Taos Ski Valley. Come experience a bit of old railroad lore while visiting our beloved Taos, New Mexico.

Funky & so fun

  • 5 von 5

Steve & Jean are the perfect hosts. They're there if you need them with great area information but they certainly don't hover. The Boxcar is the coolest place we've ever stayed thru VRBO. Compact in size with everything you need to enjoy Taos. We brought our two large dogs & there was still plenty of room. The private patio was our favorite spot the enjoy morning coffee or a nightcap. Thank you Ollie for being a gracious doggie host.

Wonderful stay at the Box Car

  • 5 von 5

My family of three had a wonderful stay at the box car. It was cozy, clean and just what we needed. Jean and Steve were amazing hosts, we had fresh eggs, muffins, juice, butter and water in the fridge to make our breakfast and wonderful homemade granola to make a yummy yogurt treat.

The bathroom was nice and big with a great soaking tub, the delicious smelling local hand made soaps were a bonus for me.

My 8 year old thought it was the coolest thing to live in a Box car, we told almost everyone in town and out about our stay and were very impressed with the hospitality.

Steve and Jean's box car has inspired us to take a step towards minimal living. There is nothing more we could have asked for from our stay.

Beautiful views

  • 5 von 5

The Boxcar owners were not present due to an emergency, but their daughter-in-law took great care of us and Jean kept in touch with us. The boxcar is very cute and we loved the special care they took in making it special for us. We are renovators and they did not skimp on anything. The location was great and is not far from town. It has a country feel to it and the view of mountains is awe

inspiring. We loved it and so did our dogs.

inspiring!

Boxcar Heaven

  • 5 von 5

We spent 3 nights at the Boxcar following 3 nights in a Studio in Albuquerque. The big difference- the boxcar has that lived-in and homey feel and includes everything you may ever need away from home!

So besides the charm of sleeping in an antique box car- COOL ENOUGH....you are treated to a very comfortable accomodation that includes: beautiful location and stunning views, close to town yet private, rural space, nice hot tub, sweet bath set up (it really couldn't get much better), small but user friendly kitchen, comfy lounger and long couch and a very high quality mattress. After 3 nights lacking sleep in Albq, we slept well and long in the box car.

To top it all off, Steve and Jean are the very best hosts you'll ever meet. We clicked and then shared a meal together. Thanks for everything; we'll keep in touch! Fondly, J & D, Massachusetts

Vermieter-Kommentar: It is especially fun to host guests who really know how to relax and enjoy the modest comforts of the boxcar. We had a good time getting to know these tall, well-spoken guests over a delicious bottle of wine they shared, and we learned much from their refined conservation-conscious lifestyle. Future hosts take note, they left the space beautifully organized and clean. What a pleasure! We look forward to seeing them again.

Loved the box car

  • 5 von 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Box car. Such a fun experience. Jean and Steve have done an amazing job restoring the space and making it super comfortable for a stay in Taos. It's outside of town but close enough that you can ride your bike or drive in quickly, or explore the wide range of activities in the area. Perfect place to enjoy all that Taos has to offer. We only wish we could have stayed longer.

Peaceful and quaint way to see Taos!

  • 5 von 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying in the Chile Line Boxcar. We skied Taos spent some time checking out the local shops, galleries and breweries. The owners, Jean and Steve, were very friendly, kind and helpful. And Jean had the most wonderful homemade granola and good coffee for breakfast - Thanks!! The boxcar is very clean and cozy. And the bed was firm and super comfortable. We slept extremely well - which was well deserved rest for us both. The boxcar is located a 5 or so minute drive from downtown Taos and it was so much nicer than staying in a hotel surrounded by heaps of other people. We also had access to relax in the hot tub under the stars. I loved enjoying the outside chairs near the BBQ and soaking up the sun after our ski day. There is a large flat screen TV, DVD player and WiFi access, and with our own HDMI cable we were able to watch netflix and even an international cricket match! Even though the boxcar size is petite, the extra additions of a kitchen and gorgeous bathroom make it very comfortable. We hope to return here with our daughter - she will love it too, I am sure. My husband is tall, 6'1" - and he fit just fine, However, if you are taller then 6'3", it could be a little short for you, it is a boxcar after all. We both definitely recommend the Chile Line Box car as a way for folks to enjoy a quiet, restful time in Taos,
