Located in the historic, picturesque village of Arroyo Seco, NM, we invite you to relax in our historic adobe home. Newly remodeled, Casa Martinez's modern amenities blend with original hard wood floors and thick adobe walls to create a feeling of home.
Just 15 minutes north of Taos, south of Taos Ski Valley, and east of the Rio Grande Gorge, Casa Martinez is perfectly located for the outdoor adventurist, art enthusiast, historian, or those who want to get away from it all.
Over 100 years ago, Leandro Martinez and his bride, Juanita, built the first room of what is now Casa Martinez. One adobe brick at a time, my grandparents created a home for their family. If you close your eyes, you just might feel as though you’re back in that long-ago day....you might hear the chatter of the hens and the baa of the sheep, or smell the newly turned soil in the garden or the apples stored in the shed.
As years went by, the second floor was removed - look closely at the ceiling in the dining room for a seam where the stairs use to be. When the house went to my father (it was custom for the house to go to the youngest son), my parents added on what is now the kitchen, bathrooms, and master bedroom.
Now I, as youngest son, have inherited this beautiful piece of history. I am happy to welcome you to Casa Martinez. I hope you feel the love that has lived within these walls for generations. I hope you will take time to breathe deeply of the fresh air, listen to the quiet, and gaze at the millions of stars in the night sky. And I hope you will return to visit us again, any time you need to recharge your batteries.
Guests have full access to the entire home and one acre of land. Enjoy a good book on the porch, a stroll along the stream, and apples fresh off the tree. Look for buffalo across the road on Taos Pueblo land.

THE OWNER: My name is David Martinez. I was lucky enough to grow up right here, in the house now known as Casa Martinez, which was built by my grandfather over 100 years ago. I walked just down the road to attend elementary school, played baseball in Taos, and learned to ski just up the mountain at Taos Ski Valley. I am happy to welcome you to Casa Martinez.
THE MANAGERS: My brother and his wife, Leroy & Alyssa Martinez, are happily raising their family (and a few chickens) in Arroyo Seco. Leroy is a teacher on the Taos Pueblo and Alyssa works with the special education department of various schools in the community. They lovingly prepare Casa Martinez for each guest and maintain the grounds. During the winter, you may see Leroy on his tractor plowing the driveway. Other than that, they leave you to your privacy.
