1967 Avion Tourist (Louise)

 


A cleaning fee of $10 is added to each reservation
 Louise and her sister Thelma hail from the Texas Gulf – you might be surprised to find that sandy shores and salty waves were in their blood way before they ever knew of sagebrush and mountains. In her teenage years Louise had a penchant for flirting with bronzed lifeguards and sun-kissed surfer dudes, sneaking down to the beach with them after dark and getting sand in all her rivets. After years of chasing love up and down the shore, and plenty of broken hearts, her sister Thelma had a crazy idea – “Let’s retreat to the mountains. Let’s test our own strength, discover who we really are, and find a place where we truly belong!” So off they went, in search of happiness, community, and connection. They diverted from the shore into the heart of America, taking the scenic route across midwestern plains before veering west towards the Rocky Mountains. After a stint at a hippie commune in central Colorado, Thelma and Louise felt a magnetic pull further south and finally rolled up to Luna Mystica, where they instantly knew they would stay forever. Louise feels seen and free to be her fun-loving self among our diverse group of tin cans in all shapes, sizes, and walks of life. Hosting girly slumber parties is her calling, and any night that she can sip rosé as the sun goes down feels like the best night of her life. Louise’s perch on the eastern corner of our mesa offers her guests a secluded feel and an uninterrupted view of the Sangre de Cristos. Plus the view of that hunk Spartacus across the site isn’t bad either 😉Photos by our resident photographer, Amanda Powell. Check out her portfolio at www.adriftadream.photography! Read more...

1954 Spartan Imperial Mansion (Spartacus)

Legend has it that Spartacus was once the notorious leader in Europe’s underground spice trade. Traveling purely by railcar, Spartacus would hop country to country, smuggling forbidden spices and herbs for his clients in the very top of the elite class. After years of successfully smuggling goods under the radar, Spartacus had built an empire in the spice trade industry that connected all corners of the globe. Then, as if by an act of a greater power, Spartacus and his elusive empire vanished without a trace. That was until we found him in the middle of nowhere atop a hillside in Bastrop, Texas. There he had spent years on high ground overlooking the Colorado River, hiding from the international authorities and any rival smugglers that he might have crossed in his previous life. Since then, Spartacus has found a new purpose in life and decided to join our motley crew of vintage trailers on mesa. Although his life isn’t filled with the excitement it used to be, he’s happy spending his days accommodating families and friends in search of a unique lodging experience. With a queen bed, pull-out couch, jacuzzi bathtub, and classy décor, Spartacus is the perfect trailer for anyone looking to spice up their true Taos experience.Thanks to Kelsey Ann Rose for contributing to Spartacus’ gallery!

1960 Southern Pacific Railroad Airstream (Apollo)


A cleaning fee of $10 is added to each reservation
Greetings earthlings,Greetings earthlings. I am Apollo, the son of spacecraft Apollo 11’s Airstream quarantine facility. After the lunar landing in 1969, NASA responded to the threat of potential moon diseases and pathogens by quarantining the astronauts post-landing. One of these holding sites was none other than our Apollo’s father, a 35’ Airstream trailer. Modified with advanced air filtration and human waste containment systems, Apollo’s old man kept our space travelers company while they waited out the spread of potential moon germs. Our newest addition is also a 35’ Airstream, and he grew up with his rivets in the stars. He dreamed of space exploration, of joining NASA not only as a quarantine facility but as part of the Apollo spacecraft itself. So it was to his dismay that right off the assembly line Apollo was given rails, not rockets, and tossed into service under the Southern Pacific Railroad. He worked the railways, providing accommodation for their employees with his fellow trailer comrades. He could never stop dreaming of the stars, and his sense of purpose was crushed — leaving him in a deep state of depression. In 1989, Southern Pacific sold off the Airstream fleet, disbanding the rail comrades and leaving Apollo in a suburb of Texas for decades. By the time we discovered him, he was gutted, left only with a cabin full of broken dreams. We brought him to Luna Mystica, polished the years of railroad silt right off of him, and gave him a makeover true to his roots. We are happy to introduce our very own spaceship, happily offering HLM lunar landings and star filled missions at his launch site in Taos, NM 🚀  Read more...

1969 Terry Trailer (Terry)


A cleaning fee of $10 is added to each reservation
Meet Terry. Hailing from the high roads of Colorado, our Terry recently decided to ditch the Rocky Mountain crowds and nestle down in Taos. Terry was donated by our friends Kathleen and Greg when he expressed his desire to leave the traveling trailer life behind and rest his wheels in peace. It was becoming clear he could no longer compete with all the hip new converted vans criss-crossing America, so he decided to raise his flag and take on a more sedentary life in his golden years. We are happy to have Terry and his Colorado roots holding down our western corner, offering him and his guests the best sunset views at HLM. Steadfast and virtuous, sometimes extraordinarily blunt, Terry will yell at unwanted visitors poaching our shower house and tends to make inappropriate jokes about the year he was born. Don’t listen to what he tells you, it’s still not legal in New Mexico. He’s passionate about craft beer, naturally, so make sure you pour the last few sips out for him! Read more...

1957 Spartan Imperial Mansion (THE SANDS)

Cleaning fee is not added to The Sands reservations, it will display at checkout but will not be charged.


Meet Sandy.  Raised on the open plains of Oklahoma, she is a Midwestern girl through and through.  Due to her large stature, growing up she didn’t get to travel much and, like most Midwest beauts, she dreamed of California.  Palm Springs to be exact.  Laughing it up with the likes of Marilyn, Frank and Dean, sloshing down Mai Tais and working on her copper tan. Like all starlets-to-be, one day she reached her end, proclaimed “I’m a big girl with long lines and its time the world gets to love me!”, left the ranch and hit the road.  With a happy heart and big dreams she crossed the country and took in all the sights, sounds and smells it had to offer.  But, while crossing New Mexico, she fell in love.  Enchanted, she made camp, and here the Spirit of Taos spoke to her.  She knew she was entrapped.  Life is about choices and sometimes it throws you an unexpected curve you never saw coming.  As a gesture of kindness the guys brought a taste of Palm Springs to this fun-loving lady.  Southern Cali meets the mountain life – maybe you can have it all! No, she never made it to that west coast party; she simply became the party and now the world comes to her.  So come alone, come with friends, but come ready for a good time and let Sandy show you the way!  Until you stay the night with her though she insists on being referred to as The Sands.  A girl’s gotta have her standards 😉 Thank you to our guests Bridget (@bridgetrburnett) and Kelsey (@poppyandco_)for contributing to Sandy’s photo gallery!
