Guestbook comments from the owner

I always enjoy people like Kelly and her party and am glad I'm on hand to fill in any gaps. I very much respect my guests' privacy but I like them to know I'm here if they need anything or have any questions. The bottom line: A good experience for the people who choose to stay here! Anything I can do towards that is my goal.

Ideal location, adorable cabin, dog friendly. Everything you could need is supplied, which was awesome- coffee filters, tin foil, laundry detergent- all there! Holly is genuinely nice and truly wants you to enjoy your stay, which made it that much better. We 100% would recommend this property and hope to stay again in the future. We had three adults, a 7 month old, and 2 dogs and it was the perfect space for us!

Owner's Response: It's always nice to have guests like these guys--we exchanged a few emails after they booked and hopefully, they felt comfortable by the time they got here. They left the place in wonderful shape and I'd love to have them back any time!

Clean, cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay with Holly and will continue coming back for our annual trip to Taos. The cabin is clean, cozy and has everything you need. We love having a hot tub to ourselves. It's close to the ski area. I love having a washer and dryer to throw in our wet, dirty clothes after a day on the mountain and Holly has all the kitchen, bathroom esstentials. 5 stars! Great place to stay.

Owner's Response: I have a soft spot for guests who become regulars--they're always the kind that leave things as good or better than they found them and I know they like the place else they wouldn't be back. (It takes a lot of anxiety out of renting--I have a personal stake in providing a comfortable place for my guests.) This family is no exception--beautiful, kind, no-maintenance and easy-going. These kinds of people I'd love to have as often as they'd come.

All it was advertised to be.

  • 5 of 5

Holly has made sure it is equipped with all you need and is willing to do whatever to make your stay enjoyable. You know she is available but is only visible if needed, she doesn't interrupt your space. Great place for some much needed R and R.

3 days in heaven

  • 5 of 5

Following a death in the family we were looking for a place of peace to “lick our wounds”. We had to find a place that would be tranquil, allow us to take our Labrador Retriever, and give us a soft spot to land. ” After days of prayer and hours on the internet, we found Hollywood in Taos Ski Valley. Boy oh boy, were the gods ever smiling on us that day.

We heard back from Holly, the owner, within hours and the die was cast. Once we arrived and opened the door to the cabin, we realized this was a place of peace and perfection.

Holly had left keys, a welcome note, and notes with very helpful instructions. Hollywood is absolutely the cleanest, most well supplied cabin we’ve ever seen. Holly has equipped the cabin with more utensils and “life items” than I have in my home!! There were movies, washer and drier, microwave, extra blankets, extra pillows, linens…she has it all. Holly’s attention to detail in making sure your stay is pure bliss is beyond reproach. She didn’t miss a trick.

We cannot find the words to express all of the superlatives that are truly required in describing this cabin, our stay, and our hostess.

We will close this with the highest of recommendations possible with the small clause of hating to do so, as we would love to keep this slice of heaven all for ourselves.

Thank you HomeAway and thank you Holly Burger.

Owner's Response: I think I usually have the best people who stay in Hollywood. This couple was no exception and they took care of the place as well or better than I do. I always appreciate knowing what my guests are looking for in a vacation (some inquiries I've referred to town when I realize they're looking for more activity--I know several people who have properties listed in the town of Taos with HomeAway) and this place is quiet and private. I felt from our exchange of emails that this was a place they could lay low and take some down time after what they'd been through...and it's a great place for dogs (hiking trails and a shallow creek within yards). Nothing could please me more than reading this review and knowing they found what they needed here--they were truly amazing guests. Renting is a bit of match-making to me and I greatly appreciate potential guests' communication in what they want in their time away from (mostly) stressful lives. In this case, it was a match made in heaven. Thank you for the beautiful review!

Great, relaxing stay - So close to Taos Ski Valley!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at the "Hollywood Hotel". It was wonderfully eclectic and very comfortable. Had everything we needed and more. The hot tub was a plus. It was nice to be so close to Taos Ski Valley- Holly even did a good job providing some decent snow for nice, spring skiing :)

We would definitely stay again!
