About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Breathtakingly beautiful. One look at the spectacular mountain views and you'll be transported into the best of Taos living. Whether you plan to enjoy the recreation of Taos Mountain or the unique shops and dining on the plaza. This is the place to unwind and relax. Southwest elegance. There is really no other way to describe this private Taos home. You will receive an authentic Southwest mountain experience with 3 kiva fireplaces and soaring 12 foot authentic viga beamed ceilings; all professionally decorated in New Mexico-themed decor. This home also features a covered 800 ft. outdoor living space with incredible views, outdoor grilling and kiva fireplace; all next to a large outdoor hot tub. Without a doubt you will know you are in a Southwest mountain retreat but also surrounded by elegant luxury. From stainless steel kitchen appliances to original art curated from local Santa Fe artists, you'll quickly realize this is no ordinary mountain home. You'll love the private master suite with yet another kiva fireplace and en suite master bathroom. There are also two additional spacious yet comfortable bedrooms; one featuring a queen bed and the other with two twin beds; all which offer high thread count natural fiber linens and an additional full bath for family and friends. Stay connected with free satellite TV and high speed internet available throughout the home. But we won't be surprised if you arrive and suddenly decide to keep your phone and laptop out of sight. Even though you could stay at the retreat your entire vacation, you would really be missing out on everything Taos has to offer. It's a X-minute drive into the heart of town where you'll find fantastic restaurants and shopping. Or enjoy year-round mountain recreation;either hiking and biking in the summer or skiing and boarding in the winter. And just remember you'll have a hot tub with mountain views waiting for you when you return home. Whatever you choose to do on vacation this home has everything you could possible want. There really is no better place to retreat from the busyness of life. We believe when you stay, you just might not want to leave. Welcome to your Taos Retreat!

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and everything was perfect. The kitchen is the best equipped kitchen of any rental house I've ever stayed in. There was also plenty of extra linens, towels for the hot tub, and wood for the fireplaces. The views were awesome in every direction. This is a perfect place to stay and I'm sure we'll be back.

We love this house

  • 5 of 5

We came back to this home again after a great experience the first time. The kitchen upgrade is fantastic and I could not ask for more to prepare Christmas dinner for pots, pans and appliances. This feels like our home away from home.

We really appreciate the lack of clutter, attention to details, linens and our kids love the backyard and hot tub that was crystal clean again.

We will be back here on our next ski trip.

Perfect location, close to everything Taos has to offer.

Comfortable home with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This truly felt like a home away from home while we were in Taos. The living room and master bedroom were comfortable and inviting. (There were only two of us, but with two guest bedrooms and a futon this house could easily sleep 8-10 people.) The patio was huge; the perfect spot to enjoy coffee in the morning, overlooking the gorgeous landscaping in the backyard and the beautiful view of the mountains. The patio also had an outdoor fireplace, which was perfect for the chilly October evenings. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Nice accomodation and great location

  • 4 of 5

At first we thought we had been taken. The door bell was hanging loose by the wires and the curtains looked sad and faded plus we could not find a lock box.

We double checked that we had the correct address and tried again and then we found the lock box in the galvanized watering tank that was the planter.

We walked in and took a sigh of relief. The place was very nice. The curtains we saw by the entry faced south and needed to be closed all the time - thus the faded look from the outside.

The wifi and television system was easy to figure out. The furniture was comfortable. There was no air conditioning, but at night we opened some screened windows and they had fans available in just about every room and it was really comfortable. And oh my, the view from the covered patio was beautiful. And they had a great table out there plus a little sitting area. We spent mornings out there having our breakfast and after hiking and fishing we would take a break and sit out there. It was lovely. The hot tub was nice and in great shape. They could have used a much smaller grill - it was charcoal, but so large that it was ineffective for just a couple people. The beds were very comfortable. They could have had better pillows - king size, flat and hard. But fortunately we drove so we had a couple good pillows with us.

We loved the location as we were mainly hiking and fishing north of Taos - it was easy to get the Rio Grand Gorge, Questa or Red River or the Ski Valley from there.... you didn't have to wind through the heavy traffic in town. Also the laundry facility was very nice. And since we cooked a couple meals a day there -- I will mention that the huge knives they had were veeerrrry dull and there was no small knife - so I ended up buying a set to use that I took home. But they had everything else in the kitchen that you might need and some condiments - so that was great and the kitchen appliances were great. I loved the microwave drawer as I had one in our old house and miss it.

If we came back to Taos we would rent this place again.
