About the property

Main Cabin - 1 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8), Small Cabin, sleeps 2

A rare home in this market! Nestled beside the Carson National Forest in the Village of Taos Ski Valley with incredible views, a few steps to fly fishing the Rio Hondo, spacious accommodations. This is an authentic log cabin -- updated to provide comfort -- with an expansive upstairs loft, one outbuilding that holds a game room, a second studio outbuilding for quiet retreats (sleeps two) and complete mountainside privacy. Master bedroom with king bed, two queens and two twins in the upstairs loft, and two twins in the Small Cabin. Wifi, Wood-burning stove (worry not -- the home has central heat) -- full kitchen, and (of course!) a hot tub for relaxing after a day of enjoying your mountain resort experience.

Spread out in the pet-friendly main house, enjoy a movie on your DirectTV satellite service, or settle in for a Foosball challenge in the game room. Your secluded back porch holds the hot tub and offers among the most majestic mountain views on earth. The kids can take over the loft, play a movie or a round of scrabble while you unwind downstairs. The living room offers lounging comfort and more views. Washer and dryer located on the main floor, and full amenities make an extended stay inviting. This home is available for a two night minimum, and long-term guests are also welcomed at affordable rates.

Venturing out into the world of this all-season mountain resort is also a pleasure from here. At the entrance to the resort, you have easy access to a full array of shops and restaurants. Enjoy fine dining at the Bavarian, St. Bernard or Edelweiss or, sink your teeth into to the famous burgers and green chile stew at the Stray Dog. Taos is known not to mention world class skiing, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking and snowshoeing.

Your stay begins even before you arrive, in the hands of professional, on-site management. You will have contact information giving you access to immediate attention, 24/7, from a caretaker located close by.

Please call or email your reservation today -- this home rents early for most major holidays, festivals and events because of its size. And we are ready to answer any questions, or just chat about the home, at any time.

Cost home, not big but feels spacious.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed being together in Ridgerunner Lodge. Two of the adults camped out in the ‘chalet.’ Having two bathrooms, one up, one down, was good.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house is great for a family, with space for the kids to be upstairs and adults to be downstairs or on the deck. I'd find it difficult to have too many guests (we had just 2 kids with us), especially if you wanted privacy. The whole house is open except for the master, and the hot tub is off that room - so you do hear everything going on. There are 2 queens upstairs, and the master is a king. The game "cabin" is available, and is the smaller "cabin" - with one twin bed. It'd be good if you wanted some quiet time to read peacefully, but I wouldn't want my kid to sleep there alone - I think it'd be scary for them. Nonetheless, it's a nice little nook. There were plenty of towels and kitchen necessities, and it was very clean and well stocked. We spent a lot of time at the kitchen table, with the windows looking over the trees and deck. Be sure to take some umbrella type chairs with you to enjoy the deck. Unfortunately, because of the extended lack of rain, the Carson was closed to us, however, I am positive when it comes back to life with some constant rain, the trees will be brilliant. The Hondo is directly across the street, and you can hear it all day and night. We saw plenty of deer, birds, and even a baby bear cub on the property (glad I didn't see the mama!). It's very close to the resort, which is beautiful. The only negative I had, and this is to be expected in a house in the woods where you sleep with the windows open (no screens) is that the bugs were your constant companion. I don't mind june bugs or moths, or even spiders, but I didn't like the gigantic ants. My 9YO and I just had to pretend that they didn't exist. Lastly, when you travel between Taos and the cabin, there's a great little community called Arroyo Seco and it's is lovely! The people are kind, the art and food is wonderful, and it's a quirky little place to wander around. There's two large grocery stores in town, about a 20+ minute drive. We did have wifi available (thanks, John!), but cell service was pretty much null. I had some service, my husband had none, and we are both on Sprint. Apparently, Taos (proper) and Sprint are not friends. We appreciated that we were felt welcomed in the house, and really loved our time unwinding and appreciating all the beauty.

Enjoy your stay - we did!

It was a great weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was nice. Kids loved it. The water pressure was not the best as others mentioned but still enough to get clean. Wish we could have stayed longer. I bet it is amazing in winter. Owner/property manager was easy to work with. A downfall is not a whole lot to do in summer at the ski lodge so we drove to Red River and Eagles Nest which was still a good drive. But that was poor planning on my part. I would love to stay there again. We over packed stuff and they had almost everything we needed.
