About Ron Winsor
I've lived in Taos for 35 years. Avid outdoorsmen, expert skier (private lessons and TSV mountain guiding available upon request), ultralight pilot, and am offering sunrise flights out over the Taos Gorge and Tres Piedras. Love to meet new people. The house I live in is close by, a few hundred yards away and I will be available for anything you might need during your stay.

The property is just incredible. The location is beautiful and the property is lovely. We are especially appreciative of the owner, Ron Winsor, who took the time to come check on us and visit. Highly recommended! The Walsh Sibling Reunion group.
Spring Break 2018
It’s away from everything....Quiet, Beautiful views. We loved it. Can’t wait to come back.
Pictures don't do it justice!
My family spent Thanksgiving at Winsor Castle and it was just perfect. The indoor plants were just amazing and there was plenty of space for all of us. The owner greeted us when we got there and was willing to help us if needed. We would love to stay there again!
Breathtaking views and lots of hummingbirds!
We had a wonderful time at Winsor Castle. We had everything we needed and loved the views, the atriums, and all of the beautiful flowers. We saw multiple hummingbirds everyday. The kids enjoyed picking veggies from the garden and cooking a yellow squash, zucchini, and jalapeño casserole all from the garden. We all slept well after all the hiking and rafting. Ron was a great host and told us about a hike in the area that was amazing. We will definitely be back!
Beautiful Adobe hits all the right notes.
We just finished staying at Ron's house and it was great. The house is beautiful with plants inside the house and beautiful outdoor space and views as well. Beds were comfortable. The whole house exceeded our expectations. We met Ron and he is a very nice man, very helpful and respectful. We hosted a dinner party for 15 one night and there was plenty of room for all and all were appreciative of the house. When we are back we will not hesitate to stay again.
Spacious retreat in a beautiful setting
My party (3 couples, 4 children, and 2 infants) stayed at Winsor Castle for two nights. The house is quite unique, with a large indoor greenhouse, a beautiful master suite with a tub boasting views of the mountains, and an encircling grass yard with tons of lovely porch seating. After exploring the house and running barefoot through the grass (a rare experience for us Albuquerque residents) my daughter told me "this is the best day of my life." The owner Ron was wonderful and attentive to our needs. This property was a perfect fit!
Within walking distance to Lobo Peak and many miles of hiking and biking trails. Trout fishing within a half mile in the Arroyo Hondo River. 1 close neighbor within 1/8 of a mile, the village of Valdez. VERY private residence, in upscale neighborhood/road. Great relationship with the locals for more than 20 years. You will have keys but we haven't locked a door on this road in 20 years. All wheel drive recomended for inexperienced winter drivers during ski season.
Local fruits and vegetables grown on property and available to eat when in season.
Valdez NM is 3 miles from Arroyo Seco on the way to Taos Ski Vally.
