About The Owner

We love the New Mexico outdoors, and skiing is our family activity in the winter.

Why The Owner chose Taos Ski Valley

The Village of Taos Ski Valley is a friendly mountain community that combines the best of American western wilderness with Austrian ski resort, with incredible access to winter and summer wilderness. This location is close to the center of the Village, with easy access to ski trails, yet in a very quiet and private setting away from ski valley traffic. Being directly across from the charming Rio Hondo creek offers year-round sounds of a mountain stream.

What makes this house unique

Taos Ski Valley is the premier ski destination in the west if you appreciate great snow, varied terrain including incredible steeps, while being immersed in the deep blue sunny skies of New Mexico. For the visitors who love art but not skiing, Taos and the nearby village of Arroyo Seco offer galleries and the historic Taos culture that seem a continent apart from the Austrian alpine setting of the ski valley, yet are only a short drive down the valley.

Beautiful home with everything you need for an amazing stay in the Taos Ski Valley

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location up Twining in TSV. The driveway is a bit steep and at a sharp angle but otherwise the parking pad is of a great size. The house is in great condition and beautifully decorated and designed. The kitchen is great for cooking full meals for the family. There is one queen bedroom with full bath downstairs on the entry level where there is a laundry room. Next level up is the beautiful kitchen and living room with fireplace and huge outdoor deck with sounds of the upper Rio Hondo which is just a stones throw away. There is another queen bedroom on this level with access to the deck and just outside this bedroom is the largest full bathroom which is beautiful and functional. Upstairs loft has a double bunk bed, an adjacent twin bed with trundle and a small offshoot room with a double or maybe a queen bed with a small curtain to separate from the main lift space. There is also a full bathroom. All of the spaces are perfectly executed.

We had one small issue where the hot water went out, but the owner answered our phone call immediately and told us how to do a quick resent of the heater and it was back working immediately.

Overall, we will try to stay here every time we come to TSV, it was that amazing!

Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us!

Beautiful property with great views

  • 5 of 5

The owners have a wonderful property and they have thought of so many things to make it a wonderful stay. The kitchen had everything we needed to prep meals. The cabin was very cozy feeling and beautifully appointed. We did not miss TV but did watch a family movie one night. Since we had kids that were new skiers, we did not try to hike over to Pioneer for more of a ski in/ ski out experience. We were very close to everything we needed. We loved our stay and would definitely plan to come back again!

Great home for a group of people

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable home for a gathering of friends/family. We were there during a huge snow storm and could not get out of the very steep driveway by car until it was plowed, which was not until the evening. Luckily the home is close enough the the ski area that we could walk.

Only good things to say

  • 5 of 5

This well-designed home was a perfect fit for our family of seven. The layout could not have been better, everything was in fine working order and the kitchen was well stocked with condiments, cleaning supplies etc. The slopes are just a short walk away, and town is within walking distance as well. Our AT&T wireless signal was strong. We hope to come back soon.

Mountain Luxury

  • 5 of 5

House was beautiful with all the comforts of home! Everything from the bath towels to the high-efficiency fireplace was top notch. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could need for cooking for a crowd. Plenty of beds- 4 queens (2 are bunked), a trundle twin, and a full. Easy walk to the slopes. The base area bars/restaurants are walkable from the house (if you don't mind a little longer walk). No internet or cable in the house as advertised, spotty 3g signal for Verizon. Definitely need 4WD in the winter for the driveway.
