Why Beverly Rains chose Ranchos de Taos
As kids going on vacations with our families, we each fell in love with New Mexico. We even spent our honeymoon in Santa Fe. 5 kids and 29 years later we spent 2 weeks (alone!) exploring the Taos area. In the most brilliant idea we've ever had, we decided to look for a second home here. We were sold on this property before we even stepped inside! The location is beautiful with mountains close and our very own river running past. The air smells wonderful! We absolutely love this house. It is more fun than any house we've ever been in. It is more relaxing and peaceful than any place we've ever been.
What makes this House unique
Location, location, location. You are close to Taos, yet you feel like you are off in the mountains alone. Since we regularly stay at Casa Santos, the house is well equipped for your convenience and well decorated for your pleasure.

NM lodging tax is added to rental charges
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Wonderful Taos Home
Spent three nights at property. Owner was easy to communicate with and property was as described. The house is very unique and has great Southwestern charm. We enjoyed our stay!
Fantastic Home & Great Location!
This is a fantastic home and in a great location! Very close to Taos and Sipapu Ski Resort.
The house is very nice and well kept. The backyard is fantastic with a fire pit and hot tub.
The owners of the home are also fantastic with communication. I highly recommend this home. We will be back!
Great place. Plenty of space for 7!!
We loved the house!! A good place for all 7 people!!
A few notes, no bathroom upstairs, we had to watch not using TOO much hot water at once, and had to be extra careful with my 4 year olds around the heaters. But, we had a great time and loved the home!! It was very comfortable for skiiers with the entry way for our wet gear! Everything we needed was there and more!! We will certianly try to stay here again!!
What an AMAZING house.
We wil definitely be back.
Great place to stay!
Beverly has a beautiful home that is always clean and fully equipped for a great stay. We have stayed here for the past three years and look forward to coming back next year.
We enjoyed the location and the beautiful surroundings. The house was clean and functional and we would definitely go back. We enjoyed the hot tub, the fire pit, the walking trails, the forest roads for our off road vehicle, and the kitchen was ready to use.
This unique home is perfectly located for mountain activities. Forest roads give easy access to hiking and biking trails in the summer. In the winter, you can enjoy cross country skiing, sledding and snowshoeing or ski at Sipapu (20 min drive), Taos Ski Valley(45 min drive) or Angel Fire(45 min drive). The house is 10 minutes from the intersection of HWY 518 and HWY 68 so it is an easy drive into either Taos or Ranchos de Taos for shopping and sightseeing. You'll enjoy exploring art galleries, shops, museums and restaurants. The Rio Grande Gorge Bridge offers a bird's eye view of the river far below--but hold the railing if you are afraid of heights! Local companies offer hot air balloon rides and rafting trips along the Rio Grande. Plan on visiting the Taos Pueblo, a World Heritage Site. Casa Santos is located on the scenic high road between Santa Fe and Taos. You will be thrilled by the magnificent vistas unfolding before you as you take this drive. You'll want to stop at the historic adobe churches along the way and you must stop to visit the Sanctuario de Chimayo in Chimayo. Chimayo is also a perfect stop for lunch at the Ranchos de Chimayo Restaurante. When you return to the house after a day full of fun, you can relax on the patio with your favorite beverage and take in the beautiful scenery and fresh air. The little river running behind the house gives you the opportunity to fish or simply sit on the bridge and watch the water flow. Relaxation and peace may be the most wonderful opportunities this home offers.
