Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Arroyo Seco - Des Montes area- 1/2 mile to Village of Arroyo Seco, 10 miles to Taos Ski Valley, 7 miles to town of Taos

Alto Vallecito - a contemporary custom home on 1.4 acres with expansive unobstructed views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, including its' namesake Vallecito Mountain (12,643’). Conveniently located halfway between the town of Taos and world-famous Taos Ski Valley with a unique design interpretation of “Taos Architecture,” blending a pueblo-style flat roof with a pitched roof creating grand cathedral ceilings in the great room and master bedroom.

The floor plan is ideally suited for 2 couples (with bedrooms/baths on opposite ends of the house) or a single family with children. The kitchen and living/dining areas are essentially one big space made cozy with a wood-burning stove and takes advantage of the grand mountain views via large picture windows. The home is lovingly stocked by the owners with books, movies, entertainment system, a gourmet kitchen, lead crystal wine glasses, and high quality linens/towels. Enjoy a drink and mountain views from the brand new outdoor hot tub after taking a short walk to the cute village of Arroyo Seco just 1/2 mile away.

"A regional contemporary hybrid of two common Taos styles, the design blends flat roof and territorial pitches to create a truly unique interpretation of Taos Architecture. The home is positioned to take advantage of the panoramic views of the nearby Taos Mountains and looks beyond to capture the distant peaks of the Truchas Range. Constructed of 14" pumice crete with R-factor of 28 and wise solar orientation keep the home warm in the winter and cool in the summer". Jed Magee, Architect

Alto Vallecito is exactly as pictured - well appointed, clean, in a beautiful location, and very private. The views are stunning and you are just a few minutes away from the ski valley or the town of Taos. This is a quiet, beautiful place to rest and relax. We will definitely book this home again.

The house was a perfect fit for my family of 4 with two young boys. We were on one wing of the house and the boys shared a room on the opposite end of the house. Can't think of anything I'd change. Thank you!

Reviewer Comments:

Alto Vallecito which I think means "high little valley" is a totally welcoming place to relax and absorb the beauty and serenity that is Taos. The views are spectacular, the accommodations address everything needed for a perfect far as things to do, we always hike the Red River basin, go to a museum or two, the Harwood portrait exhibit happening now is excellent, Lambert's on the patio for dinner is the best though would never leave without spending time at Sobroso. We use the North End Health club which takes Silver Sneakers and so is no charge if you are a member. They have both an indoor and outdoor pool. We will be back in the fall. Just can never get enough of Taos. We plan to stay at Alto Vellicto again.

Second visit to Arroyo Seco, first stay at Alto Vallecito. House is very nicely done - well built, well decorated and spectacular views. We had 4 adults and 2 children in our group. The house is situated on several acres of land which worked out great for the kids being able to play outside. Taos Ski Valley is easy to get to at just a 15 minute drive up the mountain. Lots of shopping and restaurants in Taos and a few in Arroyo Seco. Fantastic hiking just a 5 minute drive up the road. Would highly recommend this home for a small group. We will keep this on our list of places to return to in the future. Thanks for a great stay!!

Coming in from a long 9.5 hr drive into Taos, we were greeted with the fantastic adobe masterpiece. It provided an instant comfort of home. The warm floors were a cozy detail coming in from a long day out in the freezing cold. The hot tub was perfect for soothing sore muscles from tackling the mountain each day. All in all, we all were very happy with the home. The pictures did not do it justice. We fully intend to be repeat guests for future ventures in Taos.

Reviewer Comments:

My family and I absolutely love this home. We recently stayed for a second time after about 2 and a half years in between stays. We loved it as much if not more this time. During our first stay, we only had one toddler with us. This time we had two kids (ages 2 and 4) and they had a fantastic time as well. The views are spectacular. The layout of the home is superb. The hot tub is an added bonus. Seriously, if you're deciding between this home and somewhere else, choose this one! You won't be disappointed!
