Scrabble House Compound - is a land mark Taos vacation rental home rental - offering a great dining / kitchen open floor plan.

The 3 bedroom main house comes equipped with a 4th full guest bathroom for children and teens sleeping on the Hidde-a-Mat topped cots leaving the 3 King master bedrooms with total privacy.

Situated on Ski Valley Road with an uninterrupted drive to Taos Ski Valley and a short 4 mile drive into town makes this "Taos lodging find" a popular choice for groups going in opposite directions for vacation fun (golfing, rafting, hiking, painting, skiing, dining, exploring, biking, fishing, researching or shopping),

Spring, summer and autumn the "Endless Pool" is in full use with fitness buffs and curious guests wanting a 1st time "Endless Pool" experience. For our Texas audience who believe summer lodging must include air conditioning - Scrabble House comes equipped with an "Evaporative Cooling" system - designed specifically to function in dry desert conditions. In addition, there are 3 ceiling fans and 4 large portable fans to insure cool conditions for our "very few" hot summer days.

Reviewer Comments:

Scrabble House worked very well for us. The compound is located between Taos and the Taos Ski Valley, which allowed our skiers to get to the slopes without driving through town each day, and the rest of us to visit the Taos attractions easily. Our extended family group was ten, including two children, so the main house and guest house provided comfort and privacy. The kitchen was well equipped, and the dining room and living room allowed us to gather comfortably together. Washing machine, dryer and dishwasher were super quiet. Although we prepared and ate most of our meals at the Scrabble House, (purchasing most of the ingredients at Cid's, a local grocery about five miles away in Taos), some of our group dined at Orlando's (for New Mexico cuisine)and Medley (for more up-scale dining), and recommend both. The nearby Millicent Rogers Museum has an excellent exhibit of pueblo pottery. Our stay was a most pleasant experience.

Reviewer Comments:

This property offered a lot of space and privacy. The casita was a plus as we needed sleeping arrangements for 8. The kitchen was very well equipped and we utilized the large dining table every night. The fireplace made the living area very cozy. The location was great being very close to Taos and only about 20 minutes from Ski Valley. We did not get a lot of information from the caretaker. He met us at the property when we checked in, but seemed distracted and did not offer much information. I would have liked a more detailed tour of the property and amenities, more conversation, and the chance to ask questions. Fortunately, we did not have any difficulties while we were there, so we did not need to contact the caretaker during our stay. This was a great property to spend our holiday vacaation.

Reviewer Comments:

My family and I stayed here for 5 nights in December. Very spacious, plenty of room for 7 adults (2 couples, and 3 singles) to each have their own rooms. Family, dinning, and kitchen areas are well equipped and spacious to host large parties. We really enjoyed making breakfast and dinner here to start and end a day. Fresh cut cedar firewood was on the property and worked great for building a fire in any of the 3 fireplaces or the out door fire pit. We had the main house and the side house together for the entire group, worked great to have the separate smaller house for the younger ones to retreat to at the end of the day. Location was great as well. Only a short 10 minute drive into the main part of Taos, where we did dinning and shopping. We partake in skiing activities in Angel Fire, which was only a 50 minute drive away. Did this because the slopes are easier than Taos ski valley. The drive through the mountains was beautiful. We also drove up to the Red River area for an activity, this also was around a 50 minute drive. Overall, the house and the location were great. Arriving and departing was hassle free as the care taker was easy to reach and responded quickly to any text message question we had. I highly recommend the Scrabble House Compound to any one needing a house outside of the main city of Taos with large amounts of space.

Reviewer Comments:

Nice big house that handled 10 adults in 5 king sized bedrooms (3 in main house and 2 in casita). Kitchen was well equipped, loved the giant cooper counter and big dining table. Appreciated the fenced yard for the dog, and loved the outside fire pit. Plenty of dry wood was available for fires inside and outside. Hot tub worked great. Enjoyed the games and puzzles available to us. Casita was "older" - less nice furniture and beds. We used the oven in the casita to keep some thanksgiving dishes warm, and there was a bad smell when the oven was on. Hopefully we burned off what ever it was. Shower didn't drain particularly well I the casita either. But neither issue was a big deal. The compound is right on the main road going toward the ski area. Road traffic died down at night and wasn't an issue. Compound felt private, especially out back. Loved the evening lights, terrific view, and horse shoe pit. That was a nice surprise. Stars were amazing, just liked we hoped for. Had one phone call/text with property manager about location of keys, otherwise had no need to contact. We might have to make this an annual trip!
