Why Page Patterson chose New Mexico

This place was bought as a ski cabin but most importantly as a retreat space. Yoga & Meditation are an integral part of this space as are sun light, vistas & warmth from the wood stove.

What makes this cabin unique

I am the property manager lucky enough to manage this special place. There is a peace and serenity here that I rarely find in properties. Also there is a sense of welcome here. The owner wants others to benefit from and enjoy this mountain abode.

Spectacular Vies of Ski Valley

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I had a few days away in the mountains and this cabin has spectacular views. A few things that folks need to know is there are 82 steps leading up to the cabin so it's not for the faint at health or heart. Maybe it's my misunderstanding of what was expected but we were not greeted with any instructions on what was or was not required upon our arrival and departure. No bathroom condiments are furnished (i.e., shampoo nor soap). There was 1 coffee filter and enough coffee for one morning. Again, maybe it was my misunderstanding but these would be essentials in a motel/hotel so guess I just thought they would be provided here as well. I would suggest the owner spray for bugs as we did fight bugs often while inside. Might suggest a professional cleaning as well. Cob webs and dust layered many surfaces. I don't want to really be negative, just suggest some improvements. We did really enjoy our stay and, once you get to the cabin, the view and peaceful atmosphere are worth the stay.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry about the coffee filters- there should have been more. There is coffee in the freezer. There is shampoo and soap below the bathroom sink, I'm sorry they were not in plain view. Also, there is a welcome letter on the kitchen table. Was this missing? The cabin was professionally cleaned on Monday, unfortunately dust does settle in the 6 days until your arrival. I believe the steps and intensity of the cabin is clear in the listing: I believe 'not for the faint of heart' makes it clear. Indeed, this is the Mountaineers Cabin. Sorry it did not meet your expectations. Potential guests: there are many condos available for rent at the base of the ski valley, a more mellow experience in many ways.

Perfect mountain cabin get away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were in the area for a weekend of hiking and this rental worked perfectly for us. The cabin is in the ski valley but nicely away from the main area so you get even more privacy and feel closer to the nature which is literally all around you. The cabin was quaint, comfortable and a great respite from our daily adventures.

Wow

  • 5 of 5

I'd like to say that this place is horrible... So that you won't rent it when I want to be here. This place is amazing! It is beautiful, peaceful, and just what a person needs to get away. Now, believe them when they say there are 83 steps. Please don't bring a suitcase. Also, be able to drive a small mountain road if you stay here. Otherwise... come. The peacefulness is indescribable. Page, the property manager is AWESOME!!!

This cabin is located a 5 minute drive from the lifts of Taos Ski Valley. Trials up to Wheeler and Gold hill begin off the front porch. 83 sometimes snow covered steps lead up the cabin. Four wheel drive is required in the winter. This cabin is for the extreme, hence the name: Mountaineer's Cabin.
