Our family has been coming to the Sangre de Cristo mountains in NE New Mexico since I was a little kid. We spent a good deal of time for years at Philmont Scout Ranch on the other side of our mountain. Philmont is also the final resting place for my father and brother.
So owning a Taos House has been a long time desire and we felt fortunate to have purchased our Chalet right on the Hondo River just 3-miles downhill from the world famous Taos Ski Valley Resort. We decided to use our home as a vacation rental so you can enjoy it and the area too.
