The location is great! not far from all the fun places. We really enjoyed the cabin, mornings drinking coffee on the deck were just wonderful. July and 41 degrees In the mornings! The hot tub was a hit and we used it every day. Well stocked with everything needed. We loved it!

This was my first Airbnb experience and it sets the bar high. The chalet was perfect for what I was seeking for my 40th birthday trip. There's an amazing healing energy here. Great accommodations - everything was just as advertised and more. FYI It's not air conditioned, which I never even thought of checking on, but we were comfy. No one slept upstairs though - so it might have been a little warm up there in the heat of the day. The location is amazing and convenient to TSV, Santa Fe, Red River, and ABQ - not to mention a road trip to Colorado. This bnb is definitely on my "return here ASAP" list! Thanks David!

House is in a beautiful location just minutes from the Taos Ski Area on a little river. We visited over Memorial Day weekend. Master bedroom area is beautiful and comfortable with its own gas fireplace. Large deck outside is nice as well. Kitchen/kitchen supplies need a bit of updating.

We had an overall wonderful experience. David responded quickly to all messages and was very helpful. The cabin's location was excellent-in a picturesque, easily accessible spot while very close to the ski resort and many beautiful hiking trails. The cabin was a great fit for our family of 5 with literally rooms to spare; the cabin could have comfortably held additional guests. The loft bedroom, the hot tub and the opportunity to explore around the creek were highlights for our children. We loved the coziness of relaxing around the fire in the evenings or soaking in the hot tub. It truly was a great fit for a weekend mountain get-away!

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.
