Mountain get away
Great place to relax with family. Mountains surround the property on all sides. Quiet, outdoor areas to enjoy, space to gather together or retreat for a bit of privacy. Lots of beautiful places to drive, hike or bike and plenty of places to shop or visit museums. Our host was wonderful and responded quickly with answers to questions.

Wonderful Christmas Ski Vacation Rental
The Scrabble House was perfect for our extended family get together for a Christmas ski vacation in Taos. We had 3 generations staying in the two houses and there was plenty of room to spread out. I loved that each room in the main house had its own private bathroom. We were able to cook family meals with ease, gather at the large table to eat and play games, and go skiing or shopping during the day — each drive was close by. A huge shout out goes to a very gracious Terra, who came over with a spare key on Christmas Eve when my son locked himself out of the guest house. We brought our two dogs and took them on walks each day. This was a very special vacation and everything was perfect!

Great work retreat space
Worked good for our work group retreat. Location easy to access other projects we needed to visit. Large space for everyone to meet, eat, visit and work in one location.

Great space for large family gathering
Location was great (sense of being away from things, yet so close to town), scenery was remarkable, well-stocked kitchen, lots of room for our crew. (5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms was great!). Only downside, wi-fi was spotty, didn't allow everyone to be on at the same time and lighting in master bedroom (especially) and kitchen (somewhat) was really dark. Overall, we loved the place and will mostly likely return!
