5/5 Excellent

Outstanding complement to a memorable wedding
Location and amenities were spot on. Great vistas and wonderful environment. Directions to property were excellent. “We’ll be back.”
Stayed 3 nights in Nov 2021

5/5 Excellent

Great Stay in Taos Area
Clean, we'll equipped home. Location a bit out of the way, but it is convenient to Taos Ski Valley. Great hot tub. Overall a very nice stay in the Taos area.

3/5 Okay

Nice, yet disappointing…
The home was nice with some unique features, but there was no air conditioning, which was claimed in the property listing. Ceiling fans in the bedrooms would help on really warm days. Unfortunately, the freezer did not freeze, so our frozen items thawed out. The view of the home was very nice, but the yard was overgrown and not tended well. We did enjoy the quiet, seclusion of the house. The hot tub was very nice, and well maintained.

5/5 Excellent

A great time!
Ron is a fantastic host. Loved the house. We’ll be back!

5/5 Excellent

Taos Ski Trip
Fantastic house with great views and fully stocked. We really appreciated the location from the ski valley. About 15 minutes and below the snow line. With COVID we cooked all meals at the house and enjoyed the premium kitchen facilities. Ron was easy to work with and was welcoming of our very big dog.
