We had the most wonderful 10 day stay at The Barton's cabin. From the moment we walked in it was fabulous. The layout worked great with kids. The younger ones loved the large bunkroom (sleeps 6). With a big living room/game room just for the kids. The main floor had another double bedroom that my teen daughter decided to call her own. The 2nd story living room/ family room was so gorgeous with huge windows across the front, which was a wonderful spot to just read a book or watch the birds. the 3rd story held the master bedroom & loft. Each floor had a wonderfully cozy kiva fireplace. The house was very family friendly and made us feel right at home from day one.
We were only 3 mins to Angelfire ski lifts and the kids spent many days skiing there. We also tried out the Red River ski area which is only about 35 mins away. (there are at least 4 ski areas within about an hour). We took a day trip to Taos and enjoyed the many shops, food & museums. There are many hiking trails in the area so we manage to fit in a hike as well. So much wildlife, they seemed to be coming out on cue for us.....We saw Elk, deer, prairie dogs, big horned sheep, a coyote and even a couple of herds of wild horses! There was too much to do to fit into just 10 days and we can't wait to book again and enjoy another wonderful trip up in the mountains.
