Thank you! Yes, the vacation was beautiful and very, very relaxing! Your house is even more beautiful in person than the pictures and description, so all of my friends were very impressed with my "find." Thank you so very much!

Relaxed in Taos

  • 5 of 5
The house was wonderful. Very Clean. We loved sitting on the deck in the hottub at night watching the stars! Our kids loved the movie collection that was available at the house. They also loved walking around the property. We were able to enjoy big family dinners at the house.

Beautiful Home with Lots of Privacy!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 9 had a fantastic stay in your beautiful home. Our 3 little children loved their private room upstairs where they could play alone!! The open living and dining areas with kitchen overlooking these areas, was great as we gathered and could all be together, yet, have lots of space! We used the big dining table for the meals we prepared from the well supplied kitchen and also for the games we brought. It snowed one night, so the next morning the kids had such fun with the saucers we brought sliding down the property hillsides. The Taos Ski Valley is 9 miles from the house driving through beautiful mountains. Parking is easy with shuttles to the entrance of the ski area. The staff at the Valley was very helpful, and our 7-year old girls were able to ski from the highest ski lift along with their parents...the girls went to ski school the day prior along with the 3-year old. We all enjoyed the very warm hot tub each evening, and the stars were so bright, letting us even see the constellations! The views of the mountains from the house are beautiful ,and there is complete privacy and plenty of room to park our 3 cars. Thank you Wells family for letting us have a terrific family gathering with great memories of the Holidays in your home!

An inspiring setting for an awesome getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was a great family getaway for a variety of people. Couples, newly weds, cousins, sons and daughters 10 of us in all had great stay here. The house was roomy, cozy, homey, you name it we loved it. The only suggestion was a bigger hot tub, it was awesome sitting in the tub with snow falling on your head, we just couldn't all fit, oh well.. The setting and the view was great. Sandy was very helpful on the phone even when I got the day we were supposed to leave wrong, my bad. We will definately come back to Taos and stay here. Thanks for sharing your lovely house. Mark and family

Astrophotography & Side Trips

Astrophotography & Side Trips
  • 4 of 5
We used the house for side trips, nightly astrophotography, dining out and evening conversation.
In our 8 day stay we visited: Taos Ski Valley – 3/5, Rio Grande Gorge – 3/5 & Bandelier National Monument – 4/5, Cimarron Canyon – 5/5 (Thunder, rain and sleet – very fun- really), Cumbers & Toltec Railroad – 5/5, Taos Pueblo – 3/5 & Fechin House – 3/5. Taos Cow Ice Cream was a great stop in nearby charming Arroyo Seco.
For Astrophotography my husband set up on the deck; this was terrific because there was plenty of space and it was a short walk to the leather chair in the living room where he could run the scope from his computer while conversing with the group and having a glass of wine. The Darkness was 21.4 with clear skies every night. He got two great pictures.
The internet connection was good and the wireless connection solid (we had 5 computers running).
For our birders: we finally got a good look at a group of Pinyon Jays who did a fly-by several times during the day. We also saw a Juniper Titmouse, Townsend’s Solitaire, Red Tail Hawk, Belted Kingfisher (down by the creek) and Virginia’s Warbler without even leaving the deck.

July Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
My family and I met here for our family reunion. The house was beautifully decorated and the rooms were perfect. The younger kids LOVED the upstairs loft with all the twin beds and "their own TV." We enjoyed some hikes around the property, golfing, shopping, and lots of time at the house playing games or watching movies. We were able to cook our own meals at the house as well as enjoy some grilling on the deck. The view from the deck was amazing! Overall our stay was just what we wanted. Our one surprise was to find that only one person in the family had cell service and that was out on the upstairs deck. In the end it was actually nice to have everyone present in all the activities because no one was checking their phone :)

Fun spot for a group

  • 4 of 5
The house was great with easy access to both town and the ski area and a beautiful view of the valley. Clean and comfortable with responsive owners. The open kitchen was nice for making meals together. We read in a review that the movie selection was great for kids, but not for little kids so if you've got young ones, bring your own movies or better yet send 'em outside to play in the snow. The hot tub was a bit cloudy when we got there, but there was a good "renters binder" with information including hot tub care and we treated the tub with the chemicals provided and that helped some. Overall a great experience.

Car: necessary

The town of Taos is a beautifully historical old town that offers art galleries, great food, live music, and the native Taos Pueblo Indians (inhabited since 1200 A. D. ) . There is great skiing in the Southern Rocky Mountains at Taos Ski Valley, Red River, and Angel Fire. White water rafting in the Rio Grande Gorge from April thru June is a must and you can go horseback riding, mountain biking, hot air ballooning, camping, and fishing nearly year around. If you love to play golf, you will enjoy playing Taos Country Club - a desert styled course open to the public. Taos is located only an hour North from Santa Fe - a great day trip. Taos weather is spectacular with low humidity and cool nights. The house altitude is approximately 7, 000 ft. The home is 12 minutes from the Taos ski area and the town of Taos and 2 minutes from the town of Arroyo Seco. Whether by car or motorcycle, drive the Enchanted Circle for inspirational views, photos, and unique shopping experiences.

Other Activities: motorcycling, snowmobiliing, art galleries
