More than satisfied!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect for 2 couples, one of the nicest places We have stayed. Clean, comfortable and well decorated. Beautiful condo with beautiful views of the mountains to the east, and the sunsets to the west. I would recommend "Serenity" to anyone. We stayed 4 nights, and skied during the day and enjoyed the condo in the evenings. The large patio with gas bar-b-que grill was a great addition. The OBL Restaurant & Spirit shop is less than a mile away. We went there one night for drinks and another night for dinner. The food and atmosphere were great. The owner of the condo was in town during our stay, and she went above and beyond to make our trip great. Thanks Ellen, we are looking forward to returning.

Another Great Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying at Ellen's wonderful condo, and again, we had a great trip. Ellen has thought of absolutely everything you need for a great visit, from cooking essentials to a bottle of wine upon arrival. We were very sad to have to leave this gem in Taos. Thank you Ellen!

Great Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Stayed 3 nights over Labor Day Weekend. Property was better than described and was an easy process to rent. Condo was amazing and in a great location. The views from the back porch of mountains were wonderful. Ellen has thought of everything you need for a great stay, and of other things you didn't know you needed. We will be back! Thanks Ellen for making our trip great.

I felt At-Home

  • 5 of 5
I was in Taos for a meditation retreat. At such times, I require a peaceful, quiet place in order to obtain the best benefit from the Work I am doing. I found that at Serenity.

Early morning sun spills in the windows when it crests Taos Mountain. The shady, private outdoor patio has a lovely view of the mountains and of the sky. Many's the meal I took out there.

There was rarely traffic past the unit except from the distant highway, so it was quiet. I didn't hear neighbors at all.

The furnishings and decor are very good. I commented to a friend that my wife would like this space and its finishes, which says a lot (she's pretty discerning)!

The kitchen had all manner of implements and supportive supplies, from herbs/spices to plastic wrap/bags. Far more than in any condo I have ever rented before. Had I wanted to, the place was stocked for fine dining, easily seating eight at the table.

Ellen was a fine host. All through the process she was gracious, inviting, and supportive of my needs. I have rented numerous condos and hotel rooms for retreats in the Taos area.

Without question, this was the best facility I have used. My searching is over. I'll be renting Serenity again.

Serenity delivered on its name

  • 5 of 5
The welcoming bottle of wine or cider with chocolates was a nice finishing touch to a lovely home. The condo is tastefully done, not just done with "stuff to fill a rental", making it feel like a home away from home. We were able to relax at the end of a great day of skiing and take in the beautiful mountain views. Everything that we needed was there. It was a great place. We hope to be back next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for picking my home. I really want it to be a wonderful experience for my guests. I love hospitality and entertaining and providing this for you gives me pleasure. You sure picked a great week to ski. The snow was the best this season. I skied over the knee powder! Come back and bring that great snow again.

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5
So our group consisted of 5 students for a ski trip over MLK weekend. We got there Friday night and left Sunday. Upon arriving, we found the condo to have everything that we could think of, much better than any hotel room. From HDTV, wifi, a fully equipped kitchen and grill, towels etc, to even the smallest detail like house slippers, Ellen has thought of everything. The place is around a 15-20 min drive to Taos ski valley, and around 10-15 mins from the town of Taos, so it's in the ideal place to get anywhere you want. It was a comfortable fit for the 5 of us, I recommended Serenity to any of my friends heading up to Taos. Definitely would stay again!!!

What a perfect location to be in the center of such a unique area. This condo home, 'Serenity', is located on the way to Taos Ski Valley but closer to the town of Taos. The location allows you to be able to go to town easily in 5 minutes and also get to the ski area in 15 minutes. Being at 7500 feet, you do not have to be at over 9100 feet to sleep. We are close to the Rio Grande Bridge Road and to world class museums. Summer allows great rafting experiences and hiking to such great places such as Williams Lake or to the highest peak in New Mexico, Wheeler Peak, 13,161 ft. Festivals, theater, Art Galleries, Unique Restaurants are all around. I will be your consultant and provide you with all the recommendations to make your stay so easy. I provide a library of local travel books for your usage on site. I want you to have the best experience so you will want to return and go home sharing with your friends and family how great 'Serenity' and the Taos area was.

Other Activities: art galleries and museums

Ski: Taos Ski Valley has it all for every level of skier. I have lived in Aspen and skied the Sierras in CA for two decades. I love Taos because you are who you are there and the bottom line is that the skiing is great and there is no lift lines!
