5-MINUTE WALK TO LIFTS; DOWNSTAIRS UNIT IN HOME IN TAOS SKI VALLEY

Taos Ski Valley Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Downstairs Unit in House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

A perfect ski/snowboard place for family vacations. Charming 3-bedroom 2-bath unit on entire ground floor is soundproof from upstairs. 2 bedrooms with queen beds are adjacent to separate bathrooms (1 of these bedrooms has a separate outside entrance); 3rd bedroom has queen & 2 bunk-beds--ideal for children. Perfect for 2 families with 1-2 children each or 3-generation family as grandparents can have entirely separate bedroom/bathroom. Also ideal for 2 couples or 3 singles. Fewer people can rent the unit with only 2 of the 3 bedrooms and no access to the laundry room.

Cozy living/dining/kitchen area has everything--including spices! No one is out of the action stuck in a kitchen. Relaxing cabin decor includes aspen wood ceilings and comfortable furnishings. Free Wi-Fi & local calls. Most cell phones work fine except on the busiest holidays when tower capacity can be overwhelmed, especially for AT&T. On-site owner who loves to ski can provide forgotten items and local information re skiing, lessons, ski/board rentals, restaurants, etc, etc.

Short 5-7 min walk to lifts; optional very very short drive to parking area. 4-wheel drive or AWD strongly recommended for Coyote Lane although roads are plowed regularly; 2nd house in from low-traffic main road (Twining Rd). Assistance with access is possible with call to owner.

Very reasonable SUMMER and FALL get-away rates with popular hiking trails galore, mountain biking, disc golf & mountain lift rides. High temps in the mid-70s. Gorgeous night views of the stars.

Nancy Wellman purchased this chalet in 1989

Why Nancy Wellman chose Taos Ski Valley

We finished building our home in 1989. Recently, the kitchen and both bathrooms were completely remodeled. We have enjoyed our home and the nearby activities tremendously. It’s never ever boring! Dependable snow conditions and reknown skiing; unique tri-cultural area with beauty that truly enchants! No throngs = no lift lines. Trails to match all abilities; Super-great ski school for adults, teens, children; also kiddie/infant care. Delightful summer; great escape from the heat. Spectacular fall; brilliant foliage and great photo opportunities.

What makes this chalet unique

WINTER: Great snow conditions with frequent powder; Beautiful sunny blue skies; Starry starry nights! Deeply-discounted ski week lessons; torchlight ski parades Christmas & New Year’s Eves; acclaimed Wine Festival (Jan); awesome extreme ski competition (Mar); wonderful crowd-free family-friendly skiing & snowboarding.

SUMMER: Cool mountain temps with mid-70s highs. Wheeler Peak, NM's highest at 13,161 ft, visible from our street corner. Great hiking, mtn biking including Frazier Mountain Madness (July) with cyclists going directly up our street. Multiple Taos Mountain Music Festivals in summers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

NAncy, we left at 6am today. The place was awesome. We had so much fun. Sorry I didn't get to meet you. We left the front door open and keys on the table. Hopefully we will be back. Thanks

Fantastic Location, Beautifully Furnished, All The Comforts of Home

I very much recommend this rental to anyone wanting to stay in a lovely and comfortable home which has everything you'll need -- and within walking distance of Taos Ski Valley.

I have rented several homes in vacation areas and this was one of the cleanest, nicest and best stocked, with new dishes, great quality appliances and comfortable furniture. With the sole issue we had (Internet), the Owner reacted immediately.

We'll stay here again if we return to Taos!

Taos Chalet

This chalet was very cozy and extremely well equipped. Things that would have improved the experience for us would have been having foam mattress pads available to add onto 2 of the big beds, they were very hard! More comfortable seating for more people in the sitting room would have been nice too. These are things that would have made the stay even better. We were originally going to be with more people and I'm glad it didn't work out that way because of the bed situation and the lack of comfortable sitting space. Those are easy things to improve. The best things however, were the proximity to the village, it was very very clean and extremely well stocked. There was nothing we had to do without, they thought of everything right down to the bathroom amenities! Our family of 4 would definitely go back there as it is! BTW a 4-wheel drive is absolutely necessary!! The local caretaker was great as well - he was easy to get hold of and came to shovel the 2+ft of fresh snow we had on NYE!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and helpful suggestions.
We added foam toppers for the queen beds and comfy cushions for the extra wooden folding chairs in the living/dining area.
So glad you enjoyed your stay including our nearness to the lifts.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay.
Sorry for the hot water not being on. That's a first for us; due to a communication gap with our local manager. Glad you were able to resolve the issue.
There is a discount for return renters. Hope you'll stay another time.
