Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Mike and Vee,



Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We all agreed that being here over Thanksgiving week was a wonderful way to enjoy our family being in such a gorgeous place, maybe starting new traditions for us. We hope to be back someday.

Our family has lived in Taos for 23 years. We moved to Taos from Louisiana after falling in love with the climate, arts, culture, beauty, world class snow skiing, and unique people. For many years, we have offered our 'Ranch House' to only our closest friends but now offer this incredible experience for you. Staying at the 'Ranch House' you will experience magnificent sunsets, watching cowboys herding cattle, and our own family and friends galloping through the sage brush on horses. You have miles of private property for your leisure and all of us are close by to help make your stay positive. We are in the restaurant business, as well, and understand the importance of local hospitality. We look forward to sharing our spectacular property with you.

Vee Yaccino/ Connie and Nat Troy purchased this house in 1987

My family built their own home in Taos, later purchasing the Mariposa Ranch in order to protect their property from development. It also enabled my family to utilize the property for their leisure, particularly riding their horses without needing to get on a busy road.The 'Ranch House' is the original living quarters on the Mariposa ranch. Most of our family members have lived in it at some point in our lives. My husband, three children, and I spent 8 years in this house. It's very comfortable for young and old, families or anyone looking for a romantic getaway. The Mariposa Ranch is a unique property in Taos. It is protected by Taos LandTrust and American Indian land.

The privacy and original buildings on this ranch make it an incredible experience. We have kept the barns, bunkhouses, pig barns, etc... in their unique, original state. We appreciate the local culture and flavor of Taos and have done our best to maintain that influence on our own property. The unobstructed sunsets, and nearby working cowboys are the highlights for us. And of course, that we have our horses grazing right outside our door. It is conveniently located 12 miles from our ski mountain. We are truly the Land of Enchantment.

Upon arrival we provide a bottle of wine, coffee, tea, chips and salsa, and chocolates.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
The Ranch house was more than we could have ever expected it to be. My 4 young kids, ages 8, 7, 5 and 3 had the most amazing time and we were all so sad to leave. Cannot wait to return next year for an extended stay...1 week was just not enough!

Great for summer vacations!

  • 5 of 5
Our family greatly enjoyed staying at Mariposa Ranch! Clean and comfortable, with the best view ever! We loved sitting out on the porch for early morning coffee feeling the cool breezes. We are summer in the mountains people and this was a perfect setting for us. The kids loved the barn cats and other animals. Would return in a heartbeat! Thank you for sharing your home!

Sad to be home

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from spending 8 nights in Taos and had to write a review as soon as I could get to a computer! We were two families--4 adults and 4 kids--and the Mariposa Ranch House was perfect! It is perfectly located between town and the Ski Valley, making travel in and around Taos very easy. The kids all loved the animals, treehouse, and hot tub and the adults loved sitting around the fire after long days of skiing. The owners were very accessible and keep the house fully stocked with everything you could need. Trying to convince the husband we should return in the summer...

Mariposa Ranch

  • 5 of 5
My family and I thoroughly enjoy our stay at Mariposa ranch. Beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, hot tub was delightful, the views were fabulous, house was spacious, and there was plenty to do. We went into Taos, hiked around the ranch, helped feed the farm animals, and went fishing to mention a few things. It was the most peaceful and relaxing vacations we have ever had.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5
My family and stayed at The Mariposa Ranch for a week in June. We were so pleasently surprised when we arrived! The pictures don't even do it justice! It is an amazing house. Our daughters were in heaven with their bedroom and all the animals on the ranch. It was so much fun sitting on the porch watching the girls "play", with the goats, the donkey, and the mule. The horses in the back of the house was the icing on the cake! The house was clean and stocked very nicely. We were very comfortable and had a wonderful time in Taos. We would definately come back to Mariposa Ranch. Vee was helpful and easy to work with. You will not be disappointed!

Perfect stay for Taos Ski Valley vacation

  • 5 of 5
Stayed four nights at the ranch house with another couple. Four adults and 3 children, 9 to 12 years old. Perfect location for skiing and going into town. Coming "home" after skiing, sitting on the front porch, looking out on the range and feeling the warm sun will be long remembered as well as watching the kids enjoy being with the horses, lamas and other animals. We've traveled the world and this is one of the best most fun places we have ever stayed. The house was warm and inviting and the pictures do not do it justice. The decorating was great and we liked the exposed beams and master bath design with a big shower and skylight. Beds were extremely comfortable. We enjoyed being off the beaten path (yet still convenient to everything) with no road noise and seeing the Milky Way at night. House was spotless. We look forward to returning next year. Thank you Vee!
