Sitting on several wooded acres and nestled at the foot of the majestic Sangre De Cristo mountain range, Las Posadas El Salto is Northern New Mexico’s ultimate vacation home. This architect designed custom built mountain adobe chalet boasts an incredible view of Taos Valley to the West, and to the East an awe inspiring view of Taos Mountain and El Salto peak normally reserved for the pages of your favorite travel magazine!

Imagine waking up in the morning to fresh mountain air, while taking in your “100 mile” view of the Taos Valley from your 800 square foot balcony, located just outside the master bedroom. Soak away stress in your private hot-tub or settle into a plush sofa and watch your favorite movie on one of 2 flat-screen televisions fully connected to Satellite, DVD and XBOX. Cook your meals and entertain guests using your spacious and fully equipped gourmet kitchen or head 2 miles down the road for dinner in the quaint mountain village of Arroyo Seco. Your home comes with high speed Wi-Fi internet access and even a small business center so that you take care of your clients and get right back to enjoying your mountain getaway.

Conveniently located 8 miles from downtown Taos, and 8 miles from the world renowned slopes of Taos Ski Valley; you will not find a better place to serve as a hub for the endless wonders of Taos New Mexico and the surrounding areas. It doesn’t matter if you are a first time visitor, or a seasoned traveler to Taos. Los Posadas El Salto will provide you with the vacation experience of a lifetime.

We know our fellow travelers have a lot of vacation rental options in and around Taos. We believe all they need to do is watch our beautifully shot video tour of the house and its private forested surroundings and read our reviews from past guests and they can picture themselves in one of the best family getaways in Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall in Northern NM.

(Please scroll down and click on video of this property below the Further details line on the web page)

We hear over and over again that when guests arrive and relax at the house, they feel the weight of hectic life schedules and stress and demands lifted. This is one of the most peaceful and quiet settings in Taos. Most properties here have the noise of some road or highway or other city type sounds. At Las Posadas El Salto all you hear is the wind singing through the tall pines and snow falling on cedars in winter.

As a designer and builder from California and eventually New Mexico permanently. I finally found a place where I could create and build the green type of structures that would compliment the beauty of the land. New mexico is so famous for allowing artisans to choose different materials and construction types.It just made sense to make this home.

James Baldonado purchased this house in 1996

After designing and building a home for my family in El Salto. I got the chance to live in it. It didn't take long to know that this is the best land in Taos without a doubt. I then got my chance and was able to purchase a few acres in the same area a few years later and design and build this gorgeous home with my father.

As I have said.' El Salto is the best area in Taos'. The forest, the quiet, the deep snows in the winter and cool temps in the Summer make it so magical any time of year. Just ask any local about El Salto.

Enjoy!

This was our second time in Taos. Both in Spring Break with two families of skiers. Last year we were at another property also very nice in El Salto Area and price was similar. However Las Posadas El Salto property was just an outstanding property. We had a blast. House is really comfortable. High windows all around makes for a great natural light with amazing views to the woods that surround the property. House has all the details you would have on your home. TVs in all rooms, great movies library, games. Really comfortable beds, sofas, and decoration. My thumbs up to the owner. We were two families with two kids each. Was perfect.

Awesome get away, secluded, but close to ski resort

We were hesitant about staying here because the price was so cheap but boy were we glad we booked this place. It is secluded down a dirt road with spectacular views. The house is much nicer than the pictures as most previous post already described. The owner checked in daily either by dropping by or by calling to make sure our stay was adequate. It wasn't that creepy "checking up" on you kind of stopping by, the owner actually wants to make sure your stay is perfect in every way. We had three couples in the house and during our stay one of the wives scratched her eye and was having serious problems. She decided to stay home one day while the rest of the group went on a snow mobile tour. While we were gone the owner stopped by to see if all was well. After finding out the wife at the house was having eye issues, he drove her to town (about 15 miles) and got her into a local eye doctor. My friends wife had no car left for her and her husband had the cash and credit cards on him. The owner, Jaime, offered to pay for the appointment until we could get back from the snow mobile tour. Luckily we got home and realized that she was already in town and we showed up to pay the bill. We thought this was way above and beyond for the homeowner. Turns out she cut her cornea (she was in a lot of pain) and needed several follow up appointments. We couldn't thank the owner enough for his concern and generosity. I could go on and one about the good things in this house and the owner but the gest of this review is to let future vacationers know that the property is awesome and we would definitely stay here again if in the Taos area. The house is fully equipped from cooking needs to towels, to dish and clothes detergent. I'm sure if we ran out, Jaime would have had the stuff to us in a few hours.

A Wonderful Winter Getaway Location

We spent our Thanksgiving Holiday at Las Posadas El Salto and had a fantastic vacation. The house was perfect for our needs. We had our family of 4 upstairs in the 2 story main house and my In-laws stayed in the separate apartment. We also brought our two small dogs!

The downstairs apartment has a small kitchen where meals could be prepared and it's own refrigerator, too. We cooked all of our meals upstairs and found the kitchen to be well stocked with all we needed. The dining table seats 8 and there is additional space to sit if you need to feed more people. The radiant floor heating kept the house nice and cozy.

The top floor is a very large master bedroom and bath with a balcony and office space. There is plenty of space for an air mattress (or two) in this room if you need additional space for children or other guests. TVs in every room make it easy to accommodate all viewers, although we didn't spend much time watching TV. My son did enjoy the Xbox downstairs and there was a wide variety of games and movies available.

The house was in a beautiful, serene location set off of the main roads. We hiked along El Salto road. There were many places to play in the snow near the house, so our kids were very happy building snowmen and playing right outside the door! When we did venture out, we had a quick trip (10 min) into Taos to shop/eat and it was also conveniently located on the way to the Taos Ski Valley (15 min).

Jamie was extremely helpful and very responsive. We had a couple of questions and were able to text him or call and get an answer right away. We needed dishwashing detergent, I texted, received a quick reply, and it was delivered that day while we were out. The washer and dryer were very handy as well.

We enjoyed our winter vacation. We travelled to the US Ski Hill which is a great place for some free sledding. We purchased a sled at the Taos ACE Hardware and had a blast! We enjoyed shopping and exploring the town of Taos and Arroyo Seco., We went snowmobiling on the Taos mountain with Big Al.
We had so much fun, that we are planning to visit again in the summer, and Las Posadas El Salto is where we will be staying!
Owner's Response: What a magical, snowy, perfect Thanksgiving holiday we had in Taos New Mexico. I think this is the best place to host your family and friends for any holiday of the year. It is so quiet, private and custom in quality of furnishings and amenities. I sure do enjoy having all of my extended family come and spend a week at the property.

Happy New Year everyone,

Jamie Baldonado
