Nice house with great location but needs improvement

  • 3 of 5
Great location. Close to ski valley and lots of hiking trails. Bring groceries, the stores are a 30 minute drive away. Linens and bathrooms were clean. Easy access off road during winter. Hot tub clean and working. Large dining table. Nice having washer/dryer in house. We had 4 people and never ran out of hot water. Reasonably priced for summer for what you get. Assortment of books, DVD’s, VHS movies, and games. But DVD and VHS players did not work. Not a good property for someone with mobility issues. Entrance steep and uneven, lots of stairs inside house. Needs blinds. Up with the sun (which is ok during ski season but not so much in summer). Needs new HDTV to replace existing tube TV. DVD is broken, as is DirectTV remote. Large hole in decking on balcony. Dangerous for all but especially if traveling with small children. Cluttered with construction/handyman supplies. Foosball table needs to be removed as amenity. It is broken and needs to be removed. Lighting is poor with light bulbs missing or broken light fixtures. If you want to be “off the grid” this is the place for you. No working landline telephone, no working internet, no cell phone service.

Would love this to be our new family tradition

  • 5 of 5
Our entire family stayed here the week of Christmas for our first annual family ski trip. We had a fabulous time. The cabin was so perfect for our family. Unless you are staying inside the resort you couldn't ask for a better location, last house on the road into the resort and first house on the way out. The house is right on the road, but the kids made sledding paths up in the trees behind the house and loved every minute of it. We were nervous about the kitchen being TOO basic, as the reviewer stated below, but we found we had almost everything we needed and we cooked a full meal every night. There is no dishwasher, but we took paper plates, etc. to cut down on the washing. I would recommend taking as much food as you can because it is pretty isolated from any access to groceries, etc. We took the other reveiwers advice and did that. The restaurants and bars in the resort are great as well though. The living room is fairly small with minimal seating, but the dining room table is great for a large group. It's all fairly open so it does help with everyone moving around and not feeling too on top of one another. It was great that the kids could all be upstairs and hang out to watch movies or play games and the adults could be downstairs. The washer and dryer were great and the hot tub was SO fantastic! We loved being in this true log cabin in the mountains with the fantastic snow covered trees all around us!
CONS:It was VERY cold while we were there, so it would've been good to have a few more blankets to put on the beds. The heating was a little hard to manage, but after the first 3 days we worked out a system. The wood burning stove heats the downstairs somewhat, but creates an oven upstairs, we had to open the upstairs windows at night to keep from sweating and the downstairs bedroom was quite cold. The "central heating" doesn't work sufficiently, but once we figured out our balance with the stove we were good. There's no wifi and very spotty cell service, so if you're wanting access to the outside world you either have to stand in the road or go into the resort, but if you're going for a get away it's great! The caretaker is quite difficult to get a hold of and doesn't respond too quickly, not sure if this was due to the Christmas holiday or just the norm. Luckily we didn't have any major issues.
We will DEFINITELY be doing this again soon and would love to stay at Ridgerunner!!

Decent spot, little rustic but great setting

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I did a quick trip for a few days to Taos and found this cabin online. The booking process was quick and seamless. The caretaker was available when we needed assistance with the cabin. The location is up the ski valley about 15 minutes from Taos (about 9-10K elevation) and we lost power (the entire ski valley lost power) and I imagine this would be a frequent occurrence given the location. Keep in mind, cell service is spotty and there is no Wi-Fi which is unfortunate. There is no outdoor grill and the kitchen is VERY basic. No dishwasher. If you want to cook out, you have small weber charcoal grille outside on front patio.

Overall, we had a very pleasant stay. If we do it again, we will pack more groceries and be prepared to stay close to the cabin as the travel to Taos for a good meal is a hassle. The ski village is closer (about 5-7 minutes) but doesn't have much for food that we noticed. Sarbosa is a good restaurant though and would suggest.

The cabin sits right on the highway (150) and if you have pets/kids, gotta keep an eye on them. No hiking trails on the premises and you need to walk/drive to nearest trails.

I would suggest the Bavarian Restaurant which was very neat up the Twining Road near the base of the mountain.

Hot tub outside was very nice after a long hike.

Basically, good spot for the price, but don't expect luxury. A very middle of the road accommodation deep in the woods.

Fabulous vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Ridge Runner for a week in July and had an amazing time! The cabin was perfect: gorgeous views of the mountains, comfortable, and relaxing. The water issue in the previous review has been fixed, so we had plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Plenty of space, so the adults had peaceful mountains and the teens had a great time hanging out in the huge loft space or playing in the game room. We enjoyed the hot tub after hiking or horseback riding. It really is a paradise up on the mountain. If you are looking to get away from it all and be in nature, go to Ridge Runner. Easy, gorgeous drives to Taos, Arroyo Seco and the Ski Valley for activities...or just read, do puzzles, relax at the cabin. Everyone we dealt with from the owner, to the owner's assistant for booking, and the care taker were accomodating and kind. We will definitely return to Ridge Runner!

Spring Break 2012 PS

  • 4 of 5
After reading my review I thought of a couple things I meant to mention. 1 We never did find the dishwasher it was well hidden. 2 The stairs we had several youngsters w us and I was really concerned about the stairs. There is a big window that runs parallel to the stairs. I had a vision of a child being silly and falling through that window. I feel as though there should be a railing or some sort guard to keep a person from falling into the window and possibly breaking it. I don't even want to think about the possible outcome if that was to happen. Watch your kids on the stairs. I feel better now. Have a blessed day and a wonderful visit.

Ridgerunner Cabin Taos Ski Valley Spring break 2012

  • 4 of 5
The cabin is wonderful, comfortable, warm & cozy. The location is perfect is you are looking to stay close to ski area. The place is beautiful.
Having water to shower, wash dishes, clothes etc was not guaranteed. When we had water we had to take army showers.. The upstairs bathroom shower and sink quit working completely. The toilet stopped up and we had NO luck getting a hold of caretaker to come clear it. We used water from hot tub and a plunger and cleared it our selves after a day of 1 toilet to 10 people.

Our trash never got picked up during the entire 4 night stay. We were never even acknowledged by the caretaker.

The owner did try to return my call to my cell phone which did not work at cabin. There is a land line the owner could have called on. I feel sure he knows the number. Make sure you have a calling card other wise the phone will do you no good..

We were asked to wash as much laundry as we could while we were getting ready to go the washer took 2 hours to fill, there was no detergent & the dryer squealed loudly. It took at least 2 cycles to dry anything. So we didn't wash but a few towels.. Also there were tools, paint, chemicals etc stored improperly all over the cabin so beware if you are planning on taking a toddler / young child. I brought several baby gates w me.

Except for these major issues the cabin is great, the big box of legos in the LR were a life saver (since we managed to get there w no toys for the kids.) There are videos & dvds, games, the kitchen had everything we needed. Plenty of towels & sheets, we were glad we had brought a couple blankets we used them at night.

Lots of stairs and level changes. Chemicals in hot tub were really strong made our eyes water bad. We got hot during the day but the cabin has great flow thru ventilation. There are some upstairs windows that need screens. There were plenty of things to do in area. If you are going when there is snow there are some snow toys & shovels outside. We saw a really cute chipmunk, it got into our trash. The water tasted good when I refilled my bottle from tap. There was a small fan in the downstairs bedroom that was a gift from God it was a perfect white noise to sleep by because when the cabin is full of people it is noisy.
Would I recommend cabin? If water issues were solved and there was a secure place onsite to put trash. The owner said he was fixin to update washer/dryer unit. Hope these notes are helpful God bless you
