'COOL' STREAMSIDE SUMMERS AND 'HOT' WINTER SKIING AT CHALET RIO

Taos Ski Valley Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Streamside Chalet with Private Hot Tub, 2 Bedrooms (sleeps 6) and 2 Baths

NOTE: PLEASE CONTACT THE OWNER FOR AVAILABLE DATES

OVERALL DESCRIPTION

With large decks (800 sq ft) overhanging the Rio Hondo, in a private heavily forested mountainside setting and with a stream-side Hot Tub, Chalet Rio (with easy winter access) is a short 5 minute drive to the Taos Ski Valley and about 20 minutes to the Taos village center.

Being the owners second home, the interior (about 1100 sq ft) is nicely, artfully and comfortably furnished to blend into the superb natural outside setting. With two bedrooms, one being a very large loft with 2 Queens, Chalet Rio comfortably sleeps six. The beds are very comfortable. It has a full kitchen, large living room, large dining area and 1.5 bathrooms, including washer and dryer. With hardwood floors (and area rugs), a 2 story high wood vaulted living room, and large picture windows on all sides to view the mountain sides, the stream, the bird feeders and the aspens and blue spruce trees, the retreat setting has been described by some of our guests as 'meditative and magical'. The multicolored mini lights on the large spruce next to the Hot Tub add to that feeling at night.

LIVING ROOM

The living room is large, has comfortable recliners and couches, a corner fireplace, a ceiling fan, a library of books, CDs and DVDs, Satilite TV and a stereo system. Sitting there, you can look right up the Rio Hondo, watch the birds on the feeder as well as squirrels and chipmonks. In winter, the view from the living room of winter birds, snowbanks, icecyles and the outdoor mini lighted tree can be extraordinary.

FULL KITCHEN

It is a large kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. It has all the dishes, stainless ware, and other kitchenware and gadgets of a home. We also provide sugar, flour and an assortment of spices

DINING AREA

Expandable wood table with chairs seating 6 persons

BEDROOMS

The upstairs bedroom is a very large loft. It has a Queen bed and a Queen Futon, but one with a comfortable spring mattress. There are two sets of drawers. The downstairs bedroom has a full closet and a Queen bed. During the summer, when the windows are open, you can hear the stream at night which most guests enjoy.

MASTER BATHROOM

Hardwood floors, tiled sink and counter, shower and commode

HALF BATH AND LAUNDRY

Pedestal sink, commode, washer and dryer with tiled floor

sink, commode, washer and dryer

Guestbook comments from the owner
"Some really good things to do are go to the ski lift, play in the river, hike, go fishing and go horseback riding, looking for chipmunks - there's lots of them. This cabin was great. I loved the hot tub. I might come in the winter and ski!



P.S. Once I went horseback riding I loved it so much that I think I will quit soccer and start horseback riding. Thanks"

Lane and Ann Kirkpatrick have lived around the USA, but having become familiar with New Mexico, we made a decision 21 years ago to become permanent residents here. We have our primary residence in Corr ales, NM and always enjoy our escape and retreat to Chalet Rio alone or with our family and friends.

The Owner purchased this chalet in 2004

Lane and Ann Kirkpatrick bought this property initially because of the great skiing at the Taos Ski Valley and because of all the other exciting activites we saw going on in Taos. It wasn't long after purchasing the Chalet that we realized what a great place it also was in the other 3 seasons with hiking trails accessable right out our front door, beautiful wildflowers and a clear mountain stream in the summer and golden aspen leaves around the Chalet in the fall. AND WOW!.... to escape the Albuquerque heat in the summer has been a real blessing!

I can still hear the sound of the water flowing by the deck while we were dining or enjoying our morning coffee, It was all just as represented and very relaxing. Thank you Lane for your wonderful availability for any questions. An easy drive into the Ski Valley or back into Taos. An ideal location for our purpose and we look forward to our return and hopefully an even longer stay.
