LARGE, PRIVATE LUXURY HOME -SKI TAOS OR SLED AT HOUSE

Taos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Situated on two private acres among pinion, juniper, and Ponderosa pines in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Range, this newly-built(2003), three bedroom plus house is a perfect spot to relax after a long day spent skiing or seeing the many sights of Taos.

This is a hand-crafted, custom-built, Non-Smoking home with Southwest touches such as coved plaster ceilings, log vigas, and the traditional Northern New Mexico-style pitched roof. The house’s many windows are oriented to frame the mountain views and embrace the New Mexico sun with a warm southern exposure that heats and brightens the house all winter. The large south-facing deck on the main level and the two private upper balconies can be enjoyed all year. A full-length covered porch on the north side stays cool through the summer months and provides plenty of room to stomp off snow in the winter.

The house is located north of the town of Taos (nine miles), off the road to the Taos Ski Valley (eight miles). The elevation is estimated to be 7900 feet - which means cool and refreshing nights even in the heat of the New Mexico summer.

Inside, there are three bedrooms: the master bedroom downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. One upstairs room has a lovely view of the Taos Ski Valley mountain, and is furnished with a queen bed. The other bedroom has twin beds and an optional futon double mattress for additional guests. Both upstairs rooms have large private balconies with southern views of the Truchas mountain range. The entire first floor has vigas with coved ceilings, and French doors opening onto the large south deck. The master bathroom has a large tub with a picture window framing a view of pine trees. The living room has a large fireplace, for nights before the roaring fire. The living room also has a queen-size sofa bed for extra sleeping capacity. The attractive kitchen has a Jenn-Air range and granite tile countertops, and is fully-equipped for most cooking needs.

There is an outdoor Jacuzzi tub for skiers to soak away the effects of a long day on the slopes. Taos Ski Valley is near our house, and Angel Fire is a short drive in the other direction. In winter, snow often blankets our property and there is a sledding slope for kids near the driveway. In summer, you are encouraged to bring your mountain bikes to explore the trails reached directly from our house.

NOTE: Our house is reached by a 1.9 mile county-maintained dirt road (Gallina Canyon Road). Depending on the time of year, a four-wheel drive vehicle may be recommended due to snow conditions.

This is our family enjoying the house!

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

My husband is a Native New Mexican, and Taos is a magical place

There is nothing like New Mexico! Skiing, hiking, Taos Pueblo, Taos Plaza, rafting the Rio Grande, eating green chile, relaxing in the hot tub while snow falls

Our family (7 people, ages 9 to 77) had a marvelous week here during the Christmas Holiday. Grandkids learned to ski, we all loved the town, sights, etc. House was equipped with everything we needed, and more. Kids loved the pool table, fooz ball table, hot tub., etc. We definitely want to spend another holiday here.

We have just returned from a lovely week at the beautiful casa Quintana! The mountains were calling and they did not disappoint! The house is superb, warm and inviting with breathtaking views of the mountains by day and an incomparable starscape by night! After long days skiing the hot tub was a perfect fit for aching limbs and the roaring fire warmed us inside and our. Thanks Linc for sharing your home!

PERFECT MOUNTAIN RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I had the supreme good fortune to stay at this beautiful mountain home this October, and it could not have been more comfortable and peaceful. The home is clean, well-stocked, and provides a great combination of creature comforts and high mountain retreat. Some features I most enjoyed are the comfortable beds, eastern light on the dining room table, outdoor hot tub, large south-facing deck, and trees, trees, tress. The photos show the basic amenities just as they are, but much of this location is too big to capture in two dimensions. The view out to the Truchas peaks and the Ponderosa pines are spectacular, and there is also a cozy interior, heat literally radiating from the floors, and a certain integrity to the property and its owners that invites trust and relaxation. I highly recommend this home and suggest activities such as skiing, hiking, snow shoeing, river rafting, and biking and restaurants such as Sabrosa's, Paizanos, Orlando's, and Love Apple. Enjoy!

GREAT ESCAPE, HIGHLY RECCOMEND

  • 5 of 5
We spent Thanksgiving weekend of 2013 with another family and accomidations and location could not be any better. Plenty of room for 10 of us and we took full advantage of the scenic beauty as well as the other perks, hot tub, game room, super close location to the Ski resort. The owners were great communicators and were very easy to deal with. We look forward to coming back soon. Rodney & Kerri Cross, Amarillo, TX

TAOS RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We (family of 6) had a wonderful 12 day stay at this great home. We had plenty of room and everything we needed. The nights were cool enough to try out the fireplace a few nights even though we visited in the summer, which was nice. House was very clean. Balcony views are gorgeous. Home is in remote area that is traversed by dirt road for @2-3 miles but is only about 30 minutes from Taos. You must visit the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge and for casual dining, the Five Star Burgers restaurant has delicious food (vegetarian as well). Would highly recommend this home.

Owner's Response: Fun for active families is why we have the casa! Don't forget tubing on the Rio Grande and biking the trails in the foothills!

GREAT LOCATION, JUST RIGHT FOR US

  • 4 of 5
We drove up from Albuquerque to spend a weekend in Taos. This was a great location, very quiet and peaceful. The house was just right for us, and had everything we needed.

Owner's Response: We built the Casa to let our California kids learn about the mountains and the wide open spaces of New Mexico, where I grew up. A peaceful weekend getaway is great for Burkers (Albuquerque-ans), but coming from San Diego we like to stay at least a week. But any time a family enjoys our home is a good time in our view.
