Good place for a large group
This home is listed as a ski in/ski out...the ski out part was easy...the ski in part was a little tasking. The house is on Texas flats ski run & it lives up to its name...be prepared for a short cross country ski adventure! The house itself was great & accommodated several families comfortably. You might consider bringing your own towels or be prepared to do several loads of laundry as there were enough towels to bathe but not to use the hottub as well. We literally had deer eating out of our hands the night we arrived...which thrilled the kids! The drive up & driveway were all well maintained & easy to maneuver. The heated floors & fireplaces were the only heat sources (as far as we could tell) but the house stayed pretty warm. There was zero carpet which is great to not have to worry about with so many people. Be advised that there is no wifi, one baby tv with sparse cable in the library, & one tv with VCR/DVD in a bedroom downstairs...I know that mountain vacations are not supposed to be about Internet & tv but the option of family movie night would be nice. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking equipment & dishes & the home has lots of sitting room for eaters. Overall, the home worked well, the property manager was nice, & even with the snow trek home it was WAY better than walking to the cars, loading gear & people, & hauling them up & down the mountain!
Owner's Response: Glad to hear that our most recent guests enjoyed their stay in our mountain retreat! One note made was to consider "bringing your own towels." This would be a great way to approach our need to be extremely water conscious in New Mexico--(provided that future guests return home with the dirty towels to be washed once back home.) New Mexico is a state where water is a precious resource, and we make every attempt to conserve water. As full-time residents of Santa Fe, we read state government reminders to save water in every commercial bathroom we enter: restaurants, hotels, shops, schools, and galleries. "BYOT" is an idea we'd love to see other guests embrace.
