Why Dragonfly Manager chose Valdez
This is the most exquisite area of Taos County with incredible views, privacy and space for magical gardens, and easy access to both town and Taos Ski Valley. Also, you will be sleeping at about 2000 feet lower than the ski valley, making altitude sickness less likely during your stay.

TY For your kind review.
Beautiful property inside and out
The home is older but has been well maintained. At first we thought the layout was unusual. But the common areas being spread out over both floors made it so that we never felt too crowded. And the dining area easily fit 10 with room to spare yet seemed cozy with the fireplace. There are so many interesting details and artwork that you feel like you are in someone's personal home rather than a rental. Without saying more, the 'view' from the master bathroom is a must see!
There are plenty of outdoor decks with magnificent views. And the grounds were a pleasure to explore with numerous gathering areas along with many hidden 'gems'. But my favorite spot was the atrium full of beautiful plants. I would love to see this home in the summer and also in the fall when the Aspen leaves turn.
The road is winding and has some steep sections so you definitely need a 4WD vehicle if there is a lot of snow.
TY so much; we look reward to having you back in summer or fall! Anne
We shared a great family experience as a result of the quiet setting and seclusion. The mountains are right there and beautiful! We had a wonderful full moon to see by at night. The accommodations supported our family needs. Anne was very responsive and met our every need including a lovely welcome basket upon arrival. Thanks!
We enjoyed hosting you!
The most amazing place in New Mexico I have ever stayed, absolutely breathtaking!!
Come back soon! We look forward to hosting you!
