Truchas Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House, 10 Bedrooms + Den, 9.5 Baths, (Sleeps 20-40)

Book your accommodations at Truchas Peaks Place, then head north to Sipapu Ski Resort, a short 30 minute drive, to reach New Mexico’s family friendly ski area. Sipapu, with affordable lift ticket prices, generally opens before any other resort in New Mexico and has the longest ski season in the state.

Your family groups, youth function, retreat or reunion members will be comfortable in the spacious 10 bedroom suites at the Truchas Peaks Place lodge, a 12,000 square foot facility. There is room for group interaction as well as private space for quiet reflection after a day of skiing. Located on the High Road, State Road 76, midway between Santa Fe and Taos, Truchas Peaks Place is strategically situated for access to additional area attractions, whether that is gallery shopping, taking in the selection of fine dining or visiting historical sites.

Truchas Peaks Place, located on the High Road to Taos, and nestled at the foot of the Truchas Peaks Mountains, is 45 minutes from either Santa Fe or Taos. Newly constructed, the spacious building melds traditional adobe architecture with the territorial pitched roof style for a southwest ambience while indulging the visitor with modern amenities. Guests can easily travel State Road 76, a New Mexico Scenic Byway, to find Truchas Peaks Place both accessible and secluded. There are ten bedroom suites. Each suite has a queen size bed, luxury linens, writing tables. Six suites have private bathrooms, four of the suites share two bathrooms.

Providing the amenities of a fine hotel, Truchas Peaks Place is an ideal location for small retreats, conferences and workshops, or reunions and weddings. The bedroom accomodations are complemented by ample meeting rooms.

Common spaces include a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, dining room, 3 sitting rooms and a large library all available for guests to share. A floor plan is available on our website. The entire structure has 12,000 square feet of space. Common areas and second floor suites have gas fireplaces.

Individual suites may be rented depending on availability.

Outside, are decks and portals for panoramic views of the Truchas Peaks, the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range, the Jemez Mountains and the Pedernal, made famous in the paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe.

Awake with the sun streaming in your windows; sit on decks or portals and breathe in fresh mountain air while your eyes are treated to magnificent views of the Truchas Peaks. Create your own private reprieve from traffic, congestion, crowds. Find your connection to the natural world through the serenade of birds by morning or the croak of frogs by evening. Be open to the surprise of a sudden rain shower or snow fall that unexpectedly makes way for pure clear blue skies to break through.

Just around the corner, you find the village of Truchas, settled in 1754 and still maintaining the link to its Hispanic heritage. Spanish is often spoken and the buildings are still constructed of adobe. There is a flourishing art community with numerous art galleries exhibiting contemporary art as well as regional arts, weaving and woodcraft.

Truchas Peaks Place provides a leisurely atmosphere, where you can use the space to structure your own getaway, making day trips to the attractions of Northern New Mexico or finding comfort in relaxing within a restful, rural setting.

Scenic Mountain Retreat, Southwest Style, Close to Santa Fe
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Excellent place for a group of about 15

  • 5 of 5

This facility is gorgeous and the views, especially at sunset and sunrise, can't be beat anywhere. The office staff are always helpful, the room s are beautiful and well designed, the beds comfortable and bedding changed weekly. The photos on the website represent it well. The library is so large that books are filed by Dewey Decimal and should not be returned by readers, like in a good institutional library. Kitchen is very well equipped with two modern refrigerators and an AGA stover with 4 different ovens and 4-5 stovetop burners. Washers and driers are provided. Of course, you need to bring your own food, so shop in Santa Fe before you arrive!

2009 Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome to stay at. 3 families went in together and we all had a place to lay our head. It was very clean. The staff was extremely kind and informative. We cooked our own meals and their kitchen had everything we needed. The kids walked right out and played in the snow... the snow was beautiful! Skiing at Sipapu was a fantastic experience because the slopes were easy for the kids to learn on. The sledding in Sipapu was tons of fun too. Big cities were not too far away for when we needed something from Super Wal-Mart. I would highly recommend it!
