Perfect for 2 couples, one of the nicest places We have stayed. Clean, comfortable and well decorated. Beautiful condo with beautiful views of the mountains to the east, and the sunsets to the west. I would recommend "Serenity" to anyone. We stayed 4 nights, and skied during the day and enjoyed the condo in the evenings. The large patio with gas bar-b-que grill was a great addition. The OBL Restaurant & Spirit shop is less than a mile away. We went there one night for drinks and another night for dinner. The food and atmosphere were great. The owner of the condo was in town during our stay, and she went above and beyond to make our trip great. Thanks Ellen, we are looking forward to returning.

Beautiful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay. Very warm and inviting, from the slippers to the robes and wine. The kitchen was stocked abundantly with everything you need to cook with. The fireplace was very relaxing to use at night. Taos was close to shop and visit to walk around. The Rio Grande was within driving distance.

Great location, Quality furnishings and Everything you would Need!

  • 5 of 5

The high end quality of this home is so inviting. You know pride was put into it when they decorated. Serenity does not feel like a rental property but more a home of your own. The kitchen is fully equipped so everything you need is there. The views are unobstructed of the both the sunrise and the sunset. You can see the mountains from the beds. Just open your eyes and the enchantment begins your day. The host provided us with all her special secrets of the area to explore and to dine at. This will be our only place to stay in the future on a return trip to Taos.

Would definitely stay again

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Ellen is an awesome host. Her recommendations for the local cuisine was spot on. The accommodations were great.

The condo doesn't have A/C, but it was plenty comfortable and watching the sunrise was morning therapy.

We would definitely stay again.

Taos Ski Valley
Car: necessary

What a perfect location to be in the center of such a unique area. This condo home, 'Serenity', is located on the way to Taos Ski Valley but closer to the town of Taos. The location allows you to be able to go to town easily in 5 minutes and also get to the ski area in 15 minutes. Being at 7500 feet, you do not have to be at over 9100 feet to sleep. We are close to the Rio Grande Bridge Road and to world class museums. Summer allows great rafting experiences and hiking to such great places such as Williams Lake or to the highest peak in New Mexico, Wheeler Peak, 13,161 ft. Festivals, theater, Art Galleries, Unique Restaurants are all around. I will be your consultant and provide you with all the recommendations to make your stay so easy. I provide a library of local travel books for your usage on site. I want you to have the best experience so you will want to return and go home sharing with your friends and family how great 'Serenity' and the Taos area was.

Other Activities: art galleries and museums

Ski: Taos Ski Valley has it all for every level of skier. I have lived in Aspen and skied the Sierras in CA for two decades. I love Taos because you are who you are there and the bottom line is that the skiing is great and there is no lift lines!
