More than satisfied!

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 and comfortable condo with view!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days in Taos and at Ellen's condo, but we would have liked to have stayed longer. The accommodations were very nice with great attention to detail. We had everything we needed for preparing breakfasts and lunches, and we enjoyed being on the patio to enjoy the mountains. Ellen was very helpful in assisting with our travel plans and for making recommendations. She checked to make sure that our stay was going well. We would love to return to Taos and Ellen's condo!!!!

Ellen was great to work with. She made sure everything was ready to go and called to let us know. The accommodations were wonderful. The perfect place for one or two couples and the location was great and quiet. There was everything we needed. We will definitely look at staying here again when we visit Taos.

Great condo with beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for my husband, two teen daughters and myself. Everything is fresh and pretty and the area is quiet yet not far from Taos and outdoor activities. The back patio is so relaxing and the mountain views are mesmerizing. Ellen was a great help to us in planning activities and she takes pride in keeping her condo in great condition.

Beautiful Place. Exceeded Our Expectations.

  • 5 of 5

My family (me, wife, and two kids -- 14 and 11 years old) stayed at 'Serenity' for a 5-night trip to go skiing in Taos. Ellen's property was beautiful, and perfect for our family. The property is well designed with two bedrooms, two full baths, a full kitchen, a living room and a dining area. Everything was in perfect order and beautifully maintained. We particularly liked the location being half-way between Taos and Taos Ski Valley. We have been to Taos three times previously, but always stayed in town. Staying at 'Serenity' we avoided all the traffic in town and were almost half the distance to the mountain, but we were not too far from town to go to the grocery store, go to dinner, or go shopping. We also discovered lots of great places outside of town that we had never visited before. Ellen was a great host who checked-in on us and offered great suggestions while in Taos. We highly recommend staying at 'Serenity'. Thanks for a great trip.

Owner's Response: Thanks Matt. I am totally into hospitality and want my guests to have a great vacation. Come back to Taos. You hit the jackpot with all that new snow this past weekend. Glad you got home safely driving through the weather today. Ellen

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!
