About Mindy Jones

This property has been in my family since I was a baby. I've enjoyed many holidays in it over the years. It's one of my favorite places on the planet because of how peaceful it is.

Mindy Jones purchased this cabin in 1969

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much we enjoyed the cabin and our stay in Taos. Everything was just perfect for us. What a wonderful little treasure of a cabin to have in the family! Thank you for the well equipped kitchen … everything you could want to cook a meal, and then some! We only wished we could have stayed longer. The neighbors where very kind and we enjoyed meeting them too.

Thanks so much and we hope to come back again.

Wonderfully quiet and well located cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin. It is located far enough from the road that one does not hear the traffic. It is close enough to Arroyo Seco but isolated from other cabins to have a quiet time. It was perfect for a couple with a kid. I would work nicely for a family of 4 as well.

Great cabin, highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great and within a few minutes drive of the Taos ski area! The cabin was clean and the owner had everything organized for easy check-in/check-out.

Just the right size in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. Mindy, the owner, was amazing--helpful and responsive. The house itself is a great size. For just two people, we had more than enough space.

The house is just a few minutes from the Ski Valley, and a short, beautiful drive to Taos itself. It's location makes getting to either easy.

Highly recommend!

I was SO excited to stay in this cabin and I did for 3 weeks in June/July with my 2.5 year old. It is located in a beautiful setting and for the most part it worked out pretty well except: When we arrived there was dirty laundry piled in one of the rooms, dead flies all over the floor by the west window, a broken drawer that I later got blamed for breaking and unfairly charged for, and very very slow internet ( I thought it would be high speed as I needed to do work). All of that I was willing to not say anything about that and just enjoy the cabin for all the pluses but when it came time to refunding the large cleaning deposit, the owner is only refunding a small portion because of 'damage' that we did not do. I emailed the owner trying to see why she was charging me so unfairly and she will not return my emails which I think is very unprofessional. I would not recommend this cabin to any friend.

Owner's Response: This renter did not report any problems until she was confronted with leaving the house trashed, including stained carpet, childs writing on bamboo flooring, urine on a down comforter and duvet, a drawer that was working until her stay among other items now missing including silverware. If she had contacted me at check in about issues she brought up when notified about damages I would have had my house keeper go up. I would not consider renting to her again or recommend anyone else interested in having an intact rental property do so.

excellent mountain cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

I miss this place so much. It's a great location. We have 3 young boys and they were free to play along the Rio Hondo, pick wild raspberries, ride their bikes up and down the long dirt road that leads to the cabin, and just play without fear of traffic. It was fairly secluded and the views are amazing. There are a few other houses along the road, but most were not occupied. The river adds so much to the experience. At night we had the window open to our bedroom and could hear it babbling along, a perfect sound machine. It also drowns out any noise from the road to the Ski Valley. It is close enough to Taos, Arroyo Seco, and the Ski Valley that it's not a chore to get to. The cabin itself is simple, comfortable, and clean, nothing too fancy. But for this price you aren't expecting much. The kitchen is small, but it has pretty much anything you might need to cook a meal. It even has plenty of sharp knives (something that most rentals seem to miss). Wifi works great. We had an issue with the water heater, but it wasn't a big deal. You can't beat the weather in the area. Coming from Texas, the weather was perfect and cool. I hope we get to back again soon, I could easily spend a month there.
