Overview

New Mexico Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Downstairs Unit in House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

A perfect ski/snowboard place for family vacations. Charming 3-bedroom 2-bath unit on entire ground floor is soundproof from upstairs. 2 bedrooms with queen beds are adjacent to separate bathrooms (1 of these bedrooms has a separate outside entrance); 3rd bedroom has queen & 2 bunk-beds--ideal for children. Perfect for 2 families with 1-2 children each or 3-generation family as grandparents can have entirely separate bedroom/bathroom. Also ideal for 2 couples or 3 singles. Fewer people can rent the unit with only 2 of the 3 bedrooms and no access to the laundry room.

Cozy living/dining/kitchen area has everything--including spices! No one is out of the action stuck in a kitchen. Relaxing cabin decor includes aspen wood ceilings and comfortable furnishings. Free Wi-Fi & local calls. Most cell phones work fine except on the busiest holidays when tower capacity can be overwhelmed, especially for AT&T. On-site owner who loves to ski can provide forgotten items and local information re skiing, lessons, ski/board rentals, restaurants, etc, etc.

Short 5-7 min walk to lifts; optional very very short drive to parking area. 4-wheel drive or AWD strongly recommended for Coyote Lane although roads are plowed regularly; 2nd house in from low-traffic main road (Twining Rd). Assistance with access is possible with call to owner.

Very reasonable SUMMER and FALL get-away rates with popular hiking trails galore, mountain biking, disc golf & mountain lift rides. High temps in the mid-70s. Gorgeous night views of the stars.

Nancy Wellman purchased this chalet in 1989

Why Nancy Wellman chose New Mexico

We finished building our home in 1989. Recently, the kitchen and both bathrooms were completely remodeled. We have enjoyed our home and the nearby activities tremendously. It’s never ever boring! Dependable snow conditions and reknown skiing; unique tri-cultural area with beauty that truly enchants! No throngs = no lift lines. Trails to match all abilities; Super-great ski school for adults, teens, children; also kiddie/infant care. Delightful summer; great escape from the heat. Spectacular fall; brilliant foliage and great photo opportunities.

What makes this chalet unique

WINTER: Great snow conditions with frequent powder; Beautiful sunny blue skies; Starry starry nights! Deeply-discounted ski week lessons; torchlight ski parades Christmas, New Year’s Eves and Spring Break Saturday; acclaimed Wine Festival (Jan); awesome extreme ski competition (Mar); wonderful crowd-free family-friendly skiing & snowboarding.

SUMMER: Cool mountain temps with mid-70s highs. Wheeler Peak, NM's highest at 13,161 ft, visible from our street corner. Great hiking, mtn biking including Frazier Mountain Madness (July) with cyclists going directly up our street. Multiple Taos Mountain Music Festivals in summers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

NAncy, we left at 6am today. The place was awesome. We had so much fun. Sorry I didn't get to meet you. We left the front door open and keys on the table. Hopefully we will be back. Thanks

Loved it! Great attention to detail.

  • 5 of 5

This property isn't new and luxurious but excels at being cozy and sensibly outfitted with the essentials to provide a very comfortable stay at a reasonable price. It was very clean when we arrived. Details like a full spice rack and complementary bathroom soaps and shampoos were also greatly appreciated. The owner is responsive and deserves high marks for customer service. The location is great and the mountain is a blast! I hope to return again soon!!

Great place to stay, walking distance to base

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Wellman Cabin the last week of January 2016.

The place was clean and as described in the pictures and it had all the necessary for a nice stay.

The cabin is within walking distance to the rental shops and lifts..it takes approximately 10 minutes walking, but you can always drive and park in the base parking lot (you will save about three minutes maybe).

We were very happy with our stay!

Great place to stay in TSV!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Wellman Cabin. The Cabin was clean and it is as described, it is within walking distance to the base area (takes approximately 8 minutes to get there walking) which is great. I would definitely recommend this place to stay at and will love to comeback!

We had a great stay in the Wellman Chalet. So close to the Village we had a wonderful time would stay there again. Chris (over sees the property when Nancy is out) was a great help, thanks again.
