We know our fellow travelers have a lot of vacation rental options in and around Taos. We believe all they need to do is watch our beautifully shot video tour of the house and the property with its private forested surroundings and read our guest reviews and they can picture themselves in one of the best family vacation getaways in winter, spring, summer or fall in Taos New Mexico.

Safe travels everyone and Happy vacationing.

Sitting on several wooded acres and nestled at the foot of the majestic Sangre De Cristo mountain range, Las Posadas El Salto is Northern New Mexico’s ultimate vacation home. This architect designed custom built mountain adobe chalet boasts an incredible view of Taos Valley to the West, and to the East an awe inspiring view of Taos Mountain and El Salto peak normally reserved for the pages of your favorite travel magazine!

Imagine waking up in the morning to fresh mountain air, while taking in your “100 mile” view of the Taos Valley from your 800 square foot balcony, located just outside the master bedroom. Soak away stress in your private hot-tub or settle into a plush sofa and watch your favorite movie on one of 2 flat-screen televisions fully connected to Direct TV Satellite. The house has a fine DVD collection for guests to watch and movie streaming capability from your smart phone. (please bring your appropriate cable/adapter for your smartphone iPhone or Android to hook up to the TV HDMI cables provided) to watch any movies, photos or other media content from your smartphone.

Cook your meals and entertain guests using your spacious and fully equipped gourmet kitchen or head 2 miles down the road for dinner in the quaint mountain village of Arroyo Seco. Your home comes with high speed broadband Wi-Fi internet access and even a small business center so that you take care of your clients and get right back to enjoying your mountain getaway.

Conveniently located 8 miles from downtown Taos, and 8 miles from the world renowned slopes of Taos Ski Valley; you will not find a better place to serve as a hub for the endless wonders of Taos New Mexico and the surrounding areas. It doesn’t matter if you are a first time visitor, or a seasoned traveler to Taos. Los Posadas El Salto will provide you with the vacation experience of a lifetime.

We hear over and over again that when guests arrive and relax at the house, they feel the weight of hectic life schedules and stress and demands lifted. This is one of the most peaceful and quiet settings in Taos. Most properties here have the noise of some road or highway or other city type sounds. At Las Posadas El Salto all you hear is the wind singing through the tall pines and snow falling on cedars in winter.

We hope this description of travel information to our property and all of Northern New Mexico in the winter months from October through April is helpful in answering vehicle and access questions.

Las Posadas El Salto is located in the Southern Rocky Mountain region. We see snow and variable winter weather from late October to late spring (April) throughout the state of New Mexico. We stay on top of the job of snow removal of the driveway and walk ways at the property with our own snow removal equipment, including using our own snowplow to keep the road to the house/property plowed as well. Our neighborhood also hires a private snow removal contractor for the main road the property is located on. We also spread small gravel for traction as much as possible. We have learned this from 25 years of skiing at Taos Ski Valley, which has similar road and walkway winter maintenance. We have always advised our guests on the websites to use good judgement when embarking on a winter getaway to all of Northern New Mexico and other nearby states that experience winter weather that can make traveling by car a little tricky. We suggest the following options for vehicles.

1) 4 wheel drive or AWD is strongly recommended. (But there are other options that our guests and friends can take.)

2) For front wheel drive vehicles and rear wheel drive vehicles only. We suggest buying two inexpensive snow tires, that are non studded for the front wheels or drive wheels and also purchasing a set of good snow chains for the car as well. We have never had a vehicle problem in 25 years of living in Taos that we couldn't take care of without any mishap.We extend that help and advice to our traveling friends and guests coming into the area in Winter time to avoid any problems. We wish all our guests very safe travels on all their excursions. Happy vacationing.

About Jamie Baldonado & Jenna Allen

As designers and builders from California and New Mexico. We finally found a place where we could create and build the Green/Eco type of structure that would compliment the beauty of the land. New mexico is so famous for allowing artisans to choose different materials and construction types. It just made sense to make this home in El Salto.

Jamie Baldonado & Jenna Allen purchased this house in 1996

Why Jamie Baldonado & Jenna Allen chose New Mexico

If you have the chance to read our reviews or if you are a seasoned Taos local, you will already know that this area of Taos called El Salto is the best place to live in the Taos valley. It is the most desirable and expensive real estate in Taos County.

What makes this house unique

As we have said.' El Salto is the best area in Taos'. The forest, the quiet, the deep snows in the winter and cool temps in the Summer make it so magical any time of year. Just ask any local about El Salto.

Thank you for a perfect get away from our busy city life.

Home in the mountains as I might have designed it myself.

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly what I needed. A welcoming home away that afforded me quiet when I needed it, and socializing when I wanted it. The upstairs room and deck were perfect for me. Thank you so much.

Loved the location. Reminded me of my beloved upper Michigan.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Jamie had everything we needed and more. We loved the location-close to the ski valley and we especially loved the location-hidden and wooded. We will definitely go again -will try the summer next time.

Absolutely gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was absolutely perfect for our needs. Three generations of family got to chill, play in the snow, cook, and head up to the slopes for some skiing. We got stuck a few times (driving a 15 passenger van without any chains can do that to you), but Jamie helped us out with good humor. A fantastic host and a beautiful place to stay. Thank you!

Great location, quiet, convenient to both Taos and the ski valley

  • 5 of 5

If you enjoy peace and solitude equidistant from Taos and the ski valley, this is your place. It was also just a few minutes into hippy dippy Arroyo Seco with restaurants, shops and interesting people. Great hot tub all ready to enjoy when you arrive. Definitely would return.

You may bring some sheets with you to put on beds and sofas. We do have some sheets here for that purpose. When you go out for activities or food and plan to leave you pets behind. You must crate them with the dog crates provided at the property.
