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) as well as does the rest of Northern 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 that 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 we also suggest 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.
