Perfect summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a summer getaway! The Ridge Runner Cabin is the perfect place to enjoy the Taos ski valley in the summer months. The cabin has a game room, direct TV, legos, and hot tub which was perfect for my three young boys. The cabin is cozy, clean and has everything you need.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a ski trip! Authentic cabin in a gorgeous location. We stopped at the grocery store in Taos to stock up on groceries for the week and certainly made use of the full kitchen. Hot tub, DirectTV, game room, coffee pot, plenty of space for 8 to sleep, 2 full baths, washer/dryer....what more could you ask for? As others have stated, the ski resort is just over the hill....probably too far to walk, but less than a 5 minute drive. During our trip, Taos Ski Valley was running free parking lot shuttles that picked us up in the parking lot and dropped us at the little village at the base of the ski mountain. Of note, we are novice skiers and Taos is a challenging mountain (very steep). The owner, property manager, and caretaker were easy to work with and responded to emails/messages quickly. Cell phone reception is virtually non-existent, and that prevented the teen-agers from bumping into things while walking and looking at their phones.....I saw more of their eyes this week than I have in months!

We would definitely go back to the Ridgerunner! Thanks for giving us a great vacation.....

My family, adults and small children), had a wonderful trip to Taos ski valley. The cabin was located so close to the ski valley , less than a 3 minute drive. It is a cozy cabin and sleeps everyone comfortably. We all loved the hot tub!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin for a ski trip (for us) and winter getaway (for my parents). The cabin was exactly what was described online, no surprises. It was very clean and cozy and had everything we needed and then some. The location is very convenient to Taos Ski Valley, less than three minutes driving. It was very nice being able to bring the dog and he had a good time exploring the woods behind the property. The only confusing thing was the trash - we were instructed not to leave trash out due to risk of bears, but also instructed to leave it out every other day so the caretaker could come pick it up. There was a trash can on the porch, but it was not bear-secured and the porch was open so bears could easily climb inside to get to it. We were only there three days, so just left the trash inside when we left, but I'd recommend clarifying these instructions. Overyall, it was the perfect place for our needs and we would definitely stay here again.

Great Place, Great Location, and Great Service

  • 5 of 5

We are from Dallas and stayed at the cabin for 4 days for skiing. The cabin was absolutely fantastic!!!! We had so much fun because it was so well set up and it was extremely convenient! The few problems we had were immediately dealt with by the owner and we were very satisfied. We will return to this place again.

Follow up to our September 13 review

  • 3 of 5

The owner has repaired the deck, and has assured us that he removed the handyman clutter, will improve the lighting and that other upgrades will be completed. We would suggest you contact the owner to inquire which upgrades have been made to make sure your needs will me met based on what is important to you on vacation. This truly is a great location and is perfect if traveling with several people. If the upgrades are completed then it's definitely worthy of a 4 star rating.
