This is the #1 Rated VRBO in Taos Ski Valley! Situated at over 10,000ft and just a short walk from the base of Chairlift 4, the Alpenglow Chalet is waiting to become your family's favorite getaway. One of the newest accommodations in Taos Ski Valley, this vacation property offers *unmatched* views of Kachina Peak and the Sangre de Cristo mountains surrounding the ski area. Thanks to its height in the valley, sunrise and sunset paints a special glow on the mountains, hence the name 'Alpenglow Chalet'.
This property has all the extra touches to make your vacation memorable. Downstairs it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus plenty of storage for your outdoor gear. Heated tile floors take the edge off the brisk mountain temperatures and the fireplace in the middle of the floor-to-ceiling windows is the perfect setting for a night of stories, cards, and laughs. Also, enjoy the large, flat screen TV above the fire for movies or satellite TV. The kitchen is open and has plenty of counter space for cooking big meals for the large groups that fill our condo. Upstairs, you'll find comfortable couches, a TV for DVDs, and dozens of movies and board games- it's perfect for the kids or young adults. Additionally, there is one queen, one standard, and three twin bunks in this spacious loft area.
If you don't feel like cooking, you're in luck! The highly-acclaimed Bavarian Restaurant is our neighbor. You will find delicious homemade German meals and the finest imported beers served in a beautiful and rustic Bavarian lodge. No need to drive, it's just down the trail!
In the summer, the Alpenglow Chalet is the perfect headquarters for all your outdoor adventures. Adjacent trails lead into protected Wilderness Areas and onto the picturesque Williams Lake. Towering above the condo is Wheeler Peak, the highest peak in New Mexico, and a great place to hike. We also neighbor 'Northside', a collection of mountain bike and hiking trails for all skill levels.
During the winter, a short 5 minute walk takes you to the base of the Kachina lift, where you can skip the crowds by putting on your skis or snowboard starting your day on the fresh backside snow! The easy access to and from the condo means you can have a hot lunch in the well stocked kitchen, or sit on the deck and watch your family and friends ski the Kachina bowl and trails.
Roads are well maintained in the summer and plowed in the winter, however chains (available w/ most car rentals) or a 4x4/AWD is strongly recommended in the winter.

About Rob Marshall
We met serving in the Air Force. Mark & Heather were married while stationed in England, where they shared a mutual friend, Rob. The three of us have traveled the world together and shared many amazing memories. Mark and Rob still serve in the Air Force and climb mountains together in a charity program. Mark and Heather have three kids that are quickly growing up to be amazing skiers and rock climbers.
Rob Marshall purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Rob Marshall chose Arroyo Seco
We LOVE the mountains and that is why we bought this property. It is perfect for our families and we hope you are able to experience the stunning sunsets and unbeatable views. Each morning we wake up in the condo puts a huge smile on our faces! Give it a try- we're willing to bet you'll love it too. Since we are moving all over the nation/world, we wanted a place we could always meet at and call 'home' together. So, while stationed in Albuquerque, we purchased this beautiful property! Now stationed elsewhere in the nation, we still meet up there at least 2-3 times a year in order to share more good times in the mountains and keep involved in our friends' and families' lives.
What makes this Condo unique
WE HAVE A HEATED SINGLE GARAGE WITH SKI/SNOWBOARD RACKS FOR GUEST USE! Plus, we love how close it is to Chairlift 4 AND the Bavarian. It gives us time to have a leisurely breakfast before walking w/ the kids to the chair lift area. Plus, having a beer at the Bavarian is nice b/c we can just walk back to the condo and not ever worry about driving our entire vacation (once we reach the condo, of course). In the summer we like to enjoy our coffee on the deck, then head out for a hike along the creek (just a stones throw away) or get our discs out for the free frisbee golf course. At night we love to cook large meals and feed big crowds of friends and family, then gather around the fireplace for card games that last late into the night. If it's winter, we make sure to go out for at least one night of moon-lit skiing in the backcountry above Lake Williams. It's a magical experience. (But we don't recommend it unless you are an expert in backcountry travel)

Spring Break 2018
The condo was great but getting to it was a bit difficult. They should tell you that the road to the condo is not paved and a 4 wheel drive vehicle is recommended to get to and from the condo.
Len- thanks for mentioning how great the condo is!! It sure is an awesome mountain getaway. We’re disappointed you rated us 3 stars simply because the property is on a mountain road in a mountainous ski area, especially since the documents you received, and our VRBO page, clearly said (more than once) you needed 4WD or chains in the winter. Perhaps you could double check all those sources and adjust your feedback to us and all our wonderful guests?! If not, come back and see the property again in the summer!
Nice place and great location
Being in the ski valley is very convenient and worth the additional costs over other properties. This condo was the perfect size for our large family (3 adults and 4 kids) and was well equipped and very clean. We would certainly come back to this location in the future. If the weather is potentially bad (snow or ice), would highly recommend 4 wheel drive. Our weather was amazing, and we had no trouble at all with a 2 wheel drive suburban. With a better snow season, could easily be ski in/out with a short walk. The views and the deck are priceless. Would be excellent for a summer vacation with close access to hiking trails, restaurants and other mountain activities.
Beautiful views, great property!
We had 9 guests and the home was super accommodating. Rob was very helpful and professional. We highly recommend this property.
Thank you for the positive feedback James! We enjoyed having you all as guests are sincerely look forward to you returning, whether it be in the summer, or next winter when the mountain is covered in fresh snow (fingers always crossed!). We offer discounted rates for our returning guests, so don't stay away too long!! Cheers- Rob
Rob’s place was so nice and the views were incredible. Rob was very prompt at communicating when we had questions. We will definitely be back!
We loved the unit! Wonderful views, very comfortable condo! Exactly as described. We will definitely be coming back.
Week Vacation In Taos Ski Valley at The Alpenglow
Our vacation was in the late fall of the year (late October) and targeted at some really quite, peaceful time to unwind from the daily hustle/bustle of everyday life. In short, the Condo and location "nailed it" for us.
To say the least, the Alpenglow Condo and the view off of the balcony was second to none (spectacularly amazing!!) and made our stay absolutely amazing. We were absolutely blown away with the view when we arrived. From what we could tell, there is not another facility in the Ski Valley that has even close to the view of the mountains that the Alpenglow provides.
The Condo itself was perfectly decorated to add the right atmosphere, it had all accommodations necessary to make the stay absolutely perfect! Upon arrival it was perfectly cleaned, so warm and inviting and the location nestled in the south end of the valley was excellent.
We began each day and ended it on the balcony taking in the breathtaking view offered "only by this place". It was an experience we will never forget and we hope to be a repeat customer in the future.
Thanks so much! Bob and Diann
Bob & Diann, We're so VERY happy to hear your vacation was awesome and that our property "nailed it". Hurray! Who can ask for more than that?! The view is always changing as nature constantly rearranges her colors, foliage, rock formations, snow and general weather, so please come back and enjoy that great view some more! Cheers- Rob
This wonderful property is surrounded on all sides by mountains and pristine forest. Hike 1hr to Williams Lake. Go another hour or two up and reach New Mexico's highest point, the top of Wheeler Peak at over 13,000ft. Frisbee Golf, Mountaineering, Trail Running, Relaxing, and Mountain Biking abound in the summer. In the winter, well, it's all about SKIING and SNOWBOARDING on Taos Ski Valley's famous slopes that are waiting for you right outside the window! Want to leave your car and do some walking? The Bavarian Restaurant/Lodge is just a 5min walk through the forest. Try their house-made German food and top quality imported German beers. Listen to live music (both summer and winter) outside on their porch. There is plenty to do here, whether you want to be active in the outdoors or just relax inside while enjoying truly phenomenal views.
