The Rio- was Grande
Second time to stay here and my family loved it. The water was so high it flooded a part of the bank because of the melting snow. We loved sitting by the river and making bon fires and just relaxing. The house is beautiful and inviting.
The location is great and the pictures on the listing do not do it justice. It is much prettier....
Would Move There
Loved everything about the time we spend there, the house and property is in top shape, and very well taken care of. Will come back in a heart beat, loved it!
All About the River
We loved our stay at the Rinconado Retreat!
The home is beautiful, comfortable, and well-equipped. The artwork in the home is amazing and was enjoyed by all four of us. We found ourselves discussing it and researching the artists.
We loved sitting by the river watching birds and listening to its soothing sound. The walks described in the home information were great and took us to some stunning scenery.
Two members of our group went fly-fishing with a guide from The Taos Fly Shop. They just about wore out their arms pulling fish in. The guide had a counter and calculated that they caught over a hundred fish!
We enjoyed meals at Michael's Kitchen in Taos, and The Pantry in Santa Fe, but honestly, our best meals were prepared in the spacious, well-equipped Rinconada Retreat kitchen.
Many thanks for your kind review Greg!! Our guests consistently comment on the appointments within the house the beauty of the property and Rio Grande River and the amazing amount of outdoor and cultural activities available in the area. I think you have the record for the most fish caught - congratulations. We are delighted that you fully enjoyed your visit and are always welcome to return.

Peaceful and beautiful in every way!
We were thrilled when we stepped into the retreat. There was even a basket with wine and local goodies. This lovely home and area was perfect for our cousin retreat. After exploring Santa Fe, Taos, and the surrounding enchanting area each night, we'd come back to the home and climb into the hot tub to chat and relax. We loved the decor of the home too. We're all on the creative side so the home with all its artistic touches really appealed to us. The beds were so comfortable too. We would highly recommend this place and we had detailed instructions about the area and what to do and see.
Thanks Carole - that's exactly what we like to hear!! We agree, our Rinconada Rio Grande Retreat is a very special place in an area that is so interesting to explore. Hope you can return in the future. Thanks for your kind review.

Best property in the Taos area!
I have been coming to to Taos and the surrounding area for the past 12 years. I have stayed at alot of very nice properties, both inside the city and out. The Rinconada Rio Grande retreat is by far the best property I have stayed at yet! It is well maintained both inside and out, with all the amenities you could possibly need or want. The place was spotless and very cozy with plenty of room so you never feel to crowded. Our visit was during the winter so we did not spend that much time outside, but the hot tub is great after a long day skiing! Mr. Herald is a pleasure to deal with and is extremely quick to respond to any questions. We can't wait to return for years to come!
So happy you enjoyed your stay at our Rinconada Rio Grande Retreat and that our property is at the top of your rankings for the Taos area!! As you noticed, our home is furnished for us, not as a rental. We'll look forward to your return.

Beautiful Holiday House
My young family stayed for two weeks over Christmas and New Years and the property and river looked spectacular in the fresh snow. The house and property are very spacious and while there are neighbors around, you feel like you have adequate privacy. The home is well appointed and equipped. Plenty of linens and kitchen supplies. The entryway/formal dining area is absolutely lovely and a great place to host family dinners. The kitchen is *huge* and a great spot for multiple people to prep food and eat.
The owner is responsive and thoughtful - he checked on us when a big snow storm hit and had a lovely gift basket waiting for us when we arrived. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return.
