Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Situated on two private acres among pinion, juniper, and Ponderosa pines in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Range, this newly-built(2003), three bedroom plus house is a perfect spot to relax after a long day spent skiing or seeing the many sights of Taos.

This is a hand-crafted, custom-built, Non-Smoking home with Southwest touches such as coved plaster ceilings, log vigas, and the traditional Northern New Mexico-style pitched roof. The house’s many windows are oriented to frame the mountain views and embrace the New Mexico sun with a warm southern exposure that heats and brightens the house all winter. The large south-facing deck on the main level and the two private upper balconies can be enjoyed all year. A full-length covered porch on the north side stays cool through the summer months and provides plenty of room to stomp off snow in the winter.

The house is located north of the town of Taos (nine miles), off the road to the Taos Ski Valley (eight miles). The elevation is estimated to be 7900 feet - which means cool and refreshing nights even in the heat of the New Mexico summer.

Inside, there are three bedrooms: the master bedroom downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. One upstairs room has a lovely view of the Taos Ski Valley mountain, and is furnished with a queen bed. The other bedroom has twin beds and an optional futon double mattress for additional guests. Both upstairs rooms have large private balconies with southern views of the Truchas mountain range. The entire first floor has vigas with coved ceilings, and French doors opening onto the large south deck. The master bathroom has a large tub with a picture window framing a view of pine trees. The living room has a large fireplace, for nights before the roaring fire. The living room also has a queen-size sofa bed for extra sleeping capacity. The attractive kitchen has a Jenn-Air range and granite tile countertops, and is fully-equipped for most cooking needs.

There is an outdoor Jacuzzi tub for skiers to soak away the effects of a long day on the slopes. Taos Ski Valley is near our house, and Angel Fire is a short drive in the other direction. In winter, snow often blankets our property and there is a sledding slope for kids near the driveway. In summer, you are encouraged to bring your mountain bikes to explore the trails reached directly from our house.

NOTE: Our house is reached by a 1.9 mile county-maintained dirt road (Gallina Canyon Road). Depending on the time of year, a four-wheel drive vehicle may be recommended due to snow conditions.

Why Lincoln B Quintana chose New Mexico

There is nothing like New Mexico! Skiing, hiking, Taos Pueblo, Taos Plaza, rafting the Rio Grande, eating green chile, relaxing in the hot tub while snow falls

Great get away for our family of 6

Our family of 6 enjoyed our stay. We had plenty of room for everyone. Our favorite features were the ping pong table and hot tub

We hope to return again.

Wonderful home for large groups!

This house was a perfect fit for our large group. Having 4 bathrooms was a huge plus. We will definitely book this house again on any future family trips.

Roomy and well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at La Quinta Especial. We are only a small family, but it could easily accommodate more than 12 people. It is big and comes with lots of necessities and amenities that made our stay enjoyable, such as abundant firewood, ping pong and foosball tables, dart board, etc. It is easy accessible to Taos, but also serene and beautiful in the foothills of the mountains. Thanks, Linc!

Could not have asked for a better stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much! The kids loved it and so did the adults. I loved the remoteness and quiet. The house was beautiful and comfortable. Owner was super nice and helpful. I love our yearly vacations and are happy we chose this place. We played, ventured out, hiked, rafted (for the first time ever) on the Rio Grande. We swam at John Dunn Bridge. Thank you for allowing us to stay!

Loved our summer stay at the casa!

  • 5 of 5

This place is such a gem. Well stocked kitchen, towels, and linens. Has all the amenities of home plus some (dishwasher, washer, dryer, TV with DVR, wifi, comfy beds, & nice hot showers). Sleeps many. We thoroughly enjoyed the fire pit and hot tub at the end of the day. Fire wood was supplied as well. The kids loved the ping pong and foosball tables. Lots of great memories were created here.

Lincoln was a great host and gave the scoop on local eateries and things to do along with how to keep the casa cool during the day since there is no AC. The weather was nice and it was no trouble. Great location and was just a short drive to Taos or Red River.

Would definitely recommend this gem!
