Taos House Rental Photos and Description

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

My husband is a Native New Mexican, and Taos is a magical place

What makes this house unique

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

Neat location, beautiful view & cool amenities

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is about 35 min from town of Taos which is pretty convenient to go back to the town for shopping. Is maintained in a very good condition with clean spacious bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, grill, clean hot tub, indoor fire place and outdoor bonfire pit and game activities in the basement. We enjoyed our stay and recommended it to our friends.

Beautiful house; Easy access to Taos and Taos ski valley; Extraordinary views

  • 5 of 5

Warm, comfortable, spacious house, full of light with fantastic views, especially of the mountains to the east and south. House was exactly as advertised online: clean and very well-maintained. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes the combination that it offers of out-of-doors activity (hiking, skiing, rafting, mountain biking) with great sight-seeing, dining, and cultural opportunities. Beautiful hiking into the Carson National Forest in easy walking distance from front door. Hot tub at night has amazingly clear view of stars or, if you're lucky, full moon. Trails from easy to tough. Cumbres and Toltec scenic railroad with cars pulled by steam engine runs from late spring to mid-fall--wonderful even if you're not a kid. Orlando's is an excellent New Mexican restaurant about 15 minutes away. ACEQ restaurant in nearby Arroyo Seco: excellent wine, fresh local produce. Sabroso restaurant, also in tiny village of Arroyo Seco has super local/continental cuisine. The Love Apple, in Taos proper, another exceptional restaurant. Don't miss Blake's Lotaburger's chile-cheeseburger!

The house was great for us.

  • 4 of 5

The location for us was perfect since we were visiting relatives only a two minute walk away. The house was very comfortable and extremely well equipped. It was much bigger than the two of us needed so some of the rooms did not get used at all. Even though our primary reason for being there was to visit relatives it would be a great place just to sit back and relax or go hiking and spend some time in the outdoors. It was clean and well kept. Directions to get there were very precise and easy to follow but might have been a bit difficult in the dark. Our boxer loved the house and the area and would have been happy to stay longer.

The only negative we had is that the house needs some maintenance, particularly the doors and windows. We could not open some patio doors and some of the widow closures seem to be pretty worn out.

All in all it was great and we loved it.

Great property in a very spectacular setting. We loved the views!

  • 5 of 5

This house was shared by ten individuals, it worked very well with plenty of room to gather and to separate. Kitchen worked very well for cooking for ten and the table handled us easily. We would stay here again. The owner was very present via e-mail for anything we needed, house is well stocked and very comfortable. Outdoor fire pit could use some more comfortable seating, but we are all in our 60"s. . .

Thank you for a memorable stay!

If you're looking for peace and quiet this lovely home provides it!

  • 4 of 5

The location of this lovely house is in an area across the beautiful little Valdez valley. The views of the mountains and surrounding forest from the home are wonderful and the home itself is decorated to lend to the Taos feel. House has a nice layout and spacious rooms with custom features throughout, particularly in the master bathroom. We found the place to be well appointed and enjoyed amenities like books with local area information, games of foosball and using the hot tub under a star-filled sky with no light pollution. Our stay was peaceful and quiet and even included a visit from the neighbor's very friendly dog. Note that you'll want to plan for sundries before arriving as the trek in and out to "civilized" areas could be inconvenient, but it's not unpractical. So, if you're looking to get away from it all this is choice to highly consider.
