Overview

New Mexico 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.

Very nice getaway with beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice and clean. Only drawback from my family is the use of windows for AC. However, sleeping with the windows open was amazing and refreshing. Lincoln was very pleasant to deal with and provided wonderful directions. Hot tub, wifi, tv, game room, and much more. We had a great time and there was still snow on mountains in June!!

Wonderful Find!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was perfect for my family. Lincoln was very helpful with directions and questions. The minute we got there, we knew this was going to be an incredible place to stay. The home is absolutely beautiful and was very very clean. Every amenity needed was taken care of in advance. The views from the house are spectacular in all directions. My son and daughter-in-law went skiing and left their 4 and 2 year old children with us for the day. My husband and I played in the yard with them and hiked little circles around the house all day. The grand kids loved the hiking and exploring,,.and the bunk beds. I absolutely cannot say enough good about this house and appreciate all of the personal attention from Lincoln. My family has stayed in quite a few VRBO and HomeAway homes over the past few years and I would rate this home as the best of all of them in every way, The setting, the house, the owner, the amenities...all awesome. We will definitely be back!

Perfect house for us!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! The home was exactly what Linc described. It was spacious, beautiful, and fit us perfectly. There are plenty of things to use during the winter season, i.e. Snowboards, skis, sleds. My only suggestion is to get to the house before dark because it is nestled On some back roads and it's just easier to get to the first time in the daytime. But his instructions to get there are on point and after your first few times you got it down pretty much. I'll definitely be back!!

The owner, Lincoln, was amazing to work with! The house was nice and we would rent again. They even found a left wallet and contacted us to have it mailed back! Super service!

Thank you!

This is the 2nd time we stayed at the great cabin! It's in a beautiful area and came with all the amenities we needed; a well stocked kitchen, lots of room to sleep, and a hot tub. We loved it! Thanks again!
