Taos house description

Please call 575 613 5027 for reservation information.

Sitting on several wooded acres and nestled at the foot of the majestic Sangre De Cristo mountain range, Las Posadas El Salto is Northern New Mexico’s ultimate vacation home. This architect designed custom built mountain adobe chalet boasts an incredible view of Taos Valley to the West, and to the East an awe inspiring view of Taos Mountain and El Salto peak normally reserved for the pages of your favorite travel magazine!

Imagine waking up in the morning to fresh mountain air, while taking in your “100 mile” view of the Taos Valley from your 800 square foot balcony, located just outside the master bedroom. Soak away stress in your private hot-tub or settle into a plush sofa and watch your favorite movie on one of 2 flat-screen televisions fully connected to Satellite, DVD and XBOX. Cook your meals and entertain guests using your spacious and fully equipped gourmet kitchen or head 2 miles down the road for dinner in the quaint mountain village of Arroyo Seco. Your home comes with high speed Wi-Fi internet access and even a small business center so that you take care of your clients and get right back to enjoying your mountain getaway.
Conveniently located 8 miles from downtown Taos, and 8 miles from the world renowned slopes of Taos Ski Valley; you will not find a better place to serve as a hub for the endless wonders of Taos New Mexico and the surrounding areas. It doesn’t matter if you are a first time visitor, or a seasoned traveler to Taos. Los Posadas El Salto will provide you with the vacation experience of a lifetime.

We know our fellow travelers have a lot of vacation rental options in and around Taos. We believe all they need to do is watch our beautifully shot video tour of the house and its private forested surroundings and read our reviews from past guests and they can picture themselves in one of the best family getaways in Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall in Northern NM.

(Please scroll down and click on video of this property below the Further details line on the web page)

We hear over and over again that when guests arrive and relax at the house, they feel the weight of hectic life schedules and stress and demands lifted. This is one of the most peaceful and quiet settings in Taos. Most properties here have the noise of some road or highway or other city type sounds. At Las Posadas El Salto all you hear is the wind singing through the tall pines and snow falling on cedars in winter.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1996

                          About the owner: As designers and builders from California and New Mexico. We finally found a place where we could create and build the Green/Eco type of structure that would compliment the beauty of the land. New mexico is so famous for allowing artisans to choose different materials and construction types. It just made sense to make this home in El Salto.

                          Why the Owner Chose Taos:
                          If you have the chance to read our reviews or if you are a seasoned Taos local, you will already know that this area of Taos called El Salto is the best place to live in the Taos valley. It is the most desirable and expensive real estate in Taos County.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          As we have said.' El Salto is the best area in Taos'. The forest, the quiet, the deep snows in the winter and cool temps in the Summer make it so magical any time of year. Just ask any local about El Salto.
