We arrived on a cold winter evening just at dusk and after winding through the narrow dirt road in the Valdez Valley we were greeted by the outdoor lights of Dragonfly! What a lovely greeting, and from that moment on we were not disappointed. The house is lovely! So many lovely spaces. We had a great long weekend! Thanks! We will come again!

We couldn't have been more pleased..the warmth of the Dragonfly Estate welcomed us in….with a bottle of champagne and chips and salsa. We enjoyed the incredible views and quiet peaceful surroundings. We relaxed in the hot tub out on the deck and looked up at an incredible blanket of stars. Everything is top notch and beautifully decorated. Fully equipped kitchen with professional stove, LCD TVs, surround sound, multiple fireplaces, wi-fi. Everything went above and beyond our expectations. This stunning mountain home features lovely furnishings and finishes throughout as well as breathtaking mountain views from almost every room in the house. Its open and spacious layout is perfectly suited for large groups or families... you'll be vacationing in style when you stay at the Dragon Fly property is amazing! Don,t miss staying in this great Taos treasure.
