About Trinh Le
Kent and I are from Texas and we love to go to Taos and be away from the humid weather for a few days. We have also been in awe with the New Mexico landscape. After a few trips to Taos, we decided to buy a home here. As one of the Taos locals told us, "The mountain is calling!" and, yes, we responded heartily by claiming it as our second home.
Why Trinh Le chose El Prado
If you like nature, you will love it at Eastern Star Retreat! The house is located just outside of town where you can truly appreciate the wide open spaces of Taos. At Eastern Star Retreat, you'll enjoy the 360 unhindered view of the Taos mountains. The Taos county, itself, stretches over 50 square miles. The average number of sunny days is 300/365. It has a mixture of diverse cultures that include that of Native Americans, Spanish and Anglo. Taos offers all kinds of outdoor activities all year round. The options are endless: e.g., skiing, snow boarding, snow shoeing, rafting, kayaking, hiking, golfing, horseback riding, biking, and hot air ballooning. Even if you are not as much of an outdoor sport enthusiast as you would like to be (i.e., like some of us), you'd still enjoy sitting back on the porch and soaking in the beautiful weather, pristine setting, and majestic mountain views. Personally, I feel blessed whenever I am there.
What makes this House unique
Guests frequently tell us they love our 2nd story gazebo! It provides a truly unique view of the Taos' mountains and valleys. They also love our large hot tub ...such a wonderful way to get a massage, pain relief, or simply relaxing entertainment .

Great Taos get away
Beautiful home, very comfortable, clean and well appointed. Stayed with my kids and parents. Loved having two “masters”.
Beautiful home in a beautiful location.
The house was absolutely beautiful. Was about 30 minutes from anywhere we wanted to be. Was equipped with all the necessities. Didn't need anything. Would book it again!
Perfect summer get-away or winter retreat!
What a wonderful property, just a short drive from Taos pueblo and the plaza shops yet secluded with a great view of the mountains. Impeccable furnishings, comfortable bedding, and more than enough kitchen ware to cook if you prefer to eat in. The ski village is fairly close, and the runs looked top-notch. We hiked the gorge and visited Puye Cliffs, which were about 40 minutes away but worth the travel time. There is so much to see and do in the area, but the home is so cozy you will be tempted to relax in the hot tub or read a book by the fire. We will definitely visit again!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. There are indeed so many sights to see and things do in, around, and nearby Taos. Yet, it is just as wonderful to never leave the house and relax/decompress by soaking in the scenery. The mountain is calling! Come back anytime!
Beautiful Setting, Beautiful Home
We stayed for the week of Thanksgiving and the house was not only beautiful it worked perfectly for our group of 5. We did a fair amount of cooking and the kitchen was perfect - lovely that we had a gas stove. The view out the front of the home is stunning. We had wished the view from the tower would have been as stunning looking west, but neighbors on the other side of the road have some rail cars there for construction. It didn't diminish our enjoyment of the home and I would highly recommend it. It is tastefully designed with just the right artistic touches to make it feel so special. Thanks to Trinh for such an amazing place and making it available to the rest of us to enjoy. Don't hesitate to book this beauty!
Thank you for your positive review. We are glad that you and your companions enjoyed your stay. From our previous communication, we very much agree with your statement that "Rising to the mountains each morning was a true blessing" as we feel the same way everytime we are there.
Eastern Star Retreat is located on 3 acres of land and it provides vast and unobstructed views of the Taos mountains. The tower offers a 360 degree view of the home's surrounding area. At least 270 of the view from the tower is the view of the Taos mountain range which is primarily situated to the east of home. At ground level, the home has banks of windows and portals (patios) facing east, hence, they also provides the best views of the mountain range.
The few neighbors that are visible from the home are several hundred feet away. The neighbor that is closest to Eastern Star Retreat is across the street, in the opposite direction of the Taos mountain range. This is the neighbor that has the storage containers behind their fence, on their property. This neighbor faces the valley below, Lower Las Colonias, which is well over 1000 ft drop from Eastern Star Retreat's street level.
From our tower, a view of the Lower Las Colonias valley can be seen at a distance. Views of Taos mountains from Eastern Star Retreat are unhindered.
Another Visit, Another Great Stay
We continue to come back to Eastern Star Retreat, and continue to love being there. For us, this is a place to heal and relax and take in all that is Taos. It is close to everything, but not in the middle of any of it. Thanks for another great stay.
Beautiful interior, views and great location
We greatly enjoyed our stay in this lovely home and hope to stay again in the future
HOT AIR BALLOONING Hot Air Balloons in Taos offer a unique experience where you can enjoy the view of the vast and mountainous landscape, and the rugged earth and winding water ways of the Rio Grande below. When inflating, it is noisy. But, once aloft, you'll be at awe with nature as you glide in the air. You'll feel the serenity, calmness that is uncommon in our busy daily lives and so refreshing! At the same time, a hot air balloon ride can be an exhilarating experience as you float high in the air and then dip down into the Rio Grande Gorge. Flights usually take off in the early morning, at sunrise. Dress warm. Taos ballooning companies offer balloon safety and flight lesson, including firing off the burners and flying the balloon. If you wish, you can take the lesson. But, most just enjoy letting the pilot have the control and are there just for the ride.
