roy dunlap purchased this house in 2008

Why roy dunlap chose Taos

We like being close to town, yet in a quiet corner near the National Forest. We were used to living in the country and it took for ever to find a house in which we were not staring at the neighbors. The house and grounds are a retreat. We had dreamed of coming to Taos for 15 years and finally bought a this house, retired and made the big move. We moved out of town to follow through on an investment but remain attached to Hacienda Pinon.

What makes this house unique

We have enjoyed entertaining our friends and family in a spacious house that has separate areas to have privacy. Adults can enjoy a fire in the living room while the young ones watch TV in family room. My favorite time of day is dusk as the temperature drops, the mountains splash with color and we enjoy a meal outside on the deck.

I remember a guest from the heat of Texas asking whether the house was air conditioned. Actually,even in the midst of summer, the house will stay at a pleasant temperature if one lets the cool evening breezes through the house at night and closes doors and windows in the morning

Guestbook comments from the owner

The reviews are outdated because Hacienda Pinon has been off the rental market for 4 years. We hope to begin to accumulate good reviews as we did in the past.

Gurule Family experience at Hacienda Pinion

  • 5 of 5

Every year our family gets together to participate in our personal coined event "Tour de Las Tablas", and we enjoy staying in Taos since we grew up in Tres Piedras, NM. Taos is going home for us, since we are scattered all over the U.S.

In the past five years that we have been getting together for our annual event, Hacienda Pinion exceeded hospitality of all the other places we had stayed at in previous years. It was perfect for us in every way, the owners were there to greet us and extremely friendly and helpful; everything that comes to mind when you truly experience the "Taoseno hospitality". If you have dogs, it is the perfect place to stay because the acreage around the property is state of the art and your pets are safe and secure. My only recommendation would be that the markings on the entrance be marked clearer, as we missed the drive way a few times when we initially arrived. Other than that, it was perfect and we were truly able to relax and enjoy our stay. The house and property were clean and well-maintained. I would definintely recommend this place.

Owner's Response: We have marked the road with reflectors, have added an address plaque at the entrance, have a detailed map sent before arrival and plan to illuminate the entrance for nightime visitors. We appreciate the favorable comments and suggestions of how we can improve the vacation experience.

Beautiful and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Taos before, so we knew what type of property we were looking for and this one was perfect. It is secluded with beautiful views, but close to downtown if you decide to venture out. Carson National Forest and the Pueblo are also very close by and worth visiting.

Because of the heavily treed property, the bird watching was endless. Owner was responsive and easy to work with. We would stay here again!

Amazing hacienda in the Taos foothills

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time at the Hacienda Pinon. The location is perfect - less than two miles from the plaza, quick to get to either end of Taos, yet the home feels like you are in a secluded retreat up in the hills surrounded by trees. Massive kitchen/living/dining area - perfect for the family to be together while we cooked. Everything you need in a kitchen to cook and serve meals. Each morning we opened all of the doors to let the breeze through the house and to listen to the water feature in the courtyard.

The outside area is the best with the large porch area - complete with a dining table, grill, couch and chairs. We loved the early mornings and evenings porch. We could even hear the Plaza music Thurs night. :) The hot tub was great - we used it after rafting and hiking days - watched the stars and meteors.

Beds were comfortable, everything was extremely clean. The owners were fantastic - provided hiking ideas and restaurant suggestions.

Things we enjoyed - The Fire Playce (paining pottery), fly fishing, hiking to Williams Lake and down the Taos Ski runs, Los Rios Outfitters - Rio Grande middlebox in inflatable kayaks, The Burger Stand, Taos Diner for breakfast, Orlando's, Michael's Kitchen for lunch.

We will definitely be back.

There is not one thing we would change. Perfection for us and much more than we expected. Owners are delightful. Brought our animals and they were welcome. Loved the privacy and decor of the

Casita. Kitchen was much used as was the deck.

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

This house is blessed with magic, love and beauty! Our family is large and boisterous but this house provided plenty of room to contain the excitement of teenagers, young adults, our smaller children and one very happy puppy as we played games at night and talked about our adventures on the slopes, on the trails, and out and about the town. My husband--the quiet newcomer to the family--enjoyed being able to escape for some quiet reverence in the casita, my sister-in law enjoyed cooking delicious meals in the large kitchn, and we all enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub, surrounded by the natural landscape. Thank you for the trip of a lifetime.

Beautiful home in Taos

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hacienda Pinon just after Christmas through the New Year. The house was even more beautiful than the photographs revealed and offered more than we expected. The owners provided every amenity plus extras: festive Christmas decorations; luminarias on the deck railings; a beautiful, large, well-equipped kitchen; robes and slippers to wear after the relaxing soaks in the hot tub we enjoyed after skiing each day in near-by Taos Ski Valley.

We are a three-generation family and the house was ideal. The large rooms offered privacy (teens), were beautifully and comfortably furnished with quiet corners for uninterrupted reading and lovely views of the mountains beyond. Even though we were only a mile or so outside of town, the complete privacy of the multi-acre property gave us a sense of peace and contentment not often found in a vacation rental. We would love to experience Hacienda Pinon during summer or fall when we could spend time outside on the wide, covered decks with views to the valley below. We would recommend this home to any family or group of friends looking for an exceptional setting for their visit.
