Why The Owner chose New Mexico

Taos has been our family vacation place for more than 15 years. It is a great place for winter and summer vacations. We love the place so much, that we decided to build the house and have our own place in the mountain. Taos Ski Valley is one the best kept secrets in the US. In the winter, the skiing is fantastic; there are no lift lines, expert skiers can enjoy a variety of terrain including bowls and top of the mountain terrain. Intermediate and novice skiers have great blue and green runs and one of the best ski schools in the country. In the summer, we have hiking trails, fishing, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, horse back riding; all within short distances from the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our trip was perfect - plenty of fresh snow and your place is wonderful! It is very similar to our lake house so we were quite happy. I am already talking with several family members about your place so we can plan our next visit. We have always wanted to do a big family ski trip together and your place would be perfect. I will be in touch, Jeff

The house is above and beyond all of our expectations. Rosa was a great home owner that stayed in touch with us just in case we needed anything,which we didn't. Pictures don't do this place justice. Taos ski valley too is the best place to ski hands down. Lots of good skiing with no Colorado lines. Lol. Thanks again Rosa. What a good host!!

Extraordinary Property1

  • 5 of 5

The Dreamcatcher Chalet is a terrific property that was thoughtfully designed for comfort and convenience to enjoy the beautiful Taos Ski Valley. Direct and quick access to the ski runs was excellent and the entire family thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The owners were highly responsive, very well organized and helpful throughout our stay. The photos do not do justice to the quality and spaciousness of the Dreamcatcher Chalet and we highly recommend it!

Absolute perfection

  • 5 of 5

A group of our friends (young adults late 20's/early 30's) stayed here for our annual ski trip in Jan 2016-it

was by far the best place we've ever stayed. Place has everything you could want-clean, plenty of space, hot tub, fireplace with plenty of wood, great kitchen and living areas for family meals. The owner Rosa was pleasant to deal with and a clear communicator which was helpful in planning a trip for 12 or so people. Location was ideal and is a true ski in/ski out-was a little more expensive than other options in Taos but WELL WELL worth the money. We became a little spoiled after staying here as now we are always on the quest for something as nice...and honestly I don't think many exist when it comes to ski lodging. House is even more impressive in person than the pictures. Lots of windows so you can enjoy the fact that you are literally staying on the side of the mountain. Couldn't recommend more.

A beautiful home in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet was beautiful, warm and comfortable. Our time there was perfect including the snow !

We enjoyed cooking in the fully equipped kitchen, the very relaxing, spacious living areas , and the comfortable bedrooms. Our party consisted of five adults and two children 8 and 4 years of age. We all had plenty of room and the 4 year old imagined she was Rapunzel climbing up the ladder to the top of the house, to sleep.

The ski trail to the base was very close, which was great for getting to the lifts in the morning and skiing back at the

end of the day, to relax and enjoy the hot tub.

We would certainly recommend this beautiful home and like to return to enjoy it , in the future.

What A Place!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at the chalet.

The pictures really don't do it justice. My group had two chefs in it, and they raved about the kitchen. So nice to be able to have a meal as a group and watch the snow falling on the mountain.

The living room is spacious and comfortable - we could all hang out there and "visit". We were there over Super Bowl weekend and the set up was perfect to watch the game.

Location is ski on/off, located right next to a trail, and this is not common for Taos. Really a great experience and I would highly recommend it for people looking for a great place to stay in the ski valley. We were lucky to be on the mountain as Taos was hit with 14 inches of snow while we were there. Had we stayed in the town of Taos we may not have made it up to the mountain!

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation in Taos Ski Valley this summer. We took trail rides, river rafting trips, mountain hikes, etc. and returned each day to spend time together. Dreamcatcher Chalet provided a great space for that family time. The large family room, dining area and kitchen were very well equipped and welcoming. The owners have provided those extra touches that helped us feel we were welcome guests. Our party included three generations, and the Chalet and adjoining apartment allowed us to have both the space to be together to play games, eat a family meal or watch a movie and have separate quiet space for babies to nap. The property manager was helpful and a great resource. Dreamcatcher is a fantastic place to stay and enjoy the beauty of Taos.
