Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Situated on two private acres among pinion, juniper, and Ponderosa pines in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Range, this newly-built(2003), three bedroom plus house is a perfect spot to relax after a long day spent skiing or seeing the many sights of Taos.

This is a hand-crafted, custom-built, Non-Smoking home with Southwest touches such as coved plaster ceilings, log vigas, and the traditional Northern New Mexico-style pitched roof. The house’s many windows are oriented to frame the mountain views and embrace the New Mexico sun with a warm southern exposure that heats and brightens the house all winter. The large south-facing deck on the main level and the two private upper balconies can be enjoyed all year. A full-length covered porch on the north side stays cool through the summer months and provides plenty of room to stomp off snow in the winter.

The house is located north of the town of Taos (nine miles), off the road to the Taos Ski Valley (eight miles). The elevation is estimated to be 7900 feet - which means cool and refreshing nights even in the heat of the New Mexico summer.

Inside, there are three bedrooms: the master bedroom downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. One upstairs room has a lovely view of the Taos Ski Valley mountain, and is furnished with a queen bed. The other bedroom has twin beds and an optional futon double mattress for additional guests. Both upstairs rooms have large private balconies with southern views of the Truchas mountain range. The entire first floor has vigas with coved ceilings, and French doors opening onto the large south deck. The master bathroom has a large tub with a picture window framing a view of pine trees. The living room has a large fireplace, for nights before the roaring fire. The living room also has a queen-size sofa bed for extra sleeping capacity. The attractive kitchen has a Jenn-Air range and granite tile countertops, and is fully-equipped for most cooking needs.

There is an outdoor Jacuzzi tub for skiers to soak away the effects of a long day on the slopes. Taos Ski Valley is near our house, and Angel Fire is a short drive in the other direction. In winter, snow often blankets our property and there is a sledding slope for kids near the driveway. In summer, you are encouraged to bring your mountain bikes to explore the trails reached directly from our house.

NOTE: Our house is reached by a 1.9 mile county-maintained dirt road (Gallina Canyon Road). Depending on the time of year, a four-wheel drive vehicle may be recommended due to snow conditions.

Why Lincoln B Quintana chose Taos

My husband is a Native New Mexican, and Taos is a magical place

What makes this house unique

There is nothing like New Mexico! Skiing, hiking, Taos Pueblo, Taos Plaza, rafting the Rio Grande, eating green chile, relaxing in the hot tub while snow falls

Beautiful, quiet, spacious comfortable house with fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

Faultlessly maintained--and well-stocked--house, close to Taos ski valley, the town itself, the Taos pueblo, and a great place for day (or overnight) hikes, either from the front door up to the Carson National Forest or on other trails in the immediate area or as far away as Bandelier/Santa Fe area. Very relaxing: we stayed there immediately after returning from Asia: no jet lag!

Fantastic house in a very scenic area

  • 4 of 5

Great place and Linc is a great host, however, the place is somewhat of a trek from Taos and some of the sights.

A Relaxing Oasis with Access to Everything

  • 5 of 5

The house was a relaxing oasis, away from it all up Gallinas Canyon Road, but still close enough to easily access everything: Taos Ski Valley, Taos, the Rio Grande, and all of northern New Mexico.

The house is modern and lacking for nothing. There's ample room for a family to spread out, and comfortable furnishings in every room to make the stay enjoyable. The back deck and the two private balconies have 50 mile views during the day, and unobstructed views of a truly dark sky at night.

Linc is an outstanding, attentive host, without being intrusive. On the few occasions that we had an issue, he was on top of it within hours, making all things right quickly.

We unhesitatingly recommend this place, and hope to go back ourselves in weeks and months to come.

Our family of 6 enjoyed our stay. We had plenty of room for everyone. Our favorite features were the ping pong table and hot tub

Wonderful home for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a perfect fit for our large group. Having 4 bathrooms was a huge plus. We will definitely book this house again on any future family trips.
