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

Loved the layout of the house

  • 4 of 5

Our group had a great time and loved the layout of the house. Two couples and 3 solo dudes the configuration was perfect! Plenty of cooking supplies in the kitchen and plenty of space for 7-10 people! Getting to the house is definitely an adventure in the dark so plan accordingly! Great scenic location near Taos ski valley!

White Christmas...

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to convey our appreciation to Lincoln for allowing us to rent the house over Christmas break. We had such a wonderful time, and your house made this trip an epic adventure for our family, with memories that will last a lifetime. Lincoln quickly responded to all of our questions, and with two families, we did have a few. Th kitchen was FULLY packed with every utensil and dish you would need for two full families. The grand views and location were magical to say the least. Our kids have never experienced a white Christmas, and they/we will always recall this trip for many years to come. Thankl you for making it all so special!

20 minutes to Taos Ski Valley

45 minutes to Red River Ski Resort

1 hour to Angel Fire

We took the enchantment circle and that took about 5 hours to go through all the sports... but it was beautiful! This was a great home, and in the middle of all that we wanted to see and experience.

Thanks again!

Best in Show

  • 5 of 5

If you want a beautiful, quiet, clean, and spacious retreat close to Taos and very close to the Taos ski valley, this is the place. Deck looks out to distant mountains, the same view from kitchen and upstairs bedrooms. Set back among tall ponderosa pines, the house is well-stocked, and easily accessible. We hiked a short distance to the national forest and from there the trails are extensive ranging from easy to difficult. There are hot springs at the close-by Rio Grande, and the bridge over the river's gorge has spectacular views.

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!
