About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Our Taos home is conveniently located on a quiet, private 1/3 acre cul-de-sac lot southwest of the Historic Plaza. It has a great location, just an 8 minute walk to the Plaza where you will find shops, art galleries, museums, bookstores and restaurants. You can head north 20 miles to the world famous Taos Ski Basin (now allowing snowboarding) or take short drives to the Taos pueblo, Rio Grande gorge and the Taos Country Club championship golf course.

Our home has great views of the surrounding mountains and our private yard contains: two portals; a new 6 person outdoor hot tub (a must after a day on the slopes or a round at the golf course); plus a 15 x 15 ft. elevated deck on which to relax and watch Taos Mountain sunrises and sunsets. If you are into outdoor cooking we have two charcoal Weber grills for your back yard barbeque.

This truly is a home-away-from-home, which has been thoughtfully and tastefully furnished. The house has gorgeous tile floors, and unique southwestern touches throughout. The well equipped kitchen features Mexican tiled counter tops, modern appliances, and custom cabinets. The oak dining table easily seats eight. The living room has an entertainment center, skylight and a wood burning fireplace. We recently replaced all windows and the patio door with double panes.

The master bedroom has a private 3/4 bath and two additional bedrooms share a full bath. The master and 2nd bedrooms have queen sized beds while the 3rd bedroom has twin beds.

The den/studio serves as a “getaway area” used as an artists studio, home office, or kids play area and also has a twin day bed.

There is a washer/dryer convenient to the bedrooms. We have a one car garage plus plenty of off street parking.

Wireless high speed internet is available throughout the house.

We have a local Property Manager who greets our guests and handles any questions or issues that may arise.

If you have a group larger than the seven people accommodated by our house, we have access to a second home next door. With proper advance notice we may be able to combine the two homes to meet your additional needs.

About The Owner

The Owners of this property are Louise and Ed Mackay. We live in Minnesota and have a vacation home in Taos that we offer for short term vacation rentals when we are not visiting there. We have a local Property Manager who is responsible for checking our place to ensure that everything is in excellent condition prior to the arrival of guests. Our Property Manager meets all guests upon arrival, provides keys to the house and introduces them to our comfortable home. She is also available to answer any questions that arise during their visit.

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

Why The Owner chose New Mexico

We first came to Taos about twenty years ago and loved the variety of things to do here as well as the history and culture of the area. Twelve years ago, we were very fortunate to be able to buy a second home in the same cul-de-sac as good Taos friends and next door to my brother. We just loved the convenient location.

What makes this house unique

Skiing, golfing, walking to Plaza, numerous restaurants and nightly entertainment, shopping, artists, sun rises and sun sets, views of the mountain, hiking along the gorge, visiting the pueblo, viewing the stars from the hot tub.

Excellent Home Away!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 17 days in this very comfortable home. The living room is open and bright because of the large windows looking out to a pretty Taos sky. Every amenity you will need is provided. We watched the stars (and eclipse!) from the backyard deck. If you are there in summer you'll be able to pick apples to enjoy-we had just a few at the end of the season in Oct. The owners Ed and Louise were very accommodating and easy to work with via email.

Good Hub Location

  • 4 of 5

We had two families made up of friends from college and our respective younger children. It was great being able to boot the kids out into the yard to play. The 3rd room with a futon next to the garage worked well as an office space. Comfy house for the price, in a good location.

Great Place in Taos

  • 5 of 5

Family of 5 spent a week between Christmas 2014/New Years 2015, place is great. Very clean and centrally located while still on quiet, very picturesqe street. 35 minutes from Taos Ski Valley, less than 5 minutes from the center of Taos. Hot tub and fireplace works great. Would definitely stay here again, recommend highly.

Great family Christmas ski house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Christmas vacation at this house. We felt at home from the moment we arrived. We had a family of six and everyone had a bed and enough privacy. Even though the kitchen is small we never felt crowded and it is equipped with all the appliances and utensils you will ever need for cooking. Evenings after skiing in the hot tub and gathering around the cozy fire place made our trip perfect. The washer and dryer came in very handy for wet ski socks and gear. The house is walking distance to the plaza, even in snowy days, and it's only 3 minutes away from the grocery store. Even though the house is not on the slopes the 1/2 hr drive to Taos Ski mountain and Sipapu Ski Resort is very doable. Communication with the owners was fantastic. They answered all our questions and gave us additional information that made our stay absolutely perfect. We highly recommend this house for your stay in Taos any time of year. Happy travels!

Perfect house for a family skiing at Taos Ski Valley

  • 5 of 5

We have a family of six: me, my husband, 15 yo son, 7 yo daughter, and 5 yo twins. All four of the kids are beginnerish skiers and I was worried about going to Taos b/c it is a fairly aggressive mountain, but they all had a fantastic time and I cannot say enough good things about the ski school and the ski lessons.

The house was perfect for us. Kitchen very functional (even had a coffee grinder!), which is good b/c we eat dinner in and cook hearty breakfasts. The hot tub was perfect after a day of skiing, and the bathrooms were updated. They make sure to have the important things, like lovely sheets. Close to downtown, which would have been fun if we did not have so many kids in tow… :-)

We hope to return in future years. Highly recommend this property.

Unexpected plus

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in your home in Taos. It is very unprepossessing on the outside; the interior is a real gem.

An unintended benefit was the terrific collection of books-- fiction and nonfiction on the shelves. I especially enjoyed sampling from them.

We equally enjoyed lounging and cooking and taking in the sights in Taos and near by.
