Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11-12)

This house is just 1/2 mile below the Kachina Lift on the main road.

This is a private home high up in Taos Ski Valley. This home is perfect for your family trip to Taos Ski Valley. Our home is one of the rare houses near the upper lift (kachina) at Taos, Only 1/2 mile below the lift on the road to the Bavarian. With the hiking, biking and skiing trails just outside your doors. Walking to and from the ski trails downhill both ways, but it is a steep walk so we suggest parking in one of the lots. There are plenty of mountain activities in both summer and winter, with the museums and shops of the historic town of Taos only 25 min away there are plenty of activities for all. This house has all the benefits of being in the ski valley, yet is secluded from the condos and noise of the village. Your own private high mountain retreat.

In the summer this home has direct access to just under 30 miles of the most challenging single track mountain biking in the country, with trails all the way to the top of Bull of the Woods mountain, above 12,000 feet. Walk directly out the door for a hike on the Williams lake trail to summit Wheeler peak, the highest mountain in New Mexico. Please note, this property is only accessed by a 4 WD vehicle in the winter. This the perfect high altitude rocky mountain retreat.

Keywords: Downhill walk to and from different trails. One of the few houses near upper lift at Taos. Less than one half mile below the Bavarian.Ski. Walk to trails.

About Jamie

We are local New Mexico residents who enjoy the outdoor lifestyle and activities of the souther rocky mountains. Feel free to ask about the many wonderful and fun things there are to do in the area.

Jamie purchased this house in 2010

Why Jamie chose Taos Ski Valley

Taos Ski Valley has some of the most challenging and rewarding skiing and mountain biking available. With the additional hiking, fishing, rafting, museums, shopping and endless other activities in this unique part of the world, there is plenty of recreation for the whole family. We bought this property because we love Taos, yet the home is secluded high in the mountains for a retreat from the hustle and bustle of town. You get the feeling that you are high in a secluded mountain lodge, yet it is a short drive on a well maintained road to town. If you love recreation in the mountains, or the unique culture, shopping or many galleries of the the Taos area, you will love this home.

What makes this house unique

This house is high above the hustle and bustle of the new village with pristine mountain views and quite mountain living.

Fair price for fair place

A bit dated. Would be difficult to get to in heavy winter (no real snow when we were there). Definitely need to drive to base . Parking marginal. Kitchen barely equipped. View nice. Needs some tlc

Great ski house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay over President's Day week. Two couples and kids fit comfortably in the cabin. It's close to skiing yet quiet and secluded. My kids spent a lot of time building snow caves and hanging out in the hot tub. The kitchen is well appointed and easy use. The skiing was great this year, parents and kids had a blast! Make sure you enjoy a lunch on the Bavarian deck which is close to the house. The cabin was clean, owners were easy to deal with and we will hopefully return next year.

Fantastic Multifunctional Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home for large groups, romantic getaway's and everything in between. We stayed there once with two other couples and their families (at total of 6 adults, 6 kids) and had a fantastic time. So good in fact, that we have now gone back several times with our kids and on our own. The house has accommodated each group perfectly. The location is great, especially in the summer/fall with easy access to many great trails. The house was immaculate when we arrived and is clearly well maintained by the owners. The hot tub, is a wonderful amenity-a real treat after a day of hiking or skiing. Overall, we would highly recommend this house!

Most important of all... the beds are very comfortable, we never ran out of hot water, and the hot tub is awesome! I hope we can come back during ski season!! Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Great Digs in Taos.

Wow, Killer pad, really enjoyed our stay. The house is very clean and recently renovated with all the amenities for the ski centric family. The house sleeps 10 very comfortably and is in close proximity to lift access. Loved the Hot tub at the end of the day . Thanks for an awesome visit and making renting in Taos so easy. Will be back for sure!
