Our trip to Taos New Mexico, was one of our best trips ever. The landscapes are breathtaking. Luellens place was perfect, and she is very easy to deal with. She responds promptly to any questions. The views are spectacular from every room, and the master bath is one of a kind. I highly recommend this place. I would love to see this place in the winter!

This house was AMAZING! It was private, relaxing and has amazing views. We especially enjoyed the hot tub, the lagoon like bathtub in the master room and the super soft sheets on the bed. The owners were incredibly helpful and even provided a humidifier when our lil guy was having some coughing issues. They also had a pack n play set up with sheets! Restaurant recommendations were perfect and the whole stay was truly a special experience!! Highly recommend!!

Great place to basecamp for a ski trip

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice, super clean and provided us with spectacular views. We skied Taos Ski Valley (30 minute drive) or Angel Fire (45 minute drive) and rushed back to take a hot tub at sunset. Many great restaurants and breweries within a ten minute drive. The beds were comfortable and shower in the master suite was very relaxing. Though the owners house is attached, there is ample privacy and we only ran into them once. We liked the binder of information and tips. Highly recommended.

An Anniversary We Won't Soon Forget

  • 5 of 5

We picked this place because of the beautiful pictures and the amenities. We were not disappointed. Being a "want-a-be" photographer, it was a beautiful place to take pictures. The inside is decorated so nicely and had everything we could possibly need, and more.

I'm sure the owners are great people although we never got to meet them. They certainly honored our privacy.

All in all it was a great couple of days and we would highly recommend it to anyone. We hope to retire again sometime soon.
