About Trinh Le
Kent and I are from Texas and we love to go to Taos and be away from the hot and humid weather for a few days. We have also been in awe with the New Mexico landscape. After a few trips to Taos, we decided to buy a home here. As the Taos locals have told us, "The mountain is calling!" and, yes, we responded heartily by claiming it as our second home.
Why Trinh Le chose El Prado
If you like nature, you will love it at Eastern Star Retreat! The house is located just outside of town where you can truly appreciate the wide open spaces of Taos. At Eastern Star Retreat, you'll enjoy the 360 unhindered view of the Taos mountains. The Taos county, itself, stretches over 50 square miles. The average number of sunny days is 300/365. It has a mixture of diverse cultures that include that of Native Americans, Spanish and Anglo. Taos offers all kinds of outdoor activities all year round. The options are endless: e.g., skiing, snow boarding, snow shoeing, rafting, kayaking, hiking, golfing, horseback riding, biking, and hot air ballooning. Even if you are not as much of an outdoor sport enthusiast as you would like to be (i.e., like some of us), you'd still enjoy sitting back on the porch and soaking in the beautiful weather, pristine setting, and majestic mountain views. Personally, I feel blessed whenever I am there.

Great for small family
The property was nice. Only a 30-45 min drive to taos or hr to angel fire. Very nice location overall. No need for 4x4 during our stay in feb. We had a small issue with dishwasher and had almost immediate solution from owner. Really great time with kids. Everything we needed to cook was available and even a couple toiletries we forgot were available too. Would stay here again with family for sure. There were 2 couples and 2 kids with plenty of space for our stay.
The property is awesome. Great views. Plenty of space. Fun set up. They provide a lot. The kitchen appliances were a dream. Would absolutely come back! Thank you!
Taos Ski Trip
We had a fantastic stay at Eastern Star Retreat. The house is comfortable, spacious and beautifully decorated. The home has everything we needed for a family ski trip. The the kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of board games. The kids had fun playing the snow in the yard. Also, the views of the mountains are amazing!! The home is conveniently located to get into town, the ski resorts and the trails in Carson National Forest. After a long day of skiing or hiking, it felt wonderful to soak in the hot tub. It's our third stay in this home and my family were so happy to be back. We love visiting Taos and staying at the Eastern Star Resort.
Thank you so much for your repeated visits. We’re proud that Eastern Star Retreat has been one of your favorite family vacation destinations!
Yes, Yes and YES !
What an amazing home! Our family of 8 was blown away by the views. Plenty of room with every amenity we needed. Beautifully decorated and centrally located for all kinds of fun In New Mexico! Can’t wait to visit again. Thank you
Very comfortable and clean
We enjoyed our family vacation at Eastern Star and the accommodations were very comfortable with lots of special touches. Views of the snowy mountains were spectacular, and we had plenty of room.
HOT AIR BALLOONING
Hot Air Balloons in Taos offer a unique experience where you can enjoy the view of the vast and mountainous landscape, and the rugged earth and winding water ways of the Rio Grande below. When inflating, it is noisy. But, once aloft, you'll be at awe with nature as you glide in the air. You'll feel the serenity, calmness that is uncommon in our busy daily lives and so refreshing! At the same time, a hot air balloon ride can be an exhilarating experience as you float high in the air and then dip down into the Rio Grande Gorge.
Flights usually take off in the early morning, at sunrise. Dress warm. Taos ballooning companies offer balloon safety and flight lesson, including firing off the burners and flying the balloon. If you wish, you can take the lesson. But, most just enjoy letting the pilot have the control and are there just for the ride.
