Wonderful cozy home with plenty of space for 2 families. The kids especially loved the bunk/loft room. Owners were extremely responsive!
This place had everything we needed to have a great week of skiing. It’s just a short walk to get to the slopes.
Perfect Family Escape!
We loved staying in this chalet! Our family included adults and college-age kids and there was plenty of room for everyone. Easy to ski on/off and walk to/from the village once you know the layout of the location to the base. We recommend an SUV and we easily made it up the road and driveway. This chalet has high-end appointments and the owners have left necessities for a comfortable stay - tea, zip-loc bags, jar of candy, spices and cooking supplies - we made fabulous meals in the large kitchen. I hesitate to tell everyone how great it was in case it is booked the next time we come to Taos!
Great ski/in ski out in Taos Ski Valley
This is a great place to stay in TSV. Though there is a bit of a hike involved (like 300 yards) it is ski in/ski out.
The home is lovely and exactly as advertised. If you take the time to familiarize yourself with the owners description of the property and glean additional information the reviews, you will have a splendid time.
There are essentially 3 and 1/2 bedrooms. There’s an en-suite on the first level, a master on the second (where the kitchen living is), and a loft that includes a bunk bed (bunk is twin on top - full on bottom) a twin bed in the middle of the room and a separate room with a full bed.
This means you could easily do two families and throw the kiddos upstairs.
The kitchen is large and open and has a nice sized dining room table. It is equipped with all of the utensils and cookware you may need. There’s a good assortment of the usual spices and plenty of dishes.
The owner is very responsive and patient with questions/requests. This leads me to my piece of advice. The owner stipulates 4x4 for a reason. Taos Ski Valley wasn’t laid out with homes in mind - it’s laid out to be a perfect ski mountain. The homes are built into the extreme topography. Your vehicle must be up for the challenge. In fact, there is a sign about 600 yards down the mountain from the home that expressly states “4x4 only”.
I would say most of the time a sensible reading of this would suffice. However, if you are coming to ski- you better be ready for 4x4 low. If you’re driving a 2-W suburban and think you’re good - you’re not. You must have 4 wheel drive with a low setting in snowy conditions.
The driveway to the home is very steep and narrow (as stated in description). The road going up to the home is very steep - especially where the driveway meets the road. To get to the home you must drive past - to the next street - turn around and approach the driveway coming down the hill. You must be in your lower 4x4 gear to safely maneuver. For those familiar with the wintry alpine climate - this is nothing. It took me about 2 or 3 passes to be comfortable. After the first day - it was Childs play. Just know - we watched countless “4-wheel drive” Audi’s - etc slide right down the road. Granted it snowed almost 3 feet during our week - you just need to be prepared.
There is a 3-ring binder in the house. Read it when you get there. It answers almost all your questions.
Lastly, don’t forget - no matter the weather- pizza shack delivers 😋�.
Wonderful place for a family vacay
The property had everything you could ever need and was very comfortable and there were no tricky issues to work around. The layout has three floors, the entry floor with a laundry room and Queen bed & bath, the middle floor, another queen & bath plus the kitchen and living area & the loft has a queen bed & bath plus a spacious play area with a bunk bed and twin trundle. We had intended on having our son, his wife and two small children to stay up there as it was plenty big enough for one family, however, being a loft, there was no door and an open window that drew all sound from downstairs up so we had to abort that idea and put all of them on the bottom floor if we ever wanted the baby & toddler to nap and go down at night early. Although that switch was a little disappointing, we just rolled with it and things worked fine. The kitchen is well laid out with a nice big table that seats at least 8-10. There are games and movies, but no wifi, however, unplugging is not a bad thing when spending quality time with family which I was happy about! The owners were very accommodating and easy to reach when we had a few questions. The walk to Pioneer lift is very doable and close, but not a cakewalk, however, if you are fit enough to ski, you should be able to walk to the Pioneer. Our almost 3 year old was able to make it. In the winter, you definitely need chains or 4WD to get to the property, but it is extremely close to the ski valley which has so many new amenities since the ski property has gotten new owners. For reference, the guests were, my husband and I, our daughter and our son, his wife and 1 year old and almost 3 year old. The property & furnishings are gorgeous and updated, but extremely kid friendly. A booster seat and a gate for the stairs was provided. BTW-the stairs provided a lot of supervised entertainment & exercise for the baby and toddler! Is also an excellent location for hiking in the summer.
Great Family Retreat
We just returned from a summer stay and had an amazing time. Beautiful home in a great location. Duncan and Molly were gracious and accommodating. If you can get away with no internet access, do it. We needed internet and purchased an AT&T hot spot before we departed in hopes it would help. It worked great.
