Ridgerunner Lodge: Affordable Taos Ski Valley Resort

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

A rare home in this market! Nestled beside the Carson National Forest in the Village of Taos Ski Valley with incredible views, a few steps to fly fishing the Rio Hondo, spacious accommodations. This is an authentic log cabin -- updated to provide comfort -- with an expansive upstairs loft, one outbuilding that holds a game room, a second studio outbuilding for quiet retreats (sleeps two) and complete mountainside privacy. Master bedroom with queen bed, two queens and two twins in the upstairs loft, and two twins in the studio. Wood-burning stove (worry not -- the home has central heat) -- full kitchen, and (of course!) a hot tub for relaxing after a day of enjoying your mountain resort experience.

Spread out in the pet-friendly main house, enjoy a movie on your DirectTV satellite service, or settle in for a Foosball challenge in the game room. Your secluded back porch holds the hot tub and offers among the most majestic mountain views on earth. The kids can take over the loft, play a movie or a round of scrabble while you unwind downstairs. The living room offers lounging comfort and more views. Washer and dryer located on the main floor, and full amenities make an extended stay inviting. This home is available for a three night minimum, and long-term guests are also welcomed at affordable rates.

Venturing out into the world of this all-season mountain resort is also a pleasure from here. At the entrance to the resort, you have easy access to a full array of shops and restaurants. Enjoy fine dining at the Bavarian, St. Bernard or Edelweiss or, sink your teeth into to the famous burgers and green chile stew at the Stray Dog. Taos is known not to mention world class skiing, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking and snowshoeing.

Your stay begins even before you arrive, in the hands of professional, on-site management. You will have contact information giving you access to immediate attention, 24/7, from a caretaker located only minutes away.

Please call or email your reservation today -- this home rents early for most major holidays, festivals and events because of its size. And we are ready to answer any questions, or just chat about the home, at any time.

Overall, Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Ridgerunner Cabin. It was nice and the lay out was perfect for our needs. Plenty of bedding and blankets and the temperature was easy to keep regulated. The only thing I'd warn others of is that it is a bit lacking in being totally stocked for a large group of 10. There weren't enough coffee mugs, nor wine glasses. We made due, as we bought some at Ski Valley and used those, so it wasn't a big deal. However, we did have to make a trip into Taos to buy washcloths and toilet paper, as there were no washcloths and very limited toilet paper. Bring your own. Still, overall, we would def. stay here again. It was convenient to the slopes and was easy to cook dinner for our big crew in the evenings. Also, the lady I dealt with was very sweet. I'd recommend to anyone--just make note to bring a few extra items for large groups.

Perfect summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a summer getaway! The Ridge Runner Cabin is the perfect place to enjoy the Taos ski valley in the summer months. The cabin has a game room, direct TV, legos, and hot tub which was perfect for my three young boys. The cabin is cozy, clean and has everything you need.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a ski trip! Authentic cabin in a gorgeous location. We stopped at the grocery store in Taos to stock up on groceries for the week and certainly made use of the full kitchen. Hot tub, DirectTV, game room, coffee pot, plenty of space for 8 to sleep, 2 full baths, washer/dryer....what more could you ask for? As others have stated, the ski resort is just over the hill....probably too far to walk, but less than a 5 minute drive. During our trip, Taos Ski Valley was running free parking lot shuttles that picked us up in the parking lot and dropped us at the little village at the base of the ski mountain. Of note, we are novice skiers and Taos is a challenging mountain (very steep). The owner, property manager, and caretaker were easy to work with and responded to emails/messages quickly. Cell phone reception is virtually non-existent, and that prevented the teen-agers from bumping into things while walking and looking at their phones.....I saw more of their eyes this week than I have in months!

We would definitely go back to the Ridgerunner! Thanks for giving us a great vacation.....

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin for a ski trip (for us) and winter getaway (for my parents). The cabin was exactly what was described online, no surprises. It was very clean and cozy and had everything we needed and then some. The location is very convenient to Taos Ski Valley, less than three minutes driving. It was very nice being able to bring the dog and he had a good time exploring the woods behind the property. The only confusing thing was the trash - we were instructed not to leave trash out due to risk of bears, but also instructed to leave it out every other day so the caretaker could come pick it up. There was a trash can on the porch, but it was not bear-secured and the porch was open so bears could easily climb inside to get to it. We were only there three days, so just left the trash inside when we left, but I'd recommend clarifying these instructions. Overyall, it was the perfect place for our needs and we would definitely stay here again.
