About the property

3-Bedroom, 2 Bath Condo -- Perfect for Your Family(s)

Situated in a scenic location at just over 10,000ft, just a short walk from the Kachina ski lift and Phoenix lodge. Built in 2007, it is one of the newest accommodations in Taos Ski Valley. It has incredible views of the backside of the ski valley, Kachina Peak, and the surrounding Sangre de Cristo mountains. Thanks to it's position in the valley, the sunrise and sunset dramatically illuminates the peaks from the front porch and out the floor-to-ceiling windows. Wildlife abounds – including bighorn sheep, elk and bald eagles.

This property is spacious, comfortable, and has everything you need for a great vacation. Downstairs, each of the two bedrooms has its own bathroom and is equipped with a king bed and Euro-topped mattress. Upstairs, you'll find a large loft with four comfortable beds (two twin and two full – kids can double-up on the fulls), a TV for DVDs, and dozens of movies and board games- it's perfect for the kids or young adults.

Heated floors take the edge off the brisk mountain temperatures, and two-story floor-to-ceiling windows frame the spectacular views. The kitchen is open, well equipped, and has plenty of counter space for cooking big meals for the larger groups that fill our condo.

You will also find plenty of storage for your outdoor gear, as well as a full-size washer and dryer.

If you don't feel like cooking, you're in luck! The highly-acclaimed Bavarian Restaurant is our neighbor. You will find delicious homemade German meals and the finest imported beers served in a beautiful and rustic Bavarian lodge. No need to drive, it's just down the trail!

In the summer, the location is a perfect base for all your outdoor adventures. Adjacent trails lead into protected Wilderness Areas and onto the picturesque Williams Lake. Towering above the condo is Wheeler Peak, the highest peak in New Mexico, and a great place to hike. We also neighbor 'Northside', a collection of mountain bike and hiking trails for all skill levels.

During the winter, a short 5 minute walk takes you to the base of the Kachina lift, where you can skip the crowds by putting on your skis or snowboard starting your day on the fresh backside snow! No driving, no parking! The easy access to and from the condo means you can have a hot lunch at home, or watch your family and friends ski the Kachina bowl and trails from the balcony. (Note – if you have very young children who are not yet skiing, this location requires a drive down to the ski school and may not be for you.)

Roads are well maintained in the summer and well plowed in the winter. However – we are at altitude in a heavy snow belt - a vehicle with either a 4x4 or AWD system is required from November through April (chains are an alternative). If you are flying-in, a 4WD vehicle can be reserved at most NM car rental agencies.

We have just begun to rent our home (March of ’13), so you might check the reviews of some of our Wheeler Peak neighbors for reference (VRBO 408479, 359892, and 441170). These are all great places and great people to rent from if you need some alternatives.
