Overview

Photos and Description of the Taos Ski Valley vacation cabin rental

3 Bdrm, 2 Bath, Spectacular Mountain Views

“Rustic Elegance!” - a guest described after seeing our warm, inviting cabin home for the first time. If you choose to experience it, you will find it to be that - and much more.

THE CABIN:

When you enter the 2,230 square-foot log home, you will find that the large Great Room will capture your imagination the moment you walk in the door. The tall wooden pillars and the ceiling beams were all hand-carved by an old Taos Indian in the 1950’s. The large rock fireplace will warm your heart, your soul and your body.

The new 55' flat screen TV located in the Great Room will keep you entertained when you are in the mood to kick-back, put your feet up and relax. You will have access to dozens of channels, DVD player, plus Wi-Fi and telephone service. All of the furniture pieces were designed with comfort and beauty in mind. The many, unique artifacts that adorn the walls were handpicked and complement the ambiance of the home. We recommend bringing some of your favorite DVS’s and reading material. However, there are a number of DVD’s and books available for your enjoyment.

The adjoining kitchen is equipped with every appliance and accessory you might need. The gas kitchen stove is a high-quality Viking range and oven with a range-top grill between the four burners. The fridge is a side-by side freezer/refrigerator. You will find an additional smaller freezer nearby, as well as an automatic dishwasher, coffee maker and other appliances. The dishes, silverware, cups and glasses will accommodate 10 to 12 people. The large dining table is great for eating, entertaining and especially for playing games such as card games, Mexican Train, dominoes and a host of other games and jigsaw puzzles, all of which are available for your enjoyment.

BEDROOMS:

The Master Bedroom is also quite spacious and contains a beautiful log, king-sized bed with a very comfortable mattress. It is a welcome retreat after a full day of fun. All bed linens are provided. A new 40” flat screened TV is conveniently located for easy viewing from the bed. There is a walk-in closet in the Master; and in between the closet and Master Bath, is a set of doors that opens to a washer and dryer if needed during your stay. The Master Bath has a Jacuzzi tub and a separate shower as well as two sinks and mirrors. All towels, wash cloths and other necessities are provided.

The large Guest Bedroom is a lovely, large room with a king-sized bed and other unique pieces of furniture and decorations. For extra convenience, we recently installed a private sink in the bedroom. There is also a fair–sized, walk-in closet in that room. Check out the many games and puzzles that are in that closet.

The smaller Guest Bedroom with its log bunk-beds is a delight for kids of all ages. The bottom bed has a standard sized mattress that can easily accommodate two adults or two young children. The top bed has a single sized mattress. This room contains a log desk as well.

GUEST BATH:

Between the large guest bedroom and the third, smaller bedroom, is a shared bathroom, which contains a stand-up shower with a small bath tub at the bottom for children to use if needed. There are double sinks and other necessary amenities.

OUTDOOR AREAS:

After familiarizing yourself with the cabin, it is time to explore the outdoor area. Be aware that it is not unusual to see a small group of deer just casually grazing and roaming on the property as if it were their own.

From the Great Room, please use either of the doors located on the wall bordering the kitchen. Turn to your left and head over to the log swing – as you are walking, note the fire pit to the right for bon-fires at night and in the background a small log cabin for the children to play in. By the time you reach the log swing, if not already, you will hear the sound and be able to see the river waters running at the bottom of a sloping incline. You will also be able to see the beauty of the nearby pond surrounding by high mountains that will reach out and touch your soul.

The deck that runs along the back side of the house also provides you with additional lovely views and takes you to the opposite side of the cabin where a larger deck nestles up against the cabin’s entry door. If you turn to your right and go down the 3 or 4 steps and out straight across the yard, then look to your right again, you will find a sign indicating the location of a staircase, which will take you to the river that runs along the edge of the property.

There is a new propane barbecue available for your grilling pleasure on the north-west deck. A number of outdoor furniture pieces, including an enjoyable log-built swinging bench, mentioned previously, are all available for your enjoyment. There is a very nice picnic table with attached benches on the deck closest to the kitchen as well as a larger picnic table on the ground on the opposite side of the home.

For those who love 'around the camp fire” experiences,' there is a good-sized fire pit with a decorative metal guard. There are handmade wooden benches provided. However, if more comfort is desired, feel free to move some of the other outdoor chairs closer to the fire. Please check with the local Fire Department to be sure fires are allowed at that time. There are usually signs entering and exiting the main road going through Red River that indicate the approval level of firm usage.

Our hope and expectation is that you and your family and friends will all fall in love with our “Rugged Elegance – Vacation Rental” and that you will want to come back again and again.

Thank you!

Ken & Victoria Skinner

This beautiful, yet comfortable mountain home is just a short distance (6-1/2 miles) from Red River, New Mexico. Red River, a popular ski and resort town, is located on the historic “Enchanted Circle.” As you drive southeast from Red River on Highway 578 you will find yourself surrounded by nature’s beauty at its best.

While staying in the area, you may want to take advantage of the many sporting and recreational activities close by, such as: fishing, hiking, mountain climbing and sightseeing. These can all be experienced by simply stepping out of the door of the cabin. Within a relatively short drive, you can go river rafting in the Rio Grande River or rock climbing in that same area. In the fall, plan on coming back to see some of the most spectacular colors in the nearby Aspen Groves. In the winter, you can choose from three nearby ski runs in Red River, Angle Fire and the World Class Taos Ski area.

Year around, in the Town of Red River, you can enjoy some of the best steaks you have ever tasted, as well as a wide array of other great Country Western cuisine and entertainment. It is recommended that you plan on shopping the many, unique gift shops and variety of other stores in Red River and Taos. Just outside of Taos, resides the largest surviving multi-storied Taos Pueblo in the United States, which is well worth the visit.

There are also many fine wineries in the nearby communities and many other fantastic places to explore and activities that you can participate in within the surrounding areas.
