Very Good

“Summer trip”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2017

Really nice vacation, very relaxing. House sits right off the road, but designed well for the most part. Water system was a little weird, but it worked out. It's also very close to some beat hiking trails in the mountains. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet getaway.

“Such a wonderful place to get away from it all...”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2014

The Taos River Eco House was everything we hoped it would be and so much more. The location was perfect; and the home itself is so very beautiful and tranquil. We enjoyed being able to go and explore the local area and then have somewhere to call ‘home’ at the end of each day. It was a lovely place to stay and I hope we have the opportunity to return one day soon.

“Great Place!”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2013

We just got back from a 5 day stay in October. Everything was fabulous. There is so much attention to detail I would not know where to start. I will mention the proximity to the road may be a bother to some but there is no road noise in the house, just occasionally outside on the front or back decks/porch. You will want for nothing staying here. We will be back!

“Great place to disconnect”

Reviewed 25 Mar 2013

We had a great extended weekend here after a particularly inhumane stretch of demanding work hours. We had our 2 year old with us, and opted to leave our dogs at home (glad we did). For a small family, this was the perfect space. The house had more ameneties than I was expecting. The kitchen was fully stocked, plus had spices, etc...Wifi, dish, blu ray player. I have definetly stayed in worse hotels. The craftsmanship of the house is stunning, and we appreciated it very much. The hot tub was the whole reason we rented this place, and it did not dissapoint. Sitting in a hot tub with a drink in hand, listening to to Rio flow and watching the snow fall. It does not get any better than that. If you are wanting something way off the beaten path, there are more secluded places in the Carson, for sure. However, given the ameneties and proximity to the plaza (5 min drive)it is worth the comprimise. Plus, there are several trail heads close. There are neighbors close, and a campground behind you, but no one was a bother, and they did a good job fencing for privacy. We usually tent it for a week at a time when we are in this area, so it was a different experience. Price is right too.I would imagine the the fussy hotels on the plaza are more expensive, small, and have fewer ameneties. Great for families, just what we needed.

“Comfort in the Canyon”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2012

My husband and I recently spent a week at this lovely environmentally friendly home in Taos canyon. The house is extremely efficiently designed and built of beautiful natural materials. Every creature comfort was to be found here tucked on land sharing the Fernando de Taos River. All of the furniture was very comfortable including the beds. It is always a treat to get a good night's sleep when away from home. The patio on the river is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine listening to the gurgling water flow by. I would recommend this rental highly. It is located close to a main road so would suggest taking this into consideration if you have loose children or pets traveling with you :-). Our dog found the property and home quite comfortable (especially the stream) and did not have a problem. Overall, It would be difficult to improve on this little getaway.

“The Perfect Getaway”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2011

We just returned from a week at the Rio House and are already planning a January trip to both ski and attend a ceremonial dance at the Taos Pueblo. The house is so wonderfully designed with an open area leading to a great deck - right on the river, waterfall and all. The landscaping is charming, there's a pond in front of the house which is, in and of itself, so interesting because of its rusted iron color. The cabinetry throughout the home is beautiful. Inside and out, the property is very clean, well maintained and quiet. Every amenity is included. The bedrooms which are on either side of the kitchen-living space are equally well appointed and comfortable. We loved that we could go on long hikes (William's Lake at 11,000 feet) and shorter ones (Divisidero right down the road). We greatly appreciated the hot tub under more stars than you've ever seen before, with only the sounds of the river to distract us. In Taos, just down the canyon, we ate dinner on the patio at The Firefly, and had other wonderful food at Eske's Brew Pub, Orlando's, the Guadalajara, and Doc Martin's. All in all, we were totally happy with this unique property and look forward to our January trip.

“A Well of Peace”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2011

The home was welcoming and peaceful. We loved the hot tub and the proximity of the stream. The stars were more brilliant than we've ever seen. The only disturbance was the congregation of hundreds of motorcycles into the Enchanted Circle for Memorial Day, but after the weekend, the quiet returned.

“Relaxing on the River”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2011

We enjoyed our first stay at this unique and environmentally designed home in Taos Canyon at the end of March,2011. David and Meredith are wonderful hosts providing all the essentials in the household. The house and grounds were even more stunning than the description and the site by the river is very relaxing. The property was immaculate and pride of ownership was very evident. I would highly recommend this home for those seeking a relaxing retreat. Taos favorites include: Dragonfly for lunch and great desserts, Taos diner for local favorites! We enjoyed the Pueblo and a quick drive to the hot springs at Ojo Caliente as a great day trip to "soak your bones". They also have some great hiking trails.

“Amazing Value and Space”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2011

My family and I stayed at the Taos Rio property for spring brake. We were impressed with how large the space felt, very smartly designed. The wood work was beautiful, and everything is new since the home was just completed in January. Close to the good part of downtown, our favorite place to eat Doc Martins, and only 30 to 45 min from Taos ski valley. I would recommend the space to anyone.
