Stayed for a couple days with my girlfriend while skiing at Taos Ski Resort. Winter time is really slow in the city of Taos so we were the only ones staying at the location. Hosts met us outside open arrival and gave us a free upgraded room! Really tough to locate the place by the way if your GPS does not locate the road its on....it's kind of hidden away. The road its on "Mabel Dodge" is named after a famous Taos prostitute from the past lol.....
Anyway, we were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived and saw how nice the room was inside as we have not had much luck with bed and breakfasts in the past nor has tripadvisor been reliable in the past when places have been rated highly. Really liked the fireplace in the room which the host helped me light up when i had no luck. We are from Texas and are not used to the cold so much there but the room has radiant heat so the floor warms up and is nice on bare feet. The room they upgraded us to had a whirlpool bath and a nice strong shower.
Breakfast was really nice as both of the hosts are chefs and cook things right there for you and even asked me what time I wanted to eat. They are also knowledgeable about where to eat locally for dinner and can recommend some great places.
Couple minor issues.....weren't able to get internet service to work as the adobe walls block wifi pretty well. The host brought over a hot spot but I had no luck with that either. Phone and internet service is really spotty in Taos overall so take care of your internet stuff when you can pick up a signal in town. The only other thing is the TV in the room is really tiny and the hosts indicated this is something they are upgrading in the future.
