    Arroyo Seco - Des Montes area- 1/2 mile to Village of Arroyo Seco, 10 miles to Taos Ski Valley, 7 miles to town of Taos

    Alto Vallecito - a contemporary custom home on 1.4 acres with expansive unobstructed views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, including its' namesake Vallecito Mountain (12,643’). Conveniently located halfway between the town of Taos and world-famous Taos Ski Valley with a unique design interpretation of “Taos Architecture,” blending a pueblo-style flat roof with a pitched roof creating grand cathedral ceilings in the great room and master bedroom.

    The floor plan is ideally suited for 2 couples (with bedrooms/baths on opposite ends of the house) or a single family with children. The kitchen and living/dining areas are essentially one big space made cozy with a wood-burning stove and takes advantage of the grand mountain views via large picture windows. The home is lovingly stocked by the owners with books, movies, entertainment system, a gourmet kitchen, lead crystal wine glasses, and high quality linens/towels. In place of satelitte TV there is a new Roku streaming device hooked up to the TV for guests to sign into their own streaming and TV services like Netflix and others, etc. Enjoy a drink and mountain views from the private outdoor hot tub after taking a short walk to the cute village of Arroyo Seco just 1/2 mile away.

    "A regional contemporary hybrid of two common Taos styles, the design blends flat roof and territorial pitches to create a truly unique interpretation of Taos Architecture. The home is positioned to take advantage of the panoramic views of the nearby Taos Mountains and looks beyond to capture the distant peaks of the Truchas Range. Constructed of 14" pumice crete with R-factor of 28 and wise solar orientation keep the home warm in the winter and cool in the summer". Jed Magee, Architect

    This place had it all. My husband and I took his elderly parents out for a week of relaxation and exploration. A beautiful, clean and well appointed house! It is out of town and that is one of the reason's we liked it so much! Quiet and surrounded by beauty! The house was set up with EVERYTHING we needed! I had to work while I was there so the office (with printer) was perfect. My husband swears the owner has to be his long lost brother due to the extensive library content. Thank you for sharing your lovely home! We would love to come back again. - G. Goodwin

    My friend and I spent a relaxing 4 day weekend at the beautiful Alto Vallecito. The house is open, roomy, beautiful and well stocked with everything you need. I would have been happy just staying in the entire weekend. - R. Seiwald

    The house was beautiful. It was perfect for 2 couples. There were wonderful views out every window and the hot tub was a welcome retreat after skiing. The location provides easy access to both town and the ski valley. The house was clean and had wonderful ammenities including plenty of books and games. The property caretaker was extremely helpful to ensure we had an enjoyable stay! The 5 feet of snow we got in the ski valley didn't hurt either! Highly recommend this house. - L. Sulkin

    Wonderful retreat in the mountains of Taos. Absolutely wonderful experience. This house is amazing in every respect. From the bedrooms, to the public areas to the hot tub, this house was everything we expected and more. Our stay was wonderful as the house is close enough to Taos and the Ski Valley while also being a bit out of the way so we had the privacy we also were looking for. Premier Properties was first class from the first time I inquired about a property to the day we arrived. - J. Sandy

    Exceeded our expectations. The views were magnificent! The house was efficiently and tastefully set up; modern kitchen with more than adequate utensils and service ware. The hot tub was waiting for us when we arrived; a delightful "extra"! - D. King

    Rise and shine with incredible mountain views. Just a few minutes outside the town of Arroyo Seco, this stunning house is a shear delight. The views from the living room and outside deck are more beautiful than pictures can express. Javelina, rabbit, humming birds, and butterflies grace the house and its regional-inspired garden during the summer. Taos Ski Valley is minutes up the road. The owners have a helpful selection of guidebook that help you plan a quick hike or a longer trek. Taos, Taos Pueblo, the Rio Grande Gourge are down the road a bit. Whether you're heading to the Taos Mesa Brewing or a familiar Plaza institution, the drive is quick and easy. A walk to Abe's Cantina for a local treat is a must, and you can burn off the calories from the Taos Cow ice cream on your way back home. This place is a great find and a wonderful vacation home - Jeff L.

    "Perfect for two couples!" The house was spotless. There are two wings so each couple has lots of privacy. The common area was comfortable but was short one chair if four people were all there at the same time. The kitchen was huge and well stocked. I wasn't sure where 6 people would sleep. There were cushions for children, but the couch was not a hide-a-bed and floor space was limited. The views from the house were breathtaking. We loved sitting out on the patio after our day hikes. - Taos Lover

    "Spring Skiing Trip in New Mexico" Alto Vallecito impressed my family and me. It is a beautiful 2 home with plenty of space to accommodate a family and has privacy. The views from the family room's huge windows onto the mountains is wonderful. The home is beautiful in every detail - from the large stainless steel vent hood to the wood beams. Vallecito had every feature needed including an outside grill perfect for grilling meats to a private outdoor spa. The location is ideal and it took us about 15 minutes door to door to the ski valley. Because this is not a condo or a development, there is privacy and calmness. I would very much stay here again. - Skier

    Thank you, Premiere Properties! Great home - quiet - comfortable - great views - great to have access to a garage. Love Taos and cooler weather - 4th year to vacation here and this is the best house so far. Premiere Properties (Dave) "gets it". Great customer service and easy to work with. - C. Staudt

    Perfect retreat for two couples. We had a wonderful relaxing vacation. The house was very quiet. We could sit out on the patio and enjoy the view of the mountains. At night we relaxed in the hot tub and watched the full moon float over the peaks. I would come back in a heart's beat. - T. Workman

    We are already planning to return. The property was awesome. Within walking distance to the village of Arroyo Seco which had a great artist community it is also within a 20 minute drive to Taos and some wonderful restaurants & shops. The house was more than large enough for our family of four. The layout was fantastic.Their were large open windows on three sides of every room for a great panoramic view of the mountains. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we could possibly need. It was great not to have to eat out everyday. The cabin was toasty warm due to radiant floor heat and a wood stove. Very important to we southern skiiers we after a day on the slopes. - JB, Lafayette, LA
