Tejas Mountain Lodge- Sled Hill, River, 7 mi to Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort

Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
We are located about 27 miles south of Taos, NM and just 7 miles from Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort. This cabin home is situated in the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains and Carson National Forest. It is directly off of State Highway 518 so winter access is not a problem. The home was part of what used to be called Walton's Mountain Lodge and later known as Elk Lodge. The surrounding area and adjoining cabins have been a very popular spot to stay since they were built in the 1950's. Lots of history here!
The house consists of a large living room with a central fireplace, books, and television; a kitchen with a new propane stove, a wood stove, and a cozy breakfast nook; a beautiful dining/sunroom with windows on three sides; two bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom has a king size bed and the second bedroom has a bunkbed with a full bed on bottom and a twin on top. There are also two sofa chairs that fold out to beds perfect for children in this second room. Wifi is included, as well as a internet enabled television in the living room with Netflix, Pandora and more. The kitchen includes a dishwasher to help with clean up. Outdoors on the back deck, you find the stunning Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the Rio Del Pueblo that runs through the backyard. Over 15 acres of space to play in the snow, enjoy a campfire, sled, fish or hike the Carson National Forest that is the back border to the land.
Whether during ski season, or during the splendid summer of hiking and enjoying the mountain views, or the spectacular displays of color in the fall; year round this home offers an excellent place to relax and enjoy time with your family and friends. Please contact me and let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to sharing this great vacation getaway with you!

Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

Needs lots of TLC
No hand soap, 1 dish towel, very little linens. No bowls bigger than a cereal bowls, nothing to make tea or anything , no furniture and holes in step on back deck, creepy hole in bathroom floor. This could be a nice place but it needs lots of work. Creepy neighbors that stay under the cabin.

5/5 Excellent

Vacation Escape
I had a great trip catching up with an old friend and hiking with the pups! The area has numerous hiking trails within a few miles of the cabin. We enjoyed parking and walking the Forest Road early in the morning and last thing at night and then hiking a different trails everyday. We brought all of our food and cooked every meal at the cabin (which I recommend) in order to enjoy our time to the fullest in nature's splendor. Without cell service in the area you are able to escape work (unless you want to be found at the cabin with WiFi). I recommend this cabin / area for a place to unwind and enjoy nature hikes and God's beautiful landscapes.
