So many skiers and boarders seem to think if you can't stay right at the mountain, then you're better off in the town of Taos, mostly because of the price. As a frequent visitor to the regions best mountain, everything from the friendly folks assisting throughout a stay, outstanding rooms and amenities to a sumptuous hot breakfast daily to the... More

This was our first ski trip to Taos Ski Valley. Columbine Inn was an EXCELLENT choice for my party of 2 Moms and 2 college students. We stayed in a room with loft which gave the college girls some privacy. The owners(husband and wife) are "hands on" and very accommodating. The front desk personnel were very personable and a delight... More

Loved this place - less than 2 miles from the base of one of the gnarliest ski mountains in the West. Rooms are spacious, breakfast is great, and the staff is super friendly and accommodating. Also, the free shuttle to and from the mountain makes life so much easier. Will definitely stay their during my next trip to Taos Ski... More

Thank you for your kind words and we agree that Taos is one of the gnarliest ski mountains in the west. We think that if you are a skier or boarder, you should definitely have Taos on your “bucket list”. We look forward to your next visit and thank you for your business. Paul & Susie Geilenfeldt More

Our family has stayed at Columbine for our past 3 skiing trips! The first time was with extended family, the second time was just us (family of 4) and the third time with a group of friends(about 30 of us and all ages). The inn is charming, very pretty and very close to the ski resort. The inn provides shuttle... More

Staff throughout this Inn were all friendly and helpful, but Shawn in the breakfast lodge took amazing care of us! Everything was delicious and hot, served with a smile and extra special touches like sides of green chili sauce and more. We will definitely be back.

This is a pretty, quiet and comfortable privately owned hotel in Taos Ski Valley. The owners were friendly, welcoming and accomodating. Our room was spacious and the bed comfortable. It is a great place to stay if you're taking advantage of the outdoor activities, though there were no restaurants, stores, etc. during our visit (due, in part to construction at... More

I stayed here on a 10-day retreat with ~20 people, so can't speak to how it is for regular travelers. There were amenities we did not use, such as the hot tub & fireplaces, & the retreat had its own cook so I don't know what their usual breakfast is like. The room I had was a very generous size...

My family and I stayed for four nights, and the Columbine offered us all we needed for a family ski trip to Taos. Our room had two queen-sized beds with one of them on the loft above.
