We stayed at The Bavarian for a few days earlier this year. The skiing wasn't great (not enough snow), but our stay at the Bavarian was so charming and authentic. The location is amazing for skiing - just steps away from the ski lift. The lodge is beautifully constructed and the rooms are spacious, complete with the same impressive murals... More

The Bavarian Lodge and Restaurant offers superior food, drink, lodging and atmosphere for anyone skiing or partaking in summer activities in The Taos Ski Valley and Sangre de Christo Mountain areas. My family recently did some hiking and mountain biking in the area and had a wonderful meal in the restaurant. They offered us a german sampler plate and the... More

We found this near the base of the hiker's parking lot at Taos Mountain. We figured that it would be an average little ski mountain base place for drinks or a light meal. Boy, we're we surprised. The beer was cold and the food was excellent; way beyond expectations. We were there at off-ski season as we were hiking Williams's... More

The lodge is charming; the location is fantastic; the restaurant is good; the room was dated; and the bed was a brick. We literally used our air up camping mattresses under the sheet. We will return to the restaurant--but no more overnight stays.

I've stayed here in the off season only. I've eaten here during the ski season. Food is great; staff is great; location is fabulous, but I can't help but agreeing with some of the reviewers that it could be so much more. It needs to be spruced up -- it has a somewhat stale feeling.

As a resident of Taos, I have never had the occasion to stay here, but the restaurant is amazing. Sunny days mean the outside deck for lunch, even in January. The food is like being in Bavaria, wonderful brats, sauerkraut, spatzele, goulash, schnitzel, salads and amazing strudel. The beer is Spaten on tap, what is not to love? The views... More

The good: We had some beers after a hike and chilled. There were several people doing the same and most were eating a late lunch or early dinner outside. If the weather is warm it is really nice to look at the mountains and be outside. We ate dinner inside (we were staying at the lodge that evening) because it... More

If you are hiking Wheeler Peak spend a night and reward your legs with an easy stay over. We were only two people so we stayed in the Thomas suite. The room was clean and very large. We considered it a good value (they offer a made to order simple breakfast in the morning). The only thing to consider is... More

We just stayed in Building one. Ours was a 3BR and three couples went for a ski weekend. The chalet was very well appointed. They had everything we needed from laundry detergent and trash bags to coffee filters. It's the little things!! The beds were really comfortable and it was decorated really nice. I love the cabin / contemporary feel.... More

My family has decided to go skiing in Taos this coming Christmas, so I started my online research to find the perfect lodging location. Using Tripadvisor, The Bavarian Lodge looked like the perfect place. So I proceeded to book a room at The Bavarian during the Christmas week. I booked the room online using the online booking system provided at... More
