Pros: Gorgeous property filled with unique and expensive art. It is dog friendly and on a beautiful piece of lander our dog to run around. The owner was super nice and friendly when we arrived but unfortunately that’s really the only time we saw her. We stayed in the Native Room (which is sort of an inappropriate name). It was spacious and comfortable and decorated nicely. Cons: I read a review from a woman who must have stayed in the same room and had the same experience we did. Our room was VERY dark and our “patio” wasn’t maintained so there was snow on the fold-able chairs and no area that was shoveled for us to sit and enjoy outside. Our room didn’t really have much of Mountain View’s, just a bunch of hills and open space which was nice, you you had to walk around to be able to see the mountains. The other rooms had fabulous seating areas and fire pits outside of their room. While I realize our room was slightly cheaper, you can definitely tell this is the neglected room. They advertise that there is WiFi. While it works on occasion, it’s not consistent and goes out all the time. I had an emergency and had to contact my family but lost service for a good hour. My fiancé and I had to go around the property restarting routers because we couldn’t find the owners all day, even though they said they live on the property and would be available. I read that they used to do a fabulous breakfast but now they give you a bowl of nature’s valley granolas and one room temperature yogurt. They mentioned it was because of Covid that they couldn’t provide a proper breakfast, so they should advertise their property as a high end house with individual rooms. They also didn’t leave any creamer, only almond milk, in which I am allergic to. Even a holiday inn provides a decent coffee set up. Our room didn’t have a fire place or an outdoor fireplace however all of the other rooms did and they did not bother to light the main area fire place. They gave us minimal towels, a tiny trash can, no robe, bath mat, beach towels to the pool, dray mats in the pool area etc. These are easy and inexpensive fixes/additions. We also didn’t have a TV in our room, so with spotty internet, no tv, no cell service or a landline to call and wish my family a happy New Year and no fire to sit around it was, at times, boring. We even drove an hour to red river to ski. I didn’t see any games or other activities you could use in a remote location. We don’t expect a 5 start hotel and service but for this price we could have stayed at a hotel that has staff on-hand who doesn’t disappear all day, decent internet, with proper coffee and breakfast. I recommend upgrading your room if you’re going to stay here or save your money go to an actual BNB or hotel. This is not a bed and breakfast at all and it’s more just a fancy house owned by people who have great taste but spent all their money on art and not accommodating their guests. Nice people, but they can add a few touches to make this place truly great! I should note we are campers and stay in some rustic spots/adventure stays so we aren’t used to the glamours life by any means but you certainly don’t get what you paid for in the Native Room. Save your money and stay in a real hotel, or even an Earth Ship if you want the real taos experience.

We stayed in the two bedroom house. Two couples. Very spacious and nicely decorated. Beds were comfy. Enjoyed the bottle of wine upon arrival! They provided wood for the fire and had coffee beans for the morning. Breakfast was delicious and hostess was very nice and helpful. This was a great find! Will be back!

By the looks of the place in the photos, this seems like a real find. The problem is, this is a big house with a few rooms available without the real infrastructure of a bed and breakfast. While the new to the biz hosts are conscientious, they are dealing with a home with flaws. Too many flaws. While there are some pluses, for example, large groups can rent the entire place and essentially have a house for themselves, albeit, no kitchen, for me, as a solo traveler there were too many issues and I left early. Foremost to note, your cell phone probably won't work and I didn't have wifi calling. There are no phones for use in the rooms. The manager will lend you one, but it's awkward to do so, since I imagine, they need their phone. The heating system is either on (and hot) or off (and cold.) There is no regulation in each room, though I hear a new heating system is in the works. For me, I couldn't get comfortable without opening a window and that is really a waste of energy. And the system makes noises at night if you close the vents, like a constant whistle. My particular room (there are other rooms) was dark, daytime or nighttime, and lacked a proper place to put clothes into, like a dresser. Though it did have a gigantic walk in closet, but no shelves, so who wants to hang up every t shirt they have...and no place to put socks or undies, at all...The linens are truly average, maybe like a Best Western with the pillows an uncomfortably firm foam. When I asked for softer, nicer pillows I was told that this is all they had. I don't expect a "pillow menu" but...There is no understanding of the word luxury and what that should include. The bed didn't seem great to me either, but I don't doubt that it is new, just not to my liking. The bathroom has the same fixtures from 30 years ago when the place was built, so very dated looking. The bathtub is way too large, I mean, seriously large...and the shower, while pleasant in it's tiling, had no water pressure. And they provide hardly any amenities...I had to ask for shampoo, shower soap, etc...The large indoor pool advertised in pretty pictures didn't work while I was there, was surround by dead plants...(just throw them out, they aren't coming back!) and had windows whose seals were broken so instead of looking out at the lovely hills, you just saw cloudy glass. It's an old house, but it's a shame since the views are worth seeing. The driveway hasn't had gravel or base course put down in years and my feet sunk into 2" of fresh mud, requiring a good cleaning of my nice boots. Ultimately, this is a house in need of "deferred maintenance." It's unfair to market it as luxury, the only thing special really are the views, if you could see out the windows. I do think in summer the veranda would be nice. My breakfast was prepared by Robert who indeed made me a nice breakfast, though my orange juice was definitely not fresh or good quality even. Other's have noted that their breakfasts had fresh OJ, so perhaps with a full house (I was the only one there) there is reason to go all out. I didn't get to try Roberts cooking for dinner as it's a 2 person minimum. Lacy was nice to me until she realized she cannot help with my requests, and then she showed a lack of empathy. Robert remained pleasant, helpful and concerned throughout...it's a tough situation to take an older home and try to make it a solid place for guests. This place is expensive compared to what you get in Taos for that price, and not worth it to me, but once again, if you fill the place with friends and use the place for entertaining and partying, it might be worth it for you.

We decided to try Cielo Taos on a recent trip to the Taos area and couldn’t have been more pleased! Rob and Lacy were terrific hosts providing delicious breakfasts and a gourmet dinner. We were even asked which crepes we would prefer! We stayed in the Presidential Suite with it’s beautiful high ceilings and spectacular views of the sunset from the separate sitting room. Adobe fireplaces are spread throughout the property making it very cozy. This place is a little bit off the beaten track but definitely worth the trip and only about 20 minutes from the ski area and 15 minutes from Arroyo Seco which hosts several restaurants. Would highly recommend and hope to return!
