“Cute Ski Inn”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We stayed here for a few nights during a trip to visit my husband's family at Christmas. The location was great, it was a short drive in the mountains from the B&B to the Ski Valley. There was lots of fresh snow and the ski valley was easy to rent from as well. Two of us got standard sport skis and my husband got telemark skis. It was nice that you could leave skis there to store overnight so you didn't have to cart them back and forth. We were able to go back to the ski area for dinner as well as Taos pretty easily. For those not used to driving in snow, some of the tourists took a shuttle to Ski Valley. We are used to skiing in VT so this place reminded us of typical B&B's there. Our room was cute, little loft bed up above us was great for our 10 year old and there was enough room for all his stuff up there. We did have a few problems with our room as the tenants the night before we arrived had been very rowdy and trashed a few things, the bed among them. The hotel was fully booked so we couldn't change rooms but the owners were good about fixing the bed, damaged window & replacing damaged fridge quickly. Our room was right next to the little hot tub room, which was also perfect. The hot tub was indoors and had many different settings and was perfect to relax in after skiing. Towels were provided for hot tub use. The owners made excellent breakfast (there were fruits, yogurts, cereals, wafflemaker & hot homemade breakfast items to choose from including biscuits and gravy).

My husband and I stayed at the Austing Haus over spring break. It's location is great - just a couple of minutes from skiing. Their staff was friendly and their breakfast was wonderful. It was a great experience. The older building is beautiful with a lot of rustic charm.

After reading all the positive reviews I booked this hotel for a two night stay in Taos with my family of 4. We have two small kids, ages 4 and 8. We booked a loft room. First off, the ladder is steep and at the top of the ladder there is absolutely no fence of some sort around the open area to ensure no one falls. Not safe for under 6, even questioning that!

Additionally, this is a rustic hotel. I don't mind rustic, but it is not really clean! The pillows were yellow and did not have a pillow case protector. GROSS!

The front desk guy was super nice and tried to fix it the best he could. However, he seems to be solo in taking care of this place. This would be a great hotel for the show Hotel Impossible to come and "fix".

This hotel is rustic, needs updating, and most importantly the TLC that the original owner had for the unique building he built. Unfortunately, 30 years and 3 owners later, the hotel is deteriorating and not as it should be be.

My family has stayed at Austing Haus for the past 4 years and we hope to stay there again this year. It is a great value with breakfast included and clean rooms. The owner and staff are friendly and helpful. We also love the architecture and warm feel of the wood construction.

The service at the Austing house was great, and the people very welcoming and nice. This bed and breakfast is an older building, made with pegs and lumber instead of nails. The rooms are basic and need updating, but the owners recently put in a nice hot tub, and who stays in the room when you are sking! The breakfast ( included) was great. They also don't require a 5 night stay like a lot of places!

The owners were incredibly helpful and kind! They helped accommodate our needs during New Years Eve weekend. They employees were willing to help us in any way possible, including a flexible shuttle service and helping to find lost items. I was also pleasantly surprised when the owner helped me clean the snow off of my car as we were headed out. I highly recommend this B&B and will stay here again for my next Taos visit!

We were looking for a romantic getaway, and this was not the place. Having stayed with our friends at a ski-in, ski-out establishment, the Austing Haus does not come close to comparing. We were promised a king loft room, and got a "loft" with two queens. Not sure how one would be able to bring a suitcase, up to the "loft" which one gets to after navigating up a ladder through a small hole in the ceiling. We were very disappointed at the cleanliness of the room, as well as the surprise in the toilet. On a bright note, the receptionist was very polite and seemed accommodating. We decided to move on and stay elsewhere, so I can't comment on the breakfast. What I can say is this; If you make a reservation to stay here your money is gone, whether you stay or not. Unless you cancel seven days in advance. Make sure you get clarification on their cancelation policy before giving up your credit card number. Seeing the room was enough to make us leave. We did not get our money, or even a portion of our money returned. It's the busy season, business is business, got it. My wife and I were looking for a nice place to sit by the fire, enjoy each others company and be cozy before we leave for Afghanistan, AGAIN! Instead, taped to the fireplace was a hand written note that said "insurance does not allow wood fires". Thanks Austing Haus! Enjoy my money, you deserve it!
