“Luxurious home a few minutes drive from Taos”

Home was spacious, well-appointed with southwestern decor, and stocked with everything we needed. It was conveniently located between Taos, Taos Pueblo, Taos Ski Valley, and the Rio Grande Gorge, with good stores and restaurants nearby. For our family of 4, it provided a relaxing break in our 2-week vacation, with internet access and all the other comforts of home.

“Eastern Star Retreat”
Reviewed April 24, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A beautiful, spacious, comfortable, and well equipped adobe style home only 5.5 miles from the center of Taos with a spectacular view of the Sangre de Cristo range. Home has a hot tub, rooftop gazebo, two-sided fireplace (living room and master bedroom), and beautifully furnished with a southwestern motif. We truly enjoyed our stay.

“Excellent, excellent, excellent!!”
Reviewed October 24, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This place was so much better than we could have imagined. The location is just far enough outside Taos that you're in the country but only @ 5 miles when you want to return. It's actually hard to leave this home so we kind of had to force ourselves to go elsewhere. There were 3 of us at this gorgeous home so we each had our own room, bathroom, shower, and space, as well as having such a nice large home to relax in the rest of the time. It is so much better than we could afford on our own, but is also so inviting and relaxing that we felt right at home. The owner was quick to reply so everything was really perfect for us. We hope to go back soon. Thank you for sharing your property with strangers.

“Most wondeerful experience!”
Reviewed April 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2013

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at the gorgeous Eastern Star Retreat.
It had everything one could wish for. Beautifully and tastefully furnished with an amazing view. Fully equipped kitchen, two master bedrooms, WIFI connection, TV, everything one could ask for. Best vacation we had in years. I highly recommend the Eastern Star Retreat during all seasons. Taos is within close distance and has much to offer in the way of arts, history, and great food.

Everything was so nice! The atmosphere, people, weather, experience, adventure. The home just really tied it all together and made our trip one of the greatest in my books. Can't wait to return!

“Eastern Star Retreat: my best R&R experience ever!”

I had the opportunity to spend one week at Eastern Star Retreat, this past winter. It was the perfect setting for a white Christmas. We were eight: a senior citizen (me), two parents in their fifties, two college graduates and three children, ages 18, 15 and 8. We all had a blast! The home (authentic rustic New Mexico style, from the architecture to the furniture) had everything to please the whole group! Wi-fi, spacious living room with a superb entertainment center (huge flat-screen TV, movies (DVDs), books, electronic and board games). Fresh water/hot water was in abundance; the heated floor was one of the most appreciated features. Each of the three bedrooms (equipped with king-size beds) had its own bathroom; extra clean Ralph Lauren linen was provided; the kitchen was fully equipped. Sipping my morning coffee while watching the sun rise was pure bliss! The Retreat sits at the foot of the mountain, on Blueberry Hill, and enjoys a tremendous view of the mountains, not far away. Our young adults and children went skiing and snow-boarding every day since the slopes were so close; the trip up to the ski resort was quite different from Squaw Valley or Heavenly (Tahoe): there were no lines of automobiles inching up for miles on tortuous mountain roads, and no chains were required. It took us 5-10 minutes to reach downtown Taos. What a nice little town -- with quite a variety of cuisine: Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Texan, ... something good for every palate! Folks were very friendly and we all enjoyed our stay. We had a chance to talk with the owners of the Retreat before and after our stay. Great people, great customer service, indeed. I would certainly recommend Eastern Star Retreat to my friends and family. I have already made my reservation for this Summer and Winter.
