Description


Scrabble House - a land mark Taos vacation rental home - offers a great dining/kitchen open floor plan with long copper clad counter and breakfast bar where guests love to gather, visit with the cook and maybe even pitch in and chop veggies. This gracious owner has provided ample cushy seating in the living room including a large table and chairs for computer buffs. This 3 bedroom home comes equipped with a 4th full guest bathroom for guests sleeping on the Queen living room sofa. This means the 3 master bedrooms remain as 3 master bathrooms not having to be shared with anyone else!

Sitting on 2 full acres, Scrabble House offers wide open space and sweeping mountain views north, south, east and west. Located on Ski Valley Road with an uninterrupted drive to Taos Ski Valley and a short 4 mile drive into town makes this "Taos lodging find" a popular choice for groups going in opposite directions for vacation fun (biking, fishing, hiking, painting, skiing or dining, exploring, golfing, rafting, researching, shopping),

Spring, summer and autumn the "Endless Pool" is in full use with fitness buffs and curious guests wanting a 1st time "Endless Pool" experience. For our Texas audience who believe summer lodging must include air conditioning - Scrabble House comes equipped with an "Evaporative Cooling" system - designed specifically to function in dry desert conditions. In addition, there are 3 ceiling fans and 4 large portable fans to insure cool conditions for our "very few" hot summer days.
