Bavarian Chalet 4

Holiday Availability! Posh, Pet-Friendly Chalet with Fireplace, WiFi

Located in the mountaintop Kachina Village, Bavarian Chalet #4 invites guests to experience the crisp air and stunning beauty of Taos Ski Valley.

Constructed with locally sourced materials, including dead-standing timbers, this charming European-style home features hardwood floors and beams, galvanized steel panels and baseboards throughout, and a minimalist style, harkening to the mining history of Kachina Village.

In the living room, a mid-century sectional sofa faces a chic, steel firebox and large-screen TV, accented by an industrial coffee table. Through a grand entryway, the living area flows into an eat-in kitchen, where a family-style dining table seats up to 8 guests. Fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and a wet bar, the kitchen offers plenty of room for crafting hot cocoa and cocktails after a day on the slopes, or baking a batch of cookies on a snowed-in afternoon.

Each bedroom, styled in modern mountain decor, features plush linens with plenty of storage:

Bedroom 1 - Top Level
The primary suite, located on the top floor for privacy, has a king-sized canopy bed, a chic sitting area, and en-suite bath with dual sinks and a soaker bathtub.

Bedroom 2 - Second Level
This airy room has a king bed, a writing desk, and an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower.

Bedroom 3 - Second Level
Sleeping up to 4 guests with two sets of twin bunk beds, this room is ideal for families or groups. Guests of this room share a spacious full bathroom.

Designed for maximum comfort and efficiency, Bavarian Chalet #4 features a separate powder room, a private washer and dryer, and plenty of gear storage. On blue-bird days, relax on the private deck or fire up the BBQ grill. For a gourmet night out, walk to the nearby Bavarian Restaurant, mentioned in Outside Magazine, for authentic German-Austrian fare.

No matter how deeply you sleep after a day of playing outside, you can still catch first tracks in the morning with a high-speed chairlift a short walk away.

Whether you’re seeking a scenic escape with family or an adventure with friends, Bavarian Chalet #4 is a perfect balance of rustic ambiance with convenience and high-end amenities.

Please be advised that this home does not have air conditioning.

What a FANTASTIC place! We had an incredible trip to Taos and this air bnb was a major reason. You can't quite tell from the photos but it's about 50 steps from the lift, and you can ski to within about 15 steps of the front door. It's as close to a ski in/ski out as you could possibly get. The house is really nice - 3 stories, great furniture, solid wifi, dishwasher, washer/dryer, 3 bathrooms and everything was very clean. Seriously no complaints - was a great place to stay. As for getting there - they are not joking about needing 4 wheel drive. The house itself is flat and there is no problem with parking, but the 10 minute drive from the base of Taos to the mid mountain lift where this house is would be treacherous in a storm. They plow the road and it was just snow/ice and we had no trouble in a kia tellluride, but if it was 0 degrees or if it was a blizzard - no chance you make it up without chains on or serious snow tires so plan accordingly. 1000% will book again!

Perfect ski chalet. Easy ski in and ski out. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and thought out. There were spices, napkins, Tupperware, foil, Saran Wrap, you name it the kitchen had it. Loved the starter toiletries. The beds and linens were extremely comfortable. Loved that each room had a humifider readily accessible, especially at 10,000 feet elevation. Floor plan works well for 2 families traveling together with children, especially the 4 bunk bed room. The team at NR was extremely helpful and communication was easy. Would definitely recommend this place.

BEST family ski trip ever....really!

I am grateful for the Bavarian Chalet #4 home that we enjoyed with another close family. The location was unbeatable, a few steps from the lift #4 and next to the Bavarian Restaurant where we enjoyed a 5 course New Years Eve meal, only steps away from the house. Our group of pre-teen and teenage kids were comfy watching movies with a fire and we joined them before ringing in the new year. The space was perfect for two families and kitchen had all the amenities to make most of our meals. A car (4WD, AWD or chains with the continued snow) was very useful to get to and from the Ski Valley stores and restaurants - although we skied there a few times. Also our wonderful manager Kim went out of her way to drive us from the Blake Hotel (where Taos Air dropped us off and picked up) to the home and back with all our luggage and snowboards on the day of arrival and departure. So we were able to rent only one car (the other family staying with us came a day later) between the two families.
