Shady Brook Inn
SHADY BROOK INN- VILLAGE /RESORT
Shady Brook Village has been a Taos Canyon landmark for many years. It began as a fur buying station on a spur off the Old Santa Fe trail in the 1800's when the stagecoaches came thru, to the modern pueblo styled village that it is today. Surrounded by Kit Carson National Forest, it is complete with its own uniquely remodeled cafe-restaurant reopening in summer 2016. Shady Brook Village is centrally located for all of northern New Mexico's year-round, endless adventures. Our modern luxury dwellings are fully equipped and fully furnished, for your dream vacation plans.
Shady Brook Village is exquisitely located 7500 feet up in the beautiful Taos Canyon, with breath taking mountain views in virtually every direction, and only ten minutes from town. The gurgling Fernando de Taos River is just across the road and runs the length of the Canyon. Nestled in the Kit Carson National Forest we have the year round beauty of towering evergreen pine trees, sprinkled with annual trees that provide the gorgeous fall colors.

Whether You are a "honey mooning" couple, or a large family or group, Shady Brook has the perfect accommodation to make your vacation a five star experience.
The Shady Brook Village Indian
A very unique feature of Shady Brook Village deals with the mysterious "Shady Brook Indian." His full story isn't completely known but the staff at Shady Brook continues to find clues as to his creation and history. In years past the "Golden Indian" statue was repeatedly stolen, but somehow miraculously returned 5 times. Back in the 1950's/1960's Shady Brook Village was called "The Golden Indian." It was later purchased and fully remodeled with modern furnishings, but still in the South-western Pueblo style. The Indian statue somehow remained and his pleasant demeanor and welcoming wave became a landmark of Shady Brook Village.
