Fabulous Resort!

This was the second visit my husband and I made to Shady Brook. Vernon is a fabulous host who takes care for every detail. We were welcomed with a lovely bottle of wine, a card and the makings of a nice breakfast for our first morning. I don't know that we have ever stayed in such a CLEAN place. In addition, when we asked about the possibility to grill, Vernon bought a gas grill for our unit. He and his wife are generous and honest hosts. The area is the nature and quiet of the forest but also close to Taos and to hikes, etc. You will not be disappointed with a stay at Shady Brook!

Wedding anniversary celebration

We enjoyed our stay here. We were received with a warm welcome by Vern. He and his wife had prepared a very nice celebration for us with flowers, an anniversary cake, sparkling soda and a sweet hand written card. The room was clean and nicely set up. Free wi-fi washer dryer was a nice convenience. The bedroom had a nice warm fireplace which was soothing after a long day out in the cold. The location is centrally located for an easy and short drive to Taos Ski Valley or Ange Fire. We definitely stay here again!

We just enjoyed a great family reunion at Shady Brook, which started with a warm welcome by the site’s proprietor, Vernon. The Grand Villa’s decor & amenities were outstanding and the Mountain View from the terrace was remarkable!

Nine of us spent Thanksgiving in the Presidential Grand Villa. Vernon was an outstanding host and went above and beyond all expectations to ensure that we had the time of our life, which we did! The accommodations left nothing to be desired. We are planning to return to the Shady Brook Inn often. The setting in Taos canyon is absolutely beautiful. If you have the opportunity to get to hear Vernon perform some of his music, do not miss this treat. He is an accomplished singer/songwriter.

Family Christmas

Our family of 17 spent Christmas at Shady Brook. We used the Grand Villa and the Enchanted Suite. We had everything we needed for a wonderful time! “Accommodating” is an understatement! Vernon and his wife go above and beyond! From providing a card table for a Christmas puzzle to a portable crib and baby gate, they met each request with servants’ hearts. The special personal touches are unmatched anywhere we have been! We highly recommend this beautiful location.

Christmas Vacation

Perfect getaway place. Very nice,clean and cozy suite. My daughters loved everything about it. The hideout beds and the view we had through every window of the suite. I as a mother loved that it had everything we needed like pots and pans and even detergent. It was like if we were at our homes but with a beautiful view and snow. We also liked that Mr. Vernon and Mrs. Debbie his wife received us with a delicious homemade fudge , a postcard and a bottle of cold sparkling grape juice. Mr. Vernon also gave us a tour around the suite and he was looking out for us until we arrived there. So glad we went there and are planning to go there again next year.

What can I say? Im speechless about our vacation in Shady Brook Inn. This place has an espectacular view of the mountains on every part of the suite. When we got there Mr. Vernon and Mrs. Debbie received us with homemade delicious fudge,a bottle of sparkling grape juice and a postcard. This place is so warm, cozy,spacious ,very clean and has everything we needed. From pots and pans to laundry detergent. Its like we were at our house but with a beautiful view of the snowy mountains. My daughters were so excited in there hideout beds and the we slept so comfortable in our beds. I want to thank Mr. Vernon for checking up on us until we got to shady brook. Thanks for making us feel welcomed and we hope to see you again next year ..

Shady Brook Resort was the destination for our family reunion and we could not have picked a better location. The scenery was amazing and the accommodations were awesome. Vernon was such a gracious host and was so welcoming! We had 39 guests ranging in age from 1 year to 84 and we all felt at home. Debbie even had a birthday cake waiting for a 6 year old celebrating his birthday!

We had a great time hosting all of you and we hope you keep us in mind when you decide to reunite your family next time. Yours Sincerely, Vernon

It was great. The hospitality was unbeatable, and the manager even drove a snow plow to help us get out. They gave us homemade fudge that was amazing. Perfect place to spend a spring break!

Shady Brook Inn Review

Stayed 4 nights with 3 teens and 3 adults. Accommodations were excellent, well equipped, clean, and met all our needs. Inn is very well situated between Taos and Angel Fire. Management was very responsive to all our needs and questions. Would highly recommend.
