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.

Christmas Vacation In Tais NM.

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.

Perfect accomodations!

We stayed 2 nights, and it far exceeded our expectations even with all of the kind reviews already posted! Ditto what everyone else has said. Vernon was so kind and helpful. The wine and personalized card were an extra-special touch! The suite was so fully stocked, it even came with laundry detergent and coffee. It was very clean, spacious, comfortable, and quiet. I feel like I need to include a recommendation just so people know this is real... some hooks in the bathroom for hanging towels/clothes would be helpful and another side table for the bed for setting glasses/book would be useful. There are hiking trails nearby which was a pleasant surprise. We definitely recommend this stop which is perfectly situated between Angel Fire and Taos, but not in the hustle and bustle of either.

Excellent Vacation Spot

Vernon greeted us when we arrived. Gave us a tour of our suite and an overview of how things work. Extremely gracious, thoughtful, and easily accessible if we needed anything but didn't impose any other time. We were a family of 6: grandparents, son and daughter-in-law and two grandsons ages 6 and 9. Perfect spacious accommodations for all of us without running over each other. So much for everyone to do from hiking, visiting the villages on the enchanted circle, see the gorgeous scenery of mountains, forest and canyons and plenty of activities for the boys. Breathtaking! Ask Vernon anything about what to see, where to eat, etc. and he has a wide variety of suggestions. Prior to our stay, we communicated with Vernon a few times with questions and he was quick to reply. We're ready to go back! Thank you, Vernon.

Wonderful Thanksgiving Break-Away!

We had a wonderful stay at the Grand Villa! We had 4 families total and never felt cramped or crowded! The house and bedrooms are very spacious and all come with TVs. Vernon was the best and so helpful host! We would have liked to see more of him but we ended up leaving the house pretty much everyday for a family activity. but Vernon was always available and so helpful and full of information! It was great! The house was stocked with everything we needed! It was so easy to just unpack and unwind after our drive to New Mexico. My 18 month old had a blast running around the house too!

Vernon, the manager, was so very helpful. He greeted us upon arrival and he was always available to answer any questions we had and even helped secure us a taxi ride for the concert we were going to downtown. The ride is about 10-15 minutes down the canyon to town, so Shady Brook is just far enough away to feel like you were in nature, and we were... The property backed up the Kit Carson national forest! The house had all the amenities we needed to feel at home, and we were able to sleep 9 comfortably on the beds and pull outs. Thanks, Vernon and Family…… It was great! 5 stars!
