Many Feathers Ranch is nestled on the West facing slope of the quiet canyon at the base of Taos Ski Valley. With wonderful views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains and wide open countryside. The five acre property is flanked by moving water on its north and south edges. Ponds of varying sizes dot the property, reflecting the sky and inviting a wide range of wildlife. Deer, fox, wild rabbits, hawks, magpies and the rare brown bear. The home itself is an 8000 sqft, light-filled GEM.

The space
Many Feathers Ranch provides the space and tranquillity for deep relaxation. The home’s interior has been beautifully curated by clothing designer Raquel Allegra, with thoughtful attention paid to both the furnishings as well as the empty spaces. So your mind may ‘catch a breath’. Arched windows and high ceilings also contribute to the peaceful and relaxing feeling of this special home.
In colder months, radiant heating and wood-burning kiva fireplaces will keep you warm and the thick, polished pumice walls and high ceilings will keep you cool in summer. WiFi is available in and around the house only. The valley is otherwise without cellular service.
The surrounding five acres are maintained bio-dynamically and evolve seasonally. The bulbs in the Spring are a sweet surprise of confetti colors and the changing golden leaves of the aspen and willow trees will take your breath away in Fall. Ponds and small waterfalls surround the property and add to the soothing soundscape in the warmer seasons. The large sleeping porch off of the master suite can be prepared with 5 or more beds and mosquito nets in the summer with the wild sounds of ravens, hawks and humming birds for your sunrise soundtrack.

Kitchen is equipped with basics and MUCH more including Place-settings for 20.
Japanese mattresses have been hand-made in Albuquerque by Sachi Organics.
Three inch natural wool mattress toppers add additional cushion to each bed.
Firewood is provided year-round.
