About Trinh Le
Kent and I are from Texas and we love to go to Taos and be away from the hot and humid weather for a few days. We have also been in awe with the New Mexico landscape. After a few trips to Taos, we decided to buy a home here. As the Taos locals have told us, "The mountain is calling!" and, yes, we responded heartily by claiming it as our second home.
Why Trinh Le chose El Prado
If you like nature, you will love it at Eastern Star Retreat! The house is located just outside of town where you can truly appreciate the wide open spaces of Taos. At Eastern Star Retreat, you'll enjoy the 360 unhindered view of the Taos mountains. The Taos county, itself, stretches over 50 square miles. The average number of sunny days is 300/365. It has a mixture of diverse cultures that include that of Native Americans, Spanish and Anglo. Taos offers all kinds of outdoor activities all year round. The options are endless: e.g., skiing, snow boarding, snow shoeing, rafting, kayaking, hiking, golfing, horseback riding, biking, and hot air ballooning. Even if you are not as much of an outdoor sport enthusiast as you would like to be (i.e., like some of us), you'd still enjoy sitting back on the porch and soaking in the beautiful weather, pristine setting, and majestic mountain views. Personally, I feel blessed whenever I am there.

My family and I had a wonderful time in this home. We had some issues with WiFi due to down line. The owner informed us of the issue ahead of time and responded to all my inquiries promptly. She was really helpful in helping us troubleshoot the issue. The home was gorgeous and exactly as pictured. It is close to town, but still felt secluded. We loved it and would highly recommend this home to anyone.
We enjoyed our stay here, great setting, and very nicely decorated home. Had everything we needed and more than expected.
We appreciate your positive review. We are certainly pleased that the home exceeds your expectations and that you enjoyed your stay.

Our Weekend was most enjoyable, and the lovely home was just as promised.
The blow-up beds were--well--blow-up beds, but we appreciated the ability to accomodate all 8 of us. Thank you!

HOT AIR BALLOONING
Hot Air Balloons in Taos offer a unique experience where you can enjoy the view of the vast and mountainous landscape, and the rugged earth and winding water ways of the Rio Grande below. When inflating, it is noisy. But, once aloft, you'll be at awe with nature as you glide in the air. You'll feel the serenity, calmness that is uncommon in our busy daily lives and so refreshing! At the same time, a hot air balloon ride can be an exhilarating experience as you float high in the air and then dip down into the Rio Grande Gorge.
Flights usually take off in the early morning, at sunrise. Dress warm. Taos ballooning companies offer balloon safety and flight lesson, including firing off the burners and flying the balloon. If you wish, you can take the lesson. But, most just enjoy letting the pilot have the control and are there just for the ride.
