Stay In The Heart of Kachina Village At The Luxurious Bavarian Chalets
Designed for complete high-alpine comfort, mudrooms anticipate families with children, long hikes into the wilderness, gear storage and ski storage. Beginning in the mud room, galvanized steel panels and baseboards are a feature throughout. A refined rusticity permeates the whole. Supremely functional, each unit includes three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a powder room. Owner's storage is accommodated discretely under the entry window seat, and generously on the Owner's level – the fully divisible third floor suite.
Each unit incorporates locally sourced materials, such as dead-standing timbers and locally inspired themes. The feature wall in the living room, timber framing and stainless steel firebox cladding all recall the valley's mining tradition. Artwork is comprised of old Taos ski advertisements, black and white wilderness photography and the like. Organic textures, forms and materials complete what is a deeply generous, multi faceted design that redefines contemporary mountain hospitality.
Designed by Alexandra Champalimaud, the 2009 Designer of the Year,* the 3 bedroom chalets were named one of Travel & Leisure's 50 Most Romantic Getaways for 2010. For 2009, Interior Design Magazine selected them as one of three finalists for Best Boutique Hotel.
