We were very pleased with Shady Brook. The house was beautiful, surrounded by beautiful mountains. The drive to and from Shady Brook too the surrounding towns and villages were scenic and breathtaking. Our on site host, Mr Vernon was extremely helpful, generous and kind. He went out of his way to add a 6th star to our already 5 star stay. If you can make your trip through the Carson National Forest of northern New Mexico, choose Shady Brook Inn. -R. Hinojosa

My family and I loved our visit to the Grande Villa - it was a great place to spend time after skiing and provided a perfect atmosphere for spending quality time together!

Our large family was very very pleased with the Villa. The pictures online do not do ShadyBrook Inn justice. Vernon was fantastic from the time of booking through check out. The Villa was very clean & spacious and we were able to cook our own meals in the large (well equipped) kitchen. The view was spectacular when it snowed. We didn't want to leave. We had the best time & hope others will visit this amazing place if they're in the area :)

We were welcomed by a big, clean, and warm house, with a bottle of wine and a box of fudge in the kitchen, and a tray of fresh fruit in the fridge (very nice touch)! Everything was just like in the pictures. The location was great for us. We did not try the cafe next door, so I can't comment on it.

My family and I stayed at the Grand Villa the week after Christmas. I travelled with my husband, parents, sister, and her family. The house was spacious and well cared for. Vernon was an excellent host and always available for questions and recommendations. The view from the dining room was beautiful! One of the reasons I picked this airbnb was because of the close proximity of the Shady Brook Cafe. However, the cafe was closed on Wednesday and Thursday. The only hours on the days it was open were 7-2. My family was skiing during those hours so we were not able to walk to grab dinner or snacks, which we had planned on. Pictures on trip advisor showed pictures of a full menu meals. However, their menu had been discontinued. The cafe was only a minor setback, everything else was wonderful! The house was fully equipped and my family had an excellent stay! We would definitely stay again!

Our group of knitting ladies were welcomed with a delicious box of homemade fudge, a wonderful bottle of wine and food in the fridge for breakfast. We were given the grand tour and all the information about the villa and the area. EVERYTHING was exactly as pictured and described (PLUS.....even better in person). I was very impressed with the property and the service. Thank you for a beautiful setting (inside and out) to enjoy a relaxing weekend with friends. I will be sharing this property listing with others. Fantastic job!!!
