There are four lodging options at The Bavarian, all with varying amounts of bedrooms. Some units include kitchens, all have television, Internet and laundry services available. The property backs up to Lift 4 and offers ski in / ski out access. The lodge is decorated in true German-style with classic alpine details. Since their opening in 1996, this is a popular family spot and the restaurant is a can’t-miss.

We took a free shuttle up from Taos Ski Valley to the Bavarian Lodge. The meal was fantastic with great atmosphere and excellent service. This truly was the best meal of our trip. We were traveling with a 4 and 5 year old and they loved it too. The interior had great decorations and was cozy but well spaced and private. It was located at the base of a ski slope and has a huge deck for watching sunsets.
Taos and the Bavarian are always amazing - but on a sunny day - and regardless the temperature (if the wind is low) - sitting out on the Bavarian deck eating huge warm pretzels and drinking wine or beer looking up at the amazing Kachina Peak - well, it doesn't get better than this folks. Great music (lots of Marley) and everyone is your friend. Special shout out to Alicia - her smile and welcome will warm you up on the coldest of days! Don't go near Taos without hitting the Bavarian. I've skied all over the world, and this is the best!
