Angel Fire house description
WINTER snow and sports, SPRING flowers, SUMMER golf, tennis, fishing, and hiking, and FALL foliage. What is your favorite season?
Every season in Angel Fire offers natural beauty and special experiences for the getaway vacation retreat you need. Enjoy the season of your choice in our beautifully decorated mountain home. Nestled amongst aspen, fir, and pine at 8600 feet, views and scenic beauty abound, and you will be comfortable in our bright and open feeling home with three bedrooms, two baths, sleeping loft, cathedral ceiling glass front living/dining room, fully-equipped kitchen, and spacious wraparound deck.
The home's location provides easy access to Angel Fire Village and Resort facilities, about 2 miles for skiing or golf, groceries, dining, horseback riding, children's activity area, and lake fishing. It is a short walk to Kit Carson National Forest trails for hiking and mountain biking. The historic and cultural richness of Taos (30 miles) and Santa Fe (90 miles) are close enough to experience.
Entering the front door, you will begin to get the feel for the comfort of the house in the anteroom with recessed bench and coat hooks for adding or removing layers of clothing and changing footwear. Pleasant art work begins in the anteroom and continues throughout the house.
Furniture and decor in our home is a mix of southwest and antique. Antique winter sports equipment is attached to the walls of the 28-foot cathedral ceiling living/dining area which is to the front of the house with large glass windows from floor to ceiling. The living area has a wood-burning stove, over-stuffed southwest sofa, and an entertainment area with TV, VCR, DVD, and CD player. The dining area features an antler chandelier and large comfortable chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware, and Dansk pottery dishes ready to be used.
The two downstairs bedrooms share a bath; one bedroom has a queen-sized bed with antique headboard, and the other has an antique double-sized brass bed. The master bedroom upstairs has an antique cherry bedroom set with queen-sized spool bed, a private bath, an adjacent sitting area with a single bed/couch, and large windows looking through the cathedral ceiling living/dining area out the front of the house.
Also in the master bedroom are two children sized foam chairs that fold out to make comfortable beds for little people. All of the bedrooms have ceiling fans and ample closet space. There is a Sleeping Loft which is a small room off the stairway with a double mattress...close the half door and you have a private cozy quiet sleeping space for two.
Beds are as follows: 2 queen, 2 double, 1 single, 2 fold out chair beds for small children...Our home can accommodate a maximum of 11 …4
beds for 2, 1 bed for 1, 2 fold outs for small children...4 separate spaces.
The entry, hallway, kitchen, downstairs bath, and dining area floors are tiled, while the rest of the house is carpeted. Clothes washer and dryer are available in a closet off the downstairs hallway. Heat is provided by a forced-air propane furnace. We ask that you NOT SMOKE in the house, and that you NOT BRING PETS.
The large wraparound deck has a gas grill, chiminea, large umbrella table, chairs, lounge chairs, covered area, and ample bench seating. If you are a smoker, ash trays and cigarett recepticles are on the deck. When you smoke outside, remember to be extremely cautious as FIRE DANGERS in a mountain forest site with a wood home and deck are ever present.
Come enjoy the natural beauty of the mountains in a comfortable home-away-from-home. Check in with the home front as long distance telephone calls are free. A wifi DSL internet connection is available, so bring your laptop. Dish Network Family package with local networks is available for tv viewing, with the ability to access pay for view movies.
Very large groups (up to 40) can be accomodated by renting the Bunker Hill house next door, and the Bunker House across the street. A great option for family reunions, wedding parties, or any large group occassion. Contact us for more information.

My wife and I reserved this cabin (lodge?) for our son and his new bride for their short honeymoon. They report that it could not have been a better fit for them. Nice drive to Taos. Very quiet environment. I made a special request for a bit of snow while they were there. Woke up one morning and had about 3" on the ground. House was clean and very well furnished and equipped. They would like to go back sometime -- and my wife and I hope to go sometime in the summer. The owner could not have been nicer or any easier to deal with. (He pointed out that a truck stop en route had a nice collection of mostly 50's restored cars. Having owned a '57 Chevy for a short time, our son couldn't have been happier about a rest stop.) Highly recommended.

We stayed for 5 nights. The elk walked right up to the house. Lots of beautiful views. The house was everything that it was listed as. Beautiful home. Our 12 year old son, LOVED the loft area for his room. It was perfect for him. There are a lot of beautiful drives that can be taken, around the area. We went and saw the Alpaca; took a 3 hour ATV ride up into the mountains (Gary our guide was excellent); we even attended the Wheeler Peak Cowboy Fellowship on Wednesday night, talk about a great group of people to visit and worship with. Overall our stay at the George's place was great. Mr. George was excellent in helping us with a couple of minor issues. We had 4 adults, a teenager and a 12 year old with us and we had lots of room. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home.

Beautiful, retreat from the TX heat. Lots of birds and chipmunks, a lovely non-shy female deer who grazed off the deck every night, even a large male bear who hung out by the cabin. Very private, quiet, clean. Will definitely visit Angel Fire again and stay in this cabin!

Our stay was great!! We really enjoyed the fact that the home had everything we needed down to a meat tenderizer. It was kept very clean and you felt like you were home. The home sits on such a nice property. We got to see wildlife and it was spectacular. Would highly recommend because it is truly a neat home and very private. Will consider staying again. The owners and manager of home were truly friendly and easy to communicate with.

Excellent stay. Everything was as represented. No problems and if we go back to Angel Fire will probably get in touch with you again. Wonder how you negotiate the uphill driveway in the winter. Our local pharmacist, Mike Hanes, retired and moved to Gainsville a couple of years ago. He and his wife Claudia are great people so if you get acquainted with them tell them hello from us.

Owner response: Don't know the Hanes, but know they live at Lake Kiowa. In a town our size, our paths will cross, and I will tell them hello from you. The drive is plowed for each guest. Usually it is not a problem, but if there is, we suggest they pull in the drive, and walk up. Thanks for the review.
Great Spring Break Get-away
Great Spring Break Get-away
Our experience at the George House for Spring Break was very refreshing. The family enjoyed the well-stocked cabin, and we found the accommodations exactly as described with some extras that made our stay even more "home-like." The snowmobiling and the skiing available in the area met the needs of all member of our family - and the times spent at night with family games and family fun made memories that will last a life-time. The kitchen was well-stocked and had everything we needed to prepare out night meals.

Your house is lovely. We could tell that it's been a real home to you and your family. You've added so many special touches -- the flowers, the tee-pee, the hammock, the walking sticks, the really comfortable chairs on the deck... We enjoyed being there very much -- the hummingbirds, the ground squirrels, the rabbit that visited in the evenings. We all said that it was the nicest place that we'd ever stayed in as a family. The beds were very comfortable, and as you'd said, the layout was perfect for our group. We played cards in the evenings and fixed breakfast in the mornings but spent a lot of time "out and about". We were sorry that the national forests were closed because of fire danger but we found plenty to do -- horseback rides on private land, the cowboy dinner at Bobcat Pass, a day in nearby towns, a visit to the pueblo in Taos, a hike on the trails across from the golf course, ... The people in Angel Fire were very friendly and the prices were quite reasonable at the grocery store. We never went beyond Angel Fire for groceries. Thanks for sharing your home with us. Jean

Thank you for letting us enjoy your home. I hope we left everything to your satisfaction. Vickie, your property manager, was very helpful and we found your home to be very pleasant. We hope to rent from you again in the future.

About the owner: Hi, we are Guy and Kay George, owners of the George Cabin in Angel Fire, New Mexico. We are retired, and live in Gainesville, Texas. We have 3 children, and 1 grand daughter. Our 3 children live in Crowley, Louisiana; London, England, and Denton,Texas. We get to our house in New Mexico often. We enjoy winter sports, golf, and square dancing. We ran a Bed and Breakfast in Gainesville for eight years, and know that we have made our cabin comfortable for our guests.
Why the Owner Chose Angel Fire:
We bought our home in Angel Fire because it has lots of snow in the winter, cool summers, and is a comfortable drive from North Texas.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is tastefully decorated and conveniently located. We are 2 lots from an entrance to the Elliott Barker trail, close to the grocery store, golf course, and ski lift.
