Welcome to our listing for Badar Mountain Cabin! We absolutely LOVE Angel Fire, NM, so we built our vacation home here 15+ years ago.
Our comfortable home is very close to the Ski lifts, including the high speed quad, the 'Chili Express'. In fact, it is 3 blocks to the lift. There is a shuttle-stop approximately 90-ft. from our drive-way, and the Angel Fire Resort shuttle will pick up passengers, during ski season, to take you to and from the mountain.
We have a great view of Wheeler peak from our living room and deck, and summers are delightfully cool and refreshing at 8600 feet elevation. Get away from that heat for a while, and enjoy golf, fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking in the beautiful Moreno Valley of northern New Mexico.
Our home has no A/C, however, the summer is cool with a window open. Climb the tallest summit in New Mexico, Wheeler Peak, at over 13000'. Fish for trout and yellow perch at Eagle Nest Lake, and anglers can ply the forest streams for cool-water trout. Hunters will find abundant elk, some deer and blue grouse nearby on National Forest land. The fall is particularly breathtaking, with the aspens coloring the mountains, or listen for the bull elk bugling in the distance....(sounds like a kid in need of clarinet lessons :).
In the winter, this family oriented ski mountain has something for all ski levels, and snowboarders love the new terrain parks. Ample snow making will keep your family on the slopes even when other resorts run out of snow. If not wanting to brave the elements, then hang around the house in front of our wood-burning fireplace and enjoy a game on PlayStation, or watch a few cartoons or movies (DVD or VCR). We also have a game/puzzle cabinet for all ages to enjoy. The home has propane heat. However, firewood is stacked underneath the deck if you decide to use the fireplace.
Shoppers and historians will enjoy Taos, a mere 35 minutes or so away, with many artisans shops, restaurants, and a lengthy history going back to the Spanish explorers hundreds of years ago. A 45 minute drive north will lead you to Red River, a ski-town with a cowboy flair. Or head south down to Santa Fe for even more variety, about 90 minutes away.
*NOTE: Our home has free Wi-Fi high speed internet, and local phone usage (Angel Fire, Eagle Nest and Taos); however, no long distance service. So, if you need to talk long distance bring your cell phone.

About the owner: John and Susan Badar live in Leander, TX and have been coming to Angel Fire, NM for over 20 years. Susan is retired from IBM and John still works for IBM, Austin, TX.
Why the Owner Chose Angel Fire: We love taking vacations in Angel Fire, be it winter or summer, the area holds such beauty. We enjoy skiing, hiking and biking, so we wanted to invest in a mountain property close to a ski resort. Angel Fire is such a beautiful area and it's a drivable distance from our home in Leander.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The home is relaxing with beautiful views of Wheeler Peak. In nice weather, we love to sit outside on the deck with some refreshments; especially in the evening to watch the breathtaking sunsets. In the winter it's fun to have a view of the ski runs from the master bedroom deck. If it's cold outside, we can sit by the cozy fire with a good book. It's a short drive to Taos, Eagle Nest or Red River which provide more choices for dining, entertainment and shopping.
