Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

New!!! Superfast broadband internet is now operational, just in time for the holidays.

Our comfortable condo in the Gold Creek building is very close to the Ski lifts, including the high speed quad, the 'Chili Express'. We measured the distance with a laser rangefinder, and it is only 280 yards to the Chile lift line.

Great views of Wheeler peak from here, and summers are delightfully cool and refreshing at 8600 feet elevation. Get away from that Texas and Oklahoma heat for a while, and enjoy golf, fishing, horseback riding and hiking in the beautiful Moreno valley of northern New Mexico.

The unit has no AC.... even in the summer, it is cool with a window open. Climb the tallest summit in New Mexico, Wheeler Peak, at over 13000'. Fishing for trout and yellow perch is terrific in Eagle Nest Lake, and anglers can ply the forest streams for coldwater 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 in a golden patchwork, and the wily bull elk bugling in the distance....a uniquely wild sound of the mountains.

In the winter, skiing is king, and snowboarders love the new terrain parks. Ample snowmaking will keep your family on the slopes even when other resorts run out of snow. This unit is close enough to head home for lunch and avoid those overpriced burgers at the slopes. If your younger skiers tire before the lifts shut down, they can find refuge and snuggle up in front of the toasty wood stove and enjoy a few cartoons or movies (DVD or VCR). The unit has electric radiant heat throughout, but the wood stove is more fun! Firewood is stacked behind the condo building.

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. The area is so appealing that many movie stars have their homes here, including Julia Roberts. Or head down to Santa Fe for even more variety, about 90 minutes away.

Note: Our prices are listed below. We do not collect taxes (typically another 12.5%), nor extra booking fees. We do charge a $75 cleaning fee and $50 for each well trained dog you bring along.

No telephone, bring your cell phone.

Please note: We consider reservations confirmed at the time we receive payment. Until that time, dates from your inquiries are not guaranteed.

About Steve Robertson

Angel Fire is a family oriented ski and snowboard area, the best one for families in New Mexico... and it has the fastest lifts! So when we bought a ski condo, naturally it was in Angel Fire. Our kids were 6 and 8 years old at the time.

We also love the hiking and fishing in the area, and enjoy the wonderfully cool summers as a getaway from Albuquerque. We like to go backpacking up Wheeler peak and camp in a secluded basin, and watch bighorn sheep from our camp.

Our kids are teenagers now, and they out ski us easily, but no problem... we meet up at the condo when they make it back.

Steve Robertson purchased this condo in 2000

Why Steve Robertson chose Angel Fire

Best place in NM.... a very friendly community. Angel Fire offers the best all around, year round recreation opportunities.

What makes this condo unique

Our place is so close to the lifts that we can go back to the condo for a break, nap or lunch and then continue skiing afterward.

A great location and comfortable accomodations

  • 4 of 5

This condo is a close to the slopes and convenient to the shuttle. One bedroom is just about wall to wall beds. hard to get in and out of beds. I think it would be fine for kids, but for adults, it is a little challenging. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a great family meal. There is plenty of living space. No instructions on how to connect to TV satellite. Check the input on the remote to get connected. Once you are setup it works great. Fire place was a real challenge. Make sure to pull the smallest logs you can. The fire place/furnace is tiny. It is also surprisingly difficult to get the fire going. We ran out of fire starters trying to get the fire going. Takes a while to get it warmed up, but once it is warm it is great. Small ski closet on the first floor makes life a little easier. Does not hold much, but is better than lugging everything up two flights. All in all the place does the trick. It was convenient and everything seemed to work. I would rate is somewhere between 3 and 4 stars. Not top of the line accommodations, but certainly a pleasant place to stay.

Great location. Functional Condo

  • 3 of 5

I thought our condo was very functional for our visit to Angel Fire. The location was great and price was good, but I'd say all the reviews proclaiming how nice it was over set my expectations. It's pretty consistent with the photos in terms of aesthetics. Our frustrations were more that the set up was so minimalistic - we only had two extra trashbags in the condo, almost ran out of toilet paper, very limited tools for cooking, etc. I've rented and stayed in a lot of homes and felt this was well below my past experiences. I'm noting here so guests can be prepared. Also we arrived at about 10 p.m. at night and the condo was freezing cold. The heat takes a while to get going, so that first night was pretty rough, but it was better the rest of the trip. It is directly located by the shuttle that takes you right to the lifts and they offer ski storage on the ground floor of the building, which was awesome logistically.

Nice Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is just below the MTB/Ski lift, within walking distance. Closer than most of the parking lots.

Nice condo with everything you need for a short getaway or vacation.
