Located in Angel Fire, New Mexico, Bear Lodge is a beautiful luxury mountain lodge ideal to rent for family vacations or a romantic getaway. Deer and elk commonly roam through the property which is situated on three lots in the forest for your privacy. The houses sleep up to 18 people with 7 bedrooms. It's located just a few minutes from the ski resort, Monte Verde Lake and the golf course. Perfect for families, 'Little Bear' guest house has two twins with trundle beds, and a full size bed in the second room.
Our family enjoys sitting on the covered deck in silence (depending on the children..) viewing out through the valley all the way to Eagle Nest Lake. It's a great feeling to have a drink on the back deck (at 9000 feet!) enjoying the fresh, mountain air and/or throwing something on the gas grill!
We have hiking adjacent to the house which is great for family walks. There is a 'fort' we built in the woods which you are welcome to improve! The forest is your playground in the summer and there is plenty of room to explore.
In the winter, our lodge is perfect for snowmen and snowball fights. Put another log on the fire and enjoy the serenity.
The lodge sleeps up to 14-16 comfortably and has the following configuration:
(Main floor) - 1 bedroom with King bed and gas Kiva fireplace
(Bottom floor) - 2 bedrooms each with a Queen bed, bunk room with two twins and one queen size bed
(Little Bear Guest House) - 1 bedroom with full-size bed, a kids bedroom with two twins and trundle beds, full bath and refrigerator
We have satellite TV with many family/sports/movies and local channels. The TV has DVD player, and the second TV in master has a VCR. We have satellite WiFi and local telephone.
It has a huge, family-size dining room that seats 12 and a large open kitchen!
The house is close to the ski lift. Easy access to the hiking trails is just behind the house.
Owner would prefer long term rental. Mid fall to mid Spring on a monthly basis. Price and terms negotiable. Have your own private piece of paradise!

Thank you so much for accommodating our large family gathering for our parent's 60th anniversary. Bear Lodge met all our needs and comforts. The home was immaculate and the kitchen was well stocked and had modern appliances. The owner, Kelly, was always easy to reach and prompt with a response. Bear Lodge is a heavenly place to get away from it all!

Winter Wonderland @ Ford Bear Lodge
Ford Bear Lodge is an incredible, wonderful place. Our two family team of 10 had an immensely comfortable and enjoyable stay. It was snowing non-stop and absolutely freezing outside but the radiant floor heating and the awesome fireplace kept us Texans very warm. The view of the mountains from the deck is like something out of a magazine.
And did it snow... wow! We had a great time sliding down the hill in the back and building score forts. And the skiing at Angel Fire was fantastic. Great slopes and great people. And finishing the day off in that awesome hot tub was icing on the cake.
The Lodge is simply great. And the owners and caretakers are equally so. Bring your camera, bring your gloves, be ready for an incredible time!
My Husband and I stayed at Bear Lodge for our wedding anniversary. It is a really special spot, the main living area is fantastic, we spent many hours hanging out by the fire, and the dining and living spaces could accommodate a large group comfortably. The layout is large and open! We really enjoyed eating out on the porch as well, the view is FANTASTIC. The hot tub was new, very clean and contemporary, and so magical to be out under the stars like that! We had so much fun and I know that the space would accommodate a much larger group very comfortably, with the bedrooms and bunk house all available. Thanks for the lovely stay!
This cabin us absolutely beautiful and has all the comforts of a home away from home. We came with a large group of moms and girls and it was a blast. The owner was so kind and helpful in accommodating our requests and was easy to reach for last minute questions. The views are spectacular and it was so nice to be secluded in the woods but so close the amenities Angel Fire and Taos have to offer for dining and shopping!
We had an amazing time in this beautiful lodge. The view overlooking the Angel Fire ski valley was magical, and the cabin was more than accommodating for our family of 7. Thank you for making our stay absolutely wonderful. We can't wait to return!
