About the property

The Perfect Place For Family And Friends To Gather Year Round

Our home provides enough beds to accommodate up to eight adults and three or four children with three separate living spaces. Two master bedrooms and baths on each end of the main living area offer privacy and space. Each master also has its own access to the deck which overlooks the valley below. One of the masters has a crib available to accommodate a small child. Two more bedrooms and a separate sleeping area with bunk beds on the lower level have easy access to a bath and shower on that level and a comfortable living area with satellite TV. An open, spacious living area on the main level with a fireplace, satellite TV and incredible views provides a comfortable gathering space. The deck off the living area offers spectacular views and warmer weather seating. A dining table that seats 6 is just off the well-equipped kitchen, and another table and chairs are available to expand the seating to 10. There is additional bench seating at the kitchen island plus a high chair. Also on the main level is a half bath, a full size pantry and a laundry room with a washer and dryer. The loft above the main living area has a full bath and includes a sleeper sofa, chairs and satellite TV. A two car garage gives guests the convenience of parking out of the weather, plus two separate driveway entrances/exits help when road conditions are not at their best. Note: Winter conditions in and around Angel Fire, including our driveway, pose driving risks and roads that often require a four wheel drive. We recommend four wheel drive during the winter.

About Owner/Property Manager

Numerous family mountain and ski trips to New Mexico, Colorado and Utah over the years instilled in us the desire to one day own a mountain retreat of our own. We found the Angel Fire community to fill all of our needs, including golfing, hiking, biking, sledding, skiing, fishing, rafting and much more.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2015

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Angel Fire

Our home fulfilled all of our priorities in selecting a mountain house. It has enough bedrooms, bathrooms and living space to accommodate our ever expanding family, it has the spectacular views of the mountains and valley we wanted, it is situated in a friendly community, and it is only a ten hour drive from our primary residence.

What makes this house unique

Views, space, comfort, convenience.

Great mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Angel Fire. The house was perfect with great views from the deck and more than enough room for everyone.

Owner's Response: Danny was great to work with. He was easy to communicate with and conscientious. He even moved an unexpected package delivery to the garage for us!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The views from this home are amazing. We loved our stay and the entire family comfortably enjoyed the extra space and bedrooms. The kids entertained themselves "quietly" downstairs while the adults enjoyed a well stocked kitchen and made drinks by the fireplace. I highly recommend this property!

Nice And warm stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of Christmas in Angel Fire and this cabin was perfect! The house was very warm and cozy and had all the amenities that we wanted. The driveway was steep and a four wheel drive was definitely needed as stated on the advertisement

Had a great stay

  • 5 of 5

We found this house to be very well equipped. We stayed for four days for a ski trip and there was absolutely nothing that we needed that the house didn't have. We especially liked the three separated living areas so that our families could have their own space at night.

The homeowner had recommended that we not take any 2 wheel drive vehicles down the steep driveways to the house. We had 4 inches of snow the first night we were there and were very glad that we took her advice. The four-wheel-drive pick up came out but not easily. I'm sure that a 2 Wheel Drive vehicle of any kind would not have made it. The drive to the slopes was a bit dicey but the snow plows had it cleared quickly. Again just as promised by the homeowner.

We loved the fireplace and there was plenty of firewood. There were snow shovels for digging out and sleds for the kids. This house was very clean when we arrived and everything was just as the owner had said it would be.

We highly recommend this house.

Car: not necessary

Angel Fire provides an ideal venue for families to enjoy year round. Our home is located up the mountain from the base about three miles, however you don't have to go to the bottom of the mountain each day to begin your skiing adventure. There are two skier drop off locations about five minutes from our home, one further up the mountain and the other about halfway down the mountain.
