About Gay Dippel

Texas is great - most of the time. NM makes you never want to go home! The air is crisp, the scenery breath-taking! We purchased this home as a family retreat and tried to set it up as such. You will find our home very warm and welcoming. It is a fun, family oriented space, inside and outside! We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do and that you will feel right at home!

Gay Dippel purchased this house in 2012

Why Gay Dippel chose Angel Fire

Our family has spent many Christmas vacations in Angel Fire and a summer or two in Red River. Once we decided to purchase a second home, there was no question about the place. We also knew we wanted a fireplace, a mountain design and near the lifts. We half way chose this house when we drove up, but confirmed it when we walked in the door.

What makes this house unique

Master Suite with private access to deck, Hot Tub, Decks, decks, decks. Large rock fireplace and cedar paneling. Over 1 acre of forest that backs to Lady Slipper Trail and only 3 blocks from Monte Verde Lake.

Beautiful House

  • 4 of 5

The House was exactly what we needed for us and our kids / grand kids (13 of us). The house was about 10 minutes to the slopes and the scenery was beautiful in between. There's a wonderful lake nearby (frozen while we were there) and it was no trouble finding our way back and forth to the slopes. It worked out perfectly for us.

The cleaning crew could probably do a little better job between visitors. We found some clothing under furniture (including a soiled pair of underwear) and there was a muddy area in front of the driveway that caused minor issues for 2 wheel drive vehicles. Also - there was a hot water heater issues (which was not good with 13 people needing hot water). Keith the plumber was on the scene for 2 days and had it working great. Overall it was a great trip and we have many family memories because of it. We thought the house worked really well for us.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your reviews! They are what keeps people and places on the up and up. We take pride in our 5 star reviews! While no doubt the 4 stars was because it is a 5 star home with obvious issues during this stay, we will of course address each one. We are very open in communications with our guests. While we have a local property management team, we openly communicate directly with our guests. The tankless hot water heater had an intermittent issue that we have been diligently addressing. Unfortunately, it interfered during the stay and we are so glad Keith got the issue permanently resolved. Mud is not typically an issue in March. With the heavy snows and major melt downs this year, along with snow plows moving gravel along with snow, it can happen. We are sorry this was an issue. Each spring we gather up and re-gravel the drive . The house keeping issue is inexcusable and has already been addressed with property management. We expect our management team to keep our home in an order that we expect when we ourselves arrive. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay in our home and welcome you to return any time.

Enchanted Stay in the Enchanted Circle

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week long stay with our family at Angel's Envy and this home was the perfect accommodation! There was plenty of room for three different families plus kids! The hot tub and hiking nearby were great additions. The house is also conveniently located for being home base to quickly navigate to all the other amazing stops Northern New Mexico has to offer. We really enjoyed the home for our vacation as it lacked nothing!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to have as our home while on vacation. The location was perfect to take in adventures in Taos, Red River, and mountain fly fishing! This home has everything you need. We had a baby and there was even a gate to block the stairs. With 4 private bed rooms and 3 full baths, this exceeded what we needed to be comfortable. The bunk loft was fun for the 3 year old as well. This has a great deck, hot tub and fire pit for evening relaxing. The dining table is large enough for the whole family to eat together and take in some family board games. I highly recommend this property!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long stay with our extended family and this cozy home was perfect! There was plenty of room for all of us with some to spare. The deck and hot tub were such a treat after fun filled days of golfing, hiking, fishing, zip-lines, etc. We highly recommend a stay at Angel's Envy!!
