Comfortable Home 3 Blocks From The Slopes. Available For Cool Summers.

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with Mountain Views, flat driveway, (sleeps 6 - 8).

Welcome to our listing for Badar Mountain Cabin! We absolutely LOVE Angel Fire, NM, so we built our vacation home here 20+ 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.

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

About Susan Badar

John and Susan Badar live in Leander, TX and have been coming to Angel Fire, NM for over 23+ years. Susan and John are both retired from IBM.

Susan Badar purchased this house in 1998

Why Susan Badar 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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great Place and Location!

  • 5 of 5

The Badar's have a lovely home in a great neighborhood. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and enjoyed the decks on each side of the house. The location is super. A short walk to the grocery store and just a few blocks to the ski lift area. The house is centrally located to all of the activities. The kitchen is well equipped and a great selection of spices is available. The layout of the home is good for families with the master upstairs with another queen bedroom. Downstairs is a full bath with a bedroom with a queen and bunkbeds which was just right for our family. I would highly recommend this home! Thank you for a great getaway!

Great, comfortable home close to the slopes!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great for our family of 6. Great location, very close to the slopes. The kitchen had everything in it you’d need! The game cabinet was a huge hit. It snowed when we were there so the sled was a huge hit as well! Very accommodating, comfortable home. Perfect for our first trip to Angel Fire! Thank you for sharing it with us!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

House close enough to walk to lots of things in Angel Fire. Kitchen worked really well for us - great stove, loved the griddle. We spent hours on the decks - eating, watching humming birds, blue birds, mountain jays, flickers, and deer, reading, and just enjoying the views of Wheeler and amazing sunsets. Plenty of room for us to hang out inside when we weren't running, biking, hiking or shopping.
