About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Near Monte Verde Lake

Selah House

Welcome to “Selah House,” a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom multi-level mountain home tucked away in the trees close to Monte Verde lake and just minutes from Angel Fire Ski Area. This home sleeping 8-12 is ideal for groups of skiers and snowboarders, families looking for a private place with access to a variety of activities, or anyone seeking a peaceful retreat in the trees.


Although this house sits snugly in a forest of evergreens and aspens, it is easy to access from the main highway for any vehicle (no 4-wheel drive required). It is less than a ¼ mile from Monte Verde Lake, 2.5 miles from Angel Fire Country Club and Golf Course, and 3.5 miles from the ski area with a variety of shopping and restaurants.

The Great Room

Enter through the front door into a tiled entryway, perfect for storing skis and snowboards, before ascending into the beautiful great room. This large living area boasts a vaulted, wood-beamed ceiling, large windows with views of the forest, a stone fireplace enclosing a wood-burning stove, and plenty of seating. It is connected to a full kitchen and dining area that seats up to 14 comfortably and provides access to a spacious deck suitable for viewing stars or wildlife. Alternatively, stay inside and view the game on the 60-inch flat-screen TV.

The Bedrooms

Upstairs, the master bedroom features vaulted, wood-beamed ceilings, large windows looking into the trees, a queen size bed, and a recently renovated bathroom with a walk-in shower. The three downstairs bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, share a recently renovated bathroom. The larger of the rooms also has a sturdy set of wooden bunk beds. Fold-out couches in the great room provide two additional queen-sized mattresses. There is a new full bath with tub on the mid-level for our renter's convenience.

Kid and pet friendly

The downstairs bathroom features a “potty-training” toilet seat, a bathtub with a removable shower-head, and a stepping stool for little legs. Upstairs in the great room, use the provided baby gates to create a safe play area for toddlers, or head into the yard where you’ll find ample play space among the trees and a small personal sledding hill at the back of the property (sleds provided).

About Mark Mattay

Hi, we're Mark and Lynn from the Dallas TX area. We've been visiting Angel Fire for 19 years. All four of our kids learned to ski there. And all of those years we've been renting.

About 10 years ago we started praying and saving for a house in Angel Fire NM to share with our family, friends, missionaries, and others in ministry. Our dream became reality July 2013. Selah House is a place to pause and rest, to regroup, and we hope, to laugh, and to play - maybe even launch an adventure. Stay at Selah House and leave a review. Include a few smiles :) We hope you'll do a lot of smiling while you're there.

Mark Mattay purchased this house in 2013

Great Location and home

  • 5 of 5

Four adults and four kids spent 3 nights here during Spring Break. It is a nice, quiet location within minutes of skiing and the stores in town. We were able to sleep comfortably without using couches and even though it is a multi-level home, it is easy to get up and down the stairs (Even when you are a little sore from a day on the slopes). We took advantage of the outdoor grill one night and used the stovetop another for dinner and they definitely have all the amenities you need for meals. Mark was super easy to deal with during and after the booking process and gave us very detailed information on everything we needed during check-in/check-out. The kids really enjoyed using the sleds back behind the house and we saw a dozen deer every night and morning. We definitely found a place we would love to stay again.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Selah House. It was exactly as described. A place of rest and refreshment. This was our Christmas gift to our grown children and their families. 3 Families; 6 adults 2 elementary aged girls and a 1-yr old... the 4 bedrooms gave us plenty of room to spread out. The large living/dining/kitchen all on the middle level allowed ample space for games, watching the Olympics and eating together. we were a little concerned about the low snow fall but the mountain was well groomed and fun for our group ... then a special blessing of 9 inches of snow the night before our last ski day topped off the trip. We had a blast and made for great family memories. We would wholeheartedly recommend this property ... we will be back -- Thanks Selah House for the pause, and rest you provided!

We truly enjoyed our time at Selah House! Very well equipped home with daily visits from nature!

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we needed and much more. The only thing we looked for and couldn’t find was a bird book. 😉?. They provide bird feeders to hang and that is a must. We all loved watching the different varieties of birds daily. We also had mule deer pass by the house every morning. The owners even provide wood for the fireplace or outdoor fire ring, The beds were comfortable, I believe each bed had a memory foam. We were all very impressed with the accommodations! The owner was easy to contact and replied quickly. Only 4 of us stayed in the home but we commented it would be a great house for a family trip.
