About the property

Five minutes to golfing! Great deck, fire pit, fiber optic internet, & game loft

Located on an overlook above Angel Fire, NM is the “Allouette 9305” home; a perfect mountain retreat for an exceptional vacation with the family or a small group of friends. Allouette 9305 is a 2100 square foot, spacious 3 bedroom, 3½ bath home located just minutes from the town center and all of the activities that Angel Fire and the Enchanted Circle have to offer! The home comfortably sleeps 10 people on two levels.

On the lower level is the master suite with a queen size bed, full bath, and walk-in closet. Upstairs there are two bedrooms; each bedroom has a queen bed, a twin bed, twin trundle bed and a full bathroom. Each upstairs bedroom sleeps four. For alternative sleeping arrangements, there are two double Futons in the cozy loft that separates the two upstairs bedrooms; these Futons could sleep four little ones!

The 1300 square foot wrap around deck will quickly become the center of activities at the house. There is a 6-person hot tub on the deck with great views of the southern Moreno Valley. In the summer and fall, watch the morning sunrise with a cup of coffee and newspaper on the southeast side of deck with an expansive view of the Cimarron Range of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Following a busy day of outdoor activities, enjoy a late dinner amongst the lightly wooded west side of the deck with glimpses of the Moreno Valley. After dark, lay back and relax on the deck while looking up at the heavens watching for shooting stars or passing satellites! I cannot describe how truly amazing the sky is when there is minimal light pollution and dry, thinner air in the mountains! After dark you could also choose the use the outdoor fire pit! The fire pit is great for making S'mores, ghost story tellin' and memory making.

The great room features a vaulted ceiling and a stone fireplace with a gas log-lighter. On each side of the fireplace are large, energy-efficient picture windows offering beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Comfortable couches and chairs make for great conversations and relaxing or playing games with friends. There are several built-in bookshelves that are stocked with books of various genres along with a desk for those that need a place to catch up on some work or email. The home is equipped with 30mbs WiFi access throughout along with two TV's. There is a 50' LED TV/DVD in the great room while the loft has a 21' TV with a PS2 game station/DVD player.

If you enjoy cooking, you will love the spacious open kitchen, which features all major appliances including a gas range, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator/freezer with ice maker. There are five stools at the kitchen bar where guests can sit around the kitchen chatting while a pot of New Mexico style chile (chili if you are not from New Mexico) simmers on the stove. We have left a delicious recipe for Green Chile in our recipe exchange book in the kitchen.

The dining area is directly off the kitchen and seats 8 at the table. The dining room has outside views; while eating breakfast you may look out of the dining room window and see mule deer or other wildlife walking outside the home.

In addition the hot tub on the deck there is a four-person, cedar lined dry sauna available in the home. Be sure to inquire about it for guest use during your stay!

For our winter guests you will find the tiled entry to the home a convenient spot for removing snow covered winter clothes. It has room for storing your skis, ski boots and ski clothes in a main closet. In addition, the full size washer/dryer is located just off the entry so putting wet ski clothes in the dryer is easy!

Allouette 9305 is a very convenient location for families of scouts or scouters attending Philmont Scout Ranch! The home is about six miles as the crow flies from the southwest corner of the Philmont property and about a one hour fifteen minute ride to the main base camp area.

You can also view pictures of activities at the 'Allouette 9305' Facebook page!

No matter what season you come to Angel Fire, we hope you enjoy your stay at Allouette 9305!

About Bob Witowski

We are an active, outdoor-oriented family. We love activities such as skiing, backpacking, hiking, rock climbing, golf, fishing and...... Both of our children are presently in college with our oldest at Princeton studying Economics and Computer Science and our youngest at Texas A&M studying Computer Engineering. We've lived in Austin, Texas for the past 24 years.

Why Bob Witowski chose New Mexico

Bob first came to the area in 1976 as a boy scout attending a trek at Philmont Scout Ranch. Years later we came to the area as a family to enjoy skiing at the areas in Angel Fire, Red River and Taos. Bob and our youngest also attended Philmont in 2009 for a summer trek and in the fall of 2011 Bob went back for a Rock Climbing Director training program. The Angel Fire area is a spectacular year round area for outdoor enthusiasts.

What makes this house unique

Convenient location close to town yet far enough up the mountain to feel away from it all and enjoy the exceptional views.

We loved this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

What a great property! My family had a wonderful time during our stay at the cabin and we felt really comfortable. The location was perfectly situated and we enjoyed waking up to the wonderful views each morning. The rooms were well appointed and there was plenty for us to do during our downtime in the cabin (there are lots of games for the family and the hot tub was a nice break after a day on the slopes). Bob was great about replying to any questions we had and we're hoping to stay here again next year. Thank you Bob!

In one word .. PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

There isn't one thing I would change. I always travel prepared not to have enough of anything. Was extremely impressed at how well the home was stocked with dishes, pans, towels. Very clean and well kept. Each room having it's own bathroom is a huge plus. Hot tub and sauna were a huge hit. Sleds were a great bonus since our original plan got cancelled. We fed the deer by hand. Overall we have decided to make this cabin our yearly retreat. It was truly overall excellent!!!

Accommodating, Convenient, and Quaint

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable for our group of eight, and the owner [Bob] made special accommodations after getting unexpectedly snowed in another day. He sent his friend [Jason] with a snow plow to help us recover our van from the snow covered road, Jason consoled us with the fact that we were now on an extended stay and should enjoy the great skiing. I highly recommend the property for its convenient location, flexible and attentive owners, and warm family feel!

Owner's Response: So glad you got an extra day of great skiing in! Being in the mountains during a big snow storm can be challenging and fun but flexibility is key!! Sometimes you have to make the best of it and it sounds like you did! We are also happy that you enjoyed our house and Angel Fire and we look forward to your next visit with us!

We had a wonderful time! The house is exactly as described. We did not get to use the hot tub and sauna cause we spent all our time at the slopes. The view was fantastic from the living room and and beautiful view driving up and down the mountain.

Thanks Again for the wonderful experience.
