About Doug & Mary McPherson
Although Doug is from Nebraska and Mary from Texas, we have always loved New Mexico. We honeymooned here over fifty years ago. We first came to Angel Fire in 1991. In 2002 when Doug retired we built our Angel Fire home. Angel Fire is the perfect place for us and we enjoy entertaining friends and family in this beautiful spot.
Doug & Mary McPherson purchased this house in 2002
Why Doug & Mary McPherson chose Angel Fire
Northern New Mexico is not only beautiful but has a rich history and culture. It is noted for its artists and cultural events. We are in close proximity to New Mexico's finest locations. Taos is a short 40 minute drive and boasts wonderful restaurants, great galleries and shopping, the 1200 year old Taos Pueblo and special festivals and events year round. The village of Red River is nestled in a high mountain valley offering skiing, ATVs, lots of activities for the kids and old time mountain fun at its best. Enjoy a trip on the High Road to Taos, one of many scenic drives in the area or spend a day in Santa Fe, our beautiful state capital, which is a short two hour drive.
What makes this house unique
Our home has gorgeous views of the beautiful Moreno Valley. Enjoy mornings on the front porch and evenings on the back deck and patio. The Angel Fire Resort golf course is an eighteen hole course and is a joy for golfers to play. Since we are located on the fifth green of the golf course, you can enjoy watching the golfers from the back deck. We love the wildlife which surrounds us and we are uniquely situated to watch the elk, deer, Rocky Mountain Bluebirds and lots of other wildlife. Some early mornings afford the unique experience of watching young elk playing in the sand trap just out the back door. Our home is beautifully furnished and fully equipped so come and enjoy this wonderful spot.
