PASSIVE SOLAR HOME/HUGE GLASS WINDOWS FACING SOUTH

Angel Fire House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Our Passive Solar home sits at 8800 feet above sea level. All the large glass windows face South.

Open the drapes during the day on sunny days to allow the sun to heat the home. Close the drapes before sundown to preserve the heat.

A large wood burning fireplace with ducting and fans will warm the second floor living area quite well. Plenty of cut wood is available for the fireplace.

Base board heating is in the downstairs bedrooms. With the bedroom doors closed, the bedrooms stay quite warm.

The laundry room is across the hall from the galley type kitchen.

The master bedroom with queen down the hall from the living area. There are 2 bedrooms downstairs, one a king, one a queen. A bedroom upstairs in the loft with twin beds. 2 futons are also in the loft balcony.

We try to keep the carpet clean by removing our shoes at the door.

In winter 4x4 or chains may be necessary. The road is wide and graded. There is a steep spot prior to my home, and the driveway has a slope. The driveway is long enough that

several cars can be parked off the road without getting on

the slope.

For the maid service to have time to prepare for the next guests, we ask you arrive after 4pm, and depart prior to 9am. These times are flexible if there are no guests arriving or departing and the same day.

My children and I are residence of Oklahoma. We went to Colorado in 1986 to learn to ski, and have enjoyed winter sports since then. I traded my skis for a Snowboard in 2003.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Having enjoyed family fun with winter sports for many years, we decided to get something more permanent. Something my grandchildren could grow up with.

My home in Angel Fire is 2 miles from the ski lodge. Sits on 1.5 wooded acres. Up on a slope with views to the south. The road to the home is paved till the last 1/2 mile. There it is wide and graded. 4X4 or chains may be needed as there is a steep grade prior to the home that can get icy in winter.

Casual Accommodations Conveniently Located near Angel Fire Resort

Just returned from our stay...the accommodations exceeded our expectations. The house comfortably accomodated two families of four and there were futons for a few more people, if necessary. The kitchen was well furnished. Note that the house comes with a dishwasher, microwave, washer/dryer, and WIFI. While the house is located on the opposite side of the highway than the Resort, it takes only minutes to arrive at the slopes. The passive solar energy reference had us somewhat worried, but the solar heat alone was more than adequate. If you plan to see any snow during your stay, a 4x4 or chains are strongly recommended. The house is minutes from the local market and several good restaurants -- Angel Fired Pizzas, Hatcha's Grill, and Zebs. If side trips are in the cards, Red River and Taos are a short 45-minute scenic drive away. The owner is helpful and responsive. A return trip is defintely in the cards!

This house was perfect for the entire family. Large house with plenty of beds and space. The large fire place kept the house warm at night, and the sun through the windows kept it warm during the day. The view from all the balconies was breath taking. We stay in town last year, and really enjoyed being up the mountain and out of town in this home vs. the smaller condo last year. Would highly recommend and more than likely return. As for the beds and trash, everywhere I've stayed in Angel fire required this, it's not out of the ordinary.

My family and I rented this nice house for our 'first annual family ski trip'. All of us were very comfortable in the home. The scenery from inside and out on the decks was amazing; especially with the snow! We were all in agreement that we would stay there again if it is available. The convenience to the ski lift and grocery store/dining was great.

The early checkout time and having to take the trash to town was a little inconvenient but we managed. It would probably not keep us from renting this house again in the future.

First Visit to Angel Fire

We really enjoyed this home in Angel Fire...beautiful views and very comfortable home. Plenty of wood to burn and the home stayed warm enough just with the fireplace. the only negative was we had to strip our beds and take the trash with us.....not a big deal but when you are on vacation this is minimal stuff that the maid could easily handle. Thanks for such a good stay!! We will consider returning next year!
