Wonderful location made for a perfect ski vacation
This comfortable home was perfectly situated on the Headin' Home trail of the Angelfire Ski Resort. We got dressed every morning and walked right onto the slope and cruised down to the base where we bought our lift tickets for the day. The teens could ski right up to the house anytime they wanted for meals, which we kept warm in a crock pot. That access was such a wonderful convenience I'll never be able to tolerate a generic hotel room for ski trips again!
The huge table in the dining area (seats 10 comfortably) was wonderful - it allowed both of our families to sit together and enjoy mealtime. The house had great wi-fi and cable, so in the evenings we were still able to watch movies and update our Facebook pages with wonderful pictures of the house and our snow adventures. :)
The home was well equipped with all the daily necessities of life, which was nice when we forgot mundane things like napkins, salt and pepper, or paper towels. There were even small space heaters to dry out all our ski gear after a long, wet day on the slopes. The wood burning stove was a nice touch (very toasty!) and we used it on two or three occasions. We sent the boys out into the woods to gather up some wood.
There was plenty of room throughout Section B for 9 of us to stretch out and relax, and it really felt like we were in a friend's home - it was that comfy.
Next to the fabulous ski in/ski out feature of this property (which I can't rave enough about), the view from Section B is breathtaking. Big plate glass windows in the living area allowed us to enjoy the view to the fullest, and my husband enjoyed sitting on the porch cooling off after some long ski runs.
The house is a good 15 minute twisty drive from town/Angelfire base, and can be iffy in snowy conditions, so I have to concur that 4WD or chains are a must. The driveway is VERY steep.
All in all, we truly enjoyed our stay in this very nice home. This was the first time I've ever invested in a private vacation home rental (it always seemed a little too personal for me before), but now that I've done it and had such a great experience, I look forward to doing so again.
Thank you, Rosemary, for all the helpful info ahead of time, and thank you, Flahertys, for the lovely stay in your vacation home.
