Located in Angel Fire, New Mexico, Bear Lodge is a beautiful luxury mountain lodge ideal to rent for family vacations. Deer and elk commonly roam through the property which is situated on three lots in the forest for your privacy. The houses sleep up to 16 people with 6 bedrooms. It's located just a few minutes from the ski resort, Monte Verde Lake and the golf course. Perfect for families, 'Little Bear' guest house has two twins with trundle beds, and a full size bed.
Our family enjoys sitting on the covered deck in silence (depending on the children..) viewing out through the valley all the way to Eagle Nest Lake. It's a great feeling to have a drink on the back deck (at 9000 feet!) enjoying the fresh, mountain air and/or throwing something on the gas grill!
We have hiking adjacent to the house which is great for family walks. There is a 'fort' we built in the woods which you are welcome to improve! The forest is your playground in the summer and there is plenty of room to explore.
In the winter, our lodge is perfect for snowmen and snowball fights. Put another log on the fire and enjoy the serenity.
The lodge sleeps up to 14-16 comfortably and has the following configuration:
(Main floor) - 1 bedroom with King bed and gas Kiva fireplace
(Bottom floor) - 2 bedrooms each with a Queen bed, bunk room with two twins and one queen size bed
(Little Bear Guest House) - 1 bedroom with full-size bed, a kids bedroom with two twins and trundle beds, full bath and refrigerator
We have satellite TV with many family/sports/movies and local channels. The TV has DVD player, and the second TV in master has a VCR. We have satellite WiFi and local telephone.
It has a huge, family-size dining room that seats 12 and a large open kitchen!
The house is close to the ski lift. Easy access to the hiking trails is just behind the house.
Owner would prefer long term rental. Mid fall to mid Spring on a monthly basis. Price and terms negotiable. Have your own private piece of paradise!

Our family lives in Austin, Texas. We built 'Bear House' in 2000 and want to share it with others when we are not there. Nothing would make us happier than for you to create your own unforgettable memories!
Kelly Sharp purchased this lodge in 2000
private setting, covered deck gives you year round use! Guest house gives the children their own retreat!
We had an amazing time in this beautiful lodge. The view overlooking the Angel Fire ski valley was magical, and the cabin was more than accommodating for our family of 7. Thank you for making our stay absolutely wonderful. We can't wait to return!
Excelente casa, muy buena ubicación, nos encantó poder pasar nuestras vacaciones en esta propiedad, con todas las comodidades, la cocina tiene todo lo necesario, y todas las instalaciones de lo mejor, tuvimos oportunidad de ver Elks y venados alrededor de la casa, y la vista es maravillosa, los niños estuvieron felices jugando en el fuerte, definitivamente, estaremos esperando la oportunidad de volver a rentar esta propiedad ya que toda la familia la disfruto mucho.
The Ford Bear Lodge is a stunning property. Our family enjoyed the lovely accommodations, the pretty Christmas decorations, and the awesome view!
We are looking forward to our next visit!
I highly recommend this house. We have rented lots of houses, and this is absolutely our favorite. The views were spectacular, the house was comfortable and clean. We saw deer and elk almost every day. We saw four bear and a lynx,plus lots of chipmunks. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals, and Kelly invited us to use the spices and other essentials in the kitchen. The Internet was very helpful, since I had to do wok. The hot tub was lovely,and was very much enjoyed. Kelly was wonderful to work with, and did everything we could ask for to make our vacation perfect. Oer experience was a 10 out of 10. I am hoping to go back next summer,and that is significant because we have never stayed in the same house two years in a row!!!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We had such a great time. The house is amazing. Loved the heated floors and open floor plan. The 16 of us in my group never once felt crowded. There was plenty of room for everyone. The views are "million dollar" and we saw wildlife everyday of our stay. We wish we were still there! We definately will return.
My mom, brother, sister, me and our families stayed here over Christmas (13 of us). It was even better than we imagined. The house was gorgeous! The views amazing! We were surprised by a Christmas tree and lights throughout, making it feel more festive. The information we received from the owner's daughter and the house manager was great.
It was so nice to be together in the beautiful, snowy mountains for the holidays. As my mom said...... "it was the best Christmas ever!"
