I am a retired firefighter from El Paso Texas, my wife is a teacher and a life time El Pasoan. I am originally from Washington State, close to the Canadian border. I moved to the southern border 35 years ago and have missed the green mountains of my youth. But I also grew to love the Southwest with its rich Hispanic culture. Cloudcroft was the perfect mix of both worlds. My children all love the outdoors, they are all avid mountain bikers, snowboarders and skiers. Cloudcroft has been our perfect destination for winter fun and to escape the heat of the desert in the summer.

We love Cloudcroft and we love the mountains. This home is large enough for a family get together and private and intimate for a romantic getaway. Its located just ten miles east of Cloudcroft so it much more private and quiet than in town. There are paved, maintained roads, all the way to our driveway. so its easy to get to all year round.
We are located inside of one of the Cloudcroft areas nicest subdivisions, yet you feel that you are in the middle of the national forest. You can not see any of neighbors, unless you climb to the top deck and peek through the trees. We have a private fishing pond (sorry, fishing is limited to property owners only), but you can walk around the pond, see the ducks or picnic on the banks of the pond. We also have a nice tennis and basket ball court. We are close by to the Lincoln National Forest for hiking, and four wheeling. We just completed a six month complete remodel of our home and it is in like new condition.
