About the property

Mountain Home, 5 bedrms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 11-13 With Private Valley in back

Thanks for viewing our listing! We’d love for you to come and stay in our Mountain Serenity home in Angel Fire, New Mexico! 'Mountain Serenity' is a beautiful luxury mountain home ideal for creating family memories. We think you’ll prefer our home over others and here’s why:

** We have owned and rented this house for 11 years and as a result, we are experienced in knowing what families want and need from their vacation home. We actively seek feedback from our guests and every year we invest in maintenance and improvements to keep the home looking its best. Our house is kept very clean. Our furniture is always up to date – most recently, in October 2016 we purchased new furniture for the living room and gameroom and in November 2016 we added a hot tub on the deck.

**The house has a spectacular view of a private valley where all you see are trees and sky and wildlife, and the house is on 3 lots so it’s secluded and private, yet it’s so close to town- only 1 mile to the grocery store and 2 miles to the ski lift or golf course.

**It sleeps up to 13, which is ideal for 2-3 families. It has 4 bedrooms (king, 3 queens) and a kids room (bunk beds, another twin) and sleeper sofa in the gameroom. It has 2-1/2 bathrooms.

**We provide the backdrop for creating great family memories in your mountain getaway away from the big city, such as a hot tub on the porch, decks with rocking chairs and porch swings where you can have coffee or happy hour and watch the wildlife, an outdoor firepit (and we provide a stocked wood pile too) to gather around while making s’mores and telling stories, a log see-saw and outdoor fort for the kids to enjoy, sleds in the winter and access to the Angel Fire trail system just behind the house from which you can walk all around Angel Fire.

**The house is fully stocked for you with everything you’ll need for your stay – linens and towels, hair dryers, detergent for washing machine and dishwasher, shampoo & body wash, kitchen soap, paper towels, napkins, spices and olive oil. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need – even if you’re cooking Thanksgiving dinner! All you need to buy is the food!

If you’re intrigued, read on for more details.

BEDROOMS/SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS:

Our house has 3 floors so everyone can spread out and have their own space. The top floor has 2 bedrooms with queen beds and a full bathroom. The main floor has a master bedroom with a king bed and full bathroom with shower and Jacuzzi tub. There is also a half-bath on the main floor. The bottom floor has a bedroom with a queen bed, a sleeper sofa in the gameroom and a kids’ room separated by a curtain with a set of bunk beds and an elevated twin bed. Bedrooms and bathrooms are fully stocked with pillows, linens/blankets, towels, shampoo and body wash, hair dryers and hand soap.

LIVING AREAS:

Your group will enjoy spreading out in the multiple living areas in the house. The main floor has a living room with comfy furniture and a gas fireplace. The living room is part of a great room area connected to the kitchen and breakfast eating area – one of my personal favorite times is when you are in the house during a snowstorm – watching snow fall across the valley onto the trees is just magical. On the lower floor is the gameroom where families can gather to play air hockey or watch TV together or play cards, games or puzzles – all provided for you. The kids’ room is a fun haven for the little ones with board games, stuffed animals and toys.

KITCHEN/DINING

Creating and eating meals together is another way to create great family memories and the Mountain Serenity home provides everything you need. Our kitchen features stainless appliances, a double oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, coffee makers (regular and a Keurig), blender, griddle, crockpot. All plates, glassware, baking/cookware, pots, pans, utensils are all provided. In addition, we have a cabinet full with olive oil, flour, sugar, and spices to get you started. And on the front covered porch is a gas grill.

For dining seating, we have several options – there are 2 barstools at the kitchen counter, a breakfast table that seats 4 and also a full dining room with doors that close for privacy and a huge table that seats 8 people.

ENTERTAINMENT INDOORS:

We aim to provide the ingredients for everyone to have fun and be entertained while inside the Mountain Serenity home. The gameroom has an air hockey table, TV with DVD player, a card table and puzzles and games. The living area has a sound system with radio and connections for your smart phone to play music that way. The house has internet and wifi. There’s also a TV and DVD player in the master bedroom.

ENTERTAINMENT OUTDOORS:

Outside, we aim to provide the setting for fun family memories. The back of the house has a deck with rocking chairs and side tables – great in the summertime, having coffee in the morning or happy hour in the afternoon, taking in the mountain air and spotting wildlife in the valley which are most commonly seen around dawn and dusk. The front porch is covered and has a porch swing and table and chairs – great for watching kids play in the yard or sitting and staying dry while watching a rain shower or snow storm. There’s a gas grill on the covered back porch as well for grilling in summer or winter. The front yard has a firepit with stocked wood pile for family gatherings in winter or summer. On the front porch is the hot tub, perfect for family conversations and relaxation after skiing or hiking. Relax on the hammock in the yard in the summer while watching the kids play on our homemade see-saw or while they play in and add to our kids’ fort. It’s so nice to watch kids explore nature in our huge yard and the woods beside our house – and in the summers here where the temperature is in the 70s, kids play outside all day long – like when we all grew up. In the winter, our driveway is perfect for sledding (we provide the sleds) and the yard perfect for snowmen and snowball fights.

The Angel Fire hiking trail system is adjacent to the house and is great for family walks (the "Elk" trail is directly behind our house and there's a trail from our back yard to get to it). You can walk to the grocery store from these trails and walk all around Angel Fire from these trails.

LAUNDRY ROOM/MUD ROOM

Entering the house from the garage is our mud room/laundry room. It has ample hooks for coats and rubber mats for boots. We have a front load washer and dryer with provided detergent and dryer sheets. There is another area inside the front door with boot mats and a hall closet for coats so everyone can spread out.

PARKING/GARAGE:

When you get to the house, we have a garage to park your vehicle in, which you’ll appreciate in the winter. Our house sits down from the road so the driveway slopes down to the house. We spend a lot of time and expense maintaining the driveway so that it’s easy for people to get down and less intimidating for those who aren’t used to driving in the snow. Our property manager will have the driveway plowed and cindered after a storm and you are able to request additional plowings at any time should you need them. There is also a parking spot halfway down the driveway or you can also park at the top.

HAVE A LARGER GROUP OR WANT A DIFFERENT PROPERTY?

We also own the house next door and it's available for rent if you want a different configuration or you have a big group that wants to rent houses close to each other. You can find more information about our property called Elk Glade at www.homeaway.com/3834316. We also have other properties that we rent in Angel Fire: see a list of all of our properties at www.mountainserenityrentals.com

About Cheryl Harte

Our family is from the Dallas, TX area. We have been coming out to Angel Fire for about 11 years and we love to escape to cooler temperatures there in the summer and just love the snow and activities in the winter.

We bought our first rental property at that time and have spent these years developing our experience of working with travelers to provide memorable vacation experiences. We bought a 2nd rental property in 2014 (www.homeaway.com/3834316) and travelers have enjoyed that home as well. In 2017, through our company Mountain Serenity Rentals, we have begun to market properties for other owners. Our plan is to be very selective about the properties we'll market, looking for the ones that will best fit what travelers look for in vacation rentals.

Why Cheryl Harte chose New Mexico

We love this property for the proximity to town, an easy 5 min drive. Yet, the property is secluded and has a private valley in the back with gorgeous views. And the house is just the style you'd only see in the mountains, like nothing you'd see in Dallas - such a great mountain getaway

What makes this house unique

I've always loved the look of this house as you drive up to it. It just has that feel of what you'd picture a mountain home to be. I love the layout of the 3 floors so your group can spread out. And one of my favorite aspects is that is sits on a private valley where deer and elk come to play and it's just so magnificent to watch.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We truly enjoyed our vacation in Angel Fire in this beautifully appointed vacation property. It had everything we needed and provided all the comforts of home that you would enjoy during a holiday. There is even a huge jacuzzi tub in the master's bedroom where you can just relax! The huge spaces in the living room and the dining room were perfect for our family to hang out between activities for our family reunion held three houses away. The convenience of the vacation rental property next door being occupied by family members also even made it double the fun to share and enjoy the unique features these houses offered (for example, the hot tub/spa next door!). This particular place really lives up to the word "Serendipity" especially when sitting on the rocking chairs on the deck looking out on the awesome landscape of the green trees and the pathway for walkers and bikers. We even had a close-up photo op with a visiting elk! The only drawback is the steep driveway to the house, but we didn't have any problem driving our van all the way to the garage. Thank you for keeping the place so beautifully furnished, clean, comfortable and enjoyable for our vacation in Angel Fire!

Amazing home and location!

  • 5 of 5

Mountain Serenity is a beautiful home with the best location. Nicely secluded but less than 5 minutes away from the grocery store, restaurants, ski resort, chair lifts, etc. We will definitely stay there again!

Anytime of Year - Mountain Serenity is Tops! - Location, beauty, amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 3 incredible, relaxing, fun-filled days at Mountain Serenity. Beautiful peaceful outside deck overlooking scenic wildflower meadow and aspen/spruce filled woods w/miles any skill level of hiking/dirt biking trails traversing the entire area. The area is teeming with wildlife (elk herd, deer, humming birds, etc.). We did s’mores by the evening fire after hot tub! Hiked morning and evening. Rafted and toured Rio Grande Gorge area -STUNNING! Zip-lined @ AF Resort across the street. Several craft beer breweries nearby. The house is spacious w/fully equipped kitchen (every appliance/pot/tool) if you want to stay in and cook. Great grocery store nearby. Can’t wait to get back there for the winter season!

Very well equipped house in a relaxing location.

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl was wonderfully helpful throughout our exploration process, answering endless questions in a very timely matter. We found the house very comfortable and enjoyed the Angel Fire environs. Two of our party made it to the top of Wheeler Peak (13,161'). All of us spent a great amount of time look for, and subsequently watching, the wildlife in the meadow. Our suggestion is that, unless you arrive in a 4-wheel drive vehicle, you heed Cheryl's advice about the need to back down the drive. There is room for a 3-pt turn in front of the garage, but not much.

Perfect summer getaway for family

  • 5 of 5

Mountain Serenity home was lovely and very well located in Angel Fire. We had plenty of room for 8 people, including 2 kids. The house is nicely appointed with everything you could need, esp the kitchen. Washer and dryer were wonderful. Fire pit in front is great for smores! View in the back is spectacular. Deer came right up to the house-treat for the kids. Plenty of things to do in the area in summer. Our visit could not have been better!!!

amazing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at mountain serenity for a ski trip and absolutely loved it. Amazing views in the morning with plenty of deer to look at. There were 12 of us and everyone slept comfortably. Only a short 5 minutes for the base of the mountain. The home was everything we had hoped it would be.
