Overview

Angel Fire House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Baths, sleeps 7 in beds

Summers are glorious in this high mountain town. Days are usually in the 70s and nights are cool. AND, New Mexico's claim of 300 days of sunshine is absolutely true. This beautiful home with an elevation of 8600 feet has majestic views of Mt. Wheeler (the tallest peak in New Mexico).

Located on the fifth green of the of the Angel Fire Resort Golf Course, it is a golfers dream from mid-May through September.

Built in the Spanish Colonial style, the 1976 square foot stucco house includes a great room with living space, dining for eight, an eating bar and a lovely well equipped kitchen. The master bedroom has it's own bathroom with both a shower and a Jacuzzi tub. One guest room has a queen bed and the other a double bed. These two rooms share a bath. In addition, there is a twin size window seat in the study. Watch the sunrise from the front porch which runs the length of the house, a great place for breakfast! The back deck and patio encourage lots of outdoor dining and a relaxing place to watch the golfers play by.

Our home is just a half mile up the hill from Angel Fire's all-season multi million dollar Country Club. In addition to the pro shop, driving range and 19th hole grill, the Club House includes a state of the art Fitness Center, an indoor pool, a cozy bar and fine dining.

Adjacent to the Country Club is the Olympic Park Playground,, picnic area, children's fishing hole and fine tennis courts. Enjoy ATV tours, rafting on the Rio Grande River, mountain biking and hiking, horse back riding and many other summer and fall activities. Great fishing and picnicking abound on the Cimarron River, Eagle Nest Lake State Park and Monte Verde Lake right here in Angel Fire. Fly fishing lessons and guides are available locally.

For a real thrill, try Angel Fire Resort's Zip Line!!!

Consider a trip on the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad. This is a great trip for kids of all ages. This 1880s steam train traverses the beautiful mountains of northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado. Your whole family will enjoy a Cowboy Evening at the top of Bobcat Pass between Angel Fire and Red River. The Cowboy Evening features a hay ride, a great chuck wagon supper, cowboy poetry and story telling around the camp fire.

It is a short 40 minute drive to the historic city of Taos. Taos is rich in history including the Taos Pueblo, one of the longest continually occupied villages in North America. Noted for its many incredible art galleries, fascinating museums, great shopping and fine dining you will certainly want to spend some time in Taos. And be sure to visit our amazing state capitol of Santa Fe. It is just a 2.5 hr drive to this amazing place. If you've not visited Santa Fe before you owe yourself this treat!

In summer and fall, deer and elk, humming birds, Rocky Mountain Bluebirds, chipmunks and rabbits are frequent visitors. Enjoy them all from the front porch or back deck. Wildflowers are abundant and outside dining is a favorite pastime.

When this house was built in 2002, it was featured in the Sangre de Cristo Chronicle as the most charming new construction in the Valley. It belongs to permanent residents of Angel Fire who invite you and your family to experience mountain life at its finest.

About Doug & Mary McPherson

Although Doug is from Nebraska and Mary from Texas, we have always loved New Mexico. We honeymooned here sixty years ago. We first came to Angel Fire in 1991. In 2002 when Doug retired we built our Angel Fire home. Angel Fire is the perfect place for us and we enjoy entertaining friends and family in this beautiful spot.

Doug & Mary McPherson purchased this house in 2002

Why Doug & Mary McPherson chose New Mexico

Northern New Mexico is not only beautiful but has a rich history and culture. It is noted for its artists and cultural events. We are in close proximity to New Mexico's finest locations. Taos is a short 40 minute drive and boasts wonderful restaurants, great galleries and shopping, the 1200 year old Taos Pueblo and special festivals and events year round. The village of Red River is nestled in a high mountain valley offering skiing, ATVs, lots of activities for the kids and old time mountain fun at its best. Enjoy a trip on the High Road one of many scenic drives in the area and spend a day in Santa Fe, our beautiful state capital, which is a short 2 1/2 hour drive. Be sure to stop in Chimayo for a great lunch or dinner at the Casa de Chimayo.

What makes this house unique

Our home has gorgeous views of the beautiful Moreno Valley. Enjoy mornings on the front porch and evenings on the back deck and patio. The Angel Fire Resort golf course is an eighteen hole course and is a joy for golfers to play. Since we are located on the fifth green of the golf course, you can enjoy watching the golfers from the back deck. We love the wildlife which surrounds us and we are uniquely situated to watch the elk, deer, Rocky Mountain Bluebirds and lots of other wildlife. Some early mornings afford the unique experience of watching young elk playing in the sand trap just out the back door. Our home is beautifully furnished and fully equipped so come and enjoy this wonderful spot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is by far the best Homeaway/VRBO rental ever! Beautiful home - we were pleasantly surprised to find many common books, decor and kitchenware. We felt so much at home.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped and comfortable home for a week's stay in Angel Fire. The house was just as it was described in the listing. The homeowners went out of their way to make us feel at home!

The location was perfect, with spectacular mountain and golf course views.

The hummingbirds on the front porch were an added bonus.

We would definitely return !!

Home Away From Home During Christmas/New Year Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (a total of 6 of us) so much enjoyed staying in this beautiful home during our Christmas/New Year vacation - plenty of room for all of us. It had all everything you could ask for and then some, including the views which were extraordinary! We had white tail deer visit our yard every day (and occasionally a bunny rabbit or two) and it was so peaceful and quiet, a far cry from the city life we are used to, which was heaven. The fireplace was enjoyed by all and just sitting in the window seats looking out over the snow covered yard and the mountains took our breath away. Couldn't ask for better owners in Mary and Doug and such an easy rental process. Access to the property was quick and easy and just a couple of minutes from town. The hill behind the house was excellent for sledding and I'm sure our laughter could be heard throughout the subdivision as we enjoyed ourselves for hours. Thanks Mary and Doug for sharing your wonderful home. We hope we will be able to come again soon.
