Overview

New Mexico Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 14

Whispering Pines Lodge is a peaceful mountain home that is ideal for a family getaway. The Lodge is a two-story home with breathtaking views of Wheeler Peak and Monte Verde Lake and it is located just 3 minutes south from downtown Angel Fire and the ski mountain.

Downstairs you will find:

1. Two bedrooms and two full baths. One of these bedrooms is the 'Bunk Room' that holds three bunk beds and a pool table. It is a great room for the kids! It has French doors that open up to the side yard where we often see deer munching on the grass. The other downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and attached full bath.

2. A large den with rock fireplace and game table perfect for puzzles or a serious game of Monopoly.

3. A large utility room with full washer and dryer.

Upstairs there are:

1. Three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The baths were completely updated in October, 2014. The bedrooms feature queen beds and large closets with plenty of extra pillows and blankets. One the bedrooms has French doors that lead out to a private deck. This deck overlooks the side yard and mountain view.

2. The upstairs family room has a wall of windows that overlook Wheeler Peak and Monte Verde Lake. This room is the perfect place to go first thing in the morning while you are sipping your coffee and relaxing with family and friends. The view is magnificent and so peaceful.

3. A large kitchen with a full dishwasher, oven, stove, refrigerator and freezer. There is also a big kitchen table that seats 10.

4. A half bath is tucked in behind the dining area. There is also an extra set of stairs on the outside of the home that you can access from the dining area.

About Denise

The Brutons and Kennemers purchased this home in the summer of 2000. We love it and enjoy being in Angel Fire several times a year.

Denise purchased this lodge in 2000

Why Denise chose New Mexico

We love the mountains and the outdoor activities available in Angel Fire, New Mexico. While in Angel Fire we often go fishing, hiking, skiing and shopping!! Our families also enjoy just hanging out at the Lodge and watching the humming birds, reading good books, and playing games.

Large home, close to town

  • 3 of 5

Pros:

Large home, good for famines with children. The property is close to town which is nice.

Cons:

It's a very dated home and needs some work, there was duct tape in the bathrooms keeping things intact.

There was not any extra dish soap, hand soap, trash bags or toilet paper. We had to make a unnecessary trip into town to get these items that are usually left in rental properties.

Might be a good idea to take pictures on arrival and departure, some of our deposit was held back as there was 'too much' laundry (even though they request you strip the beds) and stated there was a mess left which was definitely not the case.

Family Ski Vacation

  • 4 of 5

What a great way to take a large family on a ski trip. It was a good size home with plenty of room for everyone. It was just a very short drive to the slopes and town. I would use this again if and when we ever go back to Angel Fire with a large group.

Best Blessed Vacation :)

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved the cabin and Angel Fire was so beautiful. We were visited by a deer and a family of chipmunks in the morning, which added a wonderful touch. Denise was so nice and helpful, made it easy to arrange our trip. I would recommend this cabin to my family and friends, it's spacious and easy to get to.

Great property for families

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Whispering Pines Lodge over Memorial Day weekend. Three families with a total of 13 people fit well in the home. The kids took over downstairs and loved their space, including the bunk room and pool table. The kitchen had everything we needed but the stove is older. We would definitely return!

Great family getaway...

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house during the off season and found the location to be perfect - quiet, yet reasonably close to services and activities in Angel Fire, Taos and the surrounding area. The view from the house is one of the best in the area - trees, lakes and snow-capped mountains made a great backdrop for morning lounging or evening unwinding.

The "Goods"

The house has a great layout for a large family like ours (9 total - 3 couples, 2 young adults and a 2-year old). There was plenty of room to share a family meal and then seek out a bit of quiet solitude. The house was well-furnished with plenty of amenities including towels and bedding. It appeared that the house was well-insulated due to the fact that the temperature was almost constantly pleasant. Access to the house through the lockbox system worked well for our group. We really enjoyed having a full-size laundry room.

The "Not So Goods"

Upstairs bathrooms need updating (specifically shower heads). Upstairs Master bath shower whistles loudly throughout the house when in use. We found only one remote to operate two TVs. The "ski room" could use an additional switch so that there is one at each entrance. It would be more convenient if the light switches were labeled. There were several switches that we had no idea what they operated. The pool table was nice but lacked equipment - no rack, cues were limited and in poor condition. The stairs and porch on the north side need attention - there are several nail heads sticking up. An hour or so with a hammer should do the trick.

An updated stove would be welcomed. The driveway to the main house is very steep and would not be accessible during the winter without a four-wheel drive vehicle.

All of those issues were easily worked around. One issue that really needs to be addressed is the beds. The mattresses in the upstairs bedroom (with the private porch) and in the downstairs bedroom really need to be replaced. They have long passed their service life.

Overall, we had a great experience and I feel that for the price, we got a bargain. Independent reviews by our group gave it 3 Stars for sleeping comfort, 4 Stars for amenities and overall comfort and 5 Stars for location and the view. We really had a great time and would rent the house again.

Map

Directions from the north:

Turn onto Hwy 434 going South. Drive through the town. Drive past the Country Club/Golf Course (on the right). Drive past Monte Verde Lake (on the right). The house is about 1/2 mile beyond the lake on the left. There is a sign by the road that says: "Whispering Pines"

Directions from the South:

On Hwy 434: Before you get to town the house is on the right. Look for the sign that says: "Whispering Pines". If you have reached Monte Verde Lake, you have gone too far.

There is a fire pit area beside the house that is perfect for sitting around and roasting marshmallows during the summer evenings.
