Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Winter Guests: Note "SEMI"-ski in/ out description below.

Secluded 2 story log house on 2 acres, with meadow, trees, including aspen. It backs onto a 'greenbelt', adding to privacy of the location. Great mountain range views from covered back deck, which is large enough for dining and rocking chair relaxing. Located within Angel Fire Resort, but only 3 other houses within view from the property. About 2/3 way up the ski mountain (9,500'); privacy, yet access to resort.

2 master bedrooms, each w/ Queen bed and full bath; 3rd bedrm downstairs w/ bunk & trundle beds & 1/2 bath. Downstairs great room has two sofa beds. Wireless internet.

House has upstairs 'great room' and downstairs 'great room', with wood-burning fireplaces on both levels and big screen TV and bar downstairs.

WINTER: We call it "SEMI"-ski in/ ski out because you can drive a residential road 1.5 miles laterally along the ski mountain to a "green" (easy) ski run, where you can park, walk 10 yards, and ski directly onto the Angel Fire ski slopes ('semi'-ski in/ ski out). This little known access to the slopes is used by Locals. We do NOT recommend this access for those who have never skied before, but for those comfortable on their skis it's great! (Do not have to park at mountain base to access ski slope; avoid all the traffic and crowds !)

The house is on a gently sloping private 2 acres. Kids can slide down the snowy slope and cavort in the meadow, all within view of parents relaxing on the covered deck.

Summer: Resort has horseback riding, golf, tennis, fishing, etc. (Can ride horses from the resort stables up to the meadow, eat lunch, ride back down the mtn.) 4-wheeling, mountain biking, hiking, and other mountain activities available nearby. Less than 30 minutes to Taos for shopping, etc. Within 'Enchanted Circle' drive.

About The Owner

This house is owned by my brother, Terry Laughlin; sister, Sharon Nunley; and I, Lynn Laughlin. My brother is a realtor with Re/Max in Coppell, Texas; my sister is married to an independent oil and gas producer in Graham, Texas; and I am an investor located in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Angel Fire

Angel Fire, NM, is accessible by one day car drive from West Texas; Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex; and Oklahoma City areas. It is less than a mile from private access to the Angel Fire ski slopes. It is a family-oriented, somewhat remote area, but it does have a nice airport for private planes. The house feels remote, but it is within the Angel Fire Resort (only two other houses are visible from the house). It is located on 2 acres, which includes a meadow and aspen groves; and it is backed by a green belt.

What makes this house unique

Secluded family getaway. It is less than 4 miles from the village of Angel Fire and about 1 mile from private access to the Angel Fire ski slopes (for 'semi'-ski in/ ski out). Our two acres provides privacy and room for kids to roam. This house will attract summer renters who crave quiet and escape from the world, along with spectacular mountain range views. It will attract winter renters who want quick and easy access to the ski slopes-- without all the hassle of ski base traffic, congested parking lots, and large crowds. This house provides maximum seclusion and escape from the world with safety and ready access to Angel Fire. Less than 30 miles from Taos, NM, and Red River, NM, ski areas.

Great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We came here to get away from the rush of the city and loved every moment of it. We spent most of our time skiing or relaxing at the cabin. A few in our group went in to Taos and spent time at the brewery and walked around the city since it's less than an hour away.

Beautiful setting. Loved the elk, deer and hummingbirds.

  • 3 of 5

Property is in process of remodel but didn't inhibit our stay, Missed our king size bed, but made it through the queen. Rental information said they had hummingbird feeders but we could not find them. We purchased our own and had such a great time watching the birds. The hots pad in kitchen were not clean so had to wash them. Also, great for couples but the spiral stairs and lack of safety rails around stair opening would be a real concern if young children in group. We did very much enjoy our stay and setting is great for watching wildlife.

A Little Bit of Heaven on Earth

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was nice with spectacular views. Very peaceful and beautiful surroundings with obviously easy access to the Enchanted Circle. A great place to get away and enjoy some quiet time with the family.
