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 New Mexico

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.

The property is beautiful! The house was nicely renovated and the space around the house is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house is quite a ways up the moutanin (4 miles), which feels like a long ways in the snow. However, snow plows are always on the road and it is pretty easy driving. The house itself is beautiful and the upstairs was recently renovated and it is amazing! The views are also incredible. Our favorite part was how much space was around the house. We brought both of our big dogs and they absolutely loved all the area to run around! We would definitel stay at this location again!

Great Skiing Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nice. The circle driveway allows plenty of room for parking. The house is large and has 3 single beds, 2 sofa beds, 2 queen beds, and a fairly large couch that was used as a bed. The house is perfect for two families because of the two bedrooms for the adults and the downstairs, including the 3rd bedroom, for all of the kids. The fireplace was great and all the wood you'll need is stacked and ready to go. The house is very close to the ski slope as described on the listing. It was great!

Family Wants to Come Back!

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice house and certainly lives up to it's billing. I don't think the pictures do it justice because the views are spectacular and each room is very comfortable. It's a great place to relax. The kitchen has everything you need to cook for lots of hungry skiers! The beds are super comfortable. I'm sure we'll be back.

My Rating: Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time skiing and my first trip to New Mexico. We had a blast! This cabin is exactly how the pictures describe. The bathrooms were so clean you could eat off the floor. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils and even condiments for coffee etc. The best thing about it is that unlike some of the other houses on that street you don't have to traverse a steep driveway to get to the house, it's nice and level so when things get icy you have no worries. The back decks were amazing, there was plenty of cut firewood so all we had to do was toss it in and make a fire. There were only three of us for this trip since the rest of our family could not join us but this house clearly had plenty of room for at least 10 people. The large basement is perfect for kids. I wish we'd had more time here but we'll definitely be back.

Beyond expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for sharing your place in paradise with my family which consist of my wife and our eight and twelve year olds. Felt like home with all the amenities necessary. Its exactly what we needed. Peaceful,

relaxing, quite with incredible views and all the warmth and comfort of home. We put our feet up and breathed the fresh mountain air on the covered back porch. Very private and didn't notice neighbors. Turns out it was a convenient base camp for our many adventures of the

Enchanted Circle, including Red River, Eagle Nest, Taos, Cimaron, Los Alamos and Bandelier National Park. Not to mention all the historical sites and museums. The wildlife provided many photo opportunities; bear, deer, elk, antelope, wild turkey, rainbow trout, eagles and a herd of Buffalo near Cimaron. Highly recommended for the family. Looking forward to next summer and revisiting.
