Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9 to 11...max 9 adults)

WINTER snow and sports, SPRING flowers, SUMMER golf, tennis, fishing, and hiking, and FALL foliage. What is your favorite season?

Every season in Angel Fire offers natural beauty and special experiences for the getaway vacation retreat you need. Enjoy the season of your choice in our beautifully decorated mountain home. Nestled amongst aspen, fir, and pine at 8600 feet, views and scenic beauty abound, and you will be comfortable in our bright and open feeling home with three bedrooms, two baths, sleeping loft, cathedral ceiling glass front living/dining room, fully-equipped kitchen, and spacious wraparound deck.

The home's location provides easy access to Angel Fire Village and Resort facilities, about 2 miles for skiing or golf, groceries, dining, horseback riding, children's activity area, and lake fishing. It is a short walk to Kit Carson National Forest trails for hiking and mountain biking. The historic and cultural richness of Taos (30 miles) and Santa Fe (90 miles) are close enough to experience.

Entering the front door, you will begin to get the feel for the comfort of the house in the anteroom with recessed bench and coat hooks for adding or removing layers of clothing and changing footwear. Pleasant art work begins in the anteroom and continues throughout the house.

Furniture and decor in our home is a mix of southwest and antique. Antique winter sports equipment is attached to the walls of the 28-foot cathedral ceiling living/dining area which is to the front of the house with large glass windows from floor to ceiling. The living area has a wood-burning stove, over-stuffed southwest sofa, and an entertainment area with TV and CD player. The dining area features an antler chandelier and large comfortable chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware, and Dansk pottery dishes ready to be used.

The two downstairs bedrooms share a bath; one bedroom has a queen-sized bed with antique headboard, and the other has an antique double-sized brass bed. The master bedroom upstairs has an antique cherry bedroom set with queen-sized spool bed, a private bath, an adjacent sitting area with a single bed/couch, and large windows looking through the cathedral ceiling living/dining area out the front of the house.

All of the bedrooms have ceiling fans and ample closet space. There is a Sleeping Loft which is a small room off the stairway with a double mattress...close the half door and you have a private cozy quiet sleeping space for two. There are two children sized foam chairs that fold out to make comfortable beds for little people.

Beds are as follows: 2 queen, 2 double, 1 single, 2 fold out chair beds for small children...Our home can accommodate a maximum of 11 …4

beds for 2, 1 bed for 1, 2 fold outs for small children...4 separate spaces.

The entry, hallway, kitchen, downstairs bath, and dining area floors are tiled. The living area is wood floor, while the rest of the house is carpeted. Clothes washer and dryer are available in a closet off the downstairs hallway. Heat is provided by a forced-air propane furnace.

We ask that you NOT SMOKE in the house, and that you NOT BRING PETS.

The large wraparound deck has a gas grill, chiminea, large umbrella table, chairs, lounge chairs, covered area, and ample bench seating. If you are a smoker, ash trays and cigarett recepticles are on the deck. When you smoke outside, remember to be extremely cautious as FIRE DANGERS in a mountain forest site with a wood home and deck are ever present.

Come enjoy the natural beauty of the mountains in a comfortable home-away-from-home. Check in with the home front as long distance telephone calls are free. A wifi fiber optic internet connection is available, so bring your laptop. Dish Network Family package with local channels is available for tv viewing.

Very large groups (up to 40) can be accomodated by renting the Bunker Hill house next door, and the Bunker House across the street. A great option for family reunions, wedding parties, or any large group occassion. Contact us for more information.

About Guy George

Hi, we are Guy and Kay George, owners of the George Cabin in Angel Fire, New Mexico. We are retired, and live in Gainesville, Texas. We have 3 children, and 1 grand daughter. Our 3 children live in Gainesville, Texas; London, England, and Dallas,Texas. We get to our house in New Mexico often. We enjoy winter sports, golf, and square dancing. We ran a Bed and Breakfast in Gainesville for eight years, and know that we have made our cabin comfortable for our guests.

Guy George purchased this house in 1999

Why Guy George chose Angel Fire

We bought our home in Angel Fire because it has lots of snow in the winter, cool summers, and is a comfortable drive from North Texas.

What makes this house unique

Our home is tastefully decorated and conveniently located. We are 2 lots from an entrance to the Elliott Barker trail, close to the grocery store, golf course, and ski lift.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is lovely. We could tell that it's been a real home to you and your family. You've added so many special touches -- the flowers, the tee-pee, the hammock, the walking sticks, the really comfortable chairs on the deck...



We enjoyed being there very much -- the hummingbirds, the ground squirrels, the rabbit that visited in the evenings. We all said that it was the nicest place that we'd ever stayed in as a family. The beds were very comfortable, and as you'd said, the layout was perfect for our group. We played cards in the evenings and fixed breakfast in the mornings but spent a lot of time "out and about". We were sorry that the national forests were closed because of fire danger but we found plenty to do -- horseback rides on private land, the cowboy dinner at Bobcat Pass, a day in nearby towns, a visit to the pueblo in Taos, a hike on the trails across from the golf course, ... The people in Angel Fire were very friendly and the prices were quite reasonable at the grocery store. We never went beyond Angel Fire for groceries.



Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Terrific house with lots of room and good spaces for chilling out and watching wildlife

  • 4 of 5

A good vacation house in generally good condition. The kitchen is adequately equipped, the dining area has seating for 10 and the living room has comfy chairs for five. Convenient to trails in and around Angel Fire and also to grocery store, gas station, restaurants and the resort in Angel Fire on the other side of the valley. Driveway is steep, but short and no problem in summer conditions. It might be a challenge for a 2WD car in winter, however. This house is good value for money and we were very happy with our stay.

Wonderful experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed out stay in Angel Fire. The weather was wonderful and the house was very accommodating. The deer came right up to the house and grazed late afternoon and the kids were able to sled very close to the house. The house is very close to the lifts and has a beautiful view from the master bedroom upstairs. Overall it was a wonderful trip and I would recommend this house anytime.

Beautiful scenery

Enjoyed our stay. Close to ski slopes. Had a great time sledding right out the front door and making a fire in the fire pit on the deck.
