About Jodi

Purchased the property in 2009 from the Mountain Manager. This is our 2nd home and we love it. Cool, crisp air, stars at night, wildlife everywhere, great neighbors! We take great pride in our property and hope that you will enjoy your stay at Cougar Den. The name comes from the Canyon Cougar's and their athletic facility. I am a former teacher/coach and am currently an active Realtor with Keller Williams Realty.

Jodi purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Jodi chose New Mexico

Perfect! It's at the end of a Cul-de-Sac, on an elk Super highway, Greenbelt, friendly neighbors, and close to town, but tucked away. Quiet and lots of stars at night! No outdoor burning or fires!

What makes this chalet unique

Cool, quiet, near golf course and pool, loaded kitchen, open floor plan so nobody is left out, but divided into 3 floors to give everyone space. No fires!

Quiet and Comfy

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation rental for us with 2 adult children. Very quiet and peaceful location. You can walk to the lake and there is a great hiking trail 1 mile away. The house was very clean. Plenty of linens were provided and the kitchen had everything you need to cook. The upstairs master was a little warm (no AC), but the breeze with the windows open on the main floor was very nice. The living room really seats 3, but we squeezed. We loved the deck and fire pit. We lost the key on a horseback ride and Jodi was quick to help us out. Thanks for a great stay, we will recommend it to friends.

Fabulous house

  • 4 of 5

Had 4 couples and 4 kids, room set up perfect! Hot water in all showers was never a problem even with washer and diahwasher going. We made 3 dinners and were lacking for nothing in terms of pots/pans and utensils. After some instructions all heaters worked perfect on all floors! Would strongly recommend and we will be back ourselves!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

The home was perfect for 7 during a spring break ski vacation. The beds were comfy and the middle floor stayed comfortable the entire time. The wooden floors are beautiful! We had trouble with the heat since the temp had gotten so low several nights we were there. We had a baby with us and when we closed the door, the room would get very cold. There is not heat in each room, so the doors need to be left open during the day & night. The owner was able to find a room heater since the baby had the flu and we appreciate that she worked so fast to find one. One of the heaters down in the lowest floor had the pilot light go out and she was able to get someone to come the next day and relight it to get that heater going. The middle floor's hot water heater worked wonderful- plenty of hot water but the 3rd floor water heater did not work properly. So we all ended up taking turns on the middle floor. The cleaning crew does a poor job. There were cobwebs on all floors and the bottom floor had leaves, dirt and wrappers under my bed. The toilets were not cleaned from the previous renters. The kitchen is full of pots, pans, utensils and dishes. Very nice!! There are 4 seats for the bar and a larger table with 4 chairs. The house is spacious and with some cleaning & the upper hot water heater repair the house would be amazing. The owner was very nice and answered all of my questions- I had several. I would post more pictures of each room because we were really unsure as to what the home had inside. Yes, I would recommed to a friend/family member and hopefully we will get to stay there again. I know it is very hard to find good help especially to clean but I would look for a new group to do the cleaning- Thanks for a wonderful time!!

Nice Cabin, Close to Angel Fire

  • 5 of 5

My Family rented this Cabin on very short notice when we decided to extend our skiing trip by a few days and ski Angel Fire. This cabin is extremely well located, about 5 minutes form Angel Fire. It's a beautiful cabin. We arrived a little early, and met their kind neighbor who was opening up the house for us. he was very nice, and explained that the electricity had not been turned on yet, so we emailed the owner. The owner is super responsive, and the Electric was back on well before we returned from skiing. The house took a little while to heat up, and the wall thermostats don't work (we didn't realize this at first) but the gas fireplace and wall heater really got things warmed quickly once we figured it out. The Kids loved romping around in the snow right off the deck, and loved the bunk beds. It was truly the best stocked kitchen we have ever stayed at, lots of condiments, beautiful ceramic dishes and cups, really everything you could need!

The one issue we had was getting hot water for showers, there is not hot water on the upper floor at all, and it seemed like the tankless heater got turned off when the electric went out. Once we reset it, we were able to get enough hot water on the kitchen level for showers, but never at the top floor.

The cable was great, and they had a copy of the book "The Giver" which I had always wanted to read so I read that and enjoyed it while we stayed there. There was no wi-fi- which normally would not be an issue for us but since our cell phones were also roaming, we were not able to make calls while at the house. Overall it was a very nice large cabin, with super comfortable beds and a very responsive and attentive owner. We would stay there for sure again.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay! We wear close to several lakes and rivers for fishing and hiking. It was great to watch elk grazing in the meadow from the balcony. We defiantly got more for our family of six staying there than paying for two separate rooms at a hotel that would of been more expensive. The home was clean and very comfortable. Loved it!

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The house was super clean and had everything to get us started. We went wild with the HUGE backyard, woods next door, built a fort, and got to swing on a rope swing. We saw a squirrel, chipmunk, coyote, elk, Mule deer, and a beaver down the street. The kitchen has everything. The bathroom has everything that we needed. We were able to collect a bag of pine cones and take them home. We even helped out by watering plants by the pathway. kids hauled broken limbs and stacked them, then we got a super nice note to the children from the owner. Jodi is an amazing property owner who gave us ideas on things to do, places to eat, and to avoid. It has been a long time since our family has gotten to be together and everyone enjoyed each moment so much. The fun never stopped and we ALL found things to do. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
