Angel Fire House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 1 tiny bedroom, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 12.

'Lake Haven' is located on Monte Verde Lake with a priceless view of Wheeler Peak and the lake. A wonderful place in summer or winter, for a group or just a couple wanting to feel like they’re retired and enjoying the 'golden years' (or maybe you are!). Relaxing & convenient.

The spacious living room has a seating area around the fire place and another around the TV. A reading nook next to the fireplace is a favorite place to curl up. We have plenty of games, puzzles & over a 100 movies for you to enjoy. A large, fully stocked kitchen has a table for 4 and room for everyone to create wonderful memories (dancing, bowling, skits, story telling...and some cooking). Our dining room seats 10.

Four of the 5 bedrooms have lake and mountain views. On the main floor is the master bedroom and across the hall is a very small room with a bunkbed, perfect for children wanting to be close to their parents or a teen wanting a cozy room.

The large deck overlooks the lake where you can relax, sip coffee or have dinner while watching the elk and deer roam by. The heated garage has a ping pong table to host some friendly competition or burn off what energy the kids have left after skiing.

Four wheel drive is NOT needed, since we have a flat driveway & roads to the house. Quick, easy access to everything in Angel Fire, about a 5 minute drive to anything

Monte Verde Lake: Lake Haven is on a private lake that doesn't require a state fishing license, but does charge a daily per person fee to fish. Please contact Monte Verde Lake for current fees and rules.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Lake Haven over Memorial Day weekend. There was a total of 9 of us, and the house had plenty of room for us to move around. The lake is within walking distance from the house (fishing was great by the way) and the kids had a lot of fun roasting marshmallows over the firepit. This was our second trip to Lake Haven and I'm sure we'll be back again next year!

Spacious yet Cozy, Close to Slopes & A+ Homeowner

  • 5 of 5

This cabin worked absolutely wonderfully for our family of 11 to spend Christmas vacation. The kitchen, dining room and living areas were extremely spacious. Plenty of room to gather together in these areas for preparing meals, sitting down together for meals (dining room seats 11 comfortably), opening gifts and enjoying family games and chats. Firewood was provided which was a huge plus for our firebug family. 4 of the bedrooms were quite large. We used the small 5th bedroom for one middle school age child on the top bunk... the headspace on the bottom bunk is quite limited but could be good for a small child. Before our arrival, I was worried about having only 2 bathrooms for our group, but it worked out just fine. And lots of towels were provided. The heated garage was a bonus... the kids spent down time playing ping pong and hanging out. And it provided so much space not only for our skis and gear but also as a place to stash a lot of stuff that we travelled with. The cabin is only a few minutes away from the slopes and has a flat driveway so no issues with getting in and out. We would definitely recommend this cabin and would love to have the opportunity to stay here again someday. Cozy, clean, convenient and comfortable! The homeowner, Michele, was soooo great to work with. I felt like I was dealing with a friend. You could tell she just wants the guests to enjoy the place as much as she does. We certainly did!!

The Lake Haven house provided everything necessary for a active and quiet stay. Excellent views of the lake and the mountains and options for staying in to relax. House was clean, well stocked for various types of entertainment. Had a great time.

Best Christmas EVER!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the perfect location for all of our family to share a one of a kind Christmas. The kids played on the sledding hill all day while the adults could gather in the large family room and play games or chat. We had a blast playing Trivial Pursuit (girls against guys... we are left at a 1-1 tie, until next time!)

The kitchen was big enough for the whole family to hang out and cook together in. There were plenty of bedrooms and areas for all 14 of us to gather and feel comfortable. We loved watching the heard of deer come though the yard every day around 4pm. We traveled from, Utah, Wisconsin, New York, and Albuquerque to have a quiet family Christmas together. I know this will be the highlight for many years to come.

The owners are great to work with, making sure we had all our needs met and questions answered! LOVED IT!!

Can't wait for next time!
