About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom (sleeps 12) With Private Valley and Pond In Back Of House

We are so excited to introduce this home we call Elk Glade to the rental market (in 2014)! We have owned and been renting the Mountain Serenity house (next door to this house) for 11 years ( and as a result, we are experienced in knowing what families want and need from their vacation home. Here’s a quick snapshot of what sets us apart from other rental houses you may encounter:

** Elk Glade is a beautiful, luxury mountain home with a log cabin, rustic feel that we completely furnished with brand-new furniture in 2014. It is unlike other rental houses that tend to have decades old furniture.

** As a family, we have been in the vacation rental business for 10 years and as a result, we are experienced in knowing what families want and need from their vacation home. We actively seek feedback from our guests and every year we invest in maintenance and improvements to keep the home looking its best.

**The house has a spectacular view of a private valley where all you see are trees and sky and wildlife, and the house is on 3 lots so it’s secluded and private, yet it’s so close to town- only 1 mile to the grocery store and 2 miles to the ski lift or golf course. Elk as well as deer can frequently be seen grazing in the valley and pond behind the home.

**This house has radiant heat, which means the heat comes up through the floors. It makes the house feel evenly warm and cozy throughout. The garage is also heated.

**It sleeps up to 12, which is ideal for 2-3 families. All 3 bedrooms have king size beds and the kids loft sleeps 6 (4 twins, 1 full size bed). The house has 3 full bathrooms.

**We provide the backdrop for creating great family memories in your mountain getaway away from the big city, such as a hot tub on the porch and decks with rocking chairs where you can have coffee or happy hour and watch the wildlife, an outdoor firepit (and we provide a stocked wood pile too) to gather around while making s’mores and telling stories, sleds in the winter and access to the Angel Fire trail system just behind the house from which you can walk all around Angel Fire.

**The house is fully stocked for you with everything you’ll need for your stay – linens and towels, hair dryers, detergent for washing machine and dishwasher, shampoo & body wash, kitchen soap, paper towels, napkins, spices and olive oil. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need – even if you’re cooking Thanksgiving dinner! All you need to buy is the food!

If this sounds like a good fit for your family, read on for more details.


Elk Glade has 3 bedrooms (with king beds) all on the main floor so it's perfect for families traveling together or with parents who don't want to climb stairs to get to their bedroom. On the top floor is the kids loft – it has 4 twin beds and 1 full size bed. There are 3 full bathrooms – one inside the master suite, another on the main floor and one on the bottom floor. Bedrooms and bathrooms are fully stocked with pillows, linens/blankets, towels, shampoo and body wash, hair dryers and hand soap.


There are several living areas for your group to gather in the Elk Glade home. The main floor has a living room with rustic furniture and a wood-burning fireplace. The living room is part of a great room area connected to the kitchen and dining room. On the top floor is an area in the loft where kids can hang out on bean bags and there are books and toys in the loft for their enjoyment. On the bottom floor is a huge gameroom where families can gather to play shuffleboard or watch TV together or play cards, games or puzzles – all provided for you. The gameroom also has a bar and an additional refrigerator to store your beverages.


Creating and eating meals together is another way to create great family memories and the Elk Glade home provides everything you need. Our kitchen features stainless appliances, a double oven with warming drawer, microwave, crockpot, refrigerator/freezer, coffee makers (regular and a Keurig), blender, griddle. All plates, glassware, baking/cookware, pots, pans, utensils are all provided. In addition, we have a cabinet full with olive oil, flour, sugar, and spices to get you started. And on the back deck is a gas grill.

For dining, there is a dining room table that seats 8 and barstools at the kitchen counter that seat 5.


Our goal is to provide plenty of options for everyone to have fun and be entertained while inside the Elk Glade home. The gameroom has a shuffleboard table, 70” TV with DVD player, a bar and puzzles and games and even a “paper airplane workshop” which is a favorite for the children. The living area has a sound system with radio and connections for your smart phone to play music that way. The house has high-speed internet and wifi. There’s also a TV in the master bedroom. The house has satellite TV with many family/sports/movies and local channels and “the NFL ticket”. The gameroom has a sectional couch that includes 4 recliners, cup-holders and consoles.


Outside, our focus is on providing the setting for fun family memories. The back of the house has both an upper and lower deck with rocking chairs and side tables – great in the summertime, having coffee in the morning or happy hour in the afternoon, taking in the mountain air and spotting wildlife in the valley which are most commonly seen around dawn and dusk. There’s a gas grill on the top deck as well for grilling in summer or winter. On the bottom deck is the hot tub, perfect for family conversations and relaxation after skiing or hiking. The back yard has a firepit with stocked wood pile for family gatherings in winter or summer. Relax on the hammock in the yard in the summer while watching the kids play. It’s so nice to watch kids explore nature in our huge yard and the woods beside our house – and in the summers here where the temperature is in the 70s, kids play outside all day long – like when we all grew up. In the winter, we provide the sleds for sled riding and the yard is perfect for snowmen and snowball fights.

The Angel Fire hiking trail system is adjacent to the house and is great for family walks (the "Elk" trail is directly behind our house and there's a trail from our back yard to get to it). You can walk to the grocery store from these trails and walk all around Angel Fire from these trails.


Entering the house from the garage you go right into our mud room/laundry room. It has ample hooks for coats and rubber mats for boots. We have a front load washer and dryer with provided detergent and dryer sheets. There is another area inside the front door with boot mats and a hall closet for coats so everyone can spread out.


When you get to the house, we have an easy sloped driveway and a garage to park your vehicle which you’ll appreciate in the winter. The garage is heated so your vehicle will be toasty warm when you get in it – another thing you’ll appreciate in the winter.


We also own the house next door and it's available for rent if you want a different configuration or you have a big group that wants to rent houses close to each other.

About Cheryl Harte

Our family is from the Dallas, TX area. We have been coming out to Angel Fire for about 11 years and we love to escape to cooler temperatures there in the summer and just love the snow and activities in the winter.

We bought our first rental property at that time ( and have spent these years developing our experience of working with travelers to provide memorable vacation experiences. We bought this rental property in 2014 and travelers have enjoyed this home as well. In 2017, through our company Mountain Serenity Rentals, we have begun to market properties for other owners. Our plan is to be very selective about the properties we'll market, looking for the ones that will best fit what travelers look for in vacation rentals.

Why Cheryl Harte chose Angel Fire

Having owned the Mountain Serenity house for almost 11 years, we love to rent our home to families vacationing in Angel Fire. Having the opportunity to buy the house next door is a dream for us, with 2 rental properties side by side being a great option for large groups.

What makes this house unique

What we love about this house is its feel of a cabin in the wildnerness, with its private, expansive views of the valley and forest behind it, to the cedar logs lining the inside of the house, to the woodburning fireplaces in the living room and the master bedroom. It will be a great escape and a source of wonderful memories for many families for years to come.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

9 of us had the most memorable spring break in Angel Fire at Elk Glade. The home is beautiful and laid out wonderfully. The kids had plenty of room to play, and have their own space, while the adults had room to visit and chill. We could also all gather together on the lower level and watch TV together at the end of a busy day. There is plenty of room to play outside, and the trails provide a lovely walking experience. The ski resort is just a short drive and takes no time at all to get to. Cheryl(the owner) was wonderful to work with. She communicated all necessary information, and made sure I had her phone number in case we ran into any problems. We had no problems at all, but I'm sure she would have handled them immediately if we had. I have rented numerous homes through Homeaway and VRBO and I can say with complete honesty that this is my favorite by far!

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the start Cheryl was amazing! Always checking with us and making sure we had everything we needed! The house was absolutely amazing...From the beautiful furniture to the heated floors I was in heaven! With 4 children we had so much room and the house design was perfect with a game room downstairs with the hot tub and the kids room upstairs so they could get a peaceful night sleep! The wildlife was my favorite, we saw elk and deer every day and it was breath taking! I will come back to this house every time!

This cozy and clean home is perfect in every way. The setting provides a most picturesque view!

  • 5 of 5

This three-story home nestled in the forest Is the ideal setting for making memories! Not only does it offer every amenity but also nearby activities abound. Hiking, biking, fishing, golfing, horseback riding, skiing, nature watching, and even dining in a lovely country club are just a few. Mornings and evenings, we especially enjoyed sitting by a cozy fire and watching the parade of wildlife outside the home's magnificent picture windows. We highly recommend Mountain Serenity, which clearly reflects the owners' thoughtful attention to detail and commitment to providing the perfect setting in a bit of heaven.
