About the property

Cabin, Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Bunk Room (Sleeps 10-12)

Completed vacation home/cabin in February of 2012. Was on exhibit in the 2012 Angel Fire Parade of Homes - We are excited to share our home with other families who love the great outdoors. Our home is situated on the Ski mountain at 9800ft elevation. You can drive 1/2 mile down our road, park, and ski right off, and right back down to your auto(1 minute from our home). You can avoid the hassle of ever driving or hiking up to lifts through the crowds. (Provided there is good snow)

Our home is fully equipped with all new appliances included a washer and dryer and the kitchen includes all new stainless steel quality appliances. All cooking utensils provided needed. If you drink coffee, bring your

cups and enjoy our machine (regular 'old school' pot is available too). You will likely see deer, elk, wild turkey, occasional bear and a hiker or two, during your stay. Our bedrooms are very nicely equipped without clutter. The master bathroom is super nice with giant soaking tub. See photos.

When considering renting our home for several families, compare our cost to the the lodge. Our home has three floors, situated to accommodate 3 families of 4 with kids on bunk beds and futons. We are situated at just under 10,000 feet elevation - makes for a mountain experience.

Our home is minutes away from golfing, disk golfing, Nordic skiing, biking, fishing, fine dining- you name it. We are 40 minutes from Taos, NM, 20 minutes from Red River, 2 hours from Sante Fe, NM and 3 hours from Albuquerque, NM.

About Greg Vincent

My wife and I dreamed of a home in the mountains for many years. We found this home partially built in 2010 and began making it our own. We have picked out every detail of this house and our contractor did amazing carpentry and construction to make our dream come true. We are educators and live in Texas but spend much of our free time in the mountains. We continually update the home with new furniture and decorations as the home moves along its journey.

Greg Vincent purchased this lodge in 2010

Why Greg Vincent chose New Mexico

Angel Fire NM is one of friendliest communities in the mountains we have experienced. We can travel there from our home in Amarillo in about 4 ours. We have made friends easily there and the resort staff are amazing. Our home is situated nicely high up on the ski mountain and we can experience both privacy and easy access to the ski slopes and 10 minutes to village below.

What makes this lodge unique

We have five boys. We have enough room and enough things for them to do to keep them busy while having good clean fun.

Excellent Home for Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The home was very nice, as presented in the photographs and listing comments. The three level floor plan provided our family ample space to spread out. A herd of elk grazed in the back yard one evening and we saw numerous deer, turkey, and a bear on the drives up to the house. Ping Pong table in garage and hot tub on the deck were nice bonuses! The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. I failed to read an email the owner sent on the day of our check in with cleaning instructions, which were different (and less work) than the instructions in the cabin, but that was the only hiccup. I would stay here again.

Accommodations were lovely-well equipped home with many extras, not to mention the beautiful mountain views and dense forrestation. Home is well maintained, owner was very pleasant and helpful. Enjoyed our time at Destiny Awaits and would highly recommend to anyone who likes looking at treetops!! It was a relaxing setting and quite cozy.

Beautiful cabin high up on the mountain with friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 teen boys for 5 days over Christmas break. It was perfect for our family. The boys each got a room and bathroom of their own. One got the bottom floor, we got the master on the 2nd floor, and my other son got the 3rd floor. The cabin is beautiful and had everything we needed. We had a group of 4 mule deer that visited during our stay. There wasn't much snow at the bottom of the mountain and around town, but luckily we were high enough on the mountain that we had 1-2 feet of snow around the cabin. We were unable to use the ski access up the road...if we had stayed a few more days we would have gotten a ton of snow and probably been able to use it. It is about a 10 minute drive from the bottom up to the cabin. Nice and quiet, secluded. You will not be disappointed. We would definitely rent this cabin again, if we go back to the area in the future. Friendly owners. Greg was available anytime we needed anything by phone/email. Loved this place. :)

Angel Fire Ski Resort

Our cabin/home is located approximately 9800 feet elevation. We are just down the road from a private ski in ski out drop off point near the top of the ski mountain. You can drive 1/2 mile down the road and ski in and ski out without ever messing with the crowd. SNOW MUST BE GOOD FOR THIS LUXURY!!! (We like to come back to the cabin for lunch) Our nearest neighbor is 1/4 mile away, serious solitude, 3 decks wrap 3/4 of the house with a covered porch. If the snow is deep, we have our own sledding hill. Roads to the home are maintained by the resort, and we have the driveway plowed.
