Comfortable Home 3 Blocks From The Slopes. Available For Cool Summers.

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with Mountain Views, flat driveway, (sleeps 6 - 8).

Welcome to our listing for Badar Mountain Cabin! We absolutely LOVE Angel Fire, NM, so we built our vacation home here 17+ years ago.

Our comfortable home is very close to the Ski lifts, including the high speed quad, the 'Chili Express'. In fact, it is 3 blocks to the lift. There is a shuttle-stop approximately 90-ft. from our drive-way, and the Angel Fire Resort shuttle will pick up passengers, during ski season, to take you to and from the mountain.

We have a great view of Wheeler peak from our living room and deck, and summers are delightfully cool and refreshing at 8600 feet elevation. Get away from that heat for a while, and enjoy golf, fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking in the beautiful Moreno Valley of northern New Mexico.

Our home has no A/C, however, the summer is cool with a window open. Climb the tallest summit in New Mexico, Wheeler Peak, at over 13000'. Fish for trout and yellow perch at Eagle Nest Lake, and anglers can ply the forest streams for cool-water trout. Hunters will find abundant elk, some deer and blue grouse nearby on National Forest land. The fall is particularly breathtaking, with the aspens coloring the mountains, or listen for the bull elk bugling in the distance....(sounds like a kid in need of clarinet lessons :).

In the winter, this family oriented ski mountain has something for all ski levels, and snowboarders love the new terrain parks. Ample snow making will keep your family on the slopes even when other resorts run out of snow. If not wanting to brave the elements, then hang around the house in front of our wood-burning fireplace and enjoy a game on PlayStation, or watch a few cartoons or movies (DVD or VCR). We also have a game/puzzle cabinet for all ages to enjoy. The home has propane heat. However, firewood is stacked underneath the deck if you decide to use the fireplace.

Shoppers and historians will enjoy Taos, a mere 35 minutes or so away, with many artisans shops, restaurants, and a lengthy history going back to the Spanish explorers hundreds of years ago. A 45 minute drive north will lead you to Red River, a ski-town with a cowboy flair. Or head south down to Santa Fe for even more variety, about 90 minutes away.

*NOTE: Our home has free Wi-Fi high speed internet, and local phone usage (Angel Fire, Eagle Nest and Taos); however, no long distance service. So, if you need to talk long distance bring your cell phone.

*Please note: We consider reservations confirmed at the time we receive payment. Until that time, dates from your inquiries are not guaranteed.

About Susan Badar

John and Susan Badar live in Leander, TX and have been coming to Angel Fire, NM for over 20 years. Susan is retired from IBM and John still works for IBM, Austin, TX.

Susan Badar purchased this house in 1998

Why Susan Badar chose New Mexico

We love taking vacations in Angel Fire, be it winter or summer, the area holds such beauty. We enjoy skiing, hiking and biking, so we wanted to invest in a mountain property close to a ski resort. Angel Fire is such a beautiful area and it's a drivable distance from our home in Leander.

What makes this house unique

The home is relaxing with beautiful views of Wheeler Peak. In nice weather, we love to sit outside on the deck with some refreshments; especially in the evening to watch the breathtaking sunsets. In the winter it's fun to have a view of the ski runs from the master bedroom deck. If it's cold outside, we can sit by the cozy fire with a good book. It's a short drive to Taos, Eagle Nest or Red River which provide more choices for dining, entertainment and shopping.

Excellent well appointed cabin close to the base of the mountain.

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the week before Christmas 2016 in the Badar cabin. The cabin was clean and well apointed with all of the amenities one could wish for. It was an easy walk or shuttle ride to the Chile Express lift. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Great house and location!

The house has everything you need to have a comfortable stay. All the cooking pans and utensils needed to prepare your meals after a fun day on the slopes and the location was perfect too!

Owner's Response: So glad you all had a great time. It looks like you all lucked out and got some new snow, tho not much, but any snow is good :-) ... We hope you consider staying again sometime. It's really fun in the summer too, if you mountain bike, horseback ride or hike. Have a wonderful 2017!

Excellent as always.

  • 5 of 5

This was actually my 3rd stay, so there is obviously a reason I keep returning. I stay with a couple friends and ride the bike park during the summer.

The rate for what you get is the best in the village. The house is well stocked with everything you need to enjoy your stay. Pantry is full of spices, cooking spray, coffee filters and just about everything I have ever needed. Cabinets are full of a great assortment of pots, pans, cooking utensils and enough utensils to feed a small army.

As a bonus, there is a good selection of games, washer/dryer and two full bathrooms. Everything is as advertised.

Wonderful home close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit at this cute home. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals and it was so close to the restaurants we walked everywhere. After a day of hiking and rafting we enjoyed the jacuzzi tub. Highly recommend this place for summer or winter!

Owner's Response: So glad you all enjoyed your stay in our home, and that you were able to get a away from the Austin heat for a bit; lucky you, now it's all rain! We hope you can come back to ski sometime. It's quite convenient that the Angel Fire shuttle will drive up to our driveway if people are out there waiting with skis in hand. Take care.
