Ski House in Enchanted Forest

If you are headed to El Paso, Tx be sure to check out my luxury vacation rental next to the Franklin Mountains.

Enjoy the Lincoln National Forest mountains and wildlife the minute you arrive. In the Enchanted forest neighborhood it is common to see deer, wild horses, sometimes elk and all kinds of birds right from your deck. We are conveniently located just under 2 miles from the Apache ski road and shopping is a short drive away. Come relax and enjoy nature with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner


I just wanted to say thanks for giving me the opportunity to enjoy my birthday in this amazingly relaxing place. The house was outstanding: my vibe of the house is fresh and inviting. I have stayed in VRBO houses in Colorado, Nevada, NM and California and I can honestly say this has been the most comfortable experience that I've ever had.

Thank you so much,
Oct 2012

Great location, large house w/lots of room

  • 5 of 5

Our family chose Ski Apache because it had more snow than the other New Mexico ski destinations, and we booked only 3-4 days prior to our arrival. The Enchanted Forest Ski House worked very well for our group of 8. Two bedrooms downstairs + two bedrooms upstairs, plus two living areas (one each level) was great. The kids loved the pool table downstairs. Two wild horses roaming the area every morning (came right up to the house) which the kids loved as well. Large kitchen table works very well for group dinners. The house is a not the most modern house, but it is very comfortable with plenty of room to spread out.

Lovely cabin close to ski apache ski area

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cabin with lots of space for sleeping. Fun game room downstairs. Plenty of bathrooms. Nice family room upstairs for movie TV viewing away from Cameroon to ensure enjoyment of watching a movie. Nice size kitchen complete with all necessary dishes and cookware for any meal you are going to prepare. Close proximity to ski area which comes in handy to get your party up on the mountain on time. I'll definitely stay here again!!

Owner's Response: Ski PT, Thank you for your review and most of all gracious and kind comments. Close proximity to Ski Apache is the reason we bought the house: Just 2 miles from the ski road. Glad you enjoyed the Netflix movies and pool table with your family. Please come again. You can come in the summer and enjoy a beautiful hike in the Lincoln National Forest which starts across the highway. Happy to have you anytime. Best always, Cheryl

My husband and I wanted to get away for a few days for relaxation and this was perfection. The listing description was very accurate and easy to find. The owner was very helpful with my questions and concerns. The property was clean and well maintained and very refreshing. We had a very good time and I will recommend this property to my friends and family. I will certainly return in the near future.

Thank you so much for such an awesome place to stay, it is so nice to have a home away from home.

We are contractors & where ever we go & work, we rent homes. It is so much better than motels: we have our privacy & can cook home cooked meals. This home is beautiful & very comfortable.
