Views, views, views and peace and quiet. If you want a place to relax, this one fits the bill! This newer home is just a short drive from the lifts, and offers peace and quiet for your ski vacation or cool summer getaway. Our home has everything you'll need for a relaxing unwired stay or as a base for the more adventurous- the kitchen and laundry room are fully equipped. Note: No wifi and no cable TV!
Fantastic views of Wheeler peak from here, and summers are delightfully cool and refreshing at 8600 feet elevation. Get away from that Texas and Oklahoma heat for a while, and enjoy golf, fishing, horseback riding and hiking in the beautiful Moreno valley of northern New Mexico.
Angel Fire has become a mountain biking destination, with excellent rides for all skill levels. Climb the tallest summit in New Mexico, Wheeler Peak, at over 13000', and a great view of it from the living room picture windows. Fishing for trout and yellow perch is terrific in Eagle Nest Lake, and anglers can ply the forest streams for coolwater 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 in a golden patchwork, and the wily bull elk bugling in the distance....a uniquely wild sound of the mountains.
In the winter, skiing is king, and snowboarders love the new terrain parks. Ample snowmaking will keep your family on the slopes even when other resorts run out of snow.
The house is centrally heated, and a gas fireplace for pleasant viewing in the living room. We now live out of New Mexico most of the year, and many of our clothes and belongings are stored in the closets of the house, so thank you in advance for excusing our crowded closets.
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. The area is so appealing that many movie stars have their homes here. Or head down to Santa Fe for even more variety, about 90 minutes away.
Note: There is excellent cell service and DVD players on the TVs. Bring your smartphone and DVDs because there is no WiFi and no cable TV. During inclement weather during winter months, 4X4 vehicles or tire chains may be helpful for part of the gravel road.
Please note: We consider reservations confirmed at the time we receive payment. Until that time, dates from your inquiries are not guaranteed.
