New Mexico House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Near Monte Verde Lake

Selah House

Welcome to “Selah House,” a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom multi-level mountain home tucked away in the trees close to Monte Verde lake and just minutes from Angel Fire Ski Area. This home sleeping 8-12 is ideal for groups of skiers and snowboarders, families looking for a private place with access to a variety of activities, or anyone seeking a peaceful retreat in the trees.


Although this house sits snugly in a forest of evergreens and aspens, it is easy to access from the main highway for any vehicle (no 4-wheel drive required). It is less than a ¼ mile from Monte Verde Lake, 2.5 miles from Angel Fire Country Club and Golf Course, and 3.5 miles from the ski area with a variety of shopping and restaurants.

The Great Room

Enter through the front door into a tiled entryway, perfect for storing skis and snowboards, before ascending into the beautiful great room. This large living area boasts a vaulted, wood-beamed ceiling, large windows with views of the forest, a stone fireplace enclosing a wood-burning stove, and plenty of seating. It is connected to a full kitchen and dining area that seats up to 14 comfortably and provides access to a spacious deck suitable for viewing stars or wildlife. Alternatively, stay inside and view the game on the 60-inch flat-screen TV.

The Bedrooms

Upstairs, the master bedroom features vaulted, wood-beamed ceilings, large windows looking into the trees, a queen size bed, and a recently renovated bathroom with a walk-in shower. The three downstairs bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, share a recently renovated bathroom. The larger of the rooms also has a sturdy set of wooden bunk beds. Fold-out couches in the great room provide two additional queen-sized mattresses. There is a new full bath with tub on the mid-level for our renter's convenience.

Kid and pet friendly

The downstairs bathroom features a “potty-training” toilet seat, a bathtub with a removable shower-head, and a stepping stool for little legs. Upstairs in the great room, use the provided baby gates to create a safe play area for toddlers, or head into the yard where you’ll find ample play space among the trees and a small personal sledding hill at the back of the property (sleds provided).

About Mark Mattay

Hi, we're Mark and Lynn from the Dallas TX area. We've been visiting Angel Fire for 19 years. All four of our kids learned to ski there. And all of those years we've been renting.

About 10 years ago we started praying and saving for a house in Angel Fire NM to share with our family, friends, missionaries, and others in ministry. Our dream became reality July 2013. Selah House is a place to pause and rest, to regroup, and we hope, to laugh, and to play - maybe even launch an adventure. Stay at Selah House and leave a review. Include a few smiles :) We hope you'll do a lot of smiling while you're there.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this property! The house is perfect for a large family with kids! The communication with property owner was also great! So much to do in the area and cabin is very comfortable! You can tell this family put a lot of love into their 2nd home! Thanks for an amazing week in Angelfire!

Very peaceful!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay there and didn't want to leave. It was close enough to stores and activities so you didn't have to drive forever to do anything but far enough to the quite peaceful sounds of the forest. The cabin was very nice and clean, bath and kitchen updated and had everything we needed. We really spent alot of time on the balcony and used the fire pit nightly. We definitely felt it was very affordable for what we got and would love to go back again. Thanks for sharing your beautiful cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of nine on vacation together and the house was very accommodating. The great location allowed us to do mountain biking, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, and 4-wheeling without going very far at all. We loved all the birds at the feeders and the deer and elk that walked through the yard. Every evening we managed to get s'mores made around the firepit. That was a bonus. Thank you so much for sharing with others!

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Selah House was beautiful! There were mule deer bedding down in the backyard, baby geese by the lake, and a plethora of birds at the feeders. It was exactly what we needed. And there are enough rooms and beds to fit a small army! Loved it. Will be back again!

We LOVE Selah!

  • 5 of 5

Selah house was the perfect topper to an amazing ski weekend in Angel Fire. It had more than enough room and beds to comfortably fit myself and my 7 friends, and it's tucked away in the prettiest little cove with a wooded view. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place for our little weekend getaway!!

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

There with a group of 11, perfect size. House comes with anything you would need if at home. House felt very cold when we arrived, but warmed up in no time. Lake is very close and view stunning. Deer at doorsteps most days.. Will definitely stay here on future trips..

Owner's Response: Dear Ruthie, We’re glad you enjoyed your stay at Selah House! We spend as much time there with our young adult children as we can and try to keep it stocked with the things we frequently need. The proximity to the lake is perfect and the lake is especially beautiful early in the morning! You are right, so many deer! We look forward to hosting you and your family again soon. Lynn M.
