Overview

Angel Fire 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.

Location

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.

Wonderful Week's Vacation in Angel Fire

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the Selah House. The weather was perfect and the home was just what we expected.

The house was very clean and well equipped. We spent almost all of our time on the large deck with the beautiful view of the trees and forest behind. Every evening we saw deer walking past the cabin and even a fawn nursing from its mother. There were also numerous deer and wild geese at the lake down the road.

The layout of the house was perfect for a lot of guests. We would like to return with all of our family. Revisiting Angel Fire was great! The mountains were still as beautiful as we remembered.

Fall Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our chocolate lab rented Selah house for an extended weekend getaway in the mountains. The property was beautiful and sits in the midst of the forest with lots of wildlife. We videoed and photographed a herd of elk cows and calf's with a bull within 30 yards of the house from the balcony, mule deer every morning, and even a flock of turkey's in the driveway one morning. The cabin itself has everything you need to make for a comfortable stay. The bathrooms have been renovated as well as the kitchen and the great room is nice and cozy with a large wood burning fireplace to enjoy in the evenings. There are lots of activities within a short distance of the property. We took advantage of the trees changing color and went horseback riding in Carson National Forest with Roadrunner Stables in Angel Fire. It was well worth the money and the mountain views were spectacular. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a short drive from the property and well worth visiting. We spent one day driving the enchanted circle as well. We will definitely be staying at Selah house again next fall.

Spacious, comfy and clean in a beautiful forest setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Selah House with our dogs. The property is surrounded by beautiful pine and aspen trees. We saw deer during our visit as well as lots of chipmunks, squirrels and birds. Nuthatch birdies and hummingbirds were at the deck feeders every morning to keep us company while we had our coffee. We had a campfire every evening in the "backyard". We heard owls in the evening and the stars were so bright.

The accommodations were nice- 3 brand new bathrooms, nice slate floors in kitchen and new hardwoods in living space, great fireplace, super large screen tv and vaulted ceilings. The kitchen was stocked with all the plates, glasses, pots, pans, silverware and everything you would need. Oven and stove worked great, fridge was super clean and was nice to have a dishwasher as well as a washer and dryer. The tap water tasted just fine. The beds were comfy. The price was right and our dogs were allowed which was what was most important to us.

It was just a short 5 minute drive into town to stop by the grocery store, grab a bite to eat or get a beer. The ski hill and its restaurants/shops were also less than 10 minutes away. This property is not totally isolated, there are other houses in the area, but we still felt like we had our privacy.

Best part of our stay was the location, the setting was perfect. It was just a short walk to the lake and hiking trails. I could spend every morning on that deck looking out into the forest!
