About Cheryl Harte

Our family is from the Dallas, TX area. The Mountain Serenity house is our family vacation home that we now share as a rental home.

Cheryl Harte purchased this house in 2006

Why Cheryl Harte chose Angel Fire

We love the outdoors, so we enjoy Angel Fire in all seasons: in winter of course for the skiing, in spring we love to see the baby elk and deer, summers we enjoy hiking/golfing/rafting/fishing, and the fall colors are absolutely beautiful.

Fantastic location, Amazing Home, and Wonderful Owners

  • 5 out of 5
My daughter and I joined friends for a 3-day weekend stay at Mountain Serenity. This was our third trip to Angel Fire and first stay in this home. Our family has rented other homes, but Mountain Serenity tops our experiences!

Of particular note, other homes we've rented felt a bit stifling due to "rules", but Mountain Serenity's subtlety in framing the expectations makes it feel so comfortable and relaxing. The home feels like home; it is in impeccable condition and it's clear to me the owners take great pride in making the stay comfortable.

The kitchen is, by far, the best-stocked you will find at a property. This makes cooking a snap and is more enjoyable.

The location is fantastic- really great to make a quick run to the store when needed, plus it's just a short zip across the street to the ski area.

The kids had a BLAST hanging out with each other in the basement. The set-up there is incredibly spacious and has so much to offer them by way of activity after a day out on the mountain.

The outdoor fire pit was also one of the highlights of the trip.

The view from the livingroom/kitchen is fantastic. Peaceful and beautiful. Though we were there with snow on the ground, I imagine it to be even better for hiking and exploring in the summer.

I have raved to friends and family about how awesome this property is... couldn't let it pass without writing this review. Thanks for making our getaway such an overwhelming success with this beautiful home to come back to each night!

Nice house, but dont forget anything

  • 4 out of 5
This house was great for my extended family and family. We had singles, married couples and 5 kids, 5 and under. We had plenty of room. The kitchen was nice and spacious for us all and the kids had a great time sledding on the sleds in the garage. Since there are 2 sets of stairs and we had two 10-16months old, a baby gate for each set of stairs would have been a great addition to help keep them on the main floor. The playroom downstairs- games, animals and such kept the 3 older ones entertained a lot.
The biggest problem my little family had, was forgetting our overnight bag on the bed upstairs in an effort to clean, load, and get everyone out of the house. As soon as we realized it was missing we called the property manager and the housekeepers had brought it to her already. She said she would mail it to us and she did. We paid for the postage costs. We were grateful to get our bag back with several items our 3 little ones needed, but the saddest part to discover was someone had stolen our money. This person had to dig in the bag to find the envelope with the $640 cash in it. It was disappointing to realize how depraved man can be, and to think someone would willingly go through another person's belongings. We know it was in our bag as my husband had put it in, behind a book, in the bag that morning. We called the property manager the day the mailman dropped off the package and informed her of the loss. She said we should have had her insure it. I debated when asking her to send it, to even mention the money. Now I wish I had. My dad rented the house and talked with the owner. They offered to give us a $600 credit. The problem is we are much closer to Colorado, and we will probably not have another reason to go back to the Angel Fire area. It was a one time family event. It would have been nice to have been given a refund for that amount. Not sure the difference in a refund or credit for them, unless they were hoping we would not take them up on it; which would be a sad way to do business. We did file a police report and were pleasantly surprised that the officer, over our case, went and interviewed the ones in contact with our bag. It is obvious one of them took it, but with it being cash, there is no way to trace it and no way to know which person. The Angel Fire PD is very thorough and took us seriously, unlike the others we had talked to about the issue. So, learn from us having our Christmas money stolen and DONT leave anything behind!

Owner's Response: I’ve had over 300 families as guests in our home in the 7 years that I have owned the house and yes, things are left behind from time to time. Everything that has been left at the house is returned to the guests if requested. Not once has a situation like this happened previously.

I have a high degree of trust in my property manager whom I’ve done business with for several years. One of the reasons I hired her and continue to work with her is because she has one main housekeeper who she has worked with for many years and whom she trusts. That being said, I know them well and they are ethical people.
In this type of situation, it’s difficult to prove what the truth is. My property manager and housekeeper have both offered to take lie detector tests as long as the family does as well. To date, they have not been taken up on their offer. As an owner, I was faced with a situation where there is no evidence to reach a conclusion. So I tried to compensate the family in some way and I offered to credit them $600 on a future visit.

My advice to travelers to avoid situations like this is to avoid carrying large sums of cash (ATMs are easily accessible and most stores/restaurants accept credit cards) and to buy travel insurance.

Excellent Rental Property. Perfect for families.

  • 5 out of 5
This property is the the best maintained property I have ever rented. The property was amazingly clean and had all amenities imaginable. The kitchen is extremely large and has everything you would need to cook during your stay. The kids have an amazing "cove" to play and sleep it. It is stocked with puzzles, games and stuffed animals. My children instantly felt at home. The outdoor space is simply ideal. I would highly recommend this property and look forward to returning next year.

Wonderful Mountain Retreat!!

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first time to the New Mexico Mountains and there were 3 families with small boys ranging from 4 to 7. We drove up from the DFW area where we left it at 100+ and the weather in Angel Fire never crept above 80. IT WAS AMAZING! We opened all of the windows in the morning and the bedroom windows at night to let the cool breeze (50 degrees at night) come through. We hiked every morning and at first we used the walking sticks that the owners had at the house, but we soon found our own, and had fun carving them by the camp fire every evening. The fire pit was used DAILY, and we cooked hotdogs and smores every day it seems. The kitchen comes fully stocked so you only need to bring groceries, and there is a Lowes grocery store only minutes away that has everything you need so that made it easy. We only ate out once at Angel Fired Pizza one night, so we mainly just enjoyed relaxing at the house. The separate dining room was perfect for the adults to enjoy their meal and the kids could sit on the bar stools or smaller kitchen table so they could have their fun too. We saw deer and elk, which was AMAZING! The house also has a small familiy of chipmonks that like to run around outside which was a lot of fun for the kids (and adults) as I hadn't really seen one up close before. We would highly reccomend it - plenty of room for 3-4 families. We will be back!

A beautiful mountain rental!

  • 5 out of 5
Mountain Serenity was a perfect rental for our group. We rented the house for spring break. We had 3 families with 6 adults and 6 kids ranging from 8 months to 7 yrs old. The house is located on a beautiful piece of property.

The bedrooms were perfect and each couple had their own bedroom. The kids loved having the downstairs to themselves. Bunk beds were great for the 3 kids and the other 2 had the bedroom. The games and the air hockey table were great for the kids too.

The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook. We loved having the dining room table and the kitchen table. We could all sit down to eat and had plenty of space. We didn't need to buy anything which was so nice.

The outside was great. There was a little igloo out back that the kids played in. When we got there it was snowing and so the kids loved playing in the snow and sledding outside. On the last day we got lucky enough to use the fire pit and made smores. That was a highlight for the kids.

I would recommend this house to anyone. Cheryl was amazing to work with. Thank you for a great house.
