Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Angel Fire - Mountain Serenity

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11-13)

Located in Angel Fire, New Mexico, 'Mountain Serenity' is a beautiful luxury mountain home ideal to rent for family vacations. We have owned and rented this house for almost 10 years and as a result, we are experienced in knowing what families want and need from their vacation home. So we are dedicated to providing the best experience for our guests through maintaining a house that has up-to-date furniture, is clean and well-maintained, and has everything you’ll need for your stay, such as linens and towels, detergent for washing machine and dishwasher, shampoo & body wash, spices and olive oil. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need – even if you’re cooking Thanksgiving dinner! All you need to buy is the food! We even provide sleds in the winter.

The house is secluded and private yet only 1 mile from the grocery store and 2 miles from the ski lift. The house sleeps up to 13 people with 4 bedrooms (1 King, 3 Queens) and a kids room (bunk bed and elevated twin) and sleeper sofa. It has 2 full bathrooms and a half-bath. Perfect for families, adults can entertain themselves on the main floor while the children have fun on the bottom gameroom floor that has a TV, DVD player, air hockey table, kids room and large amount of games and toys for the kiddos.

One of the best features of the house is the view from the back deck. There is an expansive view of a greenbelt where all you see are trees and sky and one of the things we enjoy most is that we often see wildlife in the valley around dawn and dusk times. Another of my personal favorite times is when you are the in house during a snowstorm – watching snow fall across the valley onto the trees is just magical. Or when you are sitting on the front porch on the porch swing watching the rain fall in the front of the house, that’s memorable too.

It has satellite TV with many family/sports/movies/local channels on the TV in the master bedroom and the TV in the gameroom. Both TVs have DVD players. The stereo has radio and a connector for a smart phone. The house has high speed Internet and wireless DSL. Gameroom has an air hockey table.

There are many options for eating meals at the house to suit your mood or to separate adults/kids. The house features a huge, family-size dining room with doors and it seats 8, a kitchen table that seats 4 and 2 barstools.

We have a nice sized mud room to hang coats and put boots/shoes and we have front-load washer and dryer.

There’s a garage to keep your vehicle inside, away from the elements, which you’ll appreciate in the winter.

The Angel Fire hiking trail system is adjacent to the house which are great for family walks (the "Elk" trail is directly behind our house and there's a trail from our back yard to get to it). Our yard is a nice size to play around - in the summer, it's fun for the kids to explore nature – we have an empty lot on each side of the house so the kids can explore in the woods and in our yard, there’s a fort, a fire pit and a homemade see-saw. In the winter, our driveway is perfect for sledding and the yard perfect for snowmen and snowball fights.

We also own the house next door and it's available for rent if you want a different configuration or you have a big group that wants to rent houses close to each other. You can find more information about our other property called Elk Glade at homeaway #3834316

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 New Mexico

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We truly enjoyed our vacation in Angel Fire in this beautifully appointed vacation property. It had everything we needed and provided all the comforts of home that you would enjoy during a holiday. There is even a huge jacuzzi tub in the master's bedroom where you can just relax! The huge spaces in the living room and the dining room were perfect for our family to hang out between activities for our family reunion held three houses away. The convenience of the vacation rental property next door being occupied by family members also even made it double the fun to share and enjoy the unique features these houses offered (for example, the hot tub/spa next door!). This particular place really lives up to the word "Serendipity" especially when sitting on the rocking chairs on the deck looking out on the awesome landscape of the green trees and the pathway for walkers and bikers. We even had a close-up photo op with a visiting elk! The only drawback is the steep driveway to the house, but we didn't have any problem driving our van all the way to the garage. Thank you for keeping the place so beautifully furnished, clean, comfortable and enjoyable for our vacation in Angel Fire!

Great, Peaceful Time

  • 5 of 5

Place was super clean, the kids loved the basement as their own "layer". Angelfire was so beautiful. Realized why they named the home Mountain Serenity as soon as we arrived. Great hiking trails right from the property, plenty to do in the mountains.

Great location and a well stocked kitchen

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Mountain Serenity. The kitchen was well stocked with staples and more (important for us since we cooked our entire week there). The location was nice and close to the slopes. Be prepared for snow on the road and a steep driveway, however. Bring your chains. The kids room was great (we have a 4 and 3 year old) and they had a blast on the bunkbed, reading new books. and playing new games. We loved the firepit outside and had a fire going 4 nights in a row. Only thing that was negative was the fact that there are only two full bathrooms. We were 6 adults and 2 kids so we made it work, but be prepared to fight for the shower! Recommend this property for a great family getaway.

Beautiful spacious home, great for large families

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with everything you need for a large family. The home met all our needs. We sat 12 around the dining room table for supper and had plenty of sleeping options. No problems with hot water when showering. The view out back is amazing... saw wildlife most days. A few minor issues were dealt with satisfactorily by the owner. We enjoyed our stay and would rent this house again. One word of caution- do not back all the way down the driveway to the garage during the winter unless you have four wheel drive or tire chains.

Wonderful house for large groups!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was truly a fabulous house for a large group. We had 4 adults and 7 kids in the house and we had room for more! The floor plan was greAt for kids because our kids played with cousins on the lower level and had air hockey and games galore! The only hard thing was the driveway in winter. We got stuck in the snow once in driveway so opted to park in the street for the rest of the visit. Would definitely stay there again!
