About David & Emily Royar

Married Couple with two children 18 and 21. Live in West of Fort Worth, I am in Golf Course management, and my Wife is an RN. Our 18 year old is a Senior in HS, and our 20 year old is a Junior at Texas Tech in Lubbock.

David & Emily Royar purchased this house in 2001

Why David & Emily Royar chose New Mexico

My wife and I both love the Mountains. When we saw the Upper Valley in Red River on a Vacation with family during the Winter, we knew we wanted to buy a piece of property there. We purchased on that winter ski trip and started to build that year. We have spent all of our family trips together in our beautiful house. We like the winters as much as the summers. Skiing is great with 3 ski resorts nearby, fishing is awesome, wildlife viewing is exceptional. If hiking is on your list, get ready. The highest peak in NM is right above our house (Wheeler Peak). Many small lakes too hike too, for fishing or just to sight see. Last but not least is the town of Red River. This is a great family place with all kinds of activities for the kids. Shopping and eating is at the top. You can walk from one end of the town to the other, no need for a car in town.

What makes this house unique

The highest mountain (Wheeler Peak) in New Mexico right above the house. The best views, places to hike, the most snow in New Mexico.

We always enjoy ourselves at Red River

  • 4 of 5

The cabin a

was a great size and location was perfect, lots of room for the kids to play in the snow and

go sledding. The cabin needs a little TLC but that did not put a damper on our trip.

Great Time at the Royar Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Despite mother nature knocking the power out twice, me and my family had a great time! David was on top of this each time it happened, and there was very little inconvenience. Loved the cabin, the hot tub and the game room! The view around the cabin is stunning. Thanks David for a very memorable time!

Great vacation getaway...

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. Our Christmas vacation was simply amazing. David was super informative and helpful... always available if needed for questions. Home was perfect, warm and cozy. We had 4x4 vehicle and would highly recommend it if you are there during the winter months... lots of beautiful snow but not as easy to drive in. Perfect family vacation with 3 teenage boys and a tween daughter. Memories made.

Such a lovely cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had almost everything we needed right there at the cabin. Except for a few trips to town and some hiking we hardly ever left! It was a wonderful time for our family and the perfect cabin!

Great cabin, great area, great owner.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cabin. Great wrap around porch that went around 3/4 of the cabin, so you are always able to get away from the sun or the rain. We took our entire family which included my husband and I and our 3 sons and their families. Abundance of room inside the cabin with two bedrooms and one bath downstairs. The upstairs included a loft with 3 single beds, a double and its own bathroom. The master bedroom that is upstairs is huge with its own bathroom and balcony. Our family enjoys sitting out at night by the campfire and our daughter in laws were able to sit in the great hot tub on the deck. We always enjoy staying in the Upper Valley because our family enjoys riding four wheelers which was easy because of great location. We were all spoiled by this cabin and this is now our cabin of choice when going anywhere near Red River. The cabin was very clean and the owner so great to answer all questions and excited for you to enjoy his family's cabin.

Beautiful house in an outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

Three families stayed together in this big beautiful house and we had plenty of room. The house is well stocked with everything you need. We didn't think the hot tub and the shuffleboard would be needed but the kids very much loved them both and spent tons of time soaking and playing shuffleboard, darts and bean bag toss. This house is really well situated for hiking and is pleasantly tucked away from the crowds yet only about 6 miles from town. We met some very friendly neighbors (some of whom are deer!) We also enjoyed seeing all the birds at the feeder.
