About the property

Beautiful Mountain home under perfect blue skies and great views of the valley!

We are pleased to introduce our "Home away from Home" to you!

We have owned this house for over 14 years, and have enjoyed it with our family and friends as a special place to get away from the hustle, bustle and heat of Houston, Texas.

Set high among the pine trees and aspens at 9,600 feet, our mountain playground consists of 5 acres overlooking the valley and ski resort of Angel Fire, offering breathtaking views from the deck that surrounds the house and the ceiling to floor glass wall that looks out from the vaulted living room. To our family, this home is the perfect place to relax and entertain for those who enjoy the finer things and the great outdoors. We have attached pictures from all four seasons showing the views from the house, the wildlife around the property and some of the colorful changes of flowers, trees, ans seasons that you will be able to enjoy depending oh the time of year you would like to visit. In all the seasons, a crystal blue sky is your backdrop.

Deer and elk commonly roam through the property which is situated in an area designated as the Aspens. The house sleeps up to 16 people with 4 bedrooms, a sitting room with a pull out trundle bed and, for an additional $100.00 per night, there are three sets of bunk beds in the bunk room for the kids and, in our case, the grandkids! Our home is located less than 10 minutes from the ski resort, 5 minutes from the country club and golf course and 10 minutes from Monte Verde Lake. Views all the way from Monte Verde Lake to Eagle Nest Lake can be seen from the deck.

As you drive up to the house, you'll notice that the easy access driveway is level, offers parking for multiple vehicles, and ends in a circle around some aspens in front of the garage, not the typical steep, slippery driveways that are so abundant in the mountains. You can pull right up to the door to unload your vehicle and enter through the "mudroom". Here you'll see an abundance of hooks and benches for your coats, skis, ski boots, etc. We appreciate that our friends and guests remove their shoes and boots, and slip on a pair of slippers, provided from a basket in the mudroom for their use throughout the house. All of our floors are heated, making walking around the house extremely comfortable. Immediately off the mudroom to the right is the bunk room. There are three sets of bunk beds for the kids set up so that falling out of the top bunks is minimized.This room is an additional $100.00 per night, which VRBO puts on as only 1 night's charge in their quote and has to be adjusted if you would like to include it.

To the left of the bunk room, up three steps is the game room. The large game room features a full sized pool table, two tall game tables, one with an extra large HD TV, and the other set up for games and puzzles or whatever you need to do to entertain yourselves. There are 8 tall stools, to reach the tall tables, and a long bench for sitting down between shots on the pool table. Off the back of the game room are three bedrooms, with Queen size beds, and a full bath.

Up the stairs from the game room, is the "Heart" of our home, the kitchen. With all the amenities of home, it’s a wonderful kitchen, set up for entertaining, where everyone will love to gather. With beautiful cabinets, cookware hanging from the ceiling, an extended counter with stools, an electric double oven on one wall, a gas range and convection oven across the counter, a double door refrigerator/ freezer with ice maker, and an additional ice maker on the counter next to the refrigerator. A microwave, dishwasher, and a wine cart for dispensing adult beverages to our guests, are also right off the extended counter. There are many appliances, both large and small, that allows you to cook for a few---or cook for a lot! Ample dishes, glasses, flatware, cookware, serving pieces, and kitchen linens are all in the kitchen---we have tried to provide all the comforts of home…..all you need is the food!

A large dining table with extensions is next to the kitchen along with a "greenhouse" on the deck that can be used for extra refrigerated storage in the winter, along with a gas grill inside for grilling away from the snow.

The living room is next with ceiling to floor glass, an entertainment center, fireplace and loft. On the loft you will see a full mount of a Blond Black Bear and Bull Elk. Also on the second floor is a reading room with a trundle bed that pulls out to present two single beds for sleeping, a half bath and laundry room. The master bedroom is on the north end with an attached shower with double shower heads, and access to the deck where you will find firewood stacked for the fireplace and a hot tub to relax in after a hard day of hitting the slopes.

There are six televisions around the house, in most of the bedrooms, the living room, and game room, all hooked up to satellite for your entertainment. A Blue Ray player and surround sound are in the living room for your use as well. Multiple games and puzzles are available for your kids to play with as well. A highchair is on the second floor and a "Pac and Play" is in the lower level if you need them for your stay. There are numerous other amenities around the house for your use that we can tell you about if you have specific needs during your stay.

Please email us if you have any questions about our home, the bunk room or other anything else, we would love to hear from you!

Beautiful Cozy Mountian home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home over Christmas Break. We had the best time. The kitchen had everything you could ever want to use. The beds were so comfortable and the kids loved the heated floors and hot tub. The big mud room was nice with 6 kids and keeping the snow contained. The bunk room was a nice addition to be able to give everyone their own space. The view was fabulous! We would absolutely stay here again. Thank you for opening your mountain home to us.

About Jack Kulasa

Our family has spent many vacations traveling to Ski resorts all over the country. After renting many executive homes for our trips, we decided to pick a location to purchase a second home that offered the best of what we liked at all the places we visited over the years. We wanted something that could accommodate us and our kids, along with their kids and friends. Being originally from the Great Lakes region, we wanted fall colors, snow for Christmas, golf in the summers. Something not too far from our home in Texas, but a place to go with a relaxing temperature (day and night) to get out of the Houston heat. Angel Fire fit the bill along with the added bonus of a large lot, abundant wildlife, and some of the best neighbors, friendly and fun, that you could find anywhere.

Jack Kulasa purchased this house in 2005

Why Jack Kulasa chose Angel Fire

We love the wrap around porch and the views. The large hot tub on the porch under crystal blue skies is extremely relaxing after a busy day. Carson National Forrest is just behind our subdivision at the top of the mountain, offering millions of acres to enjoy with the scenic meadows filled with wildflowers in the summer, majestic views of the mountain peaks and valley, what seems like unlimited trails and roads, and bountiful wildlife. Watching a sunset over these scenes is incredibly beautiful! Activities are plentiful for which ever season you visit here.

What makes this house unique

Our house comfortably sleeps 10 in the 4 bedrooms and the sitting room. In addition, we also have a furnished condo, a half a block from the main chair lift at the ski resort, that can also sleep 4 adults and a couple of kids if necessary. At times, our kids have had many of their friends over where we needed additional sleeping arrangements or In some cases, additional privacy was needed outside a house full of people and kids. Our condo is the only facility in Angel Fire that has covered parking and an elevator right next to the slopes.
