Property Details

Updated: May 23, 2015
4 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Sleeps 6-8

Nestled among pines, spruce, and aspens, this unique, comfortable two story home in the Country Club subdivision is the perfect spot to spend time relaxing, sightseeing, or enjoying the many area activities. Enjoy the back deck, looking out out over a stand of pines. Listen to the winds moving up the green belt to rustle the aspen leaves and watch for occasional wild game in this quiet neighborhood.

Love the cool, pleasant summers at 8500 feet; the cool, crisp falls with colorful aspen leaves late Sept. - early Oct.; and the snow in winter and early spring.

Upstairs are 2 bedrooms (king and queen beds) and a full bath w/tub. Downstairs, find two bedrooms with 2 twins in each); full bath w/tub, shower, and laundry facilities; living room with wood burning stove; full kitchen and dining area (seats 8); sun room with table (seats 4) and sofa; fourth bedroom adjoins attached garage; back deck with built in benches and 4 garden chairs.

Walk to the lake and enjoy beautiful drives and walking/biking paths in the country club subdivision and surrounding areas, including national forests.

Located 1/2 mile (around the block) from Monte Verde Lake and 2 miles from ski and shopping area. We recommend 4 wheel drive in case of heavy snow; however, front wheel drive is usually adequate.

Custom Designed Home - The Perfect Angel Fire Get Away
Angel Fire New Mexico

spring break angel fire family

  • 5 of 5
Great house in very pretty location near the slopes the lake and necessities with the feel of home. Four college age sons and parents getting to share that precious family time so rare as they get older. Everything you need to enjoy time in the snow and the deer even love it and visit twice a day. The owners are very personable people who go the extra mile to make sure you love their home as much as they do. The set up is probably perfect for summer time trips also with the view and outdoor cooking available on the large deck. Highly recommend.

We had an excellent time. I would recommend it to families with children and elderly. Every thing was clean, and we had all the things we needed.

Great value for the Family

  • 4 of 5
The neighborhood is just beautiful and the outside of the home is rustic. When we walked in the front door the orange carpet was a little scary it could use some new carpet and living room furniture. One of the bedrooms is on the other side of the garage. The kitchen has everything you need and lots of space with two dining areas. Love the fire place, wireless internet and cable tv. My personal favorite was the huge deck out back and breath taking yard. Very close to Angel Fire Resort and had a blast skiing. We had a great stay and would visit again. For the price it is an excellent value.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback and comments. We are glad you enjoyed your Angel Fire experience in our home over the Christmas holidays. The pastel peach colored carpet does need to be replaced, and it is on our list of improvements we plan for Casa Dores. The fourth bedroom off the attached garage was mentioned in our description on VRBO/Home Away. Usually children prefer that bedroom because it is more “private” and has “its own TV”. We’re glad you enjoyed the deck, yard, and neighborhood, and hope you’ll choose to come back to enjoy it in the summertime.


From the Owner

An outfitter in New Mexico and Texas, this Texas owner has spent August-January in New Mexico overseeing various hunting seasons since 1977. After leasing homes in the Angel Fire 6 years, Casa Dores became our family 'home away from home.' Aside from hunting season, Casa Dores has been our destination for Christmas holidays, spring break, and summer vacations. The hunter retired in 2009, the kids are grown, and we'd like to share our 'favorite spot' with you.

This custom home was built by a young architect as his first family home and is a fun place to visit. It is positioned with access to the greenbelt. We settled on this property because of its unique charm and comfortable, livable spaces, as well as its accessibility to shopping and a wide variety of activities.
