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.

Cozy, comfortable, and convenient
We really enjoyed our stay over spring break at this very cozy home. It had everything we needed for our two families. Everyone had space to play or have some alone time but also plenty of communal gathering areas to eat, play games, and relax together. The kitchen had everything we needed and all of the appliances worked well. The wood-burning stove worked really well too and heated the whole house quickly. We were in Angel Fire to ski and found the house to be in a very convenient location. It took us less than 10 minutes to get to the slopes, the grocery store, and the ski rental shop. It was also very convenient to have a washer and dryer in the house, particularly in a year where there was as much mud as there was snow! The only issue we ran into was running out of hot water for showers when all 8 of us needed a shower at the end of the day. We could squeeze in 3 at a time before the hot water ran out. Overall, we were very pleased with this house and definitely plan to come back again. The owner was so nice and great with communication. I highly recommend it.
Great place for a large family
The property owners are wonderful people and helped us out the entire time we were there. When we arrived the power company was having some problems and the lights in the house weren't all working. Connie called to make sure we knew where everything was and that we were getting settled in.
The house is set up great for kids and adults a like. The games were a great addition and the kutchen was well stocked with cooking equipment. If we come to Angel fire again and this house is available we would stay again.
Super Snow Time
We have been here before and we couldn't wait to come back. Everything was great again and this time the snow was even more awesome. We ski this resort more than any other place we have been and our whole family learned here through generations now. This home is owned by an awesome family. They take care of the home and their guests with every detail. Whether you have a large family like ours or a small group this is a great place and the value is unbeaten.
spring break angel fire family
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
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.
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.”
