About Kim Beckett
We live in beautiful sunny Florida, but it is really hot! We thoroughly enjoy coming to Angel Fire in the summer. We start every day with a cup of coffee on the front porch admiring the beautiful mountains and watching the humming birds fight over the sweet nectar! There is so much to do in this incredible mountain resort, we have trouble deciding. Playing golf, fly fishing, sight seeing & animal viewing are probably our favorite things. We play lots of games, enjoy great food (some cooked at home, but lots out at the various restaurants Angel Fire and the surrounding areas have to offer!), and cap the evening off with an incredible fire during the summer. We call our friends back home and they can't believe we are enjoying cool crisp mountain air while they are home melting! Angel Fire here we come! We have not been able to visit as often in the Winter, it's a busy time of year for us at home. Last winter we brought the children out skiing. What a blast. We started off on the many green slopes and by the end of our trip were enjoying the blues. Our next door neighbor is an expert skier and can't get enough of the challenging blacks! After a long day of skiing, relaxing with warm beverages, fire building and game playing is a must! Winter is wonderful and so different in Angel Fire compared to Florida. We are definitely making time this winter. :-)
Kim Beckett purchased this House in 2005
Why Kim Beckett chose Angel Fire
Angel Fire has something for everyone! My husband is originally from Texas and grew up vacationing in Angel Fire. Later on, he fished & skied up here with friends. Being from Florida, I had never heard of Angel Fire, NM. He immediately introduced me to this intoxicating slice of paradise! We love the cool weather, hiking, skiing, biking & the fact that you can still enjoy terrific local and national art, history & fabulous close by! The views are spectacular & the weather is wonderful.

Loved the location and the house
We loved the location and the house. The view from the living room through the windows was beautiful with and without snow! The house is a short drive to the ski lodge and it was easy to park if you went early. We went for ski school so no problem finding parking. The Country Club near by has an awesome sledding hill near the house that the kids loved. We did go swimming a day but it was more expensive than I thought ($12 for adult and $8 for a kid), but maybe if you swim all day it's worth it, we only stayed a couple hours.
We had two families with 5 kids total and had plenty of space. Tons of pillows and blankets and the kids loved the bunk room. Kitchen has everything you need and the people before are nice enough to leave a few condiments and coffee filters so we didn't need to re-buy everything day one. We did drive a mini van and it was a bit dicey getting up the hill in the mud and then later in the snow. We stayed in one day afraid if we went down the hill we would not make it back up as they did not plow the street. If you have AWD or 4 wheel drive you would be totally fine.
Would recommend for 2 or even 3 families. Great backyard for kids to play and beautiful views.
Sooooo happy you all had such a wonderful time. Angel Fire is truly an incredible place.
We are so happy you enjoyed the location of our house...we think it is the best! So close to everything, yet beautiful views. Please join us again. Thanks for staying with us:) Kim & Clark
Spacious and comfortable
Angel Fire was beautiful - loved all the snow! Home was spacious and comfortable, we had 3 couples and a few older teens - house worked well for us. Loved the open concept living, dinning, kitchen. The wildlife were amazing to see up so close!
I am so happy you enjoyed our "home away from home"! You definitely picked the perfect year to head to Angel Fire. So happy you had terrific snow. We hope to see you in Angel Fire again soon. kim:)
Very nice house.
We had a nice stay at the home and enjoyed the skiing at Angel Fire.
We are so happy you enjoyed our home away from home:) Angel Fire is a very special place. I know there was not a ton of snow this year, but thank goodness for man made when you need it.
We hope you will join us again soon!
No snow, but we had a good time
We enjoyed the experience of staying in the house. The beds were comfy, and there was lots of space for the seven of us, all adults. It would have been so much better if there had been lots of snow for the skiers, but they found some man-made snow on a few slopes at Angel Fire, Taos and at Sipapu. The weather was very pleasant with temperatures in the 40's and 50's F every day between Christmas and New Years - the reason that there was no snow on the landscape. One of the adults was in a wheelchair, so we appreciated the ease of getting from the vehicles in the driveway to the house without having to contend with stairs. My husband, who is a Mr Fix-it, worked on the faucet on the master bathroom sink, which was not working properly, and then it was fine. The gas stove was a challenge, but one of the adults had the magic touch, and got the oven going every time. The ping pong players enjoyed the table in the garage, and the whole group liked playing some of the games we found in the game cabinet.. The only issues that we had were 1) getting the right temperature in the whole house with only one thermostat, and 2) the fact that the room with the bunk beds in it was so small compared with the sizes of the other bedrooms, which were huge.
I am sooo happy you all had a wonderful time...despite the lack of snow! You just never know, the past few years we have had tons of snow. Thank goodness for man made snow in time of need:)
I am glad you found our home comfortable and easily accessable! The flat drive and entry is a huge advantage. Since there wasn't a ton of snow, indoor games really do come in handy. My kids have more fun with all the games, and we have heated ping pong tournaments.
Thank you so much for the house tlc. I have passed along the faucet issue to our caretaker. We also have family heading out this week and they will check the entire house over as well.
I hope you are having a terrific 2018 and we hope you will visit us again:)
Wonderful place to stay!!!

The owners were wonderful and made our vacation so Hassel FREE!!! We really enjoyed the experience!
We are so glad you all enjoyed your Angel Fire vacation. It is definitely a little slice of paradise up there!!! We look forward to your return. kim & clark:)
Great four bedroom, three bath home for our family ski get-away in Angel Fire!
Kim and her caretaker were accessible and friendly, answering questions prior to our arrival.
The home was pretty clean and had a fairly well stocked kitchen....though a slow cooker would have been helpful.
We'd definitely recommend this home to others.
The snow was excellent for skiing.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay in Angel Fire and at our home. The snow has been AMAZING this year...such a bonus!
I am a neat freak, so I will definitely check with our caretaker and make sure our home is spotless for your next visit. I have to be honest....a slow cooker is a great idea;)
