The Enchanted Circle Series Pt. 4: The Summer of Your Dreams

There’s no time like summertime in the Enchanted Circle. If the kids are out of school or you’re working remotely, you’ve got no excuses—spend the season in the land of enchantment when you invest in a summer mountain home. Say goodbye to the stifling heat of your hometown and hello to cool temps, minimal crowds and your favorite summer activities. Here’s why Angel Fire and the surrounding towns should be your home base this summer!

Your summer doesn’t have to be boring just because you don’t have weeks of PTO. With 40% of people working from home either part or full-time, it’s easier now than ever to transport your job outside the walls of your office, and Angel Fire is the ideal spot to set up your work-from-home headquarters. Unlike your hometown, temperatures in the southern Rockies don’t soar into the triple digits—it rarely exceeds 80 degrees in our mountain town, so you can take conference calls on your back patio all summer long! Plus, you can log off at 5 p.m. and hit the green or cast your line within a few minutes. Many Enchanted Circle homes are just minutes from premier golfing at the Angel Fire Golf Course or locals’ favorite fishing spots. Here you’ll savor your 5 to 9 after your 9 to 5 like you never have before.

Your kids will thank you for your investment in their summer memories when you purchase a summer home in the Enchanted Circle. Northern New Mexico comes alive in the warmer months, as crowds recede after ski season and summer activities open. The kiddos will love ziplining, fishing, hiking and biking all summer long. Pickleball and tennis courts are just minutes from many Angel Fire homes at the Angel Fire Resort, and the Monte Verde Lake gives locals and visitors the perfect paddle boarding, fishing and picnic spot. If you need a break from the sun, spend the day in Taos, where you can meander through more than 70 local art galleries.  There’s an endless list of activities to choose from in the Enchanted Circle, so you’ll never hear the words “I’m bored!”

The Enchanted Circle is the perfect place to invest in a second home you’ll use year-round. Not only is northern New Mexico less than a day’s drive from many nearby metro areas, like Houston, Dallas and Oklahoma City, but its cost of living is far cheaper than other popular mountain towns. Compare home, grocery and restaurant prices in Aspen or Vail to Angel Fire and you won’t think twice about purchasing a second home in the Sangre de Cristos.

The Enchanted Circle is a clear choice when choosing where to spend your summer. You’ll savor the temperate weather, constant activities and low cost of living. If you’re ready to transform your summers, give RE/MAX Mountain Realty a call.
