Our family of 4 (two kids age 8 and 5) really enjoyed our stay at this property. It did feel like a home away from home and had all necessary amenities. It is also is closer to Ski Apache than staying in Ruidoso proper - so it saves at least 10-15 minutes on the drive to that destination. We took the kids to a nearby stocked pond and they also caught their first fish - which we promptly cooked and ate! As a bonus, the property is located in a nice, quiet area. On our way back to Austin we stopped by White Sands National Monument, Lincoln National Forest, and Carlsbad Caverns. All in all a very memorable vacation for the family and we really appreciated our 4 day stay here. Thanks Diane!
