Overview

Ruidoso House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8 adults)

Twin Mountain Cabin is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 2,700 square foot secluded home located in historic Upper Canyon at the top of the hill with beautiful views of Sierra Blanca and Capitan Mountains. The Lincoln National Forest is 20 feet out the back if you and the family want to take a little walk in the woods. You can see deer, turkey, hummingbirds and occasionally you will see elk and bear. Children should be accompanied in the forest.

The King Bedrooms, Great Room, Dining Room and back deck have wonderful views of Sierra Blanca. The front deck has a beautiful view of Capitan and is sunny in the morning and shaded in the afternoon. The Master Suite has a king bed, office and bath. There are TV’s in all the bedrooms and a big screen HDTV with DVR in the Great Room, all connected to cable. There is a DVD also. There are games available for the whole family to enjoy and of course, there is the computer and printer in a separate location. The fully equipped kitchen is huge and will accommodate lots of cooks. There is a baby crib, washer and dryer, iron and ironing board and gas grill provided.

The cabin is one level with 14 steps coming up from the 2 car garage. There is a graduated gravel walk with railing from the garage up to the front door that has only 2 steps into the house. The third bathroom has a tall boy toilet with handicapped rails and the shower is a step in with hand holds. The doors and walkways throughout the house would accommodate a wheel chair.

Activities: Our cabin is minutes from the famous Ruidoso shopping district, restaurants, grocery stores, 15 minutes from the Inn of the Mountain Gods, 20 minutes from Ski Apache and Lake Bonita which has designated hiking trails. There is a Fun Tracker (go carts, water rides, cliff climbing, etc) 15 minutes away and for the smaller children there are pony rides about 15 minutes away. A Super Wal-Mart and The Ruidoso Downs Race Track and Billy the Kid Casino is about 20 minutes to the East and you can purchase general admission, or Turf Club and Jockey Club seats reasonably. Check out: Spencer Theater of Performing Arts. Mountain Annies Riversong Theater, Flying J Ranch (western show and chuck wagon dinner), lots of Art Galleries and the McGary Foundary.

You can take a day trip to old Lincoln (antique historical museums/homes where Jesse James roamed) and Capitan (home of Smokey the Bear). Another day trip: Alamogordo (New Mexico Museum of Space History with I-Max Theater and White Sands) and Cloud Croft (great shopping, eating and The Lodge where Cary Grant and Judy Garland stayed). Grindstone Lake is 15 minutes from the cabin if you like to fish. There are several public golf courses. We recommend you check with the Ruidoso Chamber of Commerce to see what activities are happening in town.

We get rave reviews from our guests and know that you and your family will enjoy your stay so much that you will return year after year like many of our guests.

About Joe Christian

We love Ruidoso, and consider it our second home! Our first home is in West Texas (Eldorado), and we love to get away to the coolness and solitude of Upper Canyon. Joe first visited Ruidoso with his family in the early '50s, and Judy made her first trip sometime in the '70s.

Joe Christian purchased this house in 2005

Why Joe Christian chose Ruidoso

We bought our first home in Ruidoso in 1996. We were out driving around Ruidoso one day and ended up at a lot with a For Sale sign high in the hills above Upper Canyon. When we climbed the hill and saw the view, we knew we had to build here.

Judy and I sat down with an architect in front of his computer and designed this home ourselves. It was completed in 2005.

What makes this house unique

The home backs up to the national forest, and is visited daily by deer and turkey. An occasional bear and elk will come by. It's very secluded, but only minutes from shopping, casinos, and skiing.

What a wonderful time we had!! The cabin was wonderful!! Very spacious, very clean and wow, what a view! I would recommend this facility to anyone. Plenty of room for grand children to play and to enjoy themselves. In addition, we all enjoyed seeing the deer from the balcony and utilizing the walking trail. Thank you so much for the wonderful facilities!!

Snowed in skiers

We arrived in the middle of a massive snow storm and despite a few hiccups due to the weather, had a marvelous time. Joe was so kind to check on us and make sure our arrival was safe. The cabin was gorgeous and the view was breath taking!! I would highly recommend this property to everyone, especially families as my 2 grandchildren had a blast!

Great stay!!

We met our grown children for a vacation and loved staying at the property. It was perfect, well maintained and a beautiful view of the mountains. Feeding the wildlife from the balcony was a highlight! Will be back next year.
