Ruidoso House Rental Photos and Description
Four Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Great view of Sierra Blanca

Location: Ruidoso, NM, USA (Three Hours South of Albuquerque, NM, One Hour West of Roswell, Two ½ Hrs. North of El Paso, TX). Airports at all three locations.

Accommodations: House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (sleeps 12). Approximately 1,600 SF.

We purchased the house in 2003 and it’s been a wonderful place to enjoy family memories over the years. The crisp cool mountain air, the laid back attitude and the numerous activities that Ruidoso has to offer is like few other places. Our house is located in a quiet area near Upper Canyon, about five minutes to downtown, ten minutes to the Inn of the Mountain Gods Casino, fifteen minutes to the Racetrack and/or the Ski Apache Resort.

A recently constructed large deck in the front of the house allows you to start your day with a cup of coffee on the deck while you watch the deer, listen for the turkeys and occasionally see Elk in the neighborhood. In the evenings we enjoy having a glass of wine while watching the sunset over Sierra Blanca and listening to the wildlife.

Ruidoso offers enjoyment for every season. From snow skiing and snowboarding at nationally known Sierra Blanca Ski Resort to tubing at the lower runs, in the winter; to horse racing at Ruidoso Downs, home of the All American Futurity, the “Worlds Richest Quarter Horse Race, in the Summer, there is plenty to keep you busy. There is also casino gambling at Billy the Kid Casino and at the world famous Inn of the Mountain Gods, to provide plenty of opportunities to test your luck. There is also golf at a number of local courses including the championship links at the Inn of Mountain Gods, Links and Cree Meadows.

Meet your friends at several wonderful restaurants or bars in Ruidoso. We have listed some of our favorite below in the Google maps sections.

By renting our house you get the wonderful comforts of a home, extreme privacy and spacious accommodations for nearly the same price as a cabin or motel in town.

I have been in the title industry since 1974, I took a few detours but am now back for good!

I enjoy art and spend a lot of time painting-watercolor. My enjoyment for art started in 1993 as I took my first watercolor class and have continued since then. I have been in Alto Art Studio Tour, Lincoln County Art Studio Tour and numerous other showings while living in Ruidoso. I have always been inspired by the BLUE sky in New Mexico, the southwest architect and many beautiful Churches, mountains and other outdoor scenery in Ruidoso and Lincoln County. Now my husband and I live in East Texas, so my subjects are different. We live within Sam Houston National Forest and near Lake Livingston.

In addition to my art, I take our two dogs - Lucy and Abby for walks. I wanted to move back to Texas to be closer to my family. However, I do miss my Ruidoso house, snow, wild life. I hope that you all enjoy it too!

Susie Wallace Holland purchased this house in 2003

I have had many memorable visits to Ruidoso since the 1960s with my parents. In the late 1990s, I started taking my boys to Ruidoso and after spending several weekends in Ruidoso decided to purchase a condo in 2001 as a part-time resident. In 2003, I made the leap and converted my part-time residency status to full-time by purchasing the Ponderosa Cabin. Since 2003, my adult children, dogs and I have had many memorable times at the house and in Ruidoso and Lincoln County. I married in the fall of 2009. By late 2011, we moved back to Texas to be closer to family.

I love the summer in Ruidoso-it may be warm during the day, but by 7pm, it cools down and have the windows open during the night and wake up to a cool morning. In the winter, we may get 6 to 8 in of snow but it is gone by the next afternoon. When you have that much snow, it is God's way of telling you to slow down for the day-and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

My neighborhood is quiet-I remember the first time my oldest son came to visit after I moved there. He said, 'it is so quiet'. My house is almost on top of its own mountain and is shared with some great neighbors. We would get together about once a month-I miss them and that time together so I hope you have the opportunity to meet them. They are all great people!

Pets-always! I have had lots of deer, turkeys and elk. Sometimes, I have had a bear visit (not in the house), but in the yard. After all, we took over their place.

Horse racing in the summer, Raspberry picking in late August, Apple picking in the neighborhood, smell fireplaces and Motorcycle Rally in the fall, Ski Apache opens Thanksgiving Day along with all the Christmas Festivities (parade, tree lighting and etc.). http://www.ruidoso.net

I love Lincoln County, get in on some history of Billy the Kid or pick Raspberries or head to the Lavender Farm, in Hondo Valley. There is always something going on in Ruidoso/Lincoln County.

This was our first family get away and I would not have changed a thing. The house was so amazing, the pictures do not give it justice at all. my family of five and my best friend and her family of five all had plenty of room and the kids loved the deer that came to the house every morning. The view of the mountain from the porch was breath taking and we can't wait to go again. Thank you for everything, it was a great trip with many wonderful memories.

Owner's Response: Megan, thank you so much for the great review. I always like hearing good things about my favorite house and town. I always want my guest to feel at home and very WELCOMED! I hope to hear from you again. Summer is a great time too-warm during the day but cool at night and lots of things to do or do nothing but "veg" on the deck and watch the hummingbirds!

Wow, wow, wow! First of all, the pictures just don't do this place justice, it's way bigger and really has that cabin feel in person! It's beautiful, spacious and the decor is so quaint and has all sorts of little extra touches to make you feel right at home. The spacious kitchen and two living rooms allow for plenty of room for bigger groups. The location is ideal, just right outside of midtown. The owner is so helpful and hospitable and made us feel very welcomed. This is a wonderful place to stay, if you're thinking about renting it for a get away, DO IT! You wont be disappointed!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review. I appreciate all your positive comments. I want my guest to feel at home and enjoy your stay! Hope to hear from you and your friends this year!

The place looks deceptively small in the photos but was more than ample once we arrived. The place is well cared for and listed at an unbeatable price for what it offers. The owner was pleasant and made herself available. No issues with the place. Highly recommended.
Owner's Response: I appreciate your review. I always want my guests to feel at home! Ruidoso is such a great town and I am glad that you picked my house while you were in Ruidoso.

This was the perfect cabin for my family and I! There was 8 of us (2 children) total with plenty of room to roam and everyone had a place to sleep! The cabin has everything you could possibly need- you literally just need yourself and clothes! The cabin has everything else you need. Great people to work with and definitely will be back!

I must say this place was very clean, the beds were not musty at all compared to other places we have stayed. The house itself was very clean and was odorless, and all the pictures on the site is exactly in home, even better in person. The owner was very attentive to every need and exceeded them as well. Owner called to make sure we made it safe and we had all the necessities we will be needing. Everything you could think of you would need they had, from pots, pans, spices, linens, pillows, toilet paper, diswhashing soap, you name it, it was there! The deer roams around and is not afraid to come close, my kids loved it! The view is awesome and it's located in a very quiet area in which you can just sit in front of the house and enjoy peace and quiet! It is close to downtown, casinos, and walmart! I highly recommend this rental, I thank the owner and her neighbor for everything. I really appreciate everything and my family and I will forever remember this little getaway, we will definitely come back!!
