True cabin built in 1960 with solid wood flooring and walls . . . Spectacular views of the mountains, Sierra Blanca in particular from high level deck . . . Original decor but outfitted with 21st century conveniences: Flat screen TV, dish network, all kitchen and bath amenities. Ceiling fans in every room; baseboard heat and wood burning stove for winter months. Totally isolated, gravel road entrance--yet 5 minutes from downtown Village of Ruidoso, 10 minutes from 3 casinos and racetrack.
Golf/Skiing/WiFi: Sandy's Place is within 10 minutes of three championship golf courses (Inn of the Mt. Gods, The Links at Sierra Blanca, Cree Meadows) and 30 minutes from Ski Apache resort, which is open from Thanksgiving through March. Sandy's Place also, for $10 a day, offers WiFi internet 'hot spot' access.
Cool! and wildlife: Cabin is set at 7500 feet, which averages about 8 degrees cooler in the summer from downtown, and 15 degrees cooler than the El Paso/Albuquerque/Lubbock southwest! Visitors from the Dallas or Houston area will notice that while Sandy's Place is in the mountains, it still carries LOW humidity.
Deer, elk, wild turkeys, raccoons daily visitors--most female deer will eat deer corn out of your hand!
Access: Sandy's Place is easily accessed from US 70 through downtown Ruidoso, New Mexico--yet retains it's quiet charm off a gravel access road that accommodates two full-time residences and this home. Easy accessibility in spring, summer, and fall by any vehicle: winter months might require 4-wheel drive depending on conditions.
