New Mexico House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6 privately, 8 total, large decks, Jucuzzi

Our home is near the Country Club restaurant and activities. We are north of Ruidoso where there is dining, shopping, and many seasonal celebrations. The Ski Run Road to Sierra Blanca is located 1/2 mile from the Alto Country Club entrance. The horse racing and Inn of the Mountain God Resort is within 15 miles. Roomy living room/dining room and plenty of deck for relaxing and entertaining. Our home is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, fully furnished which sleeps 6/8 comfortably. There are 2 queen size beds, 2 twin beds upstairs, and a queen sleeper sofa in the den. The living room, kitchen and dining room combination is an open concept with a rock fireplace. There are two tables and a bar for dining. Our home may look cute and cozy from the outside, but is large and roomy inside, over 1700 square feet. The kitchen is fully stocked with just about any appliance you should need. There is a dishwasher, garbage disposal, large refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker and electric range. The televisions are connected to Dish Satellite with VCR/DVD, and favorite family tapes/dvds for your pleasure. There is not a phone as your cell phones will work at our home. There is a large shady deck with two tables, umbrellas, and about 8+ chairs. There is also a Jacuzzi that is serviced each week and maintained at a perfect PH. The home is right off the 6th hole of the Alto Country Club Golf course. As our guests, if your stay is 7 nights or more, you may request a guest letter to enable you and your family to enjoy the swimming pool, tennis courts, restaurant, bar, and golf course. You will have to use your own credit card to make purchases.

Spacious and comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the house and its jacuzzi on the terrace! Although the house is surrounded by other (holiday) homes, it was quiet, but alive with many birds, which were great to watch. The house is bigger than two people and a dog would need, but it did not feel too big at all, due to the different seating areas. The master bedroom has a very comfortable bed, which we find important when traveling.

Beautiful, Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This place was convenient to shopping the blvd, skiing, zipline,winter park or a night out with dinner and a movie. Very clean, comfortable and everything you needed. We woke up to drink coffee on the deck while watching wild deer grazing in the yard. I loved the nights we grilled steaks and sat in the hot tub. We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. We love the deck to relax, read and watch the wildlife. Hummingbirds in the summer is one of my favorites!

Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short and were only there overnight. It was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The location was easy to find and the deck looked like it would have offered a quiet place to relax, talk or read a book. The beds were very comfortable. We noticed it was for sale but if it is available when we go again, we would choose to return. We would recommend it. The only drawback was the area to park the car which was sufficient for us as we only had one vehicle but if you had more than one that could be a challenge.

Great location for Ski Apache and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

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!
