Ruidoso Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)


Welcome to our open floorplan condo that combines for a one of a kind vacation experience. When you stay here you will FEEL like you’re in the mountains. At the Lodge at Lookout Manor we have incorporated as many natural styles - from the different types of wood used throughout the unit, to the flooring materials, to the interior color choices, all in an effort to bring the outdoors inside this cozy condo.

Located in the heart of Ruidoso directly off Mechem Dr - across the street from Cant Stop Smokin' BBQ. Our home is near Midtown and is centrally located to all area attractions. Check out the map feature below to discover just how great a spot this is... (Note: Default home placer on map is incorrect - we have labeled 'A' where our home actually is.)

About Jeff Brown

My name is Jeff. This is my wife Robin and myself halfway up Sierra Blanca mountain January of 2009. It was our first trip to Ruidoso and we had a blast - so much so that we came back with a condo :) We both teach and coach, and live in Flower Mound, Texas

Jeff Brown purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jeff Brown chose New Mexico

We fell in love with this property as soon as we walked in the door and saw the view out the back deck! We also loved the open floor plan and the proximity to area attractions.

What makes this condo unique

Honestly, it just seems to be the perfect place. It's located in the middle of town right off Mechem. Popular restaurants and hangouts are right next door. Mid-town is within walking distance as well. The view of the Sacramentos is incredible and deer come down next to the condo and relax in the shade several times a week.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for the helpful information that you guys provided prior to our arrival and at the condo. Despite the wind gusts and blowing sand (just what we thought we had left behind in Seminole) we enjoyed ourselves. We have one more game this afternoon. :) Our stay was comfortable with the washer/dryer and short walk to the grocery store for forgotten necessities.

Inside was clean, spacious and well equipped

  • 3 of 5

This was our first visit to Ruidoso, NM and had no idea what to expect, we located this unit on VRBO and overall pleased. The unit was clean, spacious and well equipped for a rental. A few items were dated and could be repaired or replaced but functional. The owner responded within the hour to answer our questions which were easily rectified. We hope to go back to the area again but plan to stay a little longer to enjoy more of the area.

Quaint Little Condo on Main St.

  • 4 of 5

At first glance, the exterior is a little off-putting but the condo was clean, neat, and homey inside! We enjoyed staying in the spacious rooms and the mountain view from the balcony. There are a handful of restaurants within walking distance. The property is well-located near the main shopping area and a short drive up into the mountains for a hike. I would recommend staying here.

I did not expect the lodge to be an apartment but it was very quiet. Looks can be deceiving.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at The Lodge at the Lookout Manor. It was walking distance to downtown shopping. The apartment was clean and comfortable. It was very quiet and we had a great time.

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this property. We arrived right before dark, and were a little concerned that the adjoining properties (below) appeared to be permanent residencse and some of the porch areas were being used for storage. However, our concerns ended up being unwarranted.. It was very quiet the 4 days and 3 nights we were there. The location is centrally located, so getting to/from attractions was easy. The property was clean, the linens appeared to be newly purchased and/or excellent quality. The master bedroom king size bed was the MOST COMFORTABLE bed I've slept on in years! The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, and my 24-year old son loved playing the PS2 games he fondly rememebers from his teen years. Netflix was easily accessible on the tv, and the wifi was great. Last, but not least, the deposit refund that could've taken up to 14 days per the rental agreement was refunded on the 2nd business day after our return. I would definitely recommend this property to others!

Comfortable in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time in the last two years we have utilized this property as a base for our spring mountain hiking when it is too cold to camp. Having three bedrooms was a big plus. The bath and a half was fine for our needs of three people. The condo was clean and offered all the amenities one would need in a rental unit. The deck is large and the gas grill was very nice for cooking evening meals. The kitchen is large enough for several people to work in at once. A large plus is the fact that it is located right off the main street through Ruidoso, which makes driving or walking enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this property.
