About the property

Alto, New Mexico

If you’re in the mood for a peaceful mountain getaway, complete with spectacular accommodations that offer an abundance of upscale amenities, this Alto/Ruidoso vacation rental condo is just the place for you. This condo is the closest 3-bedroom rental unit to the entrance of Ski Apache, allowing you to easily access the plethora of thrilling outdoor adventures this area is known for! 

From the moment you first arrive, you’ll be in awe of the property’s breathtaking setting, nestled in the Lincoln National Forest. Look forward to spending time out on the private rear deck, where you can relax in the crisp mountain air and dine al fresco around the patio table - situated at 30-feet high and surrounded by 80-foot pine trees, this deck resembles a Pete Nelson tree house! During your time outdoors, you’re bound to spot deer, elk, wild mustangs, dozens of bird species, and other small mammals. 

This 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 2,100-square foot condo is ideal for guests who like to spread out and relax in privacy, as each bedroom features a private bathroom, and the open living room provides even more space to unwind. You’ll find the interior to be rustic and inviting, boasting brand new carpeting and a mix of mountain-inspired furnishings with modernized timber frame decor, which create a cozy “cabin in the woods” atmosphere for your stay. In addition, the unit has been updated with new plumbing fixtures and appliances to ensure ultimate reliability and convenience. 

After a day in the great outdoors, prepare a delicious home-cooked meal in the fully equipped kitchen, or fire up the gas grill and have a barbeque on the rear deck. Later, cozy up by the fireplace as you watch movies on the flat screen TV. There is additional flat screen TV in each bedroom, so you won’t have to worry about missing your favorite shows while away. For complete relaxation, take a soak in the master bathroom’s jetted tub before retreating to one of the comfortable bedrooms to rest up for the next unforgettable day. All the other amenities you need to feel as relaxed as possible are here, including air conditioning and onsite laundry facilities.

Throughout your stay, you and your companions will get to enjoy use of a multitude of services that are seldom found in comparable rental condos throughout the area. 24-hour onsite maintenance and repair plus monthly inspections ensure all amenities are in excellent working order, while daily snow plowing allows guests to drive safely to Ski Apache. You’ll also love having access to the complex swimming pool, workout room, and clubhouse with meeting facilities.  

You certainly won’t have to venture far to experience the best that the area has to offer, as this condo is within easy reach of amazing attractions in both Alto and Ruidoso. From hiking and hunting to photography and gold panning, this area boasts a wide variety of attractions that are sure to please every interest and taste. When you’re not gliding down the slopes at Ski Apache, enjoy sledding down the small hill located just 1 mile away. The golfers in your group will be delighted by the condo’s close proximity to 4 golf courses within the city limits, while the fishermen will appreciate the prime fly fishing opportunities nearby. Should you find yourself off the mountain, browse the local art galleries and museums, head to the casinos, or attend a horse racing event. In addition, this condo is conveniently located only 10 minutes from pizza parlours, Mexican restaurants, and coffee shops, as well as 20 minutes from additional restaurants and shopping centers. If you feel like exploring further from the condo, Albuquerque and Santa Fe can be reached in a 4-hour drive. Regardless of how you choose to spend your time here, this incredible Alto vacation rental condo will quickly become a place you want to return year after year!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The condo was very clean and up to date. The view from the balcony was great

cause you could see the deer and go out and feed them. I'm definitely

staying again if I have the chance! The owner was very helpful when I had

questions and I absolutely loved his place.

Bring family or friends and enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression was how clean and new everything was. The lodge-like atmosphere and the New Mexico décor made for very comfortable surroundings. Coming from Texas in the middle of the hot summer to stay at the condo was a welcome relief. Thank goodness for the unit’s air conditioning as well as Alto’s normally cool climate in the evenings. We saw wild horses, some even coming right to the condo as well as a dozen or so deer and one elk!

Bar-b-que-ing on the deck at night was a great way to end a perfect day of hiking, exploring and of course shopping.

We also enjoyed eating at Casa Blanca and hanging out at the new Sacred Grounds Café. The unit is very near several hiking trails and we were happy and surprised to find a horned toad along the path- now a rare sighting in Texas. Some teens with our party enjoyed the pool and foosball table in the clubhouse. The surroundings and accommodations made this experience with friends and loved ones outstanding. We can't wait to go back again!

Very spacious and peaceful.

Very nice rental! Once I got passed the key lock issue. (Operator error) Lol. But the owner was very helpful when I called. So, THANK YOU! My parents came along (first time visit to Ruidoso). The rental was very comfortable for us. My mom and I enjoyed the back deck for our morning meditation. Very peaceful.

Wonderful relaxing place to stay!

I loved this property from the moment I started emailing with the owner, Jeff. Felt like we had been friends for years and it felt like we were staying at a good friend's house. Tons of space and super cutely decorated. Couldn't have been happier!

You won't want to leave!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Warning: If you stay in this condo, you will NOT want to leave! This was my second stay here - and I can't wait to go back again!

It is beautifully decorated/elegant, cozy, comfortable, very spacious, and luxurious all at the same time.

The beds and linens are soft and comfy - the sofas are overstuffed and relaxing to lounge on - the luscious trees all around make you feel like you're in a tree house - the kitchen is wonderful to use while on vacation with family as it is open to the living room - the deck is wonderful to star gaze at night and have coffee on in the mornings...

Very conveniently located as just a few minutes from shopping/downtown Ruidoso, but right at the base of Ski Apache for easy access to the mountain as well.

I wish this was MY HOME and can't wait to go back for rest and relaxation!!

Beautiful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo in a fantastic location.

Seems secluded but close to amenities. Views from the deck were amazing. We saw several elk! We were fortunate to visit during the first big snowfall of the year. It was absolutely beautiful to watch either through the large windows or by venturing out to the deck.

The place has everything you need. Comfortable beds, great fireplace. Even has a grill which was great to use, even during the snow.

The roads were plowed almost immediately which was comforting.

We did have one issue that we needed to contact the owner about. He was amazing! In constant communication making sure everything was ok!

I would highly recommend this to family and friends.
