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 for which this area is renowned!


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 parlors, 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.

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!

Property is just like in the pictures. Very spacious! Location is perfect for skiing and winter park. Casino is a short drive(no big deal). Property was very clean, and had everything we needed. I will definitely inquire in this property in the future!

Really enjoyed the morning view out in the balcony. We got to see plenty of deer and beautiful birds. Very peaceful and cozy. We will defiantly recommend it to anyone looking to enjoy some time away from home. All the reviews for this property are right on point can’t add anything else. It was an overall wonderful stay.

We will be back!!

Spacious, comfortable, home away. We enjoyed the beautiful scenic view off of the deck and from the living area! We had Deer and lots of hummers visiting as well as the largest blue birds I've ever seen. The convenience of no stairs will be nice if we want to bring our parents, also.

We will be back!!
