It’s all about the great outdoors when you visit the mountain village of Ruidoso and no residence does a better job of surrounding you by nature’s beauty than Upper Canyon Lodge. The Lodge is about a mile into Upper Canyon just west of Ruidoso. Wildlife will be your neighbors when you stay in this amazing lodge with two decks, the lower one with a secluded hot tub where you can relax amid the sights and sounds of nature. Everything about Upper Canyon Lodge is first class and designed to provide creature comforts that will make your stay a true pleasure for your entire group.
Upper Canyon Lodge is a four-bedroom, four-bathroom air-conditioned cabin that can accommodate up to eight. When you arrive, you’ll find paved parking for up to three vehicles outside the lodge. If your stay is during the winter months, it’s wise to arrive in a four-wheel drive vehicle or at least have chains for any two-wheel drive cars.
You enter Upper Canyon Lodge on the upper floor, which is level with the parking. The outside of the lodge may look like a typical cabin from the parking area, but when you open the front door, prepare to be stunned. Your living room features comfortable furniture surrounding a gas fireplace. A wall of windows lets the beauty of nature into your living space and a large flat-screen TV with cable and a DVD sits to the side of the fireplace. How fun it will be to gather in this beautiful space to watch a favorite movie while the fire glows before you. You also have free high-speed Internet within Upper Canyon Lodge so you can arrange tee times, keep in touch with friends back home, and play games. You are far from the city, but all the comforts of home are still at your fingertips.
Just beyond your living room is your dining room where you’ll find a handsome table for eight lit by an antler chandelier. It’s one of many subtle nods to your home’s location in the mountains of the Southwest.
Playing in the mountains tends to build up hearty appetites, and within Upper Canyon Lodge you have a kitchen that’s up to the task of satisfying them. You have a full complement of stainless steel appliances, including a gas stove and a side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water dispenser. Granite countertops give you plenty of prep space and you have all the cookware and serving ware you need to prepare your group’s favorite dishes.
On many days, you’ll probably want to take your food out to the covered deck and enjoy it amid the sights and sounds of nature. You also have a Weber gas grill on the deck so you can sizzle up some tasty steaks or burgers for your group. Everything about this deck is perfect, including the comfortable sitting area at the other end of the deck with couch, multiple chairs, and coffee table.
When night comes, you’ll continue living in the lap of luxury. On the main floor are two bedrooms each with a queen-sized bed and a third bedroom with a set of two twin beds. Each of these rooms is beautifully decorated and guests will be pleased to claim them as their personal retreats. There are five TVs and three DVD players within Upper Canyon Lodge and several TVs are set up within these guest bedrooms. What guests will appreciate the most is having their own private bathroom. Having four bathrooms means there’s no waiting around for a turn in the shower. It won’t take long for your entire group to be enjoying breakfast on the deck and planning the day’s adventures.
Downstairs at Upper Canyon Lodge is where you’ll find the master suite. But when you come down the stairs, you’ll first enter a bonus living room with comfortable furnishings. It’s a great place for a couple of friends to have a private conversation or a few quiet moments together. The master retreat includes a comfortable king-sized bed, lamps for bedtime reading, and a wall-mounted TV in case you want to catch up on some late-night shows. Before you close your eyes for the night, slip out onto the lower deck and enjoy some time in the hot tub. You’ll get out relaxed and totally ready for a good night’s rest.
In the morning, your en suite bathroom will be the ideal place to grab a shower and get ready for your day. Before you know it, you’ll be upstairs looking for your first cup of coffee.
Upper Canyon Lodge has a washer and dryer within the home. This may be the first time you are able to return home from vacation with a suitcase full of clean clothes.
