House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 10 Sleeps
We offer a 3000 sf fully furnished and amenity filled home for a relaxing mountain experience.

Our home is located at the Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club 10 miles north from downtown Ruidoso at an elevation of 7450 ft. The homesite sits on a heavily wooded ridge with predominantly southern views of sunrises and sunsets. There are 5 large sized bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, and it sleeps 10 easily. We have an additional 3000 sf of outside deck area on three levels with spectacular views of Sierra Blanca. The kitchen is fully equipped - microwave, disposal, stove, dishwasher, utensils, cookware, and a breakfast bar. Other features include a family dining table, vaulted greatroom and a separate downstairs media/gameroom for entertaining.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Thanks for the wonderful week at your mountain home. We made a lot of family& friend memories to cherish forever, late night lounging on the deck and in the hot tub. The kids enjoyed the game room, everything was perfect. Thank you for one of our best vacations...so relaxing...we loved it.

Wonderful Family Place
This was a very welcoming and homey place to spend time with our family. Lots of room and things to do. We were there for the Cowboy Symposium, but in retrospect we all wish we had spent most of our time there and less at the Symposium. It was just very relaxing.
Needs some work
I want to commend the owners of this property for their customer service because while our stay wasn't as good as it could have been the owners of this property made every effort to compensate us for our problems we encountered at their home. Our problems were taken care of quickly and the owners were friendly and timely under difficult circumstances. In all fairness I couldn't write a good or a bad report without giving the owners a fair chance to fix the issues we encountered at their property. I can only say that the owners are good people and they tried to do the right thing for us, their customer.
This house is fantastic. Has all the accommodations needed and so much more.
This property is every bit as good as advertised. We have stayed many places in Ruidosa, but this is by far the best. The downstairs game room area is a great place to sit and relax, read a book or play cards and pool. The rest of the house was roomy enough for the two couples that traveled with us and each couple could have a complete floor and bathroom to their selves. This was a great place to stay to enjoy the comfort and view, to enjoy all that Ruidosa has to offer. The deck space is fabulous and where we spend all of our mornings talking and enjoying the wildlife that comes to visit.
Thank you Jim and Dinah for letting us stay at your house. We will be back.
Great Place in the Mountains
This was our second stay, and we enjoyed the cabin once again. The hummingbirds and other various birds were fun to watch with our morning coffee. Our two grandchildren enjoyed the abundant deer population. Of course the basement game room was a big hit with everyone. We hope to stay again in the future.
Great property with plenty of room for a group. Clean and well furnished
We stayed for three nights at this property and it accommodated our group very well and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was well furnished and clean and the views from the deck where amazing. We had zero problems during our stay and would highly recommend this house for anyone wanting to enjoy a few days in Ruidoso.
Very Nice Place
Enjoyed our stay with the children and grandchildren. Great location. Daughters and wife were very pleased with the furnishings, and all the essentials were there. Everything worked. Nice owners.
