    If you're in the mood for a peaceful mountain getaway with spectacular accommodations and an abundance of upscale amenities, this Alto/Ruidoso vacation rental condo is just the place for you. This condo is the closest 3-bedroom, 3-bath unit to the entrance of Ski Apache, allowing easy access to a plethora of thrilling outdoor adventures for which this area is renowned! After a day of outdoor adventures, enjoy amenities like large flat-screen TVs, a karaoke machine, fitness machines, and more!

    THE PROPERTY

    Master Bedroom: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: Queen Bed | Exercise Room/Porch: Queen Hideaway Bed

    From the moment you 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.

    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 a DVD on one of the large flat-screen TVs. Those who'd like to stay in shape during their stay can jog on the treadmill or use the Total Gym to work off those calories!

    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'll 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, tennis court, workout room, and clubhouse with meeting facilities.

    THE LOCATION

    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 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!

I like convenience and also like a place to be clean. We loved this place! The unit was well-prepped, clean and inviting. Nice decor- Very fitting for the unit...which adds to the nostalgia. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and very prompt in returning emails. Overall, we had a great experience and enjoyed our stay.

    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.

    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!!

    HEAVENLY AND FUN MOUNTAIN RETREAT = #15

    We wanted a cozy, CLEAN, family friendly house that would provide each of us with our own space, privacy from one another, indoor and outdoor play areas for my granddaughter, fun in the snow, and beautiful views. We found it here! 3 bedrooms each have a new cable TV, 3 FULL bathrooms - 2 inside the bedrooms and one in the adjacent hall, an open kitchen with eat-in bar, an open dining and living room with fireplace, and a connected glass den with workout equipment. This room was a big hit with my granddaughter because the television had a DVD player, and she entertained herself within eyesight. She was constantly running to the floor-to-ceiling windows in search of the deer we fed on the driveway each morning. Details:

    1. HOUSE: It's a cozy, lodge style. All areas but the bedrooms are open to one another, making it possible to socialize between the kitchen, living room and glass den. This is a nice feature if you have family of different age groups. After skiing the morning of Super Bowl Sunday, we used the grill on the treetop balcony while watching the game from the kitchen and comfy sofas in front of the fireplace.

    2. BEDROOMS: All have equally good bedding and private baths. One BR has a bath with shower stall in the hallway, but it's right outside the door. It's "fair" sleeping for all in large groups. No haggling over who pays extra, with a small exception on the master. All beds are queens, the bedding is new and good quality. Plenty of extra sheets and there's a washer and dryer in the kitchen. The sofa in the glass den is also a sleeper.

    3. MASTER: The master bedroom has a HUGE attached bathroom with deep jacuzzi tub and double sink vanity. It's one of 2 ways to access the master bedroom - from the hallway or from the glass room.

    4. KITCHEN: The only thing you need to bring or buy are groceries and laundry detergent. The kitchen has every appliance or piece of equipment you can imagine. The dishwasher detergent is supplied because you MUST follow their very clear directions since the hard water leaves a film on glass.

    5. FUN/TOWN: Besides skiing and snow boarding in the area, Ruidoso is cute and is fun to stroll. The Walmart that carries inexpensive ski and snow gear in case you forget something. We bought an inexpensive sled that we used in the on-property and at the ski area. (It's in the entry way closet for ourselves and others for next time, but PLEASE leave it there if you use it!

    My daughter and I needed this trip. My dad had recently passed away, we wanted some mom/daughter time, and she and her husband needed a getaway with built in babysitting. Symbiosis! We were looking for a week of fun AND tranquility within driving distance from Austin, and we hit the jackpot! We had her 20 month old; our husbands were flying to meet us for a long weekend (Note: when flying you will have to get to El Paso and rent a car for the 2+ hour drive. In retrospect, they too, should have driven.). We needed a cozy, CLEAN, well equipped, family friendly house that would provide each of us with our own space, privacy from one another, indoor and outdoor play areas for my granddaughter, fun in the snow for all of us, and beautiful views. #15 at ----- provided it ALL. I mean ALL! There are 3 bedrooms, each with new cable TVs, 3 FULL bathrooms - 2 inside the bedrooms and one adjacent, an open kitchen with eat-in bar, an open dining and living room with fireplace, and a connected glass den with workout equipment. We did not use the equipment of course, as much of our trip was about relaxation and comfort, but this room was a big hit with my granddaughter. The television in it has a DVD player which kept her entertained with Daniel Tiger, playing with her toys, and running to the ceiling-to-floor windows in search of her dear, deer friends we fed on the driveway every morning. Deer were actually outside her bedroom window when she woke, waiting for us to hand feed them! Here are some unique and great features about this particular property in Alto, NM that will have us returning: 1. HOUSE: Its decorated in a cozy, lodge style. All areas but the bedrooms are open to one another, making it possible to socialize between the kitchen, living room and glass den. This is a nice feature if you have family of different age groups. After skiing the morning of Super Bowl Sunday, we used the grill on the treetop balcony while watching the game from the kitchen and comfy sofas in front of the fireplace. Our granddaughter played in the open, adjacent glass den watching her toddler DVDs, and there was no sound interference between the 2 TVs. There is so much seating space, we could've had a party! There are 3 sofas in the living room and 1 in the den. I did a lot of reading and planning for our side trips and dinners out on the smaller, cozy sofa that faces the treetop balcony. I'm really picky about upholstery and bedding in rental property and have been known to travel with Lysol spray. It was NOT needed in this house! They must have an excellent cleaning or management group. 2. BEDROOMS: All bedrooms have equally good bedding and private baths. Again, one bedroom has a bath with shower stall (no tub) in the hallway, but it's right outside the door, and the bedroom is as nice or nicer than the others. It's fair sleeping for all in large groups! No haggling over who pays extra, with small exception on the master. All beds are queens, the bedding is new and of good quality, there are plenty of extra sheets, and there's a washer and dryer in the kitchen. (I wish I'd known. Pack light because you can wash!) If you have extras in your group or a singleton who doesn't want to share a queen bed, the sofa in the glass den is a sleeper. We didn't need it, so I don't know how well it sleeps, but I did see a foam topper in one of the closets that could make it comfy. 3. MASTER: The master bedroom has a HUGE attached bathroom with deep jacuzzi tub and double sink vanity. It's one of 2 ways to access the master bedroom - from the hallway or from the glass room. This bathroom is clearly a remodel as the toilet is near the tub so it's not private, but you can close the bath off with doors from the bedroom and hall. It has has nice, new cabinetry, counters, fixtures, lighting and tile. 4. KITCHEN: The only thing you will need to bring or buy are groceries and laundry detergent. The kitchen has every appliance or piece of equipment you can imagine. The dishwasher detergent is supplied because... You MUST follow their very clear directions for using the dishwasher since the hard water is very mineral heavy. If glassware doesn't look clean when you arrive, the previous guests didn't follow directions for adding the provided vinegar to the cycle. If you plan to cook, bring your own seasonings. The kitchen is fully equipped for meal prep, but I don't think you'll find even salt & pepper. 5. USAGE: Directions for using the WiFi, TVs, fireplace, trash facility, and everything else are nicely framed and clearly posted throughout the house. These "signs" don't feel unfriendly. It feels like they are there to genuinely help you enjoy your stay and to help maintain this extra special rental. There is contact info in case your section of the driveways need to be cleared of snow, information about where the community center pool and conference room are located, and information about where to eat and what to do in town. 6. FUN: There are many fun things to do in the area besides skiing and snow boarding. The town of Ruidoso is close, cute and quaint. Yes, it has a Super Walmart, but you'll be glad for it! It carries inexpensive ski and snow gear in case you forget something (like we did!), and we even bought an inexpensive sled that we used in the on-property woods and at the ski area. We left it in the entry way closet for ourselves and others for next time, but PLEASE leave it there if you use it ; )! BTW... Like us, you WILL get busted for using sleds etc at Sierra Blanca. They will not allow activity other than skiing and snow boarding. (See my separate review on the ski area.) We made a fun day of historical exploration at nearby Ft. Stanton, and we'll visit Lincoln and the state hiking and fishing. If you've been to Sierra Blaca/Alto/Ruidoso before, you know it's no Colorado or Utah, but it's affordable snow for folks like us, and it's *QUICK DRIVING DISTANCE for us Texans! It's clear the owners of this place take pride in their home. It's doesn't feel at all like a rental or vacation property, nor do you feel you're invading someone else's place. If you stay, please heed the owners' very helpful guidelines for maintaining and enjoying the property because we are now emotionally attached, and we WILL be back! In fact, we plan to go during the hot doldrums of summer so we can experience this place during a different season. Geez... So why am I sharing this??? Shh.... It's just for those of us who appreciate! ;-)

    We feel the pictures were a little deceiving as the unit was quite dark. Not much sunlight came in and the lighting from the fixtures was very dim. Enjoyed the deck and the deer showing up mornings and evenings. The furniture was nice and the bed was quite comfortable. Plenty of dishes and cooking supplies. We enjoyed Ruidoso and found plenty of activities to keep us busy. Owner responded to our needs timely; had ants upon arrival and housekeeper came right away. TV reception and Wi-fi needed repairing and that was taken care of during the week.

    We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, and thanks for taking the time to post a review.

    Stayed here July 1-6, 2015. Thank you for a great vacation. Your condo fit our every need and the welcome package was a very nice unexpected bonus. My kids really enjoyed feeding the deer with the corn you left us. We all had a wonderful time in Ruidoso and hope to return again soon. When we do decide to return, we will surely look you up and stay at your condo again if it is available. Thanks again for making our summer vacation a memorable one. Note; This condo is a great value for the price and the owners are super nice. The condo was large, very clean and beautiful, with great mountain scenery. Don't forget to do the exhilarating three stage Zip Line up ski Apache, which is close by and the best ever. It is the highest elevation of any Zip Line in the country.

Everyone had there own bathroom and plenty of room. Not the greatest cell reception, but this is true for anywhere in the mountains.

    Nestled in nature and next to everything

    My husband and I needed a few days to relax and get away from work. We arrived in the evening and the condo was fresh and clean and ready for us to move right in. The beds were comfortable and the towels were soft and plush. Just a few minutes drive from town and nestled in the trees we were close enough to restaurants and entertainment and far enough away that the nights were peaceful and quiet. We heard owls at night and really enjoyed feeding the deer. It was fun to sit on the back deck and enjoy nature. It felt like being in a tree house! One of the first things we noticed was the attention given us by the owner and housekeeper. They were available by phone to answer the few questions we had and we were especially glad of this as we lost the combination to the lock on the front door and had to call for help! We didn’t need the A/C as the climate was quite nice (57 in the am, 71 high) but it was comforting to know it was there in case we needed it. We were also pleasantly surprised to see the many amenities offered by this rental unit. There was a nice meeting room in the main clubhouse which we intend to use for a business meeting (stockholder annual meeting) for our next visit this fall. We would recommend this place to anyone wanting fun and value. Susan M, Austin Texas

    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!

    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.

    Great Place to stay!!!!!!!

    This location is a great place to stay. I stayed during the King of The
    Mountain USSSA Baseball Tournament. This location is in a prefect spot to
    stay. It is very close to the field location and has plenty of wildlife
    running around. The condo is very clean and roomy. I highly recommend this
    place to anyone coming to the Ruidoso area. Owner is very easy to deal with.
