Sierra Lake Vista is a great vacation destination for a group of 9 or fewer looking for fantastic views, ample outdoor deck space, a game room, and a smattering of unique bedrooms. This mountain home is located in Alto, just a few miles north of Ruidoso. All three stories have covered decks that look down over nearby Alto Lake, which offers fishing, boating, picnic tables, and a well-maintained trail along Eagle Creek. Hikers lucky enough to take this 1-mile trail are rewarded with waterfalls, at the end!
Guests arriving at this property will enjoy covered parking for at least two vehicles. Heading up the 5-6 steps to the front door area, a covered sitting area greets visitors. Just inside the adjacent front door, a wide closet is perfect for jackets, boots, and gear. The entryway immediately opens up into the living room, a great room that also contains a dining area and spills over into the kitchen. The living room has wooden flooring, plush seating in front of a flat-screen TV, and sliding glass doors that lead to the upper deck, which offers outdoor seating and a gas grill.
Progressing through the well-lit living room under the vaulted ceilings, a long dining table has ample room for eight. The adjoining kitchen features modern appliances and a window over the sink offering that same magnificent view. A bedroom with a king-sized bed is also on this top, ground level. This bedroom has a private vanity and shower, a flat-screen TV, a window with a view, a ceiling fan, and a spacious closet. A separate door passes through to a bathroom with a sink and toilet. This bathroom is also accessible from the living room.
Last but not least, the upper floor has a dedicated and handy laundry room with a washer/dryer, shelving, and counter space.
Heading downstairs, guests will find another small living room with a couch, a flat-screen TV, and more sliding glass doors that access the middle deck. Two bedrooms on this entirely carpeted level share a split bathroom. One room features the toilet and sink, and the room directly across from it has another sink and a shower/tub combination. The bedroom on the west side has a king bed and a large, walk-in closet. The other bedroom has a queen bed, and both bedrooms feature ceiling fans, windows with views, closets, and flat-screen TVs.
The lowest floor is one giant game room that also has twin bunk beds that will sleep 4 additional guests. This floor is all about entertainment, with a ping-pong table, a foosball table, plush seating in front of another flat-screen TV, a full-size refrigerator and adjacent sink, and yet another covered deck overlooking Alto Lake.
Sierra Lake Vista lives up to its name, with spectacular views from all three levels. The property suits families and groups who aren’t averse to stairs. This home is located just north of Ruidoso and offers quick access to Ski Apache. Despite having neighbors on either side, the comfortable layout offers privacy among the tall pine trees. Guests who decide to book Sierra Lake Vista won’t be disappointed! Please remember that Ruidoso is a mountain town with snow and icy conditions during the winter. This can affect driving and parking conditions regardless of the property, driveway, or roads.Get the full listing »
