No white knuckle roads or driveways to get to this retreat and there is an abundance of paved parking. Dogs are welcome but there is no fencing. Excellent WiFi and DirecTV. Plenty of room for the kids to run around outside without falling down a cliff. Five minutes to the exit for Ski Apache and 10-15 min to downtown Ruidoso.
Ruidoso is an alpine mountain community. Expect twisty roads with steep grades. The weather is unpredictable and changes quickly. Elevation can vary between 6000’ to almost 12,000’. Most homes are multi-level with stairs on inclined lots. Expect wildlife to hinder traffic flow. Do not be surprised if the power goes out or when you lose internet or cell phone connection. This is the mountains, and it happens. We encourage guests be prepared with access to chains or 4-wheel drive in winter months for all our properties. This is not the big city. Life is easier and slower paced and more wonderful. This is why we come and why we stay. Relax and enjoy your time in paradise.Get the full listing »
