                    Our family of four spent five nights at this condo. It was the first time we had used Vacation Rentals by Owners. The owner and I communicated through several emails and phone calls. He was always prompt and helpful in responding to me. The price for this condo is very reasonable, especially considering the amenities that you get in return. We found the neighbors to be quiet and friendly. Twice we had a herd of deer graze in the nearby property which was wonderful to see. The surrounding area made for beautiful morning walks. Based on our experience, we recommend this condo!

                    I found this property while looking for a place to go for a birthday weekend for my mother. This was place was a home run! The location is amazing, there is a grocery store about a block away, and you can easily walk to the main street if you want to do some shopping. Great rooms, they were large enough to accommodate 6 adults. Having the washer/dryer available is a great option because you just never know if you might need to use it. Patio was great, an amazing place to start your morning or end your evening. You can tell the place is taken care of really well, great value for the money, if you aren't considering this place as an option, you are only cheating yourself! The price is so affordable, it left us plenty of money to take to the casinos. The location is perfect for everything, dining, shopping, hiking, everything. I really can't say enough good things about this place, just get it, you won't be sorry!

                    I had never been to Ruidoso before this trip. It is a great town and The Lodge at Lookout Manor is in a great location. It was a family trip, 2 adults, 2 kids. We enjoyed the board games at the house and it was great to be able to make a few meals in the kitchen. It was very, very cold the days we were there, and the condo was warm and cozy, especially with the wood burning fire place! I would definitely recommend this condo for families!

                    Our family of 5, parents with 3 twenty-something kids had a great Christmas while staying here. The condo is just as described with plenty of room for 5 adults. The kitchen is stocked with lots of amenities and the "Welcome" gift bag was very nice. We appreciated the firewood provided and the Dish DVR so we could record movies and shows and watch them later. A great location and a great price!

                    This is our second time to stay at the condo, but our first during the winter. The condo is centrally located with easy access to many shops, restaurants, and grocery stores. We spent two days skiing at Ski Apache. Jeff and Robin have made sure that you enjoy all the amenities of home. The condo was very spacious and clean. We were able to enjoy the fire at night while playing family board games or watching movies. We also ate many of our meals together at the condo. We will definitely stay again!

                    We brought our 4 young adult children to the mountains for the holidays. Not enough snow to ski but we really enjoyed cooking, playing games, watching movies, and shopping. The condo was really clean and had everything we needed for a great family time together. Communication from the owner was super prompt and informative. Will stay again!

                    Jeff and Robin are easy to work with. Jeff is quick to respond to questions and was flexible when we had to make a last minute date change. Their condo is well located with restaurants and grocery stores a short walk away. The tourist area is close by also-but not too close. The condo was just as described-comfy beds, good internet and wifi ,and 2 big flat screen TV's for the occassional rainy day. We found it to be a good choice for our month long visit. Thanks Jeff and Robin!

                    We were pleasantly surprised at the interior of this property. When we drove up it wasn't very impressive, but when we got inside we were so pleased. The location is perfect for anything in the Ruidoso area. The pictures were exactly how the property looked. Everything was so clean and fresh. There was even a computer so we could get any info that we needed. The location is perfect and the owners have thought of so many things to make a vacation more pleasant. The beds were very comfortable and the TV's were amazing. One night the lightbulb was burned out on the front porch. I emailed Jeff and he had it replaced before we got back from the races. Amazing!!!! We came from Texas to get out of the heat, but we really enjoyed the racetrack. We would suggest that you make reservations at the Jockey Club. The view from the 3rd level is so good and the valet parking is the only way to go. We also went to the Inn of the Mountain Gods. It has been rennovated and the Casino is really nice. There is a really neat guide in the condo that the owners have put together that is really helpful.....try the barbeque place across the street....delicious! We will stay here again. Thanks.....

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: My name is Jeff. This is my wife Robin and myself halfway up Sierra Blanca mountain January of 2009. It was our first trip to Ruidoso and we had a blast - so much so that we came back with a condo :) We both teach and coach, and live in Flower Mound, Texas

                  Why the Owner Chose Ruidoso:
                  We fell in love with this property as soon as we walked in the door and saw the view out the back deck! We also loved the open floor plan and the proximity to area attractions.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Honestly, it just seems to be the perfect place. It's located in the middle of town right off Mechem. Popular restaurants and hangouts are right next door. Mid-town is within walking distance as well. The view of the Sacramentos is incredible and deer come down next to the condo and relax in the shade several times a week.
