Property description

We offer a 3000 sf home fully furnished and decorated for a relaxing mountain experience. The home is large enough for family reunions, shared friend vacations and small group retreats, or just a single family that wants room to spread out. Rates depend on final confirmed occupancy. Our home is located at an elevation of 7450 ft in the gated Alto Lakes Golf & Country Club, 10 miles North of downtown Ruidoso . 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 sleeps 10 easily. We have an additional 2500 sf of outside deck area on three levels with spectacular views of Sierra Blanca peak and frequent sightings of wildlife. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, disposal, stove, dishwasher, utensils, cookware, and a breakfast bar. Other features include a family dining table (sits 8), vaulted greatroom and a separate downstairs media/gameroom with full wet-bar for entertaining.


PAYMENTS

We accept direct personal check or PayPal payments for reservation deposits and rental payments. VRBO also provides convenient payment by credit card through their 'Book Now' program. If you pay by personal check, please mail well in advance for receipt a minimum 30 days before arrival. All payments through PayPay or VRBO have an added small fee by these companies usually around 3 to 4%. Any charged fees will be deducted from the security deposit refund amount following the stay. If you want to avoid fees, please pay by personal check. All quoted rental rates are net of fees.

A $150 fully refundable personal check or PayPal payment (or VRBO credit card charge) will hold a reservation up to 30 days prior to arrival date. This reservation deposit will be converted to a security deposit once your reservation is finalized and confirmed, and will be refunded back to you after housekeeping releases our home following your stay. A completed and signed Rental Application is required with your final payment.

CLEANING/HOUSEKEEPING FEE

A $125 cleaning fee will be due at the time your reservation is finalized and confirmed. It is refunded only if you don’t stay. The fee covers a professional housekeeping service to clean home and change the linens after you depart. It’s a one time charge.

REFUND POLICY

NON-SEASONAL/SUMMER/SKI SEASON (Dec 1 to Mar 30 except holidays)

100% refund of reservation deposit if cancelled before 30 days of arrival date. Cancellations after this date will be 100% non-refundable unless the home is re-rented for these dates.

The area is rich in western historical lore - the Lincoln County Wars - Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett. Ruidoso offers unlimited year-around opportunities for recreation in the Lincoln National Forest including managed hiking trails, horseback riding, mountain biking, rock climbing. There are three alpine public golf courses, scenic byways, horseracing (Ruidoso Downs), casino gambling (Inn of The Mountain Gods - Mescalero Apache
