Ruidoso house 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.
