Ruidoso house description

Enjoy the weekends before Christmas for $300 and additional nights for $100 each.
The 'Heart of Ruidoso' is a 3 bedroom, 2 full bath home offering a cozy respite for a family or group of friends and is pet friendly. The three rooms can comfortably sleep up to 9 with additional space for 2 on a queen size air mattress ($25-$50 fee for 1-2 extra guests.) The entire house has been renovated with new laminate, carpet and tile flooring, new appliances in the kitchen and cabinetry + all rooms updated with paint. Tired of eating out? The fully stocked kitchen makes it easy to have a homecooked meal or barbecue on the gas grill. Plenty and plush are the linens in both bathrooms and on all beds. The front covered porch is ideal for drinking coffee in the morning and the backyard offers a larger deck for more privacy. The backyard also boasts a new privacy fence that can provide a safe place for both kids and pets. We have also provided games, puzzles and videos for both child and adult entertainment for those rainy/snowy times or when you just want to stay in for the night!

The convenient central location, in a family neighborhood, gives you the option of walking right into the mid-town shopping district of restaurants and extensive stores. Other attractions of the outdoors, resorts, and shopping the area has to offer are within short driving distances. The Inn of the Mountain Gods is a 10 minute drive, the convention center and 2 golf courses are 10 minutes the other direction and direct access to Sudderth Drive which takes you to the Ruidoso Downs Race Track or to Mechem Drive and Ski Apache.


If this is your first time or the 100th, our hope is that your visit is unique and a memorable one with the addition of your stay in the home that holds a special place in our hearts. Information is available upon request to help you prepare your vacation for the maximum amount of fun, activities and relaxation!

                  About the owner: The 'Heart of Ruidoso' is owned by mother/daughter team, Marcia and Candice Makowski. This is the home that Candice grew up in and renovated in 2006 to rent out on short term basis so that the family could enjoy it also.

                  This home has been in the family since 1978 and my mother hopes to retire here in the future.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The backyard is perfect for cook outs, adding to the living space of the property and yarded for our pets to enjoy. The location makes it convenient to walk to the shopping and dining of mid-town.
