About Joe & Judy Christian
We love Ruidoso, and consider it our second home! Our first home is in Oklahoma, and we love to get away to the coolness and solitude of Upper Canyon. Joe first visited Ruidoso with his family in the early '50s, and Judy made her first trip sometime in the '70s.
Joe & Judy Christian purchased this House in 2005
Why Joe & Judy Christian chose Ruidoso
We bought our first home in Ruidoso in 1996. We were out driving around Ruidoso one day and ended up at a lot with a For Sale sign high in the hills above Upper Canyon. When we climbed the hill and saw the view, we knew we had to build here. Judy and I sat down with an architect in front of his computer and designed this home ourselves. It was completed in 2005.
What makes this House unique
The home backs up to the national forest, and is visited daily by deer and turkey. An occasional bear and elk will come by. It's very secluded, but only minutes from shopping, casinos, and skiing.

Spacious home in the mountains.
Beautiful, clean cabin with great views and lots of wildlife to watch. Although the cable and internet worked perfectly, the kids spent most of their time on the deck that looks out onto National Forest land. They were not disappointed as they saw deer, fox, turkey, raccoon, and many different bird species. The home was very clean well kept. Mr. Christian checked in on us and was a pleasure to talk to.
Outstanding beginning to end
Room with a View
This property was very nice and really clean. We enjoyed the back porch views and seeing the deer, turkeys, and a fox. The house had everything we could possibly need. It is a little tricky to get to, but worth it!
Beautiful property in a beautiful quiet location. Perfectly setup and organized for our visit. We were fortunate to see deer, turkey and even a gray fox, not to mention the 100's of hummingbirds at the back porch. We will definitely return.
This is our 4th time staying at this property and, as always, we didn’t want to leave. The wildlife is always fun to watch and the mountains are picturesque. Ready for our next trip!
As our second stay at this wonderful home, my family felt like we were coming home! We feel so comfortable in this cabin. Everybody has their own space, the kitchen is excellent to cook in (and we did a lot of cooking), and the back balcony is perfect for sitting and watching wildlife and listening to the birds. I would definitely recommend this property for your family vacation. Joe and Judy are excellent hosts!!!
