Beautifully decorated by an Interior Designer, this mountain home is designed with comfort and fun in mind.

Gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, luxury linens on the beds and a big screen TV in the living room where the toasty warm fireplace roars. The decks off the dining /sitting room offer views of local bird life and large deer roaming across the property.

About Linda Weichert

We live in central Texas with two children at home and two children grown and married. My husband practices law and I am an Interior Designer. We have two dogs and live in the country. Our kids run our lives right now with high school sports and many friends.

Linda Weichert purchased this house in 2007

Why Linda Weichert chose Alto

We fell in love with the house because of the pine trees around our house and the fairly flat entrance to the door. So many mountain homes have steep entrances. We especially love the cool summers when we escape from the Texas heat. I am looking froward to spending longer summers in Alto. Playing golf out our back door is an added bonus.

What makes this house unique

We love the smell of the mountain air and the view of the golf course. We watch the birds and wildlife go by throughout the day. Getting in the hot tub when it is cold is something our whole family loves. We also like how life slow down in the Ruidoso area. I always feel relaxed when there.

Very peaceful and charming!

  • 5 of 5

First time in Ruidoso, NM. Kiddos had their first experience doing winter sports. The house has an excellent location and it is very easy to feel at home and enjoy the place. White Sands National Park is 1 -1/2 hour from Ruidoso, but it is great with the kids to slide in white sand. Great experience!

Spacious and clean

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience at this property! We don't golf, but we enjoy going to shows at the Spencer Theatre, which is just 10 minutes away. The large deck has several levels and includes a hot tub, tables, and grill, and this is where we spent most of our time. But the entire place just felt like home. It was clean, but without fussy notes everywhere admonishing us with warnings. It was quiet and relaxing, and we will be staying again. We have found our new home away from home in Ruidoso!

Owner's Response: Linda and I are so pleased you enjoyed our home. The deck is where we spend most of our time when there as well. We have a great record with quality renters and I think the things you have expressed in your comments, particularly feeling like it is a home away from home, are the main reasons why. Please come back soon. Glenn

The property was in an excellent location for skiing and not too far from shopping and hiking. Great decks and hot tub overlooking beautiful golf course and great trees for hanging hammocks. Saw wildlife everyday. House stocked with every amenity we needed. Great layout for two families totaling 8. Highly recommend staying here and THANKS to the owners for sharing their home. We would definitely rent again if we are back in this area.

Cozy home in beautiful Alto

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay here over Spring Break 2016. This cozy home has been updated and is very clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen is supplied with everything we needed. There are multiple decks to sit outside and enjoy the wildlife and the woods. We saw many deer, lots of beautiful birds, and even an elk. We also enjoyed taking walks along the beautiful Alto golf course. The outside of the home has charming street appeal in a neighborhood of other nice homes. It is also located three minutes to Ski Run Road. The owners were very easy to work with and have paid attention to all the details of their home to ensure their visitors will have a comfortable stay. We would definitely recommend this home to our friends and family.
