About Jeff Brown

My name is Jeff. This is my wife Robin and myself halfway up Sierra Blanca mountain January of 2009. It was our first trip to Ruidoso and we had a blast - so much so that we came back with a condo :) We both teach and coach, and live in Flower Mound, Texas

Jeff Brown purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jeff Brown chose Ruidoso

We fell in love with this property as soon as we walked in the door and saw the view out the back deck! We also loved the open floor plan and the proximity to area attractions.

What makes this condo unique

Honestly, it just seems to be the perfect place. It's located in the middle of town right off Mechem. Popular restaurants and hangouts are right next door. Mid-town is within walking distance as well. The view of the Sacramentos is incredible and deer come down next to the condo and relax in the shade several times a week.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for the helpful information that you guys provided prior to our arrival and at the condo. Despite the wind gusts and blowing sand (just what we thought we had left behind in Seminole) we enjoyed ourselves. We have one more game this afternoon. :) Our stay was comfortable with the washer/dryer and short walk to the grocery store for forgotten necessities.

Decent but not great

  • 3 of 5

Pros:

- Nice view from balcony (minus the dumpsters)

- Central location

- Mostly clean (there were a few dead bugs lying around)

Cons:

-The cable didn't work on the TV and the owner never returned our phone calls to fix it, and there were no remotes for other TV in the unit

- The large burner on the kitchen stove was broken

- Torn comforters on the bed

- Dead bugs lying around (at least they were dead)

- Looks much nicer in pictures

- If you stay in the warmer months there is no central air and it gets pretty warm during the day

Shabby, but adequate

  • 3 of 5

First, the good. The condo was clean and had what we needed. Access to restaurants etc was easy.

The bad....this condo is in what seems to be mostly residential, sketchy, rundown units. The view is of a dumpster and Meachem street. During our stay the Wi-Fi was down which was a bummer for our teenage daughter. Overall it wasn't the worst place I have stayed in, but probably will not return.

Cheers to this Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here and had an absolute blast! They made sure we would be able to make ourselves at home in every way (dishes, cleaning supplies, movies, games, grill, etc.). The location also made maneuvering around Ruidoso a breeze. I must also say... The view was beautiful, but their little home is even better! It was just so cozy. We actually had more fun staying in by the fire and playing games than going to the casino.

Inside was clean, spacious and well equipped

  • 3 of 5

This was our first visit to Ruidoso, NM and had no idea what to expect, we located this unit on VRBO and overall pleased. The unit was clean, spacious and well equipped for a rental. A few items were dated and could be repaired or replaced but functional. The owner responded within the hour to answer our questions which were easily rectified. We hope to go back to the area again but plan to stay a little longer to enjoy more of the area.

Quaint Little Condo on Main St.

  • 4 of 5

At first glance, the exterior is a little off-putting but the condo was clean, neat, and homey inside! We enjoyed staying in the spacious rooms and the mountain view from the balcony. There are a handful of restaurants within walking distance. The property is well-located near the main shopping area and a short drive up into the mountains for a hike. I would recommend staying here.

I did not expect the lodge to be an apartment but it was very quiet. Looks can be deceiving.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at The Lodge at the Lookout Manor. It was walking distance to downtown shopping. The apartment was clean and comfortable. It was very quiet and we had a great time.
