Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Very beautiful surroundings. Watching the deer feed. Very relaxing place. Got snowed in, but Ms. Romanelli was very accomodating and a very nice lady. Would stay there again. Recommend.

It was ok

  • 3 of 5

I think it was ok. It was really outdated. We had no shovel to use to clear the driveway so we had a hard time getting out without getting stuck. The master bed was really hard, almost like sleeping on a rock. Taking out the trash was a nightmare. You have specific instructions and certain times to throw away trash. Leaving at 6am and the trash area is locked but they do have an emergency area to throw it away but you are only allowed 1 bag. It was really close to everything and that was a plus. We looked at the grill and it was filthy. For the most part - it was a descent place to stay. I would consider they replace the cue balls as one was missing and the pool sticks b/c they are so old and useless we were unable to play pool.

  • 3 of 5

When we arrived all doors were unlocked, the place was clean but it needed light bulbs as several were out. I would have been great to have a shovel to remove some of the snow/ice from the driveway as well. The pool table was missing cue balls and the sticks were so worn out, they should have been replaced a long time ago. The master bedroom was a great size but I would definitely replace that bathroom door (just my opinion). It needs updating but it is really close to everything! That was the best part of the house.

Relaxing and peaceful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, plenty of room and we loved the open floor plan. The scenery on the way to the house and from the porch where beautiful. The house was just a quick drive to town. We will definitely come back!

Great Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

I had a wonderful time staying at this property. The owners were very quick to approve changes in our stay before we got there. When we arrived, it was perfection. I loved watching out the window as the sun rose over the mountains. We saw deer, rabbits and foxes off the deck which was a perfect place to enjoy morning coffee or afternoon beverages. The location is perfect for short trips outside of Ruidoso as well as getting to town. I would recommend this property to adults or to those with kids.
