Property description

Come on up and enjoy the view of Sierra Blanca and surrounding peaks. The Sierra Vista Heights Cabin is located on the top of a mountain ridge on a cul-de-sac next to the Lincoln National Forest, giving it a secluded feel, yet it is just minutes from the Ruidoso shops and only 17 miles from Ski Apache. Perfect for one or two couples, or a small family. Enjoy a meal or your morning coffee on the deck or watch the sun set behind Sierra Blanca. Shopping in the quaint Ruidoso shops is just 4-5 minutes away by car. The Cabin is a great place to just relax and enjoy the view from the deck!

Inside, the cabin has two living areas with paneling and wood trim throughout. The large living room has a wood burning stove, sofa, the main dining table and two day beds. The adjoining den has two rocker/recliners, a small sofa, flat screen with cable TV service, movie channels, and a DVD player with stereo/surround sound! Families enjoy this layout -- the adults can chat around the dinner table (in the living room) or on the deck while the kids play games or watch TV or a movie in the den.

Bedrooms: The large master bedroom with king-size bed has a picture window with views of Sierra Blanca and a door to the deck. The cozy second bedroom with a queen bed has built-in closets and drawers, and cable TV with movie channels. The kids' size third bedroom has a double bed with built-in closets and cabinets that kids enjoy putting their toys in. Please note that the two back bedrooms, bath, and den are in a quaint mobile home with high-quality wall and ceiling paneling and built-ins! Note also that the way the rooms are arranged you need to walk through the kids' bedroom (or the master) to access the second bedroom. (Please see video tour for more interior pictures.)

If you're looking for a fancy condo or 'upscale' house please select another listing. The Sierra Vista Heights Cabin is a clean, well-maintained, and tobacco-free mountain-top cabin that's 5 feet from the Lincoln National Forest yet minutes from the Ruidoso shops and 17 miles from Ski Apache. If your looking for a mountain cabin for a price that's little more than a hotel, you've found your vacation home!

Notes: During winter months, chains or 4-WD is recommended and may be necessary to access the Cabin if the roads are snow covered or icy! During the summer, given the very dry climate during much of the hot weather, we have opted for evaporative cooling.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We live in Lubbock, TX and started coming to Ruidoso about 20 years ago for the skiing! We liked Ruidoso so much we bought the cabin 15 years ago. I worked weekends for the Ski Apache Ski School for a number of years then focused on teaching my kids to ski. My kids were on Ruidoso Sierra Blanca Ski Team for three years (we now train with the Santa Fe Ski Team, so the Cabin is available for rental during the winter season). We'd like to share our love of the mountains with you!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Sierra Vista Heights cabin is perfect for one or two couples or a small family. On a cul-de-sac and bordering on the Lincoln National Forest, it feels like you're away from it all, but you're only a short ride to the charming shops in the village of Ruidoso. The view from the deck includes Sierra Blanca, the top of the Ski Apache's Apache Bowl, and surrounding peaks.
