About Carolyn

We love the mountains, casino's, golf courses, hiking, horseraces, restaurants, galleries & shops. Wildlife here has sparked a photography hobby. Family and friends enjoy this condo annually. Seeing the wild horses on the property this year was fantastic. There are a few deer, elk & wild horse pics in the condo that were taken on or near the condo property.

Carolyn purchased this condo in 2010

Why Carolyn chose Alto

The views driving up 48 are beautiful. We like being 10 min. north of shops on Sudderth & love the wildlife on this property & the fact there is a pool & clubhouse & tennis court for activities nearby. Peaceful and serene.

What makes this condo unique

Location: This condo is 1/2 mile from Ski Run Road, which leads you to Ski Apache, and Winter Park Tubing. There is an abundance of wildlife. (be sure to drive or walk the grounds early am or at dusk to see elk, deer & if you are real lucky the wild horses) Hottub on deck is great for star gazing. Grilling on the deck & relaxing after 18 holes of golf is fun. Condo has a pool & clubhouse. Beautiful 6 mile drive from shops, with the best views of Ski Apache coming up the mountain.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a fabulous vacation. The condo was wonderful. Best of both words..relaxing in the condo, soaking in the sun and scenery on the desk, and gazing at the deer and full moon. And there is so much to do in the area; great shopping, Flying J, authentic chuck wagon dinner, horse back riding, gambling, and horse races. Super road trips to Cloudcroft, and White Sands. This is just the tip of the iceberg. I plan to come back again and again.

Great Condo.

Good location and easy to get to. Nice amenities and plenty of bedrooms for large families. The private hot tub was a great bonus. We really enjoyed our stay.

Calm & Quiet

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Morning Deer. The condo was big enough that everyone had their own room, which is why we chose it. There were other condos in the complex that were rented out as well, but we didn't have any issues with noise. We did have some trouble completing all of the checkout instructions because the necessary supplies weren't provided. There was also some minor maintenance that needed to be done, but overall the stay was enjoyable.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was great! This rental was wonderful! Very clean, comfortable, & beautifully decorated home. We enjoyed the private hot tub! The high light of our stay was the wildlife! We got to hand feed several deer in the mornings and evenings. That was an awesome experience! The location is very quiet and peaceful! Would definitely recommend this rental to everyone!
