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 New Mexico

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 property, excellent location, all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend with 4 adults and had plenty of room. The house was awesome and we had a great time. It's about 5 minutes away from the winter park, so that was a bonus.

We had a great time! The condo is great. It had everything we needed. Beds are comfortable, just as everyone else has said. Carolyn was responsive to our questions. The view is hampered by trees, so there isn't much of a view of the mountains, but you do see a lot of deer and other wildlife. Would definitely go again and recommend. Great location too!
