About the property

Condo, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 13)

Perfect for groups or a multi-family getaway. This condo can sleep 13 people in beds, including children, but is limited to a maximum of 12 adults. There are two full size couches available if you needed to sleep 2 additional guests. Gas heat provides consistent warmth in the winter and central AC and the complex’s heated pool make it perfect in the summer.

Our condo offers enough bedrooms, beds and bathrooms that you can maintain some privacy and a great room that can comfortably seat a large number of people for “group time”. This massive room includes a stone gas fireplace, flat screen TV, DVD player, dining space for 15, a fully equipped kitchen, ½ bath and access to a huge deck with Webber gas grill, more seating and a view of the woods, wildlife and mountains you won’t soon forget!

The condo is located perfectly in Ruidoso. It is only ½ mile from midtown so you can easily get to the shopping and restaurants, but it sits up high on the hill so you feel like you are in the middle of the wilderness. It is also conveniently located between the race track, casino’s and ski resort so you are never too far from any of the attractions.

When you are winding down from the day, or would rather not venture out in the cold a complete game room is just down the stairs! Enjoy the pool table, game / poker table, TV, full bathroom and a full bar with ample seating.

Bedroom Descriptions:

On the entry level are 2 full bathrooms and 3 bedrooms - 1 queen, 1 king, and the master bedroom with a king, TV and en suite bathroom.

The lower level (2 levels down from main entry) features 2 more bedrooms and a full bathroom. 1 bedroom has a queen bed and the other is our bunk room with 2 sets of bunks and a twin bed.

Our goal is that this feels like a home away from home for our guests, so we have included everything to make your stay comfortable! The kitchen is stocked with supplies, we have movies, books and games for your use while you stay with us as well as comfy throw blankets and plush bedding.

It will be a one of a kind stay - summer or winter - so what are you waiting for? Make our home your home!

About Ritchie Deffenbaugh

We are a family of 5 from the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. We enjoy sports and traveling and feel so blessed to have the opportunity to share our mountain home with you!

Ritchie Deffenbaugh purchased this condo in 2012

Why Ritchie Deffenbaugh chose Ruidoso

Our original draw to Ruidoso was its proximity to the DFW area (8.5 hr drive time) and the opportunity for both winter and summer fun. What has made us truly fall in love with our new home is the small town feel of Ruidoso, the constant activity of festivals and parades and things to do, the beautiful scenery, and the amazing wildlife that is literally outside of our door each day! Nothing can compare to that feeling of having your morning coffee on the deck, wrapped in a blanket, surrounded by trees and just feeling like you are 'home'. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!

What makes this condo unique

Our most fun vacation memories are spent in places other than hotel rooms -- where we can spread out and feel at home, and ideally where we can invite along friends and share the fun. This condo offered us 2 main benefits we couldn't find elsewhere: 1) enough space to invite 1 or 2 other families to join us, and 2) the game room level that would be fun for the kids during the day but afford us a fun evening in after the kids go to bed!

Amazing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place, proximity to town,, entertainment options (board games, pool table, etc.), and floor plan. Very nicely decorated and clean. One recommendation, please add more cooking pans, especially for large parties. Had to purchase extra pan to meet the size of our group. Definitely would love to rent again. All in our party enjoyed the stay.
