Overview

About the property

Perfect size home for up to 10 guests. Close to all that Ruidoso has to offer.

Bear Bottoms gives you the best of both worlds. A Country Club setting that gives you a different perspective of Country Club living.

Bear Bottoms is in Alto Lakes Country Club. This exclusive neighborhood has its share of Deer and Elk, and it is very common to see guests at the house daily, not to mention the wild horses when you enter the neighborhood. Bear Bottoms rustic exterior gives you a surprise when you walk through the door. Because, this home comes with everything you would ever want or need from a vacation rental. We have carefully decorated each room to make sure Bear Bottoms meets everyone's idea of the perfect vacation home. The master Suite has a private entrance to the outside deck. You might just want to take a late night dip in the hot tub.

Bear Bottoms is close to all that Ruidoso has to offer. The entrance of Ski Apache is less than five minutes away from Alto Lakes Country Club for winter and summer adventures. The drive up the the mountain is 12 miles from the entrance which is located down by the Shell station. So why not ski or zip line while visiting. Bonita river is great for hiking, it is an adventure in itself. Shopping is not only plentiful. But, the shopping district has that old town atmosphere, that is greatly missing in the big cities. Furthermore, if you are feeling lucky the Casino's and horse racing may make your luck reality.

When returning to Bear Bottoms after an adventurous day. Drift away back in time, drink a cup of coffee while rocking on the front porch. Or you may choose to relax on the back deck in the heated hot tub overlooking a beautiful scenic view with the Sierra Blanca Mountains close by. The Gas Grill is perfect for making steaks marinated with your favorite seasoning.

But, for your ultimate enjoyment, step down into the game room that features our baseball hero's from the past, a pool table, foosball, flat screen, chess, bar, and a wide selection of movies.

Pets are allowed with our approval (max weight limit 20 1bs). $125.00 non-refundable pet fee. We encourage guests to be prepared with access to chains or 4-wheel Drive during the winter months.

About Steve and Kay.

We are just a couple of ordinary people. We love adventure and we love Ruidoso. Our children are all grown and married enjoying their careers, while retirement is close for us.

Steve and Kay. purchased this house in 2013

Why Steve and Kay. chose New Mexico

When we looked for a home in the mountains. We knew it had to have a certain look. The rustic exterior, the modern interior, and the perfect game room was exactly what we wanted.

What makes this house unique

The mornings are just surreal and you just don't want them to end.

Excellent location, great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property is located just a mile or two from Ski Run Road leading to ski apache. I took my 5 kids (who had never been skiing before) and they loved this place! Plenty of space, hot tub and game room were amazing. The kids already want to go back. Beautiful, scenic view from back deck. We spent alot of time outside, but the inside was just as cozy and comfortable. Owner is very prompt to respond and very helpful. Thank you Steve and Kay!

Couldn't ask for more!

Wonderful! This was the perfect place for our family vacation. Quiet and away from town, but not too far. We loved the game room and the deck and hot tub were perfect for coffee in the mornings and unwinding at night. This home has everything you would need! All you need is to bring your food and your family/friends 😊� we loved seeing all of the deer that frequent the area as well. Thanks so much for maintaining such a nice home and sharing it with others. We will definitely look into staying there again.

Beautiful property! Will definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

This home was clean and had just about everything you could want for a get away. We enjoyed the beautiful drive to the home, walking around the area, the hot tub, the game room, and the comfy beds. We saw deer, and we even saw elk on a drive we took near the house. We had a great time and would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to vacation in Ruidoso.
