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 Ruidoso

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.

                                                                  We loved our stay! The house was super comfortable! Only complaint was we didn’t receive the alarm or door lock information and were stuck at the house for a full day before the owners got back to us. It also rained a full day during our stay but both days spent cozied up inside we’re enjoyable because there was still plenty to do at the house. Will definitely be back!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Steve and I are glad you enjoyed Bear Bottoms. I apologize again that you did not receive the original email that was sent on 1/29/2018 from our alarm service (it did show it was sent). I am glad that I was able to get everything straightened out right when I received the email from you. I always try to reply within an hour to inquiries and I was able to handle this after my plane landed.

                                                                  Please consider Bear Bottoms again on future stays in Ruidoso.

                                                                  Geraldine "Gerry" L.

My adult children enjoyed the hot tub after a day of skiing, it felt good on sore muscles. The kitchen was very well stocked with pots, pans and utensils to cook our family meals. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you, Gerry and Robby Lubke and Family.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you for the review and the kind words. Steve and I try to make our vacation home feel like home for those who rent it.

The hot tub, game room and Dish tv made for our time at the house very enjoyable! Definitely recommend to any 6-9 group looking for the perfect house.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

Kay thank you for the Christmas tree and the decorations it was a nice touch. The weather was great and we got some snow as well. The scenery was fantastic and the wildlife was awesome.

                                                                  We saw a elk heard, mule deer and wild horses which allowed us to touch them what an experience for the whole family.

                                                                  Thanks ,
