About the property

Secluded 5 Bedroom, 3 bath home with 3 patio's and a gameroom

You will love this spacious 5 bedroom, 3 bath cabin nestled in the hills above the Alto reservoir and with a beautiful view of Sierra Blanca and the valley. We feel secluded, but are only about 1.5 miles to ski run road. This home is perfect for a vacation with 2 to 3 families with the space and the 3 level layout.

Stay in style with a two story living area with fireplace, wood walls, and massive windows above and throughout. Cook like you're at home with stainless steel appliances, granite counters and all the utensils and cooking supplies you'll need.

There are also two good sized bedrooms off of the main level. One has a full bed and the other has a queen.

Downstairs is a fun set up with a bar, pool table, couch and card table. You will also have a great spot for the kids down here with a bunk room that consists of two twin over full bunk beds. There is one other room on this level that has a king bed. You also have a full laundry set up on this level.

Draw straws for whoever gets the master bedroom on the upper level. Enjoy magnificent views from the windows as well as the porch off of the sliding door. You can also warm up by your own fireplace.

We have central heat throughout the home, but do not have central air conditioning. The house normally cools down nicely with the breeze from opening windows and we have fans in all the rooms.

Great for large family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Thanksgiving in this beautiful cabin. It had everything we needed. Fit our large family perfectly, 7 adults and 5 kids. The kids had their own space in the lower level. We had 3 full size pickups, it was a tight fit on the parking pad. The views are beautiful from every direction.

Great Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The house was comfortable and the kids had a lot to do. They loved playing pool and ping pong. The master bedroom was very nice and the bed was comfortable. My daughter suggested having memory foam or something like that on the other beds. The view was beautiful and it was very peaceful. The process to rent the cabin was easy. I would definitely stay there again.
