Aspen Creek Condo is nestled in Carrizo Canyon, less than one mile from Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort and Casino. The property is uniquely bordered by Reservation and National Forest lands. In fact, one can hike the piney ridges of Lincoln National Forest by simply stepping out the front door. These remote lands also serve as a wildlife refuge, where Mule Deer, Elk, Turkey, and Black Bear are frequently seen from the condominium.
Beautiful Carrizo Creek runs just a few feet below its balcony. One can hear the tranquil sound of 'babbling' water from the living room sofa. Young and old, alike, enjoy dropping bread crumbs from the balcony to the resident ducks congregating on the creek bank below.
The views are of steep canyon slopes blanketed with timber. Residents can expect mountain breezes to flow through the canyon bringing with them the fragrance of the many Pinion Pines abundant to the property. Aspen Creek Condo derives its name from the two aspen trees that extend from the creek bank and grace its balcony.
Its location is also close to down-town shopping, three championship golf courses, art galleries, horseback riding, fine dining, museums, fishing, skiing, hunting, horse races, swimming, theaters, miniature golf, and an amusement park for the kids.
Even though we have stayed as many as five adults, the condo is perfect for couples and small families. Its decor is a touch of Native American with many amenities not found in hotel accommodations. The facility is very modern and includes new hardwood floors, all new appliances, new counter tops, wood burning fireplace, sofa bed, bunk beds, and a queen bed with quality mattress. Strong efforts are made to assure the unit is clean and comfortable. The grounds are well kept, and the building's exterior has recently been remodeled with adobe. An enjoyable stay can be expected.
One of the most unique features of the condo is its easy access to hiking. Just a few hundred feet from the front door is the beginning of Lincoln National Forest's Saw Mill Canyon Hiking Trail. This trail is clearly marked, well maintained and offers gentle walking conditions as far as mountain trails are concerned. You can literally be in deep pine forest in minutes. From Saw Mill Canyon Trail I have seen Elk, Bear, Mule Deer, and Turkey. It is really a neat feature of the condo.

We are the Harrisons. My name is Rhett. My wife, Tessa, and I have a six year old son, Rob. We are from Texas. As a child, my parents took me to Ruidoso for mini-vacations. Over the years it grew on me as a convenient place to ski. Later, I realized Ruidoso was great for all seasons. In fact, our favorite times are Spring and Fall.
We love Ruidoso because of its beauty and variety. There is an abundance of activities in the area. I, personally, am the outdoor type and enjoy just being in the mountains. My wife shares the same interests, and Rob is just old enough to start enjoying the Condo. He likes tossing pinecones in the creek and chasing them as they float away(Naturally, with our supervision)
We started renting our condo about 6 years ago and have met some wonderful people that have become our friends. We are the easiest people to work with, and we have a flexible 'one-on-one' approach with all guests. A considerable amount of our business derives from repeat customers. You will find that we are honest and sincere individuals that lead our lives by Christian principles. We treat people by the same standard as we prefer to be treated. I do not want to misrepresent the unit in any manner. We feel it is nice, and many of our quests will agree. We strive to make our unit the essential element of a cost effective vacation for our patrons. I have complete confidence in saying,' You get a lot for your money with us.' The location is excellent.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2005
We purchased our unit because we feel the location is the best in Ruidoso. It is close to everything. 'Especially, close to the Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort and Casino.' The property itself is so unique. A creek 30' below our balcony, wildlife, resident ducks, tall pines, and both the reservation and national forest borders the property. Heck, we have a hiking trail 150' from our front door accessing thousands of acres in Lincoln Nation Forest. If you need additional information just pick up the phone and call. We would love to be further assistance.
What a wonderful experience. The condo was all that was described. It's convienently located close to everything and quite relaxing. We saw lots of wildlife each day and enjoyed the view of the creek from the balcony. We would love to stay here again!
Rented this condo again as we enjoyed our stay the last time. Just as I remember it, comfortable, accomodating, everything worked just fine. Close to the shops & the casino. Was just a pleasure weekend trip this time & enjoyed it fully. I still highly recommend this condo as it is just very convenient to everything. Owners are very easy to work with.
The owners care. You can tell that they care by there love of the area. Yes they have had issues with housekeeping staff, on arrival we had a few problems but one phone call and maintanence was taken care of promptly. I know they have taken great strides to get good help, especially since they live out of town. It must be hard to have to put your faith and trust in staff when you can't inspect the property. I recommend anyone having an issue to simply call the owners. They were very concerned and helpful with our issues. I would love to stay again! The kitchen, while small is ample to be able to cook simple meals which is just perfect because who wants to cook huge messy meals on vacation! The bed was comfortable. Yes it is upstairs, but I didn't have an issue with this as we found it to be very quiet. We loved sitting on the balcony and having our morning coffee. I appreciate the prices these wonderful owners offer. I know with having had 2 job losses over the last year and several other financial burdens, we were still able to afford to come to our much beloved Ruidoso due to the owners hospitality and fair pricing. If you want mega luxury and room for a family to stretch out then this might not fit your needs. A family of 4 should feel very cozy. Besides you are in the most beautiful place i can think of, who stays INDOORS anyway?? We ate, slept and were very comfortable for our 25th anniversary. I was so happy to share our 25th anniversary in your lovely condo! Thanks so much :) the Batemans from Fort Worth TX
We rented the condo in Aug. 2012 for 1 wk. Upon arrival condo had not been
cleaned and linens were dirty. We called and were transferred to another unit
w/0 kitchen for 1 night.We were told that we would get some kind of refund for our inconvenience. Even after cleaning, there were still hairs on the floor and bedspread was soiled as were pillow shams. Did not receive anything,even after request upon check out. Plumbing problems exist as well as refrg.drips water onto food. It is an upstairs unit which was not disclosed. I
would think again before renting this unit.Furnishings o.k. but bunk bed
squeaks every time you move.
Another great stay at the Aspen. We have enjoyed this condo for several years in October and look forward to more good times there! Thanks to the Harrison family for providing this home-away-from-home!
Clean, comfortable accommodations. Owners furnish updated area info for us to know what they like and any changes since our last visit. Don't know how they do it, but they even make it snow each time we visit!!!!!
This Condo was perfect! I had some business to take care of in Ruidoso & this is located very close to everything. The owners were wonderful to work with as my business took a little longer than expected & I was able to extend my stay with no problem & at the same rate. Great location near the casino & shops, clean, very well laid out floor plan, Owners were always available by phone & the condo accommodated all our needs. Perfect for a nice getaway. Enjoyed listening to the creek from the balcony. I would definitely stay there again & recommend it highly.
