Shelter in Place
Slight hiccup on keypad code resolved immediately by phone. Otherwise relaxing place to be if you can't go anywhere due to pandemic which spiraled from warnings to decrees while we were there. We won't forget this one any time soon.
Spring Break Fun
This place was amazing! The photos don't do it justice. The view of the mountains is spectacular! It was nice to have a place that felt like home while on vacation. Our family cannot wait to return!
Thank you for being our guest. Hope you come back soon.
The house and views were wonderful. The house was very clean and stocked with everything we needed. The deck was great. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the hot tub and sitting by the outside fireplace. The area was absolutely beautiful. We will definitely go back!
2nd time to stay here!
We stayed at this property the same time last year. My boys, 22 & 17, loved it so much they don’t want to stay anywhere else and we have to agree. It has all the luxuries of home and then some. Convenient to Ski Apache, shopping and restaurants. The hot tub with an amazing view is the icing on the cake!
Always a gem!!
Hands down our favorite rental!! The views, the setting, the decor, the location, the ease of use, the interior, the comfort!!! This place checks every box. Can't wait to go back!!!
Located on beautiful Rainmakers Golf Club, amazing views from the back deck, live theater at Spencer Theater is within walking distance, casino gambling within 20 minute drive. Excellent restaurants, cozy mountain village atmosphere. Skiing at nearby Ski Apache. Something for everyone.

Why Jim Allmon chose Alto
We have been to over 30 countries around the world but we love the mountains of NM and Colorado the most. We are in a high stress industry so we have always dreamed of having a home in the mountains to go to relieve that stress. We have looked at dozens of houses throughout NM and CO for many years. Ruidoso appealed to us due to it's proximity to Waco, TX where we live, it's great airport for private aircraft, 6 golf courses, live theater, two casinos, horse racing in the summer, skiing in the winter, wine tasting and so much more. This house at first seemed too small for what we wanted but we quickly fell in love with the coziness as well as the amazing views. We believe there are couples like us who just want to get away for a few days or a few weeks to relax and enjoy the mountains. Why stay in a condo in town with no views but a street and a parking lot when you can just soak in the majesty of gods work, smell the pinions, watch the multitude of wild life pass by the back deck as you sip a glass of wine or a hot cup of coffee on a cold winter day? Your stress and tension just melts away with every passing hour.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Mountain views - I just can't talk about it enough. Just amazing. Stars. More than you have ever seen from a city. You can almost see the nebulas. Wildlife everywhere. A challenging golf course all around you. Hiking trails that give even the most fit person a good workout. Comfortable memory foam mattresses with Egyptian cotton linens, top of the line appliances and high speed internet. Wine just tastes better in the mountains next to a warm fire.
