Why Susan Dominy chose Ruidoso
We fell in love with location and character of this property. The house is tucked away in the Upper Canyon on the river with great decks and a path down to the river.

My husband and i loved the place the location was just perfect. The balcony views to the mountains and river where breath taking and the sound of the water flowing down the river was just relaxing. We would love to stay again no doubt about that. Only complains Matresses could be a updated to softer ones and the flimsy front screen door changed other than that it was amazing.
Wonderful place for a retreat!
The location at the end of a road in the Upper Canyon makes it a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the sounds of the river and hummingbirds fighting over the feeders. The view from the three decks is breathtaking and was enhanced by large stands of yellow sunflowers and purple sweet peas along the bank of the river. My son managed to catch (and release) one of the few Rainbow trout in the stream right behind the house. Hiking along the river was great. There are a lot of stairs, but there are also three great bedrooms with baths, plus another area with a sleeper sofa. It was very comfortable and clean. We hope to rent it again sometime in the future!
We spent 10 days and loved every minute. It’s on the end of the street and very quiet, except for the “zoom” of hummingbirds and the sound of the river! We enjoyed coffee out on the decks each morning, then a walk around the Upper Canyon. The kitchen has everything you need, and renters are allowed to leave extra condiments, spices, and coffee for the next visitors. Sleeps plenty with privacy for those who want it.
Relaxation at its best!
This is a very relaxing place to stay. We loved every bit of our stay. We didn’t want to leave. We will definitely stay here again!
An excellent retreat.
The location and house were excellent. At the end of a street and with the hill n trees it seemed one was really secluded. The house was clean. We were able to see and feed mike deer. Using binoculars, we seen an elk on the ridge across the stream. The stream was awesome. You can hear it over the rocks from the house. The water was clear and cold. Tasted good too. Lol. Overall a 9.5 of 10. Thanks.
Beatiful. Spacious. Clean. Accessible. Comfortable.
Amazing!!! We loved every monute of our stay here. Definitely recommend!
