Property description

Come and enjoy the colorful foliage in the mountains of Southeastern New Mexico. Weekends are $350 and a full week is $750. This includes cleaning fees and lodging taxes. Extra guests and pet would apply if there are a total of 10 or 11 guests and/or any of your furry friends join (max of 2 dogs or 3 if small in size). If you are interested in saving fees charged by VRBO and paying via check or cashiers check- contact me directly.

The 'Heart of Ruidoso' is a 3 bedroom, 2 full bath home offering a cozy respite for a family or group of friends and is pet friendly. The three rooms can comfortably sleep up to 9 with additional space for 2 on a queen size air mattress ($25-$50 fee for 1-2 extra guests.) The entire house has been renovated in the last 6-8 years with new laminate, carpet and tile flooring. The appliances have been replaced and maintained in the kitchen and cabinetry + all rooms updated with paint. We strive to keep a clean, working and comfortable home and maintain, replace and refresh as needed. Please let us know if something has escaped our attention and we will get right on it!

Tired of eating out? The fully stocked kitchen makes it easy to have a homecooked meal or barbecue on the gas grill. Plenty and plush are the linens in both bathrooms and on all beds. The front covered porch is ideal for drinking coffee in the morning and the backyard offers a larger deck for more privacy. The backyard also boasts a privacy fence that can provide a safe place for both kids and pets (up to 3 small or 2 medium/large dogs allowed with a one time pet rent fee.) We have provided games, puzzles and videos for both child and adult entertainment for those rainy/snowy times or when you just want to stay in for the night!

The convenient central location, in a family neighborhood, gives you the option of walking right into the mid-town shopping district of restaurants and extensive stores. Wingfield Park, Grindstone Reservoir's trails or the Ruidoso Athletic Club are within blocks for some exercise in the crisp mountain air. Other attractions of the outdoors, resorts, and shopping the area has to offer are within short driving distances. The Inn of the Mountain Gods is a 10 minute drive, the convention center and 2 golf courses are 10 minutes the other direction and direct access to Sudderth Drive which takes you to the Ruidoso Downs Race Track or to Mechem Drive and Ski Apache.


If this is your first time or the 100th, our hope is that your visit is unique and a memorable one with the addition of your stay in the home that holds a special place in our hearts. Information is available upon request to help you prepare your vacation for the maximum amount of fun, activities and relaxation!
