3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms with a great kitchen, and unbelievable views
Yes, that view is directly off our back deck!! Picture perfect! Our 2-story home has Spectacular Views of Sierra Blanca, all of the luxuries of home, and the casual ambiance of a mountain home. Our home sits at 7200 ft. above sea level overlooking the City of Ruidoso, and a five minute drive to the heart of the town. Our neighborhood is quiet, residential, and beautiful.
When you enter the house, you enter a large living room with vaulted ceilings, fireplace, a 60” flat screen TV, and very comfortable couch and club chairs. All of our furniture has down wrapped cushions, and you will love the comfort! There is a wet bar attached to the living room with Riedel and Fusion wine glasses and barware. There is also a very special ½ bath upstairs for your convenience.
The kitchen has granite counter-tops, a Jennair stove, Krups coffeemaker, RO water dispenser, and pots and pans that will make you feel at home. Our plates are porcelain, and there are serving pieces, placemats, and cloth napkins for you to enjoy. We have a gas grill on the top deck—ready for the steaks, or for the fish you brought from home or bought at Albertsons or Mario’s.
The back decks offers drop dead views of Sierra Blanca Mountain. We always say we bought the View, and the house came with it! Our home has been built into the side of the mountain, and sits at 40 feet above the ground (4-5 stories). Each floor has decks spanning the width of the house to enjoy the Mountain views and the wildlife below. There is also a deck on the front of our home because in the evening, the wildlife has a tendency to congregate at the front of the house, and we have been known to feed the deer by hand in the early evening while enjoying a glass of wine with friends.
Downstairs are 3 bedrooms. Two of our bedrooms have king beds, and the other bedroom has 2 twin beds. Each bedroom has beautiful doors opening to a covered deck with those Spectacular Sierra Blanca Views! Each bedroom has its own flat screen television and DVR. We offer Cable television in each room. The twin bedroom has a desk, so if you need to work, there is a place to set up your laptop.
We also provide our guests with free WIFI. You can keep up with all of your emails easily from anywhere in the house or on the decks! All of our beds have Peacock Alley Bedding, and down comforters. Our sheets are all 100% Cotton, very soft, and we offer choices of down or foam pillows on each bed.
There are 2 full baths downstairs with black granite countertops, Kohler tubs, toilets and sinks. The flooring and the backsplash in each tub/shower area is a beautiful stone tile. Ladies, there are more than enough washcloths provided for your stay, and the towels are also Peacock Alley.
So, we hope you will come enjoy your stay with us. We have planned all of the details with you in mind, and we look forward to hosting you!

Why Melinda Charbonnet chose Ruidoso
We say we bought the view, and the house came with it. We never get tired of the view of Sierra Blanca, and we love the open concept of the house and the windows and doors. We have remodeled this house with meticulous care. Everything has been thought through and was picked because we loved it. We wanted the house to be a comfortable mountain house, and so every detail into comfort was considered. That is why the furniture has down seating, and the bed has great sheets and pillows. This house is our retreat. We wanted it to be the same for you.
What makes this House unique
The thing I love the most about this house include the great windows upstairs that highlight the treetops of the pines. I love the fireplace; it burns so nicely! We love, love, the views from every room. And, we love how we feel when we are there. It is so peaceful. I love that there are decks on each floor and in the front of the house. So nice to find a place to read. And the bathroom upstairs is a treasure! The handmade tin mirror, the special handmade sink, and the great stippling paint-- I think it is very special. Lastly, the day bed in the Master bedroom is a favorite getaway to read a book or watch a movie for some quiet time.

Great home in Ruidoso!
We really enjoyed our stay this past weekend! The home is very nicely furnished, has ever amenity you can think of, and had gorgeous views. I especially enjoyed the details - extra duvets on every bed, coffee for the first day, wonderful soaps, and great WiFi. The location was great with deer wandering around the neighborhood. Thank you Melinda for a great stay!
Beautiful view, relaxing environment & excellent communication
My family of 5 stayed for Spring Break 2018. 3 kids ages 7,9 &12. This place had plenty of room and the appliances were top notch. Kitchen has everything from spaghetti strainer, to mixing bowls, to pancake griddle to margarita glasses. The ice maker was great and we filled our ice chest every day with plenty leftover ice to spare. Yahtzee & Cranium board games in the closet for kids. My husband is in the mattress indistry and is very picky with beds.....they were all nice and cozy!! The music plug in the kitchen was great to plug directly into my phone to listen to Pandora. Plenty of firewood & starter logs, dish and laundry detergent, even the shower gel was enough for a family of 5. Melinda literally thought of everything to welcome us to include coffee for the first day and local Pistachios. We would highly suggest you book this place. Oh yes....THE VIEW!!!! I wish I could add my personal pics, I actually sent Melinda an email before we booked to ask if the pictures are taken from her deck. She assured me they were, LOL! It's true...this view is the real deal! Thank you Melinda...we can't wait to return.
Beautiful, cozy home with a fabulous view.
This home was even more than we expected. Immaculate home with every amenity you could want and a spectacular view of Sierra Blanca. Loved the separation of family room/kitchen on one floor and bedrooms below. Melinda was in constant contact to be sure everything was as expected and provided local contacts should any issue arise. She had a great listing of shopping and restaurants and current brochures for Ruidoso happenings. I hope we have the chance to stay again!
We enjoyed having you at the house, and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come see us soon! Melinda
A Perfect Weekend With a Perfect View
I have rented different cabins while in Ruidoso, but this one has been my favorite! It has an amazing view of the mountains. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook plus so much more. The bedrooms all have great views of the mountains and have access to the outdoor bottom deck. I think the only bad I would say was that we didn't stay longer!!
Thank you for such a nice review! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at the house. Next time, please plan on staying longer!!! Melinda
Perfect Mountain Home

Thank you for your review, and we enjoyed having you at the house! Please come stay again with us soon!
