Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

High atop a ridge in Cedar Creek sits La Posada de Ponder, your beautiful vacation getaway with spectacular views. Even your mature dog is welcome at this spacious mountain home. With deer and other wildlife as your neighbors and a residence with all the comforts of home, you’re in for a vacation that you’ll love and remember always.

La Posada de Ponder is a four-bedroom, two-bathroom air-conditioned home that sleeps up to 10 when the sleeper sofa is used. When you visit La Posada de Ponder in winter, we encourage you to come in a four-wheel-drive vehicle or at least with chains for your two-wheel drive cars. Ruidoso is a mountain town and in winter it is often snowy and icy.

The moment you arrive at La Posada de Ponder your first “wow moment” will be when you see your huge deck. This deck is a wonderful place to gather for a meal in the great outdoors, for a dip in the hot tub, or simply to enjoy a cocktail while you breathe in the fresh, pine-scented air. This is living!

Walk across the threshold and you’ll enter a huge great room with stone fireplace that extends to the top of the vaulted, beamed ceiling. Comfortable leather furniture and other armchairs are situated to give a great view of the blazing fire. Huge windows bring the forest’s beauty right into your living room. This inviting room also has a TV with cable and a DVD player. After a day of mountain play, it’s fun to gather your group for a favorite movie. You also have free Wi-Fi within La Posada de Ponder so you can stay in touch with friends back home and check out websites for area attractions.

Of course your group can always go into town for a tasty meal. There are 59 dining options of all varieties in Ruidoso. However, with your beautiful kitchen, you may want to cook up a hearty meal yourself. Stainless steel appliances, gas stove, expansive counter tops and even a great view out the windows while you cook make preparing meals at La Posada de Ponder a pleasure. The grocery is just a five-minute drive away. Pick up your ingredients and you’ll be ready to go. You also have a gas grill out on the deck so you can serve steaks, hamburgers, or anything else your group is hungry to eat.

You can serve your group around the dining room table for six. If additional seats are needed, there are two more seats at the breakfast bar. For a real treat, dine al fresco out on the La Posada de Ponder deck. Everything seems to taste even better in the mountain air and while looking over such a breathtaking view. You also have a bar with stools out on the deck where you can enjoy a cocktail as you watch the sun set over the forest.

After a day of hiking, fishing, golfing, or touring the beautiful sites in and around Ruidoso, you’ll be ready for a good night’s sleep. Relax in the hot tub on the deck for a while to loosen up tired muscles, and then head upstairs to your master suite. This large room has a couch and table and chairs where you can sit and relax. Your king-sized bed gives a good view of your TV. Before you climb into bed, step out on your private deck and take a look at the night sky. Without the lights of the city, you can see millions of stars illuminating the night sky. The master suite also has a dressing area with a vanity featuring dual sinks to make getting ready the next day quick and easy.

The full bathroom that’s upstairs includes a shower that’s shared with the upstairs guest room.

Like the master suite, the upstairs guest bedroom also has a private deck and TV for late night viewing. The queen-sized bed will feel so good after a day of rigorous mountain living. This bedroom contains a gas fireplace with two comfortable armchairs where guests can sit and enjoy the fire and forest view.

The two remaining guest rooms are located on the main floor, each outfitted with a queen-sized bed and ceiling fans. One of these bedrooms includes a TV, couch, and armchair. Any guest will be pleased to claim one of these rooms as a private sanctuary.

La Posada de Ponder also has an in-home washer and dryer so no matter how dirty your family gets, you can easily keep their clothes looking fresh and clean.

Make La Posada de Ponder the site of your next mountain vacation. It’s a great place to create memories with your friends and family. Reserve your preferred dates today!

Pretty

  • 3 of 5

Dishwasher didn't work good. Kitchen sink faucet don't move. No water pressure. Not much area for grandkids to play outside. Small bedroom down stairs mattress was to old and hard. Master bedroom red chairs fall over if you sit in them. Sauna didn't work. Nothing much for kids to do at this place. It was pretty inside.

Reviewer Comments:

It was an amazing home. It was our first holiday away from home and it exceeded our expectation. The home, the views, the close proximity to town and ski resort was amazing. We are definitely coming back next year . The beds need to be updated because they are a little worn and so do the sofa sleepers .
