    Spectacular Panoramic mtn Views From This Majestic 3 Acre Luxury Chalet Retreat

    Romantic chalet in Alto
    Impressive 3 story, 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom boasts stunning views from across the 2,900 sq ft air conditioned home just outside of Ruidoso, NM. Over 3 acres of mountainous property provide privacy and ample space for hiking, biking and walking. Enjoy breathtaking scenes from the large hardwood deck and private master bedroom patio. In addition, a recently added outdoor stone fire pit and recreation area with comfortable seats, oversized outdoor Jenga blocks, footballs, frisbees and games provide hours of relaxation under the tall pines with a backdrop of the Sierra Blanca mountains and Ski Apache. Inside there is immaculate attention to detail with hickory wood floors, vaulted alder ceilings, framed windows, granite counters, custom cabinets and inspiring massive view windows. A large loft on the 3rd floor and an extra den in the lower level provide abundant space for large families with children or a friends & family mountain getaway. Two large 55 inch LED flat screens with premium satellite channels, DVD players and wifi internet access provide indoor entertainment. Poker chips, cards, puzzles, Lincoln Logs, frisbees, footballs and a new foosball table was just added. A moderately steep, very long and winding driveway provide endless smiles in the snow using the provided saucers and sleighs. A Weber stainless steel propane grill on the main deck is ready to use while absorbing the superior sights. Once you arrive, you will find little reason to leave this mountain retreat. Located in Alto, NM, this deluxe paradise is 20 minutes from downtown Ruidoso and 10 minutes from either ski apache or the spencer theatre.

      Best House Ever

      We have stayed here several times. The house is perfect, beautiful views, and we have had deer come up and visit every single time. The owners are so friendly, accommodating, and make sure you feel welcome in their home. Our favorite place to stay when we visit a Ruidoso!!

        I got this rental for an employee for winning a contest. It was super easy communication with the host. The property was perfect as described!

          5/5 Excellent

            Fabulous, start to finish!

            Where it begin?! This beautiful home, set high on a hill with open 180+ degree views to Sierra Blanca from the main living area was perfect for our active multi-generational family of 9, ranging in age from 12-76. Walking in the front door on arrival there was a collective "WOW" as we stood in the great room, taking in views of the mountains as well as our accommodations. The scenery outside the floor-to-ceiling windows is simply spectacular, and the interior is equally impressive: beautifully yet comfortably furnished, and immaculately clean. Wood floors and granite countertops gleamed. The kitchen is so well stocked utensil-wise for cooking, we lacked for nothing. The pantry, amazingly, is equally well stocked--a fact we weren't aware of before making our grocery run. Be sure to check it before you shop! Likewise the bathrooms, from bandaids to shampoo to lotion (much needed in the dry climate) to multiple rolls of toilet paper and plush towels--ours with our initial on them even! (Ha--we share a common surname initial with the owners.) The kids young and old enjoyed the foosball table. There were decks of cards, poker chips, games for the kids and not so young kids. The large flat screen TVs never even got turned on! Though we looked forward to the fire pit and s'mores, it was a bit cold for evening sitting for this group, half of whom had come from FL. Cold didn't hamper the evening star gazing though, with an incredible array of visible stars, and even some shooting stars. Wildlife was plentiful with elk and deer visible daily grazing below us, and shed antlers discovered daily in our hikes from the house. I could go on and on (in fact have), but to sum it up, it was a perfect getaway for our group. As a topper though, one of our group spent his entire career in the hospitality business, and Donald Munoz, the owner, would be tops in that industry. He's friendly, attentive and readily available to answer any questions quickly, as well as offer suggestions on things to do. It's obvious that he genuinely cares about his guests. His written explanations of the operation of everything from fireplace to heating system was spot on and a tremendous help in settling in comfortably. We all awoke the morning after our departure sad not to be in "our" house still, looking out at "our" mountains. It was a terrific week and could not have been a better getaway for our Christmas get-together!
