About owner/property manager

We are 'flat-landers' from Lubbock; we have loved Ruidoso ever since we were kids. This is our 3rd rental here and we have learned what our guests want most. This is a very important thing for us; we want to provide a place that we would be happy to stay at ourselves.

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2017

Why owner/property manager chose Ruidoso

It has everything you desire for a great family vacation or getaway with friends. Large areas to gather together, plus private areas to unwind. It's great to have friends and family be able to stay together at the same place; the Avalon House allows for this.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic views; it is located high on a mesa which make it easy to take a walk. It looks down on the village with big views of Sierra Blanca, valleys of thick pines, Grindstone Lake and much more.

Absolutely Awesome.

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous home. Overwhelmingly comfortable for my family of 14. Beautiful views. The experience of seeing a herd of deers and elks. We were not a slight bit disappointed on our entire experience. Sunrises in the mornings to sunsets in the evenings over the snow covered mountain tops. Only wish we had more time. Thank you from the Lopez Family

Beautiful view, deer around the house daily. I would definitely recommend. Only bad thing is check out time is too early.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Jorge. 11am is pretty much the standard check out time over there. You have to keep that time for the cleaning service. They have multiple houses and not a lot of flexibility. We are, sometimes, able to move the check-in time up, which we did for you, so it is discouraging that we we're penalized a star. Please come back soon, we'll try to get the perfect rating we set out for. Terry

The best cabin I’ve ever stayed in while visiting Ruidoso!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved this Ruidoso cabin! We enjoyed seeing Elk, Deer, and turkeys every morning while sitting out on the patio deck, drinking coffee! This cabin is very spacious, clean, and has a warm comfortable home feeling to it. We all agreed that for our next family gathering in Ruidoso NM, we want to stay in The Ultimate Family Getaway!

We will not be staying anywhere else from now on in ruidoso for a large group !

  • 5 of 5

We have such a wonderful relaxing time ! We had people from ages 2-72 ,we all had a blast! The hot tub was nice , the game room was very entertaining for the men to play pool. The tv’s were a nice touch in the bedrooms , for the ones with children to keep them happy until others woke up . Plenty of dishes , pots , pans,crockpots, and silverware if you choose to cook . We did a lot of cooking with a group of 20 , it’s much most cost effective ! We can’t wait to plan our next trip to ruidoso . Wild turkey and other wild life were all around . The deer eat right out of your hand. They like deer corn ,but we brought strawberries ,or save your banana pealings after you eat your banana on the drive up . They really like that stuff . Lots of peace and quite here . We enjoyed the two fireplaces as well . Two bathroom have very large tubs , so I didn’t have to share mine !! (Usually I do ) 2 bedrooms on the main level which was nice for my Daddy who is 72 . One room above garage with queen and twin for a little one . Two large rooms on 3rd level one with king and twin for little one , the other room on that same level had 2 queen but also an other futon in the hall way. One room on the bottom level a full bed and twin as well . Which was handy being located right next to the game room . As you can see , I can’t say enough about this amazing home . You won’t regret for one second picking this Vrbo !!!
