About the property

Quiet area with Quick access to mountian life in Ruidoso

Completely redone. Looks brand new with all new appliances. This is a studio condo. It is one room plus a full bathroom.... Like getting a large hotel room but with a kitchen and in a much better area. It is located in the historic Upper Canyon area which is only a 3 minute drive to Mid-Town where all the shopping and restaurants are. It's a 15 minute drive to the Ruidoso Downs Race Track and a 10 minute drive to the Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort and Casino. We have an adjacent recreation room with cozy fireplace seating, a flat screen TV and a great Hot Tub. There's also card/game tables, a smokin' pool table, a small library and a coin laundry. Right across the street is the Ruidoso River. You can hear it from the condo and can see a little of it from the porch. There is a nice walking trail along the river for a short nature or dog walk or a romantic evening stroll. This is a perfect place for a romantic vacation or a fun filled trip! Pets are allowed but we must add a cleaning of $25.00 for up to 2 pets. PLEASE READ THE "TERMS and CONDITIONS" BEFORE BOOKING.

What makes this condo unique

Quiet, out of the way location but close to everything! The crisp and pure mountain air is fabulous and with very few pesky bugs flying around, it's almost too good to be true! Breath deep and take it all in!

Wonderful Place to Stay in Ruidoso

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay and relax in Ruidoso. The area was really quiet. You cannot beat the price of the room either. We could keep our dogs with us too and walk them through the scenic streets.

Our stay was comfortable and relaxing. The condo was so clean and had everything needed to make quick meals and keep items refrigerated. The owner David, is such a nice man and very helpful. Highly recommend staying here. I know we will be back again soon!

Excellent choice!! Very cozy place to go and relax for the weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is the best option if you are looking for a getaway weekend to disconnect from daily routine and just get in touch with nature! It has all you will need to just arrive and relax! The location is very nice as well, very quiet and peaceful at night but also, like 7-10 min away from the main Rd. so it's not that hard to go visit and then go back and enjoy the rest of your night looking at the stars.

We were there with our 2 schnauzers and they also loved it!! Plenty of space for them to not feel trapped and many trees nearby to go walking in the afternoon and enjoy the fresh air.

The owners were so kind and provide us a lot of details on driving directions to access the condo and relevant information regarding safety, amenities and general info for our visit.

We really enjoyed our time there and for sure would go back in the future everytime we want to really have some vacations!

Unexpected delight!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was immaculate centrally located and so many amenities I can't even name them all! We totally enjoyed our stay and would return in a heart beat! One tiny problem … the key sticks, this can be remedied by some silicone spray (I had the same problem at my home).

Owner's Response: Janice K, My profound thanks for taking the time to send this review. I have addressed the door latch issue. No more sticking. Very helpful and you guys were absolutely great. THANK YOU!

Beautiful and clean room

  • 4 of 5

The space was well located in a beautiful street, close to stores and restaurants. The space was clean and with all the amenities that one could possibly need. However, we had the idea (because of the pictures) that the place was located by the river, and it's not, the river is across the street. Also, there is no fence for our dogs to run freely, and it's a little dangerous since the street is super close (not so busy street but still, one needs to be careful). Overall, it was a nice experience.

Owner's Response: Dear Valued Guest, You are exactly right... the river is across the street from the Condo. I guess the word "by" can be interpreted several ways. I have updated the property description to hopefully avoid any further misunderstandings. Your input is appreciated and most welcome!

Ok - but short of expectation

  • 3 of 5

This is a a recently refurbished "motel room" type condo - all new (and very clean) inside, but it does lack a few things - most particularly a place to sit inside (couch/live seat?) .Only place to sit is on bed or one of two dining chairs (one of which is bent so you are sitting at at 2O degree from plumb angle). Outside has a tiny patio with plastic (Wallmart 9.99) chairs that are not comfy for sitting and enjoying evening. Do not expect much privacy if units on either side occupied - especially if neighbors noisy.

Owner's Response: Dear Ray, First, Thank You for taking the time to provide a review. This is our first rating below 4 stars. Naturally, we are very disappointed but do appreciate your input here and your observations in the note you left. We believe the 21 pictures on the web site accurately represent our Condo, both inside and out. The bent dining room chair has been repaired. Loose screws. I'm a little red faced about that. The chairs on the deck have been upgraded to a much more comfortable design. Ray, I honestly don't know what to say about the motel reference. The unit is a Studio Condo with a full kitchen, dining area and bathroom. I do know I have never been to a motel with trees, a river and frequently deer and other wildlife, right outside of the front door. Alas, I would have welcomed the opportunity to address each of your concerns while you were here. But again, Thank you!
