Photos and Description of this holiday condo in Ruidoso - #5 Sherwood Forest

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! Please just let us know what you need.

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!

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).

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.

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!

Great place to stay. A clean, we'll appointed, inexpensive place to stay in Ruidoso.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I liked the place very much. It was a good jump off point for our daily activities. Our dog liked being close to the Ruidoso Rio, which is just across the street . It is a very clean and simple place to stay.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I really liked this property. It was very clean and nicely decorated. The owners were extremely helpful and accommodating. Five minutes from town and just a couple of miles from hiking trails. Only negative; it was the only room without a small a/c unit, and I was really glad we brought our own fan. This shouldn't be a problem 90% of the year. Again, we really liked this place, and will try to come back.

Very nice stay, unit was spotless and well equipped. Very good location, close to great bars and restaurants. Pet friendly was a huge plus. Could not believe all the wildlife - thrilling! Will be back for my next trip to Ruidoso.
