    Advertised as an air conditioned property. It only has one small wall unit that barely cools one room. Sleeping was miserable because bedrooms were hot and mattresses were old and worn. Floors in kitchen felt like spots were about to fall through. Pictures of property way oversell it. It’s jus an old house that needs some major upkeep. Wouldn’t recommend it at all. We left full day early just to find something more comfortable.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Kenneth, thanks for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay. After reading your comments, the homeowner wanted to share the following:
    -"The mattresses in our property are less than three years old and have had limited use, primarily due to our home being a weekend destination. Therefore, they are in good condition.
    -Ruidoso is a mountain town, and it's common for homes in the area to have limited or no full air-conditioning (HVAC) systems. We have not received any prior complaints from guests regarding temperature concerns, and we would have been happy to address these concerns had we been made aware of them.
    -The hottest day during your stay was 84°F, but our property generally runs approximately 3°F cooler due to its location in the valley and the natural shade provided. Our main areas are equipped with a wall unit designed for 1200 square feet, ensuring comfort in common areas.
    -The creaking you may have experienced is due to the nature of our mountain home, which is built on pier and beam foundations. This is consistent with the construction style of homes in the mountainous regions, and our kitchen floor is structurally sound.
    Once again, we appreciate your feedback and strive to continually enhance the quality of our accommodations based on guest experiences."

  • Nice place to stay


    Beautiful setting in the mountains. Very quiet neighborhood. Bedrooms were large with comfortable beds. Plenty of seating in the living room. Smart TVs in each room were great for the kids. All the conveniences you’d need for a stay. We had wild horses deer and elk come through our yard. The deck could use TLC. We would definitely stay there again.
