My place is in MidTown Ruidoso - close to restaurants and dining, family-friendly activities, and nightlife. You’ll love my place because of the views, the location, and the outdoors space. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families with one child and furry friends (pets). Don't be scared because there are no reviews here. I have lots of reviews over on my other listing. People love it here. It's just brand new on airbnb.

The space

This is a classic Mid-town building that has survived the years right in the heart of Mid-town Ruidoso! Don't choose this if you want to be alone in the middle of the woods. Choose this cabin if you want the ultimate in convenience to all the shops, bars and restaurants of Mid-town Ruidoso while being able to go out your back door and play in the river and enjoy the fascinating parade of wildlife going by.

THE BUILDING: I have tried to determine when this cabin was built, but have not yet been successful. I have seen pictures of Ruidoso taken in the 1950s and it was there then! It was originally built as a hotel with 8 small shotgun style rooms. The bedroom was on the river side and the bathrooms were all on the street side. Sometime after that it was remodeled into 4 one bedroom apartments. That’s the configuration it was in when I bought it in 2007. To be truthful, it was in really rough shape then. It has suffered years of neglect. After a $100k remodel it is now a really cool and wonderful place. When you drive up to this building, you can imagine how Ruidoso was in the ‘50s and ‘60s when it became known as “The Playground of the Southwest”. If these walls could talk, oh, the stories they could tell. Check out the cabin next door. It was built in the late 1800s. That’s a wild thought.

When you enter the condo, the living room and the kitchen greet you with lovely colors and a décor that is modern and comfortable. All these finishing’s were completed in 2012. The floor in the living and kitchen area is a beautiful cherry.

The other side of the condo contains the bedroom and bathroom. The bed is a lovely queen and really comfy! The floor in the bedroom is a lovely engineered ash hardwood. In the bathroom it is tile. When bedtime comes, open the window and let the sound of the Rio Ruidoso lull you to sleep.

Location, location, location! walking distance to the great bars and restaurants Ruidoso has to offer. If you're looking to listen to the river with the windows open in the summer, or have a great place to base from to bike or ski or hike this'll have you covered. It's a bottom floor unit, so sometimes can hear the folks upstairs, but didn't bother us. Small but useful kitchen w/ full size oven/range. Wifi was good, and TV w/ cable (w/ music channels)! Owner was superfast responding to communication and even made sure we got a bag back we left in the unit after checkout. Would definitely stay again.

We had a great time here. It was perfect for just the 2 of us, and we really enjoyed being within walking distance to most of downtown Ruidoso. When the windows are open, you can hear the river, which was great! It was pleasant to hang out just outside the apartment and listen/watch the river when we were coming and going.
