We live perched on a hill in beautiful Alto, NM. Our property overlooks spectacular views of Sierra Blanca & Nogal Peak. A perfect mountain getaway to soak in the hot tub, relax on the deck, keep warm by the fireplace, or bask in the cozy sunroom. We are minutes away from Ski Apache & the White Mountain Wilderness for skiing, hiking, fishing, zip lining, & mountain biking. Close to Ruidoso for shopping, restaurants, horse racing, and casino. Enjoy our organic garden & endless farm fresh eggs!
Enjoy a comfy California King Suite with views of Sierra Blanca & Nogal Peak and extended library for your use. Enjoy a TV in your room with Netflix & other internet capabilities, a DVD player and countless movies to choose from. Includes a private bathroom with everyday amenities. Drink your morning coffee on the private deck after you have soaked in the hot tub. Lounge in the comfy chairs, listen to the soothing fountains, and if you rise early enough you will see wildlife!
There is another room available with a full size bunk bed, AeroBed mattress, and desk area for parties greater than 2. An additional $25/BED/night will be added if you would like to add this room to your stay. This second room is great for a second couple, children, college students, or guests who prefer to have their own bed.

Welcome! I am Jennifer, a mountain girl who was born and raised in Ruidoso, New Mexico. I traveled extensively in college to Europe, Canada, and throughout the U.S. My husband Chris and I got married my senior year of college and after taking a trip across the country for 3 months throughout the west, we decided to settle in Alto, New Mexico. We still travel extensively together. Through all these experiences, we have discovered one of our favorite parts of traveling is meeting new people from all walks of life.
We both run our own businesses in Ruidoso. I am a musician and artist. I play the piano and sing for private events. I also am a custom oil painter specializing in portraits of people, children, dogs, etc. If you have a picture, I can paint anything. Our home is filled with all of my artwork for you to enjoy. My husband Chris is a firearms instructor in Ruidoso teaching Concealed Handgun license classes. He teaches Emergency Medicine to law enforcement, military, and civilians all over the the United States. We are avid skiers, rock climbers, hikers, and pretty much anything outdoors. We have a garden with fresh organic veggies and farm fresh eggs that we would love to share with you.
We are a great team, love life, and strive to live life to the fullest. We work hard so we can play hard. We adore the home we have created and would love to share it with you if your travels bring you to the Ruidoso area!
