The lustrous wood floors, sloped ceilings with southwest-style vigas, and rustic touches of Alto Oso’s living area will enchant you almost as much as the breathtaking view through the large windows. Sumptuous seating along with a large flat-screen cable TV make the living area a delightful place to spend time with family or friends, whether you’re watching a movie on the DVD player/VCR after a day of skiing or hiking, surfing the web courtesy of the free Wi-Fi, or just having a chat by the stone fireplace with heavy wood mantel while enjoying a cup of cocoa or a glass of wine.
Thanks to a wide-open floor plan, Alto Osa’s living area flows seamlessly into the dining area, where a round, distressed-wood dining table with four cushioned chairs serves as an ideal spot to enjoy a family-style meal or a lively game of cards. Just a few feet away, a breakfast bar with room for two more separates the kitchen area from the living/dining space, making it ideal for setting out snacks buffet-style.
Alto Oso’s kitchen has everything you need to prepare as simple or lavish a meal as you could wish. From the stainless-steel oven and stove to the refrigerator/freezer and microwave, all the major appliances are at your disposal. Additionally, the stylish wooden drawers and cabinets are well supplied with cookware, dishes, utensils and prep tools. A dishwasher makes post-meal cleanup a breeze, and all the extras – from a toaster to a blender – are there.
The view from Alto Oso’s spacious decks truly is mesmerizing. You’ll love relaxing in the front porch swing while watching the horses in the field beyond or the hummingbirds flitting among the towering ponderosa pines. Out back, a large gas grill is ready for you to whip up your favorite burgers, steaks, and or fresh-caught trout from nearby Alto Lake. An outdoor table and chairs on the back deck also ensure you’ll have at least a few of your meals in the great outdoors during warmer months. It’s also a delightful spot to watch the stars come out!
Full of light and charm, Alto Oso’s primary bedroom is a veritable haven of relaxation that feels like a personal retreat-within-a-retreat! Below a gently swirling ceiling fan, a gorgeous king-sized bed is flanked by two nightstands with reading lamps. A cushioned bench at the food of the bed is a perfect place to sit while you lace up your hiking boots…or lose yourself in a good book! If you’re feeling wakeful, the flat-screen TV on the bureau provides a distraction. A large walk-in closet has room for all of your luggage. Across from a wood desk and chair (great for hopping on your laptop and updating your social media sites courtesy of the free Wi-Fi!), sliding glass doors offer separate access to the great outdoors.
Traveling with the kids or a group of friends? Also Osa can sleep up to three couples! Combining comfort with convenience, both of the two guest bedrooms feature queen-sized beds, cable TVs and ceiling fans. Two full bathrooms with shower/tub combos mean you can get your day started faster, and all towels and bed linens are provided. Plus, a laundry room with washer and dryer negates the need to find a Laundromat (or over pack)!
Outdoor adventures are fun, but they can leave you feeling tired and a bit sore. That’s where Alto Oso’s spa room and indoor hot tub come in handy! Grab a glass of wine and three or four friends at the end of the day and relax among the steamy bubbles and feel your cares melt away.
Perhaps Alto Oso’s best feature, though, is its location. The surrounding area is loaded with opportunities for nature lovers, from skiing at nearby Ski Apache to fishing, hiking, biking, or horseback riding in Alto Lake and Recreation Area.
Just a short drive away, the Inn of the Mountain Gods casino resort offers endless options for entertainment, while Ruidoso Downs Racetrack features horse racing during the summer months. Ruidoso Winter Park offers snow tubing in the winter months and zip-lining year-round. For the golf enthusiast, the Links at Sierra Blanca is just a ten-minute drive away. And less than half an hour away, Fort Stanton-Snowy River Cave National Conservation Area, the Hubbard Museum of the American West, the art galleries and artisan shops of Sudderth Drive, and Grindstone Lake and Trail System offer even more fun diversions.
With something for everyone, Alto Oso is the perfect place to enjoy all New Mexico has to offer…reserve your spot now!
