My Happy Place
My Happy Place is sure to be your happy place too. Nestled among towering pines, this 3-bedroom home feels blissfully private and removed from the everyday, yet it’s only minutes from the galleries, shops, and restaurants of downtown Ruidoso. From its large wraparound deck, you can relish the mountain breezes, the singing of hummingbirds, and even the sight of deer, wild turkeys, and elk. Inside you can relax with friends and family among plush furnishings and all sorts of modern luxuries.
The open-plan living, dining, kitchen area, is roomy enough to accommodate the whole gang and then some. The leather sofas and recliners invite you to kick back and watch a movie on the flat-screen TV with cable, surf the web via the free WiFi, or indulge in an afternoon nap. In winter the stone-surround fireplace is sure to be a favorite gathering spot, whether you’re enjoying après-ski drinks or sprawling on the rugs to play Candyland with the kids.
During the warm-weather months, you’ll probably prefer to unwind outdoors. My Happy Place’s deck offers numerous sitting areas where you can sip your morning coffee while watching the sunrise or treat yourself to a late-night snack beneath the mosaic of stars. Just off the deck is perhaps the most luxurious relaxation spot of all: the hot tub. Especially after a day of hiking, mountain biking, or fishing, a soak among its massaging jets of water will feel like heaven.
Alongside the hot tub is a table for dining alfresco, and another dining area is right on the deck, next to the gas grill. When the weather isn’t conducive to grilling or eating outdoors, you’ll find that My Happy Place’s kitchen and indoor dining area more than fits the bill. Equipped with appliances, cookware, tableware, and plenty of counter space, the kitchen has just about everything you need to prepare and enjoy multi-course meals—all you have to supply is food and an appetite! The dining table seats 6, and the breakfast bar, which doubles as a kitchen island, can seat another 4 people.
Two of the 3 bedrooms include a queen-size bed, and the master suite features a king, making My Happy Place as well suited for a trip with friends as it is for a family vacation. The master suite is especially pampering; in addition to its king-size bed and flat-screen TV, it has a private bathroom that includes both a shower and a jetted tub. Talk about the good life! The other bedrooms share the 2nd bathroom, which has a combination shower and tub. When you arrive you’ll find all the beds perfectly made up and plenty of clean towels in both bathrooms, so you can start your vacation with a bath or a nap. You can pack light too, as My Happy Place has its own washer and dryer.
The paved driveway easily fits 3 vehicles (another reason My Happy Place is a great choice if you’re vacationing with other couples). If you’re visiting in winter, those vehicles should have 4-wheel drive or, at the very least, chains, as the roads can be snowy and icy. Then again, if you’re visiting in winter, the snow is probably the main draw. Not only is My Happy Place just 40 minutes from Ski Apache, the country’s southernmost continually operating ski resort, but it’s also less than 15 minutes from Ruidoso Winter Park, where you can snow tube in winter and view the terrain from a zip line year-round. Even closer is Grindstone Lake and Trail System, where you can fish, boat, hike, ride mountain bikes and horses, and play disc golf. And within a 15-minute drive are the Hubbard Museum of the American West and the Inn of the Mountain Gods and Billy the Kid casinos, among other attractions.
