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, Blue Spruce Retreat is the perfect place from which to experience it all. Just a short drive away from this fabulous vacation home, 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.

And then there’s Blue Spruce Retreat itself. This spacious mountain retreat sleeps 8 altogether and features three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, an amazing deck, hot tub, lush forest and mountain views! Sumptuous seating along with a large flat-screen HDTV make the living area a delightful place to spend time with family or friends, whether you’re watching a movie 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.

The living area flows seamlessly into Blue Spruce Retreat’s stylish kitchen, which is separated from the main living area by a wide breakfast bar. This handy area invites you to get in touch with your inner chef with plenty of workspace along the countertops, tiled floor and backsplash, and all the major appliances (including a gas oven). You will also find a Keurig coffee bar located on one of the counters. All the cookware, dinnerware and gadgets you need are here, too.

Just off the kitchen on one side is a dining room with a roomy table perfect for bonding over a family meal or board game, and on the other side is a breakfast nook with a charming view through the bay window. In fact, the view from every part of Spruce Retreat’s spacious deck is truly mesmerizing.

Blue Spruce Retreat’s primary bedroom is a bright, comfortable space with a queen-size bed, dual nightstands with reading lamps, and a fan in the sloped ceiling. There’s a TV for when you’re feeling wakeful, and a chair that invites you to curl up with a good book. The primary bathroom is just steps away and features a large corner soaking tub separate from the spacious shower stall, along with a vanity table and bench. The extra-wide vanity has dual sinks, making getting ready for the day faster and easier. Blue Spruce Retreat’s second bedroom features two full-sized beds, while bedroom number three has two sets of bunk beds for when you’re traveling with the kids. A second full bathroom keeps waiting in line for the shower to a minimum. There is also a convenient half-bath located in the hallway. The laundry room with washer and dryer lets you pack light.

The cabin was beautiful everything we were looking for in a weekend getaway. Everything was very clean, the kitchen had everything we needed, plenty of towels and the hot tub was great. We will definitely be visiting again.
