Escape to the Sierra Blanca Mountains for a family or friend reunion in the woods. Alto Family Escape can accommodate up to eight guests and puts you close to everything you want to do and see in the mountains. Alto Family Escape is just one mile from the turnoff to Ski Apache and just a 10-minute drive to golfing, hiking, fishing, and dining in Ruidoso.

When you walk through the front door, you’ll enter the Alto Family Escape’s great room that encompasses the living, dining, and kitchen areas. The open floor plan allows conversation and fun to flow freely, creating a cohesive reunion for all. There are three fireplaces within Alto Family Escape including one in the main living area. Gather your group around to watch the TV with cable. You also have a DVD player in case you want to host a movie night some evening.

Just beyond your main living area and visible through large windows is the upper-level deck that overlooks the forest. There’s a table and chairs out on this deck along with a gas grill. It’s fun to dine outdoors in the fresh mountain air.

Also within your great room is your dining table for six and also your kitchen. You’ll find everything you need to prepare and serve your group in this well-equipped kitchen. If you need more than six eats for dinner, you can set two additional guests up at the handy breakfast bar.

Downstairs at Alto Family Escape is your game room where you’ll find a fireplace, pool table, other games, a TV, and access to the lower deck where you’ll find the hot tub. It’s so much fun to gather in this hot tub after a day of golf or skiing to relive your day’s adventures.

The lower level is also where you’ll find your washer and dryer. You can pack light when you come to Alto Family Escape knowing you can always wash clothes without interrupting your fun.

Whatever you do during your day in the mountains, when evening comes you’ll be so happy to settle into your primary bedroom. Your king-sized bed feels like a million bucks and you also have a fireplace, TV with DVD player, and a comfy over-stuffed armchair where you can sit and read if you want. You could spend hours just relishing the comforts found in this warm, inviting room.

Your primary bathroom includes a walk-in shower, dual sink vanity, and a Jacuzzi bath. Before you know it, you’ll be out on the deck enjoying your first cup of coffee and listening to the birds sing.

The view is fantastic, other than some cobwebs, house seemed clean, there are a few things that need to be fixed and company is aware, we were told hot tub wasn’t working the day we checked in. They did give us a credit for that. We had 3 families and plenty of space. Kitchen was very well equipped.

We were very happy with the rental. It was very clean, kitchen was very well stocked for cooking. Toybox and toys were a very nice touch in the game room (my grandson loved it!). We enjoyed the pool table and hot tub and loved that the property was close to hiking trails and fishing! It was our first time here at this cabin, and we will be back!

This was our first year staying in this property. We were very happy with the cabin. It was very clean upon arrival, kitchen was very well stocked with cooking essentials and then some... The location was nice, close to hiking trails and fishing. The cabin fit 6 adults and 1 three year old very comfortably. My grandson enjoyed the toy box in the game room and the games, it was a nice surprise to find some toys for him there, while the adults enjoyed the pool table. We had a very nice time and will be back!
