Talk about a sweet place to stay! Surrounded by spectacular scenery, Sugar Butter Chalet brings you one step closer to paradise. Combining luxury with ski chalet charm, this peaceful and private two-bedroom, two-bathroom mountain retreat is located right in the middle of an area that's loaded with opportunities for nature lovers, from hitting the slopes 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.

On the outside, Sugar Butter Chalet exudes quaint, rustic charm, but inside is a haven of luxury and modern convenience! With beamed ceilings and hardwood floors throughout and luxurious little touches everywhere, this chalet is anything but rustic. After a day's adventuring, curl up on the comfortable suede leather living room furniture and pop in a DVD to enjoy on the smart cable HDTV, or make your friends jealous by posting amazing photos courtesy of the free Wi-Fi. The gorgeous gourmet kitchen features granite countertops, upgraded appliances (including an extra-large fridge and gas stovetop), and everything you need to whip up anything from a simple snack to a lavish brunch. Pull a stool up to the spacious kitchen island to chat with the cook while enjoying your morning coffee! Or if barbecuing is more your thing, the spacious patio is the perfect place to do it, thanks to a protected gas grill with benches and plenty of seating (including a patio umbrella table) for relaxing and enjoying the wooded view. After dinner (or a busy day hiking or skiing), retire to the hot tub and relax in the steamy bubbles as you count the stars.

With room to sleep six (thanks to the full-size sofa sleeper), Sugar Butter Chalet’s two cozy bedrooms feature every comfort including luxuriously made-up beds (king-size bed in the primary bedroom, a queen-size bed in the secondary room), nightstands with reading lamps and flat-screen HDTVs. Both en suite full bathrooms include tiled showers stalls and are well supplied with fresh towels. You can pack light, too – a washer and dryer are right in the cabin, so you can refresh your wardrobe whenever you like!

With something for everyone, Sugar Butter Chalet is the perfect place to experience everything New Mexico has to offer…reserve your spot today!
