Christi and Don's Nuthouse, 5 Bedrooms, Sleeps 10, Pets Welcome, Pool Table
When in Ruidoso, you probably intend to spend most of your time outdoors among the mountains and lakes. Christi and Don’s Nuthouse is so welcoming and convivial. However, you might find yourself not wanting to leave its delights.
Let’s start with the great room—and what a great room it is! Encompassing the living area, a dining space, a kitchen, and a game area, this wide-open room boasts a vaulted ceiling, a gas fireplace, and plenty of large windows looking out onto Ponderosa pines and the mountains. Christi and Don’s Nuthouse sleeps ten people, and as many as three mature pets as well. But even if you have a full house, there’s plenty of room for everyone to kick back in the living area and watch TV or play charades. And wait until you stretch out on those leather sofas… so comfortable! More fun awaits in the game area, where you’ll find a pool table.
The dining table seats 8, and there’s room for four more at the breakfast bar. This bar is a handy place to set up your laptop and surf the web via the free WiFi. It’s also a convenient place to sit and help with the cooking (or to at least keep the cook company!). As for the kitchen of Christi and Don’s Nuthouse, it’s equipped with the full gamut of appliances, cookware, gadgets, and tableware. Whether you’re making breakfast omelets, a multicourse dinner, or late-night margaritas, you’ll find all the accouterments you’ll need.
If you prefer cooking and dining alfresco, head out to the covered deck. It’s furnished with a gas grill and a dining table with chairs, and the view of the mountains is spectacular. What’s more, the yard is fenced in, good news if you’re vacationing with your kids or dogs.
Although the hot tub of Christi and Don’s Nuthouse is indoors, as you luxuriate among the bubbling waters you’ll feel as if you’re out amongst the trees, thanks to the picture windows. At night you can gaze up at the stars through the skylight—what a wonderful way to end an action-packed day!
