Blue Lake Lodge, 7 Bedrooms, Sleeps 18, Pet Friendly, Hot Tub, Views
Escape to a Blue Lake Lodge, a spacious cabin with a guesthouse that sets on 10+ secluded acres next to the Lincoln National Forest. Don’t forget your pets, because they are welcome too! Blue Lake Lodge is on the northeast side of Ruidoso, close enough to town for easy access, but far enough away that your vacation getaway seems truly private. Best of all, you have breathtaking views of Sierra Blanca Peak.
Blue Lake Lodge is a seven-bedroom, six-bathroom, air-conditioned dream cabin that can sleep 18 comfortably. It’s perfect for a family reunion in the mountains. Whatever time of year you visit, we encourage you to come in a high profile, four-wheel-drive vehicle. The last half-mile of Forest Road 120A is gravel with a steep pitch leading to the cabin. Once you arrive at Blue Lake Lodge, you’ll find plenty of parking for your group out front.
When you walk inside Blue Lake Lodge, the beauty of the home’s interior will amaze you. Vaulted and beamed ceilings are complemented by a stone fireplace and log walls. You’ll want to toss your bags down and settle into the comfortable couch and loveseat. The Southwestern décor is so cozy and through your large windows and glass doors, you have a view of the deck and forest beyond. Blue Lake Lodge has a flat-screen TV with cable and a DVD player in the living room. Gather your group to watch a favorite movie. There’s also free Wi-Fi within the home that makes it so convenient to send photos to friends.
You’ll spend many a pleasant hour enjoying the sights, sounds, and pine scent of the mountains from your expansive deck. Even better, walk about 50 feet out into the front yard to find a private hot tub with a large overlook deck where you have spectacular forest and mountain views. It feels so great to let the soothing waters loosen tight muscles as you breathe in the crisp mountain air. This is living!
One thing you’ll notice in the mountains: you and your guests will have hearty appetites. Whether it’s all the exercise and activity or just the altitude when mealtime arrives your gang will be ready to gobble down whatever you can provide. Fortunately, you have a dream kitchen at hand with massive gas stove, a full complement of appliances, cookware, dishes, glassware, and utensils. Gather ingredients in a Ruidoso market and whip up your favorite dishes with ease. You have a gas grill out on the upper deck in case you want to cook up some burgers or steaks.
You can serve your crew around the large, circular dining room table. With windows facing the forest on two walls, you’ll feel like nature is an extra guest at your table. Before you sit down for dinner, head out onto your large deck to watch the sun set over the mountains as you enjoy an evening cocktail. You may see a deer or some chipmunks scurry past on their way to their forest homes.
The main house at Blue Lake Lodge includes five bedrooms and five bathrooms. Go upstairs to find the master bedroom and two guest rooms. Downstairs are two additional guest bedrooms, plus a handy extra kitchen, and gathering area with leather couch, TV, and a wood-burning fireplace. Just like the upper level, the lower living area offers beautiful views of the forest and mountains.
The master suite includes a king-sized bed and a master bathroom with glass block shower and large vanity that will make getting ready a true pleasure each day.
It is such an appreciated convenience for each of the bedrooms in the main house to have a private bathroom. There’s no waiting around for a turn in the shower.
Blue Lake Lodge has its own laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer and soaking sink. No matter how dirty your family’s clothes get hiking, skiing, or riding horses, you’ll be able to keep them in clean attire throughout your stay.
About 50 yards from the main house is the guesthouse. It has its own cozy living room with TV and comfortable furniture, a full kitchen, bathroom, and two comfortable bedrooms.
One of the bedrooms is outfitted with a queen-sized bed and the other includes two sets of bunk beds to sleep four. This second guesthouse bedroom is the ideal place to put up any kids traveling with you to the mountains. They’ll have a ball in this room with a great view of the forest out large windows.
Bring your family or friends to the New Mexico mountains and experience the forest’s beauty as only Ruidoso can deliver it. Book your stay at Blue Lake Lodge today! Please remember that Ruidoso is a mountain town with snow and icy conditions during the winter. This can affect driving and parking conditions regardless of the property, driveway, or roads. 4x4 or chains and sometimes both may be required during winter months to access your home.
