Able to sleep up to 8 people, the Naylor Mountain Retreat can accommodate several couples vacationing together as comfortably as it can a family. And while the hiking trails, slopes, and natural beauty of the Ruidoso area will no doubt keep you happily occupied during your stay, you’ll also find plenty to enjoy at the house itself, including an outdoor hot tub, a pool table, and free WiFi.
Naylor Mountain Retreat is located near the end of a cul-de-sac in Alto, a quiet bedroom community just outside Ruidoso. From the pine-speckled property you can see the Sierra Blanca range. During warmer weather you’ll want to make the most of the views and the fresh mountain air by relaxing on the spacious rear deck. Along with a seating area, the deck includes a grill and a table, complete with sun umbrella, for dining alfresco. If you reel in any trout from Alto Lake, less than 10 minutes away, you can cook it on the grill and then savor it outdoors; the singing of finches and nuthatches will make the ideal background music. Afterward, relax in the backyard’s hot tub. The massaging jets of steamy water will feel so rejuvenating after a day of hiking or horseback riding. And at night, beneath the canopy of stars, a soak can be wonderfully romantic too.
