Not all of our homes have a hot tub so please view the descriptions closely to confirm that the home you've booked has one.

While we do offer free Wi-Fi at most of our properties, we cannot guarantee service nor are we responsible for outages, slow internet speeds and/or mother-nature. We are in a small mountain village that experiences high volumes of people trying to access the internet at one time, thunderstorms and lightning strikes that may knock out the internet, outages due to snow storms or wind storms, or just the occasional outage for maintenance. We highly suggest that if you are needing to work while traveling, to please bring along a hot spot or air card to ensure you're able to access work and/or school while on vacation. *Note: please still call our office if you need assistance in finding the username and password for the network. Again, we are not responsible for outages or the Wi-Fi being down or too slow and will not credit your reservation for this.

Utility outages:
While utilities such as power, water and gas are included in the price of your stay, we cannot guarantee service nor are we responsible for outages due to mother-nature. We are in a small mountain village that experiences high volumes of people trying to access the internet at one time, or may experience power outages due to snow or wind storms, or an occasional water outage due to a main break, etc. We are not responsible for any outages that have to do with maintenance or mother nature. Should be outage go on longer than expected, please contact us and we will do all we can to accommodate.

Winter Weather:
We can not and will not guarantee the drivability of roads in the winter months. The village maintains the roads, but we are the mercy of their crews during snow storms. 4 wheel drive and/or chains are highly advisable when visiting us during the winter. It is your responsibility to know the weather forecast and we advise the purchase of travel insurance for some protection to these matters.

All of our properties are NON-SMOKING properties. Smoking is prohibited inside the units. Smoking may be permitted on the decks or porches outside (with the exception of Charlie Cabin and Hideout Cabin. There is absolutely no smoking in, on or around the premises of those properties). There are times however that city ordinance may not permit smoking even outdoors due to fire danger. Please check with the office to see if such bans are in effect.

Outdoor fires:
Absolutely NO outdoor fires are allowed on or around the properties, including fire pits, campfires, etc. (Some homes have small, gas powered fire pits on the decks that are available for guest use.) Please contact us with questions prior. Should there be evidence of an outdoor fire after your departure, additional charges will be requested via AirBnB. We are a village in the middle of the forest, please respect this request.

Wildlife and Insects:
We welcome you our lovely mountain village! With that in mind, please be aware that we share our beautiful area with all kinds of wildlife and some insects. Please be sure NOT to leave an food outside unattended, especially if you are leaving the property for an extended amount of time or overnight. Not only will trash attract certain animals, but some of the rascals really enjoy getting into the trash and spreading it across the property. Please be mindful of your surroundings if out walking in the early morning or at night and please be sure to keep all windows and doors closed if you are aware from the home for an extended amount of time. (Especially during the summer months!) While it's tempting to approach and animal you may come across, it's not recommended. Also, you may see a spider web or two outside of the home. While our homes are treated for insects monthly and our team takes care in removing spiderwebs, they sometimes tend to reappear almost as soon as they are removed. Spiderwebs and/or the occasional creepy crawly sighting are not something we will consider compensating you for. Again, we share our village(s) with these creatures.

Pets (K9 Friendly):
Several of our properties allow K9s. Be sure that the property you are reserving IS pet friendly. An additional fee of $50.00 (plus tax) will apply per dog, per reservation which will need to be paid at the time of booking or before arrival by contacting us through your AirBnB app or our office. If excessive pet remnants (urine, feces, hair, etc.) is found in the property after departure, a forfeiture of all or part of the Security Deposit will result or extra charges may be requested via AirBnB. Only dogs 50 lbs. and under in weight will be permitted on the property. Please note: Some homes allow up to 3 pets but you must contact us prior to inform us so the fees are added to your reservation accordingly. (If you have more than one pet, contact our office and your request will be considered on a case by case basis). In no event shall pets be permitted outside the unit unless carried or on a leash and under the direct supervision of the owner. If the dog is left in the unit while the guest is away for an extended period of time, it MUST be sequestered in a kennel. Dogs must be properly restrained or sequestered at all times. The owner shall indemnify Property Management Company and hold it harmless against any loss or liability of any kind or character whatsoever arising from or growing out of having any animal in the unit. Pet owners are responsible for cleaning up the property after their pets. Again, our pet friendly homes allow for K9s only, please. All of our homes welcome service animals, but you will need to arrange that with the office ahead of time. The same rules apply regarding pet remnants or damages after a departures for service animals.

Maximum occupancy is strictly enforced and failure to comply with occupancy requirements may result in penalties/fines and loss of reservation.

All trash must be put in secured plastic bags and placed into any of one of the tan dumpsters you will see lining the road in Ruidoso. The tan dumpsters are public property and ok for you to use. If you need to know where to find the nearest dumpster to your unit, please contact us. If trash is left in the property (or outside and the animals have scattered it) a portion of your security deposit may be held. Properties in the Alto Lakes Country Club utilize the facility at 1221 High Mesa Rd for disposal.

Quiet Enjoyment:
You are responsible to observe and respect the quiet enjoyment of neighboring properties while visiting our village. Loud music and voices are to be limited and loud vehicles are prohibited. Our Village Noise Ordinance begins at 10:00 PM every evening. Here in the mountains, sound carries much more than normal, so please be respectful.
