Mountain Star

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 19, 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms. Cats, Dogs allowed.

Ruidoso, NM 88345 United States

A chalet perched a top of a ridge where you're amongst the stars! With an elevator to access upper living areas for those with physical limitations. Far enough away yet close to shopping and the night life of Ruidoso, and down the hill and around the bend for great snow skiing. Easily able to accommodate those family gatherings yet has that intimate feel for your romantic getaway. Plenty to do from hiking,enjoying the fresh mountain air, watching wild life, bike riding,cooking (inside or out). After a fun day on the slopes, relax in the hot tub or play a game or two of billiards. Multiple outdoor living spaces to enjoy. Ample parking available as well.

Ruidoso is an alpine mountain community. Expect twisty roads with steep grades. The weather is unpredictable and changes quickly. Elevation can vary between 6000’ to almost 12,000’. Most homes are multi-level with stairs on inclined lots. Expect wildlife to hinder traffic flow. Do not be surprised if the power goes out or when you lose internet or cell phone connection. This is the mountains, and it happens. We encourage guests be prepared with access to chains or 4-wheel drive in winter months for all our properties. This is not the big city. Life is easier and slower paced and more wonderful. This is why we come and why we stay. Relax and enjoy your time in paradise.

    a guest from San Antonio, TX does not recommend this vacation rental.

    The overall experience was disappointing for the amount that we paid. We rented during spring break 2019. The central heating/cooling system does not seem to work... also one of the rooms brought in snow every morning. In another rooms, the blinds were broken and outsiders could see right in for full view. The dishwasher did not work, along with the elevator. The cable/tv are outdated. The pool table is lopsided, with one stick and no chalk, and you have to use 2 cue balls, beside one odd ball is missing. Excessive dog hair in living room area.
    On a positive note, the location is not far from the ski resort/casino. The master bedroom was beautiful, so make sure when you check in your the first family to grab the room!!! Hot Tub was enjoyable.

    Marisa L from Midland, TX recommends this vacation rental

    The house was great there are a few things I would like to point out that I didn’t like about the house. 1st the whole heating system well let’s just say it’s not good. The bottom 2 rooms were extremely hot, but the rest of the house was cold except the master. The master room chimney would keep the room warm. When we were in the downstairs living room it was very cold and same with the upstairs living room. The downstairs restroom had a really bad odor since the day we got there. We didn’t even bother to use that restroom cause it was bad. Upstairs in the kitchen the dishwasher had a horrible odor as well. When we opened it I almost threw up. They want you to leave the dishes in the dishwasher the day you leave, well I didn’t I could not open it.
    The house in general is very nice. The master bedroom was my favorite spot. The view from the top balcony is great.
    I recommend to go to this house when it’s not cold just because of the whole heating system. Also I recommend they add TV’s to the bedrooms. Just an FYI take some Raid with you cause there were lots of ants and daddylong leg spiders.

    It is a beautiful home, with so much space to sleep, the only one thing that I did not like was the staisrs inside the house, they are very narrow. But the whole experiencie was amazing.

    Wylie B from Mustang, OK recommends this vacation rental

    This place is terrific. It accommodated 10 adults very nicely. It is an older place and could use some TLC but overall it is very comfortable(that's the only reason why I give this place 4 instead of 5 stars). Easy access to town for shopping and great restaurants. We had most of our meals at the Star with its very well equipped kitchen. But be aware that it is a smaller kitchen so too many cooks can be a problem. We would stay here again and definitely recommend it to any one looking at staying here.

    a guest from Blanco, TX recommends this vacation rental

    Overall, the house was nice enough. It is an older home, so don’t expect upgrades.
    Pros: fantastic views; quiet neighborhood; not much traffic; ample parking; large bedrooms (master is huge); large closets; ample outside sitting areas; large downstairs sitting area; enough space for 10 to fit comfortably in the sitting/dining area; more than enough TV’s with satellite channels; WiFi worked without glitches;
    Cons: no central a/c; only window units (bedrooms with no windows got hot at night even with fans provided; can’t open doors in bedrooms because there are no screen doors); kitchen prep area is tight even though there is a long counter; small bathrooms with tight shower stalls; a lot of the bulbs were out, especially outside bulbs; light switches are confusing;
    Everything we needed was provided, but as another reviewer posted do pack trash bags and toilet paper. The refrigerator and pantry were completely empty. The oven time had a bulb out so it was hard to see the cooking temperature. The drainage backed up in one of the showers. Ants decided to join us downstairs, so we couldn’t leave any food or drinks near the pool table. Both drainage and ants were reported to management at check out. Manager was very eager to fix the problems before next arrival.
    If you are going to use the elevator, you need to ask for the key.
    Overall, we had a pleasant stay and would recommend the house to friends and family.

    Property was wonderful, quiet, and easy to locate. Had trouble with hot water in master and grill top stove but both worked the next day. Didn't get to grill but there were great family places to eat in town. Would love to see in wintertime. Perhaps a Christmas destination?

    Robert S from Mccloud, OK recommends this vacation rental

    Here is the list of problems that we found with the house during the week that we stayed.

    1. The garbage disposal was broken the first time we used it which a maintenance worker came out and said it wouldn't work the rest of our stay so we were unable to use it. After leaving the rental we was charged for this.

    2. During the visit from the maintenance worker for the sink while he was working on the sink it leaked onto the lower floor onto the pool table so we were unable to use the pool table for the whole day to let it dry out.

    3. The air conditioning would not keep up with the size of the house and there was no air conditioning down stairs when we arrived therefore we had to go buy fans out of pocket and wait for reimbursement. (They did eventually bring a portable air conditioner on Thursday or Friday for the down stairs portion of the house.)

    3. The fireplace in the master bedroom did not work. (Not that we would have used it due to the heat but we checked it out just to check it out.)

    4. The kitchen sink leaked from the handle if turned up to full blast.

    5. The tub handle in the master bedroom leaked when turned on.

    6. The shower in the upstairs bathroom off of the living room had hardly no cold water.

    7. The digital readout on the oven was half out so you were unable to read what the temp was.

    8. We did not have enough toilet paper, paper towels, or dishwasher pods for the 16 people that we had on vacation with us therefore we had to go buy more for the house.

    9. Many of the lights in the house did not work which included all of the lights in the living room to the left of the downstairs main door if you are walking in.

    10. The cold water did not work in the bidet.

    11. The sink in the kitchen was clogged up the first time we used. (This was fixed during the visit from the maintenance worker from number one but still drained slow the rest o

    Rich P from Albuquerque, NM recommends this vacation rental

    We are frequent visitors to Ruidoso (4 or 5 times a year) and this house is by far our favorite that we have ever stayed at. There was plenty of room for my family to spread out and relax while at the same time there were also a few areas that were large enough to accommodate all of us at the same time. And the views from the top balcony were amazing! And Marie from the property company was extremely helpful.
