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.

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 primary 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 primary suite includes a king-sized bed and a primary 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.

Both of the bedrooms is outfitted with a queen-sized bed. 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.

We loved having this great big home for our family. We all had our own bedroom and bathroom and our kids (ages 10-19) loved having their own space in the guest cabin. The only recommendations I would give is- fix the air conditioning in the guest cabin. Also, the little things go a long way and don\'t cost the homeowner much. For example: More dishes and glasses, spices, cooking oils, coffee, shampoos, conditioners, shaving cream, razors etc. We have stayed in many VRBO\'s and some of our favorites have been the ones that offer the simple items but they go very far and are very much noticed. We had a house in Florida that offered an Italian "kuerig\"" with a huge selection of coffee and travel pack loaded with all the bathroom essentials- again very simple and inexpensive

Our stay was from Dec. 20, 2017-Dec. 27, 2017. The Lodge was perfect for our family of 12. Each family/couple had their own bedroom/bath at the main house. The additional cabin near the main house was perfect for one of our children and family which had the same amenities as well. This mountain top lodge has the most beautiful view that God created for us and everyone else who stayed here to see. We were blessed & fortunate to have snow fall the day after we arrived. Our grand & great grandchildren had so much fun, making snowballs, snow boarding and even attempting to make a snowman. The only issue/issues we had were minor, but a little TLC when help make this gem shine even more. We submitted our concern the day of our departure to the main office at 1103 Mechem Dr. in Ruidoso, NM. We wish to thank the staff, Jodi & others for making our reservation easy to process.
