Family reunion location recommendation

I'm in charge of finding a place to hold our next family reunion. My husband and I decided that Ruidoso would be a good place. I've been doing some research here and other places but would like to know if any of you had a place that you would recommend.

We don't have a lot of requirements, just that there is space for the kids to play, kitchens would be nice, some familys will require sleeping accommodations for 6.

1. Re: Family reunion location recommendation

The premier facility in Ruidoso is the Inn of the Mountain Gods resort/casino. I do not believe they have kitchens however. It also offers golf, and fishing on site.

www.innofthemountaingods.com

You would probably be better served by cabins. Some cabin rental businesses in Ruidoso have up to 40 cabins grouped together.Check out this site for a large listing, and pictures.

www.ruidoso.net/vistors/cabins.htm

My experiences with cabin rentals in Ruidoso over the years was with four or less people, and the most recent stay five years ago, so I do not feel qualified to recommend specific places. Check the Ruidoso Forum home page here on T/A, and click on the link, "Ruidoso, Hotels",,,once on that page, click "Specialty Lodging," and it will give you "recent" ratings and reviews for 30 cabin rental/lodge websites. Good hunting!

Ruidoso is beautiful area. Enjoy your reunion!

Note: The Ruidoso cabins link above from TA does not seem to be working. Just type http://www.ruidoso.net/visitors/cabins.htm

in the address space.

Perhaps it might help if you were to tell us how many people in total will be attending the reunion. The visitor's bureau in Ruidoso can also assist you in finding accomodations for your specific "size" needs. Ditto restaurants which can host a large number of diners...perhaps in a side room.

Good luck! :-)

I'd say approximately 30 people. I'm just wanting to find a base where most can reserve a place to stay, some will want to camp out. We won't be going out to eat in mass.
