My son and his wife asked us to go to Ruidoso for Christmas . We love to do Christmas with them and the two grandchildren. Ruidoso is one of my favorite places in the summer and it was wonderful at Christmas time. The Crown Point Condos are an older facility we have not previously visited. The view of Sudderth St and and downtown Ruidoso was awesome with all the decorations.
There were four adults and two children so the adults had the bedrooms and the children were given the sofa bed in the living room. As small as it was it was adequate. The arrangement was very good except for my husband who rises early and had nowhere to go without waking someone. We resolved that by his preparing the coffee pot the night before and bringing it to the bedroom where we had our coffee in private early in the mornings. Small price to pay, this was the only discomfort in our accomdations... EXCEPT ..we were on the bottom floor and when people checked into the floor above we would have sworn there was a herd of elephants above us. Our four year old grandson was even frightened by the noise, not having previously been subjected to such noise above him. There apparently is very little insulation between the floors. Fortunately they only stayed two days. A small inconvenience was a lack of wi-fi in the units .
We prepared a full Christmas dinner with Turkey and dressing , ham and the works. The kitchen is stocked with minimal cooking appliances so be aware you may need to bring some with you. It did have everything needed for light meal preparation though only six of all serving dishes so dishes had to be washed after each meal and in between for glasses.
We did not utilize the resort facilities so can't comment on them. The wild life was nice, a big buck visited our area several times.
It snowed on Christmas Eve and we all had an absolutely wonderful time playing the snow. A wondrous White Christmas was had by all.
