In addition to the front porch, Casa Bien has a covered rear deck spacious enough to encompass both a sitting area and a dining space. The deck looks out over towering Ponderosa pines and rolling foothills toward the mountains, making it an ideal spot for savoring your morning cup of coffee or an evening meal. The 2 ceiling fans will keep you cool on even sultry summer days. There’s a gas grill too, so you can cook as well as dine alfresco. Perhaps the best way to revel in the glorious view, the fresh breezes, and the chirping of hummingbirds during the day and crickets at night, however, is while luxuriating in the deck’s hot tub. Life doesn’t get much better than this!
Casa Bien’s great room is furnished in classic Spanish Colonial style. The button-tufted leather armchairs and the plush sofa are perfectly positioned for kicking back and watching a movie on the flat-screen TV with cable. If you can’t find anything that everyone can agree on, select a movie from the library of discs and pop it into the DVD player. The gas fireplace will make this space especially welcoming on winter evenings. Open one of the games stored on the bookcase, gather around the coffee table or the dining table, and make the most of your family time together. For another entertainment option, head to the garage, where you’ll find a Stiga ping-pong table.
The dining table, whose top features an elegant inlaid motif, can seat up to 8 people; the well-cushioned chairs will encourage you to linger long after you’ve finished dessert and coffee. The open, roomy kitchen is equipped with stainless-steel appliances, cookware, tableware, and a kitchen island with 2 stools where friends can help with meal prep.
Be sure to bring your reel and rod if you’re visiting in summer, however, and your skis in winter. Casa Bien is close to numerous outdoor attractions. Only 10 minutes away is Alto Lake and Recreation Area, where you can fish in the stocked lake and explore the surrounding trails on foot, horseback, or mountain bike. Just as close is Ruidoso Winter Park, where you can snow tube in winter and soar on a zip line year-round. Ski Apache, with a peak of more than 12,000 feet, is only 35 minutes away. If you need a day to recuperate from strenuous exercise, you can drive to the galleries and shops of Sudderth Drive in 15 minutes.
