3 Beds 2.5 Baths Sleeps 8 Yes Hot Tub
"Tiger by the Tail" is named after the movie that was filmed in the home and the surrounding areas of Ruidoso in 1970. **Pool fee will be removed/reimbursed during winter months!**  Travel back in time as soon as you walk into the front gate of this amazing 2,740 sq. ft., 3 bedroom/ 2.5 bath  home! You'll immediately notice the gorgeous open, southwestern style patio that wraps around the front of the home and opens up into a fantastic stone courtyard that houses the private and refreshing lap pool! (This pool was featured a few times in the film.) The entire courtyard is within a privacy fence and dotted with beautiful plants and vegetation native to New Mexico; along with ample seating to relax in. Use the large BBQ grill to cook up a meal for all! Take an early morning dip in the lap pool or enjoy the stars at night in the peaceful courtyard. (The pool is only accessible from May 15th until Oct. 15th and will be locked during the off season.) The Casita with a Queen sized bed, sleeper sofa, full bathroom and it's own AC unit is a separate mother-in-law style room off the main home and has direct access to the courtyard (it is attached to the main home but has it's own entry.) Separating the Casita and the main home is a laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer! Entering the main house, you're welcomed with unique high vaulted ceilings and an open spaced living area full of natural light, a large sofa for relaxing, a large screen television, and a grand view from the many windows throughout the home; this area too has it's own AC unit! The home is beautifully decorated in a modern nautical theme throughout. Have a nice meal in the dining area that seats 8 comfortably which is right next to the kitchen. The large, well equipped kitchen will definitely give that retro vibe with a modern flair! There is a gas stove, separate oven, microwave, refrigerator, pantry, and is well equipped with all the cookware you'll need. Check out the small breakfast nook area with high vaulted ceilings, a table that seats 4 and direct access to the courtyard. Opposite wing of the house are the master suite and guest bedroom. Master suite has a brand new King sized bed, cozy seating area with a gas fireplace, it's own AC split unit. A private patio and backyard with incredible views can be accessed from this room. The backyard leads to a completely fenced in gazebo and dog run for your fur friend(s). The guest bathroom with modern fixtures, an oversized sunken bathtub, unique walk in shower, with a Jack and Jill vanity separates the Master suite and the guest bedroom (both rooms share the bathroom but have lockable doors). In the guest bedroom you'll find a beautiful four-poster Queen sized bed, TV, large walk in closet and private access to the courtyard. The continuation of the nautical theme in the guest room, ties the whole home together. Tiger by the Tail is the ultimate home for rest, relaxation and a little bit of vintage fun! 2 dog max. Brand new hot tub as of Oct. 2023! Brand new pool table that converts to a ping pong table as of June 2024!
