Private Vacation Rental

The Casita at Tierra del Alma

Our petite farm style casita (approx. 180 sq. ft) sleeps 2 people and boasts a custom build interior with brand new everything. Super cozy and comfy. Situated on 18 acres with horses, wildlife, and hiking trails, it’s perfect for quiet getaways, artistic exhales, travelers passing through or for taking in the many attractions nearby. A perfect place for a recharge.
The area is full of diversity. We are within half an hour from our quaint mountain town of Ruidoso, Old Lincoln’s historic sites and home to Billy the Kid, gorgeous hiking spots, petroglyphs, wine tasting, apple & cherry picking, oh my!

Or simply stay on the property to revive and restore.

What guests say

Thank you for allowing us, no, for giving us the privilege to spend time on your slice of heaven even if it was only for a little bit. It’s rare that we get to escape city life and have stars as our ceiling. Your casita is so comfy. Your horses and dogs were so welcoming. We wish you the best with everything. And we hope that we can come back soon!

Dear Melissa, Thank you so much for hosting us. We feel relaxed and connected from our stay. The casita was perfect for getting away. What a beautiful retreat you have! Seems like you thought of everything one could need, all the small touches brought smiles. We both enjoyed the nook during the day, it was perfect for reading and drawing. We also enjoyed the wildlife; we counted 5 different kinds of birds. Your fur babies were the best part! It was truly magical to spend time with your herd. I had a lot of fun particularly with Roo, silly girl has my heart. Thank you 100x. We would love to come back in the future.

An absolute lovely place to stay. So remote and charming. A wonderful place to disconnect and recharge. Nothing can compare to the charm of listening to the wind in the hills at sunset, paired with the singing of a mockingbird. A wonderful change to the monotony of everyday.

Love from Clovis, NM
