Certificate of Excellence
The Sitzmark Chalet Inn, Your Home Away From Home, is nestled under the tall pines of Ruidoso, New Mexico. Our charming 17 unit inn offers the distinct personal attention that every traveler desires for a relaxing mountain get-a-way. Our regard to detail and customer service is something that you just can't acquire in a chain lodging atmosphere. We are located one mile south of Mid-Town Ruidoso, close to restaurants, hiking and skiing, historic sites, shopping, and nightlife. Relax on the front lawn during a summer evening on a porch swing while watching the hummingbirds, or unwind after a day on the slopes in our unique outdoor barrel sauna. All guest rooms are spotlessly clean, feature wifi, direct TV, private baths, microwave ovens, refrigerators, coffee makers and Dohm sleep sound machines. Each morning guests are treated to fresh coffee and muffins in our lobby. Ask about our new Romance Package. We'll be celebrating 60 years in 2019! We look forward to welcoming you to our inn!

The owners and staff were so nice. There was a very good steak house within walking distance. Rooms were clean and neat, fresh homemade muffins for breakfast were a treat. Everything we wanted to see and do was close by. We will be back!

If I arrive very late Thursday night, or very early Friday morning, will I be able to check in at that time?
What day is your reservation?

Do you allow pets? We have a well trained miniature schnauzer who would not be left alone in the room for any extended period of time. She would bark when we first left, but would settle down quickly and take a nap. Thx ... Kc
I'm sorry but for insurance reasons we can not accept pets. I know the LaQuinta is pet friendly. Thanks David

Hi thinking of coming for spring break in march ,daughter wants to ski , do u think there will be snow still for that ?
Honestly I can't tell you if there will be snow or not. We have had a late snow this year so it is possible. All I can tell you is the weather here changes every 2 to 3 hrs. Thanks, David

I booked two room Dec 11th, is there normally snow there early December? Also are the roads drivable?
Ski Apache, approximately 18 miles north of Ruidoso, is arguable our annual, most-iffy skiing area in New Mexico, because of its southern-most location. At present, Ski Apache reports 4" of snow base, so you could probably find some show for "playing in" there. You, and others wanting to see some snow, can keep track of the snow depths at New Mexico's ski website. Please let me know if you need anything else and we look forward to seeing you.
