No one can deny that time spent among nature is good for our health. If you're feeling a bit worn down, a quick break at Grindstone Lake may be just what you need.
It is situated in Ruidoso. If you aren't quite familiar with the name, it's 160 miles (257 kilometers) from the state capital of Santa Fe.
If you're not aiming to travel that far from Grindstone Lake, perhaps you'd like to rest your head at one of the 10 hotels that are located within 2 miles (3 kilometers) of the site. The Crown Point Condominiums, a VRI resort and the Hotel Ruidoso - Midtown are a couple of excellent places here, located 1 mile (2 kilometers) and 0.4 miles (0.6 kilometers) away, respectively.
If you would prefer to save a little bit of your hard-earned money for some of the finer things in life, you can spend a night or two at one of the low-cost solutions in the surrounding neighborhoods. Why not choose one of the Village Lodge Suites and the Nob Hill Lodge?
If you're the type of traveler who does quite a bit of their traveling from behind a steaming cup of coffee, you're in luck. Within a short stroll, Dreamcatcher Cafe & Coffee House offers all the drinks and snacks you could possibly need. Or, perhaps you can book a table at Cafe Rio Pizza. It's close by and well-known for serving delicious meals. Why not finish a thoroughly enjoyable day by toasting your traveling companions? Make your way to The Cork and Kettle, just around the corner, and call for a round.
