Welcome to the majestic pines of Ruidoso and the MCM Eleganté Lodge & Suites, formerly The Lodge at Sierra Blanca.

The ultimate retreat for family vacations and couples getaways.

The MCM Family of Hotels is pleased to add the MCM Eleganté Lodge & Suites to our family of hotels.  Escape to four-season recreation, rich heritage and history, breathtaking views and a relaxed atmosphere where memories are made. Known for our Cleanliness, Friendliness and Four-Star Elegance, The MCM Eleganté Lodge & Suites is bathed in warmth where fireplaces, Jacuzzi tubs, cozy patios and decks and spectacular views from every room add opulence to a casual environment. The back deck is home to an inviting firepit, barbeques, tables for dining on your complimentary hot breakfast and access to miles of walking trails. We are located minutes from our outdoor playground – over a million acres of the wilderness of Lincoln National Forest. Exclusive midtown shopping plus an adjoining golf course (The Links at Sierra Blanca) make this an unforgettable escape. When it comes to heritage and history this is Billy the Kid country and home to Fort Stanton, the Mescalero Apache Reservation and the historical town of Lincoln. Come enjoy a little piece of the Wild West and you might leave with one of the famed carved bears inspired by Smokey Bear, another local hero.

We really enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. It was very relaxing after a long day of skiing. I would definitely stay here again!
