This Little Known Resort In New Mexico Will Be Your New Favorite Summer Destination

Next to New Mexico’s Lincoln Nation Forest lies a gorgeous resort that few people outside the state know about. Inn of the Mountain Gods, which is close to the town of Ruidoso, flies under the radar because it’s in a relatively uninhabited part of New Mexico, on the 463,000 acre Mescalero Apache Indian Reservation. With its tranquil lakefront setting and abundant recreational opportunities, this resort might well become your new favorite summer destination.
