We had a great and relaxing time here. I love your homey cabin - the colors, the decor, all the unique knobs on the cabinets, books, DVDs, and games. (Plus more ... grill, microwave, wood-burning stove, gas stove for cooking...)
I highly recommend a shop called, "The Tunnel Stop Gallery". It has art made by local artists as well as books by local authors. The prices are reasonable and the items are very unique - not the usual tourist type gift items.
We enjoyed the shops in Cloudcroft and sampled red and green chili wine. We enjoyed going to the Bluff Springs waterfall; Margarita Monday at The Lodge (haunted by Rebecca); Ruidoso and the drive to Ski Apache; White Sands (and sliding down the sand dunes). Everywhere we went, the scenery was beautiful.
We spent evenings watching old movies by the wood stove. The deck has an awesome view of the stars. We enjoyed the quiet and peacefulness at this cabin.
