I bought this house to stay in while I travel around the southeast part of NM for my job. There is limitless outdoor activites right outside the door. It is a short drive to many nearby cities like Roswell, Carlsbad,and Cloudcroft, Bring your skis, bikes,hiking boots or a good book and enjoy. Warm days and cool nights make it a year round get away.

Sheryl Smolik purchased this cabin in 2010

It is close to the Cedar Creek campground where hiking and biking are excellent. Bonito lake is only a few miles away for fishing, boating, hiking or photography. I love the quaint downtown stores and many restaurants. There is a nice athletic club to swim and work out as well. The ski area is 16 miles away.

Right out the door and down the road you can access the hiking, biking trails down to the campground. I love sitting on the deck and watching the deer in the evening! I can go work in the surrounding cities and be back home for dinner on the deck instead of staying in hotels and eating out.

GREAT WEEK

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time in NM over the Christmas break. The cabin was very clean and surprisingly spacious. There were 5 of us total and the 2 beds with a pull-out bed in the living room worked perfectly. The cabin is located about 5 minutes from Ruidoso and is in a semi-secluded area. Serial (owner) was very responsive and accommodating during our stay. Thanks again for sharing your mountain getaway.

GREAT GIRLS' WEEKEND!

Great girls' weekend!

The house is located in Alpine Village away from the hustle and bustle of town. It is very quiet and peaceful - great for relaxing on the awesome deck with coffee, a glass of wine or hot chocolate. We fed deer from the deck every afternoon and morning. There are two bedrooms with double beds and two couches that convert to beds, so it was perfect for a girls' weekend. The owner was very easy to work with and very responsive.

KIM'S REVIEW

Kim's review
  • 5 of 5
From beginning to end, this experience was fantastic. The owner is super nice and welcoming. She was available for questions from the get go. The cabin is such a perfect spot for a calm, quiet getaway and even though it's about a five minute drive from one of the main roads in Ruidoso, it feels like it's far up in the mountains. We experienced a number of humming birds coming to feed, a group of deer that came up to the deck to see what we were doing and quiet neighbors. The deck is amazing (and large) and we sat out each morning for breakfast and after dinner drinks and took in the scenery. The interior is beautifully decorated and newly updated. The beds were comfortable and rooms are quite cozy. If you have a chance to stay at this beautiful cabin, don't pass it up. Thanks to Sheryl for making it available to others to enjoy, and we will be booking again soon!

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience renting before viewing in person and we couldn't have been more pleased! The house was spotless and welcoming, Comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen, delightful decor (I could go on and on!). The owner was a delight to meet and stayed in contact during our stay to ensure all was going well. It was the best week of rest and relaxation ever. The temps were so pleasantly cool, never needed the ac at all. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the deck watching the Hummingbirds and best of all the deer! I would certainly rate this a TEN stars!! My only regret was that we didn't have the time to stay longer! We will definitely return if the house is available when the opportunity to get away arrives! Many thanks to the owner for her hospitality...!! We would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone.....you won't be disappointed!
