About Dave and Vicki Moffatt

Vicki and I live in Austin Texas and personally renovated a great deal of the interior and rear decking. I'm a Boston native and she's a Texan-so we have an interesting time figuring out each other's accents! I work in the leadership development field and Vicki teaches private voice. Visiting the cabin 3-4 times a year to stay and vacation/work is one of our favorite things to do. Vicki is a highly creative and hard-working renovation 'hobbyist', and this cabin has been her favorite project. Me-I'm the janitor and handyman. We don't have any kids, but we do have three dogs who travel everywhere with us, and one of the reasons we chose this cabin is the fenced yard and deck which allows dogs to have some roaming area.

Dave and Vicki Moffatt purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Dave and Vicki Moffatt chose Cloudcroft

When I first moved out west from Boston I ended up in New Mexico, and used to ride my motorcycle up into Cloudcroft. I promised myself I would one day buy a cabin in the Sacramento Mountains, and finally did it! New Mexico is a special place for us-my Mom, brother and niece live in Las Cruces. Cloudcroft is a perfect getaway for us because it's so small and relatively undeveloped (compared to nearby Ruidoso). Getting up to the mountains is something we plan for and anticipate all year.

What makes this cabin unique

The deck did it for us-looks out at the mountains and a wonderful view of the meadows. It's surrounded and protected by huge pine trees that provide great shade for reading. We just installed a high-efficiency woodstove that just about heats the whole place in the winter. And it's great for dogs, especially the smaller breeds. The deck is up high and the railings are fenced so dogs can't slip through. are close enough to This is a unique cabin-we get lots of repeat vacationers who say they love the place. The kitchen is fully stocked and great for preparing meals-the breakfast nook is a great place to drink coffee and look at the forest. Plus, there's a finished play room below the deck with an electric fireplace, daybed, small pool table, TV and PlayStation-great place to stash the kids or getaway to do some quiet reading. What we love about this place is it's out of town by just 4 miles, hidden on a hillside with a dirt packed road, so it's a super quiet area. Feels like we have it all to ourselves, and there is lots of walking.

Peaceful Getaway Near Cloudcroft

  • 5 of 5
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.

Secluded, scenic with a cottage feel.

  • 4 of 5
Teddy Cloud served as a great base for our New Mexico vacation. Secluded but close to the Lodge at Cloudcroft, White Sands, and Inn of the Mountain God's and not too far of a drive for an overnight stay in Santa Fe. The kitchen was nicely stocked and the wrap around porch was perfect for watching the sun set while enjoying a nice glass of wine. All in all a nice experience.

Cozy cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for a cozy, comfortable cabin with absolutely everything you would need to have a great vacation, you MUST come to Teddy Cloud! The rental process was so easy and the owners are great to work with. A beautiful deck surrounds the cabin and sitting out and watching the wildlife is so relaxing. The hummingbirds (so fun to watch!) are abundant, as are the Stellar's Jays. We also saw some beautiful deer while we were there. The cabin has a very well equipped kitchen which made it so easy to prepare our meals. In addition, a full-sized washer and dryer came in really handy. The town of Cloudcroft is a short drive and a visit to Big Daddy's is a must. Teddy Cloud is an awesome place to stay, and we look forward to returning!

Charming Cabin With Great View

  • 5 of 5
This has fast turned into our favorite cabin in the Cloudcroft area. The cabin decor is charming with a well-stocked kitchen and plenty of room to lounge. The view from the spacious deck is awesome! So many sights to visit/things to do nearby - White Sands, gambling in Ruidoso, the VLA, observatories, museums, hiking, fine dining at the Lodge, and the list goes on. This is our go-to-place in the mountains! Love it -

Breakfast on the deck watching the hummingbirds

  • 5 of 5
location, location!! What a wonderful stay we had at Teddy Cloud, we could not have asked for a better place to spend a long weekend relaxing. Everything is furnished, anything and everything a person could want to cook with is there. We cooked all of our meals and enjoyed the beautiful view from the deck. The cabin is very clean and well maintained. It is so "homey and inviting" nothing like a hotel. Vicki Moffit (owner) was so very helpful during the signing in process, I called her several times and she never made me feel I was a bother. Thank you Vicki for allowing me and all your other guest share in your wonderful home away from home.

Peaceful, Easy Feeling Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
Without a doubt this was one of the best cabins that we've rented in the Cloudcroft area - and, we've stayed in many over the years! Really all we needed was our suitcase and some groceries and we were set -- the kitchen was better equipped than my own; the furnishings were comfortable and very clean (loved the little dining nook); the deck view is gorgeous (as well as perfect for our dog); and it was close to Cloudcroft, Alamogordo, and Ruidoso. The cabin was so cozy and warm, we didn't want to come home. It really was 9,000 feet above stress level! We've already recommended the cabin to several friends and family members. We'll be back for more of that "peaceful, easy feeling" that the cabin radiates. Thanks for a wonderful stay -
