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

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.

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.

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 -

Cosy cabin with great views

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay last summer! It was a perfect escape from the Texas heat. When we weren't hiking in the Lincoln National Forest, we were relaxing on the large deck, reading and watching the storms come in over the mountains. Since the cabin is located on a hill in the trees, we especially enjoyed watching the birds and even saw an elk walk by early one morning. Although the cabin sits above a fairly busy road and there is some vehicle noise, it did not detract from our enjoyment of the deck.
Our greyhound came with us and it was great to have a fenced-in area right off the deck for her to be off-leash.
The cabin was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals.
We highly recommend a stay here!

Ideal Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Teddy Cloud.

I really appreciated having WIFI. It was great to be able to take about an hour a day to keep up with emails at work. So, that is a great plus.

Secondly, the fenced yard for the dogs was wonderful. I have never been able to just get up in the morning, walk outside, open a gate, have the dogs do their business and come back into the house. I always had to get up very early, leash them and take them outside and walk around with them.

The home was well maintained. Everything worked great and was in top notch running order.

The other thing that would draw me back to your home for a stay is the wildlife (family of deer) in the area and those spectacular views from your balcony! I have never had a view like that from a home in Cloudcroft in all my 20 something years of coming there. It was so wonderful to be able to go out onto the balcony and just sit in the sun and enjoy that beautiful blue sky with those fluffy white clouds passing by and the beautiful evergreen trees around the house.

Apparently, we had just missed the big heat wave in Cloudcroft which was the week before we came. I realize there are not as many hot days in Cloudcroft as there are cold days. We did find your fans and it is great that you have those available for the warmer days of the summer.

We frequented Sleepy Grass park which was relatively close by and actually saw a mountain lion from very far away. I didn't get a picture. You know how illusive the wildlife can be. We went in the middle of the day to the park and then in the evening close to dark. One evening we saw a herd of elk and yes, indeed, we did hear a male bugling. I had never heard that previously. That was a wonderful park and so close to your house.

We also frequented Big Daddy's which is a great place to eat. A couple of meals we had at The Lodge. The food at The Lodge is outstanding.

When I did cook at your house, I certainly had everything I needed. Your kitchen is well stocked with cookware and utensils. You even had a stockpot! I remember one year I had to buy one because the house I was staying in didn't have one.

We look forward to being able to stay at Teddy Cloud in the future. Thank you for your hospitality and concern for the comfort of your house guests. I will be recommending your place to friends.

Quiet and Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
It was snowing upon our arrival to the outskirts of Cloudcroft and this wonderful cabin. We were able to enjoy the view from all of the windows in the warmth of this cozy getaway. It is well equipped and exceeded our expectations. It is also pet friendly- a bonus for a pet owner. We were also able to enjoy the deck and its peaceful, treetop surroundings when the sun came up and warmed the area. We were close enough to town for a quick trip , but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet. Although we enjoyed the many amenities in the Cloudcroft area, the operative word for this trip was "retreat" and Teddycloud delivered.

Oh, My Stars!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed our week at Teddy Cloud. The cabin was well-stocked and cozy and we enjoyed delicious meals on the deck and relaxing days and nights at this mountain retreat. We were in the mountains during the Perseid meteor showers and saw 15 shooting stars in just over one hour one of the nights we were there. It was great to watch for stars from the comfort of the deck.
