ELK HOLLOW - ~A~ MOUNTAIN GETAWAY ON CLOUD NINE

Cloudcroft Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Elk Hollow Getaway is a comfortably decorated, two bedroom, two bath cabin with spacious covered decks surrounded by tall pines, and has all the comforts of home. It is located only a few miles from Cloudcroft and sits on several lots allowing you room to enjoy the sunshine and private wooded location. We call our cabin Elk Hollow, because at dawn and dusk the elk will stroll down the hollow beside and below the cabin. Sometimes you will see herds of 25-30 elk at one time.

In the greatroom, the ledge-rock, gas fireplace will warm you during chilly evenings. The well-equipped kitchen has everything you need. Use the gas barbecue grill on the deck while enjoying a spectacular view of the Sacramento Mountains. There is a pond just down the road from the cabin where you can feed the many fish. There is also a nice hiking trail through the Lincoln National Park just beyond the pond.

The bedrooms at Elk Hollow are very nicely decorated, have ceiling fans, and both have nice views. Both bathrooms have heaters in addition to central gas heating.

Elk Hollow is located in a private community where the roads are maintained year round. The community has no really steep hills, so driving and walking is a pleasure. It is advisable, however, to use a four-wheel drive vehicle or chains during winter months.

There is abundant wildlife in the area. You may see elk, whitetail and mule deer, bears, raccoons, chipmunks, rabbits, and a huge variety of birds. Several varieties of hummingbirds make their home in the Southern Rocky Mountains from April through Mid-September.

Just minutes away from our cabin is the Cloudcroft Lodge and Golf Course, four Village Tennis Courts, Ski Cloudcroft, the Village Ice Skating Rink, park, playground, shopping, the Cloudcroft Museum, bakery and restaurants. Browsing the quaint shops in the village is a must.

One stay at Elk Hollow will bring you back. The combination of stylish country decor, refreshing crisp mountain air added to the fabulous Sacramento Mountain view, makes this one of Cloudcroft's best rental cabins. Come see for yourself why Elk Hollow is the perfect solution to your mountain get-a-way no matter what the occasion.

We provide four snow discs for your use on our hillside, or you may take them to Ski Cloudcroft ( 3 miles away) to use with their towrope, or they can be used on the sand dunes at White Sands National Park.

About The Owner

My husband, Bill, retired from the Air Force with 26 years of service, and I had a career as a Realtor, specializing in corporate and military relocation, for over 20 plus years. We've lived all over the USA including Washington, DC, MD, SC, FL, CO, UT, TX, NV, and overseas in Japan and Korea.

Why The Owner chose Cloudcroft

We fell in love with Cloudcroft after visiting friends there in 2003. We enjoyed living in the mountains previously, so we decided to build a second home in Cloudcroft once we found the perfect location.

At Elk Hollow we provide everything you need to make your vacation a wonderful experience. We want all of our guests to feel as though Elk Hollow is their own little piece of heaven.

What makes this cabin unique

Well, you just can't beat the view from Elk Hollow! Mountain views and woodland views from all rooms, and Elk Hollow has a large, fully covered wrap-around deck and gas BBQ for your enjoyment. We also have Wi-Fi and two TV's and DVD players. We furnish all condiments, herbs, spices, coffee and even birdseed. If your visiting for the wildlife, then we've got it. It is not uncommon to see herds of elk in our yard and throughout the neighborhood. We have a large pond down the road where you can feed the many fish, and just across the pond is a hiking trail through the Lincoln National Forest. We furnish sand/snow discs for winter use, or they can be used to sled down the sand dunes at White Sands National Monument in Alamogordo.

Amazing Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Elk Hollow from July 3-7. It exceeded our expectations in every way! The home itself is beautifully furnished and includes everything you could want for your stay. As beautiful and comfortable as the home is, it was the extra thoughtful touches of the owners that set this home apart, from the birdseed to feed the birds to the multiple page information letter that let us know everything we need to know about the home to warning us that we needed to stock up on groceries in Artesia to the restaurant recommendations. We especially loved the wrap around balcony porch with views looking down the valley and out across to the mountains. We didn't explore the Cloudcroft area as much as we might have because we were so content just relaxing on the porch. I highly recommend Elk Hollow!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
We were so excited about going and you know how you always hope it's as nice as expected. It was BETTER!!! I viewed pictures and read reviews and felt confident, but when we walked in we felt at home! The deck is awesome! The cabin is comfortable and they thought of everything you could need! We went with another couple and the whole time we were there we were trying to figure out when we could come back!!! It's so relaxing. It is a steep walk for those of us who live on flat land, so you get a bit of a work out just going from the car to the door! But, oh, so worth it! The information that is provided is so helpful. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Cloudcroft!

It was a memorable Spring Break 2014! We enjoyed the comfort of the cabin and beautiful scenery Cloudcroft had to offer. Found Cloudcroft to be very convenient to travel to Ruidoso and Alamogordo. It was truly relaxation. The cold mornings were nice, but the day time weather was perfect. Have already recommended your place to our friends and family!

Best getaway ever!

  • 5 of 5
This was the most peaceful vacation we ever took. Even though attractions were a short distance away, we enjoyed the property and surrounding landscapes so much, we wound up not leaving the area but one time. The house (inside and out) looked like it was brand new. The view out the sliding doors and on the patio were beautiful mountain, valley, and clouds dancing through them. We got to experience the elk bugling and coming down the mountain right beside the house three times. We'll be going back in the future. We surely would recommend this place to friends.
