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.

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.

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.

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.

Best getaway ever!

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.

The weather had turned rainy while we were heading up the mountain, but it did not matter.
I think it just made our stay that much more interesting.
The owners are so friendly and accommodating. The pantry was stocked with popcorn and cookie mixes and much more just to make you feel at home.
My husband and I had just finished 3 days with extended family and the beautiful mountain cabin was just what we needed.
The porch had soft comfortable furniture and bird feeders . If you felt the need for TV, there was a flat screen. Plenty of books and games and even Wi-Fi.
The elk were rutting , so they were bugling all night. what a lovely sound accompanied by the rain.
The next day we hiked around White Sands, but couldn't wait to get back to our restful peaceful cabin.
When I booked it they had only 2 nights available.
I will remember to book way in advance so we can stay longer.
Thanks again to Bill and Jeri-Lynn...
Your home is a treasure. Thank you for sharing!

I'm tempted to give it a mediocre review just so it will be easier to book in the future!

Seriously, this is a wonderful property with a great view. We saw a multitude of hummingbirds, chipmunks, and other interesting wildlife. The koi in the pond were very fun to feed. There was good cell phone reception, but no data transmission on AT&T, which made for a nice excuse to never check my e-mail on the trip.

Of all the places recommended to eat, we can't praise Big Daddy's enough. Very nice folks, and the food was incredible. We ate there twice during our 3-day stay.

This property is a great getaway that we will definitely be recommending to our family, and we will be using again.

The owners Jeri-Lynn and Bill have gone above and beyond on this cabin. We had EVERYTHING we needed and then some. What an awesome time we had in Cloudcroft, but we really didn't want to leave the cabin because it was so relaxing and had plenty of wildlife. The view from the deck was spectacular! We have stayed in several VRBO's and this is by far the best we have rented. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful mountain home with us. We will definitely be coming back.
