Overview

Ruidoso Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

Jane and Steve built this log cabin as a family project doing almost every bit with our bare hands. We love the peace of the great outdoors and the romantic atmosphere of a real log cabin.

We bought some land in a quiet neighborhood hidden in the Lincoln National Forest in Ruidoso, NM. Our friends already had a home in this neighborhood so we knew it was a great spot.

We then traveled to Sacramento California for a Log Home Expo and studied techniques and materials of different log suppliers. After evaluating the value and engineering of many suppliers, we chose Kuhns Bros and flew to Pennsylvania with our oldest son. Here we visited the log mill where the rough materials were kiln dried. At the mill, the log cutting was performed by young Amish, skilled in the art of handcrafting logs. The rough materials were packed onto two trucks heading off to Ruidoso. It was so exciting to be a part of the whole process when the trucks left and later when they arrived at their new home.

Well, five years and who-knows how many weekend trips later, we finally finished building. All the while, our family grew older, and ok, the boys refused to leave El Paso (and their friends) on the weekends anymore. Steve's parents helped with construction and gardening during their annual vacations West.

We are happy to share this experience with other families and hope you will all have a chance to enjoy this peaceful environment.

About Steve Thomson

Steve is an automotive engineer and Jane is a dental hygienist. Together we ran a Boy Scout troop and got to love the outdoors while our 2 sons made Eagle Scout.

Steve Thomson purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Steve Thomson chose Ruidoso

We loved visiting Ruidoso for the peaceful environment, great restaurants and fresh mountain air. We decided to build our own place because it was hard for us to find a real log cabin that we could afford to rent for a weekend AND that was not in a congested area of other cabins.

What makes this cabin unique

This location is so quiet, less than a dozen cars go by in a single day. And still, it is only a 3-mile drive to all the shopping and restaurants that make Ruidoso great!

Fantastic cabin

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this cabin. It was very clean and there was more than enough room for the three of us. The cabin is located in a picturesque area. We were able to see deer and birds from the porch. We would definitely stay here again.

We had a great time in this beautiful cabin, it is clean and we felt comfortable. We loved looking at the deer and just watching the birds. The cabin had everything we need it, especially the kitchen. We would definitely go back and recommend it.

family weekend

  • 5 of 5
Loved spending the weekend in this gorgeous modern cabin with my family. The road getting there is a little steep but definitely worth the drive. Plenty of deer to amuse the kids and close to a picnic area in the Lincoln Forrest. I will definitely be going back.

Perfect Honeymoon getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was rented for us by my family as a honeymoon getaway and we loved it. It is everything promised in the advertisement. We loved it. It was clean, well maintained and had everything we needed. As an added bonus we got to feed the deer bread off the porch. It was amazing....
