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!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin exceeded our expectations. It was very clean, cozy and had everything you need. The deer greeted us as soon as we drove up. The scenery is breathtaking. The cabin is secluded yet you are still close to town. My family and I loved spending New Year's building a snowman. We made memories that I will treasure forever.

Got Charged

  • 3 of 5

The place was nice but there are a few things that could be improved. First thing is when you get get there make sure you inspect the whole cabin and I mean the WHOLE place, otherwise they will get you for damages if you don't spot them. On my trip there was a shelf in the refrigerator that was crack on the side and I did not catch it but they did, I also had to replace some light bulbs and remote batteries that were out. The things that could be improved is the driveway, internet ( need ), and a TV ( need) in the bottom bedrooms.

We apologize for the remote batteries and will be sure our service team adds those to their extensive pre-guest check-list. We strive to keep everything in top condition so all our guests have a great experience. This has been made possible with the cooperation of all our great guests such as yourself. Steve & Jane

Rented the cabin for 4 nigts @ a very reasonable price. We enjoyed our stay. We got to enjoy several places like the winter park and the Ski Apache. The cabin is cozy and has everything you need. We definitely saved on fast food. We felt at home, we Cooked every day. The kids enjoyed feeding the deer and most of all the snow. We would definitely go back.

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.
