BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5
Our family has just returned from Ruidoso today after spending 4 nights at this cabin. The cabin was just exactly as described. I have been vacationing in Ruidoso since I was a little boy, and I have never had a cabin that was in a more perfect location than this cabin was. It probably has the best view of the river of any of the cabins along the river. It being in the upper canyon made it a perfect location for the quietness of the location, plus it was close enough to downtown to make it very accessible. I will definitely return to this cabin from now on if available. The deer came up to our granddaughters and ate out of their hands. Extremely satisfied with this booking. Don't hesitate to book this cabin. It's what I remember from my childhood. And I like that.

Owner's Response: We also spent time every summer in Ruidoso as children and love the Upper Canyon. Deer are plentiful and graze around the cabin. Glad you liked it and will be looking forward to
your return.

VIEW OF RIVER

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I loved the weekend get-away at your cabin. It had the best view of the river, was clean, comfortable, well appointed, and close to down town. We loved our mornings and evenings on the back porch and quiet walks around the neighborhood. We will definitely come back

SISTER WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place for our sister weekend. We are scattered all over Texas, and this was a great place for the three of us to gather. The home is very comfortable and the kitchen is well-equipped. We loved the deck and window views. I especially enjoyed the bird watching. Thank you so much for sharing!

SISTERS GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
What a great view from the deck of this comfortable property!!! It was absolutely the best thing about our stay, followed by the deer who greeted us on arrival, and the great location. The place was very clean and comfortable (especially the king-sized bed). We had trouble working the remotes for the TV, but all we really wanted was news, so we really didn't miss the TV. I wish the living room had one more lamp (a little dark), but everything was so comfortable, kitchen well-stocked, none of the minor negatives really mattered. We would definitely rent this property again. (Thanks to Bill, who helped us get in the front door upon arrival - very tricky door handle!!!)

Owner's Response: That is a good suggestion for another lamp. I know some people don't like overhead lights, even with a dimmer. (My mother hated them). We appreciate helpful tips. Thanks for taking the time to give us yours and for entering your review. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Come again any time!!!

ENJOYED OUR TIME @ "RIVER RUN"

Enjoyed our time @ "River Run"
  • 4 of 5
Excellent location - must be one of the best situated cabins on the Rio Ruidoso in Ruidoso. River sounded great.

Very comfortable cabin off the street with an outstanding deck overlooking river. Equipped with everything needed. Had snow one night. Saw deer every day. Excellent den area with large picture windows. Functional kitchen also with a nice view. Nice place for family time together and for family games. Enjoyed time with our elderly parents. Very reasonably close to other Ruidoso amenities.

NEW YEARS STAY WAS JUST WHAT WE NEEDED!

  • 4 of 5
It was our first time to Ruidoso - cabin was easy to find - and the town was easy to navigate and supplied everything we needed at fair prices. The cabin is well appointed - having all necessary items - washer/dryer (a life saver!), kitchen was well supplied with basic cooking tools, the beds were adequate and the bedrooms had lots of space. We kept the fireplace going almost the whole time we were there - very nice to have! (You can get wood at a great price across the street from Wal-Mart). The view from the cabin was amazing - our kids (9&12) went on an adventure almost everyday out back down by the river. The area where the cabin is located is very quaint and picturesque. The horse sleigh rides were a cute attraction - however we didnt have the time to take advantage of them. We took our 2 yellow labs and they felt right at home - we felt they were in a safe environment both inside and outside. And the deer - wow! We had them on both sides of the house -most days. We kept apples and pears around to feed them. They would eat right out of our hands.

The cabin matched the description - it is not an new home - but it is great in size, location, and roominess. It more than met our needs. The owner was a pleasure to work with - very much a joy to speak to. Also we got to meet the caretaker of the property who made us feel at home if anything was to go wrong he was just around the corner.

We love to cook and were able to enjoy cooking and eating at the cabin the whole week, thus I have no restaurants to recommend. We did hit the ski slopes and the tubing park - had lots of fun and it was really easy to get to. We did a little shopping in town - very quaint and special. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to visit Ruidoso and truly feel like you have stayed with a family member. It really felt like it was our place for the time there. David and Barbara - thank you for opening your "home" to us an allowing us to thoroughly enjoy our time there.
