My wife and I recently decided to take a 'mini' vacation and spend a couple nights somewhere we could just relax and enjoy each other and our children without the normal daily stress of work, school, etc. We decided to stay in Cloudcroft and, after seeing Aspen Lodge, thought it would be the perfect get-away. It did not disappoint us! From start to finish, the experience was incredible. The owners were so friendly and helpful at the time of the reservation and the photos very accurately reflected the beautiful, serene nature of the mountain cabin. It was snowing when we got there and the caretakers had heated the hot tub to a wonderful 102 degrees! It was incredible to relax in a heated jacuzzi and watch snow falling all around us. The house was exceptionally clean and they had everything we needed for cooking, etc. All of the beds had heated blankets, which completely added to the ambiance of a cabin in the woods. The woodstove was a beautiful change from the central heat we have at home. Although they had central heat at the cabin, the woodstove was all we needed. It was very calming to sit in front of it reading quietly or playing a game or two. The owners have not left out anything in this home. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the game table downstairs and played air hockey non-stop. They occasionally took a break to join us in one of the board games or puzzles they have for guest enjoyment. The two bathrooms were immaculate and we had plenty of towels for showers and the jacuzzi. They also have a washer and dryer so we were able to wash anything we needed to. We did eat out one night and found there was a great selection for such a small village. There is also an outdoor skating rink that is open fairly late, where they play music and serve hot chocolate. It was so perfect. Burro Street in the village is filled with quaint shops with all kinds of things to buy and the people are so friendly. They even have a place that sells potpourri that smells just like the mountains and the piney woods. We loved all of it! My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! We have already recommended this cabin to many of our friends who enjoy these get-aways as much as we do. Can't wait to stay again. Thank you for everything!
