After the hustle and bustle of city life in Houston we fulfilled a dream to move to the peaceful Rocky Mountains of New Mexico and build a log home on property purchased some years before. We had a good 10 years at this property as our home. In 2002 we became missionaries to Africa and have lived there the better part of the last 10 years. See Help4HopeAfrika.org When we are home and house is rented we may be found in the bunk room apartment downstairs. Otherwise we are away traveling and speaking to raise support for our Africa work.
Judi purchased this lodge in 1991
Why Judi chose Cloudcroft
We built this house in a secluded area in the Lincoln National Forest as a haven for us and for our friends and family.
What makes this lodge unique
Every aspect of Livin Hi is a story. You will see evidence of travels around the world. If you are a hunter or just enjoy being in a 'hunting lodge' you will enjoy Livin Hi! There's even a Victorian room and bath to make the ladies happy! The view from the 35 foot long covered upper and lower decks fill you with awe of God's creation. Bask in the sun on the large balcony off the master bedroom. You will not be disappointed and will never be able to take it all in! A jewel in the rough!
Guestbook comments from the manager
Judy, We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our time in your home! It was so comfortable and interesting. my children spent a lot of time looking up animals in books and internet to identify each one there. It was the perfect place for us. We spent most of our time there, went into Cloudcroft for dinner one night. We saw about 20 turkeys in the yard most days and after putting out some corn, came home to between 35 and 40 elk in the yard. One day we went to the national observatory and drove over to Bluff
Springs and counted more than 100 elk on that drive. We had a fun , relaxing time to remember while our son is in Afghanistan. It was very hard to leave him but we sure enjoyed our visit with him and so did he, and your beautiful place helped make that possible.
Thanks so much for sharing your home!
