Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a great weekend here. We showed up 30 minutes before check-in and the cleaning crew was just wrapping up. When we stepped in the cabin it was neat and clean and up to our expectations. The porch out back has plenty of seating and an excellent view of Sierra Blanca. Throughout the weekend we spent time in Ruidoso shopping(5 minutes away), hiking around Sierra Blanca(40 minutes away), and checked out the Inn of the Mountain of the Gods casino and restaurant(15 minutes away). We even woke up to 2 inches of snow on Sunday morning! All in all a great cabin in a great location.

Although none of these things would prevent me from staying here again I feel they are worth noting. There is no fenced in area if you bring your dog and there was a loose dog at the cabin each morning. The master bed was a little uncomfortable and there was not an exhaust fan in the bathroom. Other than those few small things perfect. We fully intend to stay here again.

Enjoy!

Cozy Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We wanted a comfortable, relaxing getaway, and that is exactly what we got! The cabin was clean and well-furnished, with lots of personal touches. We were a bit concerned when the weather turned suddenly colder just before our trip, but despite temperatures in the mid teens (not counting wind chill!) we were quite comfortable in the cabin. The living room maintained a satisfactory temperature, and the bedrooms were even warmer! Beds were very comfy and had plenty of blankets, quilts, and pillows. The kitchen had everything needed for cooking, but I often chose to be lazy and enjoy the local eateries (Hall of Flame has great burgers)!

We enjoyed the cabin's beautiful view, especially while it was snowing. We were fortunate enough to be visited by a small (10!) herd of deer one afternoon--they came quite close to the cabin and were not frightened away by our picture taking and conversation.

Our only caveat--in the winter, take the snow tires/chains advisory seriously. The paved roads were clear, but the gravel drive was not. Getting up the hill was difficult the first night.

All in all, an excellent stay in an excellent cabin! We will be recommending this property to our friends wanting to vacation in Ruidoso. We're looking forward to returning next year ourselves in warmer weather!
