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!
