Ruidoso House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths


Our home is a 2,200 square foot rustic log cabin located close to the Lincoln National Forest recreation area, downtown Ruidoso, and Ski Apache. It has a hot tub on the second level deck and also a third story sleeping loft for kids. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet, with daily deer sightings in the yard.

The home has a master bedroom with king, full bathroom attached, along with two other bedrooms (one king, one queen size beds) located down the hall with a full hallway bathroom nearby. The loft easily fits three more beds and TV area. The main living area and kitchen are located on the second story and are accessible from a stairway in the garage/entry area and a much shorter back-door entrance through the master bedroom from where the driveway curls around the house. Downstairs is a game room with extra sleeping (full-size bed & futon) plus pool/air hockey table for the kids.

Thank you for considering our lovely home. Please be sure to check the calendar for availability, and email me to receive an exact quote or to answer any questions you may have.

It is a very nice property, fairly easy access,

  • 4 of 5

The listing for this property is fairly accurate, some of the remodeling needs a little fine tuning there are some nail heads sticking out in various places on banisters, the lighting needs a little work dim in some of the bedrooms, this is a fine canidate for LED light bulbs, that being said this not the first property we have rented that had lighting issues in Ruidoso the dryer did not work, hot tub is excellent, nice deck, needs a new outside grille, if you don't like stairs this property is not for you location to activities is excellent, all this considered we would stay there again this is a nice property,

The cabin was better then what we expected!!

  • 4 of 5

Even though it was over Labor Day weekend and it was busy with all kinds of things going on in town!! The house was close to everything & It's in a beautiful quiet little neighborhood !! It was comfortable and homie!! We had family come over from their cabin and it was big enough to hold all 21 of us to eat and enjoy each others company and not be cramped!! If I had to complain the only thing would be is since we have to pay a clean up fee they could dust the fans so the dust bunnies don't fly when fans are on and cleaning under beds!! Hot tub didn't stay warm, but kiddos still loved it!! OVERALL A GOOD PLACE TO STAY!!

Large Cabin with a great second level

  • 4 of 5

This was the first time we had rented a large family cabin in Ruidoso. It was a great cabin with several beds and enough space to accommodate the amount of people it advertises. The view from the second level where the living room was and the loft were great. The place was clean and had everything as advertised.

The house's size was great for a large group, plenty of sleeping areas. The kitchen leaves a bit to be desired but not bad. The house was clean in obvious areas but not so much under furniture or under beds and such, the kids found lots of interesting things. The grill was held together with duct tape and was a huge safety issue. The upstairs den has unconverted outlets so if you have young kids be aware. The pool table/ fusball table was a joke and you couldn't use it. The bedding and towels were all clean. The house worked for our stay, but could have been better for the money.
