About the property

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.

Nice size and location, but home needs some updates

  • 3 of 5

The A/C in Otero cabin was non-existent, and the temp was in the 90's. We had 11 people staying here and man was it warm and uncomfortable. Also the fridge doesn't keep a constant temp, your groceries in the fridge freeze and your freezer items don't freeze. The oven doesn't cook evenly and burned our rolls at both 375 and 250. Also the "pool table" is an old, old uneven, particle board, broke down mess. All the cue balls roll to the left corner, this really shouldn't even be listed as an amenity. There were mops, pales and junk laying out on the front deck. The dining room chairs are on their last legs. The entrance to this home is awkward, and uninviting. This home served its purpose but put a damper on our entire family reunion. Definitely would NOT rent it again.

It was a pleasant stay. Perfect backdrop for family time

  • 4 of 5

Overall things were nice at the cabin. There are a few things that were in disrepair, the pool table for one. But aside from a few issues that could use some maintenance, the cabin was well kept and clean. It had plenty of space for my guests and a good time was generally had by all. I look forward to renting that cabin in the future.

Car: recommended

Our cabin is located in a quiet residential area not far from anything in Ruidoso. It takes only minutes to get to restaurants, shops, the grocery store, the movie theater, golf courses, and more.
