Ruidoso House Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

Our lodge is secluded yet conveniently located two miles from the town of Ruidoso. You will drive through the beautiful Lincoln National Forest and the recreation area to arrive at the lodge. We are a short walk away from Cedar Creek and the Lincoln National Forest recreation area where you will find hiking and biking trails, picnic tables with barbecue grills, and covered pavilions. Our lodge is located in a quiet area where you can kick back and relax on a private deck with a hot tub.

After walking up the front deck you'll find the hot tub nestled in between the walls of the home, providing great privacy as you gaze into the beauty of the forest. From the entrance of the home, the kitchen and main living and dining areas are located to the right in the A-frame portion of the cabin. This also houses a full bathroom right off of the living room and dining area. There is plenty of comfortable seating in the living room with a fireplace to cozy up next to. Taking the stairs to the loft brings you to an open room with a full bed that looks down into the living room. On the back side of that room is a private bedroom with another full bed that has a small walkout second story deck for a great view into the forest and hillside.

A king size bed awaits you in the bedroom near the main entrance of the home, with a half bathroom attached and personal exits to the back deck. This bedroom also has a day bed tucked into the corner that's great for children wanting to be close to their parents. Down the hall to the left from the front door leads you to the huge master bedroom, furnished with a desk, TV, recliner and a walk-in closet. Attached is the master bathroom with a jetted spa tub and separate shower. The washer and dryer are also located in this spacious bathroom in a utility closet.

We hope you will choose to stay at our lovely home. Please check the calendar for availability as well as look at our rates page for specific descriptions on nightly minimums, seasonal rates, and holidays.

Quiet area

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your cabin. We had a couple of deer visit back patio and there was elk near cabin, which excited everyone. Kids and grandkids were thrilled for hot tub and loft. Owner was quick to try to help when we discovered water not on upon our arrival. Apparently it was off for area wide service that we just happen to catch the end of. The kids enjoyed the go carts, shopping and eating pizza at Café Rio.

Good last minute choice

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful cabin, clean and has everything you need! The cleaning fee is a little outrageous compared to others....especially when we had to strip the sheets, gather up towels, wash dishes all before check out. For $$$ cleaning fee, that should be done by the cleanup by crew. The shrub/tree located off the front of the deck needs to be trimmed, it blocks your view while relaxing. We did find a dead mouse on the back patio. But otherwise a nice place.

Owner's Response: The cleaning & maintenance fee pays the cleaning service and spa technician who service the house after each guest. We prefer to charge this fee, from which we make no profits, in order to keep the nightly rental fee lower. In that way, guests know exactly what they are paying for. Guests are asked to strip the sheets from used beds, pile up dirty towels and load the dishwasher before leaving. I believe this is fairly common protocol for all vrbo houses.

Roomy family retreat

  • 3 of 5

Thank you for the use of your cabin! We enjoyed the room to stretch out and relax between adventures. The separation of the rooms allows for a nice private spot for each member of the group. Peaceful. Well equipped. Cute touches and rustic appeal.

We never were able to get the hot tub to warm up, even with people in our group very familiar with the workings. Some issues with cobwebs and areas that needed some deeper cleaning before usage. The layout has a lot of unlevel floors and steps. One of the older members of our family took a good fall. Be ware if booking with elderly or young children.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay! I'm sorry you did not get to enjoy the hot tub as well. If you had contacted me, I would have sent our spa technician over right away to make sure it was working for your enjoyment. The hot tub is maintained on a weekly basis by a professional spa service. It does stay in the economy mode when not in use, so the mode must be changed to get it to heat properly.

Great property with room for all

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautifully maintained, fully stocked with everything you need for a fun getaway with friends or family.

The pictures don't do the home justice. Big master bedroom, nice kitchen with a very comfy living room.

On our second night there, we were pleasantly surprized to find the front yard filled with deer!

We would definitely stay again!

It was Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was so wonderful!! It was comfortable and cozy. We had a fire every evening after getting back from our cold adventure out and then would pop in the hot tub. I didn't want to leave and can't wait to get back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!
