first impression of the cabin was just as depectided on the web site.

  • 4 of 5

the flight of stairs in front of the cabin are quite a climb. the road to the cabin is a pretty steep grade. Other than that it was just what we wanted !!!! Great location, plenty of tall pine trees, and the river was close enough to walk to and watch the kids play. The pet friendly place has a great side yard for the dog too.

We had a wonderful time during our stay over the 4th of July. There was more than enough room for our six family members and furry four-legged babies. The dog run was perfect! Loved the deck and the view!! Great area close to down town but far enough away to enjoy the mountains and Rio Ruidoso River. Would definitely stay there again!

My family along with my parents and sisters family stayed in Lazy Dog Lodge for two nights. We had plenty of space and the kids loved running around. We even saw a few deer! The house had everything we needed to grill out each night once we had purchased groceries. Will be back to Lazy Dog Lodge in the future!
