Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Grant & Dennean,

What a lovely place you have in Ruidoso. It is so peaceful and the view off the deck is gorgeous! We met the hummingbirds, watched turkeys, and a mother deer with twin fawns came by each morning. The cabin was just the perfect size, so nicely decorated and comfortable. Again we want to thank you for sharing your cabin with us and so many others. It was a perfect retreat to spend our 30th anniversary.

Thank you,
Jul 2012

Great Cabin and Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Dyer Straits cabin, we spent most of our time on the upper back deck enjoying the weather and watching the dear, turkey and birds. The location was perfect on top of Upper Canyon with lots of privacy but only a few minutes to town with all of the shops and restaurants. The owner was great and we will definitely be back to Dyer Straits. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven with us. Bob & Glynis

Ruidoso weekend

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Ruidoso. The house was clean and well furnished. The downstairs offered a play room and hideout for playing pool and foosball, while upstairs was a great sitting area. Our favorite was the deck. We loved viewing the deer and turkeys walking below, and the numerous birds constantly visiting the feeder. The location is just far enough up the canyon so only a few cars came by on a busy weekend. The house is less than 10 minutes’ drive to everything in Ruidoso. We would certainly go back.

Dyer Staights Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We loved the cabin, it has everything you could want. Loved the pool table and foosball table, when we weren't outside on the fabulous porches. Yes, 2 porches, with a new BBQ and beautiful views! There was wildlife to see everyday, wild turkeys, deer and ravens.

Thank you, we had a wonderful time and will be back!

Great place for families

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Dyer Straits! It was perfect for our family (kids are 11 & 14yo). They enjoyed playing pool & watching wildlife on the porch. The cabin is located close to the Perk canyon trailhead, and we all enjoyed the hike there multiple times! It was a very clean cabin & stocked with everything we needed. Thanks for sharing your place with us!

Great location and view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Memorial Day weekend with another family. The cabin had nearly everything that we needed. The decks are beautiful! Within ten minutes of our arrival, we were standing less than twenty feet away from a family of deer. Everything was clean and smelling wonderful when we arrived. The only negative thing that I can say is that the pool table is right outside of the room for kids, so we weren't able to play any late night adult pool. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone, and we plan on staying there again the next time we come to town.
