Magical Christmas at Lacy's Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Dreams of a White Christmas became a reality and there was no better place to experience it than at Lacy's Log Cabin in Alto, NM. The log house is wonderful with a great view of Sierra Blanca from the spacious front porch. The Milky Way put on quite a spectacular show in the winter sky. The radiant floor heat during the cold weather was a treat and the pool table was fun for the grands. The hot tub was ready upon arrival and felt relaxing, day or night. Hand feeding apple slices, carrot coins...and maybe an oatmeal cookie or two...on the back deck to the herd of deer passing by mornings and afternoons was a thrill for everyone. With Santa and reindeer snacks set out by the toasty fireplace, we slipped into bed Christmas Eve hoping for snow. And it did! After opening presents, we bundled up and went sledding on the neighborhood streets and made a snowman. So much fun. The gas grill cooked our Christmas steaks to perfection. The house contact person was easy to reach by phone prior to the trip and had helpful answers to my questions. Our family made magical memories at Lacy's Log Cabin.

A Little Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this beautiful location justice. As we drove up for our yearly "Chick Trip", the jacuzzi was being prepared for our use by maintenance. Aside from that, our group of ladies were left to our own devices in an immaculate, fully stocked and furnished cabin with breathtaking views overlooking the mountains of Ruidoso. It was unseasonably hot (95) on our first day of arrival, but quickly cooled to 55 that evening. The cabin had a roll-away AC unit that we didn't even bother using, as the cool breeze through the windows, along with the ceiling fans, were enough to keep the cabin temperature comfortable. We enjoyed the sunsets and sunrises from ample swings and rocking chairs scattered around both decks on either sides of the cabin. We particularly enjoyed hand feeding apples, carrots and celery to the deer popped in for a visit. We an early morning horseback ride at Grindstone Stables with some of the most friendly and helpful guides, and followed up with an adrenaline rush of an afternoon Zipline ride at Ski Apache. The first attempt to zipline was delayed by a day for us due to lightning in the afternoon. Because this is considered "monsoon season", afternoon showers common. Plan accordingly!! We really enjoyed the easy friendliness the community of Ruidoso exudes as a whole, and was pleasantly surprised to see how pet-friendly this community is as well. Last year's chick trip was the beach, but our stay in Ruidoso won a very special place in our hearts. We WILL be back!!!

Lacy`s Cabin

  • 3 of 5

We knew going in that the cabin had no A/C. Would not ever rent a cabin again without A/ was miserable.

Recommend to ALL not to make the same mistake we made. ONLY RENT CABINS WITH A/C!!!

Beautiful cabin with outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

Property and cabin were beautiful! Hot tub didn't work the first night, but was up and working the next. Front Driveway needs to be repaired. No central AC/Heat not that it was needed for this time of year. Aside from everything, cabin was great and beautiful. Loved the herd of deer that stay in the neighborhood! Also loved the fact that the cabin is right up the road from Ski Apache and not far fro

Downtown Ruidoso.

Second time to visit

  • 4 of 5

This was the second time for my husband and I to stay at Lacy's cabin. We absolutely love the front porch view of the mountains. The cabin is very clean and well kept. One complaint this trip was that the hot tub cover was broken so they had to remove it. This resulted in the water being very dirty and therefore we did not use it during our stay. We wish it would have been fixed prior to our stay becaus we were really looking forward to using the hot tub because it was beautiful weather but did not feel comfortable because the water was so dirty because of the broken cover.
