About Dave and Vicki Moffatt

Vicki and I live in Austin Texas and personally renovated a great deal of the interior and rear decking. I'm a Boston native and she's a Texan-so we have an interesting time figuring out each other's accents! I work in the leadership development field and Vicki taught private voice and is now retired. Visiting the cabin 3-4 times a year to stay and vacation/work is one of our favorite things to do. Vicki is a highly creative and hard-working renovation 'hobbyist', and this cabin has been one of her favorite projects. Me-I'm the janitor and handyman. We don't have any kids, but we do have two dogs and a cat. One of the reasons we chose this cabin is the fenced yard and deck which allows dogs to have some roaming area.

Dave and Vicki Moffatt purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Dave and Vicki Moffatt chose New Mexico

When I first moved out west from Boston I ended up in New Mexico, and used to ride my motorcycle up into Cloudcroft. I promised myself I would one day buy a cabin in the Sacramento Mountains, and finally did it! New Mexico is a special place for us-my Mom and niece live in Las Cruces. Cloudcroft is a perfect getaway for us because it's so small and relatively undeveloped (compared to nearby Ruidoso). Getting up to the mountains is something we plan for and anticipate all year.

What makes this cabin unique

The deck did it for us-looks out at the mountains and a wonderful view of the meadows. It's surrounded and protected by huge pine trees that provide great shade for reading. We just installed a high-efficiency woodstove that just about heats the whole place in the winter. And it's great for dogs, especially the smaller breeds. The deck is up high and the railings are fenced so dogs can't slip through. This is a unique cabin-we get lots of repeat vacationers who say they love the place. The kitchen is fully stocked and great for preparing meals-the breakfast nook is a great place to drink coffee and look at the forest. Plus, there's a finished play room below the deck with an electric fireplace and a small pool table, TV and PlayStation-great place to stash the kids or getaway to do some quiet reading. What we love about this place is it's out of town by just 7 miles, hidden on a hillside with a dirt packed road, so it's a super quiet area. Feels like we have it all to ourselves, and there is lots of walking!

Cozy cabin in the treetops

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Teddy Cloud. The cabin is very nicely furnished and comfortable. I especially liked the window reading nook and my husband appreciated the DVD assortment. We felt that our small dogs were safe there. We enjoyed some nice hikes in the area. One suggestion would be to add an outside dining table. None of the existing ones were the right height for dining.

Nice place, great for dogs, and conveniently located, close to town

  • 5 of 5

Teddy Cloud is very much as unpleasant surprises. It is a cutely decorated and comfortable place to use as a home base to explore the area, or to just hangout or read while your dog, if you have one, can roam around the deck or explore the fenced in side yard unattended. The cabin is kept in good the caretaker who was trying to squeeze in a very small sheetrock ( I think) repair in the few hours he had between renters. And his wife keeps the place quite clean. The. couple slightly negative comments I'd have are that you can hear some traffic from the 2 lane highway while sitting outside. It wasn't too bothersome to me but it is there. Never bothered me at night. And secondly is the small size of the LR TV. I think, but don't know, the size might be due to the location near the wood burning stove. However I doubt this would be an issue for most people.

The owner was responsive to my inquiries in a timely manner and answered my few questions completely. And my deposit was refunded immediately appearing on my credit card within 2 days.

I would recommend Teddy Cloud .

Owner's Response: We really enjoyed all of your comments and so glad you mentioned our husband and wife team who help us with the maintenance and upkeep of Teddy Cloud. They are awesome and we are very lucky to have them. It sounds like you enjoyed your time there and we're so glad you did. We actually previously upgraded the tv in the living room to a larger flat screen. The location is out of the way which is definitely why it's not even bigger. We also mounted it so you can turn it to different locations of site, including the kitchen, if you were in there and wanted to watch something; if it were even larger that wouldn't be possible. Maybe in the future we could consider mounting one to the wall over the wood stove, so you have us thinking about it. We've binged on many movies there! Thank you so much for all of your comments.

Another Great Vacation at Teddy Cloud

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE this little cabin! This was the third stay at Teddy Cloud for my wife and me. We just love the coziness and comfort that the cabin provides. Love sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee and watching the hummingbirds, and taking in the wonderful view! We always travel with our little pug, and he too appreciates the pet friendly nature of Teddy Cloud! Some nice updates have been added this year, including a new sofa bed, washer and dryer, and flooring. We hope to continue visiting Teddy Cloud for years to come! Thanks to Dave and Vicki for providing such a wonderful and relaxing retreat among the clouds!

Great Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

We go to Teddy Croft to unwind from our busy lives and get out of the Texas heat. Its the perfect place to do both. We take our Boston Terriers every were we go and since we have more than one it is hard to find a place that will accept them but at Teddy Croft we were welcomed. Thank you so much for the loan of your great cabin in the woods. The Carters
