About Edward & Shyll Bowen

Shyll and I would love to welcome you to our cozy log cabin in Cloudcroft, New Mexico! We both spent so many happy times in Cloudcroft as we were growing up in Lubbock, Texas. Although we now live in Colorado, where I am a minister, we still love spending time in Cloudcroft. If was my parents' lifetime dream to own a cabin in Cloudcroft, but they passed away without realizing that dream. We know that they would have loved our new cabin, and we will always think of them when we spend time with our own kids here. In fact, we call the loft Grandpa's loft! Mema's quilt covers the downstairs queen bed in what would have definitely been her bedroom. We plan to gather with our own children in this special place to make treasured memories of time spent together as we relax and take in the beauty of God's magnificent creation around us. We hope you will also create some memories to hold dear at Skyhaven Escape!

What makes this cabin unique

Our log home is located on the last road of the east side of the village of Cloudcroft. So, it remains secluded, but is still near everything in the village.

Spacious for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We arrived very late our first night and we had a couple of questions. I texted the number we were given & received a prompt response. The next morning we had everything we needed! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! & the kids really enjoyed the pool table! The deck was the perfect place for the adults to unwind.

The cabin was beautiful and had everything we wanted and needed.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin. We almost didn't want to go out and do the outdoor activities because we were enjoying the cabin so much. However, we did get out in the snow quite a bit and liked coming back to the perfect atmosphere in the evenings.

Nice home to chilax in the show

  • 3 of 5

The home is close to town in a quiet neighborhood. It is very well maintained, clean, and very welcoming. Woods across the street give the house a degree of privacy. The fireplace is nice and cozy and a great place to relax with a book. If you go in winter confirm the driveway is plowed. Snow blocked it for us which made it difficult. The number for the caretaker was available and he came promptly to let us drive in. Keep his number handy. You may need him again. The direct TV system does not seem to work in snow storms. There is a DVD system but we could not find any discs to view. Consider bringing some. The upstairs mattress needs to be replaced so use the downstairs bedroom as your first choice. Overall a very nice property and I would recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. Just a reminder to our guests, the cabin is located in Cloudcroft at nearly 9000ft. Please expect snow during the winter months. Our maintenance crew does clear the snow from the driveway and if you should find it snowing, please do not hesitate to call them and they will clear it. All mattresses in the cabin are less than two years old, and everyone has a different preference on how they should feel so I went with my wife's preference. I felt that to be the safest bet! Finally, we are with Dish and yes, sometimes when it is snowing heavily, the antenna, which is to the rear of the cabin mounted on a tree trunk, needs to be cleared.

Wonderful cabin!!

  • 4 of 5

Great cabin!! Our family enjoyed it very much during the Christmas/New Year week. We were hoping for snow, being from Texas, and we got more than we bargained for but it was still fun! The incline in the drive is a bit challenging when coated with ice and snow. The cabin is very well stocked with everything you could need, including firewood. Very clean and well maintained. Bring food or expect to drive to Alamogordo because the local store's inventory is very limited. Great place to stay, close to town, and short drive to Ruidoso. Thanks to the owners for sharing this special cabin. Look forward to coming again.

Family relaxing dates

  • 5 of 5

It’s truly been some great days in Haven during our winter stay.

My kids enjoy and had lots of fun in the snow and inside the cabin.

We got to see a family of white tail deer; it was amazing just seen them walking away a few feet from us at the back and front area of the cabin this included some birds and squirrels feeding on the porch.

We enjoy ourselves deeply in this cabin and it was worth the price.

The night before we left, us all did not want to leave, this is how we were so relax and so at home we felt at. For sure we’ll return to Skyhaven Cabin and is also on our list for friends and family recommendations. Thank you so much for the warm welcome.
