Outside our home features a hot, steamy hot tub with seating for eight and a fire pit. Great for a family gathering or a group of friends. Older home like most in Ruidoso, but clean and comfortable with everything necessary for a great vacation. Enjoy the daily wildlife visits right outside your door and take life at a slower pace. Easy walk into Up-Town and Mid-Town Ruidoso cafe's, restaurants, shopping and night life. Quick drive to the casino, golf, and easy drive to Ski Apache (about 5 miles to turn off)

There are 1000's of movies in all genre's that you can enjoy. Kids movies, comedy stations, horror flicks, name it, we have it.

average rating of 4.641791 based on 67 reviews

This place is amazing.. It easily accommodated 8 people with more than enough room to spare!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin/house is straight up awesome! More than enough to room, clean, cozy, and you can't beat the hot tub. A good pro was that after our stay the deposit was credited back in no time. Would stay again and I highly recommend this place.

Also, really close to restaurants, bars, and frankly anything you may need.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to Ruidoso and we love this house. Its not fancy but it is clean and it is very spacious. Since it was raining for the entire first day and night, it was really great to have the foosball, the hot tub and the zillions of movies to choose from! We ate in and there were plenty of pots and pans and everything else we needed. 2nd and 3rd day we went out for lunch and dinner and the suggestions on restaurants Doris gave us was right on target. I would highly recommend this cabin and Doris as a host.

Somewhat disappointed but had a relaxing vacation.

  • 3 of 5

When we arrived, we were disappointed first of how unlevel the rocks were to climb up (we are middle age and it would be difficult for anyone older), then the porch had huge spider webs. That was the first indication that we felt the house was not as kept as we thought it should have been. We had to wash the silver ware before we used it. The kitchen was well stocked-made it easy to cook anything. The stove is not level, made a mess for Lee's bd cake. We wanted to sit in the hot tub, but seeing an oily film on the water the first afternoon, we scratched that idea. The beds are extremely comfortable-we all slept great every night. Plenty of towels, blankets,....Great location, close to town. Loved the daily afternoon visit of the deer! I hope the TV instructions are updated so the next guests won't have to bother your husband.

We probably will not rent that house again, too hard to carry luggage in and out, hot tub not clean and in general not 100% clean.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you were disappointed in your visit to our home and wish you would have addressed your concerns when you arrived rather than after your departure. The outside of the home is accurately depicted in the photos so I am not sure if you expected something different. As far as the spider webs...the house is in the woods. We sweep for cob webs inside and spider webs outside before each guest arrives, however, they can re-form literally in minutes. We do our best to control them with spray (outside only) but because we are a pet friendly home, we prefer to use as little spray for the safety of your pets. I will address any issues of the silverware with the cleaning crew. After calling us multiple times about the TV because you chose not to read the instructions (as your wife indicated in the first phone call) and did not know how to use CableTV, my husband patiently lead you through it, you could have told us about the other issues and we would have had someone out there immediately to take care of it. I asked you several times "how is everything else? are you enjoying your stay" and each time you said everything was great. I could have told you the 'oil' in the hot tub is a harmless chemical reaction from brand of bromine and Ph with the hard water, so we are in the process of changing to a different brand. The water is sparkling clean, sanitized and balanced after every guest leaves. I have a reputation for being very responsive to my guests and my husband and I are always happy to take calls, and we had numerous calls from you regarding how to use the TV but no other issues. I do hope other guests look at all our other reviews and see there are no issues with cleanliness in other reviews. **Follow up note**. The top rack in the oven was put in crooked. Simply pulling it out and putting it back in solved the "not level" stove issue.

Perfect accommodations for our group of 7.

  • 4 of 5

Homey, older house with serene surroundings. The deer visited us almost daily. My granddaughter left her strawberries unattended for a short while on the picnic table on the front porch and the deer feasted on them! Close to town, easy access. It was great to have so many choices of DVDs and Netflix to keep the adults and teens entertained when we were at the house. Being a city girl I was concerned about the house not having central air, but no problem, the temperature was down in the 50's at night and low 80's during the day. Never got hot. Went walking in the neighborhood and found the neighbors to be very friendly. Will likely never rent a motel room again as long as I can find places like this one. Saved a bundle on food by preparing meals instead of eating out. Sue V from Fort Worth, TX

Ski Apache turn off
Car: necessary

A convenient, short walk to Up-Town and Mid-Town Ruidoso, located on the lower part of Brady Canyon Rd, our home is just a short walk to Sudderth Dr. and all the in town activities. Our home is just off Mechem but far removed from the noise of town. An easy drive to Inn of the Mountain Gods Casino, championship golf, and Ski Apache for great skiing and snowboarding. Set on a large, quiet lot, with the feeling of being out in the country, but less than 1/4 mile into town for restaurants, nightlife and shopping, 117 Brady Canyon is a perfect vacation spot.

Other Activities: Snowboarding; casino; racetrack, snow tubing, bumper boats, rock wall climbing; historic Lincoln County

Golf: Inn of the Mountain God - Experience New Mexico golf at its finest on one of the most spectacular golf courses in the country. Nestled among tall pine trees under the majestic Sierra Blanca Peak is the impressive Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort Championship Golf Course. Designed by Ted Robinson, this New Mexico Golf course features an island fairway as well as fast breaking greens that are not only beautiful to see, but also quite challenging to play. Come see why our Championship Golf Course recently garnered a top spot in Golf Digest’s “Top 40 Casino Golf Courses” ranking (Rated 23rd)!

The Links at Sierra Blanca is at 6,900 feet, where you will experience a blend of Scottish style golf and traditional mountain golf on our par 72 championship layout.

A first class practice facility offering a 40,000 square foot driving range tee, 18,000 square foot putting green complete with chipping and bunker areas will allow you to have the perfect practice session or just a quick warm up. PGA Professionals are on staff for all your lesson needs.

Ski: Ski Apache, often said to be some of the best warm weather skiing in the US, is nearby. About 4 miles to the Ski Apache turn off on Mecham, Brady Canyon home is easily one of the more convenient homes to both Ski Apache and for relaxing afterwards at a restaurant or pub in Ruidoso without having to drive out of the way.
