Ruidoso Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The Texas Treehouse gets its name from being built on the side of the mountain. The views from the covered wrap around deck are spectacular.

This cozy log cabin was completed by the owners in 2000, and consists of 2400 sq. ft. The secluded property will require four wheel drive vehicles or chains in the winter however it is well worth the drive!

The loft has an awesome view and doubles as a bedroom with two twin beds as well as two sofas, TV and game table. Ceiling fans are throughout the cabin. Each of the three TV’s are accompanied with a DVD/video player. The corner rock fireplace in the great room can be seen from the loft, kitchen and dining areas.

Views of the valley, ponderosa pine and pinion trees are breath-taking. Deer and turkey are frequent visitors, elk and bear come by occasionally.

We do not allow smoking or pets in our home.

About Rhetta Riley

We own Clark Riley Insurance in Abernathy, Texas and I am a Realtor with Keller Williams Realty. We have two children who helped us clear the lot and build the cabin, so we have a lot of family pride in this cabin. Lots of friends and family helped through the two years it took us to complete the building. We love the mountains and all Mother Nature has to offer.

Rhetta Riley purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Rhetta Riley chose New Mexico

We had owned a smaller property in the same area before we built the cabin. We looked in other areas, but always felt the upper canyon area was home.

What makes this cabin unique

We love to relax and enjoy the mornings on the deck with coffee and a fresh baked muffin. The deer and turkey are always entertaining and of course the hummingbirds in their season. In skiing season, the hot tub relaxes those aching muscles that haven't been used in a while. Evenings on the deck or in the cabin are enjoyed reading, playing cards or just visiting with good friends.

Private Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Home was beautiful inside and out. Very private with a wonderful view of pines and mountains. We were a family of four, but it could easily accommodate several families. Saw lots of wildlife while sitting on the deck- deer, woodpecker, and hummingbirds. Wonderful time. Thank you for sharing your home.

What a wonderful getaway place!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful getaway place for our Labor Day weekend! Everything about the Texas Treehouse was even better than advertised! The cabin was immaculate, the kitchen was very workable, and the views were spectacular. In addition to the dozen or so hummingbirds that visited all day, we could even see part of the Inn of the Mountain God's fireworks display from the deck.

Wonderful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family greatly enjoyed this property. Views are amazing and loved the decks. We spent most of our time out there. We were visited by turkey, deer, and hummingbirds. Neighbors are not right on top of you. Nice privacy. Lovely property!

Beautiful views, quiet, spacious, clean. We would definitely come back here. It got warm during the day, but the fans helped.

Beautiful scenery

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this property were not deceiving. It was everything and more. The scenery was breathtaking. Deer came right up to the driveway and ate from our hands. Beds were comfortable. Cabin was amazing. I can't say enough about this place. Definitely will stay there again.

The pictures online don't do this place justice...

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience at the Texas Treehouse. First of all, the pictures don't do it justice. This place is so much nicer in person than can be seen from the pictures posted online, relatively updated and incredibly clean. Second of all, there are tons and tons of cabins in Ruidoso...but they are often slammed together without a view. This cabin is away from the majority of the cabins. There is privacy, an incredible view (which you CAN see in the pictures), and such a sense of peace and serenity! There are plenty of beds and couches, enough for people to spread out and find a place away from everyone else...but then again, there are lots of big common areas that allow everyone to get together and enjoy each others' company. The kitchen is very well-stocked for a cabin like this. The wood--burning stove brings in a rustic element and a whole lot of heat (which we very much appreciated!). There are plenty of extra blankets and towels, high speed WiFi, even a few family games. Had a great experience communicating with Rhetta; she answered all questions and was easy to get a hold of. We will definitely be back as often as possible!
