About the property

Spacious! 2 King Beds, WiFi, Cable/Roku, Hot Tub

Surrounded by tall pines in a quite neighborhood in the Flume Canyon area of the Upper Canyon our old style Ruidoso cabin (not a double wide, not a modular) is Very comfortable, clean and roomy! Our home is great location for a family or friends to gather to enjoy the sparkling clean, super secluded steamy eight person hot tub after a day of skiing, snowboarding, shopping, golf or site seeing. We have free secured WiFi, three TV's, a large deck to enjoy your coffee early in the morning while you watch the deer, or bbq with family and friends outside. Our cabin is a pleasant walk or quick drive into Up-Town or Mid-Town Ruidoso's cafe's, restaurants, shopping and nightlife; or enjoy a short walk to and through the historic Upper Canyon. Just a quick drive to the casino where you can rent paddle boats, dine, golf or gamble (about 3 miles) and easy drive to Ski Apache turn off (about 5 miles)

Our home features two spacious bedrooms, each with very comfortable king beds and flat screen TV's for viewing movies on provided ROKU or DVD players. We use only 100% cotton sheets and blankets for your comfort and plenty of pillows to use.

We have two bathrooms - one a full bath in the master bedroom with two sinks; the other with an over sized shower and dressing area, two sinks and heat lamps for your relaxation.

A fully equipped kitchen has everything you need. We provide Keurig K-Cup and regular coffee maker for your convenience.

The family room has a sofa and loveseat, 50" flat screen TV with Cable TV and ROKU so you have 1000's of TV shows and free movies to choose from.

Full size washer and dryer, plus plenty of towels for your use.

Check-in (standard is 3pm) and check-out times (standard is 11 am) are flexible. Remember, this is not a hotel, you're dealing private owners so if you want to leave later, as long as no one is coming in after you, that works for us, just let me know. If someone is checking in, our cleaning crew needs to get in there so the standard check out time will apply. If you want to arrive early, check with me first. If the cleaning crew is finished, you are welcome to check in early.

Our home is an old style Ruidoso cabin and has plenty of space inside and out. It is not a modular home. We are picky about keeping it clean and comfortable and our cabin has everything you need to enjoy your vacation. However, If you are looking for something upscale and fancy, there are some beautiful homes available in a higher price range you can look into on this site.

About Doris

I manage this property for my son. He is in the US Air Force and stationed overseas. He bought this property in November 2012 because he loves spending time in Ruidoso when he has leave and can come home to relax and visit with friends and family. We hope you enjoy the home and the Village as much as we do. Doris

Doris' House is Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

My first time booking a house so was nervous. The house was so cozy and spacious. Bed super comfortable. Instructions very clear and helpful. Hot Tub AWESOME!! The morning deer gang... you better have their breakfast ready!!! Ate right out of my 7 year old daughter's hand. Location so convenient to all attractions. Ten thumbs up! Thank you VRBO and Doris for an amazing weekend getaway!

Nice place to stay that was pet friendly

  • 4 of 5

The place was clean, had nice flooring and felt homey. Kitchen was well stocked and had items we didn't expect to be there (hand mixer, cake pans) which we needed, a big plus! The heaters worked amazing and we loved that the hot tub was completely private. There were plenty of towels. We found some great new movies on the roku too. The decor was lovely and fitting for a cabin. Loved that we were able to bring our dog along and not have to board him. Some things I didn't like so much: noise in the cabin could easily be heard from outside, so we were constantly having to hush our kids for fear of interrupting the neighbors and they weren't super loud, just kids being kids. I didn't like that I had to wash the couch covers and a load of towels, but we were well aware of that before we booked and understand the time it takes for a cleaning crew to have to do that too, as my vacation time was just as valuable. I had some of my own laundry to do, as we packed light, and the last day felt like laundry day at home. We liked that there was instructions throughout the home for different things to avoid confusion. Overall, the cabin was great and we had a wonderful stay. We would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Hi John, I'm glad you enjoyed our cabin. Im so sorry you felt the need to keep the kids from being kids. There was no need to worry about noise. We have privacy fences on both sides of the cabin and the home across the street is also a rental. We have never had a noise complaint, even for late night bbq's. I wish you would have asked. Just to clarify about the laundry - we are not in a big rental pool through a management company with large cleaning staff. We simply ask that renters put a load of towels into the wash. Guests are not asked to wait for towels to dry, not asked to fold. Just toss in the dryer and go. We do encourage the guests who bring pets to wash the pet covers the night before on a quick cool wash, this way the morning laundry goes quickly. I often tell guests to toss in the wash, go to Tinas or Cornerstone (our two favorite breakfast places!!), enjoy breakfast, come back, toss the towels in the dryer, pack up the car and head out. That's what we do! Thanks again for being our guest, you are welcome back anytime.

Awesome Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Overall this was a great trip. The skiing this year had very good conditions. The house was accommodating, the beds were comfortable, the house was especially clean and neat when we arrived. The location is excellent, easy to find and close enough to everything without being right on top of all the town traffic and noise. Would highly recommend this cabin anytime.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our New Years in Ruidoso. The cabin is really larger than we thought it would be. The bedrooms comfortable, the house is clean and we loved the hot tub and the large bathrooms. Did not get to use the deck because of the weather but its really large and looks nice. Fed the deer and had two elk hanging out in the front yard for several hours. Was fun watching them. Nice location, not far from town. Quiet area. Definitely will rent from the Sullivan's again.

My Family Ruidoso Cabin Rental

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and her family met my wife and I at "Tall Pines" for a 6 day vacation and Christmas II. We came from San Diego and our daughter from Dallas (note - Ruidoso is not the midpoint between the two locations). The cabin proved to be outstanding and the owner/host took care of every detail. The unit was larger than expected, well-heated, and included plenty of amenities. The location is easy to find and central to all. It snowed a little on the first day and as we were leaving (almost a white-out). Deer are plentiful. The place is best suited for families and it would be option one for future NM Winter Vacations.
