About Lisa Haag

My husband and I live in the Houston area. We are avid pilots and live at an airport. We love to fly, ski, and travel. We have a dog and a cat that both travel with us. We own a business called Federal Wage and Labor Law Institute which makes and sells labor law posters.

Lisa Haag purchased this cabin in 1975

Why Lisa Haag chose New Mexico

Mark's family vacationed in Ruidoso from San Antonio throughout his childhood. He loved the quaintness of the town and the skiing. Not to metion some of the best horse racing is here and a beautiful new casino and resort. Ruidoso has something for everyone.

What makes this cabin unique

The location is convenient to the Ski Apach resort, The Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort and Casino, and Ruidoso Downs Horse Race Track. You can also walk only one street to enter the National Forest. The views are spectacular, and the mountain air is refreshing. This is truly a place to get away from it all.

Great Property! Will Book Again!

  • 5 of 5

We decided on a trip to Ruidoso....with one day notice! Lisa took care of our reservation request quickly and we left for Ruidoso the next morning. We spent quite a bit of time on the deck and even watched an elk in the next door neighbor's back yard. Cabin was cool and very comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The damage deposit was refunded promptly. Thank you Lisa. We will hopefully call again soon!

Not a bad place to be in early morning and evening.

  • 3 of 5

In summertime with temps around 90, only the living room stays cool. The rooms don't cool down until the late evening. The fans don't help. Otherwise it was enjoyable.

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a good time. Sorry it wasn't cool enough. Did you turn the air conditioner down in the living room?

Beautiful Mountain View

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this cabin just a few minutes of downtown Ruidoso! Very cozy, clean, and had everything we needed to spend a relaxing time during our holidays. The porch allows for a magnificent view of Ski Apache, and is the perfect place for a bbq enjoying the view and some wine!

The deer roam around that area and would even come to the porch and wonder around! Would definitely stay here again!

Nice cabin with great view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great getaway from the heat of south Texas at this fully equipped, very tidy cabin. We especially enjoyed the view of Sierra Blanca from the deck. Excellent sunset viewing! Fenced in yard below the cabin gave ample space for our 2 retrievers. Would love to return next summer.

Ruidoso retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property on the mountain side! We relaxed, enjoyed grilling on the deck and watching the wildlife (deer, raccoons and hummingbirds). Had everything we needed except maybe lounge chairs on the deck, though we did love the comfortable recliner and rocker in the living area. Speedy return of our damage deposit. We will definitely come back!
