About John and Stephanie

We live full time in Austin, Texas and love to travel!

John and Stephanie purchased this cabin in 2015

Why John and Stephanie chose Ruidoso

We fell in love with this property while renting a house nearby. Soon after touring the house we knew we would enjoy making memories here for years to come.

What makes this cabin unique

LARGE house that can sleep a great group and allow them to eat, drink and be merry without being split up. TONS of entertaining space for kids and adults alike. We don't charge extra for more people and pets are welcome for a small additional fee.

Great space, fun atmosphere

  • 4 of 5

There were 16 of us and we had a blast! We particularly liked the large common area with the pool table, fire place (with plenty of firewood) and dining table big enough to fit everyone. Kitchen was stocked with enough dinnerware and cookware that we had no problem serving Thanksgiving dinner. The cabin was close to downtown shopping and entertainment (loved Win Place Show) and close enough for a drive up to the ski resort (no snow yet) and an afternoon of fishing. Rating is just shy of 5 stars because the house was pretty dusty and some of the light fixtures required special bulbs that were not in the supply storage. Also missing were extra dish towels and dish cloths (which we bought and left.) I highly recommend this cabin for groups with 8-9 kiddos. Thank you for letting us stay with you!

Owner's Response: Bummer! We strive for five * each time! I will be sure that we add some more dish towels and bulbs in the supply cabinet/garage. Dusting is a constant battle in the mountains and will update the frequency as well. Look forward to having you guys back.

Heaven in the Mountains!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Mountain Hounds Lodge is by far the best rental I've stayed at to date. John (the owner) was responsive and always followed up in a timely manner. The home is packed with amenities like kitchenware, board games, towels, and bikes, among many others. The beds were extremely comfortable and the room with the bunk beds was a plus for the kids to have their own space. We had such a wonderful time and I would highly recommend a weekend stay at Mountain Hounds Lodge to anyone interested. I can't wait to return!

Cox Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your retreat! There was plenty of room, and the neighborhood was absolutely beautiful and peaceful. It was really comfortable and we intend to go back. We have only one suggestion. The guest bathroom near the main kitchen needs to be thoroughly cleaned. It was not terrible, but there is some grime build up in the corners and there were quite a few cobwebs throughout the rest of the house. Other than that, it was perfect. I will also say, being a mountain retreat, it is possible that my expectations are a little over reaching, but it was not a big enough deal for my family to make a big deal over, I just thought the owners may want to know in case they would like to make improvements.

Good Location

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed with essentials. Everything worked as advertised. Plenty of room for the kids. Just one caveat, the mountain behind the cabin is private property even though there is no fence or posted signs. Resident was nice enough to give us the heads up after the 5 kids were attempting to go to the top of the mountain.

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The cabin had plenty of space and the owners provided everything you would need to have a great stay. Our large extended family had an outstanding time! The town of Ruidoso has a lot of great little shops and delicious places to eat. The weather was great and the locals are also very friendly and helpful. We definitely plan on coming back.

Our sons and families gathered here for the weekend and enjoyed plenty of space in comfort. Large deck area and the grandchildren really enjoyed the hot tub and pool table. Good location and a lot of options close by. Thank you for sharing your large home with us!
