Central double sided fireplace divides kitchen and living area. Lodge-style front with huge windows for wild-life viewing, star-gazing and amazing sunset view. Covered front porch with chairs, grill/smoker in back right off from kitchen, binoculars, firepit sits just to the north of the cabin within feet of the Elk trail. Follow the trail up to the low ridge behind the cabin for awesome wildlife viewing. A small seasonal stream intersects part of the trail through the woods behind the cabin. Lincoln National Forrest access accross Hwy 82 within walking/ATV distance. Five minutes from downtown Cloudcroft for dining, shopping. Golf course within five miles, Cloudcroft hike to the famous train trestle, ice-skating, playground, skiing within two miles (or sledding at the hill in front of the cabin). There are utensils, plates and cooking supplies.
Unlike most other properties for rent in the Cloudcroft area, the cabin has no close neighbors, yet is close to town.
The cabin and the location were beautiful and very peaceful.
I would recommend having a complete pest inspection, however. There were a lot of flies inside the cabin, along with what appeared to be wood bugs and possibly green-colored termites.
The cabin was great. The thermostat was faulty and wouldn't heat past 60 degrees but we called and someone came almost immediately, replaced it with a new one. The location is very private and the view from the large windows is wonderful. We had a great a time!
We spent Christmas in this beautiful cabin and had the best experience. This cabin accommodated 4 adults and 4 kids perfectly. It was clean and stocked w/ everything we needed. They have games, toys and even a teepee in the "backyard" nestled between the trees that the kids absolutely loved! There's even a fire pit w/ seating on the property. They absolutely thought of everything to make the perfect stay. The owners were always available to answer my many questions.
We finally did venture out into town to go to Ski Cloudcroft. We tried both the skiing and snow tubing. Tubing was the most fun and the cheapest at $20 for two hours per person. The town has all kinds of cute shops.
I'd definitely recommend this property to anyone!!
Our group of 8 enjoyed this cabin and the property so much that the kids have requested that we come back. The kids play area inside the cabin included lots of games and toys that my 6 year old fell in love with including the teepee back behind the cabin. We will be renting again.
Absolutely a fabulous place! Clean, comfortable, and homey. My 85 year old Mother loves the views!!! Looks like we might have to make this a yearly thing! Thanks for a lovely vacay!!!
We had a great ten days there. The cabin was terrific, the wildlife viewing was great and the owner was very nice to work with.
We would love to go back.

Minutes from village living on five gorgeous acres. The perfect location to explore the entire southern region of New Mexico. You could begin at White Sands National Monument exploring over 300 acres of the world's largest reservoir of gypsum in the world (don't forget the sleds under the beds). Archaeology buff? How about Three Rivers Petroglyph National Recreation Site to discover over 21,000 ancient symbols? Next, there is the 8th wonder of the world...Carlsbad Caverns 870-foot underground caves of stalagmites, stalactites and Mexican free tail bats. Horseback riding through apple farms or Horse racing at Ruidoso downs all short scenic drives. The second largest ski mountain at ski Apache (or sled down our own 'beginner slope' at the cabin). An awesome drive just north will take you back in time to 'Billy the Kid country' Lincoln county. See where the real Lincoln county war was fought and follow the Kid up to his resting place at Fort Sumner and check out the Billy the Kid Museum. Check out the Chili capital of the world in Hatch, UFO's in Roswell, sing the blues with good eats in Silver City. OK take a breather and relax at the edge of Elephant Butte lake or get out on it and swim or sail the beautiful deep blue water. Step into a former metropolis of the wild west, eat authentic Mexican and check out the pirhana (that's right!) in Old Mesilla, Las Cruces. Don't forget this area is space central to our country's history. The Space Museum is a short drive and Sunspot Observatory is even closer. Watch migrating birds take it easy in the wetlands of Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge near Socorro. Speaking of taking it easy....you could just grab a local world class green chili burger and choose to stay on Elk Run's 5 acres hike up to the low ridge behind the cabin (especially at dusk) and watch Elk, deer and turkey make there way down the trail that runs directly below the ridge you are sitting on to watch this panoramic live view of nature in action. Drink hot chocolate on the covered porch or sit in front of the huge lodge window at night and sit amazed at how many stars you can actually see without city light interference! Not kidding stars behind stars!
