About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Casa de Angeles is located in the Lincoln National Forest just two miles off a main road in Ruidoso. Perched at the foot of a mountain on one and one-half acres, the quiet serenity of the surroundings make it a perfect getaway for couples or individuals looking for a retreat in nature. Cedar Creek runs throughout the property with the delightful sound cascading water falls. All the wildlife stop by for a delicious drink of cool water.

The cabin has one bedroom upstairs in the loft that accesses a private deck where deer, birds and other wildlife will pass by. The second bedroom is downstairs, making privacy for two couples. The cabin has central heat and air, ceiling fans and wood stove. Casa de Angeles was built in 2004 and is the owners' second home. They have furnished it in a way that makes you feel like it's your home too. The kitchen is fully stocked with staples and cookware making it easy to go to the store for the main items and prepare delicious meals in the comfort of your retreat. There's a washer/dryer supplied with eco-friendly products for your convenience.

The unique benefits at this Cabin: Casa de Angeles represents peace and tranquility. There's only one other cabin in sight. The cabin is stocked with everything you need to come in and make yourself at home. The deck in the back is the perfect perch to sip on your favorite beverage and watch the deer, elk or turkey go by. There's great hiking without driving anywhere but if you choose to go into town it's only 5 minutes. Best of all worlds.

As of 2017, the Casa now has cable and free wifi as well as air conditioning for your convenience and comfort.

About Russell and Beckie Forsyth

We are Russell and Beckie Forsyth from Austin, Texas. We have been visiting New Mexico...The Land of Enchantment for over 30 years thanks to friends that moved there. Summer 2001 was just too hot in Santa Fe so we checked the weather for the coolest spot in the state. It was Ruidoso. We drove in and fell in love with the community, the weather and the landscape. Over the next 5 years we kept visiting and visualizing our own home there. In 2006 we were blessed with selling a property in Austin that made it possible. Just when the money was there Casa Angeles was waiting for us...just as we had visualized with privacy, close to town, easy access and living water. We're so blessed!

Russell and Beckie Forsyth purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Russell and Beckie Forsyth chose Ruidoso

Our vision was to have a property that felt remote but wasn't. The tall pines, running creek and the privacy in a setting that was quiet were all things that made Casa Angeles the perfect place for us.

What makes this cabin unique

Casa Angeles represents peace and tranquility. There's only one other cabin in sight. The cabin is stocked with everything you need to come in and make yourself at home. The deck in the back is the perfect perch to sip on your favorite beverage and watch the deer, elk or turkey go by. There's great hiking without driving anywhere but if you choose to go into town it's only 5 minutes. Best of all worlds.

A little slice of heaven in the woods

  • 5 of 5

As the owners, this was our trip to work on the cabin. We did a deep clean, ordered new beds, scheduled work on the decks and cleaned the creek area that has a lot of water in it for this time of year. In the evenings, we enjoyed happy hour and the full moon from the upper deck and trips into town to enjoy the delicious New Mexican food. The weather was glorious!

I'd like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all the guests that have come and taken such good care of our mountain home.

Enjoyable Vacation Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Angeles was in a very quiet and relaxing neighborhood in the Lincoln National Forest. Beckie was extremely helpful with directions and details. The cabin is very clean, well-stocked and has everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed seeing 6 wild turkey out the front window the morning we were leaving and a few deer down the road. Thank you, Beckie and Russell, for sharing your casa with us.

Darling, quaint little place in a perfect secluded location.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Casa de Angeles. It was the perfect size for two for a romantic getaway. Would also be perfect to take our four kids. Everything was so clean and so cute, and we can't wait to stay here again in the future.

Ruidoso is a ski resort village but summers are perfect. Cool temperatures make for great nature outings of all kinds. You can also find museums, shopping, horse racing, theater among the past times. At the Casa it's peace and quiet with wildlife and a good book that are the best.

Hiking, walking and being in nature is the big attraction at Casa A. The silence of the secluded area with the sound of Cedar Creek as it falls over beautiful rocks make it a perfect place to contemplate life and journal your heart out. New Mexico enacts measures to protect their night sky, therefore, the star gazing is wonderful on clear nights. When you tire of the silence, you can watch movies or listen to music or go into town and shop, visit the museums or reserve a night at the Spencer Theatre.

Ruidoso installed a fabulous 18 hole disc golf course at Grindstone Lake. It's mountain golf at it's best. This course hosted the New Mexico Disc Golf Championships here in 2013. If you don't have your own discs, there's some at the casa to use during your stay.

Other Activities: shopping, snowboarding, wildlife viewing, spa, mini golf
