It was so clean! The only thing I would have to comment on is the brooms and vacuum, and the driveway. The dust pans were broke and I had to clean the vacuum out it was so full of yuck. The incline was very steep and my 15 passenger van had a very hard time getting up the driveway. We would not have been able to if it was icy. I did not see that on the VRBO when renting this specific cabin. But it all worked out. Thankful they have a washer! I had to do some wash because of the snow. Overall, we had a great stay!
This home was beautiful and very clean. Had everything we needed. The stairs getting to and from are very steep but that's how most of the places are...definitely get a workout! Enjoyed it very much and will stay in this same house again when we return. The town is so cute and people very friendly. Very relaxing and the weather was perfect! Couldn't ask for a better weekend!
We arrived to find our cabin had already been opened and ready for us. We walked in to find a beautiful, updated cabin. The cabin was clean and didn't smell dusty and dingy like some cabins tend to do. We were very pleased.
CONS: The cabin offers 4 beds, 3 of which we used. All 3 beds were HORRENDOUS. They are the thinnest, cheapest mattresses money could buy. We woke up every morning in utter pain. We even contemplated checking out a day early just avoid having to sleep on the beds again. There was a pregnant guest who slept in the King Size and had such a hard time with that bed. The couches (where all the movie watching takes place) were not comfortable either and has fabrics that poke through the couch and poke and stab you. There's a nice big flat screen teen mounted on the wall, however, no dvd player in the main "family room". We had to plug in the Playstation from upstairs. There's huge beautiful windows that are not covered and happen to be opposite tv. Forget watching tv in the day, the glare is too much. You can't even enjoy tv or an early movie. Also, please note that you'll need a 4 wheel drive to get up the drive way. It's short but very steep and there's burned tire marks on the drive way from previous guests. Our tires (not 4x4) are thinned out because of the driveway. Also, you'll need to stop at Walmart in Alamogordo to buy groceries, we learned the hard way. There's no grocery store up here and eating out gets really expensive. The cabin offers a beautiful kitchen to cook in. The cabin really was beautiful. Not secluded at all as we were under the impression from description which is what we were looking for. The cabin is right next to a bunch of other cabins so there was no exploring the wilderness from our cabin. Would have given more stars if the beds were at least half way decent.
All in all I'd recommend staying here. Hopefully the owners will invest in some new beds because that is enough to turn people away for a second visit and invest in some window tinting or curtains. If your looking for a clean, modern, cozy cabin near the town, this is your place!
This was a great cabin to home-base in for our Cloudcroft vacation! It was just like it appears in the photo, and was clean, spacious and a beautifully appointed. We loved the view and the deck, and the location. We didn't have kids with us, but thought the upstairs bedroom and loft area would have been perfect for them. Would definitely choose this cabin again.
Easy to reach, door already opened when we checked in. The front panel of windows produce a greenhouse effect, there are no window coverings and so the house remained hot during the day despite having 2 windows open and the ceiling fan running. The other 2 windows in the living room couldn't not be opened and therefore we could not take advantage of the cross ventilation.
Basic supplies including coffee and cleaning materials was provided. But you will need to bring your own bath soap, shampoo etc. Beds were comfortable.
The cabin was clean and comfortable. Great views, nice deck. Driveway is steep with rudimentary steps to get to the proper landing. Overall good experience.
I reserved this cabin for my honeymoon with my new hubby. It was a beautiful rental! The view from the living area was outstanding. You could see all the trees and the sun hits it just right in the morning. It's extremely quiet and peaceful with a great look at the stars from the porch at night, and the fireplace makes it perfectly cozy. It's a convenient location with a short drive to cloudcroft and a safe place to go for a leisurely stroll. It has a fully equipped kitchen, so it's really easy to prepare meals in if you so desire.
