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

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful trip to Ruidoso. The house has all you need and more, the owner was super friendly and we will certainly return. We cooked for our big group, the house has a perfect table for everyone to gather around. And the hot tub made our sore muscles feel better!

Lots of beds, great deck

  • 4 of 5

This place had beds for everyone, which was great! I loved the big open windows, and my kids' favorite parts were the lofts. The deck is a fantastic size, we enjoyed having an outdoor hot tub, we liked having the bikes available and the ones we used worked well, having 4 bathrooms with showers was nice, and the pool table was in use constantly. Also, we really like the location - it seemed secluded even though there were other houses all around, and it was a short drive to town. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 for a few small issues. First, somehow I didn't receive the e-mail I needed with the entry code before hand and there was no service up at the house to be able to contact the owner and get it, so my husband went back down to contact him. He was super helpful when we did get a hold of him and had no further problems with that, and it only took about 20 minutes to get it resolved. The next couple of issues may just need to be addressed with the housekeeping/local contact - one of the show curtains had mold on it, one of the pots was rusty, and one of the bunk beds had been duck taped as a repair job and we couldn't use it (no big deal for us, the person that was going to use it moved to another bed). We rent a cabin every January, and overall we would recommend this place and keep it in our list for renting again!

Great place for great memories with a big family.

  • 5 of 5

My large family and I loved this cabin. It had everything and the owner (John) was very helpful in meeting our needs. We expected for it to snow ❄️ since we are from South Texas. But we didn’t get any 😢?. Since the cabins location is near local shops, Ruidoso Winter Park, Ski Apache and restaurants (Hall of Flame 🍔?)made everything a lot better. It’s was my family’s first time being in Ruidoso, NM. and it was a beautiful memory my family will never forget. A big thank you 🙏? .

Just right

The house was just right for our group. Plenty of room for everyone. If we go back to Ruidoso we will definitely book this house again.

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!
