About the property

If you want something on one level with easy access from your car to the front door then this place is for you. You can drive right up to it and enter without climbing any steps. There is plenty of parking for 3 vehicles. There is a carport for covered parking.

We have WiFi and an AT&T booster to boost the signal for AT&T cell phone users.

All rooms (including the kitchen) have ceiling fans and all windows are operational but we do have central heat and air.

A great place to relax and unwind. There is a small live creek that runs in front of it.

About Mary Edwards

We purchased this property on our 25 wedding anniversary. It turned out to be the best gift we ever gave each other.

Mary Edwards purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Mary Edwards chose Ruidoso

We have vacationed in this area for many, many years and have always loved the climate and quaintness of Ruidoso.

What makes this cabin unique

It's cool in the summer so a great way to escape the heat of your home location. The winters provide days of peaceful snowfall as well as weather pretty enough to enjoy the deck in the afternoons.

There are lots of deer in the area and they love to be fed. If you'd like to attract them up close, bring some deer corn (I always buy whole corn) and throw some out on the ground near the deck.

Beautiful, peaceful, fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

There are so many wonderful things to say about this property. This was not our first stay here nor will it be our last. Since our last stay they have added a/c, a beautiful sliding glass door to deck and a gorgeous wooden wall.

To start with this property is so easy to access and unload your belongings. You pull into covered parking and a door is right there to begin stairs to climb.

The decor is beautiful and comfortable. The beds are very comfortable. The house is stocked with everything you need.

The property is in a very quiet, peaceful area so the deer and turkeys are plentiful. We even fed one from our hand. There is deer corn available to feed them. There is also a bird feeder and hummingbird feeder. It was such a treat to watch all of nature while sitting on the beautiful deck.

This is such a great cabin. I highly recommend it.

Cowhide Creek visit

  • 4 of 5

My family (which consists of 4 adults/2 grandkids) stayed for 2days, 2 nights at this wonderful cabin. My grandkids had never been up in Ruidoso/Alto and it was all excitement for them to experience wildlife and small town flavor. The whole place was very well kept, and very clean and updated. My grandson stated it was much better than a hotel!!! We highly recommend a stay here if you are contemplating one in the near future. Very relaxing and accommodating.

Close to everything, lots of wildlife, and many extras

  • 5 of 5

I never leave reviews even if I’m impressed if that tells you anything. It’s well managed and maintained. So many animals. Had breakfast with my family, deer and turkeys every day. Loved how this home had so many amenities. Fireplace was wonderful as was WiFi and Netflix. Very clean an newly renovated. 5X better than a motel. If you’re not sure, stay here and you won’t be dispointed.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

For it being out first time in Rudioso, staying at the cowhide made things even better!the house was a perfect size for our little crew,and had everything and more than we expected. We had thanksgiving here, and the kitchen had all the utincilse we needed. All the rooms were just perfect and warm and cozy.

The outside of the house was beautiful. Enjoyed the patio deck for a night of grilling. LOVE LOVE LOVE that the deer were able to come up to us...we fed them!!

We definitely want to go back and if the cowhide is available, we are staying here again! THANK YOU MARY!
