About Lorena Maddox

My husband and I dedicate ourselves to raise our sons. We live in the city and bought this mountain cabin retreat for us and our boys to go to enjoy the outdoors and to have time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Lorena Maddox purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Lorena Maddox chose Ruidoso

We chose to buy this vacation home because we desired for our sons to learn about mountain - outdoor living, like horse back riding, fishing at the lakes, climbing pine trees, breathing clean air, looking at the night stars without polluted skies, and to enjoy the quietness of the mountain. We particularly chose this cabin because it is located at the top of a hill and provides a beautiful view of the forest and the Sierra Blanca Mountain. Also, it faces west, therefore, having remodeled and put all glass windows and doors on this west side, we enjoy the sun all day warming us as we cuddle on the living room couches to read a book or sit at the table playing board games.

What makes this cabin unique

Our family loves this cabin because it is inviting, pretty, and peaceful. Our cabin is very family friendly.

Very peaceful, relaxing area close to down town.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very nice, clean and comfortable. Everything you need was available. We had no problems with anything inside the cabin. Everything worked just fine.

We didn't get to utilize the hot tube or the bbq pit. But sitting out on the deck after the sun goes down is so peace full and relaxing. Didn't want to leave. The owner was super and was available if needed. Lorena you have a beautiful cabin, Thanks for letting us Texans enjoy your cabin and a little peace of New Mexico. We will be calling you for next year. Thank You. Robert & Debra B.

Amazing views, cozy, clean, great price.

  • 5 of 5

Amazingly comfortable. Views in the morning and at night were amazing. You can sleep under the stars. We had a party of 6 and could have still had room for more. It was well kept with wonderful amenities. Lorena was super helpful and always got back to me right away. Will stay here again.

Comfortable cabin, all the needed amenities. Beds very comfortable. Very private and peaceful. Having 2 showers helped a lot when we had guests. Loved feeding the deer in the mornings. Close to town and a grocery store. Cabin was very clean when we arrived.
