Photos and Description of this Ruidoso holiday cabin

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

The cabin sits in a Ruidoso residential neighborhood, conveniently located to all Ruidoso has to offer. This cabin has excellent views of Sierra Blanca from the front porch and dining room. This cabin is located conveniently to midtown and is only three miles from ski run road. It is only minutes from the Lincoln National Forest and is frequently visited by deer.

The front porch provides a hot tub with a straight on view of Sierra Blanca, a porch swing, and a charcoal grill. After entering the cabin, the living room is directly to the left and offers a nice flatscreen TV, a wood stove that heats the upstairs, a sleeper sofa and sectional sofa. To the right of the front door is the dining area, a full bathroom with a washer and dryer as well for your convenience, and the kitchen. The three bedrooms are all downstairs. Two of the bedrooms have king size beds, and the smaller bedroom has a full bed. A full bathroom is located in the hall between them.

Our family had a lot of fun, we had an amazing experience staying in the lovely cabin. We got more that we expect, the cabin was very clean and it felt cozy. Perfect for the relaxed weekend we were looking for. I will definitely recommend it and in the future if it's still for rent will definitely rent it again.

NO Views & Dark

  • 1 of 5

We chose this house for the "Awesome Views" and there were NONE! Sierra Blanca is visible for a few feet between houses across the street, with power lines across what you do see. Even the kitchen window facing the opposite direction had a power pole and wires as its view. We used to live in western mountains and really wanted to enjoy a vista again, so felt the description was very misleading.

It's rather old and dark, small rooms, old appliances, etc, but we might have dealt with that if the location had been as promised. We ended up staying with friends who had rented a house at the same time. (Owner did refund a small amount (some of the fees) when we did not stay there.)

Watch out on the site for all the extra fees; they can make what is supposed to be an inexpensive rental end up costing twice as much!

Dirty, disgusting, worse cabin ever. Pictures are also deceiving, they were probably taken 10 years ago. Girls hair and spider webs EVERYWHERE! Not kidding, hair on the floors, pillows, counters, table and spider webs on the ceeling fans, walls, inside and outside. Under general it says: paper towels, toilet paper, shampoo. More like: 1 paper towel roll, 2 rolls of toilet paper and NO shampoo. Jacuzzi water looked so dirty I just couldnt get in. Dishes were dirty, we had to wash them again. Two of the bedrooms didnt have remotes for the tvs and one of them had a remote that will turn on/off tv, old tv with a vcr integrated, and thats all the remote did. I promissed the other parties they would have working tvs in their rooms and now I have to give them money back. I had to buy a remote for the dvd player in the living room, trash bags, dish washer soap, paper towels and toilet paper. I still got the receipts. And the customer service, not good. They have a weird door knob and I called the girl to tell her it wasnt working. I called her at 9 am and it sounded like I woke her up and she wasnt happy about it. Her tone was so rude I ended up hanging up on her. We also had an unwanted guest eating our food, a mouse! I got proof of everything Im saying and I am considering reporting the issue with the BBB. I dont know who left the previous reviews, but they dont make sense once you get here. They're selling the property, good luck with that. This place is also very noisy and needs a lot of maintenance. I wouldnt stay here again even if it was free.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, people can write whatever they want in a review: fact or fiction. My main response is to encourage potential guests to consider other consistent reviews as a more reliable indicator about this home. 1) The house is cleaned by a professional cleaning service before each guest's arrival. 2) The hot tub is maintained on a weekly basis by a professional spa technician. 3) I received a phone call from the guest telling me the front door lock was broken and they wouldn't be able to lock the door. I attempted to explain how to enter the code and then turn the lock so they would be able to lock it properly when she hung up. Nothing was mentioned about any other problems they had with the house. If so, I would have sent someone over to try to address the issues if possible. 4) This is an older home, and it has imperfections. If you're looking for new and perfect, choose another home. It is a good value for the rental amount and number of guests. The photos are current.

Overall the property is in good shape.

  • 2 of 5

Overall the cabin was fine, the bottom bathroom needs work in and around the tub. I know the majority of the time its considerably cooler in the mountains but, during our stay it was in the ninety's and the one small window unit along with the box and ceiling fan's aren't enough to even make the cabin remotely comfortable.

We had a wonderful experience staying at this property. This was our first time renting a lodge and had no idea what to expect. The place was perfect, everything we needed was there. We loved the location, the area was great, the people around very nice. Loves having access to the hot tub. We have nothing but great things to say about our stay. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

Perfect cabin for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our weekend getaway to ruidoso. The furnishings were nice, the beds were comfortable, and the jacuzzi was perfect after a long day of fishing.
