Take your cleaning supplies!!!

  • 1 of 5

Elk Run was a beautiful house in a magnificent location. We would love to stay again. But......

*The refrigerator was not clean

*None of the furniture had been dusted in a very long time

*My grandson dropped a book between the bed and wall and I was appalled at the many layers of dust under the beds.

*You could write your name in the dust on the mirror-it was that dusty

*Sofa cushions need to be cleaned under-

If this beautiful rental property belonged to me, I would want to know it was being cleaned properly for the next guest.

Great summer trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here during the summer of 2017 with our two boys (7&2) and had a wonderful time. Great location- quick drive to town, but far away enough to feel private. House itself was terrific and one of the nicer spots around Cloudcroft- as advertised, clean, plenty of space, nicely appointed. Saw elk, turkey and humming birds from the front porch. If your looking for a spot near Cloudcroft, but with a little space to breath, this is a good spot. I'd definitely stay here again.

We loved the cabin and will be coming back in the future.

  • 5 of 5

The amount of wildlife and beautiful scenery around the cabin were breathtaking. The cabin was very cozy. There were a few more bugs in the cabin than we would have liked but that's to be expected in the woods. There were elk everywhere and we also saw some wild turkey when we went exploring on the property. We stayed 3 nights and only left the property once. Overall it was a great experience and we would highly recommend.

Great secluded getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lots to do in the area. Saw deer and elk from the cabin. Very quiet and the sky is full of stars.

Minutes from village living on five gorgeous acres. The perfect location to explore the entire southern region of New Mexico. You could begin at White Sands National Monument exploring over 300 acres of the world's largest reservoir of gypsum in the world (don't forget the sleds under the beds). Archaeology buff? How about Three Rivers Petroglyph National Recreation Site to discover over 21,000 ancient symbols? Next, there is the 8th wonder of the world...Carlsbad Caverns 870-foot underground caves of stalagmites, stalactites and Mexican free tail bats. Horseback riding through apple farms or Horse racing at Ruidoso downs all short scenic drives. The second largest ski mountain at ski Apache (or sled down our own 'beginner slope' at the cabin). An awesome drive just north will take you back in time to 'Billy the Kid country' Lincoln county. See where the real Lincoln county war was fought and follow the Kid up to his resting place at Fort Sumner and check out the Billy the Kid Museum. Check out the Chili capital of the world in Hatch, UFO's in Roswell, sing the blues with good eats in Silver City. OK take a breather and relax at the edge of Elephant Butte lake or get out on it and swim or sail the beautiful deep blue water. Step into a former metropolis of the wild west, eat authentic Mexican and check out the pirhana (that's right!) in Old Mesilla, Las Cruces. Don't forget this area is space central to our country's history. The Space Museum is a short drive and Sunspot Observatory is even closer. Watch migrating birds take it easy in the wetlands of Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge near Socorro. Speaking of taking it could just grab a local world class green chili burger and choose to stay on Elk Run's 5 acres hike up to the low ridge behind the cabin (especially at dusk) and watch Elk, deer and turkey make there way down the trail that runs directly below the ridge you are sitting on to watch this panoramic live view of nature in action. Drink hot chocolate on the covered porch or sit in front of the huge lodge window at night and sit amazed at how many stars you can actually see without city light interference! Not kidding stars behind stars!
