    We really loved staying here. Cute, quaint, and perfect for what we were looking for. Unfortunately we had to cut our trip short due to an unexpected snow storm and not being able to get to the house by vehicle. Our vehicle was stuck in the ice/snow and we had to walk up the mountain using sleds to transport our belongings up and down. As there was no way to drive up to the house. So do not stay here if you do not have snow chains or snow tires during the winter. Even then the road going to the house is narrow, steep and curvy so be careful. Our vehicle actually slid down part of the road and there are no guard rails. We did not get to experience Ruidoso so we will come back. Just not during winter.

  • Didn’t even stay


    The owners need to do a better job of explaining that this cabin is on the side of a hill. When we arrived it was very cold and snowing. We barely made it up the hill. The whole area was covered in snow and we couldn’t even find the ground to walk to the front door. We got in after a bit. The cabin is cozy and charming but we decided that if Ruidoso received more snow we could possibly not get down the hill or slide off it. So we made it down and decided to stay in town. Totally disappointed.

  • Beautiful, peaceful and full of wildlife


    We really enjoyed our stay. Super clean and very quiet. The only thing that was not good was the queen bed mattress. The two of us were forced into the middle of it because there is no firmness. Quite uncomfortable. It should be replaced.

  • Great place to get away


    We love this cabin. It has the best view out the screened in porch of any place we have been to in the Ruidoso area. The owner is terrific to work with and is very helpful.

  • Could Have Been Better


    The property was pretty and had nice surroundings, but the grounds and the cabin could definitely have been cleaner. The most disappointing part was the beds. We took this trip after being extremely busy with moving, yet the mattresses were so bad that no one managed to get any sleep the two nights we were there. Other than that, it is a nice cabin and had all the amenities needed.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Renee, thanks for taking the time to review your stay. After reading your feedback, the homeowner wanted to share the following:
    - We have taken note of your comments about the cleanliness issue and will address this with our cleaner to ensure it doesn't happen again.
    - Regarding the mattresses, we replaced the queen mattress set in the master bedroom and the sofa sleeper in the living room before your visit. However, we understand that mattress preference is subjective and unique to each guest, and we apologize if you weren't as comfortable as you had hoped during your stay,
    - The only mattresses we have not replaced recently are the twin beds in the second bedroom. We will replace those as soon as we are able.
    Once again, thank you for your review and for choosing to stay with us.
