    There were a couple of things that were off from the listing of the house, two of the beds the ones in the lower level were in very bad condition one of them was broken and the other one was very loose. Our family had to sleep on those beds for a night however for the second night they did replace one of the beds the one that was very poor and broken. Also the sheets on the beds didn’t had that fresh crispy smell so I would doubt that they were washed, good thing was they did had washer and dryer so we washed them on our own. Although we did have a couple of difficulties on our stay the owner was very nice and stayed in communication throughout the whole stay. Very nice lady! Thank you for everything! They had a nice living room, heater worked fine, two bathrooms as listed, they also have WiFi as listed! Overall I am happy with the stay just that one problem that we had with the beds! It’s a great house I really loved their farmhouse/coca cola decorations!!!

    Manager's Response:
    Diana, the homeowner would like to share the following message:

    "I’m so glad that you chose our family cabin and were overall pleased with your stay. I’m so sorry about the situation with the beds, that’s unacceptable. I’m glad that I could get a brand new bed delivered to you within 4 hours! And, that the other bed was fixed within 24 hours. Again, I’m sorry about that. Often we use fragrance-free laundry soap for guests with allergies. But, I agree that I personally love the smell of fragrances in my detergent! The housekeeper confirmed they were washed before your check-in. I would never want a guest to have a less than wonderful experience and I'm so thankful you let us know about the problems of your stay. Thank you!"

    My family and I had a wonderful and restful weekend at this cabin. The cabin was spacious for our group (12 total) with lots of room to spare. We enjoyed the sitting nook near the kitchen and the large family style table. We were able to sit comfortably with one another. The rooms were also spacious and comfortable. Aside from sitting in the large living room, we spent our time outside sitting at the beautiful patio. My family and I can’t stop talking about the wonderful time we had together. Also, the host was amazing. They were readily available to answer any questions we had and offered suggestions. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Ruidoso.

    We had a wonderful stay! The interior pictures of the home are perfect representations of what you can expect. We were not disappointed at all! The exterior photos are accurate, but just don't do the property justice. You have to experience the home in person to appreciate its beauty. The full picture of the home is not the door you're most likely to enter. You will probably be entering through the door on the 2nd floor deck that overlooks the beautiful grounds. We spent many hours visiting on the deck admiring the scenery and wildlife. The home is situated on a hill in a hilly neighborhood that is both beautiful and quiet, yet a very short drive from everything (downtown, groceries, etc). I'm shocked that this property doesn't have a string of 5 star reviews. It appears to be a well-kept secret. We booked on very short notice (a few days in advance) and feel fortunate that this place was available. I would definitely recommend it and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. The hostess was readily available and happy to help however she could. If you're on the fence wondering if this is a nice place to stay, don't hesitate! If you like the pictures, you will love it when you see it in person.

One morning we were sitting out on the deck drinking coffee, and were pleasantly surprised to see a dozen humming birds, a couple of squirrels, and a cute little wood pecker. When it snows, this place is breathtakingly beautiful! We have made a family tradition of sledding down the driveway and building snowmen with our kids!

    Let me start by saying it's one the best places I have stayed in Ruidoso. I have visited Ruidoso many times over many years and feel like I finally found a hidden gem. I have stayed at multiple different places including hotels, motels, Airbnb, and cottages. But this cabin has been by far the best place. I being a picky traveler, want the comfort of a hotel but still want to feel at home without the corporate feel. This cabin has it all. It has lots of bright light with lots of windows and is nestled in the mountains of Ruidoso with lots of wildlife and natural beauty all around. You can even enjoy views of Sierra Blanca from the top of the mountain!! You will not be disappointed with the host. They are very friendly, accommodating, and answered all of my MANY questions. This place is spotless clean just the way I like it. I would highly recommended this place to everyone who is visiting Ruidoso to either enjoy the mountains in the summer or skiing in the winter or someone who just wants to get way from the craziness of a busy life. It has it all. There was plenty of space for me, all my kids and my aging parents!!! They enjoyed hiking, sledding down the mountain in the snow, watching the wildlife, and just sipping hot chocolate from the beautiful back deck.
