    Amazing Cabin

    Reviewed by: Inspire49380718038 on

    Comment:

    This place was absolutely breathtaking. The views were amazing as was the interior. We had 10 people in a work retreat and everyone had a bed. Rob was amazing and walked us through the whole house when we arrived.There was a 10 mile hiking trail right outside the cabin as well so great for any hikers. Would definitely visit again!

    We loved it! Ample space, totally quiet, lots of windows with great views, the balcony/deck access from every bedroom, shuffleboard! Well-stocked w/ towels, dishes, cookware. Old and sentimental, but very well kept and updated in just the right spots. The deck was newly re-done (great job!) - huge, ample deck chairs & tables, great grill. The property manager was super nice and helpful. Our family had a great time - well worth the $'s. Loved our choice!!!! Would book it again without thinking twice.

    Manager's Response:
    Sue, thank you for your review. This homeowner has asked us to pass along the following response:

    "Thank you for staying with us and providing your feedback! We apologize for the minor plumbing issue that occurred during your stay, and it has been completely resolved since your check-out. As to the location of the fire extinguisher. We positioned it so it is near to the bathroom and the two bedrooms. It is positioned low enough so a shorter person can reach. I do believe we have it positioned at the best place if we should ever have to use it. As to the repairs, this house was built in 1964 and we are fixing and repairing all the time, to ensure it is the best quality for all of our guests. We are always glad to hear from our guests, so we can continue to improve!"

    Best, the Evolve Team

    House nice setup, needs thorough cleaning, updates

    Reviewed by: Paul G. on

    Comment:

    Rob was a very friendly person, available if we needed him. The house had a nice size and setup. If you are staying in July or August just be aware the house does not have A/C, which we knew about upfront, but wanted something with a great view. This house does have a great view. We have stayed 5 times in previous years at other homes close to this one, same time of year, approximately mid to late July with no a/c in a couple of them. We had no problem with the use of fans to help circulate the air and we were comfortable. This home has all bedrooms, living areas, and huge back deck facing west. Even with the fans, we were very uncomfortable inside and on deck after 1 pm. At night the bedrooms and living area did not cool down until10 pm to 2 am. Weather turned out to be hotter than was predicted, and the outside deck was unusable until after 6:30-7 pm. Outside master bedroom deck was good, we were able to use it, but smaller in size than main deck. The house needs a thorough cleaning; wall switches, kitchen cabinets, pulls, appliances all were grimy to the touch and the hard surface floors needed a good cleaning. They had spills, food along edges, under cabinets and under the recliner. I found two pills in the master bath dressing area, under the sink. Sheets, pillowcases and bath towels had all been washed, a couple of quilts in the upstairs bedrooms had bloodstains on them. Found spiders in one king bed upstairs and cobwebs on bar lamp downstairs and a couple of other areas. Pedestal sinks in two upstairs bathrooms did not hold toiletries and there was not another place to place these except on the toilet seat or tank. One shower head upstairs needs to be replaced, it did not clean soap out of hair or off body. There was a rust stain on the shower floor and when you first turn on the water rust came out of the pipes. All sliding glass doors and the kitchen door do not close all the way, gaps at the bottom and/or top. Some little bugs in bathrooms and dead ants on the floor by the front door. We did like the privacy of the location, and it was convenient to shopping, restaurants and trails. We enjoyed the wildlife that came several times a day; deer, elk, chipmunks.

    Manager's Response:
    Paul, we're glad you enjoyed your stay overall! The home can get warm in the afternoon, depending on cloud cover. We're sorry you felt uncomfortable during your stay. The homeowners have pull-down sunscreens in the living room to help with the heat from the sun. They are also adding pull-down sunscreen shades in the upstairs bedroom that faces north. In the upstairs bedroom that faces south, and the two bedrooms downstairs, they have lined curtains to help keep the sun out. The master bedroom is shaded. They have added new windows in the hall upstairs and downstairs that can open and pull the draft through the home for additional cooling. There are also glass shelves installed in the bathroom to set your toiletries down. As for the other issues you've mentioned, the owners will be addressing them so future guests can be assured a most comfortable stay. As evidenced by past reviews, we're more than confident this home will continue to host many satisfied guests! Best, the Evolve Team

    Cabin was everything and more, We could not have been more pleased! We had booked this cabin for a family vacation to spend with the parents. We had 10 in the group. The cabin was spacious, very clean, and the deck with mountain view was amazing. Our host, Rob was very gracious and accommodating, he was there when we arrived, showed us around the home and said to call if we needed anything! The shuffle board was a hit with the group, and made for extra fun! Kitchen was large, bedrooms and baths were great, family area was nice and large, perfect cabin. Very close to town, just minutes to Main Street. Absolutely loved our stay, this will be the number 1 choice when we return to Ruidoso!! I would highly recommend! Stayed in May 2019

    Overall the perfect Christmas experience! The home was a perfect spot to spend our Christmas vacation. Great views of the Sierra Blanca mountain from almost every room in the home. Comfortable beds and heaters to stay warm and cozy. We stayed in and used the kitchen, we grilled, made s’mores over a small fire in a wood burning chimney outside and even got to play in the snow.

    Our stay was more than perfect, the truth on arrival we realized that it was a property a little out of place, the location in the middle of the forest is impressive, the wonderful views it offered were beyond the magic, our family of 14 people were fascinated with the place, it has a touch a little cozy, which makes you feel at home ...... Rob was very attentive with us, we can not really thank him for his efforts, his calls and his recommendations. Our visit was from November 30 to December 3, 2018, and we are considering renting it again by July 2019. OUR RATINGS: CLEANING ***** COMFORT ***** VIEWS ****** SECURITY ***** Overall Rating of This Property ***** Does this cabin offer rooms with a City View? YES AMAZING VIEWS Does this location offer a safe for guests to store valuables? YES Is this a quiet cabin? VERY QUIET PLACE

    We enjoyed our stay tremendously. Rob the caretaker was courteous and helpful. The house was spacious and the 5 kids were able to run around and have a blast. It is pretty high up on the mountain so you need to be prepared to drive dirt road, although it is pretty close to the grocery and conveniences. One bed was very hard but the rest were nice. It is a great place to stay for a family gathering. We had 13 total so plenty of beds, bathrooms and seating. The shuffle board table was a huge hit as well.

    We rented this property for the week of the 4th of July. It was perfect for our extended family of 9 adults and 5 children. Plenty of bedrooms, beds, and bathrooms for all. One of our favorite features was the large deck- it was perfect for the children to play on and explore, for meals, and for enjoying the incredible views and stargazing. The home had plenty of common space for us all to be together, but also offered places if someone wanted to be alone. Good hiking trails right across the road. It was convenient to go into town when we wanted to but also far enough to be quiet and secluded. We had fun with the shuffle board game in the living room. The home does not have AC and there were a couple of nights that it was hotter than we would have liked, but it wasn't terrible. Overall, a perfect property for our 4th of July getaway.

    Our family of 14 stayed in this home 2 nights. The size was perfect for us - comfortably slept 7 adults and 7 kids. The deck is amazing & provided lots of running room for the kids. Got to enjoy hummingbirds visiting the 4 or 5 feeders. Plenty of seating, with a covered patio for when it was raining. The home is built on a fairly steep slope with stairs leading to the front door, so it probably wouldn't be friendly towards those who have problems walking up & down stairs. For us, it was fine. The master bedroom was awesome - it had an adjustable bed that was incredibly comfortable. The kitchen is pretty well equipped. There are plenty of dishes and a dishwasher. Everything was in good working order. Overall, pretty clean. The caretaker was accommodating and easy-going - he has living quarters downstairs and was virtually invisible unless we needed something. There was adequate parking. we will be staying there soon.
