Property description

Welcome to our cabin! We have enjoyed many happy hours here and hope you will too.
It is secluded and located on the side of a mountain ridge with great views of the Capitan Mountain. Local folklore claim that Capitan Mountain is where Smokey the Bear was adopted by the US Forestry Service to be their mascot when a Forest ranger happened upon a bear stomping out a camp fire many years ago.
The home is professionally decorated with stainless appliances, granite countertops, 3 flatscreen TV's with dvd players and an extensive movie collection for your use. There is an I-pod docking station/cd player with speakers throughout.
The deer and elk regularly cross our property and the turkeys act as your alarm clock each morning.
Located just 3.3 miles North of the turn off to Apache Ski Mountain this cozy cabin is remote and secluded but close to everything. Shopping in Ruidoso is excellent and minutes away as is the Inn of The Mountain Gods resort and casino and Ruidoso Downs Race Track. Spencer Theater is 1.5 miles.

The elevation on the upper deck is 7,800 feet and the only sounds are the wind thru the pines. On a clear night you can see millions of stars that light up the cabin.
Level one is the bar and den with a two bedroom two bath suite, i.e. each bedroom has it’s own private shower/bath. The den sofa makes into a queen bed if needed. Bedroom #1 has a single and a twin bed, bedroom #2 on this level has a queen bed and access to the outdoors via a private entrance.
Level two is the kitchen and living area with a ½ bath. It is fully furnished and has modern appliances including filtered water, wifi, cable TV and ipod doc for your favorite music.
Level 3 is the Master Bedroom with a King bed and bath featuring a shower and jauczzi tub. All bedrooms have high end bedding and natural woven window shades.Total adult sleeping capacity is 7 or 9 if you use the sleeper sofa.
This is a truly amazing house for use in the winter/skiing/casino and summers cool days and nights. You'll find yourself wanting to return time and time again.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We loved the area so much that when we found this unique cabin and knew it was for us. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Ruidoso:
It is the most unique log cabin we have ever seen and it was love at first site. We had been looking for a long time for just the right property and this is it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
There are so many stars visible at night from the top deck and just hearing the wind thru the pines is enough, but there is also wildlife watching, hiking, shopping nearby and a wonderful variety of food at nearby resturants. We have a detailed listing at the cabin of all our favorites. Wildlife that's been seen from the cabin include: deer, elk, turkeys, squirrels, skunks, foxes. A mother bear with cubs was seen by one guest.. The birds in this area are colorful and abdundant with no short supply of hummingbirds during the summer months.
