                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: I bought this house to stay in while I travel around the southeast part of NM for my job. There is limitless outdoor activites right outside the door. It is a short drive to many nearby cities like Roswell, Carlsbad,and Cloudcroft, Bring your skis, bikes,hiking boots or a good book and enjoy. Warm days and cool nights make it a year round get away.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ruidoso:
                  It is close to the Cedar Creek campground where hiking and biking are excellent. Bonito lake is only a few miles away for fishing, boating, hiking or photography. I love the quaint downtown stores and many restaurants. There is a nice athletic club to swim and work out as well. The ski area is 16 miles away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Right out the door and down the road you can access the hiking, biking trails down to the campground. I love sitting on the deck and watching the deer in the evening! I can go work in the surrounding cities and be back home for dinner on the deck instead of staying in hotels and eating out.
