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 an athletic club(RAC) 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.
