Access, Weather, and Wildlife


(Cool)
Cabin is set at 7500 feet, which averages about 8 degrees cooler in the summer from downtown, and 15 degrees cooler than the El Paso/Albuquerque/Lubbock southwest! Visitors from the Dallas or Houston area will notice that while Sandy's Place is in the mountains, it still carries LOW humidity.

(Access)
Sandy's Cottage is easily accessed from US 70 through downtown Ruidoso, New Mexico--yet retains it's quiet charm off a gravel access road that accommodates two full-time residences and this home. Easy accessibility in spring, summer, and fall by any vehicle: winter months might require 4-wheel drive depending on conditions.

(Wildlife)
Deer, raccoons, elk (sometimes), and bear daily attractions: Sandy's Cottage has two deer troughs--some female deers will eat out of your hand!


To our guests


Sandy's Cottage is a quiet cabin retreat in the mountains of Ruidoso, New Mexico. We are looking for visitors that will respect the environs and the full-time neighbors that live in the area. If you are looking for a quiet spot to enjoy the cool air, the native wildlife, yet accessibility to shopping/casinos (3), racetrack, golf, and over 25 restaurants all within ten minutes from Sandy's Cottage--then, Sandy's Cottage is for you. Pets: Sandy's Cottage will accept small pets (cats, dogs). Rentor(s) are responsible for clean ups or any damage done to Sandy's Cottage as a result. Curfew: We ask that all rentors respect a midnight 'curfew' as far as outdoor activities at Sandy's Cottage to respect the other neighbors that live adjacent. Smoking: There is no smoking in Sandy's Place, or outside on the deck The latter is a Village of Ruidoso ordinance.
