                    Location of this property was not bad, pretty close to downtown and grocery stores. The unit was clean when we arrived. My only complain is that why do we have to ANY cleaning at checking out when we are already being charge a cleaning fee!

                    Manager response: Hi, Sara. I am really not sure where you are coming from. No one is ever required to clean the cabin before they leave. My maid service takes care of that. In order to clarify what you said, I called the management company to see what they told you. I understand they asked you to strip the beds that were slept in so that they would know which linens to wash. I find this to be a reasonable request. I also verified that you did not clean the cabin before you left and that it was in fact a huge mess. Also, I try to keep the cabin supplied with things like coffee and condiments. They were there for your and other guests' convenience and not for you to strip the cabin of. I find it very upsetting you would treat the cabin the way you did and then post negative remarks. My management team and I always go out of our way to make sure our guests are happy. I am not sure what happened to you to make you act the way you did, and I hope you don't do it to other VRBO owners in the future.

                    This worked out very well for us, with two adults, two kids and a dog. The interior of the cabin is an L-shaped kitchen/dining/living room with two bedrooms and a bathroom. It is not big (I would think with 6 it might be a little cramped) but it works well for a family of four. The location is good with easy but steep access. Cabin facilities are as described, everything is functional but fairly basic (note - this is not a fault), clean and simple. Best of all it is priced appropriately and the lack of a punitive pet deposit is greatly appreciated! The location works well for exploring the surrounding national forest. Communications with the owner and their local representative to clarify things and make arrangements for keys were all easy. We had a great break for a long weekend and would certainly consider going back again another time. As for wifi, it is nice sometimes to be somewhere without it. Cell phone/3G data reception with verizon was always good.

                    We really enjoyed our stay! The view was beautiful and it was very quiet and comfortable. We had two children with us who enjoyed the property as well. Much nicer than staying in a hotel. You definitely need 4-wheel drive or snow chains if you are there when it is going to snow because the house is up quite a ways. The property is centrally located enough to easily access local restaurants and shopping. We really appreciated the fully stocked kitchen and the washer and dryer as well as the fireplace which kept the house warm on cold evenings. Everything was very clean and ready when we arrived. There is a grocery store right at the bottom of the neighborhood which was convenient.

                    I was very happy with the cabin overall. Very clean, plenty of extra blankets for the cold. Washer and dryer were a great thing to have. Was just disappointed that there was no WiFi in the cabin. Overall excellent place to stay for a couple of days.

                    I had a great stay at this cabin. Everything was as advertised. Very neat, very well located, well furnished, great view. The landlady was also very easy to deal with. I am sure I will stay here again.

                    Great weekend with 4 adults. The fold out bed was comfortable for two people, the main bed was said to be very comfortable. The weekend rained on and off and the temp at the cabin was around 70 degrees so the A/C in the cabin wasn't necessary. Very quiet location no traffic to speak of. Only negative is the lack of gas BBQ grill, with the burn ban in place we couldn't use the charcoal grill. Great weekend we definitely recommend.

                    Manager response: I am glad you had a good time. Sorry about the burn ban. I will look into getting a gas grill in addition to the charcoal grill. Hope you will stay again. Lisa

                    My husband and I stayed at this wonderful cabin in the mountains. The area is very serene and beautiful. The quarters were just as promised. We especially enjoyed the view and the large wrap around deck. Also, snow in the area is great. Skiing was the best ever. We hope to return again soon!

                  Year Purchased: 1975

                  About: My husband and I live in the Houston area. We are avid pilots and live at an airport. We love to fly, ski, and travel. We have a dog and a cat that both travel with us. We own a business called Federal Wage and Labor Law Institute which makes and sells labor law posters.

                  Why Ruidoso:
                  Mark's family vacationed in Ruidoso from San Antonio throughout his childhood. He loved the quaintness of the town and the skiing. Not to metion some of the best horse racing is here and a beautiful new casino and resort. Ruidoso has something for everyone.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  The location is convenient to the Ski Apach resort, The Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort and Casino, and Ruidoso Downs Horse Race Track. You can also walk only one street to enter the National Forest. The views are spectacular, and the mountain air is refreshing. This is truly a place to get away from it all.
