  • Cozy, quiet cottage

    "The area in which the cottage is located is very peaceful, which is what we were looking for as a break from big city life. The neighborhood is a mix of full-time and vacationing residents. The cottage reminded us of going to see grandma in that it's older yet homey and comfortable. The wraparound porch is a great place to hang out, and we enjoyed having our morning coffee and tea there while looking at the view. For most of our stay there was a constant cool breeze, which was great in that we could open up the screened windows and doors. It got a little toasty the final three days we were there, so the window AC unit was put to use in the early afternoon through mid-evening. Otherwise, the windows and doors were open. A ventilation fan in the bathroom is needed, but it's not something that is unmanageable. The owners are great communicators and responsive, something that is a big plus in our book. The breakfast table is a good spot for putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Our dogs enjoyed the stay, too, and made friends with two of the local dogs. There's great exercise in the form of walking to be had. Steep hills, so if you go down, you must walk back up. We enjoyed our daily walks and took different routes to see where we'd end up. There are many deer in the area. They come out in the early morning and early evening. They're part of the neighborhood, in that you'll see people in their yards and the deer will be nearby munching away on vegetation. We also liked the cottage's location because it is close to town without being in town. A short drive down the hill and we were in town. Glad for our stay."

  • Cozy-Clean Cabin

    "We enjoyed this cute cabin. Owners are easy to get ahold of. The cabin is clean and comfortable. Wish it had a better view of the mountains from the balcony. But we found wonderful views all over Ruidoso. We were greeted by deer many times. They ate right out of our hands. Lovely enjoyable place. I highly recommend it"

  • Loved the character

    "Our group had 4 adults and 2 kids and the split floorplan worked great for our group. We put the kids in a room off the lower living room so when they went to bed each night the adults would move to the upper living room and not have to worry about being noisy. The house is really cozy, comfortable and welcoming and the photos don't do it justice. It was bigger than I expected, too. The front deck is large and gets afternoon sun so we spent some nice afternoons hanging out there enjoying the view before the temperature drop at sunset drove us back inside. We went to Ski Apache to play in the snow one day and to White Sands another day which was a bit of a drive but easily doable as a day trip. The town of Ruidoso had some cute shops and a great pizza place called Cafe Rio. The house is fairly close to town and we saw a ton of deer on our drives in. Also saw a lot of woodpeckers and other birds around the house. The area is really quiet and while many of the neighbors had dogs, I only heard barking once (and it didn't last long). The owner was great and checked in with us throughout our visit to see if we needed anything. If we visit Ruidoso again, I would definitely stay here again."
