About Kevin Hammon

Our Family is very big and very close. We love Ruidoso so much we had a wedding there. Our cabin is more that just a vacation get away. Its become a part of our family for get together s, holidays and traditions. We have had friends and guests stay there and everyone wants to come back.

Very unique in its location and very cozy. You will feel right at home as soon as you step into the front door.

Great weekend with the family

  • 5 of 5

Came here for Memorial weekend with the family, 4 adults and 10 kids. The cabin was better than we had expected it to be. Plenty of room for everyone and the views were breathtaking. Saw a few deer in the morning and hiked the trails. Downtown Alamogordo is a few minutes away in case you want to go for dinner or shop. Had no problems checking in and all utilities worked great. Loved the wrap around deck and just far away from everything to enjoy the area in peace. Will be back soon!!!!

Secluded cabin with amazing views.

  • 4 of 5

When booking this last minute trip, we considered several homes. We were about to book a different cabin which included a hot tub on the balcony. I’m so glad we found this gem of a cabin. I can’t imagine a home in the area having more beautiful views of the mountains than this place. Quiet and relaxing and also close to town. We loved our short stay.

Ruidoso Rock-Star House!

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything needed to get into "vacation" mode. Great kitchen/dining and comfortable bedrooms to relax. Their are so many balconies with great views it's actually hard to decide which is my favorite, although I think the Mule Deer prefer the one closest to the kitchen. The location is perfect since hiking is simply a matter of walking down the driveway to hit the trailhead leading to Lincoln National Forest. Kevin, the owner, is an absolute pleasure to work with and full of information about the area. We had a wonderful visit!

Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The home was very nice and very clean. We encountered no issued during our stay.

The internet speed was good. We were able to stream Netflix without any issues. There is no cable or satellite so make sure and bring a streaming device.

I highly recommend.

Amazing views, awesome home!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent Thanksgiving week at this wonderful mountain home. We have been to Ruidoso many, many times but this was by far our most enjoyable trip.

This home was spacious, clean, neat and the views from the three decks were absolutely awesome. The closeness to the entrance to the trails of the National Forest made it easy for family members to hike. Twenty to thirty deer showed up most every evening and our grandchildren had a blast feeding them apples.

The owner of this beautiful home is very accommodating and his response time to any issues is extremely prompt. He is quite professional and very pleasant to speak with.

I would recommend this property to anyone considering a trip to Ruidoso. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!

Owner's Response: It was so great having Ron and his family. I cant say enough how much we love having families like this stay at our cabin. He treated our place as if it was his own and we want them to come back any time. We had great communication if he ever needed anything and I encouraged him to call me with anything that he needed. I can not thank him enough for these kind words and I hope to see him at our place again.
