Property description


Our home is a 2,200 square foot rustic log cabin located close to the Lincoln National Forest recreation area, downtown Ruidoso, and Ski Apache. It has a hot tub on the second level deck and also a third story sleeping loft for kids. The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet, with daily deer sightings in the yard.

The home has a master bedroom with king, full bathroom attached, along with two other bedrooms (one king, one queen size beds) located down the hall with a full hallway bathroom nearby. The loft easily fits three more beds and TV area. The main living area and kitchen are located on the second story and are accessible from a stairway in the garage/entry area and a much shorter back-door entrance through the master bedroom from where the driveway curls around the house. Downstairs is a game room with extra sleeping (full-size bed & futon) plus pool/air hockey table for the kids.

Thank you for considering our lovely home. Please be sure to check the calendar for availability, and email me to receive an exact quote or to answer any questions you may have.
