About Pati Hunter

We are a Texas family who has owned the home for many years. Originally purchased by parents in the late 70s. Much remodeling and updating . The house has been part of our family and has provided wonderful memories over the years.

Pati Hunter purchased this house in 1979

Why Pati Hunter chose New Mexico

Ruidoso is a wonderful place to visit year round. It is full of summer and winter activities such as golf, hiking, horseback riding, skiing, and snowmobiling. It is a quaint town for shopping and dining, and the beautiful Inn of the Mountain Gods on the Apache Indian Reservation is 10 minutes from the house. Horse Racing (season June - Labor Day). Casinos both at racetrack & Inn of the Mountain Gods.

What makes this house unique

At Golden Bear Lodge you can completely relax, sit out on the deck and listen to the wind in the trees. Or, you can take part in one of the many activities located near by. It is an ideal vacation spot for families or friends looking for quality time and fun for all.

Our whole experience was amazing. There was someone on duty in case we needed anything, to show us around the property etc. The owner is extremely flexible to accomodate our arrvial and departure. The cabin is spacious and beautiful. Location is great, just an incredible overall experience. We were so thankful they offered this home.

A great cabin for large families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Golden Bear Lodge for the Memorial weekend. It was so spacious for our family. We had 6 adults and 5 kids and there was plenty of room with room to spare. We will gladly choose this cabin in the future if is it is open.
