About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

The Huston Family Cabin is located roughly 2.5 miles off of Mecham Drive up a scenic road alongside Cedar Creek. Sitting at an altitude of 7200+ feet, makes it an average of 5-10 degrees cooler than Mid-town. Nestled at the edge of the Lincoln National Forest, there is an abundance of wildlife including mule deer, elk, hummingbirds and the occasional bear. The large front deck allows for guests to sit outside and take-in the cool mountain air, all while enjoying the outdoors and the serenity of the mountains. For those families seeking peace and quiet and a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city or for couples seeking a weekend away, this cabin will meet your expectations.

The cabin has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. The master bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed and a wall-mount TV. The second bedroom has a set of twin/full bunk beds and a TV. The cabin has ceiling fans, heat via furnace and a wood burning stove. The Huston Family Cabin was purchased in 2009 for the owners’ second home as a retreat from the Texas heat. After many years of searching, this was the owners’ Heaven Sent cabin. The cabin has been newly refurnished for comfort and relaxation. The kitchen comes fully stocked with the necessary spices, utensils and cookware. There is a washer and dryer available upon request. Patio furniture and a grill are provided on the deck. Coffee, hot chocolate, hummingbird and wildlife feed are provided.

There are 2 trailheads within minutes of the doorstep that lead into the Lincoln National Forest. Also, at the entrance of Cedar Creek there is a jogging/fitness trail as well as a day-use picnic area. The cabin is centrally located within minutes of Ruidoso Mid-town shopping and Ski Apache. Also nearby is the airport, Flying J Chuck wagon dinner and show, the local grocery store, movie theatre, restaurants and excellent trout fishing at Bonita Lake.

About DeLana Huston

We are Randy and DeLana Huston from Stephenville, Texas. We have enjoyed the Ruidoso area for many years with our family - three daughters and a son. After many years of searching for the perfect getaway for our family, we had just about given up when in Summer of 2009 we were blessed to find this charming cabin. We hope that you can come and enjoy the scenery, wildlife and the cooler temperatures, just as we have over the past year. We welcome you and enjoy your stay!

DeLana Huston purchased this cabin in 2009

Why DeLana Huston chose New Mexico

We love the area and enjoy getting away from the Texas heat. Excellent wildlife and peace and quiet. Great area to get away from work and just relax.

What makes this cabin unique

The abundance of deer, listening to the creek across the road, going on hikes, enjoying all of God's beauty in the area.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Perfect size and set up for our little family.

We cooked and ate on a deck every morning and night watching deers and birds. We enjoyed all the little details of the house that made us feel so welcome and comfy at the cabin.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time. The cabin was well provisioned, clean, and charmingly decorated. We had beautiful weather and treasured the time sitting out on the deck/porch watching the wildlife. The hummingbird and bird feeders were particularly active. Would definitely recommend and, given the chance, return to the cabin.

A potential negative is the lack of internet and spotty cell phone reception in the cabin. While some might consider that an advantage, for those of us who need to stay in touch with elderly parents at home, it's a little more than an inconvenience.

Just like I remembered it

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Heaven Sent five years ago and chose to stay there again. It was just like I remembered with some added improvements. An additional short flight of stairs have been added to the bottom of the stairs making it easier to get up to the house. And the new roof over the deck is wonderful. It rained once or twice while we were there and it was so nice to be able to sit out on the deck instead of having to stay inside. The peace and quiet were just what we needed.

Loved the cabin. The deck and fire pit were such a nice surprise.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights. The cabin was clean and well stocked. The ability to feed the deer and birds kept the wildlife coming around. Sitting around the fire pit in the early morning and late evenings was so enjoyable.

Truly sent from heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cozy cabin with a high deck that makes you feel you're part of nature. Sitting out there hearing sounds from birds and seeing deer up so close was an amazing experience. Fully equipped kitchen saved us from having to eat out every day.

Also Very close to hiking trails. I highly recommend it!

Absolutely love the location, serenity and cleanliness of your Heaven Sent cabin.

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year in a row that we have been Blessed to stay at this same cabin. We feel fortunate that we can plan ahead with the owner when we find out our Spring Break dates. Kids love the location and able to feed the deer. We love the deck and fire pit to watch and enjoy. Close to everything but still out in the woods.
