About Dave and Vicki Moffatt

Vicki and I live in Austin Texas and personally renovated a great deal of the interior and rear decking. I'm a Boston native and she's a Texan-so we have an interesting time figuring out each other's accents! I work in the leadership development field and Vicki taught private voice and is now retired. Visiting the cabin 3-4 times a year to stay and vacation/work is one of our favorite things to do. Vicki is a highly creative and hard-working renovation 'hobbyist', and this cabin has been one of her favorite projects. Me-I'm the janitor and handyman. We don't have any kids, but we do have two dogs and a cat. One of the reasons we chose this cabin is the fenced yard and deck which allows dogs to have some roaming area.

Dave and Vicki Moffatt purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Dave and Vicki Moffatt chose New Mexico

When I first moved out west from Boston I ended up in New Mexico, and used to ride my motorcycle up into Cloudcroft. I promised myself I would one day buy a cabin in the Sacramento Mountains, and finally did it! New Mexico is a special place for us-my Mom and niece live in Las Cruces. Cloudcroft is a perfect getaway for us because it's so small and relatively undeveloped (compared to nearby Ruidoso). Getting up to the mountains is something we plan for and anticipate all year.

What makes this cabin unique

The deck did it for us-looks out at the mountains and a wonderful view of the meadows. It's surrounded and protected by huge pine trees that provide great shade for reading. We just installed a high-efficiency woodstove that just about heats the whole place in the winter. And it's great for dogs, especially the smaller breeds. The deck is up high and the railings are fenced so dogs can't slip through. This is a unique cabin-we get lots of repeat vacationers who say they love the place. The kitchen is fully stocked and great for preparing meals-the breakfast nook is a great place to drink coffee and look at the forest. Plus, there's a finished play room below the deck with an electric fireplace and a small pool table, TV and PlayStation-great place to stash the kids or getaway to do some quiet reading. What we love about this place is it's out of town by just 7 miles, hidden on a hillside with a dirt packed road, so it's a super quiet area. Feels like we have it all to ourselves, and there is lots of walking!

Quirky, Fun Cabin in the woods close to Cloudcroft

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved staying in this sweet 2 bedroom cabin!! It is full of color and quirky details while providing a very clean, comfortable stay. Everything you need has been provided including bowls and a fenced yard for the dogs! I would love to see 2 beds upstairs so the living room stays clear of sleepers on the sofa , but that's just a personal preference. Can't wait to visit Cloudcroft and especially The Teddy Cloud Cabin again!! Thank you SO MUCH!!!

Awesome Puppy Playard!

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was clean and quaint. We LOVED the fully enclosed dog yard and that we could bring our pets for a reasonable fee. It was a beautiful, cool, relaxing escape from the Texas heat. The only concern was the cabin's closeness to the highway. While it's not a super busy highway, it was definitely frequently travelled, as it's the main road into and out of Cloudcroft and on to Alamogordo on the west side of Cloudcroft. (Lots of motorcyclists in the summertime.) However, it quieted down plenty for sleeping at night.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kara, We love that the dog yard is nice and handy too and that when the gates are just so, you can open the front door and let them out. I'll bet your dogs enjoyed the cooler weather too! We appreciate the great review!

Beautiful, clean, well maintained mountain cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Teddy Cloud!! It is a beautiful cabin in a beautiful stretch of mountains. The cabin was so cozy and so clean and the perfect spot for my husband and I to escape the Texas heat and have some R & R. The porch was our favorite spot! The bed is comfortable and the kitchen is very well stocked with whatever you might need, however, there is no grocery store in Cloudcroft so come prepared or take a lovely drive to Alamogordo to Albertsons. We do hope to be able to return to Teddy Cloud again!!!

Thumbs up for Teddy Cloud

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Teddy Cloud. The cabin is very interesting and well-stocked. Loved sitting on the wrap-around porch. Only complaint would be the sloped ceiling in the MBR. Not easy for a 6" + person to maneuver. After three days of head-bumping, my maneuvering did improve. With temps above 100 degrees in Midland, we wish we were back at Teddy Cloud!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for giving us a thumbs up and it sounds like you had the kind of time you wanted! I'm so sorry about your head bumping. So many cabins in Cloudcroft have those sloped ceilings and ours is no exception. The bed used to be in the middle of the room facing the stairs but when you got out of bed your head would would hit each and every time no matter how tall you were. We've only had one other person say that and he was also really tall. Now that you know how to maneuver the slopes, we hope you'll come back to stay at Teddy Cloud again. You were a great guest so thank you. Dave and Vicki Moffatt

Cozy, Comfortable and Private

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Teddy Cloud. The cabin itself was clean and fully stocked for all our needs. It was cozy, and we loved the fenced yard for our dog. The only negative would be the noise from the main highway, although it was not bad enough to keep us from coming back. We look forward to staying there again in the near future. Thank you so much for opening up your lovely cabin to us.
