Access, Weather, and Wildlife


(Cool)
Cabin is set at 7500 feet, which averages about 8 degrees cooler in the summer from downtown, and 15 degrees cooler than the El Paso/Albuquerque/Lubbock southwest! Visitors from the Dallas or Houston area will notice that while Sandy's Place is in the mountains, it still carries LOW humidity.

(Access)
Sandy's Cottage is easily accessed from US 70 through downtown Ruidoso, New Mexico--yet retains it's quiet charm off a gravel access road that accommodates two full-time residences and this home. Easy accessibility in spring, summer, and fall by any vehicle: winter months might require 4-wheel drive depending on conditions.

(Wildlife)
Deer, raccoons, elk, and bear can be daily attractions: Sandy's Cottage has two deer troughs--some female deers will eat out of your hand!
