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!

To our guests

Sandy's Cottage is a quiet cabin retreat in the mountains of Ruidoso, New Mexico. We are looking for visitors that will respect the environs and the full-time neighbors that live in the area. If you are looking for a quiet spot to enjoy the cool air, the native wildlife, yet accessibility to shopping/casinos (3), racetrack, golf, and over 25 restaurants all within ten minutes from Sandy's Cottage--then, Sandy's Cottage is for you.

nice enough

  • 3 of 5

This "cottage" was comfortable but not as great as I imagined. First, getting to it was a challenge. Very steep hills, glad I had a four wheel drive. Location kitchen utensils, silverware, was just not intuitive, not a big deal but annoying. The electrical set up is frightening. So many plugs, extension cords, too many piggyback plugs, my wife thinks it is a fire hazard. When I went out to cook our steak on the grill I discovered there was no gas tank under the grill. again no big deal I went next door to the other cottage and used that grill, but it was annoying. So we were comfortable enough and made our way, but it was too expensive for what we got.

Perfect Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 10-day stay at Sandy's Cottage. It was the perfect mountain retreat and exceeded all our expectations. The cabin is well-stocked with all the comforts of home, and the large wraparound deck was the perfect place to sit for hours and enjoy the mountain views and abundant wildlife. There are lots of nearby walks including beautiful Perk Canyon Trail just blocks away. The owners are responsive to email and are a delight to work with. Being able to have our little dog with us added greatly to our enjoyment of the trip. We look forward to returning!

House was just as described.

Everything worked and was very nice. The house truly does have everything you need plus the things you forgot.
