Guestbook comments from the manager

We booked our trip looking for a relaxing get a away. This place was perfect. It was tucked away in the tall pines, but only a few minutes from town by drive and we could get what we needed or eat out. The cabin has a great feel inside and the kitchen was perfect for the meals we cooked at the house. We will definitely be back next year again.

Fall is here! Beautiful Cabin with Tall Trees with Large Deck & Hot Tub
average rating of 3.875 based on 18 reviews

We loved our stay! Beautiful home in a beautiful area. Very convenient for skiing.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time over spring break. Two families stayed here including four adults and nine children ranging in age from 17 to 4. We were all comfortable and had plenty of space. We enjoyed the game room with a poker table and pool table. The owners were very attentive to our questions and needs. They sent an electrician the next day when the lights were not working. We had hiking right out the front door and enjoyed looking at the stars while in the hot tub at night. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend.

Owner's Response: Great to have you! Thanks for keeping in touch during your stay. We love the area to hike in and the new trails make it even that much better. Maybe the snow will be a little better the next time you come.

Quiet and Cozy

  • 4 of 5

While this house is a bit older, it makes up for it with size. The remodeled kitchen was awesome, there was plenty of room for a large group of vacationers and the game room offered plenty of space and activities for the kids/teens. Communication with the home owner was a bit lacking. For example, there was no where to put the garbage and no instructions left to offer a solution (we also called and received no answer). Aside from a couple minor plumbing issues (community restroom toilet had trouble filling, the top story shower had very little water and the hot tub could give you a little shock if you were on the outside dipping your hand in), our trip was trouble free and enjoyable. If you expect perfection, this is not the place for you, but if you want a huge house at a great price with extra amenities, this is right down your alley.

Owner's Response: Hi there.. I am sorry you didnt catch us. We did travel out of the country and had a few days without service, but we did not have a voice mails. Again we are sorry about that. There should have been instructions that is sent from the VRBO hospitality to your email. I will check and make sure that system is working. We have not had anyone not get those. We did see that you had left the trash outside and the critters made quite a mess of it. None the less, Alto has a village trash area to protect any wildlife and prevent bear issues that is up by the Kokopelli golf course. Never had any issues with the hot tub, but will have our guys take a look at it. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Wonderful Retreat

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful retreat! We spent four nights and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Plenty of room, ample supplies, convenient to Ruidoso. Spent most of our time on the deck, due for a planned makeover this fall, and which offers a beautiful view of the woods. Nice hot tub, although not all jets work and the cover is difficult to remove and replace. A bonus for us - the nearby trail head leading to one- to 2.5-mile walks near or around Alto Lake. Our peaceful commune with nature was broken only by the occasional hiker using the driveway to get to the trail head. As a long-time Ruidoso renter I was surprised to see a requirement to either buy a $59 damage insurance policy OR leave a $1,500 deposit (which says in fine print it may or may not be returned). Just something to be aware of. Would definitely recommend for multi-families - cabin has two masters.

I would recommend it... great stay, enough space for about 16 people. Close to town, not far from everything.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying and the great review. Again, sorry about the delay getting you in on Friday. The previous renters had left such a mess, we had to do extra cleaning. Glad you had a great time! Also, thanks for letting me know about the table. We will get it all fixed up.

Not happy.

  • 2 of 5

The house was nice, the area was great. I know the circumstances were not the owners fault, but when we arrived the cabin had not been cleaned. I contacted the owner and he could not get ahold of the service he uses. We went ahead and cleaned the cabin, took the bedding to a laundry mat to clean them all quickly. So the owner said he would reimburse us for our expenses. He said he would pay for our dinner. So he reimbursed us for dinner and laundry. But we still had to pay a cleaning fee?!?! That doesn't make sense! I asked for a refund of the cleaning fee but I was not given that. I appreciate the refund he did give, but I do not think it was fair that we had to pay for the cleaning fee.

Owner's Response: Hey Julie, I have requested for the refund for the cleaning. The cleaning fee on your charge is for the stay you had. The previous renter somehow deleted the insurance and something failed on the check out and our cleaning company was never notified. I have not heard back on exactly how to handle it. Checking on it again. I did do all we could and sent the request for the amount you did recieve. I hope you can understand mistakes do happen. Message me privately is we still need to do more. I will be in touch on fees
