Texas Treehouse Log Cabin Mountain Getaway with Hot Tub!

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,400 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The Texas Treehouse gets its name from being built on the side of the mountain. The views from the covered wrap around deck are spectacular.

This cozy log cabin was completed by the owners in 2000, and consists of 2400 sq. ft. The secluded property will require four wheel drive vehicles or chains in the winter however it is well worth the drive!

The loft has an awesome view and doubles as a bedroom with two twin beds as well as two sofas, TV and game table. Ceiling fans are throughout the cabin. Each of the three TV’s are accompanied with a DVD/video player. The corner rock fireplace in the great room can be seen from the loft, kitchen and dining areas.

Views of the valley, ponderosa pine and pinion trees are breath-taking. Deer and turkey are frequent visitors, elk and bear come by occasionally.

We do not allow smoking or pets in our home.

About Rhetta Riley

We own Clark Riley Insurance in Abernathy, Texas and I am a Realtor with Keller Williams Realty. We have two children who helped us clear the lot and build the cabin, so we have a lot of family pride in this cabin. Lots of friends and family helped through the two years it took us to complete the building. We love the mountains and all Mother Nature has to offer.

Rhetta Riley purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Rhetta Riley chose Ruidoso

We had owned a smaller property in the same area before we built the cabin. We looked in other areas, but always felt the upper canyon area was home.

What makes this cabin unique

We love to relax and enjoy the mornings on the deck with coffee and a fresh baked muffin. The deer and turkey are always entertaining and of course the hummingbirds in their season. In skiing season, the hot tub relaxes those aching muscles that haven't been used in a while. Evenings on the deck or in the cabin are enjoyed reading, playing cards or just visiting with good friends.

Above and Beyond your expectation!

  • 5 of 5

I must say this home far exceeded my expectations! The Riley's have gone to great lengths to make sure you feel at home. You lack for nothing, it's been thought of and provided! It provides the perfect seclusion outside so you feel you are the only ones on the mountain. The hot tub is in a perfect location (if you're smart enough to figure out where it is). LOL We counted 20 humming birds and the view is incredible. I go to Ruidoso every year and this will certainly be the 'go to' home! You won't regret it!! I hesitate to rave too much because then I may not even be able to rent it again!! Thank you Rhetta for your hospitality!

The owners of this property have done a phenomenal job of making sure this cabin is the place to stay in Ruidoso. Everything was clean and in excellent condition. The few times I had to contact the owner, they were very accommodating. Great cabin!

Great cabin with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We relaxed and so much more! The wrap around porch was the perfect place to drink coffee and watch the hummingbirds, deer and turkey that frequently visited the cabin. At night, it was the spot where we enjoyed a glass of wine and enjoyed the cool mountain breeze while rehashing our day.

While not at this awesome cabin: We zip-lined at Ski Apache, rode go carts and bumper boats, fished, shopped, went to the horse races and the casino.

Such a fun family vacation!
