About Lisa Haag

My husband and I live in the Houston area. We are avid pilots and live at an airport. We love to fly, ski, and travel. We have a dog and a cat that both travel with us. We own a business called Federal Wage and Labor Law Institute which makes and sells labor law posters.

Lisa Haag purchased this Cabin in 1975

Why Lisa Haag chose Ruidoso

Mark's family vacationed in Ruidoso from San Antonio throughout his childhood. He loved the quaintness of the town and the skiing. Not to metion some of the best horse racing is here and a beautiful new casino and resort. Ruidoso has something for everyone.

What makes this Cabin unique

The location is convenient to the Ski Apach resort, The Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort and Casino, and Ruidoso Downs Horse Race Track. You can also walk only one street to enter the National Forest. The views are spectacular, and the mountain air is refreshing. This is truly a place to get away from it all.

                                                  Place was simple, but comfortable.

                                                  Served our needs very well.

                                                  I am glad you enjoyed your stay and that it met your needs.

                                                  great cabin

                                                  Luis A.

                                                  we had a great time, we loved the location, we recommend it

                                                  Comfy and quiet

                                                  Stephanie M.

                                                  Nice home in a very quiet and beautiful area. Only complaint was that the pilot light on the heater kept getting blown out, but that was easily resolved.

                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                  I am glad that you had a good time. I am sorry about the pilot light, and I will try to have that issue fixed immediately. Thank you for renting our home.

                                                  Great property!

                                                  Robin M.

                                                  This is our second time to stay at this property and we have enjoyed it both times. Everything is as described. It is clean and beds are comfortable.

                                                  Great Getaway

                                                  Leslie V.

                                                  Spent Thanksgiving with the family at this Getaway and enjoyed every minute of it. Everything we needed was in the home and anything we forgot was 5 minutes away at the local Albertsons. Heater was a little loud but we switched to nighttime fires in the fireplace that heated the entire area.

                                                  This place is great!

                                                  Jim W.

                                                  We planned a long weekend without children in Ruidoso. Found this place to be very affordable, quiet, and well kept. Neighborhood is nice and not a lot of traffic. There is a great view of Sierra Blanca from the deck where there is always a cool pine scented breeze. We will be back!

                                                  So glad that you enjoyed it. The view is beautiful. I hope that you will be back.
