About E.V. Davidson

Our family has vacationed in Cloudcroft for 70 years. Our dad started coming up with friends when he was 17 to get out of the Texas heat. Later, family vacations with grandparents, cousins and friends created great memories.

Why E.V. Davidson chose New Mexico

We have owned this home for 15 years as a long-term rental and recently renovated and decorated it for vacation rental. It is comfortable and convenient to everything. It is our piece of Cloudcroft, which we have loved for a lifetime!

This home is located a short walk from gorgeous National Park hiking trails, the historic Lodge with a fine restaurant, popular golf course, and spa, and is a short drive to many other trails, scenic overlooks, and ski area. Hunters come from near and far for the elk, deer, bear and turkey. A wonderful museum entertains young and old, with a winter skating rink adding to the fun. The town offers shopping variety and several very good restaurants all within walking distance. Many local artists come for the views and inspiration. A small but scenic ski area is very close. A gorgeous 20 minute drive to Alamogordo offers roadside shops, fruit stands (in season) and views not to be missed. Further away is White Sands missile range and the observatory. Friday nights in the fall brings out team spirit as the Bears football team rules in their new stadium.

Great cabin in a good location. Well stocked and nicely furnished.

  • 4 of 5

The negative side was an odd odor but we found the source. There were two plug in room fragrances. We unplugged them and no further issues. Overall a great time! Would recommend to others.

Pleasant mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage turned out to be more spacious than we thought it would be from the photos and was a very pleasant place to spend a week. We both had to work while on this trip and the wifi worked fine for this purpose - we experienced no issues. We used the gas grill several times and enjoyed sitting on the front porch, occasionally interacting with some friendly neighbors and their dogs. The kitchen was fairly well equipped, though the pots and pans have seen better days (as is typical for a vacation rental). We didn't use the washer and dryer, but the laundry room looked to be in good shape. The property has very convenient access to the Rim Trail, just a short walk down the road. Truly the only negative, which didn't bother us much at all, was a skunk smell that waxed and waned throughout our stay. We considered that just part of the rustic charm of the place and evidence of our proximity to wildlife :-) Would recommend!

Cozy rental in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Cozy cabin with tons of character! Location is great, an easy walk to the center of the village, close to the beautiful hikes, and right across from the golf course. The neighbors next door have multiple bird feeders attracting numerous beautiful birds (neighbors are super friendly too!), so be sure to spend a few minutes bird watching. This cabin would be great for a family as there is alot of space - My husband, dog and I had more than enough room to relax. Cloudcroft is definitely a place to just kick back and we LOVED the cool weather in July!

Nice place as advertised.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed 3 nights at this location. Great to get into the pines and the elevation to escape the heat. A little too far to walk to Cloudcroft given the elevation and the hills. Pretty clean and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Yards not completely fenced so not perfect for dog. Good wifi and comfortable living room. Good spot to use as a base for scenic drives and White Sands. We would stay here again.
