About Betty Slay

Our family has been at this spot since the 60’s, where there was once a plank-on-plank cabin.

The old cabin was replaced with the RIVERDECK CABIN with a deck right on the river at what is now Main Road and Slay Road.

Succeeding generations have been enjoying the activities that Ruidoso has to offer: hiking, fishing, horse racing and horseback riding, as well as skiing and snowboarding.

We enjoy the nights out to dinner in the village and the strolls down main street shops, as well as the occasional side trip to nearby attractions.

We’re sure that you will enjoy a visit here as have our family and guests, most of which have been returning year after year.

Why Betty Slay chose Ruidoso

Family owned and operated since 1985.

What makes this cabin unique

Ruidoso, the regional hub of Lincoln County, NM, offers horse racing, golfing, biking, fishing, hiking, museums and performing arts as well as skiing and snowboarding at Ski Apache on Sierra Blanca.

Great place to stay

This was our first time to Ruidoso and we love it. The owner was very welcoming and had many suggestions of things to do. The cabin was very cozy and clean. Had exactly what we needed.

The cabin, the owner (Betty) and the location were perfect. Even when it rained, you could sit on the porch and be refreshed and at peace. The cabin had everything one could need, and was clean and cool! Even tho there is no air conditioning, the rooms stayed pleasant and at night were superb! Can't say enough about Betty and her wonderful place - beautiful landscaping outside and décor inside. We walked to downtown for Starbucks. And got to feed the deer from our back porch every morning and evening. Couldn't have asked for more. A wonderful respite from July heat back home in Dallas.

Clean little cabin on the river

  • 4 of 5

My kids and I stayed at the Riverbend B cabin. The cabin was very clean and had all of the necessities that you would need to cook a basic meal. The location was quiet and peaceful. The back yard was on the river, and beautiful! The owners live next door, and they were very friendly and not obtrusive. The only thing I didn't like was that the cabin has no air conditioning, and if you're like me, you want an AC when it's 85 degrees outside. It did cool off in the evenings, of course, but we had to leave the Windows open, and I don't like leaving windows open when I sleep for safety reasons. This cabin would be perfect in the winter! Also- bring your own pillows. Other than that, I highly recommend this cabin!

Perfect spot for anything and everything in Ruidoso and surrounding areas!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in 101B Slay Road over the 4th of July weekend. We liked the location a lot since it's right off a main road through Ruidoso which easily connects to the highways going out of town. There are a lot of things to do outside of Ruidoso like the Spencer Theater, Fort Stanton, Lincoln, Capulin, and tons of walking trails through the national forest and around lakes.

We were immediately impressed by how maintained this cabin is on the outside! It looked brand new when we pulled up. It has a small front porch and it looks just like a mountain cabin should look! The deck in the back was equally perfect. We ate almost every meal outside because of this.

Inside looks like it was professionally decorated with the area bear motif in prominent display. We also liked all of the deer décor, as well. All of the furniture was in good condition. The TV has cable and a DVD player hooked to it. The couch is plenty big enough to sleep on. The beds were very comfortable with a wide assortment of pillows to choose from. We liked that we could open the windows to let the fresh air in at night while still having the blinds drawn to keep out light. There is some traffic noise since it is close to a major road but stopped every evening by 10pm. Every room had a ceiling fan to help keep it cool. We were there during 90 degree weather and we were comfortable. The closets were big and had hangers in them. Each room also has a huge dresser and night stands to store stuff in. Plus bedside lamps which I always love.

The yard was just beautiful! A lot of places just let the yard go native but this yard had an abundance of plants, bushes and green grass. The owner also had flower pots on the front and back porch which made us feel at home. Speaking of home, we were able to cook most of our meals since it had a full kitchen. One night we grilled steak outside!

The value was unbeatable considering the location, amenities, conveniences and beauty. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect! The cabin was beautiful and sitting on the deck by the river was so relaxing. We were welcomed the morning of our stay and contacted the day of our departure(a very personal touch). We will be returning and recommend this property highly!
