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.

Great location and great owners!

My wife and I have been coming to Ruidoso for 20 years. This was by far the best location yet. The river is right off your back porch. Deer, elk and birds abound. Comfy cabin and great owners!

Love this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in many cabins over the years, but have never stayed in such a clean and well stocked cabin. The owners have gone above and beyond in making it feel comfortable and like a home away from home. The river off of the back deck was awesome!
