About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Welcome to our Red Log Cabin! You can enjoy Ruidoso's peace and pine-scented mountain air from the spacious deck spanning the front of the cabin, where you can see grazing deer wandering through the valley, caw at a crow, or just enjoy our peaceful woodsy neighborhood as you relax or man the grill. As you enter the mudroom, deposit your clothes, luggage & groceries and move into the open living space. With 180 degrees worth of windows, you get the view inside as well as on the patio and a great area for hanging out - the open kitchen, dininng and living area with huge open wood trusses, reclaimed wood floors, elk antler chandelier over a 10-person table, and an old wood stove under open stairway to the loft. For privacy, 2 queen bedrooms nestle behind the tub/shower bath with washer/dryer - that is unless someone decides to plunk out a tune on the electric organ. Upstairs is a couple of recliners and another queen bed and tub bath. Just a brisk walk or short drive to downtown & miles of shopping or to the grocery in opposite direction. About 1300 square feet of enjoyment with central heat and air conditioning, one full bath downstaris and a tub bath upstairs, DVD/VCR/TV up & down - no cable but you can play CDs on DVD players. No WiFi. Electric mattress pads on downstairs beds & heat rising keeps you toasty in winter. Sorry ... NOT handicap accessible and NO pets please. Sheets, towels and pillows provided as well as starter set of toilet paper, paper towels, dish & laundry soap and coffee.

A lovely, quaint cabin! Very peaceful!!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just as described! Very cute and homey! We had a really nice, quiet stay! We even saw some deer right outside the window! We also saw a beautiful herd of elk at the cemetery with soooo many baby elk, still with their spots! This is a beautiful location! Everything was perfect! Thanks for sharing you sweet cabin with us!
