About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Elk Hollow Getaway is a comfortably decorated, two bedroom, two bath cabin with spacious covered decks surrounded by tall pines and has all the comforts of home, including wifi and expanded satellite TV for those football games you fellows like to watch. Elk Hollow is located only a few miles from Cloudcroft, and sits on several lots allowing you room to enjoy the sunshine and private wooded location. We call our cabin Elk Hollow, because at dawn and dusk the elk will stroll down the hollow beside and below the cabin. Sometimes you will see herds of 25-30 elk around the cabin..

In the great room, the ledge-rock gas fireplace will warm you during chilly evenings. The well-equipped kitchen has everything you need including instant hot water. Use the gas barbecue grill on the deck while enjoying a spectacular view of the Sacramento Mountains. There is a pond just down the road from the cabin where you can feed the many fish. There is also a nice hiking trail through the Lincoln National Park just beyond the pond.

The bedrooms at Elk Hollow are very nicely decorated, have ceiling fans and both have nice views. Both bathrooms have heaters in addition to central gas heating.

Elk Hollow is located in a private community where the roads are maintained year round. The community has no really steep hills, so driving and walking is a pleasure. It is advisable, however, to use a four-wheel drive vehicle or chains during winter months.

There is abundant wildlife in the area. You may see elk, whitetail and mule deer, bears, raccoons, chipmunks, rabbits, turkeys, and a huge variety of birds. Several varieties of hummingbirds make their home in the Southern Rocky Mountains from April through Mid-September.

Just minutes away from our cabin is the Cloudcroft Lodge and Golf Course, four Village Tennis Courts, Ski Cloudcroft, the Village Ice Skating Rink, Zenith park where you can picnic and BBQ. There is also a playground, shopping, the Cloudcroft Museum, bakery, winery, and restaurants. Browsing the quaint shops in the village is a must.

One stay at Elk Hollow will bring you back. The combination of stylish country decor, refreshing crisp mountain air added to the fabulous Sacramento Mountain view, makes this one of Cloudcroft's best rental cabins. Come see for yourself why Elk Hollow is the perfect solution to your mountain get-a-way no matter what the occasion.

We provide snow discs for your use on our hillside, or you may take them to Ski Cloudcroft ( 3 miles away) to use on their tubing hill, or they can be used on the sand dunes at White Sands National Park.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband, Bill, retired from the Air Force with 26 years of service and I had a career as a Realtor specializing in corporate and military relocation. We've lived all over the USA including Washington, DC, MD, PA, SC, FL, CO, UT, TX, NV, and overseas in Japan and Korea.

Why the Owner Chose Cloudcroft, NM, USA:
We fell in love with Cloudcroft after visiting friends there in 2003. We enjoyed living in the mountains previously, so we decided to build a second home in Cloudcroft once we found the perfect location. At Elk Hollow we provide everything you need to make your vacation a wonderful experience. We want all of our guests to feel as though Elk Hollow is their own little piece of heaven.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Well, you just can't beat the view from Elk Hollow! Mountain views and woodland views from all rooms, and Elk Hollow has a large, fully covered wrap-around deck and gas BBQ for your enjoyment. We also have Wi-Fi and 3 TV's and 2 DVD players. We furnish all condiments, herbs, spices, coffee and even birdseed. If you're visiting for the wildlife, then we've got it. It is not uncommon to see herds of elk in our yard and throughout the neighborhood. We have a large pond down the road where you can feed the many fish, and just across the pond is a hiking trail through the Lincoln National Forest. We furnish sand/snow discs for winter use, or they can be used to sled down the sand dunes at White Sands National Monument in Alamogordo. To see over 290 photos, and three videos from the Wendel's vacation at Elk Hollow, just copy and paste the following link to your internet browser:
