About Mike & Monica

We enjoy the serenity of the forrest, yet exploring the land of enchantment. From golf, fishing, hiking, skiing, tubing, to shopping, the fun never ends. Local casino's, Irish pub with live music or racetrack are great for an adult getaway or miniature golf and horse back riding with the kids! Great restaurants and shopping. If we are not in the mood for entertainment, nothing beats sitting on one of two of the decks grilling, enjoying the sounds of the season creek.

Why Mike & Monica chose Ruidoso

We want this to be your recurrent Ruidoso getaway. Making you feel at home is our goal, which is why we have placed every piece of decor, from the decorative pillows to the kitchen utensils, in our cabin for your use and convenience. Our goal is to have you enjoy our place as much as we do! This life is not a trial run. Do things and stay in places that are worth every minute.

What makes this cabin unique

Located on one acre provides privacy yet two minutes driving distance to town. The A-line frame allows for tall windows of spectacular views & sunshine. If privacy & relaxation are needed, there are shutters on every window and remote control blinds for tall windows. Central heating and cooling is a major plus. Gas grill on deck and indoor gas fireplace offer great convenience. Both east and west facing decks to enjoy sunrises and sunsets. Audible seasonal creek provides a tranquil setting. Fully stocked kitchen ready for your home cooked meals. Frequent animal sightings of deer, elk, & turkeys. This place is a must see!

A wonderful, restful vacation in a beautiful setting. Would love to make a return trip.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin, itself, was comfortable, attractively furnished, and contained everything we needed for our stay. Its location was ideal. A beautiful natural setting with easy access to Ruidoso. We particularly enjoyed sitting out on the covered deck with its great views, and getting to see so many deer who were regular visitors. The owners, Mike and Monica, also helped make this a special vacation. They were so helpful in answering any questions we had both before and during our trip.

It’s wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The house is not huge but the lay out and their use of the space makes it feel really roomy. Our 3 kiddos and us had plenty of space to spread out. Our oldest loved the loft area. The fireplace and living room area are so comfortable and the House was very clean. The decks are perfect for cups of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night. The location is perfect for a quick trip into town. Can’t say enough good things about our experience. We will definitely be renting this one again!!

Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect! Convenient to town and local attractions yet feels remote with trees and wildlife abound. Feeding the deer with her babes, the big bluebirds and even the red headed woodpecker while sipping coffee on the covered deck is a great way to start the day. Slept soundly at night after exploring the nearby sights, dining at one of the local spots then soaking in the jetted tub. Ahhh, nice vacation! Thank you for sharing your home.

Great mountain vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great house. My daughter loved sleeping in the loft. Great location, not far from town; however, it has the remote feel. Mule deer came up every morning and night. Ate apples right from my daughter's hand. Huge elk visited us as well. The covered back deck is excellent for when it rains. Only issue was the steep driveway. My rear wheel truck couldn't get out, tires kept spinning in gravel. However, there is a flat parking spot at top. 100% recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the time you took to leave a great review. We greatly appreciate it. The gravel can get loose from the street when there is rainfall and flows into the driveway as it is at a decline. We have since gotten in touch with the city to place a berm to block the street gravel when there is heavy rain. We always appreciate feedback and thank you for staying!

Very close to town, but the location of the cabin is on a very quiet & private lot.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean and well equipped with all the comforts of home. We enjoyed having our evening wine on the covered patio watching the deer go by. Wonderful time and we would definitely go back if we get back to Ruidoso. Thank you Mike and Monica for 4 great days.
