Our first visit to Cloudcroft was in 2004. We had recently moved to El Paso from Oregon and had heard that Cloudcroft, just a short drive away, had forests like we enjoyed in Oregon. We decided to take a camping trip with our one-year old boy and our dog. After a great campfire cookout, we called it a night. At about 2:00 am, we heard our dog barking and opened the tent to quiet her. Instead we found ourselves next to a large black bear. We managed to scare the bear away, but decided against another night sleeping with just tent fabric between a bear and myself. We went into town the next day to look for a rental cabin. While we were waiting for the cabin, we drove around Cloudcroft and completely fell in love with the village and the forest. We saw some property for sale that backed into the National Forest and bought it the same day. A year later we began construction on a log home and named it Bear Ridge Log Home. We had the bear paw carvings included in the design in memory of our bear.
Kristine purchased this Cabin in 2005
Why Kristine chose Cloudcroft
A handcrafted log home is a home built with full round logs using many handheld tools such as axes, chisels and scribers. It captures the authenticity of log homes built many years ago. Log homes usually fall into two categories, milled (or manufactured) and Handcrafted. With a milled homes mechanized high-speed woodworking machinery are used to precut uniform logs. The logs are usually no more than 8 in. in diameter and 12 ft. long. With a handcrafted log home logs will vary in size and shape and are limited only by the trees. Bear Ridge log home is a Handcrafted log home built by three expert carvers at Pioneer Log Homes. It uses an average of 16 in diameter logs some over 35 ft long, and integrates many of the unique characteristics of the logs in the home. The artistic logs, benches, front arch, and bear paws were part of the creative woodworking skill of the carvers. There is no other home designed like it.

Hiking through Licoln National Forest was a breathtaking experience." El Paso, TX “We enjoyed our stay at the Bear Ridge Lodge!

We would like to Thank You for sharing this amazing cabin with us. We had the best time ever.” Malaua, NM Loving, NM "This has been one of the most wonderful trips of my life.

We created a lot of memories that we will take back to New Braunfels. Thanks for sharing your little piece of heaven with us.” New Brainfels, TX “We had a great time here! The house is beautiful! We loved sitting in front of the fire and watching the snow fall in the woods.” Athens, TX “What an absolutely beautiful home. We feel blessed you shared it with us. The kids all went into the woods and were amazed by the sheer size of it all. When we travel, we always rent cabins or stay in B&B’s and I must say this is by far the nicest home we have ever had the pleasure of staying at” Staton, TX
